Answer

The generator will be provided with everything it needs for operation on gasoline and propane, other than the oil and fuel; however, the electrical hook ups can vary depending on how your planning on connecting to the item, and what items you'd like to run. We'd recommend speaking with an electrician for assistance with this based on your specific needs for the electrical cords needed. For further questions please feel free to contact us at 844-DUROMAX.

Do you offer a larger Gas tank to fit this Generator

No, we currently only offer the original gas tank size originally provided with the generator at the moment. We apologize for the inconvenience. For further questions please feel free to contact us at 844-DUROMAX.

Answers

The XP13000HX will be set up on a floating neutral system. Please note that the wiring diagram will show a bond between neutral and ground, but the generator head itself is on rubber motor mounts, so it's not connected to the frame and still considered a floating neutral. For further questions please feel free to contact us at 844-DUROMAX.

Asked by Happy March 12, 2021

Asked by Fredo March 12, 2021

No, we don't have any official natural gas conversion kits and we don't recommend any natural gas conversion to avoid damaging the generator. We apologize for the inconvenience. For further questions please feel free to contact us at 844-DUROMAX.

On a 100 lb tank how long will this generator run

Asked by Ponch March 2, 2021

Answers

It says approx 8 hours on a 20 lb. So I bout to 40 lb. for approx 32 hours. There for your 100 lb. should run approx. 40 hours.

This is one powerful and well made generator. I've spent a lot of time researching the best option for our home and decided on this unit. It easily powered our entire home. It is easy to use and I love the automated electric start and shutdown. I decided to go with a manual generator interlock kit on the main panel since my goal was to power the entire house, not just a few loads. I like the fact that it runs on gasoline as well as LP which I will use as a backup fuel source. It is surprisingly quiet which is also very impressive.

My only real complaint was in shipping, as the first one was over delayed because it was lost during shipping and they had to ship a second. Have not used it at any length is why I gave it only 3 stars. It was easy to assemble except for its weight which made it difficult to maneuver but came with very basic tools to fully assemble (put on two wheels, two feet and the two handles . The instructions were easily readable and came with many illustration for use and operation. I was surprised that it came with LP gas regulator, a sufficient length of hose with connectors for a typical setup running off LP gas but you have to provide your own LP tank of your size choice. I borrowed the 20 lb tank from my LP grill for initial test run and break in. As a run time estimate, they claim it will run for 8 hrs from a 40lb LP tank at 50% power load (reference note a fully filled 40lb tank weights in at around 73lbs). The only thing I wanted for LP operation was a tank % fill gauge so that was an extra feature and separate extra cost. Adding oil, connecting battery, connecting LP gas connections and double checking everything following the quick start directions, it basically started right up!

I have purchased the generator to have if power goes out . It was easy to set up and it runs my whole house and air i used the propane which I like .so glad to have it
by Diane
Great generator, terrible customer service
For the price, the generator is excellent. Well built and powerful. I had a couple questions, though. The box has a big splash on it that says “getting your generator running is our top priority! Call us toll free” so I did. Stayed on hold for an hour, left a message, called back, and left another message. That was five days ago. Still nothing. I’ve since solved the issues, but the company needs to pull it together.

Brand new ran it once for 2 hours worked ok but was not running steady. After that it would not stay running. Called support they said was probably the carb and they would send me a new one BUT I HAD TO INSTALL IT!! They also said it was 3 months out. I returned it and bought another generator. They seemed to know the carbs were a problem right away when I called. I don’t think this is a good product and would not trust it as a backup generator.
