The powerful and versatile DuroMax XP13000DX has a 120/240V output thanks to its dual-fuel technology. Even though it runs on gasoline, it has a running wattage of 10,500W and a peak wattage of 13,000. It is powered by propane and has a rated power of 9975 watts and a starting power of 12350 watts. The generator has a noise level of 74 dBA, which is just a little louder than a shower. It has a traditional pull-start mechanism as well as a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). With a fuel capacity of 8.3 gallons, the XP13000DX can run for about 8.5 hours at 0.5 load on gasoline (using about 0.98 GPH), or about 3.2 hours on a 20-lb propane tank (using about 1.47 GPH). The XP13000DX can’t be used to power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (12%).
There are 7 AC outlets on the control panel: two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes, a 120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle, a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle, and a 120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle.Even though this DuroMax generator isn’t quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect to an RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.The XP13000DX is also ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.You can connect it to a breaker box to power your home when the power goes out.
The XP13000DX’s control panel has a handy meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This helps you keep track of its status and activity.In addition to this information, a light shows you if the oil level is too low.The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it easy to see at a glance how much gas is in the tank.As far as safety goes, the device has an automatic shut-off for low oil and a circuit breaker for overheating, so you can use it without worrying.The XP13000DX also has the CO Alert carbon monoxide shut-off feature from DuroMax.If CO levels get too high too quickly, the generator will shut down automatically, a red light will come on, and the engine won’t start again for 5 minutes.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.The DuroMax XP13000DX comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a tool kit, a propane hose, and a funnel.
The standard, open frame design of the DuroMax XP13000DX, which is 30 in, L x 29 in, W x 26 in, H, gives the generator stability and lets it be lifted off the ground.The generator is built to work well outside and in rough places.Even though the generator is technically considered to “be portable,” it will be very hard to move it by hand because it weighs 240 pounds (in the sense that it is movable).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 DuroMax-XP13000DX 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.
