Lots of features and fully capable for Emergency Generator needs. Starts quickly and produces output advertised. Easy setup and handle provides great portability.
I paided for a cover for the generator and never received it and can’t seem to get any kind of response. I wouldn’t recommend do business with this company.
So I bought this back in June, hadn't needed it until now so all I had done was assemble and put the oil in it. I figured I was set for hurricane IDA. Had my old generator which started on 2nd pull, post Katrina purchase.
So I went and got fresh gas and a bottle of propane, put gas in generator, tried to start it wouldn't start, so okay, I will try propane, tried to fire one time backfired, nothing else. I could smell propane though so I know it was getting fuel. Also verified had gas to carburetor bowl
Only was I have got it to run is with starting fluid. So here I am a storm in the gulf and $1,000 generator that doesn't run and of course tech support is closed on Saturday and Sunday. If this was a local company.myself and this piece of crap would be setting at the front door when they opened back up. I have probably set up 5 or six generators in my life time of different makes, first one ever that didn't run.
Original post on 7/11/2021 Nice generator as far as I can tell, though I haven't used it yet. Unpacking and putting it together was simple, just wheels and front stand to put on, add oil and fuel. Only thing is seeing I ordered the Natural Gas kit installed, to make it TRI-FUEL, I wish I had just ordered the Champion factory Tri-Fuel model instead. I feel I was mislead by description of kit. It said installed by factory before shipping with easy fuel switch between fuel source. There is no fuel switch directly for natural gas, only between LP and reg gas. The kit is the same as I good have installed and done a better job. Shipping to Fedx freight dock was great.
If you want a Tri-fuel instead of dual fuel, I would suggest ordering the Champion 8000 Watt Tri Fuel Portable Generator with Electric Start and CO Shield | 100416, instead of this one and adding the Tri-Fuel Kit. Just a couple dollars more and much simpler to use, and no extra regulator. hanging off the side. This one is like 1068.00 plus 229.00 for kit, the 100146 Tri-fuel is like 1368.00. Just to much trouble to ship it back.
I have a few generators, and only one is not a Champion and was purchased somewhere else other than Factory Pure. Factory Pure’s customer relation is awesome. On my first refurbished generator, the gas tank was rusted inside. They sent me a new one immediately within days. When I call or email them, the response time is awesome. They are knowledgeable and patient. They offer the best warranties and stand by them. This is my place for all my generators and smaller combustible engines and equipment. All my generators from FP work just fine and my smaller one pushes my entire home. I can’t imagine how power I have in the bigger one. Champion is the champ in generators.
