Atima AY2000i vs SD2000i - The Differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Atima SD2000i and the Atima AY2000i.

But before checking out explanations regarding their power, portability, and features, here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 generators:

Atima SD2000iAtima AY2000i
Atima SD2000iAtima AY2000i
  • Less bulky
  • Higher runtime
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Quieter
  • Lighter
  • Fuel gauge

As the SD2000i and the AY2000i are both Atima generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Atima SD2000i compare to the Atima AY2000i.

  • Power: As both the Atima SD2000i and the Atima AY2000i share the same running wattage of 1600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the AY2000i offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the SD2000i: it can operate for up to 10.3 hours, whereas the SD2000i offers a maximum runtime of 8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the AY2000i is more fuel efficient than the Atima SD2000i and its 0.13 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Atima SD2000i and <3% for the Atima AY2000i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 52 dBA, the noise emitted by the AY2000i is slightly lower than the 54 dBA of the SD2000i. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L21" x W11.8" x H18.2", the Atima SD2000i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Atima AY2000i and its L23.4" x W17.8" x H18.1".
  • Weight: With a weight of 47.5 lbs, the AY2000i is slightly less heavy than the SD2000i (which weighs 50.7 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The SD2000i and the AY2000i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the SD2000i's and the AY2000i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Atima AY2000i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
