The 420cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine in the Dewalt DXGNR8000 runs on gasoline and can put out 120/240V. It has a running power of 8,000W and a maximum power of 10,000W. It has a simple pull-start mechanism and a simple and elegant electric starter to get it going (battery included). With a full tank, the DXGNR8000 can run for about 9 hours at 0.5 load with a fuel capacity of 7.5 gallons (fuel consumption is approximately 0.83 GPH).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplex outlets and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are on the control panel.The DXGNR8000 has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, which means it is ready for a transfer switch.It can power your home during a power outage because it is easy to connect to your breaker box.
One of the many features of the DXGNR8000 is its control panel, which has a data center.The data center gives you information about the power output and total run hours, which helps you keep track of its activity and status.As for safety features, the device has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The DXGNR8000 also has the CO Protect carbon monoxide shut-off feature from Dewalt.If CO levels get too high or rise too quickly, the generator shuts down automatically.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.Along with the basic instructions and an owner’s manual, which will help you get the generator going right away, the Dewalt DXGNR8000 comes with a battery charger and oil.
The standard, open frame design of the Dewalt DXGNR8000, which is L27.3 x W27.4 x H28.5 in, gives the generator stability and lets it be raised above ground level.The design shown is great for the outdoors and other rough places.Even though this generator is technically “portable” in the sense that it can be moved, it is very hard to move by hand because it weighs 183 pounds.Once it is on the ground, it can still be moved easily with the help of its wheels and folding handle.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Dewalt-DXGNR8000 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 DXGNR8000 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).
