Pros

DuroStar DS1050
DuroMax XP4850EH
Yes

It has a lightweight design which allows easy transportation. It has a low oil shut off which protects the engine from being damaged. The generator has got a spark arrest muffle which enable its safety use. Has a powerful DuroStar 2 HP motor

Yes

• The generator comes in solid steel frame which gives a longer running time without requiring heavy maintenance_ making it less costly. • It supplies sufficient power to bigger households and job site appliances since it has 4850 surge watts and 3850 running watts. • Has an electric starter so you do not need to do the time consuming gruesome recoil start every time you want to use the machine.

Cons

DuroStar DS1050
DuroMax XP4850EH
Yes

The generator can run at its surge wattage capacity for only a short time. It produces noise during its operations hence ending up causing noise pollution in the environment.

Yes

• Its costs are high (dual fuel) compared to traditional engines- usually 15-30% high. • Incase Gasoline is ignited, a person maybe burnt or injured because Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. • The generator is a potential source of electrical shock incase it’s not kept dry.
