Customer Questions & Answers

when it is not in full load does it slow down to conserve?

YOUR QUESTION – THIS WAS SENT ON 3/6/14 when it is not in full load does it slow down to conserve? THE ANSWER yes, it will idle down YOUR QUESTION – THIS WAS SENT ON 3/4/14 when it is not in full load does it slow down to conserve? THE ANSWER No. The engine runs at one speed which is required to generate 120v. So the question is which one is CORRECT????????
Asked by: raider
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.

Asked by: OutbackJack
I press the start button from inside of my cabin and it starts the generator inside my shed 50 ft' away. I think its advertised to go to 75' ft. but i cant say for sure.

is it quiet like the yamaha's for camping

Asked by: nozetta
It's not as quiet as a high dollar Honda or Yamaha at approx. 3 times the price, but has a very tolerable sound level. It is quieter than any other economy brand generator I have heard.

3,500/4,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Remote is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 146.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product was delivered in great conditions. Assembly was easy and required a few basic tools.... This product was delivered in great conditions. Assembly was easy and required a few basic tools. It started well with the remote control. I leave in Colorado at an elevation of more than 6,000 feet. The manual said that: 1. We lose 3 1/2 % of efficiency per 1,000 feet, or about 20% at 6,000 feet, which is a big inconvenience. 2. With a low atmospheric pressure, the generator has trouble to start and stay with a high choke position. Calling Champion customer service, they confirmed that this equipment was designed for sea level conditions. So, I brought back the generator to Home Depot and they reimburse nicely my purchase. I recommend this product only for people living in low elevation, less than 3,500 feet. If you live at 3,500 feet, you need to purchase a specific part, remove the carburetor, place this new part inside and reassemble. Not easy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good generator shipping was prompt, generator was delivered on time to my neighbors house ( ups not home depots fault) put in oil and hooked up battery and it fired right up. I ran it for 5 hours and changed oil as directed in instructions. We then took it on 4 day trip and ran our toyhauler with a/c and all appliances. We did not try microwave and a/c at same time but we are not the microwave type anyway. Generator was flawless all weekend, 12 to 14 hours depending on load. It is not as quiet as a Honda but at the mud park it doesn't matter, besides I can buy three more on top of this one for price of 1 Honda 3000. Very satisfied so far.

After putting all together, which was quite painless, I used the remote control and it started immediately. Power was sufficient for our needs. Moving the machine with the pull handle and wheels was not a chore. Recommend buying the custom cover, especially if you're putting it in the garage for storage or covered back porch. I use 92 octane pure, no ethanol. Prior to storage ensure carburetor is empty of gas and pour some Stabile into the tank and give it a few cranks. That will make it easier to start the next time it's needed. By doing this your carburetor won't gum up...hopefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive on all levels. After owning a different brand generator for a few months( motor seized and repairs cost more than I payed) I quickly learned more research should have gone into finding the right and reliable generator. From the start this generator and this company has been impressive. I did weeks of research and all roads brought me to this company and product. It came well packed and packed with quality. While I probably will never use the remote start but the ease of flipping a few switches gives me a piece of mind that if I am not around to set the gen up my wife can start it and run it into the house with no problems. While I hope I never have to use it the new three year warranty is a excellent piece of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Electric start generator I had this item shipped to my local Home Depot since I work , it arrived 4 or 5 days early which was great nothing was damaged. Got it home and put the wheels and legs on and oil in then gassed it up connected the battery turned the switch and gas on and pressed the start button on the remote and guess what ..... it started right up. I'm very pleased with this generator ,I connected it to my camper and ran everything in it without any problem and could not hear it running outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring winter on... Good looking machine. After reading the easy instructions I turned on all required systems, used the remote and it turned over immediately. The battery operation is a winner. Also, a fairly quite generator. I bought two add ons...a substantial custom cover and the three prong extension cord. I feel more secure knowing I have this system if we lose power. It will provide all the power I'll need for our house and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Real nice generator Be sure to add oil even though the dipstick has oil on it. They only fill oil to test5 engine before shipping units. Engine will not start until oil is added. Easy to pull start. I have not been able to remote start with battery. Battery may be dead after being stored in warehouse before selling. I need to run engine to see if battery takes a charge. Other than that the unit was easy to install wheel kit and handle.
