The Champion 42431 is an excellent selection for anyone who's in the market for, or, searching for info. about a reliable 1500W generator.
Not only is the 42431 lightweight, quiet, and reliable; but, it also combines the best practices of Champion Power Equipment with all of the great features of Champion Portable Generators.
1200 Watts of consistent running power allows one to effectively supply energy to a number of independent components.
Moreover, if 1200 Watts is simply not enough to 'get-the-job-done,' the 42431 has a maximum (peak) capacity of a robust 1500W generator.
One of the main attractions of Champion Portable Generators, in my opinion, is the sheer versatility of the equipment.
Generally, Champion Power Equipment is suitable for several variant environments; the 42431 remains consistent with this welcome benefit.
To wit, many have asked whether or not the Champion 42431, a 1500W generator, is capable enough to join-the-ranks of more powerful generators for home use (since it only has 1200 Watts of running power.)
In short, our is answer (somewhat) clear: it depends…
Indeed, Champion Portable Generators can provide more than enough electricity for the majority of home essentials.
For example, a refrigerator, television, lamp(s), stereo system, accessories, etc., can all be run concurrently by this model.
Hence, with respect to minor application(s), a 1500W generator is well-able to run the basic functions of a house-hold for extended periods of time.
So, in this vein, the 42431 is a viable generator for home use!
Furthermore, on the opposite side of the equation, we have the more demanding loads relative to the typical home setting that, unfortunately, a 1200 watt generator will not be sufficient to adequately power.
As there is considerable diversity within a modern home (and family!), we encounter a few situations where 1200 Watt Champion Portable Generators will require either...
(a) A 'support' generator: perhaps, another 42431, or, a model such as the Champion 73531i, which is a 2000 watt inverter that performs admirably in 'support-missions.'
(b) More powerful Champion Portable Generators altogether.
If the requisite application is subject-to the most draining electrical currents (i.e. HVAC Systems; electric ovens; auto shops; restaurants; commercial operation(s) in general), then we'd recommend a single-source power supply such as the Champion 41534.
Model 41537, like the 42431, is a Champion Portable Generator; however, it belongs to the 'heavy-duty' class and boasts an impressive 7500 Watts of running power (9375W peak out-put.)
A 5000 Watt Rating (or above) is what we'd recommend for prolonged employment under the more strenuous conditions.
Technically being only a 1500W generator, the Champion 42431 admirably covers a wide-range of demands nevertheless.
Most notably, this 1200 watt model, 'tackles' tail-gating exceptionally well…
Thanks-to its lightweight (62lbs.), efficient fuel consumption (can be run 10 hours at 50% load capacity), the 42431 proffers a welcome combination of ample energy supply without being cumbersome in the process.
What's more, a relatively low noise-level (65 dBA at minimum distance), and innovative Intelligauge™ Display (digitally shows the total operating hours/frequency/volts), Champion Portable Generators seamlessly complements a BBQ Grill, ice chest(s), other essentials of an outdoors gathering.
Speaking of which, not only is this 1500W generator a 'staple' for tail-gating, but is equally effective on camp-grounds, outdoor parties, and hunting trips alike!
In summary, the Champion 42431 is a well-made, versatile portable generator.
A 1500W generator (peak-power) can provide sustained energy to facilitate an on-the-go, or, outdoors-oriented life-style/family.
