I was very impressed with the Echo BearCat 3500 after I finished testing it. This is an inexpensive Chinese generator that is giving Honda and Yamaha a run for their money in terms of product quality, the fact that it sells for just over half the price is an added bonus. Our Echo Bearcat 3500 4 Function wireless remote control kit is the most advanced most feature packed model on the market today. It is the only one that starts and stops your Echo BearCat 3500 with two channels and offers both warm start (w/o choke), cold start (w/choke), the ability to move in and out of the Eco-throttle mode and the ability to turn on and off the lower outlet, all from a high end four channel wireless radio remote control. The choke operation is fully automatic, the electric choke is activated any time the electric starter is engaged. Nobody else has a remote control system for the Powerhorse 3500 with this many features.
We have tested this unit at our location and found an unobstructed range of almost 400 feet as long as the antenna is mounted to the top of the generator. Mounting the antenna under the side cover as shown in the installation video or other obstructions and weather conditions will affect the range of this unit. An optional long range transmitter is available to extend the range to almost 2000Ft.

Features and Benefits
- The Pinellas Power Products Wireless Remote Control kit uses a separate toggle switch to power up the radio receiver.
- The Pinellas Power Products Wireless Remote Control kit can switch your generator in and out of economy mode. The owner’s manual says to start the generator in standard mode then switch to economy mode, so what is the point in buying a remote control that can’t operate the economy switch.
- The Pinellas Power Products Wireless Remote Control kit can turn one of the 20A outlets on and off by remote control while leaving the generator turned on (this is great for items that you wish had their own remote control, but don’t).
- Auto choke functions when the starter motor is energized.
- Auto choke function works with remote kit or key start.
- In the possible event of an auto choke failure, manual choke is still functional for starting.
- In the possible event of a remote control failure the normal starting and operation of the generator will not be affected.
- The start and stop harness plugs into the factory harness connections so few individual wire connections are required.
- The radio receiver has low voltage cut out function to protect unit relays if battery voltage drops below 10.2V. Remote control will not function until battery is charged. (This does not affect recoil or key starting) Do not leave the unit in standby mode for more than 2 days because this can drain the battery, unless you are using a Honda battery maintainer, part number 32670-HPE-800 or 31670-BMS-004 or a solar battery maintainer.
- Maintenance procedures and specifications are not changed by the installation of this kit.
- Overload protection, low oil shut down, ground fault, and all safety features are unaffected by the installation of this kit.
- Up to 8 remotes can be programmed for use with each remote kit.
- The remote key fob is protected by a sliding cover to reduce the chance of pocket dialing.
