awesome
I picked this well before the start of hurricane season 2020 and got it set up with a 50a inlet box with breaker interlock also grabbed a 100lb propane tank and have it strapped to a hand truck for ez set up when time comes, so living in Florida the last season has seen record breaking hurricanes all over the south ea and some areas hit multiple times i still felt ready but as time went on our area got nothing ,,, nothing ,,, so with that i buried the generator in the garage just making room ,,, but months later a storm blew in with a heavy cold front bringing high winds and rain and of all nights it happened on Christmas Eve while wife and daughter were on 2nd floor last minute wrapping and BAM power out so i called DUKE energy and automated response was power should be restored by 1:00am i was like no way not on my watch not with temps expected in the low 30's ,, the whole neighbor hood is out so dug out the XP1200EH rolled out the propane tank fired it up let it run ( breaker off) while i got the power cord ready and made a make shift cover for it since was raining but winds were no longer a threat ,,, hooked it up and 1 by 1 flipped all the breakers on in the main panel and with a little detail of my house is its a 2 story 3900sq ft (3200living) i have a 3ton heat pump A/C unit upstairs and a 2.5ton heat pump a/c unit down stairs a large efficient fridge in the kitchen a med size older fridge in garage a 5ft freezer as well,, so far its running my entire house my wife needed to finish cooking and prepping Christmas dinner i turned off the the 1st floor A/C as i really didn't want to push it and have nothing but wife completed all her cooking on electric stove and used microwaves etc. at this point I'm so very impressed after a few hours i called duke back and estimated restore time had been updated to 5:30 am and that Generator ran the entire time and has never had gasoline in it propane only ,,, but my house is a good size house and is very efficient with LED lighting thru out Battery back up on all cable boxes Modems and routers energy efficient appliances i also added Kickstarters to both outside A/C units which cut the start up amperage dramatically which helps on the generator load and as well as everyday use i have seen a decrease in my electric bill ,,,, overall i extremely pleased with how it handled my house from 7:30pm to 5:30am Christmas eve into Christmas morning and the 100lb propane tank is still over 3/4 full and as i told my wife it seemed like 2020 wasn't going out with out a fight

    Converted to natural gas
    I get about 5500-6000w continuous on natural gas and no need to worry about refilling. I can run the whole house and one of the following: the cental AC (3 ton); hot water heater; or the electric oven; or 2 electric burners. Im happy with that as I will switch the hot water or range to gas

      This is a lot of generator for the money. Easy set up except that the negative of battery was not grounded so I had to land a wire to the motor case. Started right up on propane. Very happy so far but have not tested under load yet.

      Review Guidelines  Focus on the product and your individual experience with it: For Shipping / Damaged / Delivery item issue, I thought this is the right spot to mention something on the above topics; According to the delivery company (ESTES) the generator was supposed to be curb side delivery. However, when delivered the delivery man set the generator inside our garage on our request. Inspection of the generator box by myself and the delivery man did not identify any damage.  What features stand out most? The capability of running the generator on duel fuel, electric/key start, and a large capacity (wattage) for running electrical loads.  What do you like or dislike about it? The unit is portable easy to move around. This unit can run all of our house hold electrical loads, any time of the year. Instead of two handles to pickup the unit, it would have been nice if the unit had front wheel in the middle with a pull-on handle so the unit could be pulled instead of picking up. Addition of engine oil and checking are some issues that needed some improvement. At my age (70 and over) it is very difficult to do these tasks.  How long have you had it? We bought this generator on November 8th, 2019; from the Home Depot in Normal Illinois.  Does it meet your expectations? So far what we have seen the Duromax XP12000EH generator meet ore expectations.

      Bought this unit to be run on propane only. I set up a 120 gallon tank, that should give me about 4 days. At first it would not start, directions say do not use the choke (or idle control) to start using propane...turns out you do need to choke it for it to start with propane. Besides that it starts and runs well. I ran it for a couple hours powering the house and had no issues. Not looking forward to the next power outage but I feel I am ready for it with this unit.

      This generator works great so far! With PGE out-we used the generator for three days straight and it performed well. Nice easy start, big tank for gas so you don't have to re-fill multiple times a day and did the job. To keep the gas moving and the battery charged, I ran it last week when we did have power. Notice how the light shows up showing that the battery is re-charging-GREAT option I think. The manual didn't give as much information as I'd like: doesn't explain the idle control enough; but I'm grateful to have this now for the winter and future PG&E outages ~ :)
