With its powerful and flexible dual-fuel technology, the Westinghouse WH10000DF can put out either 120V or 240V. Even though it runs on gasoline, it has a running wattage of 8,000W and a maximum wattage of 10,000W. It runs on propane and has a rated power of 7200 watts and a starting power of 9000 watts. The generator can make up to 72 dBA of noise (Slightly louder than a shower). It has both a traditional pull-start mechanism and a simple but elegant electric starter (battery included). With a fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons, the WH10000DF can run for up to 16 hours on gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.6 GPH). If you use propane instead, it can run for up to 8 hours (estimated based on a 20-lb tank, which uses about 0.59 GPH). The WH10000DF can’t be used to power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (23%).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are among the 5 AC outlets on the control panel.The WH10000DF is ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.You can connect it to a breaker box to power your home when the power goes out.
The WH10000DF’s control center has a handy meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours to help you keep track of its activity and status.A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.From a safety point of view, the product has a circuit breaker for overload protection and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The Westinghouse WH10000DF comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which tells you how to start it right away.It also comes with oil, a funnel, a battery charger, a tool kit, and a propane hose.
The Westinghouse WH10000DF is 27.2 inches long, 26.1 inches wide, and 26 inches high.Together with its traditional, open-frame design, they support the generator and allow it to be raised above the ground.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.The generator weighs 207 pounds, so it may be hard to move or transport it by hand, even though it is technically a “portable” generator (movable).But its wheel kit (dia:10) makes up for the fact that it is hard to move around “) and a folding handle that makes it easy to move once it’s on the ground.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Westinghouse-WH10000DF 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 WH10000DF 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.
