Item Information

The Champion Power Equipment 100174 Home Standby Generator System - 8.5 kW Home Standby Generator and ATS50 (50 Amp, NEMA 1 Automatic Transfer Switch) - is The Simple Solution to a power outage. Security, convenience, health and safety are all things that every homeowner holds dear. Don't put these things at risk during a power outage. Millions of individuals suffer from the effects of a power outage annually. No electricity means no lights, no heat or air conditioning, no internet, no refrigeration, etc. A power outage lasting only a few days can also cost the average family thousands in repairs. If power goes out a Champion Home Standby Generator will keep the lights on, run heat and air conditioning, keep security systems operating, power major appliances, keep the home business operating, power a sump pump, protect against frozen pipes, give you peace of mind while you're away, and much more. No more searching for flashlights, no extension cords, no refueling in the dark. If utility power is interrupted, the Home Standby Generator will automatically detect the outage. In a matter of seconds it will start and deliver continuous, reliable power to your home - ensuring the things you need most stay on. When the utility power is restored to your home, the generator will automatically return to standby mode. It will also automatically perform weekly self-diagnostic tests to assure that it is ready and waiting for the next power outage. The generator is permanently installed outside of your home and connects directly to your home's natural gas line or propane supply. Without the need to manually refuel and with quietest-in-class noise levels, this generator will keep your life interruption-free.

  • Seamless 24/7 Power - no refueling, no manual operation, no extension cords needed with a ATS50 automatic transfer switch (50 amp, select circuit, indoor rated)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Champion for me This is an update to my Review from 2 Years ago The Generator has now 3000hrs. on it. I had to replace the Starter which was supplied by Champion under warranty. Still runs well, no Issues at all not even a Sparkplug replaced , just change Oil every once in a while as recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic 8.5 generator and even better customer support I've had two Champion portable generators for more than 15 years and they still run as good as the day they were new and they each have hundreds of hours on them.  I had great service and customer support with those generators so when I decided to install a Home Standby Generator, I went first to Champion.   Adam at Champion helped me select the right model.   I finished the testing procedures with excellent support from Adam Spero at Champion answering every question and expediting materials as needed.   Just as I finished the install it started snowing.  15 hours later the utility failed and I've been on the generator 8 hours with 3 returns to the utility for a few minutes before they failed again and the Champion kicked right on.  I'm delighted with the low noise level, quick starts and rock solid voltage and frequency.  When I kick on a 1500w microwave or other load there is no flicker or change in the tone of the generator, it just purrs along.  Byond the great machine I can't say enough good about the support from Adam from making the choice on which generator I needed to advice on site placement and all other technical support ... Delighted

I have a home with an off-grid solar system. Can I configure the generator to start from the remote start output on my inverter? Also would not need the transfer switch as this would feed directly into my inverter/charger.

Asked by: Grumpy Grizzly
Hello Grumpy Grizzly, If the generator is used in an off-grid application, there will be nothing maintaining the batteries as this system utilizes grid power for battery maintenance. Off-Grid applications where the machine is the primary source of power, even when paired with solar, is not covered under the manufacturer warranty. This is intended to be used as backup to the grid, should it fail, and the warranty is built around this intended application. Thank you!

Do I have to have my local power company install this unit or can a piggy back system work for installing this unit as I can with a portable generator?

Asked by: Sailor78
Your power company would not be installing this, a third party electrician/contractor would be. This unit comes with a transfer switch that will be installed to work with your existing power panel and to monitor current from the grid in the event of a power outage. For more info, please give us a call at 877-338-0999 M-F 8:30AM-5PM PST.

I have a 200amp service panel how will it run my panel at 50amp?

Asked by: Gregory L557
Hello Gregory, You will select the desired circuits in your home that will be powered by the generator. Your panel has a 200A maximum. The generator produces 240V at about 35A for 8,500 watts. You will discuss with your installer what items you need powered in the home and they will connect those circuits from your 200A service panel to the 50A transfer switch. You can give us call if you need help determining your overall power needs. You can also email us at SUPPORT@CPEAUTO.COM or visit www.ChampionPowerEquipment.com for additional guidance.
