Honda eu1000

,
January 29, 2016

from Mass
Fairly quiet, very compact, easy to start and use. Got it as a failsafe to run 2 propane monitors and some lights in event of blizzard or hurricane in coastal Mass. Set up a dedicated gen outlet in the house connected to gen cords away from house. Stuck it in my covered and not too airtight trash barrel bin for duration of Jonas Blizzard-no temperature issues with exhaust during hourlong trial run but lucky not to need it. Gen has integral fuel pump-refueling the small tank could be a real pain-but got a flat 6 gal boat tank and aftermarket gen fuel tank cap that should extend me out to nearly a day between refueling and it has a gauge so I don't have to guess fuel level, nor do I have to turn it off to fuel up. Plenty on the Net on how this is done. Also intriguing retrofits to convert it to propane. Going to fabricate a dedicated enclosure with cement board and makeup air grills-waterproof, weatherproof, fireproof now that I don't have to access to fuel so often. This is a very versatile and compact device.

One of the very best!

What a fine little generator! I've already run it for ten hours, just breaking it in. I used a radiant electric heater set at 400 watts just to provide a bit of a load. I initially installed Honda 10W30 oil before running it in. Then I changed the oil. (it showed a fair amount of discoloration and a trace of very fine metallic particles just like you'd expect for the first oil change.) The second time I used Amsoil 10W30 small 4-stroke engine fully synthetic oil. It's expensive, but one quart will cover four oil changes. That might take several years to complete!
This little generator uses very little fuel, provides enough clean electric power to meet most of my needs, runs cool and quiet, and can easily be carried under one arm to be put away when I'm through. It has cranked every time on the first pull. What more could I ask?
Yes, these Honda generators are fairly expensive. However, they do have a reputation for providing long, dependable service if maintained well. In the long run, I figure the benefits will outweigh the expense, and the savings on fuel and oil will help with that, too. I'm very happy with this purchase. I bought it on sale at my local Northern store, AND I qualified for a $100 dollar Northern Gift Card with that purchase. I guess it wasn't such an costly generator after all.

the honda 1000 on a sail boat

,

from Islesboro, ME
I live in fear of being off shore under sail and one day not being able to start the engine because someone left the switches on. Today I took my honda to the boat after the honda had been sitting for 3 years. It started on the second crank and charged my three batteries from 11 volts to 13.5 volts using the sailboats 110 volt charger. Once charged the battery started the engine and the 60 amp engine powered generator topped off the two house batteries. What a treat to not have to worry about not being able to start the engine.

awesome little generator

We were looking for a light weight and super quiet generator to charge the batteries and run small electrical loads at our camper in the Colorado Mountains. The camper came equipped with a 3,200 watt propane generator that is very loud and uses a lot of propane. The 1000 watt Honda is very quiet, starts on one pull every time, is very light weight and hardly uses any gas. It suits our needs perfectly. There are less expensive generators on the market, but you get what you pay for.

Camping here we come!

We recently purchased our Honda generator because I have not been able to find the battery packs to run my CPAP at night when we camp. Worked flawlessly exceeding all expectations. Ran over 10 hrs on a single tank of gas using the Eco-switch (only ran the CPAP though, your mileage may vary depending on what you have plugged into it). Glad we got it and I'm sure we will enjoy its use for many more trips. Placed it about 20 feet away from our sleeping area and only knew it was running because my CPAP machine was working.

Quiet and reliable...

This is my 3rd portable generator. The first one worked great but was so noisy I got rid of it. The second one was quieter but too noisy also. The third one was the Honda 1000i and what a difference. Quiet... so quiet you can carry on a normal conversation with it running beside you. The ECO device works perfect too (the others did not), and it will run for hours on a half gallon of gas. You want quality and reliability... buy the Honda.
