As the EU3000iS and the EU7000iS are both Honda generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. They are both part of Honda's Super Quiet series (EU), which is ideal for recreational and home backup applications.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Honda EU3000iS compare to the Honda EU7000iS.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 5500 W, the Honda EU7000iS 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 EU3000iS, the EU7000iS and its starting wattage of 7000 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 EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the EU7000iS: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the EU7000iS offers a maximum runtime of 18 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 EU7000iS and its 0.28 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 <3% for the Honda EU7000iS) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 50 dBA, the noise emitted by the EU3000iS is slightly lower than the 52 dBA of the EU7000iS. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L25.9" x W17.6" x H22", the Honda EU3000iS offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EU7000iS and its L33.4" x W27.6" x H28.4".
  • Weight: Weighing 131 lbs, the EU3000iS is much lighter than the 261 lbs of the EU7000iS.
  • Portability: As the EU7000iS benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the EU3000iS, because the latter doesn't have one. The EU3000iS has a double handle and the EU7000iS a folding handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter.
  • EFI: The Honda EU7000iS benefits from an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, which enhances its engine's reliability, lowers its fuel consumption, improves its startup, reduces its servicing, boosts its stale fuel resistance, and offers better altitude adaptability.
  • Outlets: With a total of 6 AC outlets, the EU7000iS offers more AC receptacles than the EU3000iS, which has 3 AC outlets. Moroever, the EU7000iS has the advantage of featuring GFCI outlets. The former also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the EU3000iS's and the EU7000iS's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Honda EU7000iS allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Honda EU3000iS. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
