The gasoline-powered 389 cc OHV 4-stroke engine is the heart of the Champion 201033. It has a 120/240V output and a running power of 6,000W and a peak power of 7,500W. The noise level of the generator is set at 74 dBA (A tad noisier than a vacuum cleaner). It has a pull-start mechanism, which is a common way to start a motor. The 201033 can run for about 11 hours at 0.5 load on a full tank, since it can hold 7.7 gallons of fuel (fuel consumption is approximately 0.7 GPH). The THD (20%) of the 201033 is too high for it to be used to power sensitive electronic devices.
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are among the 5 AC outlets on the control panel.The 201033 is ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.If the power goes out, you can easily connect it to a breaker box and keep your home running.
On the 201033’s control panel, there is an Intelligauge meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This lets you keep track of its status and activity.A built-in fuel gauge makes it easy and quick to check how much gas is in the generator.In terms of safety, the generator can be used without worry because it has an automatic shut-off for low oil and an overload protection (circuit breaker).Volt GuardTM, which is built into Champion, protects your equipment and appliances from voltage spikes.The unit also has CO ShieldTM technology, which keeps an eye on the amount of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas that builds up in the generator when the engine is running.CO ShieldTM automatically turns off the engine and lights up a red LED if it finds high levels of CO gas.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.Along with the basic paperwork and an owner’s manual that will help you get the generator going right away, the Champion 201033 comes with a funnel and oil.
The Champion 201033 is 28.7 inches long, 27.6 inches wide, and 25 inches tall.It has a typical open frame design that makes it stable and allows it to be raised above ground level.The device was made to work well in harsh conditions and in the great outdoors.Even though the generator is technically considered to “be portable,” it will be very hard to move it by hand because it weighs 164 pounds (in the sense that it is movable).But its difficult mobility is fixed by a wheel kit (dia:8) “Once it’s on the floor, it will be easier to move because of the handle that folds down.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-201033 compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
A US-based producer of power equipment, Champion Power Equipment was established in 2003.The comparatively tiny business has established a name for itself in the portable generator market as well as the larger power equipment market, with a concentration on heavy duty machinery like log cutters, snow blowers, chipper shredders, etc.Their whole product line is American-engineered.The corporation does not, however, disclose the country of origin of its parts.
There is a warranty on the Champion 201033 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Champion’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long the warranty on a Champion generator lasts.You can also call their customer service line at 1-877-338-0999.
