Spend thousands on your rigs, but try to save a buck on a generator. I'm camped next to them often.

The Predator is the only knock-off I've seen that actually is pretty quiet.


Speak for yourself. I have more invested in my generators than I paid for my 5er.

Update on the Champion:

I ran the generator at home for 8+ hours. Break in and oil change.

Someone mentioned that theirs seemed to get quieter after 20 or so hours. I didn't think much of the comment.

Now that I am out in the woods with the genny running it appears to be settling down and running quieter.

My neighbors don't hate me.... Yet.... [emoticon]
