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!!!

Solid Unit

By 

from Waubay, SD, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I've used this off and on for the last year to power tools while working on some property that doesn't have power yet and has worked great. South Dakota just had a nasty ice storm that had the power out for 5 days and this thing ran non-stop for all 5 days as well as a short 10 hour outage we had a few days later. Great unit!

Runs everything I need!

By 

from Devils Lake, ND, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I bought this generator to power 2 of my ice houses, I run a total of 8 underwater camera's, all hooked up to 24" TV monitors. Each house has a 500 watt heater for warmth. This generator sits outside all day in -20 temps up here in Northern ND. and starts up with no problems. I am building 4 more ice houses and will purchase 2 more of these generators to power them.

Great Generator Excellent Value

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I bought this almost 9 years ago for a trip to FL with my then new travel trailer. Thought it would work a few times and I would have to chuck it. WRONG!!! This generator has been used a few times every summer to power everything on my 31' travel trailer and powered the house through a few power outages. While you have to be mindful of loads I would plug up frig, downstairs freezer, sump pump, TV and entertainment system and a few lights. One first outage a neighbor was standing in front of my house mad and asked me why I had electricity and no one else did. I looked at my house and it had lights on and TV you could see through windo. I explained I had a generator and next outage I heard a few more running.

Unbelievable !!!!! Must read this!!!

By 

from Saskatchewan Canada

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I've use 0-30syn oil in mine. -30 out ice fishing starts every time. Lost it off trailer at 60mph still runs. Leave it in hot sun screaming away no issues then drove over it with big John Deere tractor with 4000lbs in the bucket. Both front and rear tires ran it over. Squished it flat! I bent frame back straight a little 2nd pull it started! Still going strong I'm tryin to kill it so I can buy new one but can't KILL it! One word AWSOME it's loud but reliable!!!

A quiet powerful generator.

By 

from Indiana, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

After the break in period of 5 hrs I changed the oil & loaded this up for a camping trip. I filled it up with gas & started it and it ran out of gas after 12hrs! That's amazingly economical! I only used it at approximately 25-30% load though. I am very happy with it! It always starts and it is much quieter than I expected. A little heavier than I anticipated too but all in all a good little generator!
