The WEN 56225i is made with a gasoline-powered WEN OHV 4-stroke engine that is 79.7 cc. It has a 120V output and a running power of 1,800W and a peak power of 2,250W. Also, because it can work in parallel (the WEN 56421 Parallel kit is not included), this power can be doubled by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The noise level of the inverter generator is 53 dBA, which is just a little louder than a quiet suburb. It has a simple pull-start mechanism. With a full tank, the 56225i can run for up to 9.4 hours on its 1 gallon of fuel (fuel consumption is approximately 0.11 GPH). The 56225i makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 1.2%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into its AC outlets.
The control panel has 2 AC outlets for the following: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).It also has 2 DC outlets and two 5V USB ports, which make it easy to charge devices like cell phones and tablets.
There are several lights that let you know when the generator is ready, when the oil level is too low, and when the generator is too busy.The inverter generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it easy to see at a glance how much gas is in the tank.The fuel shutoff feature stops the flow of fuel, which lets the 56225i use up the last of the fuel in the carburetor before turning off automatically.This helps prevent the buildup and blockages that can happen when fuel sits in the carburetor for too long.This makes the unit last longer and requires less maintenance.When it comes to safety, this product has an automatic low oil shut-off, an overload protection (circuit breaker), and an automatic low fuel shut-off, so you can use it with complete peace of mind.In addition to the features we’ve already talked about, the WEN 56225i comes with the usual paperwork and owner’s manual to get you started right away.
The WEN 56225i is an inverter generator that is 18 inches long, 11.5 inches wide, and 18.2 inches high.So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The goal of this modern design is to give recreational users the best way to get power.The 56225i is a portable generator that is light and weighs only 48.5 lbs.The power of the product can be used on the go, since it is easy for one person to move.Its case has a handle that makes it easy to carry.This makes it even more convenient.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the WEN-56225i compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
Nick Anton started WEN Products, an American power tool manufacturer and distributor, in 1951.WEN Products says that its research in random orbital technology contributed to the creation of current chainsaws, soldering tools, and wet sharpeners.The Illinois-based corporation increased the range of power tools that were available through its distribution network, including presses, drills, and of course, power generators.WEN is a distributor, and the majority of the products in its inventory are branded imports from Asian manufacturers.
The WEN 56225i has a warranty that lasts up to 2 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out WEN’s warranty policies to learn more about the warranty on their generators.You can also call their customer service line at 1-847-429-9263.
