Product Overview

  • Durable, easy-starting, long-life Honda commercial engine
  • Honda-exclusive DAVR (Digital Auto Voltage Regulation)
  • 5000 starting watts and 4500 running watts.
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

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.

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

I'm writing this as I experience a power outage and I couldn't be happier. Strong winds have knocked out power in my part of the state - but I have my heat going (2 pellet stoves), coffee brewing, and an egg and toast breakfast (on a hot plate and toaster). This Honda Generator is not struggling at all. It's a bit loud, but given the power output, that's understandable. There isn't even a flicker in the light that I have plugged in. Sure, it's heavy to lug around, but it's well worth it considering I'm toasty warm and 27 degree winds are whipping around outside.
