Asked by Raymond October 13, 2020

Answers

If you were wanting to use an automatic transfer switch it needs to be rated for your size of service that is feeding your home,100 amp ,200 , It also depends on the manufacture of the brand of switch that you want to use If your house has a 150 amp service you will most likely have to go up to a 200 amp switch, You may not be able to find a automatic transfer switch rated in specifically for 150 amp

According to the manufacturer, it is not designed to be converted to natural gas and doing so may cause damage to the unit.

Sue, the motor blew up on mine the 5th time I used it. Home Depot laid me under extended warranty. Look under specifications and it will give you weight..

is this gen a bonded nutral or nutral

Asked by bobby October 8, 2020
3
Answers

it has a floating neutral bonded ground and from my best understanding is you only really need a bonded neutral when running devices directly from the generator thru cords and grounding the generator thru ground rod ( power tools lights etc ) but you should run a floating neutral if hooking directly to the house via interlock or transfer switch

The electrician already installed the Reliance 30amp 6 circuit manual transfer kit and exterior inlet. All I was supposed to do was make sure the new 4850 Duromax generator worked before he returned to connect it to the MTS and test everything. But the gen wouldn’t start! Apparently, after I connected the propane tank, I was supposed to slide the choke to a mid point before hitting the starter. Once it started, then you slide the choke wide open to smooth it out. This was not in manual. But the manual did warn not to toggle back and forth between 120v & 240V while the Gen breaker is switched on/up or down else... Anyhoo, I hope this works when I need it, and I hope never to need it. FYI, it’s still noisy at 69-70db without load. Also, some reviews noted that the wheels flatten over extended period of time so don’t forget to roll em around when you give it a monthly crank. I don’t wan’t to buy a battery tender. If you watch the Duromax videos, they differ slightly from the manual re maintenance & storage. Finally, it’s almost a 130lb. While easy to roll around, just be reasonable with your expectation as to its condition upon arrival. It’s not HD’s fault.

I received this product previously used. Did not work. Apparently this time ships directly from Duromax when you purchase it online. I was sent a used "fried" product when I purchased a new product. The features that this should have are pretty good, but when you can't use it and never was able to use it; very expensive loss.

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

Pieces broke off some parts felt that they were poorly made, I did my research and thought I was buying a decent unit especially for this price. Even one of the handles to lift and move the machine was not welded properly together and broke off..i am not happy with this unit.. Also that choke feels very loose and flimpsy

easy to set up an easy to run
This Generator could not be easier to set up, after assembly and connecting the battery and propane it is a one button push to start, choke is automatic , I have read many reviews about people saying they could not find the battery cable or the battery is not connected this is because it cannot be shipped with the cable connected to the battery. The negative battery cable is connected at the end of the generator coil at the top you’ll have to remove the four screws to take the little side cover off to get to the battery and battery retaining plate. The battery on my generator was sufficiently charged to start the generator and just a matter of seconds after pushing the button The generator starts right up. Don’t be surprised about the weight of this generator it is a 13 KW rated generator it is not a lightweight. The noise is moderate compared to other generators of similar size you can actually carry on a conversation standing next to it but it is still loud

Box came in slightly damaged. One packing bolt missing, found in bottom of carton. No coiled housing around exposed wires as per photo. After speaking my with Durumax C S, they said they were going to ship a cover. That was 3 weeks ago, none yet. Started right up with propane. So far satisfied.

While the advertising implies that this generator is made in the USA, the engine is not. The unit was delivered in reasonably good shape, but one of the listed shipping braces was missing and the negative battery cable was not connected. Given how short the negative battery cable is, installing it properly was not easy. Manual does not mention the choke, except in the trouble shooting area, which caused a problem in starting the unit manually (because one of the battery cables wasn't connected). I have chosen to operate the unit with propane and given it wasn't mentioned in the start up propane procedure, I assumed it wasn't necessary. It is. Assembly was reasonably easy and once the battery cable was installed, electric start works great. Given it's size and weight, I think it is a an excellent alternative to a whole house generator at substantially less cost.

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.
