Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Re-Gifted??? 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. November 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 30, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not a 3500 Watt Continuous Generator - only 3000 as per the breaker. The main breaker for this generator is 25 Amps. 25X120=3000. I contacted Champion and they stated "The trip current is different than the rated current. Tripping current is time and temperature dependent. The approximate trip current for this breaker is 29 amps at 100F for one hour." Also be aware that if you want to run off regular household type outlet it has a 20 amp breaker (1800 Watts). You need to purchase an L5-30P to 5-15R (std household) to get more power. I paid $25 for mine. See schematic on Champion's web page. If you can live with less than advertised 3500 continual run Watts it seems OK so far. It's loud but not bad compared to my other generator. The remote is pretty cool. Wheels are small but easy to roll on a hard surface. Haven't tested it with my UPS or Fridge yet. October 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. 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! July 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by overall i am satisfied with this product it is what i expected. I was drawn to this product because it has the outlet that matches my RV plug for easy use and the remote starter allows me to turn on the power from inside the RV. The only negative I have it the unit is pretty loud I wish it could be made more silent. June 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Generator runs great and it just what I wanted. The remote start is where its at! The air breather cover was totally broke apart, it had been hit on the corner of the box it looks like and broke. Probably in shipping but I was not here to receive it to file a claim. The Generator runs everything I need and the remote start is the best option on it. May 19, 2015
