As the Honda EU3000iS and the Westinghouse iGen4500 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Westinghouse iGen4500 compare to the Honda EU3000iS.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3700 W, the Westinghouse iGen4500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 2800 running watts of the Honda EU3000iS. Moreover, compared to the 3000 starting watts of the Honda EU3000iS, the Westinghouse iGen4500 and its starting wattage of 4500 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Honda EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Westinghouse iGen4500: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the Westinghouse iGen4500 offers a maximum runtime of 18 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.17 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EU3000iS is more fuel efficient than the Westinghouse iGen4500 and its 0.19 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. 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 Honda EU3000iS) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 50 dBA, the noise emitted by the Honda EU3000iS is slightly lower than the 52 dBA of the Westinghouse iGen4500. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Westinghouse iGen4500 and its dimensions of L24.5" x W17.5" x H20.5" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L25.9" x W17.6" x H22" of the Honda EU3000iS.
  • Weight: Weighing 98 lbs, the iGen4500 is much lighter than the 131 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: As the Westinghouse iGen4500 benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the Honda EU3000iS, because the latter doesn't have one. The Westinghouse iGen4500 has a telecospic handle and the Honda EU3000iS a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter. The Westinghouse iGen4500 offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The Westinghouse iGen4500 and the Honda EU3000iS both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the Westinghouse iGen4500 does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Westinghouse iGen4500's and the Honda EU3000iS's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Westinghouse iGen4500 offers a better insight into its power production than the Honda EU3000iS, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, these 2 products are equipped with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance. For the iGen4500, this fuel gauge is digital and part of the data center.
