Zoom on the Generac XG10000E

In short, the Generac XG10000E is a powerful portable generator adequately designed for professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure..

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

The Generac XG10000E in use

The Generac XG10000E

The Generac XG10000E's design includes a gasoline-fueled 530 cc (18 hp) Generac OHVI 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 10,000W and also a peak wattage of 12,500W.

This generator gets running thanks to a hassle-free and practical electric starter (battery included).

The XG10000E's fuel tank holds 10 gallons, ensuring uninterrupted operation for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption approximately 1 GPH).

The XG10000E ensures a clean sine wave output, boasting <5% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) to protect your sensitive electronics when connected to its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 7 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

Though it may not be labeled as 'RV Ready,' this Generac generator offers the benefit of hassle-free RV connectivity through its L5-30R receptacle, allowing you to easily power your RV with the assistance of an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XG10000E is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

Measuring L31.2 x W29.5 x H31.3 in, the Generac XG10000E showcases a classic open frame layout, guaranteeing stability and simple maintenance access to components, while facilitating air circulation. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Despite its weight of 300 lbs, the generator is considered 'portable,' signifying its capability to be moved, albeit its heaviness may hinder easy transport. Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The XG10000E's control panel

Designed with a digital data center, the control panel of the XG10000E grants you access to crucial data on the power output (via the PowerBar™) and lifetime run hours, ensuring practical monitoring of its status and activity. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

Thanks to its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently, and easily check the gas level at a glance.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Generac XG10000E, the following accessories are also included: oil and tool kit.

The Generac XG10000E versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Generac XG10000E compare to generators of similar power (between 9500 and 10500 W).

  • With its weight of 300 lbs, the Generac XG10000E is one of the heavier generators in the 9500-10500 rated wattage category. If weight is a key factor for your needs, the Westinghouse WGen9500TFc is noteworthy for being one of the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 203.4 pounds.
  • Offering around 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the XG10000E is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. If runtime is a priority for you, the Powerhorse 13000ES stands out as one of the generators with the longest run time in its power range, providing around 15 hours of continuous use.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. This generator is somewhat less fuel-efficient than devices of comparable output: its estimated fuel consumption reaches 1 GPH at a 50% load. If minimizing fuel usage is one of your key priorities, the Pulsar G12KBN is one of the most efficient devices with similar power output, with a gasoline consumption of only 0.67 gallons per hour.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Generac XG10000E vs DuroMax XP10000E.
