The Champion 201110 has a 459 cc, 4-stroke, overhead valve (OHV) engine. It gives out 120/240V, runs on gasoline, and has a running wattage of 9,200W and a peak wattage of 11,500W. The generator has both a simple pull-start mechanism and an electric starter that is easy to use (battery included). It has a noise level of 74 dBA (A tad noisier than a vacuum cleaner). With a full tank, the 201110 can run for about 10 hours at 0.5 load, which is about 0.77 GPH (gallon per hour), because it can hold 7.7 gallons of fuel. The 201110 can’t be used to power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (20%).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes, a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle, and a 120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle are all on the control panel.Since it has a 14-50R outlet, this Champion unit is ready for use with an RV with a 50-amp service.In addition, since the 201110 bears a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it is easily connectible to a breaker box and can power your home in case of a power outage.
The status and activity of the 201110 can be easily checked on the control panel, which has an Intelligauge meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas is in it.When it comes to safety, this product has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without any worries.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.In addition to the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which will help you get started right away, the Champion 201110 comes with a funnel and oil.
The Champion 201110 is made with a typical open frame that measures L29.1 x W26.1 x H26.1 in, This gives it support and stability and gives you the option to raise it above the ground.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.Even though this device is technically portable (meaning it can be moved), it weighs 205 pounds and can be hard to move and use without special tools.But its wheel kit (dia:9.5) makes up for the fact that it is hard to move around “) and a folding handle that makes it easy to move once it’s on the ground.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-201110 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
Champion Power Equipment is an American company that has been making power tools since 2003.The small company has made a name for itself in the portable generator business and in the power equipment business in general, with a focus on heavy duty equipment like log cutters, snow blowers, chipper shredders, etc.Every one of their products is made in the US.But the company does not say anything about where their parts come from.
There is a warranty on the Champion 201110 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.
