    • Champion is one of the best

      I have had nothing but a great experience with Champion generators. This purchase is no exception. I have two of the smaller 1200 watt models and have run them, and run them, and run them. They seem to never die as long as you keep the oil clean and full and a good spark plug installed. The most I've had to do is adjust the valves after many hours of use. This is a very easy thing to do if you are at all mechanically inclined. This model seems to meet my previous experience. It is well built, solid and looks good to boot! Arrived undamaged, put the wheels and handle on, filled with oil, connected the battery, turned fuel valve on, added some gas and started right up. Runs quieter than expected for its size. Has a nice big muffler. Is heavy so the wheels and handle are a must. The electric start is great. From my previous experience with Champion, I expect to get years of trouble free use from this one also. Highly recommended. Best bang for the buck and much better than the generic ones found everywhere. Note that Champion engines have a cast iron cylinder sleeve which most of the other don't. It is a must for long engine life. Highly recommend if you are looking for a reliable generator that won't break the bank.

    • Good generator, great price!

      We bought this generator for our camper and tested it out last week. The set up was easy. Note that the box says that oil was included, but in fact it was not. Just need to go pick up some 10W30. The remote start is great. Not a single problem turning on or off! For a first generator for us, this is perfect. The included wheel kit is a plus. The only con that I can say is that the generator is loud. If you're buying this for camping, expect your neighbors to hear your generator. The price was really good for the product that we received. If you want a good, QUIET generator, expect to pay $2000 - $2500.

    • Overall good generator...good customer service.

      The generator arrived from Overstock in a very timely fashion...within three days of the order. Just like the reviewer from Nov 21 ours arrived with a crushed air cleaner assembly. I am decently handy so I wound up contacting Champion's customer service number directly and told them the situation. I then told them the replacement parts I would need after reading them from the parts diagram list included with the manual. Champion sent the parts for free and I received them within 4 days. I fixed the crushed air cleaner myself and now the generator runs well. Except for that problem (which seemed to happen in shipping) the generator seems to be of good quality and I had a good experience with the Champion customer service. The tech there told me that the air cleaner assembly seems to get crushed often in shipping because Overstock and most other companies ship the generators with the original packaging and nothing else. This seems to increase the likelihood of the air cleaner getting crushed as the boxes aren't made for individual shipping. If I weren't of the mechanical level I am I wouldn't have been able to replace the assembly myself and would have asked for a new generator. On the product itself and the customer service I am giving four stars. On the fact that the generator arrived damaged due to their persistent problems in packaging the product correctly or due to Overstock's lack of adding more packaging when sending this unit out I would give one star. But because has the best price w/o charging shipping and because the Champion customer service was so good I will keep the overall rating at four stars.

    • Great for the RV

      I got this to run my RV for those places that have no power. I can run the air ,lights and the microwave. I loved the idea it came with the wheel package as well as the remote start. The remote start is cool for when you just don't feel like going out side to start it on that early morning. The noise is not Honda quiet but it is not to bad. This is a must have for the RV.

    • I see in the product details it has a 30 amp RV plugs and also that it is rated 25 amps , so if the RV air cond. Draws 28 amps is it gonna continually trip the breaker. and also how could you add a 30 amp plug if in fact it is only 25 amp rated

      • Hello Emil, this is a 30 amp unit. We apologize for the confusion and will get this corrected right away. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Is the 20" wide measurement with or without the wheels? If it is without the wheels, how wide total with wheel kit added?

      • Thank you for your question and I apologize for the delayed response. It looks like we actually had the wrong dimensions listed, so we are working to get that updated. The correct dimensions, with the wheels attached, are: 24.7 inches x 23.9 inches x 21.8 inches.

    • Does it come with a battery for the electric start? Doesn't state in details. Thanks.

    • Does anyone know if this generator would be powerful enough to handle the load of a fifth wheel and the roof air? At only 3500 watts, I have some concerns. What did the other customer mean by asking if this is a variable rate generator? I'm considering the Duromax 4400 also sold on e-bay? Thanks

      • Thank you for your question samilee99. The generator should be powerful enough to handle the load of a fifth wheel as long as it doesn't go over 35000 watts. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

    • What power cord should be purchased to connect generator to a Reliance disconnect box? Can't seem to find correct male end to the generator and proper female plug to the disconnet nox.

      • Please try a 50 to 100 foot, 7500 watt Generator cord. This can be found at your local hardware store.

    • I previously asked about the key for this generator. I see that it is remote, but don't see any place on the panel for a key entry. So are you telling me it has a remote start without the use of a key to turn to an on position? Thanks

      • There is no key for the remote. There is a switch you flip on and then hit the button on the remote starter.

    • This says it is remote with electric start, but I don't see a key entry on the front of the genertor?

      • This generator does in fact come with a wireless remote that works up to 80 feet away.

    • Do the wheels come with the generator?

    • is this a variable rate generator?
