As with all of Champion's generators, this model includes Cold Start Technology to help make starting easier in cold weather.
To protect the engine, a sensor detects low oil levels and automatically shuts it down. It won't run again until more oil is added
The unit is CARB compliant and EPA Certified, meaning it can be used in all 50 states, including California.
The generator does not have an electric starter, but a manual easy to pull recoil cord. Nor does it have a fuel gauge or an Eco Mode (the latter is only available on inverter generators).
This model incorporates a feature Champion call Volt Guard™. This is a built-in surge protector to help prevent overloads and ensure your connected equipment, such as TVs, computers, your appliances, remain safe. The standard THD rating is 15% or less under load. But if you need to connect sensitive electronics, Champion recommend you use a line conditioner, or consider choosing an inverter generator, such as their model 100574
If you intend to operate the generator at high altitude Champion can provide a high altitude carburetor main jet. You will need this because engine power and generator output reduces by about 3½% for every 1000 feet above sea level. Champion's Technical Support Team can give you instructions on how to install it. You can also read some important information here
about operating a portable generator at altitude.
