Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Generator When Dayton was hit by tornadoes on Memorial Day I was without power, water and internet though my house fortunately was undamaged. The third day without power I stopped in Tractor Supply in Eaton, OH and was fortunate enough to purchase their last generator. Jeremy, the salesman at Tractor Supply, was kind enough to have it ready to go--wheels attached, filled with oil and some gas --when my friend arrived with his truck to load and take to my house in Dayton, OH. The generator was easy to use. I ran two fridge-freezers, a light, and microwave or toaster or fan all at the same time. My food got even colder than when normally plugged in! I added gasoline with the engine running--I know you shouldn't do that but when you are trying to fill up in pitch dark outside with only a flashlight it was the only way to go. It worked fine. I had to have help to remove the oil plug, but everything else I could do on my own. (I'm a 62 year old female.) Having gone without power for two weeks about 6 years ago, I can really appreciate having this generator! I will start it every 6 months or so and run a bit of gas and stabilizer through it, just to keep it ready for next time I need it in an emergency. Your help line personnel were also very helpful when I called! One thing--DO NOT USE IT ON A SCREENED IN PORCH! Carbon monoxide can seep through the door where the cord goes outside--even with the crack filled with a towel! I had to open all the doors and windows to air out the house after I plugged in my carbon monoxide tester to the generator and found higher than normal levels of carbon monoxide.

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.

what is the amp rating for this unit?

Asked by: gwmharley
A 240V 5,500 watt generator can produce 22.91A. You could also run it in 120V mode with two circuits both providing 22.91A.

Is this generator RV ready?

Asked by: Canary
A generator of this size is not ideal for use with a 120V 30A RV for example. This machine is configured for 240V output. That means you divide 5,500 watts by 240V to get 22.91 amps. This means on each 120V leg of this generator, the maximum amperage you can sustain is 22.91 amps. Comparing that to a 3,600 watt generator that produces only 120V we find that the smaller generator will be a better fit for the application. A generator producing 3,600 watts at 120V is a full 30A. All of this is calculated using the formula Amps X Volts = Watts.

Some clarification; On the TSC website under the details section it states it has a 383 cc motor and a 3 year warranty. In the operating manual it states a 338 cc motor and a 2 year warranty. Which is correct? What's the generator's shipping dimensions?

Asked by: KK Busman
The wrong manual is attached to this product page. We will have this corrected. Thank you for pointing that out. All Champion generators have a three year limited warranty. Package Length (in.) 31.7 | Package Width (in.) 21.3 | Package Height (in.) 23.2 | Package Weight (lb.) 162.3

will it run a stick welder

Asked by: eddie 15
It will most likely run your welder, but it may not run it at full output power. You will need to contact the manufacturer of the stick welder to find out if the wattage draw falls within the generator's rated potential.

Just to simplify last question. Is the 240v outlet (L14) on this generator gfi protected?

Asked by: jimmynyc
It is not GFCI protected, but it still has a bonded neutral which I believe is what is at the root of your previous question. Drop me an email, I can help you with this. It is very common when connecting to a transfer switch. You are one step ahead of most by already knowing the configuration your transfer panel is asking for. Lots of people move into a home where one exists for example and do not know if they need floating or bonded. SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM, attn. Brian Downs. Thank you!

Two questions: Does it have an integrated carbon monoxide sensor; and what is the minimum recommended operating temperature? Thanks.

Asked by: icheckemout
This unit is not equipped with a CO sensor but we do have new models coming that will be including this feature. The minimum starting temperature is 5F. If the machine is stored in temps below this, it should be brought up to this temperature before starting. It can operate in ambient temps below 5F.

I don’t have a transfer switch. Will the voltage drop through a 50’ extension cord affect my refrigerator operation? It’s a smaller fridge for a double wide. Please forgive my ignorance of basic electricity :)  I’ve never gotten the hang of it  :)

Asked by: Pabst Blue Ribbon
This should not be an issue. The voltage loss on a 14 gauge copper wire going 50ft. is not significant enough to be a concern. Additionally, the generator will be set to run at about 250V or 125V per leg which will help compensate for drop over distance as well. Thank you.

Is this powerfull enough to run a 95% furnace, a refrigerator, a TV, and a few lights in a Michigan winter power outage?

