Power & Run Time

The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT in use

The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT

The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT's engine, 79 cc (3 hp) Westinghouse OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120V. It provides a running wattage of 1,800W and reaches a peak wattage of 2,200W. In addition, the parallel capability (Westinghouse WHPC Parallel Cord (opens in a new tab) not included) empowers doubling of power output when linked to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

Rated for 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator's starting mechanism relies on a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

With a fuel capacity of 1.3 gallon, the WH2200iXLT may run for up to 13 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.1 GPH).

The <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of the WH2200iXLT ensures a clean sine wave output, providing a secure power source for your sensitive electronics through its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A receptacle providing easy battery charging capabilities.

Portability

As an inverter generator, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT showcases a closed design (L20 x W12.5 x H17.5 in), enhancing aesthetics and ensuring quieter operation compared to conventional, open frame models. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

At a mere 43 lbs, the WH2200iXLT is a standout option for those in need of a lightweight and portable power solution. The product’s power can be enjoyed on-the-go, as it can be moved by a single person without trouble. Its handle (molded in the case) adds to the convenience, making it easy to carry.

Features

The WH2200iXLT's control panel

The generator's light indicators provide visual feedback when the generator is overloaded, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), providing peace of mind during use.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT features extra accessories: tool kit, funnel and oil.

The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT weighs just 43 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 1500 to 2500 rated wattage inverter generators. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Genmax GM2000i with only 34.2 pounds.
  • With a noise rating as low as 52 dBA, this inverter generator is among the quieter options available in its type and power range. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU2200i, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 48 dBA.
  • With a run time of up to 13 hours at 25% load, the WH2200iXLT has one of the highest run times, compared to its similarly powerful peers.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel-efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP2300iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.08 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT 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.
