Because it uses a dual 15 amp circuit breaker, you should never worry about overloads.

Customer Reviews

At the moment, there are over 360 reviews on Amazon about this product and the number is increasing because of the good price and the efficiency of the DuroMax XP 4400E.

Most of the customers keep this portable generator for a more than two years and it still runs well.


Our advice is to unhook the battery if you plan to keep the generator in storage for a while.

Note for California residents: This model is not CARB-compliant. All of the units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.

A good solution for this is to buy the XP4400E-CA version.
