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!!!

Pretty good generator

Unit did good. Did find it difficult to fuel with the fill opening below the end rail. Better buy a good funnel. Also do not rely on the fuel gauge for anything other...Read complete review

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

We had one identical for about 5 yrs. and never gave us any trouble . I just got into bowfishing and been using it to power all my lights and trolling motor . It's not to loud but has plenty of power for what I use it for!! So I just bought a second one to keep on the boat all the time and am looking forward to some great bowfishing with it !!

Easy start, runs great.

By 

from San Tan Valley, AZ, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I bought the 46596 model 3500W generator (4000W peak) a couple months ago and have used it about 10 hours now over several different days. It starts very easily and almost always on the first pull. It warms up fast and runs very steady. It is louder than I had hoped, but that is not a deterrent. I am using it at about 6,100 feet above sea level and per the manual had to change the carburetor main jet. It was supplied at no charge by Champion after a quick phone call to their tech dept. However, I had problems with fuel leaking out around the float bowl. It took at least four times before I could get the gasket to seal properly to prevent gas leakage. That is the biggest complaint I have - the very thin, flimsy gasket around the bowl. Only one other suggestion for the engineers would be to design the frame to not interfere with the oil fill location. Overall, I am very pleased with the generator and would not hesitate to recommend it. For the price, a good value.
