Champion 7500 Watt Generator Review – Durable & Powerful
In this article, we have given an unbiased review of the champion 7500-watt generator based on our experience, user rating price tag, overall feature, and reliability.
After spending 6 days I did lots of noise, load, runtime, voltage, and other essential tests to ensure that this machine can be a good investment for RV, home, or worksite owners.
Like all champion machines this generator comes in a pretty decent protective packaging, I didn’t get any crack or bent on the frame of my unit, during the unboxing I got Engine Oil, a Funnel, Wheel Kit with a foldable handle, a Propane (LPG) Hose and some user manuals.
Initial Setup Of Champion 7500-Watt Generator:
The initial setup of this unit is pretty easy, I did it within 15 minutes, you just need to attach the wheel kit, foldaway handle, stand, and battery plug. Also, you have to pour the engine oil and gasoline, attach the propane hose properly.
Design And Build Quality:
The design of this unit is pretty ordinary; you will not find any futuristic design like the champion 4500 or 2000 watts generator.
Also, this unit is not that compact and lightweight it has more than 200 lbs. of weight that can be managed to transport with the help of wheels and a foldable handle, however, without it, you can even lift up for about 1 minute unless you are a weight lifter :p).
When it comes to the built quality this machine has a metallic frame with cast iron sleeves for added protection.
Outlets And Essentials:
Fuel Tank Size, Fuel Options, and Runtime:
Since this machine is dual fuel we have done tests on both Gasoline and propane.
Gasoline Test: As per the manufacturer’s statement the unit has a 6.0 gallon of gasoline tank that can run for about 8 hours on a 50% load, but it only lasts for about 7 – 7.5 hours in my case with the same load. With a 25% load, I manage to get 14 – 15 hours which is amazing.
Propane Test: As per the manufacturer’s statement 20 pounds of LPG tank can provide about 5.5 hours of run on 50% load, however in my case I got 4.5 – 5 hours with the same load. I have purchased a huge size (100lb.) propane tank to avoid uninterrupted running.
Runtime Rating: 8/10 on gasoline, 6/10 on LPG it can be improved easily.
What Can Champion 7500-Watt Generator Run (Load Test)?
This beast comes with a 439cc Champions 4 stroke engine that can produce 9375 surges and 7500 running watts on gasoline; however, on LPG I got 8400 starting and 6750 running watts. Also, this machine has a built-in volt guard™ surge protector and cold start technology to avoid overloading and longer startup time.
Well, we have operated the below appliances smoothly.
|Appliance||Peak watts||Running watts|
|A standard fridge||1200||400|
|AC (10,000) BTU||1500||2500|
Capacity Rating: 9/10
How Loud Is Champion 7500-Watt Generator (Noise Level Test)?
Since this machine has a 439cc powerful engine that can produce decent power you can’t expect too much silent operation.
The manufacturer has stated that it can produce 73db from 23 ft. away which is not true at all, you have to place it at least 100 ft. away from your home or RV to get silent operation, however on the worksite you don’t have to put it 100 ft. away because we always wear earplugs to avoid noise pollution.

Champion 7500-Watt Generator comes with 3 years of the limited warranty and lifetime support of champions, also champions have lots of service centers around the globe you can easily replace your faulty unit with a newer one.
