Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProTechnician Very good generator
Have had this generator for quite some time. Wanted to be sure I've had ample time to run it through the wringer before writing a review. I see lots of complaints about the battery and cables being hard to hook up. I had no problem at all.
Had the whole thing put together in less than 15 minutes. Battery came charged. Started right up. Used it a lot to power my house when the power was out. I can't bog it down. I can run everything I want. Went about 12-14 hours on a tank of fuel. I run non-ethanol premium 93 octane gasoline in it.
Very good generator, and not just for the money. I'd put this up against any other brand.

There is a 90 day return policy. I had an electrician set me up to use this generator to run some household appliances the generator etc. We tested the generator and it appeared to work ok. I then tested it once a month for the next three months. In the third month it was not putting out the required voltage. My electrician came by and tested the unit and confirmed the problem. Home Depot told me the 90 day return policy had passed and it was up to the vendor to assist me. I spoke with the vendor (Duromax Factory Outlet) and they would not diagnose the problem or stand by the product. They will mail out parts if I pay for the shipping and have them installed. Basically I have an $1100 piece of equipment with less than 2 hours total run time which does not function.

Do not run 87 octane gas in this generator. Run 89 or above to prevent it from large speed oscillations when you start the water pump, stove or hot water heater. I used it to power up my house for a few days after I moved and it does not like regular gasoline.
It starts quickly with the use of the choke. The battery is very difficult to access to connect positive and negative battery cables.

I bought this generator for my Carpet cleaning business. My old generator was starting to become unreliable. This is a wonderful product however, after about 3 weeks of use running it for an average of 8 hours a day it has developed an oil leak around where the oil pan mounts to the motor. It doesn't leak much maybe a tablespoon a day. The generator itself is very powerful and will run every thing I throw at it. Would purchase another 1 but this time I would order extra gaskets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeLobstermen Perfect generator for frequent power outages!!
We live on an island off the coast of Maine and suffer frequent power outages. This generator is easy to use and move around. My Husband has always started our generators but this one is one that I feel very comfortable operating too!! The fuel consumption rate is VERY good. In short, we couldn't have been more pleased!!! Highly recommend this generator!!!! AAAA+++++++

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FatSammy Full Load Run time is 4.98 hours at 1.66 gallons per hour
I have owned two of these units and currently using my 2nd unit, The first one I had, I loaned it to a friend who lived on a farm with his wife and two children. There power would go out frequently during cold winter storms. I allowed him to keep the unit at his farm and two years later when I wanted back, he wanted to keep it and he paid me for the unit and I bought another one just like it.
These are very reliable generators. Now, about the run time on a tank of fuel. At half load they will run at almost 10 hours. When running at Full Load, the Run Time is only 4.98 hours and the fuel consumption is 1.66 gallons per hour.
These DuroMax 10,000 Watt generators do a really good job of providing stable power to run anything you need temporary power for. I would recommend this unit to anybody looking to buy a good quality built generator.
I think it would be good for the buyer to have the run time at Full Load, so you don't have to find out by running out of fuel. When it's 10 degrees outside, the last thing you want to do is have to rush out in the middle of the night looking to find a gas station open where you can get fuel in the middle of the night.

Shipped right to garage via eppes.....Easy to install wheels, handles and negative battery cable... Added oil and gas... strong starter...fired right up on first try...Everything ran perfect...plugged 50amp cable to house. Generator provided power for 5000sq/ft house....all lites, tv, computers, 3 refrigerators, well pump microwave. Did not try any 240 items( dryer, heat pumps). Very happy with performance. I am ready for any power outages to run my home with a great valued generator. Would highly recommend!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kc5hig Very good value for the money, easy assembly and use.
I had been hunting for a generator that could be used with our 50 amp service camper for quite some time and I have found it! I am a teacher by day and a camp ground host all other times so we live full time in a camp ground. There is always a chance of a power outage and I no longer wanted to be dependent on anyone for our power. This generator has everything that we need. That is a 50 amp plug, 30 amp and others. it was easy to assemble. In fact we did it in the back of our truck! I had read from other reviews that the battery came dead. Ours had ample charge to start the first time. As of yet we haven't had to use it on any power outages but I have started it several times without fail. So I feel this generator is a very good buy for the money.
