Be prepared for the big storm or any power outage with the flexibility of the DuroMax XP10000EH 10,000 Watt Hybrid Dual Fuel Generator. Adding the capability of being able to operate on Gasoline or Liquid Propane, you will be able to provide safe, reliable power when you need it while increasing your generator's run time.

DuroMax Generators are perfect for any application where portable power is needed; whether it's because of a natural disaster or needed for camping in the woods, DuroMax will deliver.

Powering this unit is a 18 Horsepower, DuroMax Over Head Valve Engine. This feeds the fully loaded power panel with a peak 10,000 watts and 8,000 constant watts of power. Also contained on the power panel is the RV Switch, Idle Control, Keyed Electric Start, Engine Shutoff Switch, Volt Meter, and Circuit Breakers. These units are EPA approved for safe use in U.S. National Parks thanks to the quiet exhaust with spark arrestor. The sound level of these generators are 72 dBA while running a load and drops down to 45 dBA while idle control is engaged with no load for an even quieter operation. DuroMax Generators are designed to help you stay safe and secure during any type of power outages; expected or unexpected.

REALLY wish a tri fuel or Nat Gas/Gasoline model would go on sale like this. Still, very nice deal

Great deal. These dual fuel generators are the way to go if you're just keeping one for emergencies. Using propane instead of gasoline will cut down your maintenance down to almost nill. Once you use gasoline in it, there's a lot of issues keeping it clean and keeping the fuel viable. Not so much with propane. I heard, and I'm not sure it's true, but propane also makes it run longer but the trade off is like 10% less electrical output.

Thank you for posting! I've been researching generators for the past few days pretty furiously since we were without power for 4 days after a storm a few weeks back. I was almost set on the Generac that Costco has on sale for $800 with similar specs until I saw this one. The extra features pushed this to the front and I went ahead and bought it. I hope it lives up to it's specs, especially the auto throttle!

Thanks!

Last May they had this for $649 free shipping no tax, I think it was the same seller. Awesome generator, but I only have ~20 hours on it. No problems, just not enough time to really say it's a great test.

However, note it does come FedEx Freight on a pallet, so if you live in a small neighborhood or don't have a driveway you may have some difficulty with FedEx being able to deliver. They couldn't make it in my driveway and the driver through it on a pallet jack and pulled it up into my garage for me.

I bought this last year for $649 and have it on my watch list on eBay, it sits at $699 for weeks at a time then jumps back to $1200 then back to $699 and so on....Nothing new. Anyway, my experience with purchase was the first one showed up completely destroyed, looked like it was dropped 50'. They sent a replacement without issue, only pain was I had to be home for original delivery, pickup of broken Genny, and second delivery. So that was a pain, as your on their schedule (tractor trailer delivers). O, and I'm a huge procrastinator, I still have not fired it up since purchase lol. Still using my 5500watt for power loss as I read it will not work with 20lb propane tanks and I have still not got off my ass to grab a 100lb tank and pipe it in....

I got the model below this one (duromax xp 4850), I used it for about 16 hours with conventional 10/30 oil then put in synthetic 10/30 oil and installed hour meter now have 12 hours on it and the last 7 or so attempts to start it (cold start) it might start or not, If it doesn't start at once it just will not start no matter how long I try ! so I give up and start my other gas generator ( I am only using propane on this one). So the next morning I try it again, same thing !
I might have to start using gasoline with it in order to make it more reliable ! ( I would hate to do so, propane is whate I bought it for !)

I just returned the Costco Champion Dual fuel generator and purchased this one. It came in about a week ago and everything I tested with it was great. The box was in perfect condition and it started up and ran perfectly. I'm sure the THD is higher with this generator but I'm much more pleased with the duromax generator. I would say the decibels are similar but the idle down feature makes it much quieter. The customer service was better with Champion by far but I had problems the generator. It was not providing consistent power. The lights in my house were pulsating. After some trouble shooting with the generator connected at one point without any changes the lights went very very bright and I looked around and noticed that the microwave was smoking. We weren't even using the Microwave but it's broken now and another A/C adapter in the house was fried as well. I'm sure my experience with the Champion is not normal and luckily Costco returned it, with no questions asked. Just wanted to share my opinion between the two. I am so far very pleased with the Duromax. Fingers crossed that I don't have any problems. Also a few tidbits of info. This generator does not come with any Oil, so get oil. I've seen suggestions to change the oil after 3 hours of operation to help get the shavings out from engine break in. Also, There are about 4 or 5 electrical plugs included that aren't included in the description so that's a nice bonus. There's a round 30 amp and I think a round 20 amp. Also, there's a 50 amp that fits the 50 amp plug and a 110 standard plug. Everything looks to be high quality. The manual is hit and miss. The parts are different than the part number sometimes. For instance a few places show that the engine is 18hp, but then the manual states 16 hp in a few spots. I checked the engine part number on the generator when I received it and it is indeed a 18HP engine and the part number in the Manual that corresponds to the 16hp engine is wrong. Maybe a little caution when ordering parts. Overall I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Sorry for the long post.

Where did you read that this will not work with 20 lb propane tanks? On the front cover of the owner's manual, it's hooked up to what looks like a standard 20 lb tank:

What, you don't recognize forced perspective when you see it? That propane tank in the picture is in the background. It's actually the size of a dumpster. If I recall correctly, I think that's the 2000 lb tank, which is good for a solid 20 hour of run time.

Still cheaper than gas.

Here's my other question:

All the Champion dual-fuel generators (like the one on sale at Costco that's up to 29 thumbs up now) all claim that the power output on propane is lower. The Champion on sale is 9000 peak/7000 running on gas, but 8100 peak/6300 running on propane.

Meanwhile, these Duromax generators just give you one number for peak and running. Nothing in the owner's manual says that propane gives you less power. Is that a Duromax thing or is Duromax not mentioning that all generators produce less power on propane than gasoline?

I'm curious if anyone has experience with this, because propane is probably the main reason why most of us are interested in this particular generator.

From all the discussion on this Genny when I originally bought it, people stated the 20lb tanks will just freeze up. I have run into that issue on my Genarac 5500, but only once. The dam tank had a half inch of solid ice completely covering it.
