DuroMax XP10000E Power
DuroMax’s “MX2 Power Boost” is just a switch to go between 240/120 volt and 120 volt only modes. That’s not any different from other 240 volt capable generator. What does make this different is its ability to provide 100% power in 120 volt mode. That works out to a total of 83.33 amps of peak power and 66.7 amps of sustained power. Switch to 240/120 volt mode, and the 240 volt outlets provide 41.67 amps of maximum power and 33.33 amps of sustained power, leaving the rest of the generator’s capacity for 120 volt power. A built-in surge protector prevents sudden swings in output from damaging connected devices.
The engine in the 10000E is an 18 HP, 440cc OHV single cylinder built by DuroMax. It’s both EPA and CARB approved, so the generator can be used across the U.S. and Canada. While the engine is modern, the rest of the unit uses dated technology. The brushed generator is cheaper than a brushless generator, but it’s also larger, less efficient and requires occasional maintenance. The auto throttle doesn’t adjust engine speed to match the current load. Instead, it keeps the engine at 3,600 RPM under load, then drops the idle speed when there is no current draw. Despite this, owners can expect the 8.3 gallon gas tank to keep the 10000E running for 10.4 hours at 50% load. That’s in line with brushless generators in this category.
This model is easy to confuse with the DuroMax XP10000EH. Both generators look identical, but the EH is dual fuel, while this model only runs on gasoline.
DuroMax says this generator makes 72 dB of noise, but there’s no distance or load tied to this measurement. If it’s like similar open frame generators, expect actual noise output to be closer to 80 dB at the standard 10 feet and 50% load test used by other manufacturers.
