What is the THD in operation?

Is it less than 5%? Also what are the windings and generator head composed of? e.g., copper vs aluminum?

The Total Harmonic Distortion is 10% under load and 12% with NO load. The generator head is composed of copper as well as the windings.

Customer Reviews

8,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Wheel Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sandy Was No Match For This Generator! Purchased the 8500E the summer after Irene. Tested it montly over the summer and really put it to the test during Super Storm Sandy. The 8500E ran continually (minus downtime for 2 oil changes) for eight days. This generator never missed a beat. I hooked it up to similarly rated transfer switch. It easily powered refrigerator/ freezer, garage freezer, sump pump, multiple lights, microwave, heater, solor hot water unit, Verizon Fios and multiple TV's. Fuel economy was also better than expected, we never exceeded more than a 60% load and averaged approximately 12 - 13 hours/ tank. I would definitely recommend this generator to anyone needing a backup power solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy only if you are very patient The product we received was not as advertised. The tank that has the gas guage as pictured and advertised is not on it. Even though we have had it for over two weeks now we can't use it as we are waiting for the "correct" tank to be shipped to us. AND, we have the pleasure of removing the tank that is now on it and putting on the new one. (After all there are only four screws.) When we contacted the manufacturer they admitted they knew the wrong tank was on it and that they had "already planned to mail us the right one." When we questioned why we weren't notified there was no good answer. Sure hope it works when we get all the right parts. Too early to tell. If you have time for foolishness go ahead and order it. If not, find something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very poor instructions from manufacturer. Could not start generator. Spoke with tech support who had me try different things to get it started to no avail. Returned generator to Home Depot and ordered new again. This one started as it should. No Instructions from DuroMax on running unit for the first time and for how long and what needs to be done afterwards like changing oil.
