The control panel has a wide selection of outlets, including 2x120v household GFCI outlets, 1x120v 30A twist lock outlet, 1x240v 30A outlet, and 1x240v 50A outlet. There is also a voltmeter and 12v DC posts for charging external batteries.
This generator has a push-button electric start powered by a 12v gel-type battery. A manual recoil cord can also be used to start it. Though you can charge the battery while the generator is running, the general advice is to buy a trickle charger to keep the battery in shape when not in use. This will ensure you don't encounter a discharged battery when bringing the unit out of storage.
DuroMax don't have a remote start option on any of their models. This sort of starting ability can be found on some Westinghouse and Champion generators. The reason DuroMax don't have this option is that you must adjust the choke manually when starting the engine. This makes a remote starting option unfeasible.
The engine has a splash type oil system rather than a pressurized system, so no oil filter is needed. Like many generators, this one has a sensor that will automatically stops the engine if the oil level falls below a safe level. If the engine will not start, examine the oil level as part of a troubleshooting process.
