Keep Your Motor Running

EPA and CARB emissions certified, the WH7000EC delivers 7,000 running watts of power and a maximum starting output of 8,500 watts, making it ideal for items with higher power needs. Powered by a 420cc Westinghouse XP Series engine, the WH7000EC includes such features as an easy-access air filter element that allows for quick servicing, a comfort-grip recoil handle and compression release for easy starting, and an overhead valve design to ensure performance and durability. The contractor-proven engine is also built to last, with cast-iron cylinder sleeves, forged pistons and connecting rods, and a transistorized ignition. (Westinghouse also sells a model that's EPA compliant only, the WH7000E).

High-Performance Alternator

The WH7000EC's alternator is extremely efficient, with low-loss, high-efficiency laminations that increase electrical output and decrease fuel consumption. Westinghouse also added high-performance alternator varnish to guarantee superior heat-resistance, along with cast-iron fan guards to ensure safe operation. Best of all, the generator handles the toughest tasks without pause. The generator's maintenance-free brush excitation eliminates down time, while the automatic voltage regulation helps the generator accommodate more demanding applications.

Tough Control Panel

Portable generators need to handle tough conditions, which is why Westinghouse equipped the WH7000EC with an all-steel control panel with a full enclosure to protect it from debris and nasty weather. The panel enjoys additional corrosion-resistance thanks to the two-part primer and powder coat finish. Other features include a 1/4-turn Nema twist lock connector, a toggle mainline 240-volt circuit breaker for safety, two 120-volt pushbutton circuit breakers for overcurrent protection, and a three-position electric start.

Easy Operator Features

The WH7000EC is easy to use and transport. The generator includes an intuitive interface with color-coded touch points, along with ergonomically designed dual folding handles and never-flat tires. Whether the terrain is flat or wildly uneven, the WH7000EC rolls easily to the job site. Users will also appreciate the maintenance-free, sealed 12 Ahr battery, which delivers reliable electric starting.

Selecting the Right Generator

Portable generators can handle all sorts of tasks--from managing power outages to powering home appliances, power tools, electronics, and more. However, it's important to select the right generator for your needs. Start by determining the starting watts for the item you want to start. Why? Some devices draw additional power when starting, which you need to add to the power needs of the other items running at the same time.

I purchased the generator from Costco with a $200.00 rebate. Delivery was drop ship on time and in good condition. Assembly took a few minutes...the generator includes a small tool kit. After adding the oil and some gasoline, the generator started up on the first try with the electric start. I ran it for about 15 minutes...plugged in a couple of different loads with no problems. I shut down generator drained gas out and will store it until needed. Also, it's not as loud as some other gas generators. I reccommend this product.

This generator outpasses the Honda generator. Starts well, well made, looks durable and price is just right. The customer service is very helpful. I also bought a TV from their company which I have not had any problems so far. Would definitely recommend this product.

I just got it going today ran a worm saw and a te80. Works great, but loud plan to build a sound proof enclosure for it, and adding a vw muffler to quiet it down.

I got this from Costco online for 700 dollars and free delivery. Delivery was iffy...driver said he usually delivers small packages so he had no hand truck or lift on the van. This generator weighs 200 pounds so the two of us wrestled it to the ground and into my garage. From there on it was a breeze. Not a mark on it from shipping as it was really packed well. Easy to put on the wheels and handle..hooked up battery and filled with oil and some gas and hit the starter. First turn it started. I practiced with it a few days and then hooked it to the house via the transfer switch I had professionally installed. It ran anything and everything in the house and no engine dipping with added load...it just ran smooth as silk. It is a little noisy but no more than expected from a 420 cc engine. I can hardly wait for next power outage. I am now looking for a source for air filter and such to have on hand. I don't find them on Amazon.
