              Great Value for the price point
              Have had several Westinghouse Generators , Wanted this one as its the quieter Inverter type , with cleaner power. Also this model line has been out for about 5 years so spare parts should be available for many years. Started right up after putting in oil and securing battery , Only Gripe is a little shipping Damage - but that seems like the way it is unfortunately when shipping. There Warranty support is usually pretty good resolving issues. Will primarily be using this as a home back up , my old one was a traditional open frame DF5300 - good generator but loud. would recommend !

                Powerful, Quiet, Easy to Transport!
                The Westinghouse name brand, 3 year parts warranty, and great reviews led me to purchase this product. I have loaded it up with many different appliances and it purrs like a kitten. It's reasonably quiet between 65 - 83 DB, you can hold a conversation next to it without any problems. Much quieter than my non-inverter generator. Weighing a little over 100 pounds I am surprised at how easy it is to move with the built in retractable handle and it doesn't feel that heavy if you have to lift it using built in lift handles. A lot of thought went into its design and it is very easy to access serviceable parts. I like the supplied oil funnel as it screws in the oil filler tube which ensures oil will not spill when filling, unlike those other funnels that have a tendency to pop out at the wrong time. However the best part of this generator, is the informative lcd panel. It toggles between 5 screens. The screen I use the most is the one that shows the power load the generator is pulling. In addition to the 5 LCD informative screens, it has an ever present percent of fuel remaining gauge and a percent of load indicator in 25% increments. Very easy to read. One feature that could be improved is to have the ability to change the remaining fuel display from Liters to Gallons remaining, however this is not a deal killer. If you do not use the built in battery to start the generator, the pull handle starts it up in one or two pulls and the remote start key fob works great! This generator, like others, also has an auto shut off if the load exceeds the generator capacity or the oil level is too low. It also has a charger so you can top off the built in battery monthly if the generator is not being used. Well thought out, three ways to start it, easy to transport, perfect compact size. I highly recommend this product!

                    Works great
                    Works great, but I did have 1 wire come off and the generator wouldn't turn off with the switches. It was a easy fix. Power everything in my 29' camper including the AC.

                        Low noise and high power!
                        Product seems nice for what it is. Its our first generator for RV. It powers everything including the a/c with reserve power to spare. I love the digital display show how many hours are left on the fuel tank. The unit did arrive covered in oil. Im not sure here it leaked from as the manual says its shipped without oil and the included bottle was completely full and sealed. It was quite hard to clean as the manual also states not to get the unit wet. I blame this more on shipping than the manufacturer though. As far as the unit working as it should, so far I am pleased.
