CO Shield Carbon Monoxide Automatic Shutdown

CO Shield, a safety feature, automatically shuts off the generator if it detects Carbon Monoxide—before it reaches unsafe levels. CO Shield does not allow the generator to run indoors, with or without the windows open. Never run a generator in an enclosed space. Always use a Carbon Monoxide detector in your home. Position your generator at least 10 to 20 feet from your home with the exhaust pointing away from all buildings.

6500 Watt Generator Engine

Powered by a Champion 389cc OHV engine, the 6500 watt generator has plenty of power for all your needs. It runs on regular gasoline, propane*, and natural gas. The Multi-Fuel Engine’s low-oil sensor automatically detects low oil and shuts down to prevent engine damage. Electric start and cold start technology simplify startup, especially in cold weather. Uses 5W-30 Oil (included).

The engine operates at 74 dBA—compare to the average home vacuum cleaner—quiet compared to other generators with a similar power capacity.

What Can a 6500 Watt Generator Run?

The 6500 Watt Champion Generator can run any load or combination of loads that does not exceed the continuous load rating of 6500 Watts for gasoline, 6000 for propane, or 5500 watts for natural gas. The load with the highest starting watts must not exceed the generator maximum surge or running watts capacity by itself or while supporting other loads. 

For example, if a Central AC Unit Requires 3000 Running Watts and 8000 Starting Watts, the Champion 6500 Watt Generator could run AC unit, but not much else because the generator maximum starting power is 8175 Watts. Any load greater than 175 watts would exceed the generator maximum whenever the AC unit starts. Use of a soft starter on the AC Unit could alleviate this restriction.
