As the Honda EG2800i and the Yamaha EF2800i 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 Yamaha EF2800i compare to the Honda EG2800i.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF2800i and the Honda EG2800i share the same running wattage of 2500W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2800 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 Yamaha EF2800i offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EG2800i: it can operate for up to 14.7 hours, whereas the Honda EG2800i offers a maximum runtime of 12.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.17 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EG2800i is more fuel efficient than the Yamaha EF2800i 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 EF2800i and <3% for the Honda EG2800i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 62 dBA, the noise emitted by the Honda EG2800i is slightly lower than the 65 dBA of the Yamaha EF2800i. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Yamaha EF2800i and its dimensions of L19.2" x W15.6" x H16.7" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L16.9" x W17.6" x H18.9" of the Honda EG2800i.
  • Weight: With a weight of 66.6 lbs, the EG2800i is slightly less heavy than the EF2800i (which weighs 68 lbs).

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Yamaha EF2800i and the Honda EG2800i both offer 3 AC outlets. However, the Yamaha EF2800i has the advantage of featuring GFCI outlets. The former also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Yamaha EF2800i's and the Honda EG2800i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
