Questions & Answers


Will this Westinghouse 2k watt gen run a small (9cf) chest freezer?

Asked by David June 7, 2017

I'd have to believe it will. 2000 watts is pretty much power for any one unit.

can i plug a regular refrigirator , fan and a ligth at the same time

Asked by mimi April 2, 2019

Yes, the WGen2000 will be able to power these items at the same time.

Electric start?

Asked by bee3 June 23, 2017

Pull start with choke. Started right up.

What can í run

Asked by angiw October 28, 2017

We use it for tailgating. First day used it to run 5 crock pots and a ~500W stereo system. No issues.

Can this be used for a sump pump in case of a power outage and is able to be run indoors ( basement storage/back room)?

Asked by Ak April 27, 2020

Absolutely! Also, I've had GREAT support when I have a question by calling their support number. No AVR's!

How much does the unit weigh?

Asked by Frank April 9, 2020

97 pounds according to the manual.

The specifications list this as 2.6hp and the blue marketing brochure list as 4.6hp. Which is cor...

Asked by Tom September 25, 2020

I don't think this engine is big enough to be 4.6 HP, but what's important is the power output, and that is 2000/2500 watts as specified. This has been a very reliable unit for over two years now, and I'm glad I bought it.

Do you need to ground this generator to operate it - run a few things like a home fridge and lights?

Asked by Gavin May 29, 2020

If you connect the generator to your household system to run appliances, it must be grounded, and a transfer switch is required. For portable use, no ground is needed.

Can it be run the under department of a motorhome

Asked by Daddyo January 18, 2019

Not a good idea! The exhaust has to go someplace, and you're likely to end up with a motorhome full of carbon monoxide. You'd need to find a way to duct the exhaust away from the motorhome.

Will this start a 150psi pancake air compressor

Asked by Dan May 2, 2020

Yes, easily.

Fits the need perfectly
As a semi retired engineer I am very picky. I reviewed many generators before I decided on this one from Westinghouse. It is made very well, has a cast-iron cylinder sleeve for longevity and weighs more than any other generator of its class. That is not a bad thing, it means there is more metal in the alternator and in the engine. Very satisfied and would highly recommend a Westinghouse generator to anyone . For ease of access it was put on a frame that was elevated two feet on the back porch. The big plus for me was the long run time on a tankful of gas. I had larger generators in the past that were expensive to run for a pro long time.

Quite Generator
Customer review from logo
I bought this generator back on April. I just unboxed it couple of days ago for the Isaias storm power outage. It was very easy to set it up with the quick start up instructions. I had it running in no time and it's very quiet compared to others. I was able to run my refrigerator and my tenant's too Also some other low energy items. I'm so glad I purchased this Westinghouse generator.

I bought this generator for hurricane season because of it's size and the great reviews I read. This generator will run my fridge a few lights and microwave if needed. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a lightweight powerhouse. Compared to other ones I looked at, this by far is the best you can get for the incredible price!!!!

Easy Setup!
Customer review from logo
Right out of the box, the WGen2000 was easy to setup and get running. Started on the first pull and ran perfectly. Compact size and relatively quiet motor are perfect for the occasional power outage.
