Predator 1400 vs 2000 - The Differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Predator 2000 and the Predator 1400.

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:

As the 2000 and the 1400 are both Predator 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 Predator 2000 compare to the Predator 1400.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1600 W, the Predator 2000 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1100 running watts of the Predator 1400. Moreover, compared to the 1400 starting watts of the 1400, the 2000 and its starting wattage of 2000 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the 2000 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the 1400: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the 1400 offers a maximum runtime of 7.3 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.09 GPH (gallon per hour), the 1400 is more fuel efficient than the Predator 2000 and its 0.1 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 <3% for the Predator 1400) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 58 dBA, the noise emitted by the 2000 is slightly lower than the 60.4 dBA of the 1400. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L18.5" x W10.7" x H15.5", the Predator 1400 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Predator 2000 and its L22.6" x W12.6" x H18.5".
  • Weight: Weighing 33 lbs, the 1400 is much lighter than the 49 lbs of the 2000.
  • 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 2000 and the 1400 both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the 2000 does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the 2000's and the 1400's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: Both units benefit from Predator's CO Secure carbon monoxide monitoring technology.

  1. With the numbers submitted, I believe the 2000 is more fuel efficient while also delivering more power. The uses 0.087 gpm, the 2000 uses 0.083 gpm.

    I personally, using an Amazon $10 hour/rpm meter on my 2000, I got 12.5 hours cooling both my fridge and freezer plus fan, lights and computer. 25% of 2000 is 500 watts compared with 350 watts. That’s almost 505 more power on the same fuel.That is a steady 500-600 watt draw. Living off-grid, I run it 7 to 8 hours per day and change oil at 70 hours instead of the recommended 100 hours. With 5/20 oil, it started 2nd pull being outside at -28 f. Honda’s start having problems below 32 f.

    I have but one problem with the 2000, the pull start vibrates against the pull start cover and chafes the rope just inches from the handle. Replacing the pull start or just the rope would be a big job as so much must come apart first. A piece of shrink tubing in that chafing area periodically delays that problem. With over 4000 Predator 2000 runtime hours and almost always a one pull start, I am very pleased.
