Product Overview

The EB5000 is the ultimate in portable, commercial-grade jobsite generators. Its heavy-duty construction is made to withstand the rigors of the industrial jobsite. It comes standard with a wheel kit, easy fold handles and a hanger kit with lifting eye. With a large 6.2 Gal. fuel tank and a Honda iGX commercial engine with Oil Alert, you can be confident that this Honda generator will be ready to get the job done, anytime that you are.

  • Honda's innovative iGX series engines deliver exactly what you have always wanted: reliable, optimal performance, this new generation of intelligent computer-controlled engines operate automatically with much better, simpler and faster controls
  • Honda's exclusive iAVR technology ensures a consistent flow of power regardless of the load, no need to worry about power fluctuations ruining your valuable tools, iAVR technology also enables the generator to operate well above its maximum rating for up to 10 seconds to start high initial amp draw equipment
  • 120/240-Volt selector switch - more usable power, more flexibility: choose between using both 120 and 240-Volt or 120-Volt only, this allows for the total generator output to be available through any of the 120-Volt outlets, limited only by the capacity of the individual outlet, this enables you to power units with larger wattage requirements
  • Keep you working, all day long, the EB5000 runs approximately 11.2 hours at half load and 8.1 hours at full load, keep you working
  • All circuits GFCI protected: the EB5000 offers neutral bond and full generator GFCI (ground fault circuit protection) on all outlets
  • Comes highly equipped, to make traversing the jobsite easier: easy to use, wheel barrow styled easy folding handles, crane hook eyelet, a two wheel kit and reinforced standing legs
  • Oil alert protection for peace of mind: protects the generator by shutting the engine off when low oil is detected
  • EB5000 offers neutral bond and full generator GFCI (ground fault circuit protection) on all six outlets, six outlets for easy connection of multiple tools
  • All sold units will be warranty registered as commercial use
  • Assembly required

is this the best portable generator u have

Asked by: fred
I believe Honda is the best portable generator on the market. The engines are top notch and far above the common big box store brands. Their compression is low for easy pull starts and relatively quiet compared to other makes of the same horsepower. If your sure a 5,000 w generator will cover your needs then this is the one to get.

If the output voltage is 240v can I use it in my home which is 120v do I need a step down transformer 240/120v?

Asked by: Ramco
Ramoco: First, I'd avoid this EB-series model for home use, and look at the Honda EG5000 or EM5000 instead. The EB models are designed for construction and rental use, and are not 100% compatible with a transfer switch, which is needed to connect any generator to your home wiring. Always consult with a licensed electrician to ensure the generator and transfer switch are safely installed according to all local codes and regulations. -Robert@Honda

I am considering the EB5000XK31 vs. The EG4000C and EG6500C. The EG4000C and 6500C have DAVR which provides voltage stability within +- 1%. The EB5000XK31 fits me most, however it does not show DAVR feature. It has iAVR instead.Can you provide its voltage stability range? I,\.e +- 5% or 1%? Thank you
Asked by: mike
Mike: The EB5000XK3 has a voltage stability specification of ±1%. -Robert@Honda

is it quite

Asked by: camper
At 72 dB, the EB5000 would not really be considered a quiet generator. It is an open frame design, so all the mechanical parts are exposed and you'll hear noise from not just the exhaust, but the cooling fan, air being drawn into the engine, etc. I'd say it is at least as loud as a home vacuum cleaner. For a really quiet generator, consider Honda's EU-series models, which are fully enclosed and provide super-quiet operation. For example, the EU3000i is a lightweight, 3000 watt model that is quiet enough to stand next to and have conversation. Search for item 206191966. -Robert@Honda

This generator is used for construction and does the job with ease. The low oil shut off helps save the engine if my employees forget to check the oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honda Quiet and easy to start. I have 12 honda motors on various pieces of equipment and they always come thru! Highly recommend
Date published: 2016-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very best way to go is a Honda. One of the finest generators made. The motor far surpasses some of the other big names and you don't have to bother buying one with the battery start. The low compression ration makes the pull start so easy any 10 yr. old could pull it without a problem. They always start by the second pull so save your money. Little tip: Use a good SYNTHETIC OIL and buy it by the 5 qt. container. Should you ever need to change the oil during a prolonged power outage you'll have all you need on hand. Also it's a good idea to start it up and put it under some type of load for a minute or two every couple of months at minimum. Buy a few outlet plug covers ( very cheap dollar store item ) and plug the outlets when not using the unit to keep out dust and debris. Always use a good gas additive also for storage and normal use because of this new gas out there.
