Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc

In summary, the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers looking for even more independence
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • 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 iGen4000DFc in use

The Westinghouse iGen4000DFc

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc delivers 120V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 3,300W and a peak wattage of 4,000W. When propane-powered, it has 2,970 rated watts and 3,600 peak watts. Moreover, since it is parallel capable (parallel kit included), its power may be increased if linked to a second compatible unit.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). For additional convenience, the iGen4000DFc may also be remotely started (key fob included).

Regarding its running time, the iGen4000DFc, with a 1.66 gallon fuel capacity can operate for up to 7 hours with a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.24 GPH). When using propane, it can run for up to 17 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.28 GPH).

As the iGen4000DFc produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

It also sports 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

With its TT-30R receptacle (TT as in 'Travel Trailer'), this Westinghouse generator is RV Ready.

Portability

The Westinghouse iGen4000DFc is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L21.3 x W12.6 x H19.3 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

As the iGen4000DFc's weight is only 62.8 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Furthermore, once placed on the floor, effortless displacement is possible thanks to its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle.

Features

Panel of the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc

The iGen4000DFc's control panel

Monitoring of the iGen4000DFc's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours, voltage, power output and fuel level and is one of the features of its control panel. 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 overloaded, the generator is ready and its oil levels are insufficient.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

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.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc also is packed along with the following accessories: oil, tool kit, propane hose, battery charger, key fob and funnel.

Emissions

The Westinghouse iGen4000DFc 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 iGen4000DFc versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc weighs only 62.8 pounds, making it one of the lighter inverter generators in the 2500-3500 rated wattage category. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO with only 46 pounds.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 52 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the more quiet of the products of similar type and power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU3000iS, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 50 dBA.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing up to 7 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 25% load, the iGen4000DFc falls into the low end in comparison with other inverters of a comparable power output. 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.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. In fact, this inverter generator is not among the most fuel efficient, within the aforementioned wattage range : its estimated gasoline consumption at 25% load is around 0.24 GPH. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Energizer eZV3500P, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.13 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 2500-3500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Westinghouse iGen4000DFc 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.
