The Westinghouse WGen3600v has a 212 cc (5.9 hp) Westinghouse OHV 4-stroke engine that gives off 120V, runs on gasoline, and puts out 3,600W while running and 4,650W at its peak. The generator has a noise level of 68 dBA, which is less than an office. It is started with a pull-start mechanism. With a full tank, the WGen3600v can run for up to 14 hours, thanks to its 4 gallon fuel tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.29 GPH). Since the WGen3600v has a THD of about 23%, it shouldn’t be used to power electronics that are sensitive to noise.
On the control panel, there are 4 AC outlets for: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R); 120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle; 120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle.This Westinghouse generator is ready for an RV because it has a TT-30R (which stands for “Travel Trailer”) plug.
A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.When it comes to safety, this product has an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worry.The Westinghouse WGen3600v comes with a tool kit, oil, and a funnel, as well as the usual documentation and an owner’s manual to get you up and running quickly.You can also buy a storage cover that is made by the company.
The Westinghouse WGen3600v is 23.3 inches long, 17.5 inches wide, and 18.7 inches high.Together with its traditional, open-frame design, they support the generator and allow it to be raised above the ground.This type of design is great for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.With a dry weight of 99.5 lbs, the WGen3600v’s power can be used anywhere.The generator is also easier to move because it has an open frame, which makes it easy to grab and move.You could also buy the official wheel kit if you want to move the WGen3600v more easily.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Westinghouse-WGen3600v 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
The Westinghouse Electric Corporation was established in 1886, and its heritage business, Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment, is situated in the US.The Westinghouse name continues to be the brand name for many of its electrical solutions, which range throughout the scale from power plants to portable generators, despite the fact that the firm has been acquired and integrated into the American CBS.The primary product of Westinghouse’s Outdoor Power Equipment division, portable generators were previously produced by Westpro Power Systems, which Midwest Equipment acquired in 2016.Under the Westinghouse brand, lawn tools including trimmers and blowers are also offered for sale.Their entire line of items is American-designed.However, according to a number of sites, they are frequently made in China.
There is a warranty on the Westinghouse WGen3600v for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out Westinghouse’s warranty policies if you want to know more about the warranty on Westinghouse generators.You can also call their customer service line at 1-855-944-3571.
