Zoom on the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc

In a nutshell, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • 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 WH3700iXLTc in use

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc houses a 150 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 3,000W along with a peak wattage of 3,700W. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (parallel kit included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

With a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism.

The fuel capacity of 1.3 gallon allows the WH3700iXLTc to operate for up to 6 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.22 GPH).

The WH3700iXLTc 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 provides the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

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

Even if this Westinghouse generator isn't quite RV Ready, it still allows for an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included), thanks to its L5-30R receptacle.

Portability

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L23.9 x W13.3 x H19.3 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

With a dry weight of 70.5 lbs, the WH3700iXLTc can easily follow you wherever your power needs are. Moreover, its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle will allow you to effortlessly shift it once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc

The WH3700iXLTc's control panel

When the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is on overload, you will be informed by the featured light indicators. To offer greater control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

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. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc's package also includes these accessories: tool kit, RV adapter, funnel and oil.

Emissions

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc stands at only 70.5 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter inverters of the 2500-3500 rated wattage category If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, with a dry weight of just 46 pounds.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 58 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the more quiet of the products delivering similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU3000iS, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 50 dBA.
  • The WH3700iXLTc's autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its type and power range, as it reaches only up to 6 hours at 25% load on a full tank. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Champion 200914, boasting with up to 22 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. 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 0.22 GPH. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Energizer eZV3500P, with a fuel consumption of 0.13 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc 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, several sources report that they are in many cases manufactured in China.

Warranty Information

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc is covered under a warranty for up to 3 years. This warranty may be limited and may not cover all parts of the generator.
