Things To Know About
If You Need Power Equipment, Here Is Look At Some
Of The Best Selling Generators Rated By Reviews
Champion Power Line; Who We
The Champion Power Equipment team designs and manufactures their own engines and
generators at their factory (Zhejiang Champion Power Equipment) in the Zhejiang province of
China. They specialize in light duty, medium duty and heavy duty gasoline driven portable
generators as well as transfer pumps and pressure washers.
The Champion Brand; It's More Than a Name!
As you shop around and compare prices, you should really go beyond shopping solely for the
best price. Or, seeking out the best or top sale. As you search, your focus needs to be on features,
quality and extraordinary reliability.
When speaking about generators, its goes beyond a price discount. You want to know is the
equipment reliable? If it is not, all of the low prices, everyday discount prices and save big
campaigns won't mean a thing. This is what separates Champion fulfillment apart from other generator's deals.
This may go against the grain but sometimes the best deal may cost a little more. The bestselling
generators cost a little more because they can handle the pressure, the are reliable and if anything
goes wrong you get real customer support.
Those facts are give when talking about Honda equipment or any of the major lines such as
Yamaha and Champion. As quiet as it is kept, if you compare generators, deals do abound but what about the big
question? Is the unit carb approved? For some unit the answer is, "NO!" That's why we caution people to stick
with the top rated generators.
The Champion Brand; Noise Level and Fuel Consumption
Champion manufactures open-frame, synchronous-style (as opposed to inverter-style)
generators. Their fuel consumption and noise-levels for this style of generator meets or beats that of the
open-frame, synchronous-style generators produced by Briggs and Stratton, Pramac, Generac, Honda and Yamaha. In
other words, you get a quiet operation, fast response and great support.
They do not offer an auto-idle feature on their generators. The auto-idle feature
reduces fuel consumption for generators without load but does not offer any benefit for synchronous-style
generators under load.
Champion Generators Compare When It Comes To Harmonic Distortion?
Their generators produce clean electricity with total harmonic distortion (THD) less than
5%, meeting or beating the THD levels of synchronous-style generators produced by the manufacturers listed
above. They do encourage consumers to take steps to protect themselves against voltage fluctuations,
whether powered through their local electric company, a Champion Power Equipment generator or one of their
competitor's models. This is especially significant when powering electronics designed to operate within a
narrow range of voltage.
The Standards of The Champion Generator Line
The Canadian Standards Association CSA approves all Champion Power Equipment models sold in
Canada). Every generator we produce is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified and all models sold in
California also have California Air Resource Board (CARB) certification.
UL does not currently offer a standard for portable generators. There is a working group for
UL-2201, a draft proposal for portable generators. Our retail customers often pick elements of the UL-2201 draft
proposal as requirements for buying our products. Our compliance with vendor requirements is certified by
independent testing laboratories such as BV (Bureau Veritas), Intertek ETL (Electrical Testing Lab) and CTL
(Consumer Testing Laboratories).
When You See These Units In Retail Stores, Know This…
When consumers see Champion Power Equipment products on the shelves of their retail stores next
to other manufacturers, they can be assured that they have met a higher and more rigorous
standard and expectation than all of their competition. This is one line that pushes to promote familiarity, ease
of use and all of the important options that users need and want.
