As the EU7000iS and the EM6500SX are both Honda generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. The EU7000iS belongs to the Super Quiet series (EU), which is ideal for recreational and home backup applications. The EM6500SX is from the Deluxe series (EM), which is suitable for home backup and general purpose situations.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Honda EU7000iS compare to the Honda EM6500SX.

  • Power: As both the Honda EU7000iS and the Honda EM6500SX share the same running wattage of 5500W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. However, compared to the 6500 starting watts of the EM6500SX, 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: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. Inverter generators like the Honda EU7000iS are usually much more fuel efficient and quiet.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the EU7000iS produces as low as 52 dBA, but the EM6500SX is rated for a minimum dBA of 64. As previously mentioned, inverter generators such as the EU7000iS offer a much quieter operation.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L33.4" x W27.6" x H28.4", the Honda EU7000iS offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EM6500SX and its L41.1" x W27.8" x H28.3".
  • Weight: With a weight of 234 lbs, the EM6500SX is slightly less heavy than the EU7000iS (which weighs 261 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a folding 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. The Honda EM6500SX offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • 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: The EU7000iS and the EM6500SX both offer 6 AC outlets. They also both feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the EU7000iS's and the EM6500SX's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
