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!!!

great generator at a great price

By

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

Used it right away for a week long RV trip. Started right up and easy pull. Easily a 5 star rating if just a little quieter but I was not concerned with the db level.

Great price, Good power!

By

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

A lot of wattage for such a great price! Bought it for back-up and battery charging for dry camping, runs absolutely everything in the trailer! Generator hardly knew the a/c was on. Oh and did I mention the GREAT price...

This generator has the requirements I was looking for. I can run my camping trailer, charge the battery for my drone and it is quieter than other generators this size.

Smooth and Quiet

By 

from Howell, MI, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

Recently had an amazing windstorm that knocked out power to over 800,000 - some people were without power for 5-plus days. We have a whole-house generator that runs most important circuits, so we were OK. Why buy this then? Several reasons: I wanted a portable, small-to-medium-sized, stand-alone generator of about 3500w to run a microwave for cooking (not on the whole-house genny), for my barn, as a backup for our sump pump, and perhaps most importantly. to lend to friends/family members who might need one during the next calamity. This generator was delivered in perfect shape. I easily attached the mobility kit (wheels and handle - highly recommend!...this gen is heavy!) Added oil (actually took a bit less than .6 qt as required), gas and....it fired up on second pull. Smoothed out within seconds and ran perfectly. Surprisingly quiet for such a reasonably priced model - could be used for tailgating. I also bought the 25-foot 30 amp power cord so I could attach multiple 120v extension cords. This also has an RV-ready 30 amp receptacle. Can't think of a thing that has disappointed me so far - appears to be very good quality. What you should already know - NEVER run a generator indoors (even in an open garage) or connect a generator to your electrical panel unless you install a transfer panel also. I'm no survivalist, but I do believe an aging power infrastructure and changing weather patterns make having a backup power option a very good idea.

Like the size and power

By 

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

We live full time in a RV and need a generator in case of a power outage. This model will work nicely. Put in the oil, added the gas and after a few pulls started and ran great.

very reliable

By 

from Neskowin, OR, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

This is the second of these I have purchased. I was so pleased with the operation of the first one I decided to do it again. They start with the first pull nearly every time. I would most certainly recommend this unit to anyone interested in reliability.

Good, straight forward, generator

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

Considering as I purchased this as an emergency back up for some home appliances, I haven't had a chance to use it for its intended purpose. But, from running a load on it to break it in, so far it has performed as advertised. I would recommend this to anyone, so far.

Rv generator

By 

from Shepherd, MI, United States

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

After much research I decided to buy this model to run my rv at hunting camp. I love how it's rv ready with the 30a plug slot and also strong enough to run my ac. It's pretty quiet considering it's not a suitcase generator. The price was right and suited my needs.

High Quality Generator

By

Comments about Champion Power Equipment Generator 3500 Watt:

I took this out last weekend and worked like a charm. Ran my RV AC and fridge no problem. Very happy with it. Bought a wheel kit with it and installed it in about 30 mins.
