Only as Strong as Its Core.
The DuroStar DS10000E is the first unit to feature an 18 Horsepower, OHV Air Cooled Engine. Look around and you will not find another unit with this large of an engine. This powerplant produces the 10,000 watts of peak power that feeds the fully functional power panel. A newly added feature is the Idle Control (referred to as Auto Throttle) which enable the motor to maintain RPM's under varying loads. This help maximizes fuel efficiency while minimizing the noise output.

Great generator. Worth every penny and more.

I bought this generator just after Sandy came thru and i had my electricals upgraded and wired for this generator. However i had not had much chance to use it extensively other than just letting it run and running a few tools off of it til 2 nites ago when the power went out for about 6 hrs. this generator ran without a hiccup the whole time, no trouble whatsoever!! It ran everything in the house and wanted more. It has ran the house before but just for about an hour or so just to give it something to do and to exercise it. I very highly recommend this unit to anybody who is thinking about it.

Fortunately, I have not had to use it.

Only reason for not giving it five stars is that I have not had to use it. We've been fortunate here in Louisiana for past few years and hurricanes been going up the East coast. I have tested it once. It ran my central air, fridge, freezer and lights, which is all I wanted. One major appliance at a time was the plan. Now I'm selling it. Buying the DuroMax which is same as DuroStar. But I'm getting the dual fuel model(gas propane). Hope I don't have to use this one either.

Nice product!

Put it together and noticed there was no ground wire for the battery so I had to make one. Everything otherwise seemed to be OK. I filled it with oil and some gas and it fired right up after choking a bit and then I hooked it up to run the whole place and it worked very well. I only run it for a couple of hours to start breaking it in. It ran the well, pit heaters under cattle waterers, furnace, one space heater, fridge, and numerous lights at the same time. I did push the envelope on it a bit but I won't tell on myself there. Pleased with purchase so far and think it will serve its purpose in emergencies and be handy for portable power also.

Decent power generator, started right up

I ordered this item recently from generator factory outlet. First off let me say these folks did an awesome job of shipping the item to me. It came loaded on a palette with metal straps holding the box down firmly. There was not a single scratch on the generator. It started up perfectly and quickly. We will see how durable it is as time goes by and I put it to use but it certainly looks sufficiently sturdy to do the job. It isn't light either but that is good sign. I was concerned because the unit is made in China but the fact of the matter is most things are made there today. Items made in the USA are prohibitively expensive and besides the internal combustion engine is a technology that has been around for over 100 years now.

Power outage, No Problem

My DS10000E arrived right on schedule! Nothing damaged or missing. Great instructions. I got it tied in to my house and did a trial run today. I was able to run lights and refrig/freezer with watts left over. I kicked on the electric dryer to see how it would handle it too. It bumped my total watts up to 6000. I'm confident that I could if necessary run lights and a selected major appliance and be well within the DuroStar's continual rating load of 7500 watts.
