  1. 5 out of 5


    This is my first generator and I am blown away. This generator fired right up and powered my well pump, fridge, receptacles, and lights with ease. I hooked it up via transfer switch.

    I love this thing! Starting it only takes a second and it runs all night. Best few hundred I’ve ever spent. Thanks, Westinghouse!
