The Excel Power XL4000i-DF 3.8KW Dual-Fuel Generator.

Following on from the success of the Excel Power XL4000i and the Mark II XL4000ii generator, Excel Power Generator listened to what the market needed and developed the XL4000i-DF Dual-Fuel version. This has the same feature-packed specification as the XL4000ii but with an integrated LPG system so it can be powered by either fuel. 

Being one of the few ‘factory made’ LPG propane generators this sits in a class of its own. The full petrol rating of 3.8kW only drops to 3.5kW when on gas so it still powers an amazing amount of equipment. 

Mobile caterers and other professional users are finding it more difficult to use petrol or diesel generators at venues and events. But LPG generators are accepted everywhere as the fuel is safe to store and the emissions are lower. 

With the high quality inverter board this generator emits out pure sine wave electricity actually better than what you get in your own home.

Power Rating of the Excel Power XL4000i-DF

Whilst running on petrol this generator has a maximum output of 3800W (3.8kW) and a continuous rating of 3500W (3.5kW) this gives a great improvement in capacity over the standard size of 2kW.

When the generator is switched and running on LPG then the power output is lower – 3500W (3.5kW) maximum and 3.200W (3.2kW). This is still a good amount of power with the added benefit of slightly lower noise levels and much lower emissions. 

The maximum rating of this XL4000i-DF is 3.8kW (3.5kW on LPG) and this is the most this generator will provide for a short time to ‘start’ things. Some devices have a starting current that is higher than its running current so this allows for that*. This generator will run comfortably at 3.5kW (3.2kW on LPG) as its ‘continuous’ rating but run it at a higher load and it will trip out.  

If you are looking for more power or want some spare capacity then have a look at the Excel Power XL8000ii the biggest and grandest inverter generator available which is also available in dual-fuel version the XL8000i-DF 

If you find that you can live with a lower powered generator then the smaller and less feature packed XL3500i or XL2200i are excellent machines as well as the smallest of the range XL1400ii.

Maybe you don’t need the dual-fuel LPG version of this model so there is a more economical petrol only version – XL4000ii 

XL4000i-Dual Fuel Generator – Electrical connection

The XL4000I-DF has two UK standard 3 pin sockets – this generator was designed in the UK for use in the UK! 

It also has a 12VDC ‘car style’ socket for powering low voltage items and a 5VDC USB connector so you can charge USB devices directly.

Parallel Connection

The XL4000i can be connected in parallel to give you nearly twice the power output of 6.5kW. You will need a parallel kit so you have the larger sockets to get the full power from both generators. 

This provides a high power, flexible solution. If your power needs are lower one day you can run one generator and the next you may have a higher power requirement so simply parallel the second unit in.

Stroke low emissions petrol/ LPG engine

The higher the generator output, the bigger the engine – the XL4000i-DF uses the SV230 223cc LPG converted overhead valve engine which is emissions certified to Euro V standard. This is the best petrol engine emissions standard currently available.

Excellent features of the Dual Fuel Generator- Simple to use and easy to store

The XL4000i-DF inverter generator is a market leader with some excellent features:-   

  • Easy Electrical Starting SystemOne touch starting – no choke to pull out and warm up. 
  • Pull Cord Backup Starting – If the battery is flat then this is no problem. Simply start with the back-up pull cord.  
  • Eco-Mode switch for low load running – Enjoy lower noise levels and lower fuel consumption when using the generator for low load running. 
  • ‘On The Fly’ petrol / LPG switching – no need to shut down and restart when changing fuels.
  • Full dashboard with digital read-out for engine hours, voltage and frequency – you can keep an eye on voltage, frequency and hours run. 
  • Low Oil Level Protection the XL4000i-DF monitors the oil level, prevents starting and shuts down if necessary. 
  • Extendable Handle and Rear Wheels – not only is it lightweight  it has wheels and a handle for great manoeuvrability. 
  • Low Noise Level – All generators make noise but this is one of the best at 62dB(A) at 7m at 50% load.

XL4000i Dual Fuel Generator- Durable, long running & economical

You need a generator that can stand up to the demands of the job and this XL4000i-DF comes in a tough and robust case.

Open frame petrol generators run at 3000rpm all the time – inverter generators are better as they vary the engine revs according to the load. This means lower fuel consumption and lower noise levels when running on lower loads. 

It also features a 10 litre petrol tank to give a long time between fill ups and when on a gas bottle it will run as long as the gas lasts.

What’s in the box

Here is what you get; 1 x Excel Power XL4000i-DF generator, 1 x user manual plus tool kit. Also, the XL4000i is covered by a 2-year warranty

*Please check the output of the generator is high enough for your needs. Some items have a very high starting current (such as motors) so please make sure it is big enough to handle everything you want to power from it. 

Hampshire Generators can also maintain your generator with a regular cost-effective service plan or one-off visit. Simply call 01329 722390 or inquire via the contact us page.

When will I receive my order?

In most cases, a product on our website will give you an indication of the current stock availability, but shipping is not uniform for all products. We maintain fantastic relationships with all of our suppliers and we aim to get products to customers within 3 business days of the order being taken. This availability is based on information from our suppliers and from sales and supply patterns. The availability information given is a guide only and not a guarantee as there are external factors that we may not have control over.

Coronavirus Update – UK couriers and transport companies will not currently guarantee delivery times and we are seeing a slight delay in deliveries – please bear this in mind when ordering.

Specialist Couriers – Some items such as the larger portable power stations are sent by specialist courier as standard couriers will not accept them. These specialist couriers are very reliable but sometimes don’t have tracking or timed delivery.

Split deliveries – We sometimes need to send orders for more than one item by different courier networks (portable power stations for example) – so you may receive items at different times.

1500rpm machines or larger diesel gensets however are typically priced on application and all depend on the destination. We will be happy to quote on any large diesel generator and discuss your needs over the phone or via email.

Most orders placed before 12pm on a business day will be shipped from our suppliers on the same day provided the product is in stock. If you need to be certain an item is in stock and available, or if you need a lead time, it’s worth calling our sales team on 01329 722390. Pricing for extended shipping areas like Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and outlying Islands, Outer Hebrides, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles, and other postcodes not considered as UK mainland can be obtained also by calling our offices.

Please note that the processing of a payment and acknowledgement email does not constitute a legally binding contact. In the case of mispricing, changes in stock quantity, or if we believe the machine will be misused, we reserve the right to cancel the order and provide a full refund.

Heavy Items

You will be contacted by phone after ordering a larger item to confirm a delivery date before your order is dispatched. Large or heavy items are dispatched through a pallet network, so if we can’t get in contact with you, we may be unable to send out your item on a next day delivery. Please be sure to include a working phone number with your order.

Heavy items will require the recipient to make arrangements to take delivery of the goods and may require the recipient to help the courier unload the item. For items that are delivered on a pallet the courier will leave the pallet as close to your door as possible.

1500rpm diesel generators will require forklift (or similar) offloading; if this is not available then we can arrange a Hiab offload at an additional price – please call us to discuss any delivery requirements.
