First class product
I researched generators for dozens of hours and just could not find anything to beat The Honda. Fit,finish, features and performance are second to none.My only issue is that this model has no hour meter.
by Cheez
Great generator!
Easy to setup. Started right up, smooth and quiet! Can't wait to use it on my next camping trip! I would prefer a remote start, which is not a built-in option, but there is a kit for that.
by Jan O
I bought this generator because of the quality of the product even thought it was a lot more expensive. When I received it I prepped it per the manual & tried to start it. It wouldn't start. I thought it smelled flooded so I went to dry the spark plug. When I opened the spark plug cover I found the spark plug wire cap broken. Needless to say I'm not very happy. I didn't mind paying extra for it because I will take quality over cost every time. Now I have to repair it right out of the box.

Back-up generator for home
Just got it and was hoping for at least a wheel kit ,Part Number 06425-ZS9-020AH; before using it but guess no support in my area. My power company sdg&e, said they are turning off power in 3 days so was also thinking to have the wheels on to make it easier before adding gas and oil.

Easy start up, quiet,good for backup . Good price,easy maintenance.
Works great, easy to use
I bought the Honda EU3000iS during a power outage in my area.This is the first generator I bought Honda because of it's reputation for reliability and quality.I used the generator to power my refrigerator,wi-fi,computer,tv and lights for 12 hours during a power outage it ran flawlessly.Two features I would like to see is away to attach a trickle charger without removing the end panel cover and a natural gas or propane powered generator.
by RonT
Love it!
We purchased our Honda generator so we can hook it directly into our house. We are in the process of making that a reality this week. To have dependable power during power outages and storms will be a great relief.

Perfect for the Historical Texas Winter Storm
I bought this generator in early 2020 to prepare for Hurricane season. We didn't need to use in until the 2021 Texas Winter Storm when we were out of power for 5 days.This thing is so quiet and fuel efficient! It ran perfectly 24x7 for 5 days. Powered 2 space heaters, 2 TV's, Internet router, son's gaming PC, 2 fridges, several lamps, electric cooking plate, coffee maker, several phone/tablet chargers, etc. I had to adjust things across 3 power strips as they keep tripping diue to the high-current electric space heaters but once I got that all spread out evenly, it worked perfect. I got 10+ hours out of a full 3.5 gallon tank on average. Just a fine piece of very well built equipment and we love it! Thank you for a great product!!
