  • 212cc 4-stroke CARB-compliant OHV engine produces 4000 surge watts and 3500 rated watts
  • Lightweight body weighs 30% less than a standard 4000-watt generator
  • Includes two 120V NEMA 5-20R receptacles, two 5V USB ports, one 120V RV-ready TT-30R receptacle, and a two-year warranty
Amazon for comparison and reviews (do not use this link to purchase the generator. Use the link at the top of the description) - https://www.amazon.com/WEN-GN400i...B07XZVLC9H

Mine came with the normal jets installed, and a set of the high altitude and very high altitude jets in individual bags.

I also picked up the magnetic oil [wenproducts.com] dipstick for mine since generators don't usually have oil filters

Slickdeals keeps trying to change the store to Amazon in the listing for some reason. The amazon link is just for review comparison. The price is from the Wen site directly.

Hmm, buy this or wait for the quieter 3800 watt version to be discounted at around $680?

Depends on your use case. I got this for emergency power outage so I didn't have to worry about what I plugged into the generator (vs the normal generators that can fry sensitive electronics) so noise isn't really a factor for me.

Bought this last month. Breaking in just fine. Obviously pretty loud but I have my westy 2200 if I need a true closed inverter for noise purposes.

It would be nice to be able to use it tailgating, camping, etc. But is that worth an extra 3 bills...

I also bought the last time was in stock, set it up and started easily. Noise is not an issue as will only use for power outages where the whole neighborhood has them running. For an inverter generator the price is hard to beat.

This thing is only 66lbs which is doable for one person to get around. The quieter version is almost 100lbs. If you wanted to put in the back of a truck you kinda need a second person or a chiropractor

I bought this about 6 months ago and it is amazing. I use it for work and pull it around with a yard cart. I would strongly recommend getting this and also getting the magnetic dipstick. I was amazed at how much metal it gets out of oil. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

I just saw a review on YT of this same model but has the NEMA L5-30R plug instead of the TT-30R. I would much rather have the L5-30R but I don't see it on the WEN website.

We moved to a new house and I realized the previous owner installed a transfer switch like 5 months before putting house on the market.

Wondering if I should just get this and buy a TT-30R to L5-30R adapter.

Update: I looked up the manual and in the parts list, the RV receptacle, which this one has, is part number: GN400I-1418B.

The NEMA L5-30R is part number GN400I-1418.

Yet, WEN website doesn't have this part and Google doesn't turn up anything.
