Description

Champion’s ultra-powerful 7500-watt generator with electric start features Dual Fuel, allowing the 439cc engine to run on either gasoline or propane. Featuring Intelligauge, Volt Guard™ and Cold Start Technology, it provides up to 10 hours of run time on gasoline or 5.5 hours on propane.

Zoom on the Champion 100891

In summary, the Champion 100891 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100891 in use

The Champion 100891

Featuring dual-fuel technology, the Champion 100891 provides 120/240V, as well as versatility and power. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 7,500W and a peak wattage of 9,375W. Alternatively, when fueled by propane, it offers 6,750 running watts and 8,400 peak watts.

Enjoying a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator can be started thanks to a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism, but also to a straightforward and intuitive electric starter (battery included).

Regarding its running time, the 100891, with a 7.7 gallons fuel capacity, can operate for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.77 GPH). When using propane, it can run for around 5.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.85 GPH).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the 100891 is not recommended due to its high THD (<20%).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

While this Champion generator is not RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle can be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, as it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 100891 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

With its L28.8 x W27.7 x H26.1 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the Champion 100891 guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Despite its weight of 207 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. However, the limited maneuverability is remedied with its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, facilitating convenient shifting once the generator is positioned on the ground.

Features

The 100891's control panel

Monitoring of the 100891's status and activity is made possible by a digital Intelligauge data center, which provides information on the frequency, lifetime run hours, voltage and power output and is one of the features of its control panel.

Featuring a built-in fuel gauge, the generator offers quick, convenient, and easy gas level checks at a glance.

In terms of security, the generator features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), ensuring peace of mind during its use. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the Champion 100891 features extra accessories: oil, funnel and propane hose.

The Champion 100891 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100891 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7000 and 8000 W).

  • At 207 lbs in dry weight, the Champion 100891 fits well within the typical weight bracket for dual fuel generators producing 7000 to 8000 rated watts. Weight-conscious users may find the Sportsman GEN85KIDF appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 133 pounds.
  • When comparing it to devices with a similar running wattage, this generator's lowest noise level of 74 dBA puts it alongside the noisier units. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Champion 201175. With just 61 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Offering around 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the 100891 is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful dual fuel generators. If prolonged run time is essential to your needs, you could consider the Firman H07553, which offers one of the highest autonomy among devices with similar power output, lasting around 12 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank's capacity and thus, doesn't say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. Compared to its peers, this generator is not exactly fuel-efficient, compared to similarly powerful devices, with an estimated fuel consumption of 0.77 GPH at a 50% load. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Cummins Onan P9500df, with a fuel consumption of 0.6 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7000-8000W dual fuel generators, the Champion 100891 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
