Description

Zoom on the Champion 200929

In a few words, the Champion 200929 is a powerful portable generator perfectly suited for:

  • Homeowners who wish to power almost all appliances in their house under any circumstances
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

In the upcoming sections, you'll discover its power characteristics, the array of outlets it presents, its overall portability, and the additional features it possesses.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 200929 in use

The Champion 200929

Featuring a 500 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, the Champion 200929 operates using gasoline, providing 120/240V, with a running wattage of 9,500W and a starting wattage of 12,000W.

The generator features a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism and also a hassle-free and practical electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower). For additional convenience, the 200929 may also be remotely started (key fob included).

With a fuel capacity of 7.7 gallons, the 200929 may run for around 8 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.96 GPH).

The quite high THD (<20%) of the 200929 makes it unsuitable for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

For RV owners with a 50-amp service, this Champion unit is RV-ready, boasting a 14-50R outlet. In addition, the 200929's twist-lock L14-30R receptacle makes it transfer switch ready, enabling hassle-free connection to your breaker box for powering your home during outages.

Portability

With dimensions of L28.8 x W27.4 x H25.8 in, the standard open frame design of the Champion 200929 provides stability and easy maintenance access to components, as well as good air circulation. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 206 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Panel of the Champion 200929

The 200929's control panel

The control panel of the 200929 includes an Intelligauge meter, providing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours data, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

Benefiting from its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows for easy and immediate gas level inspections.

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

The unit also benefits from the CO Shield™ technology, which monitors accumulation of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas produced by the engine's exhaust when the generator is running. If CO Shield™ detects elevated levels of CO gas, it automatically shuts off the engine and illuminates a red LED.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 200929, the following accessories are also included: key fob, oil and funnel.

The Champion 200929 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 200929 compare to generators of similar power (between 9000 and 10000 W).

  • Regarding weight, the Champion 200929 comes in at only 206 pounds, positioning itself as one of the lighter options among generators spanning from 9000 to 10000 in rated wattage. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 187.4 pounds.
  • With noise emissions rated as low as 74 dBA, this generator falls within the typical noise range expected for devices of similar power. If noise level is one your key decisive factors, you may find the DuroMax XP11000iH appealing. It's rated at 61 dBA, making it one of the quietest generators in its power range.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the 200929 can run for around 8 hours at a 50% load, aligning it with the lower performers in its power range. If extended autonomy is what matters most to you, the Powerhorse 13000ES could be an excellent choice, offering one of the longest run times among units in its power category, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. In terms of fuel efficiency within its wattage range, this generator falls short: it consumes approximately 0.96 GPH at a 50% load. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.66 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 9000-10000W generators, the Champion 200929 is on the average side of the price range.

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