As the Cat INV2000 and the Honda EU2200i 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 Honda EU2200i compare to the Cat INV2000.

  • Power: As both the Honda EU2200i and the Cat INV2000 share the same running wattage of 1800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. However, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the Honda EU2200i, the Cat INV2000 and its starting wattage of 2250 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 Cat INV2000 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 10 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Cat INV2000 is more fuel efficient than the Honda EU2200i and its 0.12 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 Honda EU2200i and <3% for the Cat INV2000) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 48 dBA, the Honda EU2200i allows for a quieter operation than the 52 dBA of the Cat INV2000. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Honda EU2200i and its dimensions of L20" x W11.4" x H16.7" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L19.6" x W12.5" x H18.1" of the Cat INV2000.
  • Weight: With a weight of 46.5 lbs, the EU2200i is slightly less heavy than the INV2000 (which weighs 48.8 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 Honda EU2200i and the Cat INV2000 both offer 2 AC outlets. However, the Cat INV2000 has the advantage of featuring GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Honda EU2200i's and the Cat INV2000's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Honda EU2200i offers a better insight into its power production than the Cat INV2000, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Cat INV2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
