The Champion 201194 is powerful and versatile because it runs on both 120V and 240V. This is made possible by its dual-fuel technology. When powered by gasoline, it has a running wattage of 9,200W and a maximum wattage of 11,500W. When run on propane, it has a rated power of 8280 watts and a peak power of 10350 watts. The generator has both a simple and elegant pull-start mechanism and an electric starter (battery included). It has a noise level of 74 dBA (A tad noisier than a vacuum cleaner). The 201194 can run for about 10 hours at 0.5 load on a full tank of gasoline and 7.7 gallons of fuel (fuel consumption is approximately 0.77 GPH). It can run for about 5 hours if propane is used (on a 20 lbs tank – propane consumption around 0.94 GPH). Due to its relatively high THD (20%), the 201194 can’t be used to power sensitive electronic devices.
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.The 201194 is also transfer switch ready because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.You can easily connect it to your breaker box to power your home when the power goes out.
One part of the 201194’s control panel is a digital Intelligauge data center.This gives you information about the voltage, frequency, and lifetime run hours, which helps you keep track of its activity and status.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 Champion 201194 comes with a funnel, oil hose, and propane hose, as well as the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual to get you up and running quickly.
The Champion 201194 is 28.9 inches long, 28 inches wide, and 26.2 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.The generator weighs 209.4 pounds, so it may be hard to move or transport it by hand, even though it is technically a “portable” generator (movable).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.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.

- 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.
