$300 isn't chump change but why lay out 2X that much on a brand that normally is known for poor quality/entry level items at best? If the Ryobi was $150 it might possibly be worth the gamble but $600--never.seen these the other day and was wondering the same thing, and yall make 300 dollars seem like chump change
agreed, their tools and power equipment are pretty much disposable equipment, so I would not expect anymore than that from a generator they put their name on...$300 isn't chump change but why lay out 2X that much on a brand that normally is known for poor quality/entry level items at best?

Your Champion won't run  400's?i own ryobi products that ive never had any problem with at all so i think the brand is a good brand, not the best but no problems with them, and whos to say that honda wont fall apart, everything breaks, but before i spend 900-1000 on a honda ill just buy another champion
oh ok i read it wrong it does just fine, eventually i would like to go inverter, so that i can use it while camping and at the house if need be without the extra noise that the champion puts out.See the question mark?
Just asking---I was under the impression you were changing gennys.
That has been my experience with Ryobi also.I dont have any experience with this particular piece of equipment but I do have experience with Ryobi and personally everything I have that is ryobi sucks!!!! I will never buy another RYOBI ANYTHING ever again. Their weadeaters suck...lasted about 1 year before I started having problems with it. Threw it in the trash after it was 3 years old. Bought a ryobi rechargable tool set because I got it mostly free and it lasted about 2 years but the batteries are terrible. My old used dewalt was 10 times better and it was 3 years older. So with this said they broke me on Ryobi...will never buy another one!
Interesting. I've only had one item of theirs, a 14v portable drill. Bought it when we started our house. That drill lasted thru the entire build, driving about half of every drywall screw in the house and all the deck screws on the full length front porch and the back deck along with whatever else you can think of that a drill would have been used for during a build. 14 years later it still works like a champ.That has been my experience with Ryobi also.
