Produces plenty of power

Pros: came via drop shipping as scheduled without damage. Easy to unbox and assemble. Remote start works great and is very convenient. Produces plenty of power and doesn’t bog down with high surge loads. Gas shutoff is easy to access. Included instructions were clear on how to convert the generator to a floating neutral (most homes with a transfer switch). Cons: Heavy (but not bad to move with the wheels). Loud (but tolerable compared to other open frame generators in this range) Bottom line- Affordable and powerful this is the best of its class. Consumer reports rates it well and I agree with them.

Checks all the boxes 9500/12500

This generator checks all the boxes. I was looking for a generator big enough to run my air conditioning, well pump, fans and lights. I found it. At first it was having trouble starting my air conditioner, but I had my hvac guy install a “hard start” on my ac and it starts it without fail now. It’s a 3&1/2 ton unit. Based on the electrical load my electrician said I was running it at about 75% of its capacity. Running time on it’s 6.6 gallon tank are different on the Amazon description and the manufacturer owners manual. One says 17 hours and the other says 14 hours on a single tank. I believe you could get 14 hours on a 50% load, but running mine at 75% load I got 9 hours and 45 minutes on a single tank. So you’re looking at about 16.25 gallons to run it for 24 hours at 75% load. I’m a bit of a pepper so I like to have enough fuel on hand to run my house off the grid for at least a whole week. This requires me to keep about 115 gallons of fuel on hand which I buy at the beginning of summer and after hurricane season I just use it up in our cars. Bigger 12k/15k generators will consume about 1 gallon per hour at 50% load. At 75% load this 9500/12500 generator uses about (.67) gallon per hour. Also worth mentioning, larger generators don’t offer a backup pull start. They are electric start only. Although this generator has a lot of bells and whistles, it still maintains basic generator functions such as a pull start and manual choke. Simple drain and fill oil changes without oil filters. Bigger generators have automotive style oil filters and electric only choke. You will never worry about losing power again. Also worth noting....to wire this to the house utilizing the 50 amp plug I went directly to an RV center to get it. A 50’ chord was about $225 but well worth it for a long durable chord. Big box hardware stores won’t carry the gauge wire you need to make a long chord. Hope this review helps.

Comparable to the Honda 2000 ( I had both )

Better than the Honda in that: 1) quite a bit higher wattage, yet the same weight and size, and even a lower price. That extra wattage means the unit is not strained as much when on a higher load. Also, I needed it to get the higher heats on my welder, and also to run the roof air conditioner on my motorhome. 2)Also it has a digital display showing watts, fuel level, and est of time remaining on fuel. However, my copy has a slight miss on low loads, which is helped by setting it a bit to choke, so it is likely merely a bit of guff caught in the fuel jet. Also, the gas guage is accurate when full (3.8l), but only drops to 1.9l, and runs out reading that. I've used it steadily for one year and it's going good. I just barely gave it 5 stars. My problems are minor compared to the important qualities.

Extremely fuel efficient, powerful and quiet inverter generator...

After several weeks researching inverter generators suiting my requirements and budget, I finally purchased the iGen2500 over the Honda EU2000i. Decision was based on iGen2500 being more powerful, more features, brand name and same 3 year warranty at half the price. I've being using it for 4 weeks as home backup power after hurricane Maria struck PR leaving the Island off the power grid. In average, I use it daily for 12 hours powering a refrigerator, 1-55" LED TV, 1-40" LCD TV, 1-Blu-ray DVD, 8-16Watt Lamps, 2-big fans, 1 800W Expresso coffee brewer running 6 mins. cycle in the morning, charging my cel. phones, tablets and laptop and washing 2 laundry loads per week. Generator is very quiet and fuel efficient giving an average of 12 hours per 1 gallon of gas in Eco mode. Extremely satisfied with it's performance and purchased price of $549.99.

I'd buy this again in a heartbeat - great generator, great customer service

Amazing generator with great customer service. I purchased this generator in response to the "Bomb Cyclone" which was to be followed by several days of -6 degree temps. If the worst happened, I would have to drain the house pipes and hope that was enough to keep damage from the house. This generator would not have arrived within the two days that would have handled that emergency, but it did arrive 10 days later. Free delivery via freight (thank you Prime, that just paid for the year). We didn't lose power. I received the generator and made provisions for it to power emergency service in the house, and found a natural gas adapter kit (which I have not yet installed and which per Westinghouse voids the warrantee). I did break the generator trickle charge adapter - I called Westinghouse and despite this being entirely my fault, they shipped me a replacement immediately for no charge. It's been quite a while since a company stood behind its products to that degree or any degree at all. The documentation is excellent - it defines exactly where to shift the bonded neutral to a floating neutral - and if you don't fully understand that, before you do anything with the generator and connecting it to your house, call an electrician (I am an electrician). This generator would be far safer with a grounding rod connection if you are running it all by its lonesome, but if you connect to your house panel you need to understand the grounding or you could kill yourself or a utility lineman. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.
