Description

Zoom on the Champion 201407

In summary, the Champion 201407 is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Small homeowners in search of a full power backup solution
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • 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 201407 in use

The Champion 201407

The Champion 201407's core is the 459 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 9,000W and a peak wattage of 11,000W. The impressive running wattage makes this unit one of the biggest inverter generators currently on the market.

At a noise rating of 64 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office), this inverter generator can be started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). For additional convenience, the 201407 may also be remotely started (key fob included).

The fuel capacity of 6.08 gallons allows the 201407 to operate for up to 15 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.41 GPH).

The 201407 produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

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

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

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, due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 201407 is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

As the Champion 201407 is an inverter generator, its encased design (L28.3 x W28.8 x H27.5 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 200 pounds. Still, once it is on the ground, its set of wheels (⌀9") and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

Features

Panel of the Champion 201407

The 201407's control panel

One of the many 201407's features is the Intelligauge data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours, frequency, power output and voltage and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

In addition to this info, a light indicator shows you if its oil levels are insufficient.

The inverter generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

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.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Champion 201407 also comes with some accessories: oil, tool kit, key fob and funnel are included.

Emissions

The Champion 201407 is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

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

In addition, the unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Champion 201407 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201407 compare to generators of similar power (between 8500 and 9500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Champion 201407 has only 200 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter generators which produce 8500 to 9500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, weighing just 187.4 pounds.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 64 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the more quiet of the generators of similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Pulsar PGD105TiSCO. With just 62 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing up to 15 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 25% load, the 201407 falls into the low end in comparison with other devices of a comparable power output. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the DuroMax XP10000DX, boasting with up to 22 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. This inverter generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.41 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, is one of the more fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the DuroMax XP10000DX, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.38 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 8500-9500W generators, the Champion 201407 is on the average side of the price range.

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