As the WGen5300DFv and the WGen5300DF 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 WGen5300DFv compare to the Westinghouse WGen5300DF.

  • Fuel: The 2 portable generators enjoy a dual-fuel technology, which allows them to run either on gasoline or propane, providing additional versatility and convenience.
  • Power: As both the Westinghouse WGen5300DFv and the Westinghouse WGen5300DF share the same running wattage of 5300W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. However, compared to the 6500 starting watts of the WGen5300DFv, the WGen5300DF and its starting wattage of 6600 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: At a 50% load, these 2 portable generators benefit from the same approximate runtime on a full tank. Therefore, regardless of the model, you'll be able to enjoy power availability for around 13.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Keeping the aforementioned load in mind (i.e. 50%), these 2 generators will burn approximately 0.35 gallon of gasoline every hour.
  • THD: Neither the Westinghouse WGen5300DFv nor the Westinghouse WGen5300DF has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (respectively <23% and <23%).
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 68 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 134.5 lbs, the WGen5300DFv is slightly less heavy than the WGen5300DF (which weighs 147 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their maneuverability. 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 WGen5300DF has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter. The Westinghouse WGen5300DF offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The WGen5300DFv and the WGen5300DF 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 WGen5300DFv's and the WGen5300DF's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Westinghouse WGen5300DFv offers a better insight into its power production than the Westinghouse WGen5300DF, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
