Q:what does the "sc" mean printed after Wgen on the model of the generator. I'm looking for Wgen"v" also and want to know what the "v" stands for. Can you help?
by|May 31, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, the "s" at the end of our product names indicates that the unit has electric start. The "c" indicates a co censor on the unit. The "v" indicates a value model, this normally means the unit does not have remote or electric start and instead only has the recoil/manual start. If you have further questions you can reach out to us directly at 1-855-944-3571 or support@wpowereq.com.

          Westinghouse Portable generator
          This generator is really nice. We have used it with Gasoline and Propane. Both operations are as expected. The manual and maintenance records are helpful.

            Looks Great!
            Just received this today. Purchased in prep of what is supposed to be a really busy hurricane season. Had purchased a very shallow shed to store it last week and needed a generator that would fit into a space that was only 26" deep. This generator worked perfectly. Also purchased this particular model because I wanted one that would run on propane as well as gas (propane is easier for us to store).

              Easy to use!
              I just bought the WGen5300 after living in Florida my entire life I figured it was about time. We have had a couple multi-day power outages that left everything in the fridge ruined. I plan to use this for the fridge and an AC window unit. I think the set up was rather easy and I was able to get it started on the first pull after turning the choke on. It wouldn’t start leaving it off per the instructions so turn it on and then off right after it kicks on.

                This WGEN5300 generator was so easy to start
                I needed to purchase a generator, so decided on the WGEN5300, easy to pull start, and troubleshoot, you don't have to be mechanically inclined to operate it. I'm a mechanical design engineer, this model is a great design.

                  Love it!!!
                  I was surprised to find that I could use this generator both with gas and gasoline. Best feel comfortable using it during the hurricane season.

                      Easy to assemble and store
                      Opened my generator today and it took about 15ish minutes assemble the few parts it had. It came with the majority put together and in good shape. It is heavy but with the wheels and handle, it is easy to transport and move around. We also have some built shelving and it fits well under the last row of shelving, on the ground.
