When I purchased my Champion Power Equipment 3100-watt Portable Gas Inverter Generator, this cable was one of the items listed as "Frequently bought together". This is unfortunate because the outlet on the Champion 3100 watt inverter generator is a 3 prong twist lock TT-30R and this is a 3 prong twist lock L14-30P. I purchased 2 of these since I purchased 2 generators. I had to return both cables and on top of that I had to pay return shipping. The quality of the cable was excellent and it was very disappointing to have to send it back. Not sure why its listed as frequently bought together since it can't be used on the generator I purchased. Just make sure its compatible with your generator prior to 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 Overstock.com 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.
The generator started on the second pull, great, that was the first time I used it. Not too cold out, worked fine. This past week-end very cold (lower single digits) tried to start it and pull cord jammed in side the cover. I did the field repair and got it rewound etc. but the cord pulled hard. I was able to use it as long as I kept it inside where it was warm. When I got home today I took it apart again and found a lot of grease on the rewind mechanism ( grease and cold weather is not a good combination) I cleaned the grease off and lubed with silicone, hopefully that will fix the issue. I saw in another review the same problem with the pull cord. Warm weather is not an issue. If you're going to use it in really cold weather clean the grease off the rewind
