Questions & Answers

I have a light duty welder that operates fine off 120/20 outlets plus a 100 ft extension cord. Will this work?

Asked by: rick
Thanks Robert@honda I mentioned the 100' cord because of the expected voltage loss- the welder operates fine with that loss... I am only worried about the GFI snapping to to the immediate draw once I start welding. The wattage-amp-volts seem fine for this generator to supply the welder... The generator will free me from the extension cord and make it easier to weld remotely from my utility power sources.

2,800-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Inverter Generator with Eco-Throttle and Oil Alert is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.

I ordered this inverter generator for our travel trailer and backup to my home. Compared to other smaller Honda's it is quite a bargain and I got it on sale too. It is a very nice unit and has worked perfectly as I expect from Honda and I am great with maintenance so I expect it to last me for many years to come trouble free. I was disappointed that I had expected it would power the 13,500BTU air conditioner in our new travel trailer because according to the numbers it should work. But when the compressor comes on the unit dies. My mistake I should have bought a larger generator. But the weight is an issue and this one at only 67 lbs. will be a keeper in spite of no air conditioner. I am nearly 70 and I have to be realistic.

Came yesterday.........added 12 oz of Honda 10W30 oil and some gas and it started up on the first pull. It was a little noisier than the EU2000 I just replaced it for.......much quieter in "economy." I bought a furniture dolly in HD and the EG2800 fit great and I used electrical ties to secure it to the wood frame on the dolly. Seemed like a more practical solution at $19.95 than a $150 Honda wheel kit. Honda does not seem to have a cover for this model but there was a WEN on the Home Depot online site that looked fairly close in measurements. So far, very happy with my new EG 2800.

Thanks Honda, the leader of the pack!

I needed a inverter generator for my travel trailer with enough power to start and run my 13,500 BTU AC. This unit fits the bill. I ran it for about 5 hours powering my AC, the TV and lights without any problem. The unit is quiet at low throttle a little noisier when powering the AC but the noise level is not annoying. It is light enough for a 70 year old to lift into my truck. Just what I had been waiting for from Honda.
