As the EF3000iS 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 EF3000iS compare to the Yamaha EF3000iSEB.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF3000iS and the Yamaha EF3000iSEB share the same running wattage of 2800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. However, compared to the 3000 starting watts of the EF3000iS, 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: At a 25% load, these 2 portable generators offer the same runtime on a full tank. Each of them will be able to deliver power for up to 18.6 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.18 gallon of gasoline per hour. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Yamaha EF3000iS and <3% for the Yamaha EF3000iSEB) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 53 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: The EF3000iS and its 136 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 154.3 lbs of the EF3000iSEB.
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a double handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

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: The EF3000iS and the EF3000iSEB both offer 3 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 EF3000iS'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.
