High quality product!
Received my WGen 12000DF today and it arrived perfectly shipped and in pristine condition. It was only a few simple steps (attach the wheels, add oil and gas, and attach the battery) before my new generator was up and running. Runs smooth, supplies plenty of power from it's many receptacles, and isn't loud. Next step is a transfer switch for the house and I'm complete and ready for the winter. Thank you for the high quality product!

        It is a Beast!!!
        So, today was perfect weather outside. The power goes out unexpectedly. We ran the generator for a full 2 hours on gas until it was empty and power was back on. This generator powers our whole house washer, dryer. AC (4ton), TV, and lights. It did not blink with the load it carried. It is a truly a beast. After a lot of research, we decided on this one to have true back up generator. We had a certified electrician install a 50 amp inlet to the main breaker box. It is worth the peace of of mind to have it done correctly. Then we purchased our cord from Acme Tools. We recommend going with straight blade in the for the generator as it is easy to plug in and pull out. We even bought a customized cover for it. What a great product and the Westinghouse brand is second to none.

          Great product
          Had a choice between this and the duromax, westinghouse is a better brand, and the features on this generator are awesome. Remote start, push start or recoil, dual fuel, 50 amp outlet, transfer switch ready etc. And plenty of power.

            THE ONLY GENERATOR YOU WILL EVER NEED
            THE BEAST IS WHAT THIS IS. ALL 432 LB'S OF HER. AFTER ATTACHING THE WHEELS AND MANEUVERING THIS THING OFF THE CRATE, IT WAS AN EASY PROCESS TO GET THE BEAST READY FOR FUTURE POWER GRID FAILURES. BOLTED ON THE LIFT BAR, FILLED THE CRANKCASE WITH THE 1.6L OF SUPPLIED OIL, CONNECTED THE BATTERY TERMINALS, ADDED SOME GAS, PAIRED THE REMOTE START FOB. THE BEAST STARTED ON THE SECOND TRY AND RAN WELL. I WILL ADD AS I READ QUESTIONS/ANSWERS ONLINE ABOUT THIS UNIT, I SAW NEW OWNERS SAY THAT AN OIL FILTER WAS NOT DESIGNED ON THIS TWIN MOTOR. I FOUND THE FILTER LOCATED FORWARD FROM THE MUFFLER ON THAT SIDE, LOWER SECTION OF THE MOTOR AN OIL FILTER RESIDES. THIS GENERATOR WILL GIVE MY FAMILY A GOOD SENSE OF SECURITY WHEN THE NEXT HURRICANE HIT MY AREA OF FLORIDA.

              Exactly the generator i needed to be safe
              The product is diverse and provides exactly what i needed with gas and gasoline intake to run needed appliances and heat during outages where one realizes you are all by yourself. Only caveat which i took of one start is that it arrived with rust bumps in my case which i'll have overpainted easily.

                Great Purchase with remote
                Very pleased with my purchase of the Westinghouse Model Wgen9500DF Generator! Starts right up and runs great on either gas or propane with plenty of power for important appliances, furnace, AC units along with TV, radio to keep up to date on information if needed! Has 50Amp plug for the high amp use too. Start or stop with remote from even inside the house. I recommend this unit!

                  Top of the line
                  I brought this generator in May and have used it a few time when the power went out. We had a 50 Amp connection wired to the house. My house is all elect and the generator ran everything in the house including the AC. I have only used propane up to this point. My house is a 2100 sq ft home and it had no problem powering everything.
