As the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart 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 Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2800 W, the Honda EU3000iS will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 2600 running watts of the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart. However, 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 Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart offers a maximum runtime of 10 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.15 GPH (gallon per hour), the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart is more fuel efficient than the Honda EU3000iS and its 0.17 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 Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart) 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 58 dBA of the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L26" x W14" x H21", the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EU3000iS and its L25.9" x W17.6" x H22".
  • Weight: Weighing 84 lbs, the P3000 PowerSmart is much lighter than the 131 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: As the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart 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. The Honda EU3000iS has a double handle and the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart a telecospic handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: These two devices can both be reliably started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism. However, the Honda EU3000iS also benefits from a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 5 AC outlets, the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart offers more AC receptacles than the Honda EU3000iS, which has 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Honda EU3000iS's and the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart 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.
