As the EF2000iSv2 and the EF2400iSHC are both Yamaha 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 Yamaha EF2000iSv2 compare to the Yamaha EF2400iSHC.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2000 W, the Yamaha EF2400iSHC will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the Yamaha EF2000iSv2. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the EF2000iSv2, the EF2400iSHC and its starting wattage of 2400 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 EF2400iSHC offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the EF2000iSv2: it can operate for up to 11 hours, whereas the EF2000iSv2 offers a maximum runtime of 10.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 is more fuel efficient than the EF2400iSHC and its 0.15 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 (<2.5% for the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 and <2.5% for the Yamaha EF2400iSHC) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 51.5 dBA, the noise emitted by the EF2000iSv2 is slightly lower than the 53 dBA of the EF2400iSHC. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.3" x W11" x H17.9", the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Yamaha EF2400iSHC and its L20.8" x W16.5" x H18.2".
  • Weight: Weighing 44.1 lbs, the EF2000iSv2 is much lighter than the 75 lbs of the EF2400iSHC.
  • Portability: The EF2000iSv2 has a standard handle and the EF2400iSHC a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The EF2000iSv2 and the EF2400iSHC both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the EF2000iSv2's and the EF2400iSHC's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
