Description

Zoom on the Champion 201035

In a nutshell, the Champion 201035 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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

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 8,000W along with a peak wattage of 10,000W. While propane-powered, it provides 7,200 rated watts and 9,000 starting watts.

The generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner).

Regarding its running time, the 201035, 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 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.94 GPH).

Since the 201035 has a high THD (<20%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 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 it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 201035 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

The dimensions of the Champion 201035, which are L28.7 x W28.5 x H25.8 in, and its typical, open frame design provides stability and enables the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough 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). 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 201035

The 201035's control panel

The 201035 and its control panel include an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 201035, the following accessories are also included: oil, funnel and propane hose. The official storage cover and running cover are also available, as separate purchases.

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 thus, may 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 noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO with only 62 dBA.
  • The 201035, falls within the average autonomy range compared to dual fuel generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of around 10 hours at a 50% load and a full tank. 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.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about 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 fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Pulsar PG10000B16, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.55 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.

    I had to use my generator for the first time last night. It started running around 3:30 pm and ran until 7:00 pm when power was restored – on less than a half tank of gas. It ran with no problems at all. I really liked the way I could tell when power was restored because the lights flickered. I then turned all the breakers off and turned off the generator. Turned breakers back on and sure enough, power was restored. I would recommend this generator! Best investment for living in the country.

    + PROS:
    • Easy to use.
    - CONS:
    • Not ready to go out of the box

    Good generator like the propane option noise is not an issue being located far away from people. Weight is not a problem either since its stationary. Electric start is awesome since I can’t pull start anymore. Can’t seem to get this thing to run more than 2 hours with out shutting down don’t plan on anything from tech support or tractor supply nobody wants to know anything.

    + PROS:
    • Dual fuel
    - CONS:
    • Does not run more than 2 hrs usually 1.5 hrs

    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.
