      Q:Can this convert to gas and/or natural gas?
      by|Apr 23, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Terry, no, Westinghouse does not authorize any type of fuel conversion to its generators. Converting a Westinghouse generator to run on fuel it was not designed for will void your warranty. Thanks!

        Q:Westinghouse 28K generator. In the description it mentions back up power supply and remote start. Is the remote start from your phone? Can this generator be hard wired as a standby generator hooked to an automatic transfer switch?
        by|Feb 20, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Marc, the remote start is a key fob. Additionally, we do not recommend hard wiring your portable generator as a standby generator as that is considered a modification and will void your warranty. Thanks!

              Great generator
              I purchased this generator to replace my Dayna generator 4400 watt 9000 surge. This is a much needed upgrade I have been putting off for a while. I’ve only ran it for a hour to break it in. I had a 6 horsepower compressor running and it didn’t phase the generator but I hooked it up to my old generator and it pulled it down. It will be a big difference the next power outage we have.

                I’ve used the generator a little over an hour
                I haven’t had to use the generator for a power outage yet but have ran it to break it in. Very powerful ran a compressor didn’t phase it at all. Assembly was very easy putting wheels on and the arms. Then putting in the oil and it fired right up. I upgraded my generator from a 4400 /9000 surge big difference for sure. Have put it off for far to long.

                  Powers Up Perfectly…
                  We’re very pleased with our new generator! It was delivered in pristine condition and required nearly no assembly save the wheels. We think it’s the perfect size and amount of power for a moderately sized home. No regrets!

                    Solid Generator
                    This generator is a beast. Built solid and is heavy like a tank. It took a bit to get it out of the shipping box, but definitely manageable. Definitely the “What if” anxiety is gone and looking for the chance to put this generator into action.

                        Powers almost everything
                        I had to wait a long time to find one of these in stock, but eventually received one a week ago. The (large) box was placed in my garage by the delivery company. Assembly was easy sitting on it's wooden pallet. Getting it off the pallet is a different proposition. Be sure that you appreciate how heavy 600lbs really is. You need something capable of lifting that. At the limit, four reasonably strong men could probably take a corner each and lift it while someone pulled the pallet out from beneath it. I used the front loader on my tractor with the bucket removed. The weight is the only negative so far, but I knew that when I bought it. On the topic of weight, I would be very reluctant to try to move this down any sort of hill/slope by hand. I initially put just over a gallon of gas in the tank. It wasn't enough. Given the size of the tank, I wasn't surprised. Added 5 gallons more, and it started with no problem. Is it noisy? Well, any generator that runs at 3600 RPM is going to be noisy, but I have a 6kw generator that I have been using to power essential items, such as freezer, water pump, family room lights, microwave, kettle etc. This is, subjectively, no noisier. It is obviously a different sound, twin cylinder vs single, large cooling fan etc. But placed in the same location where I used the old generator, with the doors closed, it is practically inaudible, as was it's predecessor. Adding a second socket to power the rest of the circuits I was able to power the entire house and run different appliances, water heater, etc. I also tried out the AC, which fired up ok. I don't dare switch it into heat-pump mode though, it has twin 20kw heat strips, and my thermostat is a little too liberal with their use, and there is no way to disable them. One comment on using the less expensive 50A plastic covered cables. I tried them out in 65°F weather, and even at that temperature, they are very stiff. Mine also have right angled plugs rather than straight which makes plugging them into the generator difficult unless you do it right. The wheel gets in the way if you try to plug in directly. The trick is to lay the cable behind the wheel and plug in the front/leftmost first, then lay the next on top of that and plug in the second. It's easy this way (see the attached photo). Alternatively, pay a lot more for rubber covered cables and/or find cables with straight plugs rather than right angled. It's also worth noting that the plastic covered cables become MUCH more flexible when they are warm, so you might consider storing them indoors rather than next to the generator.
