Do you have longer power cords available for purchase?

Asked by: Lori
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. I believe it would be best to reach out to the manufacturer for assistance. The manufacturer is Westinghouse, and their customer service department can be reached at 1-855-WHHELP1 (1-855-944-3571).

Must Westinghouse parts be used? Can I bring it to any generator service company or do I have to take it to a Westinghouse service provider? HD please don't answer by stating ask Westinghouse customer service. Thanks!

Customer Reviews

6,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator-Storm Unit with 25 ft. Power Cord is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator, better than expected!!! I was skeptical about buying a generator that I had never heard of, but after reading all the great reviews I decided to go for it. I received it and it took no time to put the wheel kit on and put oil in it and it started on the first pull. I am very pleased with this unit. I hooked it up to my house and it ran everything I wanted with no problems. It is considerably quiet for its size and very user friendly. I would highly recommend this generator to anyone looking for a quality, well made generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backup power when I need it Instructions easy to understand. Easy to assemble. A one hour test with my remote receptacle for my transfer switch, running 10 circuits including the hot water heater and well system was flawless. It's a gas engine so expect noise, but the noise is outside so it's manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth while investment This generator was purchased after 2 major power outages in my area. After much research i chose the Westinghouse because of reputation and previous reviews. I must say i am not disappointed. The unit is easy to use and starts with the first pull. I installed a sub panel for the generator and can power everything in my home except the central air. This is a must buy for anybody looking to purchase a easy to use generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Choice! I needed a generator for residential use during power outages. I bought this product, rather than its competitors, because of the 3 year warranty and its solid construction. Best I've ever owned. Easy to assemble, and I liked the inclusion of of the 25 foot power cord. Hopefully it will outlast the warranty by many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great emergency generator I have had the WH6000S for over a year now. I start it every two weeks or so and it has started on the first pull every time. It is easy to change the oil and perform other maintenance on it. The low oil shut off is a nice feature. Very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from westinghouse generator wh6000s I purchased this generator online from The Home Depot after the power went out on my street during a storm. Rode my bike down the street to see if I could find out why the power went out. Could not find the problem, noticed about 8 homes had their lights on because they had generators. So after that I went to work looking for a reliable, economical yet powerful generator at a fair price. I looked at all makes of generators on the computer and came up with two possibilities the Westinghouse and the Honda. Would have liked to have the Honda because of the name and features. However the Westinghouse promised the same features with the cost only being a quarter of the cost. I am not at all disappointed with my purchase of the Westinghouse WH6000S! It was very easy to set up. Put the oil in and some gas. Did not even have to use the choke because it started right up and ran very smoothly. Seemed quieter than the other ones I've heard of the same size. Plugged in a light then an air compressor. The generator seemed to handle the drain very well. Can't wait (yeah right) for the power to go out so I can give it a real test. It promises to be able to handle most of my power needs. I want to get an electrician to install a transfer switch so I can easily power the essential things in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this unit. I feel confident about the generator performing well when needed. Installed the tires, handles, put in the oil, checked it over. Started on the first pull. Tested it on a couple of circuits plus ran some power tools. This unit runs very smooth and quiet. I shopped around and looked at a lot of brands. I think this is the best bang for the buck especially with the 3 year warranty and the 25 foot power cord included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is just what we needed. This product provides just what my wife & I needed, for continued comfort, and use of needed appliances, etc., during outages caused by storms.
