As the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower and the Honda EU7000iS 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 EU7000iS compare to the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 5500 W, the Honda EU7000iS will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 5000 running watts of the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower. Moreover, compared to the 6500 starting watts of the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower, the Honda 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 Honda EU7000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower: it can operate for up to 18 hours, whereas the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower offers a maximum runtime of 14 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.28 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EU7000iS is more fuel efficient than the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower and its 0.36 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 EU7000iS and <3% for the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the Honda EU7000iS produces as low as 52 dBA, but the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower is rated for a minimum dBA of 66.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L27.7" x W23.2" x H22.3", the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower 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 128 lbs, the Q6500 QuietPower is much lighter than the 261 lbs of the EU7000iS.
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. The Honda EU7000iS has a folding handle and the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower 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 EU7000iS also benefits from a convenient 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: The Honda EU7000iS offers a higher amount of AC receptacles than the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower: the former benefits from 6 AC outlets, whereas the latter has 5 AC outlets. Yet, they both feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Honda EU7000iS's and the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower'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.
