The updated professional-grade line of portable generators, the XP Series, features impact-resistant cast metal corners and a heavy-duty hardened steel tube exterior. Integrated handle supports and brackets are engineered as part of the casting for even more durability, and an integrated lifting eye makes these generators easy to transport and keep secure on the job site. According to the company, the generator is powered by an OHVI® engine - designed specifically for generator use and built to last three to four times longer than many competitive engines on the market, claims the company. Features of all XP Series models include idle control, to conserve fuel and reduce noise; True Power™ technology, for clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics, tools, and appliances; a large-capacity steel fuel tank with an incorporated fuel gauge, for longer running time; covered outlets for protection from the elements; and an easy-to-access control panel that includes engine choke, fuel shutoff, and on-off switch.
