Interestingly enough, the Generac in this size appears to be the same machine internally as this Westinghouse. Even the exterior design is the same; the only difference is the color, front panel and name slapped on the side. Pulsar and some others are the same generator in this size as well.Sad experience, but sometimes you just get what you pay for. Don't think you'd have problems with a Honda or a Generac.
Not much in a brand name these days, with the exception of Honda and few others.
