High DuroMax Power
The DuroMax XP12000DX makes use of its top-of-the-line DuroMax engine to power all your home appliances and heavy-duty power tools. Capable of sustaining 9,500 watts of running power, this dual-fuel portable generator can handle multiple jobs like a champ.
As a standard in DuroMax generators, 100% copper windings are used instead of aluminum, as it is a superior heat conductor that provides better heat dissipation. While aluminum quickly overheats, copper scatters heat around which prevents the windings from damaging over time, guaranteeing years of use.
Dual Fuel Technology
Providing you with the convenience of choice, the 12,000-watt portable generator benefits from DuroMax Dual Fuel functionality which allows it to run on both gasoline and propane. Use the fuel input switch next to the power panel to choose which source to use as fuel.
At 25% load, the DuroMax XP12000DX can reach 19 hours of continuous use when using gasoline, and 14 hours when using propane.
To save on fuel and cost, the idle control feature automatically lowers engine speeds when it detects it’s not being used, preventing the engine from using more fuel than necessary.
Exclusive to DuroMax DX Series generators, the brand-new CO Alert Shutoff feature automatically detects when carbon monoxide levels are unhealthy and proceeds to immediately shut the engine down and preventing it from rebooting for the next 5 minutes.
The dangers of carbon monoxide can range from dizziness and feeling unwell to death in the worst cases. The DuroMax XP12000DX brings peace of mind and a worry-free experience so you can safely work or worry about other things during a power outage.
Adapted for Outdoor Use
DuroMax 12,000-watt generators conforms to strict eco-conscious guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board, meaning it features controlled toxic emissions which makes it perfectly healthy to use in public settings.
Added to the fact that it is both EPA and CARB-approved, the unit also features a built-in spark arrestor preventing any fire hazards, making it suited for forested areas.
Years of Durability
Protecting your investment is a full metal construction reinforced with heavy-duty frames to provide resistance against harsh weather conditions and years of accumulated damage. DuroMax models are known for their durability.
While the rigid build protects the unit, solid-fill tires provide an easier time moving around tough terrain. In addition, foldable handles solve the issue of moving the 240lbs unit which would otherwise be incredibly hard to do.
Fully Loaded Power Panel
Geared for maximum compatibility, the DuroMax XP12000 DX features multiple outlets to accommodate all your needs, including a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, making it transfer switch ready, meaning it can be plugged into your home breaker box to power everything during a power outage.
In addition to a voltmeter displaying info about current use, a low oil indicator will light up when oil levels are critical. Also on the fully featured power panel, a fuel gauge lets you check oil fuel levels at a moment’s notice.
For further safety measures, a circuit breaker can be used to immediately switch the engine off for overload protection, while the low oil shutoff feature automatically shuts it down when oil levels are low.
Benefits of Using Propane
Only yielding about 5% less power than gasoline, propane shows a number of advantages that can be game-changing depending on your living conditions. These can be summarized as follows:
