CONCLUSION

Pros

DuroStar DS4400E
DuroMax XP4850EH
Yes

It is designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use. It is designed with a convenient voltmeter which provides it with an easy way to monitor power output anytime.

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 DS4400E
DuroMax XP4850EH
Yes

It is not recommended for powering sensitive electronic devices because of its relatively high THD (<12%). It weighs 125 lbs which makes it difficult to be manually lifted.

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.
