    Based on our current use we would recommended this generator to everyone. It is very solid generator and meets our needs. We purchased this generator because we live in Florida and do to Hurricanes. For a low cost high powered generator that runs on propane or gas, I think you would be hard pressed to find another that has all the options, key start, and comes with the battery and all the accessories included. A standalone Generac 15KW would have been 9 thousand dollars with the auto transfer switch. You will save thousands and get the same results with this generator. This is more than enough to run my hole home, and I have 3 freezers, 1 fridge, and many other devices. Granted, my lights in my house are ALL LED now, which helps! But I was able to run three window unit also with four box fans with celling paddle fans, water heater, house water pump all at the same time.Most of the time I don’t rate or comment. BUT seeing some of these peoples who don’t have a clue what they doing writing comments here. If you never worked with four-stroke engines. Hire someone else don’t blame the generators, do to ignorance of how to ADJUST IT. Then yes, I saw you needed to hook up the negative ground wire, (all batteries on engines never comes hook up) to the battery so I did that. (Now this quote from some other people writings) #1 “the unit will start rite up but surges badly on LP. Turning off the auto throttle switch corrects this issue. There is nothing in the manual regarding this switch. Once this was done the engine runs smooth.”#2 Engine revs up then dies down. Pretty annoying. (YOUR FIX) If you adjust the idle on the carburetor up, you can fix this and the auto throttle will work for LP running. Knowing what to do is key here. And No, you will not find this in the instructions. Again, Hire someone else if you do not know what I am talking about, don’t blame the generator. It is shipped without oil, so it needs 1qt and a half of 5-w30. This is in your instructions, so, why be surprise you don’t have any oil. I do not recommend the 20gal that’s a full-sized grill propane cylinder. You can only use a little under half a tank before you will have problems with not enough Pressure to run generator. Get a sixty or eighty gallon, will work better and longer. I myself have it on a 250gal tank.Hope I have cleared up these “People miss understandings of what not to do.Dr.DRE1965

    It’s 8:00 Sunday night, 9/10/2017, and my new DuroMax XP12000EH has been running nonstop since 9:30 this morning. We had a close encounter with Irma yesterday and today here in Florida and, thanks to this generator, we haven’t missed a beat. It is powering my 4 Ton A/C(16 SEER) unit, refrigerator, various computers, any and all lights we want to use, the coffee maker and the microwave. I did cut the A/C off for about 1/2 hour to recharge the electric water heater (didn’t want to push my luck). After 7 1/2 hours, I thought I should refill the tank before a new band came through. Imagine my surprise when the 5 gallon gas can turned out to be just a little to much to put in. I can’t believe that I ran everything on less than 1 gallon an hour!!!I originally purchased this because it ran on propane and had no intention of every putting gasoline into it. But the storm came up faster than the gas company could install a couple of 120 gallon tanks. I did try it first on propane and, to my amazement, it started up on the first turn of the key. Same thing when I filled it with gas. I modified my garbage can alcove outside the garage (added a home-made insulated exhaust pipe, put in a 16 x 16 vent, and bolted an old 12 fan to the underside of a sloped hinged cover (just lifts up for access.) I started it up and it ran outside in the enclosure all day. The remote thermometer never went above 90 degrees.All in all I have absolutely no complaints. I should mention that the lights dim when the A/C kicks on but, from what I’ve been able to discern from all my internet searches, this isn’t really a problem. Given that the fuel consumption of most standby units is 2x to 3x what the DuroMax is, I plan on using this for the foreseeable future.

    We purchased this generator because after Hurricane Matthew last year we determined we did not want to go without water and air conditioning in Florida. We have had to put it into use because of Hurricane Irma, and based on our experiece so far we would say it is a great tool for your storm preparations.We have been running on the generator now for five full days and it has held up quite well. We started off on propane from a 100lb tank and that lasted from mid-day Sunday when the power went out to Tuesday afternoon when we noticed the condensation at the very bottom of the propane tank (~47 hours) That utilization is running a ~2,600sqf 5br home with 4 ton 16 seer A/C and a well and two refridgerators (we have on-demand electric water heaters that are on a separate box and are too high a load for the generator so they are not included). One note about the A/C, as noted in another review, the lights do dim when the A/C kicks on because the startup load is pretty heavy on a 4 ton A/C unit. We did not turn the breaker on with the double oven, but the stove top and microwave have been used numerous times. For the A/C, it does put a heavy load on the generator when it starts however after startup, the A/C runs quite well. We have ensured we do not use the A/C at the same time as the stove based on the load. We have the generator into the house using a Reliance Reliance Controls Corporation PBN50 50-Amp NEMA 3R CS6375 Power Inlet Box for Generators Up to 12,500 Running Watts and a 15ft cable Conntek 1450SS2-15 15-Foot Temporary Power Cord, 50-Amp 125/250-Volt, NEMA 14-50P Generator Plug to CS6364 Locking Connector directly to the power box. In the box we installed a manual interlock kit to meet code requirements Square D by Schneider Electric HOMCGK2C Homeline Cover Generator and QOM2 Frame Size Main Breaker Interlock Kit. Once we ran out of propane, we switched to gasoline and have been running on that ever since (yes, we are still out of power 5 days later). For the gasoline, the longest we have allowed the generator to run without filling is 12 hours overnight, and that was with the A/C set to 78 degrees, so it did come on during the night, and when we filled the tank in the morning, there was still over an inch of gasoline left in the tank. These times will vary based on the load upon the generator, and we realize we have been using it well above a 50% load.On the technical side, the reason this gets four stars instead of five is because of the tires. After receiving the generator, the wheels were installed and the generator stored in our garage. The wheels are made of solid plastic, and the weight of the generator made them go flat on the down side. We replaced them with pneumatic tires and that addressed the issue. Secondly, it would be very useful to have a load indicator on the generator to show overall load against the output. The generator starts quickly and easily using the electric start, however I could not get it to start with the pull rope. Also the charging indicator has come on numerous times even though the generator has been running for days, and if the battery is not charged at this point, I am unsure why it would happen. Lastly, the user manual says to change the oil every 20 hours or monthly. We changed the oil as specified, and it certainly looked as if it needed to be changed. Do NOT put this off because as with any engine, dirty oil will cause the engine to overheat and eventually cause damage.Lastly for the seller we purchased from. They did very well addressing concerns with shipping because we live way out on a dirt road and there were difficulties with the drop shipment. The seller did address the issues very quickly and ensured that we were satisfied with the sale.Based on our current use we would (and have) recommended this generator to friends. It is (so far) very solid and meets our current needs. We will provide an update to the review after our power is restored and the first real use of the generator is complete.

    It’s alright, runs nice and quiet. We wanted to couple this genset with an existing 10 kw and install automatic start/stop with a transfer switch and stuff, but it may not lend itself for the purpose. Had a hell of a time contacting the seller and wrench some answers out of them, which may or may not be correct. We’ll have to see an electrician to find out what gives.

  5. Bruce Manley
