  1. Great 8K Generator

    5 star rating Product Review Rating: 5/5

    It was easy working with AP Electric on this, it shipped quickly. This generator is designed extremely well, decided to run it on Synthetic fuel to really make it last, it's also very quiet for a Large generator. Especially when the Low Idle control is on, it sounds similar to the Honda EU2000i DB levels. Will be running it for an hour each month until we experience a power outage.

  2. Great Generator

    Just received this unit from AP Electric and set it up on Synthetic Oil, tested the Outlets and Main Breaker shutoff, all performed perfectly. This Generator has everything you're looking for and it's designed great. Until I need it for an outage I'll be running it for an hour every month, it is very quiet for a Larger Generator, when the "Smart Idle" switch is on, it is extremely quiet, like what you'd expect out of the Honda Inverter EU2000i line of Products.

    I had a feature-rich wish list during my search for the ideal generator and this Westinghouse 8KPRO was the only one I found that offered all the features I wanted. I installed a home interlock and it will now run most everything in our home. I am well-pleased!

    Arrived on time. Easy to put together. Filled tank hit starter and started immediately. Used to run air compressor and radial arm saw and no strain. Fairly quiet.

    Great price on this Westinghouse WH8KPRO portable generator. I live off the beaten path in Oregon. Usually on websites that offer free shipping they call me and tell me there will be an additional charge on shipping after the purchase. Not AP Electric. They shipped the generator on the same day I ordered it and it arrived on Wednesday after I placed my order on Monday. Wow. Generator works great as well. Fantastic experience

  7. Excellent Value

    Very pleased with this generator...It has features not found on others. Right away after unboxing it the well thought out features are noticeable. When fueling I spilled some but noticed the depression stamped on top of the tank guided it away from hot side of generator! Nice... Programmed the remote start following directions...easy. Pressed the remote start button and she fired up.First try...Nice. It's quiet, too.The idle control helps that but even while running under load it is not loud!! Hooked up all my critical loads and my central air....runs all of it no problem!!
    Another feature that comes on this is the cool down mode that's progamed when the remote is used to shut off the gen...it will make the gen run off idle for a time to cool off...this inherently preserves mechanical properties of the engine...Very nice feature!! As I said...I am very pleased with this gen.
    And then there is the thoughtful fuel drain tube....I don't have to run all of the fuel thru the motor...Nice!! Westinghouse has really gone above and beyond the others with their generators and I'm glad I purchased one!! Apelectric had the best deal on these and easy to talk to...I spoke to them a few times before ordering this one from them...they even cleared up a question I had about an advertisement on someone else's offer...Turns out the other offer was misleading!! Thanks for helping me not to get taken AP...

    Great portable generator and a great price. AP Electric was easy to do business with and it arrived quickly. Works great and easy on the fuel consumption. I would recommend this 8kW portable generator
