As the WGen3600cv and the WGen3600c 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 WGen3600cv compare to the Westinghouse WGen3600c.

  • Power: As both the Westinghouse WGen3600cv and the Westinghouse WGen3600c share the same running wattage of 3,600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (4,650 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 14 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.29 gallon of gasoline per hour.
  • THD: Neither the Westinghouse WGen3600cv nor the Westinghouse WGen3600c has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (both <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: With dimensions of L23.3" x W17.5" x H18.7", the Westinghouse WGen3600cv offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Westinghouse WGen3600c and its L23.3" x W22.8" x H21.3".
  • Weight: With a weight of 100.6 lbs, the WGen3600cv is slightly less heavy than the WGen3600c (which weighs 106.1 lbs).
  • Portability: As the WGen3600c benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the WGen3600cv, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the WGen3600cv, the WGen3600c benefits from a folding handle, to help you get a better grip anytime you wish to move your portable generator.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The WGen3600cv and the WGen3600c both offer 4 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the WGen3600cv's and the WGen3600c's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
  • Technology: Both units benefit from a carbon monoxide monitoring technology.
