As the Predator 3500 and the Honda EU3000iS 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 EU3000iS compare to the Predator 3500.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3000 W, the Predator 3500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 2800 running watts of the Honda EU3000iS. Moreover, compared to the 3000 starting watts of the Honda EU3000iS, the Predator 3500 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: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Honda EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Predator 3500: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the Predator 3500 offers a maximum runtime of 11 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 Predator 3500 and its 0.24 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 EU3000iS and <5% for the Predator 3500) 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 57 dBA of the Predator 3500. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L22.8" x W17.3" x H20", the Predator 3500 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EU3000iS and its L25.9" x W17.6" x H22".
  • Weight: Weighing 99.2 lbs, the 3500 is much lighter than the 131 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: As the Predator 3500 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: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter.
  • Outlets: The Honda EU3000iS and the Predator 3500 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 Honda EU3000iS's and the Predator 3500's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Predator 3500 allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Honda EU3000iS. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Honda EU3000iS provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
