DuroMax 10,000W 16.0 Hp Gas Generator w/ Elect Start, Wheel Kit
Let's face the facts...all you have to do is listen to the news today to recognize that natural disasters and
infrastructure failures have become part of our everyday life. No one wants to be at the mercy of depending on
public utilities in times of crisis. Why place your family at risk when you can have the protection and
security of a DuroMax generator? The XP10000E is the powerhouse you can depend on for emergencies, insuring
your essential appliances are running smoothly, reliably and without interruption. It also provides the
added power to run demanding high amperage tools and appliances that other generators in its class
The DuroMax XP10000E is not only the essential generator to safeguard your family, but can provide you power
when needed for work and play as well. This rugged workhorse is ideal for the jobsite where powering saws,
drills, and other equipment is critical.
The XP10000E features a rugged frame constructed of heavy duty steel with four fully isolated vibration
dampening motor mounts for a surprisingly smooth and quiet operation. The heart of this power plant is
the dependable 16 HP DuroMax overhead valve engine. It's designed to be extremely easy for anyone to
start, just a turn of the key or a quick pull of the EZ-start recoil gets it going. With its 8.3 gallon
fuel capacity this environmentally minded EPA and CARB approved unit will run up to a full 10 hours
on a single tank of gas. This time may vary depending on the load you're running. The unique exhaust
design coupled with the frame dampening allows it to run at a comfortable 72 decibels. Another added
feature is its low oil protection system. It alerts you first with a light on the front panel telling
you that the oil is low, next it will automatically shut the generator off to protect it from any
damage and substantially prolonging its life. The XP10000E series alternators use quality all copper
windings, an advanced automatic voltage regulator (AVR) system, coupled with a rock solid brush design.
This tried and true combination ensures maximum steady power output and years of trouble free service.

I was a bit skeptical at first because of the price but with electric start and a decent out but and noise rating I thought I have to try this before I spend three times as much for a comprable honda product.
First of this unit is heavy...and I mean really heavy...without wheels you need two big guys and with wheels its movable but with brute force and momentum unless your on flat paved ground....Which for me is not always the case. That said it is comprable in weight to others in its power rating so if you in this 10,000 catagory your in for the 300# fueled monster be it this machine or another.
Second its quiet but not whisper quite, so lets not confuse quite for a generator with church quite...you can talk in a loud voice and be heard and in the house you can watch tv with it outside, but not outside your window.
The unit is reliable and starts right off. I have gone several months without touching the unit and it starts in seconds with no fuss. I have loaded it up and it just goes no questions....
The only thing missing is a lower idle for light loads to save fuel...compared to a honda unit this thing is about 20% less efficient on fuel...I counld run 10 hours on my honda and on this unit I run 8 hrs ont he same 7 gallons of fuel.
a great unit at a killer price....

I ordered this generator after a major power outage in my area. It arrived very quickly and in excellent condition. I realize this is a product built in China and the reputation for China is a little in question but this generator is awesome. Started right up, runs nearly my whole house and so far is as dependable as anything I've purchased. I shopped prior to making this purchase and any other brand, for comparable features was from several hundred dollars more to over double the money. So far I'm not the least bit disappointed. And the shipper was fast and very helpful. All in all a great purchasing experience.

Unit (and company) performed as advertised. Great value and effortless purchase.
Common wisdom states that being prepared for a hurricane - by having a generator - keeps the storms away. Sure hope it works

no problems so far
I bought the 10000w pk generator to run a welder, plasma cutter and air compressor, at seperate times of course. I havent had any problems with it although I do only run it when I need to and not all the time. Over all I think it was a great investment.

