As the 56225i and the 56200i are both WEN 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 WEN 56225i compare to the WEN 56200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1800 W, the WEN 56225i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the WEN 56200i. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the 56200i, the 56225i and its starting wattage of 2250 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: At a 50% load, these 2 portable generators benefit from the same approximate runtime on a full tank. Therefore, regardless of the model, you'll be able to enjoy power availability for around 6 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Keeping the aforementioned load in mind (i.e. 50%), these 2 generators will burn approximately 0.17 gallon of gasoline every hour. 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 56225i and <1.2% for the WEN 56200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 50 dBA, the 56200i allows for a quieter operation than the 53 dBA of the 56225i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

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 48.5 lbs, the 56225i 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 56225i and the 56200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the 56225i's and the 56200i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN 56225i benefits from a fuel shutoff feature, which turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down. This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the unit’s lifespan.
