This is a mini review for the Champion 3500 watts generator. This specific one comes with a 120/240 switch which is great. Check out a very similar model on amazon: goo.gl/MRXpJ.

The likes:

  • Relatively quiet. (68db)
  • Good fuel consumption – 3 hours/gal  (12 total at 50% load)
  • Light.  About 98lbs.
  • Well constructed.  Powder coated frame.
  • 240v capable, which means that with a twist plug splitter like this, you would be able to use the entire output with regular plugs. If you get the other model like the 46515 get the following plug:  Camco 55233 RV 30M/15F Amp PowerGrip Adapter.
  • Reputable company.  Really good reviews online from people who had to get service.  The company stands behind their product.
  • Affordable!  I think at the $300 range price it’s a bargain.

 

By the way, I recommend that you use regular 30w oil for the first 5-10 hours (that’s if you’re in climate warmer than 50) and then after use a 5w-30w full synthetic oil like mobil1.  (you want to break in the engine with the lower grade oil, the synthetic is too slick for it to break in properly)
