Can in run in the rain or does it need to be covered when running?

Asked by: graygo

Is this a brush type or brushless generator? Are the windings aluminum or copper? Is the THD rating assessed under full load?

Westinghouse WPro8500 Pro Series Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 323.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice. Best Generator I have ever bought. Received the WPro8500 today. I am not easily impressed with a piece of equipment that should be solid and should work. But this generator is well built, has great features like 5% TDH and comes with everything you need to get it started except gasoline. It is heavy but with the wheel kit and handle it is easily moved around. I put oil and gas in it and hit the start button and it fired right up. Westinghouse seems like they have their ducks in a row. It this thing lasts like it looks, I will never buy anything else. My last generator is 25 years old and still running, although not so well. I hope this machine lasts half as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for so much power After completing a recommended break-in of the engine, (found online), I plugged the generator into the service panel and it worked flawlessly powering the entire house, including the Central HVAC. The engine runs great, love the remote start, the power is stable and the sound is just about 74 db at 20 feet. The wheel is right under the 50 amp outlet and hampers plugging the big power cable in without putting tight bend in it. I had an extended axle made so the wheel can un-pin and slide away from the frame by 1¼" so the cable could hang normally. Otherwise this generator was well worth the money. Oh yes, shipping was very fast from Westinghouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Bought the generator for work to keep a meter station powered up during power outages but have not had to use it yet. Got it unpacked and ready to go within an hour. Love that it has the 50A- 240V plug on it so I may order one for my personal use for my RV. The box showed that it was going to have a 30A-120V & a 30A-240V plug so the 50A was a bonus. It did not have the 30A-120V plug but I didn't need that one anyways. Also love the remote & push button start features of it. i bought the battery charger for it and charged it up for about an hour, though it may not have needed it, and it fired right up. Frequency was staying right at 60 Hz, which is need for my application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wpro8500 Unboxed, put together and put right to use. Have an extra quart of oil! It comes with 1qt, but takes 1.6. Wheels are a little cheap but get the job done, probably won’t hold up too well on a job site but fine for rolling in and out of the garage. Comes with a 120/240V 30 A and 50 A plug. The 50 A replaces the 120V AC 30A, this is not shown in the manual or product description (see attached picture of panel). Seems to do pretty well on fuel, idle down feature and remote start are good features. Comes with a charger to keep battery maintained when not in use. So far so good, ran my whole house after loosing power post storm Isaias.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice generator, but not quite what I expected This WPro8500 is well built except the wheels could be more stout. It arrived very quickly, assembled very easily and started right up. At this point I noticed that this unit did not have an L5-30R receptacle as is shown in the photos and in the manual. This one has an L14-30R and 14-50R. Not sure why this is. Guess I won't be using it for RV plug in. All in all it still seems like a great unit. I do like that the manual indicates that the battery does get charged as the generator runs in addition to the plug in trickle charger that is supplied with the unit. That way the battery will not go dead as the unit runs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer Received generator in excellent condition. Set-up was easy. Conected Battery, put on wheels and filled with supplied oil. Started unit and powered saw. Noticed RPM drop when no load applied verifying the auto idle control worked. One of the bolts for the battery terminal was defective (it was stripped in the middle of the bolt and would not tighten. Had to use a washer to enable tightning. I do not have a manual transfer switch yet so did not operate at rated KW. This is my 1st generator so I can not compare to other units but I thought it was very quite. Much quiter than my lawn tractor or lawn mower. I am expecting excellent performance over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality and Performance I took my time and did a lot of research and was not only interested the quantity of power but also the quality of power! This generator even when fully loaded has a very stable 60 hertz line frequency and puts out a very clean sine wave verified with my oscilloscope and a stand alone frequency counter. THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) was measured at less than 3 percent on my unit, protecting my HDTV's, computers and other sensitive electronics. Love the 50 amp plug, making it very easy to connect to my transfer switch to back up my selected house circuits with amperage to spare! Thank you Westinghouse for a great generator!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and maintain I had done months of research to find the best generator for what I needed and with the features I wanted. This generator has ALL of what I wanted and needed. It was easy setup and self explanatory. This generator runs easily 12 hours for the load I have on it. The quality of the generator is, in my opinion, top notch. It looks great, easy to use, and easy to maintain. I have already recommended this generator to a few other people. I do use this alot and many people have asked me about it and I tell them everything, from how clean the electricity is to the length or run time on the tank and remote start and ease of maintenance. I WILL be buying another if the need arises.
