Grouping portable generators into three wattage groups, the Westinghouse WH7500E is at the top of category three in popularity. Category three being the range of 7000 watts to 10000 watts. At 7500 running watts and 9000 starting watts, it is on the higher end of power for periodic home use. It has enough power capacity to power most of your essentials during a power outage and enough to actually hook into your home’s power supply via transfer switch, without wishing you had more power.
Add to this the electric start with included battery, 120V/240V power, an included wheel kit, and even an hour meter. At a reasonable price for the power and features, plus the name Westinghouse, and you have the reason for its popularity.
