Have not yet used for its intended purpose but Ive been practicing to ensure I can get it to work following hurricane. I think I will love this Wen 2250 watt gen. Im a 70 yr old female. While its very heavy to pick up and move, that weight helps keep it in place while pulling the starter cord. It is very, very easy to start and is exceptionally quiet. I wish it came with wheels. I plan to buy a dolly so I can move it around outside a little easier. So far, I am very happy with this purchase.

Quiet generator thats easy to start.
Excellent Portable Generator, highly recommend.
Urelatively light weight, very quiet, outstanding very low fuel consumption.
The WEN Inverter is super quite and easy to setup
The WEN unit was a good fit for my needs. It was very simple to setup and started with no issues. I tested it under 1/2 load and full load. When the unit throttled up to full load I was very pleased to find out just how quite the WEN inverter was.
This machine is so quiet. I cranked it and walked about 20' from it. I was also about the same distance from my home's ac unit. I could hear the AC as it was really hot that day, BUT I could not hear the generator!! I had purchased the WEN 1800 watt unit previously as it was hundreds cheaper... but it was loud, way too loud to use in a campground. Capable but loud as it runs at full tilt all the time compared to the 2000W that idles until it is stressed. I plugged in a 500 watt work lamp and it felt the load when I turned it on but only for a moment (but this is pretty much a dead short to the generator.) Then I tried a 1200 watt heater and it didn't really notice it was there. For the big test I plugged in a 5000 BTU window AC unit and started it up thinking that for sure the start up surge would slow the 2000W down a little, but NO, again again the 2000W didn't skip a beat. I purchased this generator to power my 14 foot Travel Trailer when I go to racetracks where there are no hookups. Perfect.
The generators setup guide was not the best. It does not come with oil, so you have to get oil and put it in. this isn't bad, except they tell you to pull the service cover off to fill the oil, but they don't show you a thing about where the service cover is or which screws to undo to remove it. It wasn't that hard to figure out, so I still give it an excellent. While you have the cover off don't forget to get the product # which is etched into the motor for your warranty registration. I put oil in and pulled the starter three times and it fired up. It has a regular mode which runs at a high speed that your supposed to use running over a 1000 watts which is as loud as it gets. way quieter than my old generator. Eco mode is way quieter. Second and third time it started on the first pull. 48 lbs., easy start, and quiet. Perfect for an old man.
I have a gourmet kielbasi shop, and needed an inverter generator for awhile. I finally looked at many, and after reviews ordered this Wen. It's just as quiet as a$1300 Honda, and uses very little gas! At my farmers markets i go to, every other person can not believe how quiet it is! Thanks again, Joe T
Well packed and arrived on time. Excellent instructions and a basic tool kit and a oil fill funnel cams with it Started on third pull , ran smoothly but am waiting for a magnetic oil drain plug. Will run Mobil 1 -5w 30 and 100% gas. No real negatives, except a little heavier and a bit louder than a Honda, but has a bit more power. A good trade off.....for 1/2 the price of a Honda and probably equal in quality. Anticipating good service life, I definitely recommend it. I wish it came with a cover. It looks like Ill have to have one made.
Bought this for my RV camp outs.
Nice unit but It would not run the microwave in my trailer ( 1000 watt ). The crazy thing is it would run my A/C unit. That made me happy as I could easily down size the microwave. So that's exactly what I did. In all it worked out good. It is a very quiet unit and starts on no more than 2 pulls every time. I kept the heavy duty box and packaging to store it in.
The generator looks sharp, it's easy to transport, and started right up. I bought this for my RV, especially for the 1,500 microwave. Should be easy since the generator is rated at 2,000 start up, 1,700 running. With everything shut off except the microwave, the generator only lasted 5 seconds before it died. And forget about the "super quiet" moniker. I easily returned the generator to Walmart, no questions asked.
Arrived damaged- cracked shell/outer casing
Unfortunately after a lot of research I chose this generator only to have it delivered damaged. So maybe not a fair assessment of the generator but others have commented on the fragile plastic plastic shell. Was a pain to return and am back on the market. Seems like it was fairly well packaged but the box has signs of slight damage. Either the delivery service for Walmart is rough or this is too easy to break.
