Powerhorse LC2000i vs Predator 2000 - The Differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Predator 2000 and the Powerhorse LC2000i.

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:

Predator 2000Powerhorse LC2000i
Predator 2000Powerhorse LC2000i
  • Higher runtime
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • DC outlet(s)
  • Fuel gauge
  • Quieter
  • Less bulky
  • Lighter
  • More outlet types
  • More AC outlets

As the Powerhorse LC2000i and the Predator 2000 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Predator 2000 compare to the Powerhorse LC2000i.

  • Power: As both the Predator 2000 and the Powerhorse LC2000i 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 Predator 2000 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Powerhorse LC2000i: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the Powerhorse LC2000i offers a maximum runtime of 8.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour), the Predator 2000 is more fuel efficient than the Powerhorse LC2000i 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 (<5% for the Predator 2000 and <1.5% for the Powerhorse LC2000i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the Powerhorse LC2000i produces as low as 52 dBA, but the Predator 2000 is rated for a minimum dBA of 65.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.6" x W11.2" x H17.1", the Powerhorse LC2000i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Predator 2000 and its L22.6" x W12.6" x H18.5".
  • Weight: With a weight of 46.3 lbs, the LC2000i is slightly less heavy than the 2000 (which weighs 47 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: With a total of 3 AC outlets, the Powerhorse LC2000i offers more AC receptacles than the Predator 2000, which has 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The former also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Predator 2000's and the Powerhorse LC2000i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
