So $200 off the normal price, not sure if the $50 shipping fee will be waived, but pickup at B&M shouldn't be an issue with a decent sized vehicle. I've been waiting for this one.

I bought one of these during a sale last year when it was $649 then a few months later another sale came about and it was selling for $599. Went to Costco to see if they would price match, but since it was a few months later they said they couldn't price match. However they told me that they had a satisfaction guarantee and left it at that. Basically they were telling me in so many words that I could purchase a new unit at the better price then 'return' the old one for a refund under that guarantee so that's what I did.

That story out of the way, the generator is a great buy at that price. I was debating between this unit and the Duromax hybrid 10k watt for the same price, but in the end the fact that the Champion produces 'clean' power with >5% THD made me go with it instead even though it produces less wattage. I ended up following Medic311's generator break-in guide and it runs like a champ. Haven't had to use it in an actual emergency, but I'm glad to know it's there. One of the small features that I like is that it has a fuel cutoff valve so you can run the carb dry after use so it doesn't get gunked up by old fuel while it is sitting in storage.

I like that this can run on propane out of the box. If you run on gas you must take the time to either completely drain the fuel system or to periodically run it with fresh fuel or it will not run when you need it most. I don't like running gas through any occasional use motor. Now that I mention that, I need to run my chainsaw when I get home. That hasn't seen action in close to a year with only fuel stabilizer to protect the fuel system.

Great product got it last year. Just be careful with the propane nosle, it's cheap and if you turn your tank on too quickly it'll blow the valve.

Anyone know what hardware is involved in connecting this safely to my electric panel so it can power the entire house? (minus central AC)

You need an inlet wired in (where you plug in the cord from the generator) to a circuit that feeds the panel. This would also require an interlock kit, a simple piece of metal that prevent the circuit being live when the main panel feed is live. The other option is a subpanel which usually includes the inlet. Either solution should be done by an electrician, the interlock setup is cheapest and worked well for me at my last place.

Ball park cost for these parts and electrical work would be $300-800, depend on how fancy you get with the subpanel and how much an electrician charges in your area.

I had a manual (six circuit) transfer switch installed about 14 years ago when I upgraded my service panel. It satisfies my needs but if I was to do it all over again I would go with an interlock set up as described by Greystone. With the interlock you have more options on which circuits you can utilize during a power outage vs a six circuit manual transfer switch.

unless your local code absolutely requires the use of a manual transfer switch re-route box, I highly recommend you just use an interlock. a manual transfer switch box will require you to pre-select 6 120V circuits or 4 120V + 1 240V circuits. this cannot be changed without re-doing the wiring. you are stuck with those circuits. I prefer the flexibility of an interlock which provides power to all circuits on both legs of the panel. now you can't use everything at once, but it allows you the use of all circuits in your house.

Step 1: Find an interlock kit that's compatible with your panel. Chances are the model in HD/Lowe's will not fit your box without a lot of modification. Here is where I bought mine: Mine was $150. Don't get the $69 ones floating around the internet unless it has been independently tested and certified. I know it seems like a bunch of BS to pay that for (2) sliding metal plates you could make yourself for under $10 and a few hours of your time - it is what it is. All about mitigating liability

Step 2: Buy generator inlet: [].

Step 3: Buy L14-30 generator cord if you want to run 240V. []. You can buy different lengths, I use a 50 ft cord but some may prefer to save money and get a 25 ft cord

Step 4: Go to HD/Lowe's and tell them what you are doing and they will assist you in getting flexible and rigid conduit if needed, romex, 30 amp double pole (240V) breaker for generator inlet that will fit your electrical box, etc. They can even help you get the right masonry drill bit if you are drilling into concrete/brick/stone and any necessary wall anchors if you don't have them

Step 5: Either do it yourself per the Youtube videos or pay an electrician. You are providing all major materials so he should only be charging you a labor rate and misc materials if needed (fasteners, etc). This job should not take longer than 2 hours. If you are running across long distances or through thick masonry...ok add an hour. You should not have to pay more than 2-3 labor hrs for this job. If you want to save money, you can do all of the labor intensive work of mounting the inlet, running the conduit, and running the romex...then all he has to do is make the final connection to your box. Figure he'll charge you (1) labor hour to drill the out the electricl panel front for the interlock and make the final box connection with the new circuit

see photos. I threw on a whole house surge protector on each panel since I had the panel open already. the reason why I have 2 inlets is b/c I have 2 separate service panels

FYI - as you noted, this will not power a central A/C but would easily power window / portable A/C's
