Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Generator - powers entire house! This generator is an excellent purchase!! The handles and wheel kit install in minutes. It started on the second pull. The battery was also charged and started the generator effortlessly. I have this set-up with an interlock kit backfeeding through a 30A breaker. It powers my entire house (2400 ft2) without issue including the microwave, coffee maker, etc. It is quieter than most non-inverter generators out there, but don't get me wrong, it is still loud. I look forward to the peace of mind of being able to power my entire house (no extension cords) during our next power outage. I recommend this to anyone! Also - watch for sales. I got this from HD at an incredible price. The only con I have is the generator ran at 3750 rpm instead of 3600 rpm out of the box, so our digital clocks advanced while running on generator power. I will fix this shortly. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by WH7500 is a solid buy The generator is a solid buy for under $900. Power is good. Quality is decent. Noise is lower than my last generator. I converted the generator to a tri-fuel generator. I think it runs much smoother on propane than gasoline. I am very pleased with the product so far. Bonus: the exhaust from propane use is much lower than gasoline. February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Piece Of Machinewry Very nice machine, very quite operation for a portable generator. I ordered this generator and had it shipped to the store it arrived fairly quick the packaging was in good shape, the generator was in perfect condition, and store personnel were accommodating. Set up was a breeze, starting it was simple, it runs well under load, voltage out put is excellent, on of the things I had not seen in any of the reviews online was regarding the battery, this generator supplies a charge to the battery while in use, thus charging the battery many of the portable generators do not include this feature, it also has automatic voltage control providing 60 hertz matching what your local utility supplies, it will power motors like a washing machine or a water well pump, and electronics without damaging them. This machine is well built, and has excellent run time on a tank of fuel, exercise it regularly and it should last a long time. I paired it with the Reliance 10 circuit 30 amp transfer switch (already reviewed) also purchased through Home Depot, they had the lowest price on both, even beating Amazon. July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best portable generator of its size at a substantial discount I have been checking Westinghouse generator prices for nearly a year. At the sale price of $749 this is an outstanding value. Three year warranty, 420 cc engine, 7.5 KW, it will run the water pump, furnace, lights, tV, computers, microwave and even small AC. Setup was very easy, except this unit is HEAVY; the wheels and handles are a must. It comes with a liter of oil, a few tools used to set it up, even an oil funnel, and the battery for the electric start. It started almost instantly and ran smoothly. My meter was reading a steady 62 Hz @ 117 V with no load - that may need a minor adjustment of engine speed - I will recheck with a full load later. I wouldn't exactly say it is quiet, its about like a small lawnmower, not as quiet as a Honda perhaps, but its also $2000 less. I had it delivered to the local HD store; it was ready and waiting as promised. August 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice generator I got this generator on sale. It seems to be of excellent quality and the value is good. I have not used it in an emergency situation yet, but tested for 2 hrs running most of my home. No issues and the generator did not strain under the usage for the test. September 21, 2014
