Well It Arrived
On time and the delivery service was excellent. Assembly is a no brainier. Connected to propane fuel source and the generator fired right up.

Champion Dual Fuel Generator Inoperable On Gasoline Fuel
The Champion dual fuel 8kw generator model 100297 was received in good order without shipping damage. The generator started and ran properly using LP fuel from a 20lb standard tank. Unfortunately after following the manufacturer's instructions for fuel change-over to gasoline running, the unit failed to start on gasoline. The no-start condition may be related to the gasoline solenoid not activating properly.

First Generator
I was shopping for a generator for those few times (sarcasm)that we here in NH lose power. A "must have" was dual fuel. A "would like to have" was USA made.Better luck next time on the latter. A USA made Winco is wicked expensive in a feature for feature comparison. The Champion was delivered undamaged. I filled it up with oil, connected the battery and attached a propane tank. I hit the start button and it ran as advertised. I have run it a few times under a light load.... more

Well Built, Worked First Time
This generator was ordered as part of our earthquake preparedness effort. We've had similar generators before and use them with a 10-circuit emergency switch panel. This unit seems to be well-designed. The only comment is that the electrical panel on the unit does not have firm backing so when plugging in the 30-amp, 220 v power cord, the panel does not feel firm and moves a bit.

We received a call within 48 hours of the order arranging for delivery. The generator was delivered on time, one... more

Best Overall Experience Ever
I was trying to buy the generator online but wanted to make sure I got lift gate service, so I called the 800 # and very nice person came on the phone and in a matter of seconds my order was in process. The same day I got an email saying that my order had shipped. The generator arrived with no dents in the shipping box and truck driver lowered it to the ground with the lift gate and used his pallet jack to put it in the garage.

I then followed the instructions to install wheels,oil and etc..... more
