Description

Zoom on the WEN DF475T

In short, the WEN DF475T is a compact portable generator adequately designed for:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

The WEN DF475T in use

The WEN DF475T

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile WEN DF475T provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 3,800W along with a peak wattage of 4,750W. While propane-powered, it provides 3,500 rated watts and 4,350 starting watts.

The generator, rated for a noise of 69 dBA (less noisy than a normal conversation), provides flexibility in starting, offering both a conventional pull-start mechanism and a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included).

The running time of the DF475T, with its 4 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 11 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.36 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 7 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.67 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle enabling simple battery charging for added ease.

Since it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the DF475T is tailored to be transfer switch ready, making it easy to connect it to your breaker box for home power support during outages.

Portability

At L23.2 x W17.5 x H18.5 in, the traditional open frame structure of the WEN DF475T ensures stability while facilitating convenient maintenance access to components and promoting air cooling. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Despite its weight of 105.8 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. Despite the restricted maneuverability, its wheel kit and its folding handle provides a solution, allowing for convenient shifting once the generator is positioned on the ground.

Features

The DF475T's control panel

Thanks to its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently, and easily check the gas level at a glance.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Alongside the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) for quick setup, the WEN DF475T is bundled with additional accessories: propane hose and oil. An official storage cover is also available, as a separate purchase.

The WEN DF475T versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the WEN DF475T compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 105.8 pounds, the WEN DF475T finds itself in the expected weight range for dual fuel generators able to produce between 3500 and 4500 rated watts. If weight is an important consideration for you, the WEN DF402iX stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 66.1 pounds.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this generator with a lowest noise of 69 dBA can be judged as noisy. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, whose lowest noise levels reach just 52 dBA.
  • With around 11 hours of runtime at a 50% load on a full tank, the DF475T is in line with the average autonomy range for dual fuel generators of comparable power. If extended autonomy is what matters most to you, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF could be an excellent choice, offering one of the longest run times among units in its power category, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. Standing at an estimated 0.36 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, this generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Westinghouse iGen4500DF. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.23 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W dual fuel generators, the WEN DF475T is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
