Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bones768 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 5Â by Tony 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.

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.

Worthy of all the good reviews it has received, with the exception of noise. Westinghouse claims 71db, app on my iPhone say 92db.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CrimeDog 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.
