A DuroMax 4-stroke V-Twin engine with 23 hp powers the DuroMax XP15000E. It gives out 120/240V, runs on gasoline, and has a running wattage of 12,000W and a peak wattage of 15,000. The generator has a noise level of 83 dBA, which is just a little louder than a garbage disposal. It is started with an electric starter that is easy to use (battery included). The XP15000E can run for about 9 hours at 0.5 load on a full tank and 10.6 gallons of fuel (fuel consumption is approximately 1.18 GPH). Due to its relatively high THD (12%), the XP15000E can’t be used to power sensitive electronic devices.
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 are all on the control panel.With an L5-30P to TT-30R adapter, this DuroMax generator’s L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect it to an RV.But it’s still not ready for an RV.The XP15000E 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 XP15000E’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, the device’s light indicator will show if there isn’t enough oil.A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.When it comes to safety, this product has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without any worries.The DuroMax XP15000E comes with a funnel and a tool kit, as well as the basic paperwork and an owner’s manual that will help you start the generator right away.
The DuroMax XP15000E is 30 inches long, 33 inches wide, and 35 inches high.It has a typical open frame design that makes it stable and allows it to be raised above ground level.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.The generator is technically “portable” in the sense that you can move it, but at 380 pounds, it may be hard to move it by hand.Once it is on the ground, it can still be moved easily with the help of its wheels and folding handle.The generator has an extra safety feature in the form of a lift hook on the top of its frame, which makes it easier to move, load, and unload.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the DuroMax-XP15000E 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
Duromax is a small company in the United States that makes power tools.Its headquarters are in Ontario, California.Duromax makes pumps, engines, pressure washers, and, most importantly, power generators.In this way, the company only makes portable generators and devices that can use both gas and electricity as fuel.The generators made by Duromax are designed and serviced in the US, but their production is done in other countries.Since its start in 2003, DuroMax is becoming known as a major player in the market for power generators.
A warranty covers the DuroMax XP15000E for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out DuroMax’s warranty policies if you want to know more about the warranty on DuroMax generators.You can also call their customer service line at 1-844-DUROMAX (844-387-6629).
