Description

Zoom on the Champion 201035

In summary, the Champion 201035 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 201035 in use

The Champion 201035

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Champion 201035 provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 8000W along with a peak wattage of 10000W. While propane-powered, it provides 7200 rated watts and 9000 starting watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The 201035, with a fuel capacity of 7.7 gallons, reaches a run time of around 10 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.77 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.94 GPH) with propane.

As the 201035 has a relatively high THD (<20%), it is not recommended to use it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 6 AC outlets:

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

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this Champion unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. In addition, as the 201035 holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

The Champion 201035 has the following dimensions: L28.7 x W28.5 x H25.8 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Since the generator weighs 203 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The 201035's control panel

The 201035's control center features an Intelligauge meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Champion 201035 also is packed along with the following accessories: oil, propane hose and funnel.

Emissions

The Champion 201035 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

Product Videos

The Champion 201035 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201035 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Champion 201035 weighs only 203 pounds, making it one of the lighter dual fuel generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage category. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Cummins Onan P9500df, with a dry weight of just 194 pounds.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 74 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Genmax GM9000iED, whose lowest noise levels reach just 62 dBA.
  • Autonomy-wise, with around 10 hours on a full tank at a 50% load, the 201035 is on the low end when compared to other dual fuel generators of a similar power output. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Firman H07552, with 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 Pulsar PG10000B16, with a fuel consumption of 0.55 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 7500-8500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 201035 is on the average side of the price range.

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

    This unit is not ready to go from the store. Does not describe why there is no power from the unit after it is started in the manual or the control panel. Very frustrating and still having problems.

    + PROS:
    • Looks like a million bucks
    • Nice paint job
    - CONS:
    • Heavy
    • Not ready to use from the store
    • It is loud

    For the price great investment. Just if it could be a bit less noisy.
    Powers up the RV both AC unites with no problem along with the other appliances.

    + PROS:
    • Has the power no problem.
    • Easy to start. Like the idea of using LP better on the engine.
    - CONS:
    • NOISY. Get complaints from other campers.
    • Could use two sets of wheels to move around easier.

    I had to get a generator after not having electricity for 2 days and being fed up. I don’t know anything about them but there are 4 people living here and I knew I needed something with some wattage. SO grabbed this one as the price was pretty good for how big and powerful it was. I thought for sure I was going to have to make a bunch of phone calls and get help getting up and running not being very mechanically inclined. I was up and going in seconds once I got it put together (which was much easier than expected) and filled it up with gas. It performed beautifully and man do I feel better about having one as we lose power here 3 to 5 times a year.

    + PROS:
    • Great features, super easy to get started, and looks really sharp as well :)
    - CONS:
    • None so far

    Bought this unit as an upgrade from a smaller unit that I use around the ranch. After this past winter 4 day freeze with no power or water I decided to get a bigger unit to power my whole house. This model has excellent power and it’s quick to start. I use propane so I don’t have to bleed the carburetor and so far so good. Champion makes a great product.

    • Duel fuel
    • Electric start
    • Price
    • Quality
    • Performance
    - CONS:
    • A bit on the heavy side
