As the WGen3600DF and the WGen3600DFv 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 WGen3600DF compare to the Westinghouse WGen3600DFv.

  • 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 WGen3600DF and the Westinghouse WGen3600DFv 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 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 WGen3600DF nor the Westinghouse WGen3600DFv 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 L23.5" x W17.5" x H18.7", the Westinghouse WGen3600DFv offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Westinghouse WGen3600DF and its L23.3" x W22.8" x H21.3".
  • Weight: The WGen3600DFv and its 103.6 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 120 lbs of the WGen3600DF.
  • Portability: As the WGen3600DF benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the WGen3600DFv, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the WGen3600DFv, the WGen3600DF benefits from a folding handle, to help you get a better grip anytime you wish to move your portable generator.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: These two devices can both be reliably started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism. However, the Westinghouse WGen3600DF also benefits from a convenient electric starter. The Westinghouse WGen3600DF offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The WGen3600DF and the WGen3600DFv 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 WGen3600DF's and the WGen3600DFv's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Westinghouse WGen3600DFv allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Westinghouse WGen3600DF. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
