The DuroMax HX series of generators

DuroMax's HX generators are a series of powerful portable generators that can run on a fuel choice of gasoline or propane, thanks to the innovative DuroMax dual fuel system. The "H" in the DuroMax HX series stands for "hybrid fuel capability," while the X stands for the CO Alert system. Like other DuroMax generators, the DuroMax HX generators have robust and durable OHV engines.

The DuroMax HX generators – including the DuroMax XP12000HX generator – all feature the CO Alert carbon monoxide detection system. This system automatically detects the levels of carbon monoxide in the generator's environment. Should this level become unsafe, the generator automatically shuts down. This makes these generators especially ideal for Home Power Backup, where the generator may be used in a smaller space than on a job site.

The DuroMax series further features a newly designed, fully loaded power panel with a digital multimeter, front-facing fuel interface, and, in the case of the 10,000-watt and above models, a push button start. The smaller generators in this series feature a rocker start mechanism. There are also various sizes in the DuroMax HX series, from 4,850 watts to 13,000 watts.

The durable and long-lasting parts of the HX series also make the DuroMax HX Series generators a significant investment. The series also contains the longest-lasting all copper windings designed to ensure that the DuroMax HX generators are the longest-lasting portable generators on the market.
