As the WGen9500 and the WPro8500 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 WGen9500 compare to the Westinghouse WPro8500.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 9500 W, the Westinghouse WGen9500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 8500 running watts of the Westinghouse WPro8500. Moreover, compared to the 11500 starting watts of the WPro8500, the WGen9500 and its starting wattage of 12500 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • 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 17.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.38 gallon of gasoline per hour.
  • THD: The Westinghouse WPro8500 with its low THD (<5%) is the only of these 2 generators that allows you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (the Westinghouse WGen9500 has a THD <23%, which is too high for electronic products).
  • Noise: With 73 dBA, the noise emitted by the WGen9500 is slightly lower than the 74 dBA of the WPro8500. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still 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: With a weight of 216 lbs, the WPro8500 is slightly less heavy than the WGen9500 (which weighs 220 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.
  • Lifting Hook: Thanks to a lifting hook on the top of its frame, the Westinghouse WPro8500 offers an easy way to safely load and unload it on the back of a pick-up truck.

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 WGen9500 and the WPro8500 both offer 6 AC outlets. They also both feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. 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 WGen9500's and the WPro8500'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, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
