This is a great deal for this generator I paid about $1k for this unit two years ago. Installed a transfer switch and I'm able to run most everything in my home.

Seems like a solid price but really hunting for dual/tri fuel. Want to avoid gasoline as a source if possible to make for less maintenance. Of course that means you get a bit less power also.

you really want dual fuel. Gas maintenance is a PITA.

I'm holding out for dual fuel myself, but recognized a good price and hoped it would help someone.

I don't think Costco even carries Westinghouse. Maybe they meant Sams Club?

Thanks for sharing, OP. According to camel^3, this is a great price on this generator from Amazon. Since the price has varied so much, there's no real "regular" price for it.

Just because I'm actively researching a larger generator right now, I turned down the Westinghouse and Duromax models because their THD is very high. they might seem like good values for the money, but realize what you are buying. High THD can fry "sensitive" electronics and is known to reduce the lifespan of simpler things like appliances [powerupgenerator.com].

Westinghouse look very nice and have plenty of output options but the THD is "<23% [generatorbible.com]" (yes that could be 1% but if it's that low, why put such a large number out there?)
Duromax models are more barebones looking and THD ~ 12%

THD can often vary with load, too, but that information is generally not provided by manufacturers.

For reference you're really looking at under 5%.

I currently have a B&S StormResponder 5500/8250 and wanted to upsize to run AC as well as I noticed during the last outage (that was a week long this past week) a few odd things. First, many of my LED lights would flicker, but not all, some horribly. Second, even though I wasn't pulling anywhere near the capacity of the unit, when my well pump kicked on (max draw = 1500W), it would throw most of my UPS units for a loop, some behaving very erratically. The THD for that generator is stated as 3-6%. I can only imagine what 12 or 23% would do!

I'll take gas over dual fuel just for the amount of energy per quantity of fuel. Run it dry before storage and you'll be good for next startup. Either one should fog the cylinders for long term storage.
Generally I run 0.5 gallons of fuel through mine 1x a year until it's empty and used a high quality oil to start.

Can you educate us as to why this THD metric is so important Thanks

edit: oh it is for sensitive electronics, gotcha. So 5% THD is required to run sensitive electronics, like things with a motherboard? Thanks
