Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well; issues with propane in cold weather I ran the generator through break-in period on a cold weather day using only propane fuel . Unfortunately, the performance was less than ideal; it stopped several times likely because the cold temp reduced the pressure in the propane tank. Called the support line, they were helpful and suggested I use a 'blanket' or warmer to keep the tank warm on cold days. I am disappointed at this additional expense. I intend to run this primarily on propane to avoid the regular maintenance required for gas. Other than that issue, the generator started easily and functioned as advertised. Again, primarily issue is cold weather performance with propane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully loaded backup for home This Champion generator powered my refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker, TV, cable modem and WiFi, a few lamps and phone/laptop chargers during Hurricane Irma. My neighbor also plugged into this generator and enjoyed electricity during the power outage. I like how I can use propane if gas is not available, increasing this generator's availability and uptime. This is a large unit but easy to move around with the wheels and handle bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dual Fuel for the money Being hurricane prone here in the panhandle of Florida, we need a dependable power source with a duel fuel capability as gas stations normally sell out of gasoline. However, propane is normally plentiful. This generator offers both options and can switch between the two with ease. Generator was exceptionally easy to setup strait out of the box. Setup took no more than 10min. I used a full synthetic oil as it cover all temperature ranges. Hooked it up to a propane tank and fired up on third pull (two prime pull on choke, one pull in run position. Ran smooth for over an hour running a window unit, a refrigerator, a freezer, a few lamps, and direct tv. Generator never bogged at any time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Generator Ever I couldn't wait to get it home and open it up and try it.! When I did, the first thing I tried was the propane mode, Fired right up first pull, Then tried the Gas mode, Fired right up second pull.! This Gen with its cold start technology is awesome and pretty much makes other generators far behind in ease of use. I ran a set of lights, 2- Ice Cream freezers, a hotdog steamer, and a cash register, all of of it for 8 hours straight and it never even once breathed hard. Not only do I recommend it, but I'm going to buy another one just like it. Thank you Champion for a reliable hard working machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator Bought this generator for the wattage and dual fuel capabilities to have power in outage situations. After getting it home and setting it up, gave it a try. It started on the first pull, I let it run for a while, then put a small load on it. It worked great. The next week, I tried it out again and put about 4000 watt load on it, it ran everything perfectly with no issues. I've only used it on propane so far, and that's all I plan to unless I need to use gas sometime. I haven't needed it yet for an actual power outage, but have tested it several more times, and works great every time. Great product, I'm glad I made this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts right up on either fuel We bought the only generator we could find, due to PG&E scare, still available from Graingers. It seems we were lucky because it works great and looks like all we'll need when the next "PG&E BLACKOUT" occurs. It starts right up using either fuel (propane or gas). It does seem a bit noisy, but we're happy to have it as we have a freezer full of expensive meats from Snake River Farms, and Stempel Creek Ranch and we'd be wiped out if they thawed on us sooner than we can eat them. Shame on PG&E for causing this inexcusable dilemma, and Yahoo on our new Champion Dual Fuel Generator!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power outage encouraged me to quit thinking and start buying Heavy snow and wind took down our power lines along with tens of thousands of others. Since we live out in the country, our area was fixed last because of the population levels. I'd researched the dual fuel generators because I have a 5th wheel travel trailer and I have two large tanks of propane. So if I don't have any gasoline, I will usually have propane. The only situation I encountered was that at this high elevation, we lose about 20% of the wattage. Didn't know that until I plugged in some heaters and kept tripping the circuit. But after two days of no power, it kinda changes your mind on whats important. Would buy again, and probably a larger generator to compensate for the loss of power from elevation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing's a beast! I bought this for camping and for a back up during a power failure at home. Thankfully I haven't had a power outage at home yet but have used it for dry camping. This thing's a beast! Starts with literally 1-2 pulls. Runs strong and can run my air conditioning in the camper even with having lights on and running the TV. It's quieter than most other generators I've heard. I haven't yet tried to use the propane fuel. It comes with all the attachments needed. The quick start guide had it up and running in no time.

One person said it was loud but I need to know the actual db level. Thank you

Asked by: Golfing Cowboy
Noise level is 74 dBA from 23 feet, which is a bit louder than a vacuum.

Where is the R V 30 amp conection?

Asked by: Anonymous
This generator does not have a TT-30, 30amp RV receptacle. You have to use an L14-30 adapter like <a href=https://www.campingworld.com/camco-power-grip-generator-adapter-30a>SKU#42425</a> to hook up a 30amp RV to this generator.

Is the dual fuel really worth it? I have a 250 lb tank at the house and I'm worried it will burn through that in 65 hours; roughly. What are your thoughts? Thanks!!! -Todd
