PRICE

Power, durability and reliability give you peace of mind, so does the price!

“I shopped prior to making this purchase and any other brand, for comparable features was from several hundred dollars more to over double the money. So far I’m not the least bit disappointed.”

QUIET

Quality construction four fully isolated motor mounts and ultra quiet motor make this generator as quiet as possible.

“At night, where minimal power is used, it quiets down more than any of my neighbor’s units, which are all contractor-quality units, with raucous “industrial” motors. Having it just outside my bedroom area, I could barely hear it over the air of the forced-air heater when it ran. It ran quieter than my neighbor’s unit, 4 houses away- and that had a 16 HP Briggs & Stratton motor. It has the same size motor, but at least 1/2 (or less) the noise.”

RELIABLE

The single most important factor in choosing a generator is reliability. You can have the most expensive generator that pumps out the most power but if it doesn’t start in an emergency you basically have a very heavy paperweight.

“The unit is reliable and starts right off. I have gone several months without touching the unit and it starts in seconds with no fuss. I have loaded it up and it just goes no questions….”

POWER!

It puts out ten thousand watts? Really? That is just huge power!

“The unit was put on full load….a/c unit, well pump, hot water heater, refrigerator and numerous outlets….the unit just purred…… I was surprised along with the installer that the generator accommodated so many circuits at one time. I can only hope it never has to be used in a real life situation but it worked just “great” in a test. That’s it.”

DuroMax XP 10000 GENERATOR IS EASY TO USE

Hey, this a big, heavy beast of a unit; maybe that is why the DuroMax people made it so easy to assemble, start and use. Built it in place and leave it there!

“Easy assembly of the wheels, stationary supports, handles and battery connection. The unit is dry so you must add 1.1 quarts of oil and some gasoline. I very slowly extended the pull start cord to get some oil on the internals and the engine started in the middle of the second pull!”
