Asked by Hek April 17, 2021

If you are interested in installing it to a transfer switch to operate your home, please consult with a licensed electrician to allow them to assist you with this application. The 12V battery needs to be charged every 2-3 weeks if the generator is not frequently used. It can be charged by using a 1.5A or a 2.0A trickle charger. This generator is only available in black and yellow at this time. The weight of this item is 203.0 lbs. Yes, this model is capable of operating two 15,000 BTU air conditioners in an RV/camper. Thank you.

can a welder be ran on the champion 9375/7500

Asked by geeves March 29, 2021


what is the total harmonic distortion of this generator

Asked by jim February 27, 2021

Champion portable generators will output an industry standard THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) rating of about 12%-20% depending on load applied. They will produce a sine wave, not a modified or square wave. This is perfectly acceptable for running common commodities found in your home such as TVs, computers, your appliances, etc. THD is a measure of the deviation of a sine wave from a "perfect" sine wave. All electricity, including line electricity, has measurable THD. If you have a specific item that requires less than 5% THD such as a UPS style battery backup, a pellet stove or high efficiency furnace control board, we recommend purchasing a Champion Inverter Generator (sizes from 1600W to 3500W); Champion Digital Hybrid Series Open Frame Inverter (sizes from 3500W to 8750W) or a Champion Home Standby Generator (range from 8.5KW to 14KW); all units provide less than 5% THD. Please consult you specific appliance manufacturer to determine if the appliance requires low THD (less than 5%) to operate properly.

Oil fill easy
We purchased this product to maintain and run power equipment on our yard were power was not available. It cranked with ease right out of the box. Just fill will oil and gas and connect battery and remove the shipping brackets and you ready to get to work. Putting the oil in was so easy with the supplied funnel. Plus it has a keyless start so I can crank it from the truck. Great unit.
by Bolles1024
Easy, Efficient, Quiet, and works like a CHAMP!
Bought this to power the home essentials during power outages. It is super easy to use, efficient and quiet, while inside or even outside it is quiet which is super nice. It has served us well twice so far and I forsee this serving us for many more years to come. Great product line and would buy again! PS. I also bought the cover which fit like a glove and keeps it all dry.
by David
Absolutely the best!!
We recently had a power outage and this kept us outta the dark! Easy to use, and quieter than most generators. Would definitly recommend this to anyone in need of a Generator
by Budman
What a lifesaver!
A terrible ice storm came through our town and power was expected to be out for atleast 2 days so I ventured out and got this generator. I fell in love instantly! It was super easy to use and start that we had heat in no time. Will definitely recommend!
by Huskerz24
Super impressed for the price I paid!
I just purchased this little generator yesterday as we travel across the US in our 5th wheel. I have been using a Miller welding machine to power it but figured I need a generator and found this one at Cabela's for a steal!!! I also live in La so a generator is a great asset to have during hurricane season! This machine is lightweight and was easy for my wife and I to hook up on our cargo rack behind the camper. It powered our a/c and tv for 8 hours at a rest stop lastnight and I am still surprised that it is way quieter than I imagined it would be. My camper friend recommended this brand and ao far we are satisfied. Now just need to buy the cover for it.
by Jake B
I like this product
I bought this because I have an older champion that still runs great. I didnt want to carry my old one back and forth to the trailer so i bought a second one to have at home. Got it for a good price started first pull and ran like a top. Havent had this one running too much but i believe it will be as good as my older 4000 watt unit
by mattpee
Great home Gennerator, enough power to get you out the storm
Looked a long time for a generator to have in case of a power outage. Living in south Florida being prepared is a most. The Champion model #100559 more than fit the bill and the necessity. After putting oil and gas the unit was easy to start, I ran it for about 5.5 hrs I was able to pugged the tv, cable box, Blu-ray and the kitchen fridge all at once the generator had minimum stress. I also ran the microwave with the tv's no problem. well built and easy to understand instructions are just a few of the outstanding features of this unit. Champion has been in business for a long time, the warranty and quality is the reason they will stay there.
by J.figueroa
Great generator at an affordable price
I was in the market for an affordable yet powerful generator and this definitely fit the bill. No problem running a refrigerator, sump pump, lights, and fans at once. Simple set up and easy to use. I may have underestimated the weight though; I recommend ordering a wheel kit rather than attempting to lug it around. Great purchase!
by TKlaus
Great quality, easy to use! Would buy again for sure.
As a first time camper trailer owner, I wasn't sure what kind of generator i would need, so I called my local dealer and they suggested an appropriate size. I've never really been familiar with power equipment and was unsure if I would be able to operate the generator as I have never used one before. After speaking to a few fellow campers, I decided to purchase a Champion and i'm really happy with it. The price was great, and the quality is too! It starts on the first pull every time and does exactly as expected. We're happy campers! Thank you CHAMPION!
by Northlander91
