Looks very much like the Duromax XP9000iH... Not dual-fuel, though.

Unfortunately does not appear to be parallel-able.
It DOES have the parallel connectors on the front panel at the top-center.

I was just going to add that to the other thread's list and you beat me to it. I'm a bit worried it's TOO cheap, but I'm glad others are getting into the business. With any luck Champion will release a closed version of their 100520, and then I'll pounce.

So I don't see any 30 amp 240 outlet on that? All 20amp 120v's?

Edit: says it has it-

Includes: (4) 120v 20A GFCI protected outlets, 120v/240v 30A twistlock, 120v 30A twistlock, 12v 8A DC, (2) USB outlets

It says that all outlets are GFCI protected. Now thats gonna cause it to trip on interlock because of the wiring for the inlet box if it protects the 30amp twistlock also like mine.

There’s a new kid in town. Looks promising, certainly priced competitively. Unfortunately does not appear to be parallel-able.

-----------------------------------------------
so if i am reading this right it is closer to the old 6500..
no fuel injection.
and larger engine so it will drink more gasoline.
and the below specs;
120/240 VAC, 60 Hz, 63.3 / 31.7 A, 1 Phase
12 VDC, 8 A (nominal)
5V USB, 3.1A
7600 Running Watts
9500 Maximum Starting Watts
------------------------
so if you are going to try to get all of the power out of the gen set you will need to modify it for a 50 amp twistlock and a 50 amp breaker...

this is a pass for now.....
plastic covers etc.
not the same as a eu7000isag

The 7600W (31.7A) continuous will run just fine with the 30A twistlock, and is sized specifically for that L15-30 outlet. It's a 30A breaker on each leg. 9500W (seems optimistic - the equivalent Duromax is only 9000W starting) is under 40A per leg and shouldn't trip the breaker immediately. The thermal (heat) mechanism located inside the breaker expands in response to temperature and is calibrated to trip when current exceeds the breaker rating. Thermal protection is designed to respond slowly (not instantly). This allows overcurrent to exceed breaker rating for a moment so when a motor start-up pulls a surge of amps, then the breaker does not trip.

grin i do not like to run that close to rated...
not on import plugs and sockets...
just asking for trouble....

the gen set it could be over rated as a gen set output power...
need to see one on a load bank for the torcher tests.
lol or smoke show....
time will tell... but just as it is red does not make it a honda eu7000isag!

just not sold on the hf stuff.....
way too much invested in my high dollar electronics to connect to an unknown measure....

That looks to be an incredible buy for an inverter unit with that high of a wattage rating. The Harbor Freight Predator line of generators has held up well, and are in well proven widespread use.

So I looked a little closer at pictures and specs. It does appear To have parallel ports but doesn’t mention parallel ability in the product description.

Also, the unit is advertised as a “super quiet“ generator. The decibel rating is 67db vs an eu7000 which is 58db. 67db is hardly super quiet.

And the Duromax is listed as 68dB. So these are about 10 times louder than the Honda!

Someone please educate me on this... what good is a parallel kit when it already puts out 30 amps? are there things that have a 50amp/120v plug? Might it be so you can get a 50amp/240 by paralleling it? If so, how is that possible? I'm confused here...

Thanks!

A good parallel kit will support 50Amps and sometimes 60Amps @ 240V.

get the hf gen set on a good load bank first!
i bet it puts out way less than they advertise....
just saying....
low cost normal is low quality...
not always... but in electronics gear you do get what you pay for!
I sure have been happy with the honda eu series of gens..
