7,500/6,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with VFT Data Center is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 628.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features for price point After getting a home in FL I needed a Generator just in case. I spent a few weeks shopping learning and comparing available generators around the budget I set. This one had the best power ratings and most of the features I wanted that was in my budget. Assembly of the wheel kit was a snap I am fairly mechanically inclined so for me all it took was a quick look at the parts provided and the generator itself to understand what had to be done. Now looking at the assembly instructions provided they are simple straight forward and easy to understand. Instructions on starting are also detailed yet simple enough to quickly grasp and to me starting it looks fairly intuitive. Overall a decent generator if you do some shopping for the right price or wait for the right sale. I saved about $300 on it just checking all the stores near me for this model without it being on sale at either store.

I researched capacities and warranties for a number of different generators. I also researched the reviews of owners and then determined that owners of the Westinghouse WGEN 7500 were almost always happy with their purchase. I ordered online and it was shipped and received in excellent shape to my home in about 2 weeks. Setup was easy and worked on the first "push". I had an electrician who installs a number of generators install an Interlock system to my outside circuit box and grounded the generator with two 8 foot grounding bars. He also disconnected the "floating ground" wire from the alternator per manual instructions (for connection to an electrical panel). The electrician noted how much he liked this generator, better than the ones they sell and install (except whole house units). I have run it twice, but not for an extended time, but so far I really like it. I highly recommend buying this generator.

On the first day I ran it with a small load to make sure all of the outlets were working for a total of about five minutes. Two days later I was going to run it longer with the same load but when I plugged it the first thing (a lamp with a 60 watt bulb) the bulb lit and went out (bulb did not burn out) so I plugged in a small heater and it would not work. I tried the resetting the breaker and that didn't work. I tried the lamp and heater in the other 120v outlets and they worked fine so I guess the generator will have to be taken to a repair shop which really defeats the reason for having a generator which is power outages. If my New generator is in the shop and my power goes out I guess I'm screwed. I'm guessing the problem is cheap parts and a lack of quality control. This was supposed to be an upgrade from my 15 year old 3200 watt generator that I've used many times over the years without a problem. (it has carb issues now and I can't find the correct replacement carb)., I am very disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck I did my research on portable generators and I selected the WGen5500 as providing the best value for my needs. I needed roughly 5000 watts to cover my water pump, fridge, and household lighting. The WGen5500 covers that with a bit of room. It was less expensive than most other 5000 watt generators and it had features I really wanted, such as being transfer switch ready, having a 240V outlet, and auto-stop on low oil. Assembly was quick and easy. I just needed to add oil (included) and gas, and start it up! I can use it with extension cords until I can get an electrician to install a transfer switch. My only beef is the diagram that "explains" the fuel gauge is not helpful and should be improved. Not a big issue as you can simply glance at the fuel gauge and figure it out on your own, no diagram needed.

AS EXPECTED I HAD 7 TREES COME DOWN ON MY HIGH VOLTAGE LINES LEADING IN TO MY COUNTRY HOME. FIRST TIME OUT I LOGGED 235HRS RUN TIME AND 100 BUCKS IN GAS. I SUGGEST YOU DO NOT USE THEIR 1 QT. OIL THAT COMES WITH IT. I USED SYNTHETIC 10/30 OIL THAT I USE IN ALL MY AUTOS. WHEN I SHUT IT DOWN YESERDAY (10-15-18) I DRAINED THE OIL AND PUT IN NEW. I STRONGLY SUGGEST THE OIL CHANGE! MINE CAME OUT PRETTY DIRTY. I HAVE A TRICK FOR YOU TO DO.1 TURN OFF FUEL VALVE/2 PULL THE FUEL LINE THAT FEEDS THE CARB FROM THE SHUT OFF VALVE/3PULL OFF THE TANK VENT TUBE AT BOTH ENDS GOING TO THE VENT CANISTER/4 CONNET THIS TUBE TO THE FUEL VALVE/NOW YOU CAN DRAIN OUT THE FUEL TANK INTO A GAS CAN. ITS SLOW BUT ITS EASY AND SIMPLE! WHEN DONE RECONNECT YOUR FUEL LINE AND RETURN THE BREATHER HOSE BACK TO THE VAPOR CANISTER. SIMPLE JOB. THIS UNIT RAN LIKE A CHAMP. POWERED MY HOME-WELL PUMP-HOT WATER SET ON CONSERVE-LIGHTS-COFFEE POT-MICROWAVE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Generator I just purchased this generator and basically just put it together and started it. I have not used it yet to power up anything. Purchase was very easy. Online with free shipping. Delivered straight to my house. Putting it together was also easy. Put on wheels, added oil and gas. Generator started on 2nd attempt. Machine looks nice and sturdy but I don't have enough run time to give feedback on reliability. Just an FYI. The bonus card says I would get either a power strip or cover with this review. I really wanted a cover but unfortunately the website did not give me this option. A little bit of false advertisement. I didn't need another power strip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We no longer fear power outages ! This generator works perfectly with our Reliance Controls Transfer Switch. Our last 3 day power outage motivated me to buy this 240V generator. My last one was only 120V and it was a pain running a web of extension cords inside our house. The well pump is 240V so we had to do without water before when we lost electricity. This Westinghouse generator easily powers the well pump so we have running water during outages. This generator passed our test run with flying colors after shutting off the main breakers in our house. We really no longer fear power outages like we used to. Id say we average at least 2 outages per year. Highly recommend !
