Saw a really nice one at Costco the other day that ran off gas, propane, or NG. It was like $899.

Wife has stocked up on batteries, carbon monoxide detectors and a couple of fire extinguishers for the house. Going to check and see if the interlock, exterior plug, cable and a couple of extra 20lb propane bottles fall into the tax free category. Might as well. I have a Coleman 6250 that could do what i need but have the itch to get a Wgen9500df.

I've been looking for a Westinghouse duel fuel 4500: Model #IGEN4500DF


Seems everybody has sold out of them.

Thanks for the lead. To bad their 4500 isn't duel fuel. But their gas unit does have the very same data as the Westinghouse 4500 gasser. I'm looking for the dual fuel. Because it can be adapted for NG use also. There by making it a Tri-fuel.

I was going to buy a Westinghouse 9500 duel fuel yesterday. All the big box stores were out of this model. They had the 7500 models, but not what i wanted. I think either one would run what i want, but i was going bigger because it was only a few hundred dollars more.

I looked for this one for a long time and finally just went with the iGen4500 gas only. I like it. Bought it September and probably have 60 hours on it. Use it to run my cabin where we hunt. It is quiet and runs a long time on a tank of gas. I did notice a small oil leak the other day so need to see what’s going on.
