If you like to camp a lot and you find yourself in need of electrical power all the time, the Yamaha 2000 generator may be a great solution for you. In case you have any doubts about it, this is the best 2000 watt generator being made today, at least if you believe the sales numbers. Actually, there a lot more reasons the Yamaha ef2000is is rated #1 in its class worldwide.
Yamaha is one of the world’s largest manufacturing companies. They are famous for building great motorcycles, automobiles, generators, musical equipment, and heavy equipment. Generators are one of the things they do best and the Yamaha 2000 watt generator is the best of the best. In truth, the only competition for this model is the Honda eu2000i. Anything else is not even worth considering if reliability and quiet operation means anything to you.
So what makes the top selling 2000 watt generator? Well, Yamaha has pretty much done everything right with this generator. First off, this is not the least expensive generator in the 2000 watt class. In fact, the Honda and the Yamaha 2000 watt generators generally run neck in neck as the most expensive 2000 watt portable generators. But since their nearest competitors make junk, the money you’ll pay for a Honda or a Yamaha is well worth it. Both of these generators are generally found to produce more power than the rating would suggest. Both are miserly when it comes to fuel consumption. They will run for many hours on a single tank of gas. Both are super quiet. Did you know that if you camp in national and state parks they have mandated decibel levels that your generator cannot exceed? Don’t take some junky Chinese generator to a national park. You’ll end up with a big fat fine. Naturally, both the Honda and Yamaha generators are super reliable. You’re going to pay more for these brands but they are going to provide you with years of trouble free service if just take care of the scheduled maintenance. Think about it. You are buying a generator to provide electricity so you can use your PC, watch TV, turn on some lights and maybe even run an air conditioner. If your generator fails and you are out in the middle of nowhere, you are up the creek without the proverbial paddle. Yes, you’ll find generators that cost about half of what these two great generators cost, but think about the consequences.
So what seperates the Yamaha from the Honda eu2000i? Well, it boils down to a couple of features that make the Yamaha more user friendly and easier to service. The Yamaha 2000 generator has a fuel gauge and the Honda does not. It’s nice to know when you are running low on fuel without having to take off the fuel cap and look in the tank. The Yamaha also has a much wider fuel fill spout. Spilling gas everywhere is just a drag. It’s also really easy to change the oil on the Yamaha while it’s a pain in the rear end to do it on the Honda generator. Which one do you think will get more oil changes?
The Yamaha generator ef2000is and the eu2000i are great generators. Either one is an excellent choice, just don’t buy anything else.
