The Westinghouse WH7500E portable generator is a good generator that provides you with portable power for a wide variety of uses. This gas powered generator is probably best used as a backup power source due to power outages, but can also serve as a power source for non-emergency situations. It’s great for camping or outdoor projects when you need electricity but aren’t in the vicinity of a main power source. The WH7500E is non-CARB compliant (it can’t be used inside the state of California) but offers a lot of the great features of pricy generators minus the high cost.
The WH7500E is fully gas-powered and provides you with 7,500 continuous running watts of power (9,000 watts maximum starting output power). It has a “one-touch” starting system which makes startups simple and hassle-free. It also features a LCD meter that monitors the cumulative time use of the machine. The WH7500E generator also features the “Pulse-Flo” muffler (by Westinghouse), specially designed to reduce noise. The unit comes equipped with four standard power outlets and an easy to use control center. Colorized touch points make this unit even easier to use. Dual folding handles along with the very durable tires (“never flat”) also make moving the unit very easy and safe. It also features a cast iron fan guard for added safety while the engine is running. The WH7500E also gives you great control over voltage thanks to its automatic voltage regulation feature. The WH7500E is constructed entirely of steel and therefore is extremely durable regardless of the climate; and the unit’s electrical connections are fully-enclosed. The unit has two 120 volt push-button style circuit breakers, along with a single mainline 240 volt circuit breaker for safe operation.
The WH7500E features an excellent overhead valve system and derives its power via the rugged Westinghouse XP Series 420cc motor. The unit’s design also includes cast iron cylinder sleeves, forged pistons and connecting rods. This combination gives you a strong durable machine with low oil consumption. The WH7500E’s electric start features three positions for ease of use, along with a specially designed “Comfort Grip” handle for manual recoil. Overall, it’s a very efficient generator with a 6½ gallon fuel tank and is capable of providing you with 13 hours of operation (at 50 percent power).
