Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gadgetman Very Surprized at the Quality for a low price generator.
I spent hours looking for a invertor generator and I was ready to purchase a Honda 2000iu which only provides 1800 watts of continues use. I came across this Champion and was surprised at the ratings. I even called there Tech support and had a person on the line, clear English speaking Knowledgeable person. I was sold at that point. Granted I know it is not a Honda but for my use of 100-200 hours a year I could not pass up trying the Champion. It has been great starts on 2nd pull since I turn of the fuel after my last use. Great Buy I recommend it. Walt

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Trailblazer Solid Generator - works great at high elevation
Got this three weeks ago and took it on its first tour of duty to Payson Lakes Campground (about 8,000 feet). Performed very well. Was able to start up and run 15,000 BTU AC on 34' Trailer while running fridge. (Had to switch off AC to run the microwave) Kept the AC running in 90 degree heat all day, and really surprised me on gas consumption.
A couple of pointers... don't use economy mode with a heavy load. It jumped around like a tasmanian devil when I "experimented" with economy mode while running AC.
Starts up really easily, one or two pulls. No remote start...first world problem...
Provides good power to electronic devices... charged two iphones and a macbook with no issues. A little noisier than I had expected, but not bad when pointing the exhaust port away from the trailer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ArtB Great Product
I own a small mobile detailing business, I purchase this generator primarily for the inventor technology and quiet operational features. This generator is remarkable quieter than my 12 year old generator it replaces, I am pleased with its performance. I have read several reviews that state the generator is hard to start once it has already been running. I have found when shutting the generator off pull the choke out and do not use the on/off toggle switch, leaving the toggle switch in the on position, when ready to start simply push the choke in and usually one pull will start the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PawPaw Excellent choice for RV dry camping
Received the generator in perfect condition and on time. From the time we opened the box it has started on the very first pull. On a trip from Texas to Michigan and back in our 9 year old travel trailer, we stopped in several rest areas overnight and used the generator to power our 13,500 BTU A/C with no problem. For the first A/C compressor start up it had to be off Eco mode (it may have needed to warm up), after that it would cycle with the A/C in Eco mode. If I could ask for any change it would be a slightly larger fuel tank. Runtime on a warm night with the A/C cycling in Eco mode was about 6.5 hours. We would have liked to have seen 8 hours or more. While not quite as quiet as a Honda, it is perfectly satisfactory for our needs. You can barely hear it inside the RV.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mongrel13 Perfect for budget buyers who still need the job done
Took this out memorial weekend. Very quiet. We were surprised that it was at the end of the trailer and we were right around the corner next to the trailer sitting. It was running on high and we were able to talk and hear in normal voices. Didnt get warm enough to try with the air yet. Ran for 5 days off & on and only used 3 gallons of gas. Runs microwave tv dvd all at once no problem. Very happy. 2nd Champion purchase. Also own big 4000 champion. Never had any problems with it either.
