DuroMax XP10000EH Review
DuroMax XP10000EH, 8000 Running Watts/10000 Starting Watts, Dual Fuel Powered Portable Generator
Are you looking for a premium generator which is slightly different than most others on the market? Then the DuroMax XP10000EH is for you. This model is a hybrid, fully capable of meeting the toughest challenges. Additionally, we will mention some of the advanced features it comes with.
The main advantage or the most interesting feature of the unit in question is its engine. At the first sight, we have a conventional, gas-powered engine, which uses petrol to produce inner combustion. However, when the petrol is unavailable, the engine can run on LPG (liquid propane). There are no a lot of generators on the market with this capability, so we were impressed straight away. LPG consumption is slightly higher than petrol, but it is cheaper so we can say that fuel-energy production ratio is better. An engine is an 18HP unit, suitable for the most demanding applications.
Fully adjustable voltage
The generator has another, sophisticated feature. It can produce 120V electricity and 240V at the same time. This feature allows to users to use multiple devices at the same time. Then we have the ability to use 120V only, but with full power. When the 240V isn’t required, maximum output at 120V is 8000 watts, while the starting is 10.000 watts. The ability is beneficial for those who need a generator for job side usages or for RV purposes.
Safe and reliable
A few years ago, generator users had to spend hours in maintaining their devices and adjusting them for optimal electricity production. With this model, all what a user should do is start it and all is done. On one side, we see simplicity, but behind the covers, we can see spark arrestors, AC and DC regulators and low oil protection, which shuts down the engine is there is no enough oil in the engine. It should be mentioned that if the 4-stroke engine runs without or with low oil level, severe damages will occur to the crankshaft, bearings, and pistons! Addition: Only synthetic and semi-synthetic engine oils can be mixed. Mineral oils must be used separately.
Recoil and electric start
Starting the engine is possible via electric start system or with recoil system. Obviously, the electric start system is beneficial for most users and it is used in 99% cases. Only when the battery is worn out or damaged, recoil system can be used. This is a great alternative if we know that the unit is designed for usages in nature, while camping, on job sites. The bottom line is that generator will work in conditions when ordinary models cannot start.
The DuroMax XP10000EH is an advanced generator, which means that it is suitable for heavy-duty applications. Tough chassis and engine, loaded with essential features and safety systems justify the claim. Add the hybrid engine and you may get the best generator of them all.
