Preformed as Claims, December 11, 2011 By WL (NJ)
It started easily and performed as claimed. The generator appears well built compare to others in this price range. Noise level is moderate. It would be ideal, if it has 220v outlet. I give it a 4 stars for meeting my expectation.
Works like a champ, December 11, 2011 By Daniel J. Kenny
t on a Monday afternoon and it arrived on friday. Standard shipping. Took about 15 minutes to set up. Putting oil in is a little difficult, but no big deal. Wheel kit makes it easy to move around. Puts ol and gas in and after 2nd pul started up. Great machine. A piece of me wishes I would loose power to see this machine work at it's best. Just having it gives me piece of mind.

Champion 3500/4000w Generator - a perfect choice!, December 7, 2011 By Dan "Dan" (Putnam County, NY)
After experiencing multiple power outages in Putnam County, NY (2 to 3 times a year), I decided it was time for a generator. After viewing many reviews and doing cost comparisons I decided to purchase the Champion 3500/4000. I figured that I would need to run my boiler for heat (1200w), refrigerator(1500w), a few lights (50w - using florescent bulbs is great), and a TV (130w - 55" LED Sony). After viewing the watt requirements and doing some quick calculations I knew I needed at least a 3,000w etc... Thus, the 3500/4000 seemed like a perfect fit. Needless to say I am extremely happy with my choice. After utilizing the generator a few times it more than paid for itself (1 refrigerator full of food loss is more than the cost of this generator). I just wish I purchased a generator a few years back!!! For under $400's I have fully protected my house from power loss. Also, being a smaller generator (the guys at home depot suggested a 6000watt + generator - it's simple just do the math and you will know what is really required) is perfect because it is also portable enough that you can throw in the back of a car.
The only added expense you will need to pick up for this generator is the Twist Cables (L5-30P to regular outlets (5-20r's - I went with a 3' split)) if you want to take advantage of the full 3500/4000w operating capabilities. The single 5-20r located on the unit can only provide up to 2000w. You will need to use either the L5-30p or RV outlets to obtain the full 4000w capabilities. Again, really the perfect choice for my needs and clearly without busting my budget. Hope you find this helpful!
Champion Gas Powered Generator, 4,000 Watt 4 cycle, November 25, 2011 By RB
This generator was purchased for emergency use only when our power goes off, which doesn't happen often but does on rare occasions. For that reason, it has not been used as yet, but we were very happy with its size & the way it started off immediately.
We weren't pleased with the way UPS delivered it by just putting it on our front porch without knocking on the door or asking where we wanted it, which required my husband to get the hand truck & moving the generator down two sets of steps, two steps each, an incline & then to the area we want it.
We also ordered a "large" cover by mistake, which is too large for this generator, but will do.
Fantastic generator at a great price, November 16, 2011 By rocklayer2
I received the generator on time and set it up folowing the quick set up guide. First drained the little bit of oil that was in the moter and then filled with 10w30 oil. Then I started the generator and it started on the second pull! It was very quite compared to my old generator. I am a contractor and sometimes need to run a 15 amp electric air compressor on jobs and my old generator couldn't handle the startup of the electic motor. The new champion generator powered it with no problem and was even able to power a 12 amp saw with the compressor running. I also purchased the 30 amp twist lock to regular plug adapter from amazon. I am super happy with the generator and would strongly recommend it to any one looking for an inexpensive but powerful generator.

Nice generator, November 13, 2011 By Gwyneth G. Hannaford "3500+ book owner and gr... (Kittery, ME USA)
I was able to pick mine up from someone near by who underestimated their needs so we will be set for the next (too frequent) outage. Good manual but missing some needed info in the parts list: no part number for the oil drain plug or the plastic dip stick. These are two parts that can get lost or for the dip stick can break. In fact the manual exploded diagram has no parts listed for the engine, except the engine. We could not find this info on Champions web site either. Other than that excellent manual Champion.
Follow up. An email answer from Champion tech support provided the necessary part numbers and schematic for the engine. I would recommend everyone ask for these pages.
Well worth it. Pleasantly surprised!, November 8, 2011 By NJ Devs "Jersey Johnny" (VA USA)
Unit fired right up. Powered all items in my 31.5ft travel trailer with no problem. I did not power the AC and M-wave simultaneously as I would not expect to do that during normal usage. The electric water heater, fridge, and AC all ran with no issues. The unit does drop some RPM when AC turns on but quickly recovers. Originally thought it was loud but for 375.00 .... cmon....lets be real. Very surprised that its not really that loud at all. Cant hear it from inside the house and its no louder than the AC unit of an adjacent trailer. Put it this way, with my trailers AC unit running, I cant hear it and its right outside my trailer. Very happy! Glad I bought it.
