As the Predator 3500 and the WEN 56380i 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 WEN 56380i compare to the Predator 3500.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3400 W, the WEN 56380i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 3000 running watts of the Predator 3500. Moreover, compared to the 3500 starting watts of the Predator 3500, the WEN 56380i and its starting wattage of 3800 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<1.2% for the WEN 56380i and <5% for the Predator 3500) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 57 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will 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: Considering that both devices weigh 99.2 lbs, neither of them will require more effort to be manually lifted and transported.
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. The WEN 56380i has a folding handle and the Predator 3500 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.
  • Outlets: The WEN 56380i and the Predator 3500 both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the WEN 56380i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the WEN 56380i's and the Predator 3500'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, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56380i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
