      Verified Purchase

      Great generator for the money. I would suggest that Overstock repackage or add more protection to their heavier or oversized products. My generator is operational but UPS shipping took the original packaging to another level causing a crushed box and unwanted dings on my new product.

      This is for standby use, but I tested it and it ran all my appliances just fine. Pretty quiet as well. Should be a great item to have in my emergency stock.

    • Overall good generator...good customer service.
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • Read so many reviews & settled on CHAMPION!
      Verified Purchase

      I read SO much before deciding on this a ridiculous amount. Went to tool store sites, went to 'prepper' sites, you name it. I settled on this one because so many people talked about thier Champion Generators lasting YEARS… this is a newer model, so I can just hope it's a durable as others in the past! All the current reviews I read also had great things to say about this product. I will say it arrived only slightly damaged, not effecting the operation of the unit, and it was simple stuff that Overstock took care of FAST! Does it work? YES!!! It was so easy and I LOVE the remote start!!! Also, very little work 'assembling it (just the wheels & handle & attach battery cables). With new oil & gas, it started RIGHT AWAY - easy-peasy! I will mention that the instructions were a little confusing about 'grounding' the generator.....I'm just a beginner with these things & it seemed like it was quite elaborate to ground this thing - NOT TRUE - only needs 'grounding' like in the directions/manual IF you are going to hook it directly to your house/use it in a more regular-basis. For normal generator purpose (emergency use/temporary) it's 'grounded' already. Also had some trouble finding the dipstick for the oil, they need to show pic's in the manual - ditto on the fuel switch too! It was just a little confusing - I used to change my own car oil, so I’m not a dummy, but this took a bit of looking online to see pic’s/videos to make sure I was filling oil in the correct area! *NOTE* Instruction manual says to fill with .6 Liter of oil - WRONG! It was overflowing & pouring out the top! Huge mess & thankfully I had done this on top pf cardboard ‘just in case’. I’d guess it was more like .4 Liter, cuz I had to tip the unit to get excess oil out or I could not have gotten the dipstick back in…..after running I was able to put a tiny bit more oil in, but not much! I'm adding pics of what I did to make it easier in the future in case hubby or kids start this up in my absence, I used red duct tape to annotate areas of the unit that got HOT (after running it only a short 30-40 minutes) & arrows for where things were. All in all, especially for the price - this seems like a really robust generator - BIG BANG for the BUCK! (I'm not thinking whole-house here folks, just tankless water heater alternating with refer & maybe a TV if the power goes out)!

    • Impressive - Best Value Out There!
      Verified Purchase

      Let me start by telling you that I did a lot of research on portable generators before I decided to purchase this 3500 Watt Champion. I was searching for something that would fit all of my needs as I have a 30 foot travel trailer with 6 people staying in it pretty regularly. I just purchased and received this generator last week and used it all night Friday, all day and night Saturday, and half the day Sunday. The first great thing about it is that it started up right away with the remote start. (Once done assembling it and filing it with gas and oil. Which was a total time of 20 minutes to do absolutely everything) I was extremely happy about that since we were in the middle of some pretty bad weather at the time. I plugged in the 30amp RV cord and then started to use the camper as if I had a regular hookup. We put out the slide outs, turned on the furnace because it was only 30 degrees out, turned on the refrigerator and hot water heater, all the lights and tv's. This generator never skipped a beat. It ran the entire 3 days (all day and night) and we never had 1 problem! (I did however shut the generator off and drain the oil and put in new oil after the first 8hrs of runtime. I heard that it is good to do that.) The noise level is not bad at all either. We had it sitting about 20 feet to the side of the camper bedroom and we couldn't even hear it run. It has all of the nice features like Remote Start and Stop, Electric Start, Includes the battery, has digital voltage meter, and includes the handle and wheels. I can't see a better purchase out there!
