As the Honda EU3000iS and the Yamaha EF3000iS 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 EF3000iS compare to the Honda EU3000iS.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF3000iS and the Honda EU3000iS share the same running wattage of 2800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (3000 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 Honda EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Yamaha EF3000iS: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the Yamaha EF3000iS offers a maximum runtime of 18.6 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.17 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EU3000iS is more fuel efficient than the Yamaha EF3000iS 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 (<3% for the Yamaha EF3000iS and <3% for the Honda EU3000iS) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 50 dBA, the Honda EU3000iS allows for a quieter operation than the 53 dBA of the Yamaha EF3000iS. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 131 lbs, the EU3000iS is slightly less heavy than the EF3000iS (which weighs 136 lbs).
  • Portability: As the Yamaha EF3000iS benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the Honda EU3000iS, because the latter doesn't have one. 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 Honda EU3000iS has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The Yamaha EF3000iS and the Honda EU3000iS 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 Yamaha EF3000iS's and the Honda EU3000iS's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
