Have you been looking for a generator but you’re not sure which one to buy? Perhaps you’ve already had a generator but you weren’t satisfied with it? Perhaps you weren’t able to power all of your household appliances adequately? Maybe you had an issue with the fuel supply? Or are you looking for something with a bigger tank? If this sounds like you, you might want to join me in taking a look at DuroMax’s XP10000EH Generator.

What do I need to know about the XP10000EH?

With a running output of 8,000 watts and a maximum of 10,000 watts, this DuroMax generator packs a punch. It’s the most powerful of all the generators featured at http://www.home-improvement.guru/best-portable-generators. Perhaps most interestingly, it can be run on both gasoline and propane. It has a steel fuel tank with a capacity of 8.3 gallons and weighs 265 pounds.

Is it suitable for me?

As you can see, the DuroMax is a bit of a beast, so if you’re looking for a lot of power, you’re looking in the right direction. The dual fuel supply offers the fuel economy of propane, which costs much less than gasoline, lasts longer and can be stored more safely, with the convenience of gasoline. Propane shouldn’t be used at lower temperatures (around 20 degrees Fahrenheit) and this is where gasoline can take over.

What I like about this DuroMax generator

Whether you need to power heavy electrical loads or multiple smaller ones (it has six outlets), this generator will be able to handle it. It’s simple enough to use and all the controls are on one central panel. What I like most, however, is the dual fuel option. If you can get your hands on propane, you can use this as your main fuel source as it’s much safer to store than gasoline, costs much less and lasts much longer. The problem with propane-only generators is that they can’t operate at low temperatures. That’s where your gas comes in as a kind of backup. So you’ve basically got all of the benefits of a propane generator with none of the drawbacks!

What I don’t like about it

This generator calls itself portable, and it is – within limits! At 260 pounds it’s not something that you are just going to carry up the mountainside with you. It has a wheelbarrow design which makes it as easy as possible for you to lug the thing around for short distances, but that’s about as portable as it gets, really.

I’ve also heard people have had issues finding replacement parts for broken valves etc. so this is something you might want to bear in mind.

What’s the verdict?

If you’re looking for power over mobility, the DuroMax is something you should be considering. And doubly so if you want to add economy to that. It’s relatively simple to switch fuels and for these reasons I give this generator the thumbs up. Users on Amazon currently give it 4.2 stars out of a possible 5, indicating that most customers are happy with their purchase.
