The WEN GN6000 is quite a remarkable machine. I’m not one for cheap generators, so this conclusion is quite unexpected. Though, I would not begin to compare the GN6000 to a similar generator from brands like Honda or Yamaha. Considering the price difference, it wouldn’t be a reasonable comparison. In the light to medium duty domestic generator market, the WEN GN6000 can be held in highest regard. It’s delightfully affordable and the savings will continue for as long as you own the machine, thanks to its very reasonable fuel economy. With a 2-year warranty, and an expansive dealership service network, this is a budget-friendly generator that you can buy with confidence.
The WEN GN6000 is powered by a 272cc, 4-stroke, OHV engine. This engine displacement is a little lower than I’d have expected for a generator of this size. Yet it delivers the 5000W specified running power quite effortlessly. The engine speed is quite normal, at 3600 RPM. It should hold up well to most operating conditions. Fuel consumption is better than the average 6000W generator at 5.5 kilowatt-hours per gallon. The large 3.5 gallon gas tank will give you 7.5 hours runtime at 50% load (2500W). This is perfectly convenient for most users, be it at home or to supply an RV.
