In short, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator adequately designed for:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools

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

Power & Run Time

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc in use

The Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc

Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc is equipped with a 150 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, running on gasoline and providing 120V, boasting a running wattage of 3,000W alongside a starting wattage of 3,700W. Furthermore, the parallel capability (parallel kit included) offers the advantage of doubling power output when connected to another similar or compatible unit, delivering expanded energy capacity and flexibility for various applications.

With a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator's starting mechanism is centered around a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism.

Equipped with a 1.3 gallon fuel tank, the WH3700iXLTc ensures continuous operation for up to 6 hours with a full tank (fuel usage approximately 0.22 gallons per hour).

The WH3700iXLTc ensures a clean sine wave output, boasting <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) to protect your sensitive electronics when connected to its AC outlets.

Outlets

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

While not classified as 'RV Ready,' this Westinghouse generator can still provides the advantage of RV connection via its L5-30R receptacle, ensuring power supply to your RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included).

Portability

With an inverter generator design, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc features a closed construction (L23.9 x W13.3 x H19.3 in), enhancing aesthetics and ensuring reduced noise levels, offering a distinct advantage over standard, open frame generators. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

As the WH3700iXLTc's weight is only 70.5 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. In addition, with its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle, it may be shifted with ease, once placed on the floor.

Features

Panel of the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc

The WH3700iXLTc's control panel

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

Regarding security, the generator comes with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during operation.

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.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, oil, RV adapter and tool kit.

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).

  • When it comes to weight, the Westinghouse WH3700iXLTc tips the scales at just 70.5 pounds, making it one of the lighter inverter generators in the 2500 to 3500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO with only 46 pounds.
  • At just 58 dBA rated noise level, this inverter generator is positioned as one of the quieter choices among devices delivering similar type and power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Honda EU3000iS, whose lowest noise levels reach just 50 dBA.
  • As for its runtime, the WH3700iXLTc runs for up to 6 hours at a 25% load, placing it towards the low end among comparable inverters. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the Champion 200914 shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling up to 22 hours.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. In terms of fuel efficiency within its wattage range, this inverter generator falls short: it consumes approximately 0.22 GPH at a 25% load. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Energizer eZV3500P, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.13 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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, they are in many cases manufactured in China.
