As the WGen5300DFcv and the WGen5300DFc 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 WGen5300DFcv compare to the Westinghouse WGen5300DFc.

  • 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 WGen5300DFcv and the Westinghouse WGen5300DFc 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 WGen5300DFcv, the WGen5300DFc 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 11 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Keeping the aforementioned load in mind (i.e. 50%), these 2 generators will burn approximately 0.43 gallon of gasoline every hour.
  • THD: Neither the Westinghouse WGen5300DFcv nor the Westinghouse WGen5300DFc 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: 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 135.6 lbs, neither of them will require more effort to be manually lifted and transported.
  • Portability: As the WGen5300DFcv benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the WGen5300DFc, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the WGen5300DFc, the WGen5300DFcv benefits from a folding 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 Westinghouse WGen5300DFc has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter. The Westinghouse WGen5300DFc offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The WGen5300DFcv and the WGen5300DFc 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 WGen5300DFcv's and the WGen5300DFc'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.
