Great Generator Great Price
I have two generators a 4000 watt and a 8000 watt I needed something small to run a parade float. I looked at Honda and they are very proud of them. This generator did the job greatly and it runs pretty quiet for the forth of the price of a Honda of equal wattage.

Great Little Generator
Break-in was carefully monitored, one hour long session and two 30 minute sessions. It performed as it should. It starts very easily and runs smooth. It doesn't use much fuel. It's not too heavy and not excessively loud. Time will tell about long-term reliability, but for now, it's just right for my needs.

4000 Champion Gen.
Got my first CHAMPION GEN several years back. Before starting it, I gave it a good inspection: oil level, and nothing jarred loose. Gassed her up short pull on choke, second pull start every time. EXCELLENT run time, 10 hr. plus med output 10 hr minus maximum output.. Run time very good. Start and run 10 min. every 6 to 8 weeks.

"GEN STOLEN," replaced with another Champion 4000 Electric start, same things apply for this one
Run time, craftsmanship, EXCELLENT! Electric start... more
Pros: Quiet, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

1500wt Champion
I got so tired of small gas lawn tools i.e. gas blower, pole saws, hedge trimmers etc, mixing gas , flooding, hard to start. With 20 acres and a 1/4 driveway on the side of a mountain, I use EZGO utility vehicle to haul tools and get around. Got so tired of loading the backpack blower, trimmers in and out having to crank them ever time and with those small motor one pull too many with the choke on and the equipment will not crank. Picked up this little 1500 watt Champion, it sits in the bed... more

Won't Start
I cannot turn this thing on. It takes a strong man to do it and even then more than 5 pulls on the cord to get it going.
I don't have that kind of strength.
Pros: Price
Cons: Difficult To Use

Jared, the Portable Generator Expert
Product Expert
Susan,
Although most of the portable generators are fairly easy to start there may be a few that are harder for some people than others. I recommend calling the manufacturer to see if there could be a solution to the hard starting and to see if they offer an electric start to add onto the generator. The number to Champion is (877) 338-0999.
