Additional Information
DuroMax’s XP5500EH Dual Fuel portable generator is designed as a powerful user-friendly unit that provides 5,500 watts of power using gasoline or liquid propane. This Dual Fuel workhorse packs a punch and will keep you powered at home, at work, and at play. With its 4-gallon fuel tank, this unit will run 8 hours on a single tank of gas or even longer on propane. Enjoy safe, reliable power whenever and wherever you need it. Compared to gasoline, liquid propane lasts longer, costs less, has a longer storage life and won’t gum up the carburetor. The generator’s flexible line allows you to hook up to any size propane tank.

The XP5500EH features an electric “rocker start” and easy recoil pull start. This unit is durable enough for construction sites and super portable, perfect for tailgating or camping. 5,500 watts provides the power to run lights, TVs, a refrigerator, or any other necessary items during a power outage. Engine noise is reduced by a super quiet muffler and cushioned 4-point motor mounts, allowing for relatively quiet usage in public areas like campgrounds, parking lots, and parks. Idle control automatically lowers the RPM’s when the generator is not in use, reducing noise and saving fuel. No-Flat, semi-solid tires make for smooth and easy transportation. Like all DuroMax generators, the XP5500EH is built with all copper windings, which will last you for years.

Features:
• With 5,500 starting watts and 4,500 running watts, this unit can handle heavy loads, from lights and a refrigerator to a home air conditioner and high amperage power tools.
• This generator runs on gasoline or propane, giving you the freedom and flexibility of fuel choice.
• The DuroMax 225cc OHV engine is a workhorse that provides plenty of power to handle multiple jobs, from powering high voltage appliances to heavy duty power tools.
• MX2 Technology lets you choose between operating the generator at both 120V and 240V simultaneously, or at 120V only with full power. Ideal for usage with RVs.
• Low oil shutoff protects your investment by automatically shutting the generator off when it senses that the oil is low.
• The power panel includes a wide selection of outlets for maximum compatibility in your applications including: 2 120V household GFCI outlets, and 1 120/240V 30A twist lock outlet. The panel also includes a voltmeter and 12V DC charging posts for charging external batteries.
• All DuroMax generators are both approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and CARB (California Air Resources Board)

Specifications:
• Amperage: 37.50A/18.75A
• Voltage: 120V/240VAC & 12VDC
• Frequency: 60 Hz
• Engine Size: 225cc
• Product Dimensions: 25"L x 22"W x 22"H

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Several Outages Later We've had a few multi-day outages plus multipul short ones since we got this unit. I have kept it hooked to the Grill sized LP tanks to keep from having to fool with gasoline. It runs 2 wells, a shop with a window AC, large barn w/ lights and fans,1700SQ FT house. Will not run a water heater, Central AC, electric oven or electric dryer, but it runs a LOT of stuff, we have a lot of chargers and stuff. It cranks right up and has never failed, I'm very proud of it. It just kept us powered after the hurricane Laura.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Power Outage I bought this generator after the statewide power outages in Texas this past winter (2021). While we were never affected by the outage it was clear that the risks in a state with an isolated power grid that we'd need to be prepared for the future. Out of the box it was as quick as removing the shipping braces, installing the wheels and handles, and adding oil and fuel to get this up and running. I've run it on both propane and gas without any issues. I have the house wired with an inlet connected to the breaker panel with a manual interlock to make it as simple as possible. Power went out at 8 pm, didn't come back on until 3 am due to thunderstorms and within 20 minutes power was up and running safely disconnected from the main line while providing power to my home. It's small (5500 watts) so it's a balancing act to ensure that key things are powered on without tripping the generator, but it wasn't all that difficult with mild temperatures outside. I recommend purchasing the biggest generator you can afford and these DuroMax duel fuels are the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator This was a great deal. There is assembly required. It is very heavy so when it gets delivered you will need to watch for it cause UPS or Fed X really sucks at getting it to your door

I bought the xp5500bh thinking it would be plenty of power to run my 30 amp camper but it always trips the breaker if I run another appliance with the AC on. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? It happens on both the 240 and 120 sides

Asked by: Jeff
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact us at 844-DUROMAX or support@duromaxpower.com to help you determine if there's an issue and that the generator is wired correctly to your RV.

xp5500eh generator I don't see thd is this safe to run flat tv's? On box show's tv. Reliance transfer switch says 10-3 with ground good up to 100 ft. between generator and switch. Do you think this will work?

Asked by: fred
The XP5500EH will have a THD of about 10-12% under load, and we wouldn't recommend running sensitive electronics like a television on the generator without an on-line double conversion UPS system in between. Yes a 30 amp 10 gauge copper cord can be ran for up to 100 ft without an issue, but an 8 gauge will be better for less power loss.

Just bought xp5500eh generator and going to install reliance transfer switch 8000 watts. I do not plan on powering anything large with double poles just 5 15-20 amp circuits. Do I need to use power boost to run whole house?

Asked by: fred
The XP5500EH generator should be ran in 240V mode if the transfer switch is using a double pole breaker. Please note that depending on the load used on each 15 or 20 amp circuit that you might need to alternate the 5 different circuits.

Can you run sensitive electronics such as TV and computers? If not what would be the outcome if you elect to?

Asked by: jr70895
No, we wouldn't recommend running sensitive electronic equipment like televisions, or desktop computers without an on-line double conversion UPS system in between to clean the power. If sensitive electronics are ran on generator power that's above 5% THD, then possible circuit damage can occur and a shortening of the circuit service life.

I have this unit (5500) and I also have the 4500 EH ..... Is there a way to link them together for more power? I am trying to run a compressor and the 5500 will not push it but I'd there were a way to add the 4500 I'm sure it would get it off the ground

Asked by: José
No, the XP5500EH wouldn't be parallel compatible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
