The WGen7500 , the best generator for the "Average Homeowner"Product Review Rating: 5/5

I purchased this generator for the excellent features it boasted for the price. With the 3 year warranty , how could I go wrong ? Upon delivery , I started the easy wheel and leg assembly on this model. The frame was extremely well built and heavy duty. After adding the supplied oil and completing the initial start up procedures , I thought I would try the remote start that was one of the greatest features of this model. With gasoline in the 6.6 gal tank , I pressed on the remote control start button for one second , to my surprise , the green starting light flashed on the generator and it turned over about 2 or 3 times and fired right off !!! Ran smooth and actually quieter than the Generac generator i borrowed last year from a family member. I am so glad I made this purchase. I would recommend it to family , friends , and any average homeowner looking for a reasonably priced generator.......with more Bang for the Buck !!!

Arrived via freight company. 2 guys off loaded. Removing container was straightforward and packing was not damaged. Added supplies oil to crankcase. Attached wires to battery. A little fuel and it started right away. Slightly louder than I expected, but available amperage for my needs is the key. It has run everything I have tested. Hve not used th ju s unit on RV trip, yet, but I'm sure it will be up to the task.
About the only negative comment us the weight. I had to build a rack for the rear of the RV (5th wheel) that would hold the 200#. I'm about to test this rack in real time conditions. The weight was adequately posted, so I knew what I was dealing with from the start.
Great product once it got here!Product Review Rating: 4/5

Hands down the best value on the market for a 7500watt portable generator
Use it 6 days a week 12 hours a day.Product Review Rating: 4/5
Posted by Vern on Mar 18, 2018
I'm on unit number four. This unit runs 6 days a week, usually 12 hours a day.
The engine and 'service centers' are the weak points on this machine. Three engines have failed around 900 hrs. All three , tried the service center for warranty.......forget it. Went to factory and you ship they examine and will keep , repair or you pay to ship it back.
I worked for a school board for 14 years in the mechanical equipment repair shop. I change oil religiously, service air filters adjust valves and maintain clean cooling fins. Two of the engines had connecting rod failures. Both destroyed the blocks . The third I believe the governor came apart and went between the crank and can gear which pushed the can out through the side of the block. The fourth generator at 300 hrs had the spark plug wire fail ....no idea how or why. I suspect someone tried to remove it thinking it was a Honda engine as these connectors are ceramic and about $48.00 a piece. Westinghouse uses one that is bonded to the wire. Someone tried to unscrew it. I replaced it with a Honda aforementioned connector.
Other than weak engines, (even with) they are great generators for the money. Plenty of clean power, always starts, quiet compared to anything even close to its output. Fuel efficient (always use high test marine gas ) unit runs loaded for a full 12 hours a day as a rule. Oh, only had one other problem: as the 220 outlet burnt out. Possibly due to the male end plug? Would recommend highly if anyone is looking for a part-time portable generator. Even replacement every year, we have found nothing that will compare.

I don't have much to say. I assembled it ran it for about 15 minutes to run small amount of gas out, sounded good and I just hope when I have to use it, it doesn't crap out on me like the last generator I had (not a Westinghouse)
Easy setup, meets needsProduct Review Rating: 5/5

Up and running in an hour, everything checked out. After 8 days on a borrowed generator after late October windstorm, I finally decided to quit putting off buying my own. Now I'm ready. Will run everything in the house, but not all at the same time (heat pump, water pump, furnace, water heater, freezer and fridge, lights.)

I live on St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Hurricanes and power outages are a regular part of life. I've owned four generators over the years. The last one was a Honda Super Quiet 5500K that lasted 15 years, but cost a bundle. Last year it finally died and I searched high and low for one to replace it. All the compatible Hondas were out of my price range and then I came across this Westinghouse model. It's more powerful than the Honda was, but the price was appealing. It's not as quiet as the Honda, but much quieter than any other generator of equal wattage. It arrived damaged, but it was impossible to tell when the damage occurred, from AP to Miami or from Miami to St. Croix. In any case, Westinghouse stood by the product and mailed me replacements for the damaged parts. Category 5 Hurricane Maria hit us on September 19 and brought heavy devastation. We've been without power since then (5 weeks at this writing). My Westinghouse has been working like the Lone Ranger's Ol' Silver - 14 hours a day - providing power through a transfer switch and into the circuit breaker panel of our condo unit AND also powering the refrigerators of three of our neighbors! So far it's been hard working, powerful and dependable. I change the oil and clean the air filter weekly, but other than that, it doesn't require much attention. Starts every morning with the easy electric start. Although some of the metal is not handling our heavy salt air environment as well as I'd like, I can't say that I would rate this generator as anything less than amazing. We're not expecting power back for another 4 weeks or more, so if this hurricane's recovery period does end up taking everything out of it and I need another, I don't think I'd hesitate to replace it with another Westinghouse 7500 from AP. Great Product! Great Value!

Assembly was minimal, and easy. Electric start works well. Battery arrived already charged. Operating noise was lower than expected, with a very good muffler. Frame design protects the entire engine and generator assembly. Purchasing an interlock kit to allow connection into our main circuit breaker box. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a mid-sized portable generator.

Except to test start up We have never used gen. Westinghouse was recommended by 2 friends. They also hope they never need more than the few short times gen was used.
Having some knowledge of stand by generators they liked the features and dependability and would feel comfortable recommending this generator

WGen7500 is a great generator so far. Reliable and good customer service from Westinghouse when you have questions. The generator was delivered by a 48' truck and left in my drive on a pallet. Took about a week. Delivery didn't seem the best method for a reside order.

I studied extensively portable generators from 4K to 12K watts. This Westinghouse stood out at every angle. If you are trying to narrow it down then just go with the one with the longest warranty--Westinghouse!
