As the WEN 56200i and the Generac iQ2000 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 Generac iQ2000 compare to the WEN 56200i.

  • Power: As both the Generac iQ2000 and the WEN 56200i share the same running wattage of 1600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the WEN 56200i enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the Generac iQ2000. It can deliver power for around 6 hours, whereas the Generac iQ2000 will be able to power your appliances for around 5.7 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.19 GPH (gallon per hour), the Generac iQ2000 is less fuel efficient than the WEN 56200i with its 0.17 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Generac iQ2000 and <1.2% for the WEN 56200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the WEN 56200i and its dimensions of L18" x W11" x H18" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L20" x W12.6" x H16.9" of the Generac iQ2000.
  • Weight: With a weight of 46.5 lbs, the iQ2000 is slightly less heavy than the 56200i (which weighs 50 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Generac iQ2000 and the WEN 56200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Generac iQ2000's and the WEN 56200i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Generac iQ2000 offers a better insight into its power production than the WEN 56200i, 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 iQ2000, this fuel gauge is digital and part of the data center.
