As the iGen4500 and the iGen4500DF 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 iGen4500 compare to the Westinghouse iGen4500DF.

  • Fuel: The Westinghouse iGen4500DF is a dual fuel generator. Thus, it has the advantage of being able to run either on gasoline or propane, whereas the other generator only runs on gasoline.
  • Power: As both the Westinghouse iGen4500 and the Westinghouse iGen4500DF share the same running wattage of 3700W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (4500 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 18 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.19 gallon of gasoline per hour. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Westinghouse iGen4500 and <3% for the Westinghouse iGen4500DF) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 52 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 98 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 telecospic handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter. Both have the additional ability to be handily remotely started.
  • Outlets: The iGen4500 and the iGen4500DF both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the iGen4500's and the iGen4500DF'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, for each product, the data center provides a digital fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
