I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH PRAISES FOR THIS GENERATOR OR ITS PRICE. IT JUST GOT ME THROUGH HURRICANE IRENE. IT RAN CONTINOUSLY FOR 58 HOURS WITH NO PROBLEMS. I HAVE 3 REFRIGERATORS/FREEZERS WHICH I RAN ONE AT A TIME. SO EASY TO START. I MEAN REALLY EASY TO START. MY NEIGHBOR WAS SO IMPRESSED. THE GAS MILEAGE WAS FANTASTIC. I GOT ABOUT 4 GALLONS PER DAY OF CONTINUAL (EXTREME USE). MOST PEOPLE WERE TELLING ME THEIR GENERATORS DO 1 GALLON PER HOUR. I AM SO PLEASED THAT I PURCHASED THIS PARTICULAR GENERATOR. OF COURSE I DON'T HAVE THE WHEELS BUT I HAVE IT IN MY GREENHOUSE AND RUN A 75 FOOT 12 GAUGE ELECTRICAL CORD TO THE HOUSE. THAT WAY THE NOISE IS AWAY FROM MY HOUSE AND I CAN HAVE IT LOCKED UP WHILE IT IS RUNNING.

ONLY ONE NEGATIVE - THE OWNERS MANUAL DOES NOT HAVE THE CORRECT INSTRUCTIONS ON STARTING THE GENERATOR. YOU NEED TO PULL ONCE ON THE CHOKE POSITION AND THE 2 TO 3 TIMES ON THE RUN POSITION. MY GENERATOR STARTS ON JUST ONE PULL ON THE RUN POSITION. YOU DON'T EVEN NEED TO PULL IT ALL THE WAY OUT. IT STARTS BEFORE YOU HAVE EVEN PULLED 2 FEET. BEAUTIFUL GENERATOR!!!

This generator is easy to use, it's lighter than my previous generator, and powers all of the equipment on my rv. Quieter too.

Quiet, Efficient, Dependable

By

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

Bought this unit as a backup to one of my 10K watt units (I have 2) "just in case". It replaces an old Craftsman 3500-watt unit which needed a new carburator, the installed cost of which was darned near the price of this new Champion. It does not come with oil (neither in the engine nor in 1-quart cans). No biggie. Just went to local hardware store and bought a quart. The wheel kit (which I highly recommend) was inexpensive and installed quickly. The unit started with the very first pull. It is CONSIDERABLY quieter than my Craftsman. The voltage output is spot-on at 120V. Couldn't have asked for a better bargain.

Runs very well and is very reliable. This generator fulfills all my needs while dry camping. I added the wheel kit to mine and am very glad to have done so, as it makes moving the generator very easy and effortless.

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

Bought this for emergencies and running tools in the woods. Luckily haven't had an emergency, but runs my saws and other tools great. Starts right up and runs smooth. Hopefully this will continue for years to come.

Very good quality generator for the price.

By 

from Burlington, MA, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I bought this generator for emergency power if we have a snow storm that knocks out power. Especially to run the furnace, the refrigerator, the TV and DVD player and a couple lights. It is to replace a ETQ TG3000 generator that broke. Portability (weight) was important too me as I need to move it to a ventilated area when in use. I added wheels to the generator for that purpose. I was quite easy to get started and started up on the second pull. The pull was very easy as described. Everything seem to work as specified although I have not run it under a heavy load as yet. Looking at the generator, it seems to be sturdier and better built than the ETQ TG3000. Also, I believe it is quieter than my old one. I was surprised how quiet this generator was. The customer service is definitely better that my old one as there is a number to call displayed in a number of places but I did not have to use it. Also, I believe ETQ went out of business shortly after bought it.
