As the Predator 2000 and the Generac iQ2000 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 Generac iQ2000 compare to the Predator 2000.

  • Power: As both the Generac iQ2000 and the Predator 2000 share the same running wattage of 1600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 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 Predator 2000 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Generac iQ2000: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the Generac iQ2000 offers a maximum runtime of 7.7 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour), the Predator 2000 is more fuel efficient than the Generac iQ2000 and its 0.14 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 Generac iQ2000 and <5% for the Predator 2000) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L20" x W12.6" x H16.9", the Generac iQ2000 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Predator 2000 and its L22.6" x W12.6" x H18.5".
  • Weight: With a weight of 46.5 lbs, the iQ2000 is slightly less heavy than the 2000 (which weighs 47 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Generac iQ2000 and the Predator 2000 both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Generac iQ2000's and the Predator 2000's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Generac iQ2000 offers a better insight into its power production than the Predator 2000, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, these 2 products are equipped with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance. For the iQ2000, this fuel gauge is digital and part of the data center.
