The Westinghouse WGen7500DF’s dual-fuel technology lets it put out 120/240V and gives it a lot of power and flexibility. If it is powered by gasoline, the device has a running power of 7,500W and a starting power of 9,500W. If it runs on propane, it has a rated power of 6750 watts and a starting power of 8550 watts. The noise level of this generator is 72 dBA, which is just a little louder than a vacuum cleaner. It can be started with a pull-start or an easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). To make things even easier, the WGen7500DF can be turned on from a distance (key fob included). With a fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons, the WGen7500DF can run for up to 16 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.6 GPH). It can last up to 11 hours if you use propane (on a 20 lbs tank – propane consumption around 0.43 GPH). The WGen7500DF can’t power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (about 23%).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplex outlets and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are on the control panel.It also has 2 DC outlets: there are two 5V USB ports that make it easy to charge devices like cell phones or tablets.The WGen7500DF has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, which means it is ready for a transfer switch.It can power your home during a power outage because it is easy to connect to your breaker box.
The WGen7500DF’s control panel has a handy meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This makes it easy to keep track of its status and activity.The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas is in it.In terms of safety, the generator can be used without worry because it has an automatic shut-off for low oil and an overload protection (circuit breaker).The Westinghouse WGen7500DF comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which lets you start it right away.It also comes with a tool kit, oil, key fob, battery charger, funnel, and propane hose.You can also buy a storage cover that is made by the company.
The Westinghouse WGen7500DF has a standard, open frame that measures L27.2 x W26.1 x H26 in, This frame gives it support and lets it be lifted off the ground.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.The generator is technically “portable” in the sense that it can be moved, but at 201 pounds, it may be hard to move it by hand.Still, its wheel kit (dia:10 “) and its handle that folds up, once it’s on the ground.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Westinghouse-WGen7500DF 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 WGen7500DF 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.
