Champion generators have been around for less than 10 years, but have become a leader in a competitive industry. Here are just a few of the reasons, plus two exciting new feature that they have to offer this year.
Have you ever noticed that some companies hit their market like a hurricane? One day, no one has ever heard of them, and the next they are setting the standard. So it was with Champion generators. Champion Power Equipment has only been around since 2003, but have taken their various markets by storm. They specialize in all aspects of their business, from product design to manufacturing them in their company owned factory in China, to full customer support for everything they manufacture. Their product lines include portable generators, transfer pumps, winches, and power washers. But it is Champion generators that have really impressed me lately.
Their generators are known for their dependability, affordability, and their durability. Champion pride themselves in their commitment to their customers. They do this by offering the best customer service and warranties in the business. Almost all callers through their customer service line reports a positive experience. Plus, if you call their technical support line, you will get an English speaking technician who really knows his stuff. They also offer a full 2 year warranty on all of their generators. This is one of the best warranties in the market. They can do this because they control the entire manufacturing process, including making their own engines. It is easier to offer a great warranty when you make everything, and are not relying upon another's components.
Champion can boast that they have never had to recall any of their generators. This is quite impressive in such a competitive market. This says a lot about the company. Primarily, that they won't rush a product to market, but that they make sure their new models are fully ready before release.
There are two new Champion generators hitting the market in 2010 that I really like. The first is a wireless remote electric start. We live in a cold winter climate, that often has a lot of snow. My father-in-law likes to show off his new truck by pushing a button and starting it from the kitchen! I have to admit, it sure beats running outside 10 - 15 minutes before you leave just to start the car! So, it makes sense to use the same technology on a generator. When your power goes out, it is often dark, or cold, or in the middle of a storm. If you can push a button and have instant back up power, you will really be happy! These Champion generators have a built in auto-choke and auto-power flow to help the engine start up, while protecting your appliances.
The second nice generator that is new this year is an inverter generator that is super quiet. These generators are stackable, and being parallel, you can easily chain them together to increase your power. Plus, when the electrical load is decreased, the generator automatically idles lower, which saves on fuel.
Winter and storm season will be upon you before your know it, don't get left out in the cold! Plan now, and a great place to start is by checking out Champion generators.
