Answer: 
It does not idle down ie a Honda por Yamaha as those are inverters and the Champion 3500/4000 is a generator and as such runs at a constant speed so as to produce constant 60 Hertz.

Answer: 
All conventional generators, such as this one. Depend on the engine speed to provide a proper frequency. These do not idle under no load, but they will be marginally quieter.

Answer: 
The second answer is correct. The engine must run at a constant RPM in order to produce 120 Volts. Some more expensive generators have a NO LOAD down to idle feature, but not this one.

Answer: 
This is a synchronous style generator which means it is designed to run at 3600 rpm, regardless of the load, in order to create 60 cycles a second or 60Hz of electrical frequency which is the North American standard. As a load is applied to the generator it will increase resistance to the engine requiring more fuel consumption to maintain 3600 rpm. Think of it as a car in cruise control going up a hill Read More

Answer: 
No, this does not have idle down feature.I will say when you put a good load on it has a change of sound but not because it speeds up but because of a change in pitch. Maybe a very slight noise increase. A engine thats being worked sounds different than one is not.

They recommend no more than 80ft. Which is far enough away to start with out ear protection. Honestly though the db level running is not high enough to require protection to start with in my opinion.

No - not like the Yamaha. This is not an inverter model. It's fairly quiet for a standard generator. If I remember right the spec is 68db at 21 ft or the like. You can talk next to it but it's pretty loud.

It's not as quiet as an "Inverter Generator" . I would say that your not going to like it in a campground. Your neighbors will like it less. You might be able to rig up some kind of sound proof box to put it in. But it's simple, the more you spend the lower the decibles

Answer: 
No. The idle down feature would be nice but this generator does not offer that. I do have a Powerhorse 9000 that does and the idea is great but i dont like how it runs on idle down mode. If im trying to run something that does not draw much electricity, it will not kick out of the idle down mode and i have to go flip the switch to idle the generator back up so it can send steady electricity.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great so far I bought this generator for my hubby as a birthday gift to power our camping trailer. I liked the idea of not having on pull start it and the handy little remote start. we took it on our first camping trip the day fter it arrived! It started up right away no stalling. The noise level is very tolerable. We borrowed a couple different brands for prior trips and this generator was by far the quietest. It's heavy but the included wheel kit makes moving it around super easy, even on rough terrain. We've only had it a few weeks but we are already very satisfied with our purchase July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great machine. I needed a portable generator to run power tools at my remote property. Started right up and performed as advertised! June 23, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesome Generator I bought this type so it would be easy for my wife to start if I wasn't home. With the easy remote start it's easy pezzy, just like starting your car with a remote. The fuel gauge on the top of the tank doesn't keep you guessing.it is very quiet, great for camping.
