I bought a Champion 4000/3500 three years ago from Camping World on sale for $319 and have had no trouble with it. Cranks on the first or second pull and runs everything I need in the TT [Aviator Wright Flyer]. May not be the quietest unit on the market but at their now price of $425, you can buy a FLEET of Champions for the price of one equal rated Honda unit. Keep the oil changed and Sea Foam in the fuel and you should have no problem. ALL companies produce a "bad unit" now and then, but don't hold that against the entire product line.

I had a look at the manual, it does gives a db rating at 3 meters not 7 meters like most others do.

Every website that I have visited that are selling Honda 2000's give a rating of 53db at 7 meters. That is what I was going by.

Oh well, learned something new today.

My guess is--a little louder.

I also have the Champ 3100. It had some major issues right out of the box, took some carting it around to the local Champ warranty service center and finally shipping it back to the factory, but it appears to be fixed now. Won't know how it performs until I start using it this spring.