Asked by: Luigi57
Hello Luigi, For a 'high efficiency furnace' or '95% furnace' control system you may need inverter quality power or you can simply add a line conditioner. While this machine produces a sine wave and not a modified wave or square wave, making it perfectly acceptable for nearly all appliances and entertainment items, some select applications may require what is known as a 'pure sine wave'. This size machine is likely large enough. Speak with your furnace manufacturer to get exact power requirements and if you have any additional questions, please drop us a line at SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM. Thank you!

hi, i bought generator, hooked up transfer switch 3006hdk and then read about issues regarding tripping generator breakers that have bonded neutrals. does this just involve the gfi outlets or the l14 4 prong too? thanks, jimmy

Asked by: jimmynyc
Hello Jimmy, if your generator has GFCI outlets on it, that means the generator is using a bonded neutral throughout the machine. The L14-30 may not have a GFCI protection, but it will use a bonded neutral. It sounds like your transfer switch is asking for a floating neutral generator. We can help you make this configuration change. Please contact us at a SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM for further assistance on this. Thank you.

Will this generator run a 30amp RV for the a/C and fridge with water pump and hot water heater?

Asked by: Big Poppa J
This 5,500 watt generator is configured to also put out 240V. This means that you will get only 22.9 Amps on each 120V circuit. Based on your description of the RV being 30A, I would expect it to be a 120V input as well. You would actually be better served using a generator with 120V output and a rating of about 3,600 watts to get a full 120V 30A input. Even with a 120V 30A generator of this size connected, your water heater and fridge should be run on propane.

We just bought this model generator. What type of extension cords should be used?

Asked by: Anonymous
The 20A duplex outlets can provide up to 2,400 watts. If you are going to pull the 2,400 watts through a single extension cord, it should be 12 gauge. If you are going to split the wattage by using two extension cords at a single duplex, you can use the standard 14/16 gauge cords. If you want to connect to the 240V 30A outlet on the generator, you will need a NEMA L14-30 extension cord which we do offer. If you need guidance on choosing one for you application, please feel free to email us at SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM or give us a call at 877-338-0999 M-F 8:30AM - 5PM PST. Thank you.

I am needing a generator that will run a 220 water pump. Will this generator do that? If so, how since it is listed at 120.

Asked by: Pete4911
The product description lists 120/240V. I do see the mistake under specifications. The machine is in fact capable of 22.91A at 240V. Check with the water pump manufacturer or your pumps literature to find out the amperage draw at 240V.

Will this unit be adequate for a 1/2 hp well pump, 1/2 hp furnace pump, a refrigerator and a freezer?

Asked by: Charlie09
It may not power all of these devices at the same time... however you can use simple power management. For example, your well will likely not be running all the time and you can alternate power to the freezer and refrigerator as needed. The freezer/fridge will keep their temperature for quite some time and do not necessarily need constant power.

What size generator do i need to run my well pump, oil burner, refrigerator and hot water heater, one lamp and laptop. I realize i might not need these all at same time. Thx

Asked by: Kembryck
Hello Kembryck, While we understand the question, it is very hard to answer because of the potential varying sizes of well pumps and water heaters that are out there. For example an electric hot water heater can take an extreme amount of power compared to a gas water heater. The same could be said for a 1/3HP well pump compared to a 2HP submersible. Very likely, the machine will power nearly all of these items, at least one at a time and very likely with more than one item at a time. If you want to discuss further you can always give us a call or drop an email to SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM. Try to include the sizes or voltage/amperage requirements for the intended items. Thank you!

Can it run a home furnace?

Asked by: Kathleen1
Yes, it is powerful enough to run most residential furnaces. If you have a high efficiency furnace board, you may want to check with the manufacturer for restrictions as some may require a pure sine wave or inverter quality power. This is the minority, but you may want to check.

Will this generator run a 15k btu a/c unit for an rv? The camper is set up for a 50 amp breaker, but only have to use 50 amps if 2nd a/c unit is installed? I read below that it sounds like too much generator for some rv's?

Asked by: Smitty0617
Hello Smitty, The issue with using a 5,500 watt 240V generator is that it can only sustain 22.91 amps on each 120V leg. You would actually benefit more from having a 3,600 watt 120V generator for example as that will supply 30 amps on the single 120V leg if you are running a single AC unit. We use the formula Amps X Volts = Watts to help determine this. Feel free to contact us at SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM for further guidance. Thank you.

Is there a Champion generator that can run a 50 amp rv with two air conditioners 15000 btu each dry camping ?

Asked by: Bugman51
You would want to provide the RV with two 120V 30A circuits to account for other loads likely to be in play, so I would recommend you step up to a machine about 7,000 watts in size or larger.
