(THD) Total Harmonic Distortion is <23% This is far from the less the 6% required for sensitive electronics. I believe connecting quality surge protectors can help if powering sensitive electronics. Source: https://generatorbible.com/generators/westinghouse/wgen5300v/

Works as stated so far.
Customer review from westinghouseportablepower.com logo
I purchased to have on in case of emergency first time started with 2 pulls. It is a loud generator but that won't matter if there is a power outage. I like the little things like oil, funnel, and tools that come with it. Will try to update review once I get it hooked up to my transfer switches, and get some hours on it.

Compact and versatile!
Customer review from westinghouseportablepower.com logo
Bought this last month for the snowfall we get very winter and knocks out power. Love how compact it is and storing is easy. I got this model due to the dual fuel option. Have a propane as a back up gives me peace of mind

Started right up!
Customer review from westinghouseportablepower.com logo
The unit arrived at my door via FedEx. Like some other reviews, upon unboxing found the alternator end cap to be badly dented. Listening for noise while slowly pulling starter, then checking under the cap for any shorts or other damage all was good. Believe the damage occurred prior to being boxed as there was no damage to any of the shipping materials. Filled crankcase with the supplied oil and added recommended gasoline. Turned on fuel supply valve then let sit for a minute to prime the carburetor bowl and check for leaks, all good. Switched on engine control switch and set choke. One slow pull to find TDC, then a solid pull and the unit quickly came to life. Ran unloaded for the recommended one hour break in. At first the frequency regulation was marginal but now seems very good after the break in period. At present have run up to about half load with no issues. Good voltage regulation, no momentary glitches. Noise level is acceptable, not the absolute quietest but definitely much better than some others I have used. All in all believe this generator will work well for my emergency power needs. Will try to add to this review when I get a chance to really slam it!

Wow, Great generator, feature rich, yes pull start
Customer review from westinghouseportablepower.com logo
Westinghouse Generator Dual fuel, model WGen5300DFv. Received November 7, 2020 Took photos all sides before unboxing. Noticed no damage. Assembled the generator per instructions. Went great, tools provided. Levered stationery end up, rolled into my basement. Another possibility of a storm, so I need to do the break-in run. Filled with correct oil and quantity, funnel provided. Added gasoline. Ready to run. Opened fuel valve, verified gasoline not propane, ON, 120V, choke on, started on first pull. Let it warm a bit. Turning choke off. Walking around looking noticed air filter latch loose, not camed-over tight. I tried latching it a couple times only to discover the latch was broken. The rivet was bent in the middle and not long enough to go through the lever where it pivots from. Pulled the rivet down to see if I could straighten it. I was disappointed, don’t know if I can get a replacement latch and rivet. I am satisfied with the cranking, displays power, reasonable quite, like my push lawn mower. I checked it out with some lights and a circular saw. Didn’t phase the governor. So we have enough for emergency power needs. I have a much smaller generator and it would support a freezer and refrigerator, nothing else. We need more than that for colder weather.
