Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough stuff! I bought this generator a little over 4 years ago and luckily havent had to use it much. I took care of it though, starting every few months, etc. Recently we had a big tropical storm that took out a bunch of trees and knocked out power for 5 days. This generator ran beautifully, and with 7500 running watts, was able to run a bunch of appliances. Can't tell at what capacity it ran, but I'd say 70-75%; this got us about 8-9 hours per tank. Great generator and easy to move here and there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product! Easy to use, plenty of power. NOTE: just registered this product (twice - 1st one could not find purchase date, 2nd one is correct) ; actually I probably registered it as soon as we purchased it. I would recommend this product to anyone needing auxiliary power source. Our home is all electric - purchased for emergencies such as commercial power outages; to run window a/c's summer, heaters winter. One problem, the battery (Poweron 12v 14Ah has died on it, Having trouble finding replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Westinghouse 7500 Generator Read the manual then it took me a few minutes to put it together. Started right away and I have no doubt it will keep the lights on when the power goes out! I also had an electrician come in and install a sub-panel and then ran the 30amp plug to the outside of my house. Great product and it looks very good as well.

Does this model come with a power cord that plugs into the house?

What type of cord does it take?
Asked by: Anonymous
It does NOT come with any wires. I purchased a 25 foot 10 gauge wire for heavy duty appliances (fridge, microwave, coffee maker) and some regular extension cords for lamps, tv, heaters, computer etc. You would need to run these wires into the house. If you wanted to go one step further, you could get a professional electrician to set up a separate panel for only those items and plugs you want powered by the generator and then use the generator to run that panel during a power failure. Since most power failures run from a few hours to a couple of days (mostly), I didn't feel the expense was warranted. It is all a matter of personal need and cost.

Does it idle automatically when there's no load to save fuel?

I can't see/tell if it idles automatically to save fuel. As well, is there any decibel rating?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can hear the generator motor work a little harder when it is under load from the starting of something that is plugged into it. For example, if you plug a circular saw into the generator and start the saw, you can hear the generator slightly increase its rpm and then immediately settle back down once the saw is running. With nothing plugged into it, it just runs the same as a lawn mower sitting idle. The more that is plugged into it, the more it works and thus, the more fuel it burns. As for noise level, think lawn mower. No decibel number is given.
