Product Description

Protecting your home, business and personal security with portable power

The Westinghouse WH7500E 7500W Electric Start Portable Generator offers astonishing versatility for maintaining emergency power for computer and medical equipment and backing up critical lighting systems, cooling equipment and heating functions for your home, business or farming operation. Color-coded controls and an easy electric starter make the generator easy to operate in emergency situations where losses of power could compromise security, damage your business reputation or lead to loss of online business.
Product details and specifications

The handles and wheels of the generator's chassis install in minutes, and the 120/240-volt capabilities include four 120-volt standard outlets or one L14-30R 120/240-volt Twist. The battery comes fully charged and ready for easy starts on the first try. Operating at 12.8 horsepower, the generator should always be used outdoors in open areas to prevent carbon monoxide fumes from accumulating. The dimensions of the assembled generator measure 31 inches in assembled height, 35 inches in assembled width and 21.5 inches in length. Features and benefits of this versatile portable generator include:

• Simplified operator control center

• One-touch Westinghouse electric start system for ease of use

• Iron sleeved engine for durability and low maintenance

• Exclusive VR system-voltage regulated power

• One of the quietest generators on the market, thanks to operation via Pulse-Flo muffler

• Ready to go right out of the box, with included wheel kit and handle kit (some assembly required), oil funnel and tool kit

• Manufacturer's Warranty: 3 Year Limited (Consumer) - 2 Year Limited (Commercial)


Beyond the stats: Protection in the digital age

Stats, specifications and features seldom tell a complete story. In the communications age, power is critical for many functions, like running business operations, maintaining coolers and freezers, and providing computer power and communications access. Power surges or natural disasters can compromise your business interests or personal security in a variety of ways, so purchasing a backup power source isn't just a luxury but also a necessary practice for safety. This Westinghouse portable generator provides protection against frozen pipes, hot temperatures, high humidity, food spoilage and loss of running water in homes and businesses where electric well pumps are used. The 7,500-watt model of Westinghouse's portable generators comes with a three-year warranty, 9,000 starting watts of power, a 6.6-gallon fuel tank and an 11-hour running time at 50 percent power. Customer reviews at Amazon rate the generator at 4.7 out of 5.0 stars, and industry workers and consumers have relied on the Westinghouse name for quality since 1886.

    AP Electric has the best price by far on the Westinghouse WH7500E. May neighbor bought one a year ago and loves it. However, I bought the exact same unit as he did yet I Paid $125 less than he did by purchasing through AP Electric. Fast Shipping. Highly recommend

    I purchased a Westinghouse 7500E generator from AP Electric and I'm completely satisfied with the service I received. The generator was delivered quickly and professionally to my driveway in perfect condition. After doing the required preperation to the unit, it fired right up and ran like a top. It was also the best price around and AP Generators kicked in a free 20' power cord for nothing. How can you beat that?


  5. AP Electric Generators had an unbeatable price.

    This genny looks and behaves like the top of the line for it's class. Certainly, the reviews all over the Internet would encourage that perception. I've made the natural gas conversion, added a tach, installed the transfer panel. All that's left is a real weather/power event this Winter. The purchase and delivery was smooth and predictable. I think at this point, we're good to go.

    I purchased the generator at a very good price and received it within a few days. The generator arrived in good condition and the assembly was easy. I haven't had to use it, but I did start it and it ran well for the several minutes it was in operation. It is compact for a 7500w unit.

    I am very pleased with the Westinghouse 7500E generator. Several people have seen it and were impressed. I have had to use it twice because of power outages and it performed as expected.


  11. With this generator, and it's unlimited fuel supply, the family should feel very secure and comfortable this season.

    The WH7500E genny is solid, through and through. Initial prep for it's first run was easy and the event went off without a hitch. I've since converted the fuel source to natural gas, and the performance of the WH7500E has been outstanding. I added a tachometer to acurately tune the gas delivery. Though I may not need it, I've chosen to run with a quart of "Mobil 1"5-30 full synthetic oil. I use this oil in all of my vehicles, so I've got plenty standing by. The idles at about 3700 RPM. The oil is just a little insurance that may add some life to the system. I'm in the Pacific Northwest. We get more than our share of outages...every Winter. This will be the first time I'm secretly hoping for a limb to fall on a power line.


