Man I read where someone on these forums was cussing about their Honda and loved their Yamaha. I have the Honda 2000EU and love it. Couldn't imagine having anything else. Easy first pull starts, good on gas and quiet. I'm sure you can't go wrong with either one. I just can't speak for the Yammy. I don't have one. Although my motor is a Yamaha

Some folks including myself bought them from www.wisesales.com

Call Ed and tell him you are on a Bowfishing and Flounder gigging site and got his name there. Ask him what price he can sell it to you for. They did a big purchase for like $825 or $850 a couple years ago.

I bought mine for right around $870, delivered in 3 days.

Everybody local was trying to sell it for just below the MSRP of $1149.95

Yeah apparently the Honda is really quiet, but I've heard the Yamaha, and it is also just as quiet.
Look at this comparison of both generators, it's obvious you should get the Yamaha.

My cousin used to have a Honda EU2000 generator, then he sold it and bought the Yamaha one. From what he tells me the Yamaha is way better.

Its cheaper too. On amazon the Yamaha is a clean 200 dollars cheaper than the Honda.

If I were you I would just go with the Yamaha.

It's all relative. Yamaha offers a intermediate size @ 2400 watts. Honda has nothing there. Take your pick. Both quiet and both equally as good. But if you need more power or plan to do some serious upgrades then it is something to think about.

Yes I do....I wouldn't have one less than 2000watt.

400MH




These 175MH were added fairly recently.
