Getting mine back.
I've owned my Champion generator for 8 years, and it has been flawless. During the recent storm my house was fine but both my sons houses lost electricity for a few days. I loaned mine to one son, but the other one then called and said he needed it also. Walmart solved the problem. My wife went online, saw the generators listed as available, and ordered two. They were delivered earlier than expected without any shipping charge. I prepped them, fired them up, and delivered them while getting mine back. They are both set for any emergency and mine can stay home. A quality product from a quality retailer.
Best Buy, best performance, best features!!!
Bought this Champion 3500 watt generator and it is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made. I love the remote start when camping. It has more than enough power to run my lights, air conditioner, microwave and outlets all at the same time. Awesome power for my camper. Easy start every time and noise level is nice and quiet compared to other generators. Three year warranty is unbeatable!!! This is THE generator.
Use this while at hunting camp and during power outages. Runs my 8,000 btu portable AC unit perfectly. Love the remote start and push button start. Love the fact that it has wheels and a handle to move it around. Really love everything about this generator.
Everything you need
This has been a great generator! The electric start is amazing and the remote start is awesome! Generator comes with everything you need even a funnel to put the oil in.
Nice compact generator, runs a long time, remote starting
We bought this for the occasional power outages due to wind storms in CT. A lot of trees and branches come down, knocking out the power. We got this smaller size, as we usually just need to run the furnace, fridge and a few lights. We wanted something that would run for a long time on a tank of gas, so we wouldn't need to refill in the middle of the night or run to the gas station every few hours in bad weather. So far, we've just powered it up, run it for few hours and changed the oil as recommended, so we can't comment on emergency usage. However, we really like the features, such as the battery powered remote start, and we like the wheels and handle for mobility. Just push a button, and the generator fires right up, nice. We're setting up the hook-up, with an electrical panel interlock and power inlet box, just need an electrician to actually show up and make the connections. All-in-all I think this generator will suit our emergency power needs nicely, just need a storm to test it.
This is a great generator. The remote control is nice.
I use mine to run my camper it does a great job running it. The hours run on a tank of gas is even better than advertised. The remote control is really nice being able to start and stop from inside is nice. The price was really good a lot better than most. I would buy another one in a second. I would recommend it to anyone.
Bought this for 30AMP RV and storm outages,product is very well built and has nice features: wireless start with remote,pull start and rocker button included,digital readout. Have only tested the unit for a short while,starts right up,manual is very detailed and clear to understand;very pleased with purchase! Definitely will looking at other products by this company.
Very nice product
I need a generator for home backup. Rarely use one but when i do, it has to be easy to start. With a push button start my wife and kids can start it if I'm not home. It has a remote start too, but I really haven't had a use for that.
I like it...
Elevation is a little over 5000ft. I live on a steep hill, and I don't have to run up and down the hill. I'm working about 100ft from the generator, and the remote works perfect. It does hesitate, when I push the off button, like it has to think about for some reason...maybe it has a heat sensor and I'm not giving it enough time to cool down? I ran it yesterday, very cold days/ 30-40s/ for a few hours, off and on and I think it's great...it's already saved me several miles of rough walking. Right now I am running an old, small, craftsman air compressor and an angle grinder. I would give it 5 stars, but it is still new...we'll see how it is after a couple months hooked up to a 2200watt jackhammer...I have a 100ft 10-3 for it that I am and will be using with it. I did everything per manual, and will continue to do so (oil changes, fuel, filters, oil type-maintenance)
Shipping damage but works
Unit arrived with damage from shipping. Small dent and broken battery pole. I needed to use the unit immediately so set everything up per instructions with exception of the battery. Unit is working great.
I would recommend to others and buy this generator again!
Easy reliable starting. Very mobile to move where needed. Have put the generator through break-in hours and have put it under heavy loads for testing. I really am pleased with this generator. I have other Champion outdoor power equipment items. So far very satisfied with all.
This is my 4th Champion Generator!
I have had amazing results with my Champion Generators. One I wore out, worked great till the end. Small one I'm still using. Next big generator was great, but was stolen. Just purchased another big generator. Champion has absolutely great tech support and customer service!!
Easy to assemble. Started easily. A few weeks after I bought it, we lost electric service for 2 and a half days. The generator was easy to move into place and kept our food cold and our coffee got the entire time. The machine ran perfectly straight through the entire outage. Only interruptions were to add fuel, which was rare. Great value!!
Old person living on SSI affords new self starting generator
Here in California the power goes out frequently. My generator is for those occasions. I need an air conditioner to survive the hot days. The frozen food in my refrigerator can use some power as well. Some entertainment devices like my computer and TV would help pass the time away. The generator started right up and runs great! The price was fabulous! I feel more prepared for the unexpected.
Even though I've only used it once to check out the features, it's all it was promised to be. It started immediately on the first try and I ran it for a little over two hours. I plugged in several low wattage items, as the manual stated to do during break in. The generator never stuttered a bit and ran like a Champion! I bought it to use as a back up power source in case of a power failure. I will be using it away from the house to paint my horse fencing with my corded paint sprayer. So far so good. It's appears to be a quality built product.
Great product, great service
When the lights go out, I have basic power for essentials and need not worry. Electric start is like starting my car and generator accepts the load in smooth rotation of appliances. When setting up, l had questions and got immediate response, talking me through the steps to solve my issues. Thank tech support.
This generator has made my life easy.
I'm a full time RVer. I've had several generators over the last few years. This one not only starts with a key fob, I don't even have to go out let alone pull a cord, wondering every time if it will break again before the thing starts. Uses less gas and way less oil than the previous machines. If it keeps up like this we will become old friends.
Would definitely buy again
This a very well made product, easy to start with the remote starter, runs very smooth, are very easy to move around, great product to buy
Battery would not take a charge....DEAD. Besides the battery problem, starts on 1st pull. Very satisfied with generator.
This was one of the best purchases I've made.
I bought this just in case I lost power in my home. I've ran it with 2 freezers and a fridge and it ran like a CHAMPION!!! So far I have no complaints.
