What People Who Bought The Champion 3500-Watt Love About It
“An outstanding performance for the money. I tested this generator on my 33-foot travel trailer and it lived up to expectation powering up the A/C and running the microwave and TV. I compared generator prices at Harbor Freight and the big box hardware stores and the price on this one could not be beat at less than $300. I would advice you to buy the wheel kit as this could be a bit heavy to lug around even being one of the smaller and lighter generators. It is not obtrusively loud as generators generally are. A friend bought one at Tractor Supply (and spend a bit more than Amazon) and he is happy with his. Will it last? Only time will tell. The generator cranks up really easily so that’s a big plus!.”
“I was sceptical about how easy the recoil start was on this generator. But I was astonished. It is very, very easy and starts on the second pull; assuming you remember to turn on the fuel! I made that mistake once. It’s very fuel efficient and while I have used it only twice, it seems to work perfectly. The pull start is in an awkward place. You must be careful not to cut yourself when you pull it. Also, adding oil is difficult. If you know this, it’s easy to work around.”
“I use this generator for my shaved ice trailer. It powers a 13,500 BTU roof A/C, battery charger, chest freezer and hot water heater without issues. It isn’t as quiet as an inverter generator but it’s quiet enough-especially for the cost. We run it in the back of a pickup and that reduces the noise to an acceptable level. I only run ethanol free gas and at over 100 hours it has never failed to start on the first attempt.”
