Wow been looking st this generator range for a few years still haven't pulled the trigger but the price is great. Only not familiar with this brand. Anyone know how this compares to the Honda or generac models or has used this wen model?

Wen is just as good as the Honda's and Generacs at one third the cost. I have 2 of them connected via the parallel kit and it is still going strong after 2.5 years.

I run them quite frequently and do oil changes every 50-60 hrs of use as well as change the spark plugs every year. Best purchase I've made!

Two of these together provide epic power. Easy maintenance. Get the parallel kit and never look back.

2000 surge watts. Only 1,700 running watts, which is what matters. All other brands prominently advertise the rated watts, not sure why Wen decided to flaunt the surge rating...

peak transient power rating is very important, continuous power is always lower than the peak turn on power for an electrical device. You need to know both ratings

I don't think your assertion is true. The Honda EU2200i, which they call a '2200 watt' generator, is really only 2200 surge watts. It is an 1800 watt generator.

Most generators do this, otherwise they would be at a advertising disadvantage.

Anyone know the difference between this and the 56200i model? 1700 vs 1600 running wattage. Engine displacement 79cc vs 79.7cc. Looks to be different engines as they also use different spark plugs. The 56200i was on a one day sale recently for $345.xx on Amazon so wondering which one would be better if anyone had any thoughts. If anything, they're similar enough minus the increased running wattage which is attractive.

That's the one I was thinking of. Specs are nearly identical.. maybe 56202 is just a newer revision. Has an extra USB port & the extra rated running wattage. It's more expensive on Amazon than the 56200.

Seems to be no tax / free ship for most also, which puts it on par with the Amazon deal.