Received Item as promised, great generator, easy to assemble, at 72 I had it ready to rock and roll in about 2 hour. Packaging was above average and with tailgate delivery I never had to touch the unit until after the driver left. Filled with oil and gas, turn on the gas valve and away it went. I back fed my main panel, hit the transfer switch and powered my whole house
with hardly any surge in the generator. Perfect for the backup I wanted. Used 50a 4 wire plug, 4/c #8 cord.

excellent so far
I was apprehensive about buying this generator because they don't have a network of service centers... they tell you to take it to any small engine shop near you and contact them about charges under warranty. I called their cust svc and talked with them about the need for third party verification regarding parts needed and they assured me none was required.. I could fix it myself if I wanted.. just call them and tell them what I needed and they'd send it out. That seemed fair enough. It took a little over a week to get mine and it was delivered by USF Holland freight and arrived in pristine condition.. hats off to Holland. I got the liftgate delivery and he backed that big semi right up to my garage door...took his hand truck and set the small skid it was banded to in the center of my garage.. he required no help.. I never touched it until he was gone. These come packed in a cardboard carton and the packaging is well engineered.. thick foam all sides.. top and bottom.. all loose parts.. wheel kit.. etc.. in their own little nook in the foam. It is very heavy but you can get it assembled and off the skid working alone.. I did and I'm 62 yrs old. I pulled the front until it overhung the skid about 10 and assembled the wheel kit then pivoted one side of the rear until it overhung and assembled that strut then blocked the rear strut up with a 4x4 and pulled the skid out of the way and assembled the other strut. I filled it with good synthetic blend oil and put about a gallon of gas in it. I turned the fuel valve on.. it's located a few inches to the right of the choke handle. I pulled the choke handle all the way out and tried to start it with the key... the battery was totally dead. I pulled it out and put it on the charger and stuck the battery outa my lawn tractor in it and tried to start it. It was running almost before I could let go of the key. These Duromax units all have an idle control on them so there's no speed adjustments of any kind possible and none needed. It idles very fast.. all generators do.. they have to to produce current. It ran smooth with no fluctuating noticeable in engine speed. Next I took my voltmeter and checked the output on all the current-carrying poles on all the receptacles. I got a steady 119 volts everywhere. With a target of 120 I considered this to be excellent.. my house current won't hold that. The reason I bought this big unit in the first place was I had hoped it would start and run my big window air conditioner... it is huge.. 30k btu's. I plugged the extension cord I had bought into the L14-30 240v receptacle on the generator and ran it inside the house and plugged up the conversion cord I'd made going to the 6-30 plug on the air conditioner and turned it on. It fired right up with no bogging down and I never noticed the engine on the genny pick up at all. I let it run about a half hour... let the compressor on the air conditioner cycle off and on many times and watched the voltmeter on the genny. It never moved.. engine really never picked up speed either so this generator runs that big air conditioner without any strain on it at all.. I was VERY relieved. The other things I plan to run during an outage won't even approach the surge requirements of that big air conditioner so that issue was put to rest. It turned out that the battery in mine was no good.. wouldn't hold a charge even a half hour. I called MaxTool and told them and true to their word there was no hassle.. they sent me a brand new battery and shipped it FexEx at no charge. I wondered if maybe I had been sent a generator that had been sitting in inventory a year or so but no.. the data tag on it shows a MFG date of May 2007.. I bought it in late August so I got a brand new one.. just had a bad battery. I tried the pull start several times and it always starts on one pull. I go out about once every two weeks and start it and let it run awhile to get oil thru it good.. keep a maintenance trickle charger on it all the time. I can't speak to what it will do over time but outa the box it's everything it was promised to be.. I love it so far. I almost bought a Coleman but those units got horrible reviews.. rampant with quality issues.. leaking gas all over.. horrible vibration issues.. etc.. also they have no idle control and most no electric start and are overpriced terribly. I'm glad I bought this Duromax... couldn't be happier at this point.. good luck to you.

Nice backup power generator
I had one small issue with the initial use of this product. The engine did not run at a constant rate. Dealing with the vendor was a pleasant experience. After a small tweak to the carburetor, the engine's been running great. We get plenty of power outages in our area. This generator has already come in handy on a couple of occasions. Good luck with your purchases.
