As the 56200i and the 56235i 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 56200i compare to the WEN 56235i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1900 W, the WEN 56235i 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 56235i and its starting wattage of 2350 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the 56200i enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the 56235i. It can deliver power for around 6 hours, whereas the 56235i 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 56235i 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 (<1.2% for the WEN 56200i and <1.2% for the WEN 56235i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 50 dBA, the noise emitted by the 56200i is slightly lower than the 51 dBA of the 56235i. 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: The 56235i and its 39 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 50 lbs of the 56200i.
  • 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 56200i and the 56235i 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 56200i's and the 56235i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56200i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN 56235i 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.
