  • Will a DuroMax XP10000E generator run my shopmaster 300??

    So I bought a shopmaster 300 only to come home and find out I don't have the power at my house to run it. I've been doing a lot of research, and people have said they have ran thier shopmaster 300 on a 40-50 amp breaker with no problems. This generator says it will run 50 amps
    so I should be fine right? Just want some opinions from more experienced people before I go blow 1k for a generator that doesn't work. Here's the specs on the generator.

    Outlets On Power Panel

    (2) 120v 20 Amp 3-Prong Outlets (Standard Household plug).
    (1) 120v 30 Amp Twist Lock (NEMA L5-30 2 Pole 3 Wire).
    (1) 120v/240v 30 Amp Twist Lock (NEMA L14-30 3 Pole 4 Wire).
    (1) 120v/240v 50 Amp Heavy Duty Outlet (NEMA 14-50 3 Pole 4 Wire).
    (1) 10A 12V utility connection for charging a battery or running 12V devices.
    Technical Specifications

    Current (120V/240VAC) & (12VDC).
    Amps: 66.5A/33.3A.
    Decibel: 72 dBA with idle control off, measured from 7 meters.
    Decibel: 45 dBA with idle control on, measured from 7 meters.
    Dimensions Without Wheel Kit: 27" L x 21" W x 22" H.
    Dimensions W/ Wheel Kit: 40" L X 29" W X 27.5" H.
    Weight: 265 lbs.

    Should be fine, however, unless your renting, it might be best to spend that $grand on taking 50 amps off your 100 amp house circuit and run it out to your garage. None of your neighbors want to hear the howl off that genset I'll bet.

      10,000 watts don't get you 50amps

      And I imagine it is really an 8,000 watt continuous power rating so yer lookin at a real world 33amps @240v which is what the specs state.

      It has a 50amp RATED Receptacle

        Seems like a poor solution to a probelm which a xmt would fix. Keep in mind that if you crank that shopmaster up it will pull over 90amps from the wall. Buy a xmt304 same power output, bettar arc, half the power needed, or buy a trailblazer with a feeder.

          OH yeah, stated plain as day 33.3 amps, again not reading well apparently, so nope, barely start that shopmaster.

            OK that makes sense. 33 amps with a 50 amp plug still only provides 33 amps.

            I'm in a rental house and my landlord won't permit any electrical work, even by a licensed electrician. I would much rather go that route but since that's not an option,
            I found an old diesel powered stick welder/generator on Craigslist, the welder doesn't work but the generator does, and it has plenty of juice to power my shopmaster.
            I would imagine it would just be a matter of removing the wires from the old Welder and hard wiring my shopmaster into the generator, or would it be more complicated than that? Does anyone have experience doing this? Thanks for the help I'm kinda a noob when it comes to electrical stuff

                      Most dryers are 30amp, some ovens are 50amps, but very few. This is the wrong welder. 50amps will barely feed a shopmaster. Sell it, buy an xmt. Or...find a place where the proper power is supplied, then watch the electrical meter spin like a propellar.

                        If it pulls more than 50 amps I'm with you get another welder.

                          There's no 50 amp receptacle. There is a 30 amp for my dryer and I checked the breaker box and it's got two 30 amp breakers on it, but if I understand correctly, two 30 amp breakers still only supports 30 amps? I may try to run an extention cord to that and put my welder on the lowest settings to see if it will handle it

                            I'm starting to see why the shopmaster isn't as popular as I thought it should be.... Guess I'm on the hunt for a new welder
