Below I will compare the power, portability, and features of the Wen 56200i and Champion 73536i
Difference between Wen 56200i and Champion 73536i
In terms of wattage, the candidate from the WEN 56200i may lose one point to its peer. While WEN 56200i runs at 1600 watts, the Champion 73536i is more powerful with 1700 running watts.
Both have a starting power of 2000 watt. As a result, both will be more flexible and versatile in powering appliances or engines that need an external boost to start.
Besides, you must consider each model’s runtime. The Champion 73536i can provide up to 9.5 hours of working non-stop, while the WEN 56200i only operates up to 9.4 hours.
How about their fuel efficiency? This sub-criteria is essential because it decides whether you can save a big deal of money for running the machine with gasoline.
Honestly, these inverter generators are both fuel-efficient. But in particular, with 50% of the maximum capacity, the WEN 56200i consumes 0.17 gallons per hour, whereas the Predator’s figure is 0.11 gallons per hour.
Both generators are perfectly suited for sensitive electronics. (<3% for the Champion 73536i and <1.2% for the WEN 56200i)
At 50 dBA, the Wen 56200i produces a lower noise level compared to Champion 73536i’s 53 dBA
Dimensions 18 x 11 x 18 inches, the WEN 56200i offers a more compact experience compared to the Champion 73536i’s 18.9 x 16.5 x 22.4 inches
The WEN 56200i features 18 x 11 x 18 inches in dimension. So, it is less bulky than the 18.9 x 16.5 x 22.4 inches of the Champion 73536i.
However, Champion 73536i (48,5 lbs) surpasses its rival (50 lbs). As a result, the former is less heavy than the latter.
This battle must be a draw game. Both of these models possess their advantages. Both have handles that increase grip when you want to move
First of all, let’s talk about their starting system. You can start the Predator 3500 and the Westinghouse 4500 with their pull-start mechanism. Furthermore, the latter model also allows you to start the machine from a distance, which is more convenient.
The second feature that should be taken into account is the outlet. Both of them provide 2 AC outlets and a DC output.
The WEN 56200i is equipped with a fuel gauge that provides an instant fuel level display
