Champion Generators

I'm in the market for a new Generator to replace my new clunked out Troy-Bilt (see my "My Non-Working Generator" thread below for those details). I've been having my eye on Champion now and wondering how you all like them. They also got good reviews and I like the 3 Year Warranty. Customer Service also seems to be pretty good. Y'all let me know what you think about this one:

Re: Champion Generators

My brother has a Champion and likes it, but it tends to start hard. He'll pull and pull on that rope even if the thing has sat for only a couple of weeks. Once started, it runs well.
I tease him with the fact that I've never pulled more than twice to start my HF generator.

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

Interesting as in the reviews (112 of them) they say one of the best things about it is the "Easy Starting".

Re: Champion Generators

I have a couple of HONDAs ...fuel efficient and super quiet...if you NEED a generator, anything is better than no electricity...so if the price is right and you have the flexibility and memory to "exercise" it every few weeks just get it..years ago a generator was a luxury...today they have become a necessity

My Troy-Bilt was pretty loud and my old PowerMate is also loud. I'm hoping the Champion would be a little better. It states:

"With a noise level of 74 dBA from 23 feet, which is a bit louder than a vacuum cleaner".

I'm not sure how loud "74 dBA" is. ??
