Generator Selection

There are many factors you should consider when selecting a generator, including:
How you will use the generator
Noise level
Fuel efficiency & run time
Power output quality
Portability
Ease of starting
Durability & quality of craftsmanship
Service and support


How you will use the generator
The Honda EU Series inverter generators are primarily designed to be used for Home back up (i.e. emergency power) and for Recreational use (RV, camping, boating). The Super Quiet EU generators are quiet and easily portable.

Noise level

The noise level of your generator is a major factor in determining the right model.
Many areas have noise regulations that may impact generator usage,
particularly at night. Noisy generators are unsuitable for many applications, including camping, powering outdoor events, and RVing. Most generators are labelled with a decibel rating. For every 10 decibel increases, the noise level is 10 times higher. A generator that runs at 70 decibels is ten times as loud as a generator that runs at 60 decibels. Honda 4-stroke generators are renowned for their quiet operation and reliability.

Fuel efficiency & run time
Honda Inverter generators feature their Eco-Throttle, which automatically adjusts the engine speed to match the power needed. This allows for maximum fuel  
efficiency. Because EU generators are so fuel efficient, they boast incredibly long run times, as much as 20 hours on a single tank of gas.

Power output quality
Voltage regulation controls the power output of the generator . Consistent power is extremely important. Fluctuations in power can cause equipment to shut down or even damage the appliance.

Honda Inverter Generators produce the cleanest power of all. These units are ideal for sensitive electronics, such as computers. Inverter generators offer a number of other benefits, including less noise, lower weight, and greater fuel efficiency as
compared to traditional models. Honda revolutionised the use of inverter technology in portable generators with their Super-Quiet EU series.

Size & ease of transport
Consider how you will be moving and storing the generator. Look for  compact, lightweight models, and handles on the larger models.


Ease of starting
All Honda generators are powered by their reliable 4-stroke engines. Honda engines are legendary for being easy to start. A number of models offer electric start as an added convenience. Electric start models include the EU30iS and EU70iS.

Durability and quality of craftsmanship
Quality and reliability are critical when selecting a generator. Honda generators have a well earned reputation for reliability and durability. Honda products are tested
extensively and manufactured using the best quality materials. Honda generators offer dependable power and keep on running year after year.

Service and support
Because a generator is a major investment, look for a manufacturer that stands
behind their product fully. In particular, service and parts support are essential for your peace of mind.

Honda generators are backed by a comprehensive warranty and the best dealer network in the country. Getting the best in class service is never in doubt.
Parts and service support are readily available across the country and Honda’s dealers have trained staff ready to support you.
