Predator 3500 vs WEN GN400i - The Differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the WEN GN400i and the Predator 3500.

But before checking out explanations regarding their power, portability, and features, here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 generators:

As the Predator 3500 and the WEN GN400i do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the WEN GN400i compare to the Predator 3500.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3500 W, the WEN GN400i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 3000 running watts of the Predator 3500. Moreover, compared to the 3500 starting watts of the Predator 3500, the WEN GN400i and its starting wattage of 4000 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<1.2% for the WEN GN400i and <5% for the Predator 3500) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the Predator 3500 produces as low as 57 dBA, but the WEN GN400i is rated for a minimum dBA of 67.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.8" x W13.8" x H18.9", the WEN GN400i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Predator 3500 and its L22.8" x W17.3" x H20".
  • Weight: Weighing 66.1 lbs, the GN400i is much lighter than the 99.2 lbs of the 3500.
  • Portability: As the Predator 3500 benefits from a built-in set of wheels, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the WEN GN400i, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the WEN GN400i, the Predator 3500 benefits from a double handle, to help you get a better grip anytime you wish to move your portable generator.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Predator 3500 has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The WEN GN400i and the Predator 3500 both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the WEN GN400i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the WEN GN400i's and the Predator 3500's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Predator 3500 allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the WEN GN400i. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN GN400i benefits from a fuel shutoff feature, which turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down. This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the unit’s lifespan.
