Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Generator - Read specs on all generators in this price range... pretty quiet & seems to be well built Purchased from HomeDepot in March after my old generator quite. This Westinghouse generator seems to be well built and had no problem maintaining a steady 120V will full 6000W load (4 portable electric heaters at 1500 Watts each). My gas gauge was a reading a bit low on a nearly full tank of gas. I contacted Westpro service and received a real response to my email in 15 minutes! Westpro service has US based customer service and was a pleasure to deal with. Even though my gas gauge was only a little off they immediately offered to send me a replacement gauge. I received a replacement gauge in a few days! I am very happy with the quality of this generate and their customer service was the best I have even received by far. A+++++ very happy with this purchase June 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grounding This review is to mainly advise whoever is going to use this generator to back feed into a main panel in your home. I put a junction box outside my house to hook generator into and wired it to a 30 amp breaker in my panel. I also installed an interlock devise for code purposes. The problem with using this gen to backfeed is that you have to basically unground or float the neutral wire on gen. The gen comes with the neutral bonded to ground. To unbond the gen you have to pull the whole front panel off and take box that covers all the wiring off and then figure out what wire to cut or unscrew from ground. This is where I'm at. Trying to figure out what wire to unhook. So do research before going through pain and expense of running wiring to panel. December 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 19, 2013
