If you’re looking for a high powered and highly rated gas-powered portable generator that can power up your house during power outages, emergencies or provide electricity to remote workplace or sites? Then the Westinghouse WH7500e is the one you’re looking for.
As you know, there are so many portable power generators being sold in the market today, but they are either underpowered or are too expensive to own. Plus, many more massive generators that produce over 5,000 running watts are designed to deliver the rated wattage, but most them are cutting corners on overall build quality or some design features. But for the Westinghouse portable generator, this is not the case.
We’ll give you the reasons why the Westinghouse WH7500e is the one that can deliver all your portable generator needs.
Westinghouse WH7500e Engine Displacement and Power Output
The generator’s heavy-duty engine is a 12.8 HP 420cc XP OVH engine, with cast iron cylinder and forged pistons and connecting rods, which provides more durability. Just imagine, the engine displacement is almost as big as Moto GP racing motorcycles.
The generator provides lots of electricity with 7,500 running watts and 9,000 surge watts, which is powerful enough to power different appliances in your home or drive power tools at maximum efficiency.
These power outputs offer flexibility to power various appliances like small air conditioners, electric water heaters, full-sized refrigerators and freezers, lights, fans and a furnace blower all at the same time.
The generator also features a built-in automatic voltage control that ensures voltage flux that plagues many portable generators will not happen while in use.
Fuel Type and Running Time
Majority of portable power generators runs for about 8-10 hours at its 50% load. The WH7500e is very fuel efficient; it can run up to 13 hours at 50% load with just 6.6-gallon fuel tank. Its advanced alternator contributes to its fuel-efficient operation, which is designed to produce more power using less fuel.
The Westinghouse WH7500e is equipped with an electric start. The engine is also provided with an easy to use recoil start rope with a comfort grip handle. The starting mechanisms are colored yellow for smooth operation which includes the choke, recoil, fuel valve and others.
The electric starter has three positions with stop, start and run. The engine recharges battery whenever it’s in use. It also comes with the necessary tool kit for removing the spark plugs. The suggested spark plug is the Champion RN9YC for scheduled tune-ups. You can also use other equivalent spark plugs like the Torch F6RTC, Bosch WR7DS or the AutoLite 63.
Oil Type and Usage
The generator is a 4-stroke/4-cycle engine. So this means it has an oil reservoir. The package comes with 20 oz oil that you need fill the 20oz oil tank. For oil top-ups, you need to use 10W-30 or SAE 30.
The power panel is laid out nicely for ease of use and features two 120 volt push button circuit breakers for power surge protection. There are four 5-20R outlets and one L14-30R 120/240V Twist-lock outlet for more significant power job requirements or for running a few devices with a multi-outlet extension cord that comes with the package.
Low Noise Levels The noise levels are brought down to 71 decibels with its oversized Noise reduction Pulse Flo muffler. It is a significant advantage if you need to use the generator at night.
Portability and Size
The WH7500e weighs more than 200 lbs; it comes with 10-inch wheel kit that can be easily installed together with the transportation kit. The folding handles and all rubber, no-flat tires will make moving and transport in and out of the house or different job sites easy as pie.
The Westinghouse WH75003 comes with a limited 3-year warranty.
Value for the Money
The Westinghouse WH7500e provides approximately 8.1 running watts of electricity per dollar spent when purchased. It’s bang for the buck with excellent overall performance and quality.
