  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 76533 in use

The Champion 76533

Delivering 120V, the Champion 76533 is enhanced by dual-fuel technology, providing power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it boasts a running wattage of 3,800W and a starting wattage of 4,750W. Alternatively, when propane-powered, it delivers 3,420 running watts and 4,275 starting watts.

Enjoying a noise rating of 68 dBA (less noisy than background music), this generator offers the versatility of starting with either a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism or a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included).

In terms of running time, the 76533, equipped with a 3.4 gallons fuel tank, is capable of running continuously for around 9 hours at 50% load on a full gasoline tank (with fuel consumption estimated at around 0.38 gallons per hour). When utilizing propane, it provides around 10.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.45 GPH) of operation.

As the 76533 has a high THD (<20%), it is not recommended to use it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

This Champion generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

With its L26.3 x W24.8 x H22.9 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the Champion 76533 guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

With a weight of 119 lbs, the generator is still labeled as 'portable,' denoting its ability to be moved, although its heaviness might restrict easy portability. Nonetheless, the limited maneuverability is compensated for by utilizing its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, which facilitates shifting once the generator is set on the ground.

Features

The 76533's control panel

The 76533 and its control panel include an Intelligauge meter, showing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours metrics. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

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

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 76533 also comes with several accessories, including: oil, funnel and propane hose.

The Champion 76533 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 76533 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • A weight of 119 lbs makes the Champion 76533 one of the heavier dual fuel devices in the 3500-4500 rated wattage range. If you are mindful of weight, the WEN DF402iX is among the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 66.1 pounds.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this generator with a lowest noise of 68 dBA can be judged as noisy. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may want to take a look at the Westinghouse iGen4500DF. It's one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, rated at 52 dBA.
  • In terms of autonomy, the 76533 offers around 9 hours at a 50% load, placing it at the lower range within its type and power range. If extended autonomy is what matters most to you, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF 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 a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel tank capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary for a complete understanding. The generator burns fuel at a rate of around 0.38 GPH when running at a 50% load, which is consistent with the average fuel usage of models of comparable power output. If you're placing a high priority on fuel consumption, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, with a low fuel consumption rate of 0.23 GPH, could be an option to consider.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 76533 is on the average side of the price range.

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