I ordered the generator on-line from Home Depot as they had the best price and free delivery. The generator was delivered in 4 days. Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends. The generator was packed in an unmarked plain brown box, not the normal Champion packaging I've seen on other models in the stores. Handwritten in pencil on the lid was the model number and the word "NEW". There were oil marks leaking thru. Upon removing from the carton, I found a bent frame and a smashed air filter with no coresponding damage to the box. It appears HD 'regifted' a returned unit. It already has been returned for a refund.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tanya a womans perspective of best purchase ever!!!
We live in the mtns building our off the grid cabin
We depend on our generator for for almost everything. The old pull cord was difficult to start not to mention stumbling in the dark to find at night. Not a good feeling. Our new remote champion changed all that. I never have to worry any longer when my husband is not around anymore. A two year old can start this by remote up to eighty ft away. I now can start my lights at night pulling in the driveway of my cabin. No more crushed feet in the dark. I am at peace now and extremly self sufficient now thank to champion for the freedom of worry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weekendcarpenter A generator that delivers
After exhausting myself with reading review after review on generators I decided to pull the trigger on a Champion. The price, the features ie electric start plus remote start are a plus especially for my wife. It isn't too heavy that it can not be lifted into the back of my pickup and is quiet as possible while running. Do the necessary maintenance checks on it and it will take care of you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jake Exactly what I needed
First of all, the generator pleasantly arrived several days early. I ordered online and opted for home delivery. Assembly was not difficult, however the description stated the oil was separate and included and it was not. I had oil so this was no problem. I have tried starting the generator several times by all three methods,-remote, push button and recoil- and it has started every time. I had a smaller generator before and was happy to find out this one is as quiet as the smaller one. I wanted the electric start so my wife would be able to easily start it if I was not home. I have not had to use it for a power outage yet but I am confident it will meet my needs. Overall the experience with Home Depot was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hammer Great features for price
All features I was looking for to use with RV, plus the remote start & stop is nice to use from inside RV. Noise level acceptable, less noise than my last generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rons best one i've owned yet
Wheels and handle went on easy. Added oil and gas then ran for a break in period. Took it with to deercamp during bow season for the first time. It had no problems with powering the 33;camper i have. Microwave,tv,furnace and coffee maker all with no issues. Tested it with A/C and microwave running and it handled them fine. Sound is quieter than the honda 5000 that i have used in the past. I am able to chain it to the tongue and watch tv while in the front bedroom at night.
Excellent product so far and fantastic value compared to what I would have to spend buying one of the other "quiet" units from honda or yamaha.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheDavisFamily Great Generator!
We received our generator quickly. We haven't camped with it yet, but just testing it at home, we love it! The remote start is awesome! No more walking out of the camper with morning hair to start up a generator, hoping nobody sees me! I also like how quiet it is. It isn't as quiet as the "Name Brand, Extra Quiet" generator but it isn't $2000 either! It's way more quiet then the one I have been using for the last 8 years. Overall...fast shipping, great price, great features, surprisingly quieter than your average generator! I can't wait to use it! I am very happy with the purchase!
