Great whole house portable generator!Product Review Rating: 5/5
Posted by Dave on Aug 06, 2017
Perfect sized generator for our house. Haven't used for an outage yet but confirmed it runs everything except air conditioner, even electric range and stove. Clean enough output to run Smart TVs and Easy to start with battery and use. Only wish was that it was a little quieter but relative to other gennies of similar power level, it's quiet enough.
Cranked right up on first tryProduct Review Rating: 5/5

Just got this for the start of hurricane season and have not used it. Appears to be well built, easy to assemble, wheel kit makes moving it around very easy, and cranked right up the first time I started it.

I purchased the WH7500E after experiencing a 5 day power outage in March. Should have bought it before. The unit runs great and is actually quieter than I expected. It's great having the peace of mind knowing that we will never be without electricity again. I'm coming close to looking forward to the next natural disaster. Will update this review when used by necessity.

AP ELECTRIC & GENERATORS IS A GREAT COMPANY TO DEAL WITH. EXTREMELY FAST SHIPPING - I LIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA AND TWO DAYS AFTER PLACING THE ORDER THE GENERATOR WAS DELIVERED.
GENERATOR WAS PACKAGED WELL AND EASY TO ASSEMBLE, ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO INSTALL THE WHEELS, HANDLE BARS AND ADD THE OIL. GENERATOR STARTED UP IMMEDIATELY AND RAN PERFECTLY. ANOTHER GREAT FEATURE, IF YOU NEED TO TALK TO A "AP" REPRESENTATIVE, THEY ALWAYS ANSWER THE PHONE AND ARE WILLING TO HELP OUT THERE

perfect backup generatorProduct Review Rating: 5/5
Posted by Erwin on Jan 16, 2017
i bought this generator due to the fact that here in Venezuela we have a lot of cut offs.
my main reason for choosing this generator was the pice/value and the overall very good reputation.
when I bought the generator and send it to Venezuela it tooks me more than half a year until I had the chance for the installation (and thanks god in this period there where no cut offs).
after I received the generator I unpacked it and assembled it which was very easy and fast. I filled up the oil and never started it just pulled a few times the cord to lubricate the engine inside.
after around six month I filled up gasoline and connected the battery(can not understand that some people have problems with the length of the battery cable according to reviews).
then the big moment...will it start or is the battery dead??
surprise the generator started with less than 5 seconds pushing the starter button.
meanwhile I had to use it a few times and it runs whatever I wanted the generator to run.
definitely would buy it again....

I never bought a generator before so I don't have much to compare. But this one was very easy to set up and I couldn't believe how easy it started when I pushed the electric start button. I think the gas gage might be stuck since it still registers empty even though I know there are a few gallons in there. We have a transfer switch and I tested it while the generator was running and everything worked...two furnaces, water pump, refrigerators (2), and all our downstairs electric lights. I would buy this again.
Very pleased so farProduct Review Rating: 5/5
Posted by Roger from NH on Dec 12, 2016
This generator arrived within four days when I was expecting several weeks.
There was minimal assembly (handles and wheels) and all parts were accounted for.
I chose not to use the conveniently supplied oil and went with a full synthetic.
I added just a splash of gas and wanted to turn the motor over by hand a few times to get the oil slashed around before it's initial fire up so I pulled the starter handle slowly and on the third slow pull it fired up.
I haven't had a chance to use it for its intended purpose but like I said, so far so good.

Posted by Tom on Nov 29, 2016
Best value on the market for a 7500watt portable generator. I searched high and low and read more reviews than I care to admit. The Westinghouse Wh7500E is by far the best value out there. I have used this generator every day for about month now. Performs perfectly. Ap Electric has the best price on this unit. Shipped same day and it arrived in 2 days.

nice machine, better than the porter-cable unit that it replaced. This unit has many features that comparable generators just don't offer, even at a higher price point. I love that it comes with everything (but gasoline) to get you up and running with a minimal amount of assembly. I have recommended this genny to my friends

Decided to get a generator after Hurricane Matthew. Checked on line for prices and size found AP Electric had the best prices. Also I am confident in the Westinghouse brand. It arrived on schedule, very little setup (10 minutes) started up first try. Completely satisfied !

Great so far! We lost power for approximately 30 hrs post hurricane Matthew and the generator worked perfectly powering two full size refrigerators , a freezer, a small AC, fish tank, some lights,and cell phone chargers. Wife was able to hook up the power and start the generator with no issues because I was at work (emergency services.). Took delivery one week prior to storm after I had to reschedule twice due to being at work. Very Profesional freight company and very easy purchasing through Apelectric.com. Thanks
Extremely satisfied with this generator and company!Product Review Rating: 5/5

I ordered this unit by phone and arranged a specific delivery time with the sales rep to be sure someone was at my residence to receive the generator. Everything went according to plan and the generator arrived in less than a week from the time of shipping. (the FedEx tracking number provided did not work though?)
The generator came in time for Hurricane Mathew, although we did not lose power for long. The Westinghouse 7500 set up fast, runs quiet, and powers everything I own when rationing electricity to various needs. As an example, I can run my 2 refrigerators and 2 large capacity freezers (plus house lighting) without experiencing generator load issues.
Great product from a great company !!!
Ran great once I got it started.Product Review Rating: 5/5

Recently ran it during Hurricane Matthew for 24 hours. Powered many necessary appliances. Initial startup was problematic however. Turned over but wouldn't start. Pulled plug, getting spark but no gas smell on plug. I next put in 3 - Tylenol droppersful of gas and it started immediately. Ran perfectly after that, needing to refuel at 11 hours.

