As the EF2000iSv2 and the EF3000iSEB 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 EF3000iSEB.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2800 W, the Yamaha EF3000iSEB 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 EF3000iSEB and its starting wattage of 3500 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 EF3000iSEB offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the EF2000iSv2: it can operate for up to 18.6 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 EF3000iSEB and its 0.18 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 <3% for the Yamaha EF3000iSEB) 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 EF3000iSEB. 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 EF3000iSEB and its L26.8" x W17.5" x H21.9".
  • Weight: Weighing 44.1 lbs, the EF2000iSv2 is much lighter than the 154.3 lbs of the EF3000iSEB.
  • Portability: As the EF3000iSEB benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the EF2000iSv2, because the latter doesn't have one. The EF2000iSv2 has a standard handle and the EF3000iSEB a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Yamaha EF3000iSEB has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 3 AC outlets, the EF3000iSEB offers more AC receptacles than the EF2000iSv2, which has 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 EF3000iSEB's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
