Duromax XP4400E Portable Generator 4,400 Watt
This The Duromax XP4400E portable generator has created a lot of mixed reviews.It have some really good points for a portable generator in lower price categories with some people have had a dream to run with it and like it very much,while some others can’t stand with the minor thing and had trouble during running with it.
The XP4400E generates 4400 watts from its 7 horse power four cycle engine (but make that 3500 continuous watts).It have two 120 volt DC outlets and is reasonably lightweight at 116 pounds,so this generator is portable enough to transport in your RV and within 3500 watt it will powered a lot of appliances in your home.However,users of this generator report that it’s at its happiest at about 2500 watts.
At $4++ with delivered free to your door,that’s a fairly good price considering they included the wheel kit (some brands doesn’t include it and charged seperately for the wheel).it is well packaged and sturdy looking and also have weights a litlle over 100 lbs.

Many user do said that this generator have a good lower noise level and hasn’t need to worry to much when they put and running it outside of their house.This would be naturally mean that it would seem acceptable to be running at camping grounds too,which is a hugely bonus.But don’t expect to much as this generator run with gas and it is normal for all generators to making a noise and the only different with all of them is “loud or quite noise level”.
If you intended to running the XP4400E a lot at your home,I recommend to install a transfer switch so you can easily connect the generator to your home’s main breaker panel.You should be able to install it yourself and the switch will cost you about $2++.This transfer switch is recommended for all portable generators that use for home as it does to clean away the untidy and dangerous cable that lying everywhere.
While it is not a top brand name as you known,but It works well and is barely audible from inside the house.It certainly will not be able to power up the whole house but it can definitely keep your gas heat’s motor and pump running along side with the refrigerator and sump pumps including a number of your essential devices.
