Product Overview

The Westinghouse iGen2500 Portable Inverter Generator produces up to 2,500 peak watts and 2,200 running watts, making it perfect for emergency home backup during a power outage or for recreational uses such as camping and tailgating. Powered by a 4-Stroke OHV Westinghouse Engine, the iGen2500 is engineered to automatically adjust its engine speed to produce only the amount of power you need for enhanced fuel efficiency. The iGen2500 can simultaneously power most large appliances such as refrigerators and furnaces while powering any necessities you may need while traveling. It's lightweight and portable, weighing 48 lb. with a built-in carrying handle. The iGen2500 has an ultra-low tone for community-friendly use, operating as low as 52 dBA which is quieter than the average conversation. Unlike traditional generators, the iGen2200 safely powers sensitive electronics like plasma/LCD televisions, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices by producing clean, stable power at less than 3% THD. If you need more power, the iGen2500 is parallel capable and can be paired with another Westinghouse Inverter Generator using the Westinghouse WHPC Parallel Cord (sold separately). The iGen2500 has built-in safety features including low oil shutdown and overload protection while backed by a 3-year limited warranty and lifetime technical support.

Asked by Louie May 9, 2021

That all depends on the watts needed to operate the hammer. I would think that it would but check your watts demand of your hammer to determine it it will work for you.

Asked by Wetgenerator February 22, 2021

Any generator will need to stay dry maybe build a wooden box to put over it with a space to let the exhaust out. You could mount something to the patio and side of the box to hold it down during a storm but have it be able to unlatch to access the generator.

Asked by Ron January 12, 2021

Bought this after multiple power outages from wind. I have recently moved to the PNW and have ever had this issue. It does exactly what we were looking for. Just wanted a means to keep our food from being spoiled.

Does IGen 2500/2200 have a fuel shut-off valve so I can burn off the fuel so it wont sit & go stale in carb when stored

Asked by Huw November 4, 2020

no. it has a bowl drain but will drain gas until the tank is dry as far as i can tell. it wont just drain the carb. bowl.

Will it be a problem at over 3000 altitude?

Asked by BB October 27, 2020


Does this unit have fuel shut off to avoid fuel setting in carb during storage?

Asked by Jayco August 11, 2020

Yes, it has a carb drain

How to parallel with the Westinghouse WHPC?

Asked by Antony July 30, 2020

The iGen2500 can be used in conjunction with the WHPC Parallel Cord. The WHPC cord can only be used with other Westinghouse units. If you are looking to parallel a Westinghouse Generator and another manufacturer's generator, you may use out 304PC Parallel Cord which has specified parallel ports.

What about performance at higher altitudes? Say 4000-5000 ft.

Asked by Logger July 15, 2020

The iGen2500 is not engineered for high elevation usage but will still work with enhanced performance if used in conjunction with a high altitude kit. Please keep it mind this kit still may not provide the same optimal performance compared to operation at normal elevations.

by Musa
Look awesome
Great price, looks good thanks so much!! Haven’t used yet though.
by Krisbob
Great purchase! Very Quiet!
Purchased this a week ago. The features easily beat out the competition of similar generators. Having 2 120v plugs makes a world of difference. The USB's are a big help as well. Runs very quiet and fuel efficient. Simple to use. So easy my wife can handle it with no problems. The scrolling digital read out is a big help as well.
by SCSuperfly
Better Than Expected
Received Generator in perfect condition with all items enclosed. Added oil and fuel and it started on second pull. Everything works properly. Ran it for a while yesterday and a few hours today with various loads and it didn't miss a beat. I don't find it loud at all. I only plan to use the generator at home during power outages - hurricanes AND ice storms. I will maintain this generator as per the Owners Manual and hope that it will be dependable for many years to come. It meets my needs perfectly.
by pyromania54
Powerful and compact
I bought the iGen2500 a week ago for Hurricane season in Florida. We will be using it to power a portable AC unit and some home electronics when the power goes out.
by floridaman954
Great choice
Just did the break-in and testing and this is by far the easiest generator to operate. 1st pull start. And by far the quietest. Added a run hour meter, which is the only feature lacking. Great buy.
