The recommended oil change maintenance has proved to be useful for users – commenting that it is vital for the smooth performance of the 41135.
A minority of customers have expressed dissatisfaction with the design and quality of the oil filler cap, claiming that it is prone to leaking and requires a wrench to tighten it properly. Users have said that if the design problem with the fuel spillages was amended otherwise the 41135 would be the ideal portable generator. As is common with portable fuel powered generators, reviewers have commented that the generator emits a loud, off-putting sound however it seems that it is no louder than any other similar generator on the market. Some experienced users have recommended tightening the fuel cap even further so as to avoid air getting into the tank thus creating a vacuum and causing the generator’s performance to become unpredictable.
Overall, customers have been very positive about the reliability and dependability of the Champion Power Equipment 41135 from domestic backup power supply purposes to small jobsite applications.
