Product Overview

The WEN 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator is safe enough to run laptops, cellphones, monitors, tablets and other vulnerable electronics. It produces clean energy free of voltage spikes and drops with less than 3% total harmonic distortion, generating 2,000 surge Watt and 1,600 rated Watt of power. The 79.7cc 4-stroke OHV engine operates at an extremely quiet 51 decibels, quieter than a window air conditioner or the average conversation. This limits its invasiveness while hunting, camping, tailgating and restoring backup power. This generator is lightweight and easily portable while providing over six hours of half-load run time. It offers two 3-prong 120-Volt receptacles, one 12-Volt DC receptacle and one 5-Volt USB port. Indication lights on the front of the panel let you know if there's an overload and when the oil is low. The automatic shutter controls the intake of gasoline to match the wattage at hand, maximizing fuel economy. Need more energy? Easily link up two generators using a parallel kit (sold separately) in order to share wattage. And because this is a WEN product, this inverter generator comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer helpline.
  • Extremely quiet 51 dB operation minimizes noise; EPA III and CARB compliant
  • 79.7cc 4-stroke OHV engine produces 2,000 surge watt and 1,600 rated watt
  • Great for the campgrounds, the country, the parking lot and power outages

usually starts on first pull 7/10 times. gives me around 9 hours a gallon for a 150 watt load on eco mode... it's not silent quite, but, 20-22 feet away you can't hear it anymore. I currently live around 20+ tents spaced around 30 feet apart and no one, knows or can hear it running. when the day kicks in and you have noise pollution, i.e cars and such, you have to be about 8 feet to start hearing it. all this in eco mode of course. for the price, good generator. good looking too.

Bought it because of brand name, assumed would be good. When first ran it, would not hold steady RPM. did not matter if no load or if in Eco mode. Contacted WEN, they asked me to take apart carburetor and look at port. it was clear. Then then sent me an entire new carburetor assembly which I installed. Unit seemed to work. Ran it for 15 minutes every few months with minimal load, just to exercise the unit. two years later, power goes out so I need to use it for real. Same issue. will not hold steady RPM, not even close. engine surges every 2 seconds. and its loud, nowhere near a Honda which our marching band uses all the time. I contacted WEN again that same problem of surging existed. They send I need to ship it to them to repair??? That would cost me $100. The thing has only really been used once and never worked properly but they want me to pay to have it fixed. BTW - I am an engineer and I design major appliances so I am not clueless on how things work or how to fix things. This thing has a design flaw, Hysteresis problem with speed/load control. DO NOT BUY!!! Get a Honda, you won't regret it.

    This generator is super light and easy to pick up and carry around. It would be great to take in a camper because of its size. It is definitely quieter than a normal generator, but it is still a little noisy. I actually received this and I couldn't get it started. The customer service was great once I was able to speak with someone and they shipped me a new one immediately. The new one fired right up and it was perfect timing because we lost power in a storm. I was able to get the generator fired up no problem and it worked great!

    I like the fact that Wen gives you tools, funnel, and high altitude kits, low oil and low fuel shutdown with built in overload protection. I have Wen products and they are great and the shipping box that the product comes in is above standard(look at picture). It has a eco-mode for low power usage which you will be able to run 7 hrs. plus(most generators have one speed). It has a Nema l5-30r twist lock, this will be great for camping or rv use(to keep the plug from coming out). This inverter generator gives you a lot of item to use around the home and camping. The reason i chose this generator because the weight(66 lbs.) it also starts up quick(two pulls) and the fuel shut off valve allows you to run all the gas out of the carb. They put a letter in with the generator with your name on it to check out the product and call them with any problems or thoughts(quality).

