Item Information

The Champion Power Equipment 42432 1400W Multipurpose Portable Generator is the perfect "What if?" generator when you're in a pinch or need "just enough" power such as RV use, camping, tailgating, boating, hunting, weekend trips, family vacations and small jobs around the house. The generator produces 1800 starting watts and 1400 running watts. This unit also makes a great solution during an emergency to power a few essential items you need in a power outage: lights, microwave, fan, TV, modem/router, cell phone charger, etc. (Note: this unit is not recommended for emergency home backup for powering air conditioners, stoves, furnaces or sump pumps.) The 1400W Multipurpose Portable Generator operates at 65 dBA from 23 ft. and has a run time of up to 10 hours on a full tank of gasoline at 50% load. The generator features V-Guard, a built-in surge protector which protects your appliances from any spikes in voltage above a safe threshold, as well as Cold Start technology which optimizes the generator to start easily in cold weather. The generator is portable and comes in a durable steel frame. The 1400W Multipurpose Portable Generator comes with a 120V 20A household outlet (5-20R). The unit also comes with a voltmeter: displays power output from the generator. The 1400W Multipurpose Portable Generator is powered by a 80cc Champion single-cylinder OHV engine with a 1.5 gal. fuel tank, 0.4 qt. oil capacity (recommended 10W-30) and automatic low oil shut-off sensor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little generator. We bought this one to replace the one we had for camping. It started with 3 pulls the very first time. It ran for 10.5 hours straight on a full tank of gas with no problems. We used it to power a box fan and small Dorm refrigerator.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Motor great, customer service TERRIBLE I bought this little generator 5 years ago to run a fridge at my camp in the event of a power outage, which it performed admirably. This year, I start it (and it starts with one pull) and no voltage. This was after sitting over a few months. Over 5 hours troubleshooting it and 4 calls to Champion's "customer service" in which they were supposed to return my call twice and never did, I simply gave up. Their "troubleshooting" procedure has at least one mistake in it as well. Sorry...I'll never buy another Champion product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved me in a bind My main need for a generator is for power outages, having a sump pump in my basement, which receives a lot of water in a storm, and having 3 refrigerators. During a recent storm and power outage, the generator I had wouldn't even start. I knew my local Tractor Supply carried Champion generators as I was looking to replace the current one I had due to it's lack of reliability. I bought my new Champion Generator in a hurry and I couldn't be more pleased. The generator started out of the box on the second pull, and just in time. I have started and used it since then, both times starting and operating flawlessly. I have even bought a second Champion Generator for my brother. I am very happy with my purchase and the peace of mind it provides.

Im trying to use two 4ft. flourescent lights with this generator. One is an older one with F40 bulbs, the other is brand new and uses 32w T8 bulbs. My problem, the older light flickers and will not burn constant, the new light works perfect. Suggestions? 

Asked by: Camino82
The older bulbs may be more sensitive to fluctuation in frequency. The engine is mechanically governed at 3,600 RPM. This means it revs up hits the limiter and bounces back slightly. With a very light load on the generator, this fluctuation may be noticeable in your lights. Try loading the genreator up just a bit more. Maybe put another 300 watt load on it. This may help settle the RPM. Much like how a pickup truck rides much smoother when the bed is full.

i am looking to purchase this 1400-1800 watt generator..possiblely getting a camper and am wondering if it will run a small window A/C, Lights, CD player etc. Thanks.

Asked by: kyrelee
We would suggest a slightly larger generator if you are planning on running an AC unit. This size generator is otherwise perfect for things like lights, radios, TVs, fans. Even a small portable space heater will draw up to 1,500 watts on full power.

I have a very small ac unit. Only 5050 BTU Would this be enough to start it and run it?

Asked by: Ashwats86
Possibly. Most of these types of AC units will run at below 1,400 watts but may require more than 1,800 watts to start. Check with the portable AC unit manufacturer to find out the necessary peak wattage to start the AC unit.

I am thinking of buying this generator to power my music equipment which is a 800 watt amp and CD players or a computer will it do a good job for me 

Asked by: Dorse
I would recommend a generator that uses an automatic voltage regulator or an inverter for use with a computer. This machine would be fine for stereo equipment, tailgates, parties, etc.

Will this run my RV air condition plus a tv

Asked by: 1123
It is very unlikely this will power any rooftop AC unit which are typically 13,500 BTU or larger. You should have a generator with at least 3,100 watts of starting/peak power.

Has anyone used this generator to run a small 110V MIG welder? I have a Miller model 135 and it is rated at 15 amps but that's when fully loaded and I've never had to run it that hard to weld even 1/4 inch thick steel.

Asked by: Welder Tom
We would never recommend running a welder on this size generator. At a minimum you should be using a 4,000 watt peak generator.
