Great little generator. When I received it, it came with everything I would need, including a Phillips head screw driver to take off the side panel to get to the oil, also a small funnel and a long plastic tube to make putting oil in it effortless. I added the oil (the oil cap had a dip stick attach...
Pro: has fuel guage, quiet Con: changing oil could be less messy
upon delivery gassed up installed oil started second pull very east to start gas guage a plus weight isint to bad at about 50 ibs more than enough wattage for campind and best is quiet so no problems with fellow campers
Wanted a generator for the club I am a member of. They have a ridiculously stringent policy on generators, 65 decibels at 17 feet. I was told by many members and the clubs board members, that the only generators that ever passed the test were Honda, and Yamaha. So when I showed up for the testing...
The best thing is the one pull start after you have run this the first time. The first time took three pulls obviously because there was no gas in the generator when it was new, but after that, one pull and she starts right up. Quiet, compact, great unit. I've ordered a second one with the parallel...
I bought this for a week long dispersed camping trip in Wyoming where I would have no power. It worked like a champ! It was as quiet as other campers Honda and Yamaha. It starts on first pull. Eco mode is nice. Very happy with this unit.
Nice generator, easy to use, fairly light and quite.
Very quiet and efficient. Runs my camper lights no problem with maximum loads.
Quiet, could not tell the difference in noise level from the Honda. Starts on first pull, great generator for half the price of a Honda.I did not like the location of the oil filler/dipstick. It was difficult to fill with oil and to check oil level, otherwise a good deal.
this generator is not quiet, end of story.
Wen's Super Quiet wonder! I have lived in Florida most of my life. When a hurricane hits, my house is the first to lose power and the last to have it restored. Its essential to have a generator during these outages for obvious reasons. Over the years I've owned several generators... none as quiet or...
Very quiet on eco mode, and will run over 12 hrs on 1.2 gallons on ethanol gas. Super easy to use.
Quite, under 50#'s, does what I need it to do!
I might have given this generator another star except I haven't used it for long enough to give it a chance to really work. It was easy to set up with help and started right up using the electric start. After putting just a splash of gas in it and letting it run dry, I put a couple of cups in it a...
Super Quiet! Plenty of power! I purchased two of these generators along with a parallel cable kit (ordered from WEN directly) to operate a 50amp RV. They did excellent, were easy on fuel, and never ran more than 50% operating capacity. Easy to start and operate.
Questions & Answers
What is the amp output? 20 amp, 30 amp, 50 amp???
13.3A is the Rated Amperage, that's what the manufacture states.
Power 1600watts / Voltage 120volts = Current 13.3amps
1600 watts which is about 15 amps
1800 Watts divided by 120 Volts equals 15 amps.
Will this Wen operate a pellet stove?
Yes it will. As long as the wattage of your pellet stove blower motors, and auger motor don't exceed 1000 watts. In any event, it powers my pellet stove perfectly, and is safe for the stove's electronics, because of the inverter technology.
No reason why it won't. The stove has a small auger to feed the pellets. Very little power draw.
Will this power an electric pressure washer?
You should have plenty of power for a pressure washer. Most pressure washers run around 12-15 amps depending on the psi rating, and this generator can give you 30+ amps at 110 volts.
Easily, 3800 watts surge, about 30 amps. I am pretty sure your electric pressure will not pull more than 20 amps maximum even with startup surge. I bought mine for the RV (Fifth Wheel) and absolutely love it. You will be well served with this generator. WEN has been around since the fifties (1954). This is not harbor freight quality, this is a top shelf generator at an excellent price point. Good Luck
