Description

Zoom on the Champion 201067

In summary, the Champion 201067 is a powerful portable inverter 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
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

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 201067 in use

The Champion 201067

The Champion 201067's engine, 420 cc OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 7,250W and reaches a peak wattage of 9,000W.

Enjoying a noise rating of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this inverter generator can be started thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also to a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The fuel capacity of 4.3 gallons allows the 201067 to operate for up to 10.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.41 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the 201067 generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it has 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries. Since a dual port USB adapter is included with the unit, you will also be able to use the DC receptacle to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

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 201067 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 Champion 201067 has the following dimensions: L26.6 x W25.5 x H24.6 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 152.2 lbs. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its set of wheels (⌀8") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

The 201067's control panel

A digital Intelligauge data center, one of the features of the 201067's control panel, gives you information on the frequency, lifetime run hours, power output and voltage, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

The inverter generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

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 201067, the following accessories are also included: oil, dual port USB adapter and funnel. The official storage cover and running cover are also available, as separate purchases.

Emissions

The Champion 201067 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Champion 201067 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201067 compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Champion 201067 has only 152.2 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter generators which produce 6500 to 7500 rated watts. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF with only 133 pounds.
  • This inverter generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 72 dBA. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Powerhorse 7500i with only 55 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the 201067, reaching up to 10.5 hours at a 25% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP8500EH, reaching up to 25 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. This inverter generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.41 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the DuroMax XP7500DX, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.29 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 6500-7500W inverter generators, the Champion 201067 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
