"Folks, I had been looking for a Home Generator for Power Outages and Storms (living near the Gulf of Mexico) for several months and after comparison with Many, Many other generators ' Champion' is side-by-side with same sized generators - 'Name Brands' in out-put to size ration (engine, Voltage output, weight etc) The Champion 6000 watt Model: 41111 is a Great Buy and (come to find out later on) a Really Super Unit. It arrived yesterday 05-08-2013 and i read ALL the information that came with it. The unit was Heavy at over 200 pounds so it is a two person job to unload from your vehicle, unless you can lift that much as the box had handle holes. Just 'Read' and 'Follow' the instructions and the unit will be together in 30 minutes. Super easy instructions and ALL the parts were there too. Comes with a Complete Box not some pieces of a box. I put in Fresh fuel and 10w-30w oil (for Texas Heat and Cold) and the recommended amount of Pri-G for gasoline stabilization when stored for long periods. I then turned on the gas valve and pulled the starter rope twice (to prime it) and then pushed the choke lever over. I pulled just ONCE and she started up in a little putter and as i pushed the 'Choke Lever' back to Off/Normal the 'Bad-Lad' then kicked in full power and was running smooth. Yes the DB level is right at the about 60db, but with a inexpensive noise suppressor (cheap one for a few bucks) and will knock it down to a 30 to 40db max level - if you are using it allot - like at a deer camp or just camping :) I let it run for 15 minutes and then plugged in an industrial saw (start up draw is amps 13A) and the generator just kicked it up for a second for the initial AMP draw and then went right back to 'Rock Steady) output. I checked ALL the plugs and they ALL were putting out the proper voltage/amps. I then let it run for 10 more minutes and turned off the GAS valve and let it run dry. (Do this when it will be stored for long periods of time.) After 1 1/2 hours the Champion 41111 was pretty much 'Stone Cold' and i wanted to see if it truly was a 'One Pull Start Generator' and Folks she Sure is :) I performed the same operation of turning on the fuel valve, pulling twice on the started rope and THEN move the choke lever over. Pull the starter handle and VEEERRRRROOOOOOMMMM she is pumping out those precious Volts 'n Amps. Remember to buy the proper oil and Fill it up - READ the Instructions - Can't info-size that enough. I purchased mine on-line and I have bought from these folks before - Northern T&E for Life. I will update this after i use the Generator and can give more information on performance, durability and other areas of the unit. The Prepared Man - Dan
1.) No light on the Volt Meter (i did not knock off a Star forth that) You know the power 90% of the time happens at Night - Go Figure :\"
