Remember when you cowered in fear during potential power outages? It's time to throw back your head and cackle at nature's petty attempts to rain on your parade with the WEN 5500-Watt Generator. Boasting an impressive 5500 surge watts and 5000 running watts, this generator will ensure that your basement stays dry, your meat stays cold, and your TV stays on under even the harshest of weather conditions. The EPAIII 389cc 13 HP OHV engine along with the 6.5-gallon fuel tank combine to provide users up to 11 hours of runtime at half load. The WEN 5500-Watt Generator includes four 120V 20A three-prong receptacles, one twist-lock 120/240V 30A receptacle (L14-30), and one car-charger-style 12V DC outlet. 

The WEN 5500-Watt Generator also comes packed with features, including a spark arrestor, a necessary addition to meet the standards for use in U.S. National Parks and Forests. The automatic voltage regulator helps produce cleaner and safer power to protect your electronics. Power indicator lights above the receptacles inform users as to whether or not the outlets are live, while a circuit breaker protects the generator from surge damage. The included wheel and handle kit makes mobility simple for tailgating, job sites and campgrounds. Low-oil shut down safeguards the unit from damage while the digital hour counter helps users stay on a routine maintenance schedule. And because it's a WEN Product, your purchase comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer help line. Sure, reconnecting with your family during an evening of electricity-free conversation doesn't sound that bad, but let's be real: you want to watch TV. The WEN 5500-Watt Generator wants to help. Remember when you were able to provide your family emergency backup power in times of need? Remember WEN.
