Key Features of the XP8500E generator
The XP8500E comes with a plethora of features that make it one of the most well rounded generators available. From the electric start to the convenient power panel, this DuroMax gas powered generator is sure to please.
The electric start feature allows you to turn the generator on with the push of a button, taking away the need to pull start, and giving you full power in only one step. Of course, it does include a traditional recoil pull start, just in case.
The wheel kit includes solid metal wheels with rubber tires and a handle, making it very easy to take out or move around job sites, even on rugged terrain. Another factor in the DuroMax XP8500E's rugged design is due in part to its steel frame, which fully encloses the generator to provide ample protection.
Another feature of the DuroMax XP8500E is a low oil shutoff sensor that turns the generator off when the oil gets low to prevent causing any damage. You can see if it's low on oil by checking if the low oil light is illuminated on the power panel.
The power panel includes all of the generator's essential functions in one place. This also includes a charging light to confirm that the included starting battery is getting charged. Another feature of the control panel is a key start. Unlike other generators, the DuroMax XP8500E uses a metal type key switch so you can prevent unwanted users from starting and operating your generator.
The DuroMax XP8500E features an idle control function that allows you to turn the engine speed down while a load is not applied. This keeps the generator ready and running but provides optimal fuel efficiency until you start drawing more power.
The DuroMax XP8500E is capable of 8,500 peak watts and 7,000 running watts. Power is delivered through four NEMA 5-20 120V 20A GFCI protected outlets. Or, you can power larger devices and appliances such as a whole home or a camper through the NEMA L14-30 twist lock outlet, which is capable of 240V at 30A.
You can even charge 12V batteries with the onboard 12V DC studs. In addition, a set of DC charging cables are included with the generators that allow you to connect a battery straight to the generator for charging external batteries.
All that power comes requires fuel to generate, and a 7.9 gallon fuel tank ensures extended run time. The large fuel tank can provide up to 10 hours of runtime on a single tank. DuroMax's MX2 switch gives you the ultimate control over your power by enabling you to select between doubled 120V power or a mix of 120V and 240V output.
An onboard breaker protects the generator and your devices from short circuits and overloads. Each GFCI outlet is also individually protected with 20A breakers as well. In addition, the generator features a built in surge arrestor to prevent damage to sensitive electronics and appliances. An automatic voltage regulator also controls the power output to ensure a steady flow of power which also helps prevent surges and spikes that could damage devices.
All DuroMax portable generators carry a three year warranty to ensure their products are free from defects. However, the DuroMax XP8500E's rugged metal construction and steel sleeved cylinder will provide long-term reliability and satisfaction.
