Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv

In a few words, the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator perfectly suited for:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

The Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv in use

The Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv

Delivering 120V, the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv is enhanced by dual-fuel technology, providing power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it boasts a running wattage of 3,900W and a starting wattage of 5,000W. Alternatively, when propane-powered, it delivers 3,500 running watts and 4,500 starting watts. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel cord (opens in a new tab) not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator features a manual recoil starter system.

Concerning its running time, the iGen5000DFcv, featuring a 3.4 gallons fuel tank, can continuously run for up to 18 hours with a full gasoline tank (consuming fuel at approximately 0.19 gallons per hour). Alternatively, when utilizing propane, it offers up to 22 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.21 GPH) of runtime.

The iGen5000DFcv generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 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) providing convenient charging capabilities for mobile phones, tablets, and other electronic devices.

Thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer'), this Westinghouse generator is RV Ready.

Portability

With its enclosed inverter generator design (L24.5 x W17.5 x H20 in), the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv offers superior aesthetics and operates with minimized noise levels, distinguishing itself from standard, open frame generators. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Since the generator weighs 100.3 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). However, the constrained maneuverability is addressed with the assistance of its set of 2 wheels (⌀5.5") and its telecospic handle, allowing for easy shifting once the generator is placed on the ground.

Features

The iGen5000DFcv's control panel

Enhancing monitoring capabilities, the iGen5000DFcv features a digital data center within its control panel, furnishing essential details on the remaining run time, lifetime run hours, voltage, fuel level and power output for tracking activity and status.

In addition to this info, the device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the generator is overloaded, the oil level is too low and the generator is ready.

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

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.

Beyond the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to assist with setup, the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv ships with supplementary accessories: oil, funnel, propane hose and tool kit. An official running cover and a suitable storage cover are also available, as separate purchases.

The Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 100.3 lbs, the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv belongs in the expected weight range for inverter generators which produce 3500 to 4500 rated watts. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC, with a dry weight of only 58.4 lbs.
  • With a noise rating as low as 52 dBA, this inverter generator is among the quietest options available in its type and power range.
  • The iGen5000DFcv's runtime of up to 18 hours at a 25% load on a full tank positions it within the average autonomy range compared to other inverter generators with similar power. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Firman W03661OF, as it provides up to 25 hours.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel tank capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary for a complete understanding. When operating at 25% load, the inverter generator's fuel consumption is estimated at 0.19 GPH, placing it within the average range of gasoline usage among similarly powerful devices. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Champion 200988, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.16 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 3500-4500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Westinghouse iGen5000DFcv 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.
