Description

The Champion Power Equipment 100496 5000-Watt Portable Generator is the perfect combination of versatility and convenience. An ideal companion for your next weekend project or wherever you might need additional power, this generator can also provide plenty of backup power for your essentials during an outage.

Power up with Champion’s reliable recoil start, plus Cold Start Technology ensures a quick start in cold weather.

Designed for safety with convenient push-to-reset circuit breakers, a low oil shut-off sensor plus an included oil funnel for easy changes, this unit includes 1.2-quarts of recommended 10W-30 engine oil.

The reliable 292cc single-cylinder OHV Champion engine produces 6250 starting watts and 5000 running watts, and will run for up to 9 hours at 50% load when the 5.7-gallon tank of gasoline is full. Easily monitor power output and track maintenance intervals with Intelligauge, which allows you to keep track of voltage, frequency and operating hours.

With a noise level of 74 dBA from 23 feet, which is a bit louder than a vacuum cleaner, this machine can handle most essentials in an outage. During your next project, you’ll be able to run multiple power tools at the same time so you can get the job done.

There’s no need to worry about your equipment and appliances since our Volt Guard™ built-in surge protector prevents overloads and keeps your equipment safe from spikes in voltage.
