Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse iGen4000c

In a nutshell, the Westinghouse iGen4000c is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Westinghouse iGen4000c in use

The Westinghouse iGen4000c

The Westinghouse iGen4000c houses a 141 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 3,300W along with a peak wattage of 4,000W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (parallel kit included), this power can be increased when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home), the inverter generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). For additional convenience, the iGen4000c may also be remotely started (key fob included).

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 1.66 gallon, the iGen4000c can operate for up to 7 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.24 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the iGen4000c generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

This Westinghouse generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

The Westinghouse iGen4000c's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L21.3 x W12.6 x H19.3 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The iGen4000c can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 61.7 lbs. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle will allow you to shift it without effort.

Features

Panel of the Westinghouse iGen4000c

The iGen4000c's control panel

To help you monitor the iGen4000c's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the voltage, power output, lifetime run hours and fuel level. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

In addition to this info, some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is on overload, the generator is ready and its oil levels are insufficient.

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

It also includes a carbon monoxide sensor. This sensor is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Westinghouse iGen4000c's package also includes these accessories: oil, funnel, battery charger, key fob and tool kit.

Emissions

The Westinghouse iGen4000c is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, making it usable in forested areas.

The Westinghouse iGen4000c versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse iGen4000c compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Westinghouse iGen4000c weighs only 61.7 pounds, making it one of the lighter inverter generators in the 2500-3500 rated wattage category. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, standing at just 46 lbs.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 52 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU3000iS with only 50 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the iGen4000c, with an autonomy of up to 7 hours at a 25% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Champion 200914, reaching up to 22 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator is somewhat less fuel efficient than devices of comparable output: its estimated fuel consumption reaches 0.24 GPH at a 25% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.13 GPH, the Energizer eZV3500P is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Westinghouse iGen4000c is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

About Westinghouse

The US based Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment is a legacy subsidiary of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation, founded in 1886. While the company has been acquired and merged into the American CBS, the Westinghouse name remains as the brand name for many of their electrical solutions, which stretch across the scale from power plants to portable generators. Portable generators – the main product of the Outdoor Power Equipment branch of Westinghouse – used to be manufactured by Westpro Power Systems, which was bought in 2016 by Midwest Equipment. Lawn equipment, such as trimmers and blowers, is also sold under the Westinghouse brand name. All of their products are designed in the US. However, they are in many cases manufactured in China.

Warranty Information

The Westinghouse iGen4000c is covered under a warranty for up to 3 years. This warranty may be limited and may not cover all parts of the generator.
