Not great, but it is the best one going (I searched for weeks now).
Reviews are great on Amazon.....70+ reviews, average is 4.5 stars
Includes wheel package (normally $50).
I paid zero tax in VA.
I've been waiting for a good deal (delivered) on these for over a month.
BF had them for $297, but that deal was B&M pickup only.

The weekender package should throw in 4 sets of earplugs for your family.bouncebounce

good price though, might look into muffling it more than stock.

Actually, these champions are some of the quietest generators in their size class. The only thing better would be a honda at 8X the cost.

It accepts either free shipping code or $20 off.

Anyway to stack them?

Thanks

I think I will bite. Good price for a seemingly good generator. Also been looking for weeks, kind of tired of it. Been contemplating cheap crappy generators, this one seems solid. Even though I would like to spend less, this is probably a fairly solid investment. Thanks op!

Anyone here have good knowledge of what it takes to tie this up to your electric box (or other ways). Would love to be able to run the furnace in the winter if the power goes out...

Thats what I thought too. There are better deals for Harbor-Freight type generators, but they have very mixed reviews. These are solid and time-tested having been on the market for several years now. This generator is sold at stores like Lowes, Home Depot, Sears, etc.

For what its worth, I had a 2500w(3k max) Honda generator for 11 years. It was great. My only beef with it was that voltage dropped quite a bit as load went up. My microwave would not work with it unless it was at 50% duty (about 1000watts). Anyway, I sold it for $425, and turned around and bought this one. Had cash left over for other toys. bounce

damn, i just got pretty much the same generator (same specs but with remote start) about a week ago for $500 shipped. this is a great price, especially for someone who hopes to really never need to use it like me.

Shipping was $20, but I could not get the free shipping coupon and the $20 coupon to stack... so it's either or, but works out to the same.

This is actually better than the BF deal if you live in a state that they don't charge tax.

BF was $297 but B&M only meaning you get charged tax (~$25) when you went to buy it. I picked up this deal a few days ago, and with the $20 off coupon it came to a total of $309 shipped. It's now cheaper + you don't have to find a local store, deal with the crowds of people and lug it home Cool

Oh and in addition to the wheel kit, it also includes a PVC cover ($25 normally). Seems like a good deal, I picked one up Smilie

I'm new to generators and am wondering how much worrk is required to install one? I'm a bay area native and the power never goes out here nor does it get very cold but id like to be prepared, in case the shit hits the fan. I always thought these generators were several thousand dollars.

$25 discount if you buy e-gift card of $225 for $250 at plastic jungle. it came instantly for me, but they warn you that if you haven't ordered from them before, it can take 24 hours to get the code. use a discover card for another 5% off.

I plan to store it outside on the deck. Any suggestions for the cover?

This site does have champion and generic brands. Not sure if they will work OK out during winter / snow.

I have this and it comes with a cover included. Not sure if you are looking for a more heavy duty one though, but i think the one that it comes with will suffice for most conditions.
