Hey guys, my husband has been looking into the 3500w Predator from Harbor Freight. I was going to get it for him BF, but saw this. My question is the 100w of power difference. What exactly will be lost if I pull the trigger on this one? I'm leaning heavily towards this one, but idk anything abt generators. This will be used mostly for running a camper when dry camping.

Google inverter generator differences.

interesting and cool, but not sure if I could personally justify the extra cost.


Neat technology though.

I would definitely choose this one over the Predator. Duel fuel, much better warranty, and it's cheaper.

Will it be too loud for camping? Trying to bring my projector with me for camping
Inverter generators, as this Champion is, do not generate electricity with a stator/coil requiring a 3600 RPM constant speed. Instead, an inverter - a complex assembly of voltage converters and suppressors - can convert mechanical energy to electricity with the RPMs used to match the amperage draw. The bigger the draw, the faster the engine runs, as opposed to a constant 3600 RPM which is buzz kill!

This is why the larger the inverter generator, the quieter it will be when being used, especially for typical camping duties. People will say that a 2K generator is sufficient and easier to manage - I disagree - it's better to buy the biggest generator for the dollar one can afford - especially for camping - because then the engine's running slow all the time and not chugging away at the top of its RPM band - which is much louder than idle.

When making coffee in the AM with a 2000W generator - it's running hard. A 4K generator will perk up a little bit.

Plus, there's expanded horizons - perhaps an RV in the future?

EDIT: I wanted to point out that the 3600 RPM has to be maintained ... fluctuations are electronics kill!

The more specific answer is the the cheaper units are loud and will annoy everyone around you. The benefit to the inverter is that it's quiet and hardly noticeable when running in comparison.

This has parallel output. It would be an expensive option, but you can run 2 of these with a parallel cable to connect them together and then you have your 240v output.
Please note that even with these two generators and Champion parallel kit they will not produce 240v. I just got this unit last week and already had the 3100 model from Costco. I just received the parallel kit yesterday and it says underneath the 30 amp plug and 50 amp plug of the parallel kit 120v and "not for 240v use". I wish it did though!

If you are going to be powering electronics (TV, computer equipment, etc), appliances or HVAC, an inverter is a must. They put out much cleaner power that won't harm these types of equipment.

I ordered mine Saturday night, it was delivered to central Illinois Tuesday (FedEx). Box was pristine, and generator packed quite well in the box.
