Champion Power Equipment 5500-Watt Portable Generator with Wheel Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 420.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value again! Just upgraded from your wonderful 3850/4500 Champion model and this 5500 runs only at 50% where the previous was always peaking. 5500 gets less fuel economy, but well worth the upgrade for less than 1/2 gallon of extra gas during run time as house back up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pardon the pun: This generator is a real Champion Living off grid for about six months, I needed a generator for electricity and cooling. This Champion is the third generator in 3-4 months time. The first one was a Westinghouse that had a variety of problems including two trips to the shop for repairs before being told it's kaput. Trying to get it replaced or refunded now as it's only about 90 days old. Borrowed a monster Briggs & Stratton generator from a friend that I think was a Craftsman brand. It was nine years old and had not been used for years. It had a push rod come off and an exhaust valve stick. Then it threw a rod. Thank God my friend didn't want it back. Enter the Champion. No problems and I'm in week 3 or 4 now. I do use the generator for 18 hours a day on average. Change the oil weekly and so far, it's been the best of the three. Get about 8 hours of run time on a tank of gas. One feature I wish it had was a throttle adjustment based upon the demand. This one runs full bore all the time. So did the Craftsman. One nice feature of the Westinghouse was it run at a speed based upon demand. The more power you needed; the faster the engine run (and the louder it got). I'm impressed with this generator and recommend it to anyone. It starts on one pull every time. Amazing!

As I write, family member is on his way to Tractor Supply Co to buy one. We have no power because a snow storm created a lot of damage thru out the county. What else do we need to buy to wire it up into the circuit breaker box ?? and power cords. Thanks

Asked by: JohnNYSEMTB
Unless you have a properly installed transfer switch or interlock device, you should not attempt to connect this directly to your home. Consult a local licensed electrician. In the meantime, use extension cords into your home to run the appliances.

Does this unit have a fuel gauge? If not, then can you by a gauge to install?

Asked by: samokc
No, sorry, there is no fuel meter on the top of the fuel tank. You can remove the fuel cap and view the fuel level this way as the filter basket inside goes nearly to the bottom of the tank. This makes it easy to get an idea of how much fuel remains when you look inside.

will it run an A/C unit for an RV?

Asked by: 4czn10
Most RV's have a 15,000 BTU AC unit or below. An AC unit of this size takes between 3,300-3,500 watts. A generator of this size should have no issue running a single AC unit in your RV as well as a few other appliances such as a small refrigerator.

How loud is this unit? Does it protect from surges that may damage cell phones? Can it run all appliances and ac in a travel trailer? Thanks!

Asked by: tracy78
74dBA measured from 23ft. The generator is equipped with over voltage protection, automatic voltage regulation, and circuit breakers. It can safely charge cell phones and power appliances. It is not the best configuration for a 120V 30A RV however. Since the machine produces 5,500 watt at 240V, this means it will only supply about 22.92 amps per 120V circuit. A 3,500 watt generator for example would produce 120V at just over 29A which would make it a better fit for a 120V 30A RV.

I'm 58 old lady lol can I start this up is it that easy to start?

Asked by: cabinlady
Yes, you should still be able to pull the engine over. It is equipped with a compression release which makes it easier to pull over.
