As the WGen5300v and the WGen5300s are both Westinghouse generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Westinghouse WGen5300v compare to the Westinghouse WGen5300s.

  • Power: As both the Westinghouse WGen5300v and the Westinghouse WGen5300s share the same running wattage of 5300W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (6600 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: At a 25% load, these 2 portable generators offer the same runtime on a full tank. Each of them will be able to deliver power for up to 20 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.24 gallon of gasoline per hour.
  • THD: Neither the Westinghouse WGen5300v nor the Westinghouse WGen5300s has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (respectively <23% and <23%).

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: Considering that both devices weigh 107 lbs, neither of them will require more effort to be manually lifted and transported.
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Westinghouse WGen5300s has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The WGen5300v and the WGen5300s both offer 4 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the WGen5300v's and the WGen5300s's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
