Outstanding Quality And Power
From the purchase via Electric Generators Direct to the delivery to the unboxing and the start up this has exceeded my expectations. The delivery arrived three days after the purchase. The driver did not just drop it at the end of the driveway, but used his forklift to bring it into the garage. The generator was strapped to a pallet and was in perfect condition. After reading through the instructions the wheels were mounted in 10 minutes and without any effort. Fuel and oil were added and... more

Chose Over Honda And Yamaha
Consumer reports rated this generator well. Was going to buy a Yamaha but this was rated better. So glad I did. Auto start and same output for almost half price. Thanks Westinghouse! Easy assembly and easy to move around. PED is the place to go for your power needs. Arrived in great condition.

Very Good Product
I live in Florida. So when Hurricane Irma hit, we (as well as a lot of my neighbors were) without power for several hours. I was able to let some of my neighbors to run extension lines to run their refrigerators & some lights till our power was restored. Great for emergency situations!!

Well Built, Nice Features, Easy Start
Our Westinghouse 7500 running watts arrived in good packaging and was completely assembled except for the wheels. The directions were well written and easy to follow. Generator came with a quart of oil which was nice. From delivery to crank up was less than 30 minutes. This generator is quieter than our old 4400 watt generator which was a pleasant surprise. The generator start button started the generator on the first push. We are very pleased with our purchase.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Easy To Store

Very Happy With The Purchase
Bought this generator for my elderly parents in Puerto Rico after the hurricane. They love the generator! They like the features, especially button to turn it on - because of their age, to be pulling the cord would have been difficult. It last more than 10 hours per tank. Super pleased with the purchase. They have been using it for 3 weeks for more than 15 hours every day!

This WGen7500 was all I needed to run our two refrigerators and one small freezer, couldn't ask for a better unit, and still had power to run a TV and fan. Thanks for a great product.

Very Satisfied
I bought this generator after doing considerable research comparing the various portable generators out on the market. The WGen7500 rated high and had all the features I was looking for and felt were important to have. Once I had zeroed in on the make and model of generator I was looking for, I then researched on who had the best price. I chose Electric Generators Direct and I have not regretted it. Thanks for the quick service and prompt delivery.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Price, High Quality
