As the WGen3600 and the WGen3600v 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 WGen3600 compare to the Westinghouse WGen3600v.

  • Power: As both the Westinghouse WGen3600 and the Westinghouse WGen3600v share the same running wattage of 3600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (4650 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 0.22 gallon of gasoline per hour.
  • THD: Neither the Westinghouse WGen3600 nor the Westinghouse WGen3600v 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 69 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L23.5" x W17.5" x H18.7", the Westinghouse WGen3600v offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Westinghouse WGen3600 and its L24" x W23" x H21.5".
  • Weight: With a weight of 99 lbs, the WGen3600v is slightly less heavy than the WGen3600 (which weighs 107 lbs).
  • Portability: As the WGen3600 benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the WGen3600v, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the WGen3600v, the WGen3600 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 WGen3600 and the WGen3600v 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 WGen3600's and the WGen3600v's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
