Power & Run Time

The Genmax GM6000XiE in use

The Genmax GM6000XiE

The Genmax GM6000XiE's engine, 312 cc Dinking OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 5,250W and reaches a peak wattage of 6,000W.

At a noise rating of 70 dBA (just as noisy as a dishwasher), this inverter generator provides the choice between a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism or an easy-to-use and reliable electric starter (battery included) for starting.

With a full tank, the GM6000XiE can operate for up to 13 hours (fuel consumption around 0.29 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 3.8 gallons.

The GM6000XiE generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it comes equipped with 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) designed for hassle-free charging of various electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets, ensuring uninterrupted usage.

Since it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the GM6000XiE is tailored to be transfer switch ready, making it easy to connect it to your breaker box for home power support during outages.

Portability

Measuring L22.2 x W18.1 x H17.7 in, the classic open frame build of the Genmax GM6000XiE delivers stability and easy maintenance access to components, facilitating air circulation. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

With a weight of 106.9 lbs, the generator is still labeled as 'portable,' denoting its ability to be moved, although its heaviness might restrict easy portability. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its set of wheels (⌀8") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The GM6000XiE's control panel

To help you monitor the GM6000XiE's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the lifetime run hours.

In addition to this info, the light indicators show you if the generator is ready, the generator is overloaded and its oil levels are insufficient.

With its built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator provides quick and convenient gas level checks.

In terms of security, the generator features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), ensuring peace of mind during its use.

It also benefits from Genmax's CO DETECT technology, which is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down.

Alongside the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) for quick setup, the Genmax GM6000XiE is bundled with additional accessories: funnel and tool kit.

The Genmax GM6000XiE versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Genmax GM6000XiE compare to generators of similar power (between 4500 and 5500 W).

  • Regarding weight, the Genmax GM6000XiE comes in at only 106.9 pounds, positioning itself as one of the lighter options among generators spanning from 4500 to 5500 in rated wattage. Weight-conscious users may find the Champion 201238 appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 101.4 pounds.
  • As this inverter generator can emit noise as low as 70 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may want to take a look at the Honda EU7000iS. It's one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, rated at 52 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the GM6000XiE, reaching up to 13 hours at a 25% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. For those prioritizing autonomy, the DuroMax XP5500EH could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching up to 19 hours.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary to get the full picture. With a fuel usage of about 0.29 GPH at a 25% load, this inverter generator falls within the typical gasoline consumption range observed in comparably powerful products. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the DuroMax XP7000iH. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.19 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 4500-5500W inverter generators, the Genmax GM6000XiE is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
