quality machine

just received my 8500. packaging was top notch. easy to attach handles and wheels, started on second pull. the instructions, however, left a lot to be desired. i had to call tech support to find out where the ground cable was for the onboard battery. all in all i am very satisfied with the machine.

Dura Max 8500E

Ordered it on June 30th and it arrived Fed-Ex July 7th in perfect shape. Not bad considering a Holiday and weekend in the middle. I already had the oil 10/30SAE and fresh gas. So I put the wheel kit together, put the gas and oil in and turned in on and two pulls and it started up right away. I am very happy with my purchase. Especially when I did price comparison with Home Depot, Lowes, and Sears. Generator Factory Outlet has them all beat. no tax or shipping. Great buy.

Great Generator for Price

This generator exceeded my expectations for the price paid. The only cons for this product is that the assembly material should be updated to reflect what you actually get with generator. Instead of plastic washers for the handles, you get steel washers and the wheels have no inflation valve as they are the never flat tires that require no air.
After filling with oil and gas, the unit started right up with the turn of the key. I researched quite a few generators in this size range and this one stood up to the best of them with all the included items on the generator. I think I made a good investment buying this generator and would recommend to others.

great gen unit

i bought a wen5500 a few years back nut had to sell it last year. i saw that the xp8500 is set up almost exactly the same si i bought this unit. more watts,bigger engine/gas tank. The unit started right up after adding oil it takes 30w 4cycle oil, not 10w30 like the specs say on line absolutley love the elect/key start.

Rugged durable generator

Ordering was a bit of a hassle due to a computer problem on Generator Factory Outlets part. I placed 1 phone call and the problem was rectified quickly. Generator was delivered in 3 days. I read the instructions and the generator started on 1st try. Overall I am happy with the generator and my purchase.

Great Machine for the price!

Came in packed correctly, all parts were there, the only issue i had was looking for the batterys ground cable... it was very well hidden and the written instructions did not mention much about the battery and nothing on where to find the ground cable...

started up first time and run quietly, happy and surprised!

I love my generator

After the hurricane that knocked us out for six days I decided to purchase a generator. I ordered the 8500 watt Duromax. It arrived quickly and safely.
Last week Mother Nature dumbed 15 inches of snow on us. It knocked out my power for 8 days. I was so happy with my generator!!! It started easily and kept running efficently for days. I had heat, hot water, and even T.V. and lights!!!
Thank you so much.
I've had absolutely no problems and worth every penny!!

XP8500E best generator for the money

11-03-2011 My power went out for 5 days. I used cords for the first 2 until my electrician installed a transfer box. This 8500E not only handled the load on a full seven gallons it ran for 12 hours on that tank. We kept listening for the unit to run out but it just kept running. My electrician and several neighbors are now ordering one before winter does start. We live by a State Park in the woods. We loose our electric when mother nature blows a fart. So losing it during the winter happens a lot! I am prepared this year thanks to DuroMax!!!
Don't hesitate order one now before it happens to you again. The great prices, free shipping and no sales tax should be enough to convince you, but their Customer Service is extremely courteous and knowledgeable.