    I've been looking into an inverter generator to take on our camping trips because they're normally quieter than conventional generators. I think I might have selected a larger one than what we'd need for our camping trips though as the WEN 4000-Watt Gas-Powered Open Frame Inverter Generator is nearly as loud as our larger conventional wen generator. This generator is still great though. Let than 2 gallons of gas will get you 7.5 hours of run time at half load which is more than sufficient for our camping needs. It's compact design allows for us to bring it camping as it doesn't take up much space. The Eco mode is also a nice feature as it regulates the output to match demand which also helps to quite down the unit. WEN also had a great customer support and offers a 2 year warranty. Overall you can't go wrong with this generator but take note, it's still gonna be noisy. You will need to purchase oil before you can use the unit. Either sae 30 for temps greater than 40F or synthetic 5w30 for all temp ranges.

    I got this generator/inverter to replace a larger older generator. Since I have a lot of sensitive electronics including a digital refrigerator I wanted to step up to the more stable electricity that an inverter style produces. I am completely pleased with this new unit. It is far quieter than my old generator. The old unit was so noisy that I always wore hearing protectors when it was running. The generator came well packed. When it was dropped off I noticed a large hole had been punched in the box. I took a picture of it in case the contents were damaged. It turns out it the hole was not a problem. The generator was completely surrounded by resilient foam padding that had protected it. In my opinion one of the impressive things about this the company, Wen, that produced this generator is their attention to customer satisfaction. On opening the box I found a personalized letter from Wen thanking me for my purchase. Even better, the accessories included two carburetor kits for high elevations, tools to remove the packing bolts and a funnel to make it easy to add the crankcase oil. It is always nice when a company includes everything you need to get up and running. I added fuel and oil and the generator started with no issues. I have so far used it to power just about everything in my house except for the range that is 240VAC. One thing that I misunderstood while reading the instructions was the choke setting for starting. While the instructions state that you need to use the choke I tried not using the choke after the unit was warmed up. It was very hard to start then I realized that there was nothing in the instructions about not using the choke when the generator was warm. As soon as I pulled the choke out it started right up. It would be helpful if the instructions made an issue of that since most small engines only use the choke when they are cold. I have not had to use it during a power failure yet but since I live on a horse ranch in the mountains and the power goes out on a regular basis I will soon get that opportunity. During a real long term power failure the fuel gauge and low oil shut down are a wonderful feature. I did buy a twist lock plug for one of my extension cords so that there would be chance of the cord vibrating loose.

    I purchased this generator to run the equipment for my mobile detailing business about one year ago. I have logged over 200+ hours on this unit and used it to power vacuums, commercial steamers, buffers, and lights. There have been periods of time where this generator was used daily for weeks at a time and never skipped a beat. Has started first or second pull every time and never once let me down. It is extremely quiet(especially in eco-mode), great on fuel, very mobile, and easy to change oil. Have had many customers comment on the low noise level output. Unbeatable quality for the price and definitely competes with expensive, high-end competition. Very impressed with Wen's generators and recently upgraded to their 3100w model for more power output. -Darren W Discover Auto Detailing (Port Charlotte, FL)

      Bought this primarily to run lights on my bowfishing boat. I was extremely impressed with the build quality of this unit, and how absolutely quiet it is. In Eco mode, you can stand 1 foot from the front and have a conversation at whisper level. I highly recommend this inverter generator.

            Very quiet especially on echo mode. Had to add a little bit of oil after the first couple tanks of gas, which I assume it needed to break in, so be prepared if you’re out and about with this generator. It starts easy, and I got lots of compliments and questions about it from a bunch of folks and no complaints!

              This generator does well running a 30ft rv with one 15k ac in the Texas heat. I was worried about the small gas tank but in eco mode it will run 8hrs.

                  For a 4000 watt generator it is both reasonably quiet and not to heavy. We have used it on several camping trips. It start easy, and can be lifted ok. A wheel assembly would still be nice for moving the 66 pound generator but non is available. I plan to Jerry-Rig one. I recommend it for camping as it is unlikely to find a 4000 watt generator that is quieter or lighter.

                  The piece of equipment did not even work for 1 second. Spent plenty of time researching for a good generator at a cheap price, and this one let me down unfortunately. Put in the recommended oil and gasoline, and followed the instructions perfectly, yet did not get the generator running whatsoever.
