Q: Does this come with a power cord?
by John Demars from New Hampshire on September 05, 2016

A: No, this model does not come with a power cord, but we recommend this power cord for this generator:

Q: BJ's on long island NY has champion generator 7500 watt 9375 that you also sell for 599 dollars you are selling for 849. I would prefer the dual fuel champion is there anything that can be done to equal the price I am aware that duel fuel cost 100.more
by Gary Muhlenforth from New York on June 28, 2016

A: Unfortunately, the prices we have are the lowest we can offer on our website for each item. We are unable to price match at this time.

If you have any additional questions please let us know.

Q: I have a 250 gallon propane tank that I use for a gas furnace. A low pressure regulator is installed on the outside wall. Will this generator operate on this pressure? I believe the pressure to be 11 in. wc
by Clyde from Kentucky on December 17, 2015

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

According to Champion, this generator can be hooked up to a bigger LP tank as long as it is regulated between .33 and .48 PSI.

We do not supply the necessary parts to hook up to a larger LP tank and would recommend you check with a certified plumber and/or LP supplier.

If you want your cake and to eat it too, this model is for you. This dual fuel portable generator from Champion allows you to run on gas or LP fuel. And the best part, they make it really easy for you to toggle between fuel types with fuel selector switch. Watch the video to see!

This model also comes with electric start making it really easy for just about anyone to start up and run during a power outage. 7500 Watts will give you enough to power to cover off a good chunk of your home if... more

Like The Dual Fuel
The generator arrived in good shape and was easy to assemble. I picked this generator because I wanted a dual fuel and the electric start and was pleased to see it also comes with an Intelligauge Display. The generator looks well made and started on the first attempt. My first impression is that this is a very good generator and I would recommend it.

It Kinda Was Delivered On Time
Unit was weary easy to assemble. It started up easily with LP gas all was fine. It doesn't produce power. I have a tech coming out in a week to look at it. You pay your money you take your chances.
Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
William,
If the generator is not producing power, have you tried resetting the GFCI outlets? This generator is designed to shut itself off after 8 seconds if it does not detect voltage production. So if the machine is still running, it is making voltage. Perhaps you should give us a call at 877-338-0999 Monday through Friday, 8:30AM to 5PM PST so that we may assist you further. I believe we can resolve this rather easily.

Thank you,
Champion Power Equipment

Works Seamlessly, Fast Delivery, Excellent Staff
After the nightmare I had with trying to get a big chain store Generac generator, waiting for weeks and then have it show up with a fork lift hole in the bottom and being told I would have to do a new purchase and wait for a refund tying up $4800 on my credit car without a generator, the response from this company was refreshing.

The next week after the order, we transferred the Champion generator from the 18 wheeler to my ATV trailer since it would have been impossible for him to... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store, It Is Dual Fuel Which Means I Don't Have To Use Gasoline

Good Generator & Well Built
Came in great condition. The delivery driver was great and brought it right to the garage. Assembly was easy and straight forward. Hooked it up to a propane tank and started it took a couple of pushes of the start button to fire up, but ran great. Ran some power equipment to give it a test drive, so to speak, and it performed. Good generator and I feel will perform well when an emergency situation arises. It's heavy but what I expected after reading the specs. A bit early to give it a... more

Excellant Machine
Very fast shipping 3 days from Il. to NY..The generator was in perfect shape on arrival..Had a couple of buddies help me unpack the machine and put the wheels and stand on..I poured in the oil attached the battery to the leads, and put in some gas..It started right up and ran smoothly..I tested all the circuits including the one which goes into my transfer switch..Everything went well.Today I attached a propane tank which started and ran just as smoothly..

Very pleased with purchase. Easily assembled if you follow directions. Started with first attempt using gas rather then propane. A bit noisy but that seems to be the only problem.

So Far, So Good With A Couple Of Negatives
I had an electrician install an outdoor 10 circuit transfer box...turned off power to house, and was amazed the entire house (whatever was turned on) worked great....However did have a problem (propane)...put a gauge on the tank which seemed to impair starting it...took the gauge off, and just attached the propane tank directly to the generator, and it started.....However it is louder then any lawnmower that i know off....is there some sort of muffler that can be attached??
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Easy To Store
Cons: Nois, Noisy As Hell Needs A Muffler No Lawn Mower

Well, it did everything it was advertised to do. It is tucked away until needed during a prolonged power outage.

The power output when using propane is considerably less than when using gasoline. That was not emphasized in the literature. Something to consider when buying a duel fuel unit.

Alan,
While there is a difference in the power output when using propane vs gas, it would not be considerably less.

Gas: 7500W Running & 9375W Starting

Propane: 6750W Running & 8400W Starting

Home Back Up Generator
Haven't had to put it in extended use yet, but the dual fuel generator fired up promptly using propane on the first try. So far I'm very pleased with it seems pretty well put together. The unit was delivered on time and the driver was helpful in getting it to the garage. Assembly wasn't too difficult - so far so good. I should be ready for the next power outage...

Delivery was perfect. Delivery driver placed generator in my garage. Assembly was straight forward. Needed a "shorty" screw driver to install battery connections. LPG connection was easy. Generator would not start until I remembered to open the LPG valve. Once started it ran smoothly. I connected various devices to load generator on first run. All worked flawlessly.