  12. I am sure it will handle the power need in my house.

    "Took about 15 min. to put the wheels and handles on and fill with oil. Moving it to
    the patio from front was an easy task. Started right up and ran for about 15 min
    very smooth. It is not as quiet as I was hoping for but better the the last one that
    I had. Haven't had a chance to run it in an outage but sure it will take care of all
    my needs. Hurricane country here in south Texas so I am prepared for the worst
    and hoping for the best. Shipping took an extra day because Estes handed it off
    to a local delivery but the delivery was smooth.


  15. I would definitely order from them again.

    "I received the generator in August 2014. It was packaged tight and neat and had absolutely no damage or scratch whatsoever on it.

    After I connected the battery, added the oil and gas, the generator fired up on the first push of the button.

    I was hoping it would be a little quieter, but all in all, I'm happy with the purchase.

    I must say, AP Electrics was great to work with and customer services was polite and professional.

    WH7500e, Had a minor problem when I got it. Called Westpro power systems to see what to do, they said to take it to there service center in Midland Michigan ( a city close to where I live) They picked it up (at a cost) and brought it back FIVE WEEKS LATTER. When they drove in my drive way I could not believe my eyes, It was trashed screeched up, dirty, rusty and bent. Called Westpro and sent them some pictures. It was about half hour later got an e-mail telling me they were sending me a new one, will arrive in three days. The service center was to pay for the one they trashed. I have never had better service then what I got from Westpro power systems. That's the kind of service you get when you buy a Westinghouse.


  17. I will come to this website for my needs first before I go anywhere else.

    "Just received my generator this morning. Estes Freight was the company who delivered. They called in advance and also called me and told me they were on their way. Excellent Service!! The driver was very professional. I also had a sales rep from APElectric call me personally. Was very impressed with their service.Besides the price was the lowest I could find and it came with a free cover....very sweet.

    Got it put under my carport an proceeded to uncrate it. Was the easiest assembly I've ever done, (considering Swing Set and furniture). Was very careful to read the entire section on assembly and operation. I was do in 30 min flat....from beginning to end. One slight drawback is that the generator took just a tad more than the 1.05 quarts of oil as it proved that the low oil shut down worked like a charm.

    After I started it, I put a small load on it to test all the receptacles.....flawless. Now it's time to finish my small slab, get my transfer switch an get ready for hurricane season."

    I have had the unit only a week and have not had to use it for storm duty yet. Unit seems well built, comes with all accessories needed to get started including engine oil, battery, and tool kit. I added the oil and put in some gas and the engine started on the first pull (unit has electric start, but I wanted to see how hard it would be to start manually). I used it to do some projects this weekend and all went well.


  19. Would purchase again from AP Electric Generators.

    This is a good deal on a generator in this size range. Although it had not been rated on Consumer Reports I took a chance and tried it. I was most impressed with the oversized muffler and price of the unit. The generator is significantly quieter than my Generac 5500 Watt Cont. and will handle more load. The power output is slightly more stable, but I would not encourage using computers,flat screen tv's, and cable boxes without the aid of a apc power conditioner. The only con I see with the generator is the lack of an oil filter on the drive motor. I love the electric start but it's not necessary, it starts easy with recoil if battery dies.


  21. This generator is fairly quiet with a substantial spark arrestor/muffler on the engine.

    Like others have posted, I did a lot of research on generators before deciding on this one. I had hoped to find a Honda 6500 on Ebay, but even used they were 3 times the price of the Westinghouse, so this is a great alternative. Unfortunately the RPM is governed at top level, so when you start it up, it runs wide open with no option to slow the motor down if you have little or no load on it. I suppose to produce the correct voltage that is a requirement of the design. I know the generator/invertors that I considered (Honda and Yamaha) have a more sophisticated throttle control to let the engine slow down to only produce the amount of electricity you need to power the load placed upon the generator. That idea and design would save a considerable amount of fuel, and in a power-out situation, gasoline might be hard, if not impossible to obtain. Always remember you can siphon gasoline out of your vehicle if you are sheltering in place. I liked the fact that everything needed (1 quart of engine oil, handles, wheels, and assembly parts) were included in the shipping box with a manifest that identified each part. Assembly could not have been easier. The included battery was fully charged. When I got it all put together and properly grounded, and fueled with 1 gallon of Sta-Bil treated fuel, it fired right up on the second revolution. Someone called the engine a "CHONDA"(A Chinese copy of the great Honda engine), proving the adage that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In conclusion, with the 3 year warranty that most generators do not have, this generator is the best buy on the market currently available. If there ever is an EMP pulse that takes the U.S. grid down, this generator might not be your salvation, but it will keep you in heat, water, and lights much longer than the unprepared. Now you just have to be able to keep others from taking what you've got.


