Yamaha 2400i Storage Container

I finally found and purchased a robust weather-proof storage container for my Yamaha 2400i. Contico Pro Tuff Bin. Got it with free shipping from Zorro Tools. Perfect height and depth, and just a bit wider than the generator - enough space for a gasoline container. &utm_campaign=Google_Shopping_Feed&kw={keyword}&gc lid=CNewpc7m1bICFWGnPAodcnMA3A

Now, how you transport the loaded container it is another topic.

Here is a link to them on Amazon. They look nice, thanks for the post.

As to carrying it, my 2400 stays in the bed of my truck under the cap.

It's one of the last things I pack into my SUV. And it stays there when it runs, with the exhaust port facing in the proper direction, of course. ;-)

At one time I thought a container would be good, but the darn thing just takes up too much extra space.

I've done the same in loading mine, Murray, and will probably continue to do so. It's easier, and when I run the carb dry there isn't a whiff of gasoline inside the SUV. I haven't been bold enough to run it inside the SUV, but as you obviously haven't burned up your MB, I may give that a try. The container is primarily for the afterdeck of our sailboat, where the Yamaha will spend the sailing season.
