3400 watt Model # 100269 is pull start with no USB outlet
3400 watt Model # 100261 is remote start

that link is the #100233, and it is the 3400 WITHOUT remote/elect. start,
but the two asked about and pictured in post #1, are the #100261(3400w)and #100262(3500w),
they both DO HAVE remote/elect. start and their differences, or lack off, are explained in post #2,
I own the #100261, and love it, the remote is a great feature

Yep... but *THIS* page (from the Champion web site) shows the 3400w remote start model.

Yep.
Also the # 100269 seems to have some sort of Canadian endorsement.

The 3400 and 3500 also have dual fuel models.
Way to many 3400 & 3500 models to confuse a person.
But Champion sure does make great generators.

Yep.
Just keep in mind on the dual fuel models... the 3400 model rated output on propane (3060w) is LESS than when running on gasoline (3400w)

The 3500 model is 3150w propane and 3500w gasoline.

plus, the dual fuel models don't have remote start capability,.....
I called Bottom Line Trading (BLT) for info before ordering from them and one of the four owners answered the phone, (the one on the youtube video showing how to install the "increased run kit" that they (BLT) designed and sell),.... he said no remote for the dual fuel models yet because Champion hasn't engineered how to do that with the gas/propane system,.... on the Champion site also, someone asked about an "increased run kit" from Champion, the Champion answer is that they are aware of the demand for that and are considering it,....

I thought a BLT was a sandwich.........

yes that's right,......

5picker,... since you're interested in this gen., you may be interested in this,,....
last week I did the 5hr. break-in run under light load, ... today I wanted to know how long a run to expect under regular load with a full tank of gas,.. so its running right now under load of the ac, fridge and lights, but I wanted to know if I could add the water heater to that load,...... water tank was completely "room temp", the gen. had been running about 90min. and I clicked on the water heater switch, it revved up of course, but it handled that increased load with out any problem, ..... in about 30 min. the water was hot and I shut it off, ..... the ac never cycled off during that 30min. either,..... just a little FYI that you might find interesting,.......

This thread is about nothing more than whether the two generators (3400/3500 both built by Champion) are the exact, same generator... just with different branding.
