Customer Scores and Reviews
The Champion Power Equipment 42436 enjoys a feedback score of 4.5 out of 5 at the Amazon online store. This feedback has been provided by as many as 155 customers depending on their evaluation of the same. 4.5 is a goof feedback score for a portable generator that comes for a couple of hundred dollars only.
However, while going through the customer reviews, we have come across a couple of major set backs about this machine. The machine offers 20psi compression which often leads to ignition failure. Also the pull rope gets won out to the point of breaking quite soon. Also the machine doesn’t run for 10 hours at 50% load. After a few days of use, the machine will simply shut down after 10 minutes even at 40% load.
Whatsoever, at a price range of 200 dollars, the machine provides all that it is designed for. The few flaws it has can be corrected at the minimum possible expanse and effort. For a portable generator, the champion 42436 outshines others of its kind will the plethora of features it has to offer. Our personal feedback score about this machine would be 4.5+.
