Have owned the generator for a couple of years now. Very easy to assemble, have used it on numerous occasions to power my house during power outages. Will power a full size stand up freezer, a refrigerator/freezer, lights, TV and my down stairs central AC unit. During hurricane Matthew the battery was dead (I guess my trickle charger stopped working) I started the unit on the first pull. Unit is very good on gas. The only drawback is the noise, however it is comparable to other generators in its size range. I start the generator every month or so and use non-ethanol gas in it and have had no problems.

Easy to set up. Clear directions. Started right up. Other customer reviews spot on. E.g. Gas guage not very accurate. Small detail. Overall very pleased with the purchase. Waiting for the next power outage.

Assembles easily and started immediately upon use of starter button. No power outage yet, but hooked it to the house adapter and tried it out. Carried the load of the entire house as long as I didn't try to run the electric range and electric water heater. We have a private well and it is more that adequate to handle the well demand and regular household use.

I have researched about all the brand name generators in the 7500 watt range and chose the Westinghouse Model # WH7500E. I ordered it from the Home Depot and it arrived in 2 days. The generator was easy to assemble and came with oil and a funnel and spark plug wrench. I connected the battery and added gas and hit the button and it fired right up. I ran the generator 4 or 5 times for about 2 hours each time with no problems. It is hooked up to the house though a transfer switch and runs all the necessities with power to spare. Well pump, sump pump, freezer, refrigerator and lights, TV and radio. The battery is being charged while it is running. The neutral and ground are bonded but the web site shows how to float the neutral. Very easy. The voltage and frequency are very stable. West pro claims 9% THD and that is better than most non – inverter type generators. Even my two cheap uninterrupted power supplies run fine on its power. I would say it is quieter than most 7500 watt generators. The only issue is the gas gauge is off by about a half a tank. Other than that it seems to be a nice, well-built generator. Watch for sales, paid $799.00 with free shipping to store. I would recommend it.

The Westinghouse Portable Generator was easy to assemble. Filled the engine with the oil supplied by the Manufacturer, connected the battery, filled with gas and it fired right up.
Connected some load to make certain the breakers and electrical plug-ins worked properly, which they did but haven't had to use it much since the purchase but intend to write more as it is used more.
Also purchased a switchable load control box at HD to connect to my load center (breaker box) to connect certain appliances and lights as our remote area has numerous electrical outages in the winter for quick connection to the Portable Generator.

Easy to assemble, good instructions. Powerful unit. Much quieter than I was expecting. Can barely hear it in my house. I also installed a Transfer Switch to run my home in case of a power failure. I used six circuits on the TS and the generator didn't even notice. I have power to spare.
There were two glitches. 1.) The fuel gauge is not accurate. When I filled it to the mark in the filler neck the gauge only shows just over half full. 2.)The power plug for the home power cord connection has one connector that prevents the cord from being inserted unless you insert it at an angle first. I called warranty service and they sent me a new plug immediately.
Over all though, I'm thoroughly pleased with this unit. Can't wait for a power failure! LOL
