Damn that sucker is heavy 110 lbs. Think I'll stick with my 2 Champion 2000 watt gens. Electric start is nice but would need a crane to load and unload it .

Yeah... I bought a Champion 7kw generator, and while it's unbelievably awesome and has the remote start, it's really loud and weight like 230 pounds. I have to bring a ramp just to get it in and out of the bed of the truck. I carry it in the trailer when not carrying too many toys.

Been comparing the Champon 73536i 2000 watt inverter with paralleling kit.
It compares favorably with the Honda 2000i (and the new 73540i has a USB charger built in to boot). A bit over 10 pounds heavier though; but a few hundred bucks cheaper. Amazon.com: Champion Power Equipment 73536i 2,000 Watt 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator (CARB Compliant): Home Improvement

Still looking for a two generator extended run kit for them. Waiting for an answer from Berg. Right now the Hondas are in the lead if I can't find a dual feed kit.

I bought my 2 red 73538i's about a year ago off eBay. They were refurbished and came with the parallel interface. Paid $870 for em they have worked flawlessly since then. I'll admit I have only used them 3 or 4 times. I will be using them for 4 days next weekend. If you find a off the shelf extended run setup please let me know.

There are no commercially available extended run tanks specifically for the champs as I said before....their design does not really support a suction based aux tank....you COULD use (and it has been done) a gravity fed tank....but that has inherant issues as well.....if you do however find a specific commercial solution for an aux tank I would love one too....

Ahh yes...I couldent remember what tank he used as it was specifically NOT for the champs. ..it was a MARINE tank...I have been toying with the idea for one as well for the twins, but thus far have managed without being too terribly bothered by the current run time...if u do it, do a write up and performance eval!....thanks
