The gasoline-powered 420 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine is the heart of the Dewalt DXGNR7000. It has a 120/240V output and a running power of 7,000W and a peak power of 8,750W. This generator can be turned on with either a traditional pull-start or a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). With a full tank, the DXGNR7000 can run for about 11 hours at 0.5 load (using about 0.68 GPH of fuel). This is because it has a 7.5-gallon fuel tank.
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplex outlets and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are on the control panel.The DXGNR7000 is ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.You can easily connect it to your breaker box to power your home when the power goes out.
The DXGNR7000’s control panel has a digital data center that tells you how many run hours and how much power it has used over its lifetime.This helps you keep track of its activity and status.The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas is in it.From a safety point of view, the product has a circuit breaker for overload protection and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The Dewalt DXGNR7000 comes with the standard paperwork and an owner’s manual, which will help you get the tool up and running quickly.It also comes with oil, a tool kit, and a battery charger.
The Dewalt DXGNR7000 is 27.2 inches long, 27.4 inches wide, and 28.5 inches tall.It has a typical open frame design that makes it stable and allows it to be raised above ground level.This type of design is great for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.Even though this device is technically portable (meaning it can be moved), it weighs 192 pounds and can be hard to move and use without special tools.Still, the generator is easy to move once it’s on the ground, thanks to its wheel kit and folding handle, which is a good way to make up for its lack of maneuverability.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Dewalt-DXGNR7000 compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
DeWalt is a well-known US-based manufacturer of power tools that was established in 1922 by Raymon DeWalt.DeWalt, a current subsidiary of the Stanley Black & Decker company, has 7 manufacturing locations in the US and a wide range of items to choose from, including everything from screwdrivers to portable generators.The portable generator series from DeWalt features open, traditional designs with a range of outputs, some of which are propelled by Honda engines.They are reportedly not all built in the US, unlike many of their tools, and are instead _manufactured under license by Generac_.
A warranty covers the Dewalt DXGNR7000 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out Dewalt’s warranty policies to learn more about the warranty on Dewalt generators.You can also call their customer service line at 1-800-4-DEWALT (800-433-9258).
