Product Overview

  • Durable, easy-starting, long-life Honda commercial engine
  • Honda-exclusive DAVR (Digital Auto Voltage Regulation)
  • Economic, portable power runs 11 hours at half load
The EG5000 is the best of both worlds: a reliable source of "no frills" power and cost saving efficiency. Equipped with a rugged frame, Honda Commercial Engine. And an Auto Voltage Regulator this generator is a must have.
  • EG4000 uses Honda's exclusive DAVR (digital automatic voltage regulator), the DAVR is designed to hold the voltage stability within a +/- 1% range during operation, this provides more consistent power
  • Legendary Honda commercial-grade OHV engines are reliable, easy-to-start and incredibly rugged
  • 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 EG5000 runs approximately 11 hours at half load and 7.5 hours at full load, for a full day's hard work
  • Oil alert protection for peace of mind: protects the generator by shutting the engine off when low oil is detected
  • Tough one piece welded frame, helps protect the generators on all sides
  • All sold units will be warranty registered as commercial use

Questions & Answers

Does this generator have an automatic starter?

Asked by: Kim
Sorry, no. This model is pull-start only. Honda does make a number of electric start models, but none are automatic. For safety reasons, no portable generator has an automatic starter system. Only fixed-base generator, permanently mounted outdoors have automatic starting systems. -Robert@Honda

Curious why someone would pay thousands of dollars for this Honda 5000 generator, when you can by a Coleman Pro-Gen 5000 for under $400? Help me understand.
Asked by: WillNFLA
I had no electric or water (on well) for 8 days in the Florida heat & humidity. I just used two Coleman 5000W generators both with a 10HP Tecumseh engine for the past 8 days after Irma. 1 had not been started since 2004. After 2 evenings and 3 bottles of carb cleaner, cleaning the bowl and jets I somehow got it to run. At first it would run for 5 minutes, after 4 days I got it up to 2 hours. Another neighbor let me use his identical Coleman 5000 / Tecumseh generator. Of course it wouldn't start either, but after 2 hours I got it to run. Both Colemans were very noisy, constantly shutting off after 5, 11, 20 minutes or 2 hours. They always started with one pull. In 2004 I had 3 hurricanes, Jean, Francis & Charley, 17 days, no power or water. But I had a Honda 3800SX that ran all the time with NO PROBLEMS whatsoever. After my Coleman/Honda Hurricane Trials 13 years apart, there is a clear winner with no doubt, it's HONDA. I recall paying $1500+/- for the Honda in 2004, it was worth every dollar, I would do it again without hesitation (if I could find one during a hurricane)

Will it start and run a 13,500 but air conditioner

Asked by: Kevin
I ran two 12,000 BTU window units on a 2004 Coleman 5000 model. Based on using a Honda 3800 in the past I would guess the Honda 5000 would since mine did it with a refrigerator and TV
