Ordered and received in 3 days; put the recommended on in 10W 30 motor oil and started on the first pull. Owner's manual is great and it has every part # listed in the manual with illustrations. Great job Champion! It's nice to get a complete owner's manual when most are very lacking. Generator is fine and it is not loud at all. (And pray tell what generator doesn't make some noise?) We also have the top end generator starting with "H" the 2000...not much difference in the noise levels. This runs very smooth and doesn't sound like running lawn mower that needs a new spark plug! LOL...Why would you spend over 1K more for the same red "H" generator is beyond me? We will use this for recreational trips. Thanks Overstock!
I was concerned about 2 things. First, would this 3100 watt genny power my 13k BTU AC and microwave at the same time? Secondly, would it be as quiet as my friends 3100 watt Honda genny? I am happy to say that this will power anything I can throw at it (AC + microwave) but it will do so quietly. The big heavy Hondas are a tad quieter but not the Honda Handy. Having the luxury of starting this with a remote but I find having the ability to turn it off late at night to be even more useful. The wheels help me move it while at home but don't help much at the campground. Can't roll on gravel roads. But this generator can be lifted out of the truck with just one person and actually slides into place quite easily. I had a 12% discount through retailmenot that brought the price below $*** (price was $***. Great product and great job Overstock.
