Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator meets advertised quality and performance Ordered this Generator from Amazon.com. Arrived 7/26/2019. It arrived VERY well packaged and protected with all parts for the Generator. Very little assembly required, it was simple and quick to assemble. All instructions are very clear and easy to follow, from unpacking to the first start-up. It starts quickly and easily. I have not as yet finished wiring it to my home to put it under a load. This Generator is obviously of good quality, nothing about it cheaply made. I have no doubt it will perform well under a load. So far I am pleased with this purchase and very happy that it has a 3 year warranty, most don't have this much warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WGEN12000DF I said in another review how much I enjoyed this great generator running on gas but it wouldn't run on propane. I said I would update that review when the issue was resolved. It was and I am happy to say that this great generator runs GREAT on propane! It took a little of this and that but basically Lowes exchanged my first one with a second one and I couldn't be happier. I have to add that Westinghouse was going to exchange it out also but since I bought it from Lowes it was better this way. Thank you Lowes And Westinghouse for your superior customer service! My home is now more than ready with quality backup power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of mind I did a huge amount of research, and found that for the price, and features you can't beat it. So, just received this new machine today 10/14/21. The delivery was right on-time, and packaged very well. Unpacked it, assembled it, which was a breeze, and it looks great. Have not fired it up yet, and will update later with that experience. So far things look great! Can't wait to get it into it's new home, and throw some load on this blue beast. Running 2 30am circuits into the house's transfer switches. Converted the 50a to a 30a cable for the second circuit. Going to power a 2500 sqft home with 2 living arrangements, so 2 of everything... Won't do everything, I'm sure, but I took the time to balance out the power consumption critical to to the house if we loose power in our cold climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power house! Purchased the WGen 12000/15000 DF and I’m so impressed. I had an electrician install a Reliance Controls PB50 (50amp) plug to my house. Used a 50amp power cord from generator to house. This generator ran 100% everything in my house. I ran the Central A/C, ceiling fans, all lights in and out the house. TV’s, microwave, wife’s blow dryer, oven, furnace no problem. Didn’t even bog down. I feel as though this thing had more to give than what I threw at it. I live in a 1700sf home so I hope this review can help those who are considering this unit. I highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will Upgrade Rating If Issue Is Resolved First, I was unaware that this generator was made in China until I received it. It was designed in the USA. Second, out of the box it had several relatively minor paint imperfections on the frame where it was worn off from rubbing against something. Finally, there is an oil leak that appears to be coming from the oil fill plug. I can live with the other issues, but I need to have something done about the oil leak. Other than those things, the setup was easy. It started immediately and ran like a champ. It's not as noisy as I expected, but we'll see what the neighbors have to say about that after the first all-night run - it won't bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast This thing is built like a tank. Started up without issue after the tires and oil was added. I’ve had no issues so far. Make sure you have someone to help you move it cause it’s heavy. The tires makes it easy to maneuver around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable piece of garbage Unreliable since I bought it brand new. Incapable of running more than 10 minutes without shutting itself off. The power went out here about 90 minutes ago. I fired this up and it has been up and down about 10 times since then. It shut off in the middle of writing this review. The problem? Who knows? Run out there and push the button and it starts right up and runs for another 10 minutes and shuts off. Troubleshooting guide very helpfully says on point 4 "maybe the problem is in the generator. Take it to a service center". Ok, it is brand new with not even 10 hours on it (I can't keep it running that long). My advice? BUY SOMETHING ELSE or sit in the dark.
