Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 by one great generator works great cant hear it with air conditioner running did miss place my remote start controller any idea where to get a replacement October 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 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