  22. From the time that I was just browsing and needed advice to when it was delivered AP Electric took care of me with great customer service every step of the way.

    The unit assembles very easily and can be done by one person even though two would be a good idea due to the weight of the unit. Once you get the wheels and Handles on it is very easy to move. On to how it works and all I can say is Perfect! It starts with just a push of the starter button and only takes a few minuets to start running smooth. The unit is also very quiet and is as loud as the Ryobi 2200 watt The estimates of about as loud as a lawn mower are pretty accurate.

    AFTER I REPAIRED THE BROKEN FUEL LINE. The generator was delivered with the fuel supply broken at the shutoff valve. Other than that I have not had a power failure but based on testing I did it seems to be a quality product electrically. If you buy this generator be sure you do a thorough inspection before adding fuel.

    This generator came to the house with no damage to the unit or box. Setting up the handles and wheels was a snap. Adding the oil that came with it and the funnel also supplied was very easy. But,, when it came time to start it I was surprised that it fired up imediatley. Also, iI have a 4300 Kawasaki pull start that is very quiet, you can carry on a conversation standing right next to it, and so is this generator. Noise level is down in the 70s which makes it easy to be around while running. Tried it out after warm up on an old stove I have in the barn with all the burners on and also the oven and it purred very nicely.

    I followed directions and generator started up immediately. I let it run for awhile and could not here it running while I was in the house. I have it on a transfer switch and everything worked as planned. In past years I have lost electricity at least once every winter. This year so far I have not lost power so I have not had to use the generator for any length of time. So far I like what I bought at the price I paid for it.

    After nearly a year of research on generators for home use, I decided on the Westinghouse 7500E. The reviewed data and reviews on lots of different makes and models before making this decision. I chose to purchase the generator from AP Electric because of the price and no shipping charge. The order was easy to place and the generator was deliver in just a couple of days. It took just a short time to install the wheels and handle. As I was looking over the unit, I found a break in the fuel line. I e-mailed AP and received a new fuel line in 2 days. Easy to install. After I read through the owners manual, I put gas in and the generator fired right up. I have ran the generator a few times since I took ownership and it has performed perfectly. So far, the customer service has been great.

    After Hurricane Sandy flooded my basement and knocked out power for weeks I knew I had to eventually get backup power. After reviewing several makes/models I decided on the WH7500e. I started it on a 7 degree day. It took a few tries but it fired up and ran great. I have not put my house load onto it yet as I am awaiting my electrician to install my inlet box to my main. But so far Im pleased.

    When purchasing anything I search for goods made in the US. I missed the boat on this one! Went back to look for any part of the manual, spec sheet, or advertising that stated it was built in China. Nothing. It wasn't until the box arrived that is had that information. Sad, it really isn't built in Pewaukee WI, but at least it is engineered here!

    I did a lot of research when it came time for me to upgrade my generator. I looked at all the other brands and most were ok but the Westinghouse offered a better seine wave pattern then the rest. That is a good thing for most electronics and hd tvs. When I decided that the Westinghouse WH7500E was the one I wanted, based on my needs and the fact it was an electric start I looked around for the best pricing. I found that Apelectric was the cheapest with free shipping to my door. Took about a week to arrive because of the holidays, clean neat box, no damage. Put together the handles and wheels, added the oil that came with it, connected the ground cable to the battery, added a little gas and fired it up. Roared to life instantly and the noise level is very quiet. You can talk in a normal voice to someone while standing right next to it. Checked the voltage and it was right on 120 vac and 60 hz.

    Very impressed with this generator. It is much quieter than expected (dads small 3500 watt off brand unit is louder). It is very well made featuring cast iron sleeve and forged internals. Really like that it charges its battery while running as well, something not so standard with other units.
