    Anyone have any experience with this generator? I'm thinking of picking one up for running pellet stove. Figured I would have 6 months to find a deal. Anyone know anything about it?

    Not the greatest reviews on amazon. I own a standard generac generator and it works for my needs. Usually starts after 5 to 10 pulls. Nothing like a Honda. My power washer is 10 years old with a Honda and always starts within 2 pulls.

    IMO, start putting some $$ aside each paycheck, and buy the Honda before burning season in the fall. Quality unit, very quiet.

    There are also propane conversion kits for about $225. One 20lb tank should last 15-20 hours, depending on load.

    Over the years, I have found that nothing beats Honda for small engines. Snow Blower, Lawn mower etc. They are more money, but they are that for a reason.

    So whats the deal with champion. I only see refurbished units for sale. Do not see any new ones? Do they not sell them brand new?

    plenty of new ones online and in stores like cabelas and costco . don't think you looked very hard . http://supergenproducts.com/shop/

    lots of them sold at rv dealers too . these are not an unproven product .

    the refurbs are just a wicked good bargain for those looking at something less spendy .
