Cons

DuroStar DS4000S
DuroMax XP4850EH
Yes

• The generator has no RV ready outlet meaning that a manual connection must be made. • It is a heavy machine since it weighs 102 pounds hence making it not easy to be relocated. • Recoil starting is time consuming which delays work.

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.
