Product description

The Champion Power Equipment 42436 1200-Watt Multi-Purpose Portable Generator is designed with your safety and convenience in mind, and is the perfect “what if” generator. At 1500 starting watts and 1200 running watts, this rugged generator with its durable steel frame is easy to transport and provides just what you need for RV use, camping, tailgating, boating, hunting, weekend trips, family vacations and small jobs around the house. The next time there’s an outage, the 80cc Champion single-cylinder OHV engine will provide the power you need for a few essential items in an emergency - lights, microwave, fan, TV, modem/router, cell phone charger, etc. (Note: this unit is not recommended for emergency home backup for powering air conditioners, stoves, furnaces or sump pumps.) Champion’s Cold Start Technology ensures a quick start in cold weather, while Voltmeter allows you to easily monitor power output anytime. This unit includes a 120V 20A household outlet (5-20R). Fill up the 1.5-gallon tank of gasoline and enjoy up to 10 hours of power at 50% load. From 23 feet, the noise level is 65 dBA, which is a little bit louder than normal speech. Designed for safety with a convenient push-to-reset circuit breaker and a low oil shut-off sensor, this unit has a 0.4-quart oil capacity (recommended 10W-30) and comes with an oil funnel for easy changes. This generator is EPA certified and CARB compliant. Buy with confidence - Champion Support and our nationwide network of service centers will back your purchase up with a 3-year limited warranty and FREE lifetime technical support.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lifesaver after Hurricane Maria in PR
By Glory Gonzalez-Alamo on December 10, 2017
My family and Puerto Rico ordered this generator and it has been a lifesaver! My stepdad was able to connect the generator to the main electricity box of the house and thanks to this they are able to have a refrigerator connected, a couple of lights and fans for a few hours per night. So far it has been a great generator, cost efficient and reliable after two months of constant use every night. Highly recommended.
