Honda generator review

A great thing about a Honda generator is that it able to bring power to you wherever you need it and when you need it. Whether it is at the campsite, on an RV trip, on the job site. Or for backup power at home or at the cottage, portable generators are the perfect solution for all kinds of scenarios. The great thing about the new Honda EU2000i generators is that they provide all of that in one of the lightest and quietest packages on the market. The EU2000i generator delivers2000 watts at peak output and 13. 3 amps.

So what does that mean? It means you can run everything from hand held power tools, to outdoor lights, back up short power when you’re boating. Or for emergency situations like power outages where you need to keep your furnace fan or sump pump going. Plus thanks to the clean power produced by the EU2000i it’s safe to use with your sensitive electronics. That’s right, laptops, cell phones, you can keep connected. Even in the middle of nowhere. At less than 21 kilograms or 46 pounds this unit is easy to carry.

Quiet yet powerful

The patented technology on the exhaust and muffler makes it a super quiet solution for situations where you need reliable portable power without all the noise. Well there’s a lot you can power with the new EU2000i on its own. There are times when it would be handy to have twice as much power. And that’s no problem. the new EU2000i can now be paralleled with the EU2000i companion model. So I’m going to let my good-looking friend here tell you all about this exciting new feature.

So one of the coolest features about the new EU2000i is that by using this parallel operation cable we can combine this EU2000 with the companion modeL. Thus giving you 4000 watts peak output. Here’s where it gets even better. Having high voltage without adequate amperage limits the amount of power you can get out of your Honda generator regardless of how much power it’s actually producing. The new EU2000i companion features a built-in 30-amp twistlock outlet. This allows you to unlock the power that these two generators are producing.

30 amp outlet

Did I mention that the 30 amp outlet was built in? This is what gives you the maximum rated amperage output available for powering devices that require higher voltage and amperage. Items such as AC units for your RV. It’s easy to see how these generators do not only suit your needs for today. They can easily be expanded if and when those needs grow in the future. Nicely done!

How to Change the Oil on a Honda Generator

Honda 2000i oil change

Today I will be showing you how to change oil on your Honda EU 2000 I.

Tools needed will be a flat head screwdriver, oil drain pan, a quart of Honda’s 10w-30. When getting ready to drain the oil in your Honda generator you always want to make sure before you tip it you turn the fuel valve up on top of the fuel cap, to off. That way prevents any spilling, a leakage or any fire as the machines spills. When doing the oil change on your Honda generator you want to make sure that you run it to an operating temperature in order to ensure that everything drains properly and you get a faster drain when you’re draining the oil.

To access into the oil use a flat head screwdriver remove the access panel on the side right here in the bottom left hand corner. This acts as an oil dipstick oil fill and oil drain. Notice that they give you actual drain. Access it when you pour it out into a drain pan or whatever your dumping it into. So in order to drain the oil, remove the cap. Simply tip the machine on it’s side and let the oil flow out. Once it’s done draining tip the machine back on top. Use a rag to wipe up any excess oil that spilled on the housing when refilling your Honda generator.

When you use a Honda 10w 30, they recommend 13. 58 ounces to fill the machine up to the very top. Level up the threads and once you fill it to the proper level again you want to make sure that at the very top of the threads inside the hole. This also comes with the dipstick you can measure. They don’t recommend you screw it in, just push it in until it’s at the threads then pull it back out. You’ll see what the level is on the stick and if you got the right level screw the cap back into the threads again. Make sure any excess oil is wiped off the generator before you put the access cover back on. Turn the generator on choke all the way to the on position and turn the fuel valve back on.

Give it a pull, let it warm up for 10 to 15 seconds and take the choke off. You’ll notice on the front of the generator this  green light shows that is making voltage. It is also equipped with a low oil alert. If you ever run the machine low on oil it will shut itself down to save the engine. Also there is a light on the front of the generator that shows you why it has shut down and if it is low oil it will give you a red light, to indicate low oil.
