If your in the market for one, this is a heck of a price. For $60 you can extend the warranty to 6 years

"Stackable - The space-saving ParaLINK parallel kit design allows you to connect and stack two 2000-watt inverters to double your output power."

Looking at the pictures, I sure don't see how these can be stacked.

Edit: Answering myself, there's a picture in the Product Brochure that has them stacked. The parallel kit goes between the 2 units, forming a base for the top one on top of the bottom one. Pretty clever, but hope it's stable. Must make for a pretty high CG.

The linked Home Depot page has a link to an illustrated parts list. Kudos to Champion for freely providing that.

I work part time at a small engine shop, we turn the Chinese knockoffs away because parts and service information are too hard to source. As John Ruskin noted over 150 years ago the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Before I get flamed some are happy with these products but many are not.

You must be a Honda fan.

I have only seen comments regarding Champions excellent warranty service, customer service and parts service.

Oh, and by the way I have a Honda 2200/2500 watt, Champion 3000/3500 watt and Northern Tools North Star 4400/5500 watt with Briggs and Stratton Vanguard engine. All excellent generators. I had to replace the carbs on the Honda and North Star but that was my fault.

Champion generators are not "your usual Chinese knockoff". Their headquarters and design facilities are right here in California:

Other than Yamaha, Champion is about the only inverter generator I would buy after Honda.

Here's another Champion 2000 watt stackable inverter generator at a great price:
