Description

One of the largest inverters available on the market, the XP9000iH is excellent for home emergency backup or powering your jobsite. With clean power you can use this inverter with TV's, laptops, and other sensitive electronics.

Zoom on the DuroMax XP9000iH

In summary, the DuroMax XP9000iH is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP9000iH in use

The DuroMax XP9000iH

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP9000iH delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 7600W and a peak wattage of 9000W. When propane-powered, it has 7200 rated watts and 8550 peak watts. In addition, the device is parallel capable (XP9000iH-PK parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

DuroMax’s Switch On Demand technology allows you to switch from propane to gasoline or from gasoline to propane while the generator is running.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 68 dBA (less noisy than an office). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). The XP9000iH can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

The running time of the XP9000iH, with its 6.9 gallons fuel capacity, can reach up to 20 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.35 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 9 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.52 GPH).

As the XP9000iH produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

In addition, it provides 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP9000iH is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household. The unit also features an ATS plug, which makes it compatible with automatic transfer switches.

Portability

Since the DuroMax XP9000iH is an inverter generator, its closed design (L27 x W21 x H25 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

Since the generator weighs 237 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). Nevertheless, thanks to its set of 4 wheels (⌀4.5") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP9000iH

The XP9000iH's control panel

One of the many XP9000iH's features is the data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours, voltage, frequency and power output and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicators will display if the generator is overloaded, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is ready.

The inverter generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

The XP9000iH also benefits from DuroMax’s CO Alert carbon monoxide shutdown. If CO levels become unsafe or rapidly increase, the generator will automatically shut down, an indicator will light red, and the engine will not restart for 5 minutes. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the DuroMax XP9000iH's package also includes these accessories: propane hose, key fob, battery charger, tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP9000iH is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used in forested areas.

The DuroMax XP9000iH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP9000iH compare to generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • With its weight of 237 lbs, the DuroMax XP9000iH is one of the heavier generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage category. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Dewalt DXGNR8000, weighing just 183 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 68 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of similar power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Genmax GM9000iED, whose lowest noise levels reach just 62 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 20 hours at 25% load, the XP9000iH benefits from one of the highest run times among generators of a similar output.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.35 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is one of the most fuel efficient units within its wattage category.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the DuroMax XP9000iH is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
