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

Love It
Got it to prepare for Florida weather-- assembly easy - broke it in as specified - then put it away till hurricane IRMA.
Started right up and ran whole house and 1 10000 btu bedroom unit- made mistake of not having the GenTent rain guard So was limited to wait till rain over and had to stop if rain re started.

Just ordered the Gentent so i have it for next time-- especially since in FL we often lose power for blown transformers in the hottest weather. Using propane makes it easy to have... more

A Real Champion
I have only tested this generator, not actually used it. I can tell you that this is a well designed and well built product, solidly put together. The dual fuel and electric start features are especially important for my purposes in providing oxygen to a COPD person. I am highly impressed so far and very happy with the quality of this product. I feel confident that when needed, Champion will perform like, well, a champion. I would not hesitate to recommend this product and would have given... more

Champion Over Irma
Arrived on time as promised, just two days before Irma struck in South West FL. I lost power for 40 hrs, I managed to get 5 hours on propane tanks and 8 hours on gas. I noted that the generator ran smoother on gas.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, I'd Buy It Again

Great Generator
Generator arrived quickly (ordered on Saturday and received on Friday, note that Monday was a holiday), delivery was great. Generator cranked up immediately. I like that we have 2 options for fuel, runs great with both. We have installed a a switch so that we have easy hookup to the house. Seems plenty big for emergency use. Have not used it for an extended period of time yet.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy, pretty loud

"Only concern was that when we first had the generator on we had it sitting on the lawn, we only ran it for 15 minutes just to check it out. We noticed that the grass underneath had discolored from green to tan, so we are wondering if it is safe to operate on the grass. I did email Generators Direct but have not received a reply yet, it's been a few weeks. Just want to make sure its not going to be a safety hazard if running while sitting on the grass...."

Mary,
Air-cooled portable generators produce heat around the unit, and normally this won't cause any issues regardless if the generator is on a paved surface or if it's on grass.

Excellent Machine Of High Quality
This came well packaged and driver put it inside the door of my shop. Unpacked, added oil and gas, hooked up battery, and it fired up at first turn. Excellent machine. A little noisy but it is a big unit. It will run all needed electrical units needed in my home. The last major power outage lasted 7 days. I have gas and propane available.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, High Quality

Great Product.
Shipping was excellent. Arrived on time and was very well packaged. I have not had to use it yet but I tested it out with both gas and propane and both worked great. The electric start is really a nice feature. This is a very easy generator to operate and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering buying a generator.

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.

Happy
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

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
