Answer

The only model that will have a remote start feature on the Duromax line is the XP9000iH generator model at the moment.

Can you get 50 amps of power from this generator if you only install a 30 amp breaker and 30 amp ...

Asked by Susan June 11, 2021
2
Answers

No, the 30 amp outlet will restrict the output to 30 amps and if any load is demanded over 30 amps the breaker will flip.

Is the 30 amp cord that Home Depot suggest buying with it compatible with the 50 amp outlet on th...

Asked by Susan June 11, 2021
2
Answers

No, we'd only recommend using an adapter that's rated for 50 amps if your using the 50 amp receptacle. Please note the generator is also equipped with a 30 amp receptacle if preferred.

Did you discontinue the XP9000iH? Was on a waitlist and just notified they're no longer made.

Asked by CLM June 11, 2021
1
Answer

No, the XP9000iH is still in production, but is just on a heavy back order due to high popularity and demand. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Does this generator include a battery tender? If not what approach is recommended to keep the battery charged?

Asked by CAGuy May 30, 2021
1
Answer

No, the generator won't have a separate battery tender included, but it is capable of charging its own battery while the generator is running. If you plan to store the generator longer than 3 months without use, then we'd recommend getting a 12V trickle charger compatible with SLA batteries.

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.

4 stars due to the customer service that you read all throughout all the other reviews. When you call it's hit or miss. I called 3 days in a row during the week and the phone would just repeat the same thing over and over fast and then hang up on you. If Duromax reads these reviews, please, please fix this. The product is great, but it's important to have a phone system for customer service that works and answers properly. Now, onto the generator. I spent months research generators. My goal was to run my entire house, with 5 ton AC. I almost went with the Westinghouse WGen12000DF, but it was 1k+ more. It appears to be rated better, with an oil pressure system and oil filter, but I also read, customer service is also bad and finding parts for oil filter replacement is a mission. So I decided on the Duromax. In order to run the 5 ton AC, I also installed a "Soft Start" Easy start from Micro Air. This brought my initial AC compressor LRA from 150amps down to 48amps, allowing me to start the AC with the generator with no issues. I am able to run AC, lights and pretty much everything else. Mine arrived in good condition, assembly was fine and took around 30 min. Both propane and gas functions work good. I wasn't thrilled with the 20 hours oil change, but I read using synthetic oil, you can push to 40+ hours. So we will see. Noise is comparable to a lawn mower and unit is easy to navigate on the wheels provided. I did also purchase the extended warranty through Home Depot to avoid issues down the road. I think for this type of unit and given it will only be used for storms in FL it's important as loading a 250lb generator in your vehicle is not easy. All in all, for the price and features it seems to work good. Hope this review helps!