Delivered yesterday afternoon. Did not install wheels or handle, but bolted it to back porch which will be it's home near the breaker box where I will have a transfer box installed. Added oil and a little gas for a test run. Started immediately with a toggle of electric start. Ran for about 1/2 hour. It's amazingly quiet. I was standing inside the door where it was running - sounded no louder than a house fan running at high speed. Looking forward to having heat and lights next time the power goes out.

Best bang for your buck I've found been thru two other different brand generators and payed more for them same watts. Westinghouse 7500 is much quieter and noticeably more fuel efficient than them they came with two year warranty and Westinghouse has three both of the other two didn't lasted thru warranty with out having problems and long waits on parts. Only got 100 hours on it so time will tell?

although we purchased this for hurricane outages ,I put it to the test . it runs our 1.5 hp well pump with ease . This was not run when house was plugged in ,,,,,Plugged in the house with heat pump air con off , and hot water heater off . Ran the rest . That's 3chest freezers lg fridge 5 ceiling fans and lights then turn on the micro wave and it was still all good .. I have a 6500 watt diesel generator that will not do this .. And by the wayAp generators have the best price and were very helpful !

I did a lot of research for a home generator that 240v 30Amp supply with a built in voltage regulator. The price can't be beat for this Westinghouse generator. the plan is to install a transfer switch to keep the lights and refrigerator, freezer and A/C in the event of a power outage.

My new generator arrived within 3 days of ordering. I have used it for only about 2.5 hours at a remote job site for construction of a cabin, but it is a well-built machine and is easy to use. I was frankly and pleasantly surprised as to how quiet it was considering its wattage output. I had a smaller Generac iX2000 portable generator that died an early death (& too expensive to repair), but my new Westinghouse machine isn't much louder. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who needs a quality generator.

This generator is replacing a John Deere manual start 6200 running watt generator which I wouldn't recommend.
The positive reviews here and on Amazon sold me on this Westinghouse WH7500E electric start generator and the 3 year warranty and the 5 star customer service by the seller, AP Electric! It arrived in four days right to my garage. Was easy to setup by me and it started right up after installing wheels, handles, oil provided and removing the jumper wire in the alternator per instructions from westpro.com website so it would be grounded properly when plugged into my transfer switch installed by my electrician in our basement with a 220 box in the garage to plug my 220volt cable that feeds the 220 box from the generator.
Need a generator, look no further, buy this unit from no one but AP Electric and you will be happy you did!
Problem with carburetor with brand new machineProduct Review Rating: 3/5
Posted by Mike on Jun 17, 2016
Received generator with no physical damage . Very easy to assemble, oil and gassed up and started on the first attempt. Ran without any problems for about 30 minutes. Then gasoline began dripping out of the bottom of the air filter assembly. Shut off generator, removed air filter cover and had gasoline pouring out of the air filter. Had to clamp the gas line and take to a dealer about 1 hour away. Based upon the assembly the problem could only be the carburetor. Had generator serviced and that was exactly the problem. Malfunctioning carburetor. Had a new carburetor installed and now runs without any problems. Mechanic has serviced 8 machines in the past 3 years and mentioned this was the problem with all of them. He believes it is a very good generator but the company needs to work on the design of the carburetor. Warranty was completely covered for fixing the carburetor. Westinghouse stood by the product. I will see if there are any other problems that occur in the near future.
What a deal.Product Review Rating: 5/5

The generator is great although the height stated in the specs should be noted without the wheels attached. It is so easy starting it is amazing even without the electric starter. Love it.

This has been a generator that's been on my need to get list for some time and AP Electric with their great price made it a no brainer. The delivery was fast and coordinated, just make sure a truck can get into your street. Having a hand truck makes it easy to place where you need until assembled. Assembly was easy. Directions were easy to follow though they need to be more descriptive on grounding (if needed). Unless one is familiar with electric work referring to code will throw off average user. In any case, grounding is an issue if you plan to connect to your house power panel. Push button start is great and has rip cord if battery gives out on you. Great product and I'm ready for hurricane season!

The Westinghouse unit was delivered very quickly by apelectric ... impressive. It was nicely packaged and easy to slap on the wheels and handles, and pour in the oil. Started right up. Within two weeks, a windstorm took our power out, and I used the generator for about 3 hours without incident. Looking forward to many happy hours of backup power.

Good value for the money. Only one minor issue. Would have been nice if access to the battery terminals was better. Got a little tricky getting to the posts to make the ground connection. Had to loosen the hold-down bracket first. Other than that, no complaints so far. Won't know for sure until I have a chance to load it up next time power goes out!
