DuroMax Generators Information
Electric Start “E” Models
Each DuroMax and DuroStar Generator comes equipped with Electric Start. Recoil backup is always an option. All generators include the 12-volt starter battery. Some models have the standard electric starter. Standard electric starters have a three-position switch with Off, Run, and Start. Move or turn the switch from the Off Position and hold it in the Start Position until the generator starts. Release the switch and it returns to the Run position.
Duromax Generators equipped with electronic features may include pushbutton start. Turn the battery switch to On. Push the button. The generator operates the starter automatically to start.
Recoil Starting follows the same startup procedures as electric start. Move the generator start switch or battery switch to On. Pull the handle slowly until you feel resistance, usually within the first inch or two. Pull quickly to the end of the cord to start the engine.
Always return the handle to the retracted position before releasing it.
Read the starting procedure in the owner manual for specific steps to follow for your generator model.

Dual Fuel Hybrid “EH” Models
Dual Fuel Generators operate on either Propane or Gasoline for greater flexibility. Propane has advantages over gasoline. It is easy to transport without spilling or noxious fumes filling your vehicle. It stores for long periods without deteriorating. It’s commonly available in twenty-pound tanks and larger tanks are available. Using propane reduces emissions, making it a greener and less carbon polluting option.
Gasoline is readily available throughout the country. It’s easy to get and convenient. If you need gas for a generator other engine, take your gas cans to the gas station and fill them up. Gasoline provides more energy than propane. A dual fuel generator running on gasoline can provide more power than running on propane.
Dual Fuel generators have a different power capacity in amps and watts for gasoline and propane. If you intend to purchase a dual fuel generator for use primarily with propane, check the propane power capacity in addition to the gasoline power capacity.

CO Alert Carbon Monoxide Protection “HX” Models
Generators equipped with CO Alert detect carbon monoxide concentrations that exceed safe limits and shut the generator down.
Carbon Monoxide or “CO” is a colorless, odorless gas that causes carbon monoxide poisoning. It is present in the exhaust gases of all internal combustion engines including generators. Appliances that burn fossil fuels including natural gas and propane also produce carbon monoxide.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning can result in serious illness, permanent brain and organ damage, and death. Operating an internal combustion engine indoors can raise levels of CO high enough to cause death in just minutes.
Portable Generator Safety Rules to Live By
A generator equipped with CO Alert is NOT safe to operate indoors.
A generator equipped with CO Alert cannot detect carbon monoxide inside your home. Install a carbon monoxide detector on each level of your home. Basement, First and Second Floor, and Attic.
Open windows, fans, even an open garage door do not provide adequate ventilation to make operation indoors safe.
Never operate a generator indoors. Always operate portable generators, including those equipped with CO Alert, at least 10 to 20 feet away from the home in a non-confined space. Do not operate the generator in garages, sheds, or any building.

Camping, Recreation & RV Generators
The popularity of Recreational Vehicles has grown in the last decade. RVs are the home away from home you can take anywhere from RV parks to remote campsites or sometimes, the big box store parking lot. Most RV parks have shore power connections, but for those times when you’re getting away from it all, the RV Ready Generator supplies power for house batteries, air conditioners, and appliances.
Most RVs have a 120-Volt 30 Amp or 120-Volt 50 Amp shore power connection. RV Ready DuroMax Generator models come with the MX2 switch for full power at 120-Volts. Average operating volume is approximate 68 dBA at 21 feet. An inexpensive adapter cord converts the 120-Volt Twist lock receptacle to a 120-Volt TT-30R or 120-Volt 14-50 Amp Receptacle
