This whole biz of saying "600 is a good price" is not very accurate all on it's own

The value depends on various aspects - noise - serviceability - ease of use - weight - and long term dependability.

600 is cheaper than 900 but that 300 difference is meaningless if some or many aspects prove problematic

If the life of the generator is for example half that compared to a competitor than it was not a good value

One question I wonder when purchasing g anything mechanical is how I know these things

In agreement, Pharm. On a side note, are the Honda 2000s available for 900? I paid quite a bit more for mine this spring, and it was 'on sale'!!

Ah well, not the first time, probably not the last!

Usual quoted price on net seems to be 999

But I've seen people on forums get them for 900 as I recall

I know this is off subject (Costco) a little but since we have a generator audience I thought I'd ask.

Has anyone used the Yamaha EF2000iS Inverter tri-fuel generator?
msrp is $1,099 and noise level@ 1/4 load 51.5-561 dBA.

I'm attracted to the idea that it could be fueled by my trailer's propane tanks(s) thus avoiding having to transport and handle gasoline.

Tri-fuel capability ... did I miss that in the specs or is it an aftermarket conversion? Most generators may be converted to propane - at a cost. How does aftermarket conversion affect warranty considerations?

Apparently needs a conversion kit.

To answer my own question about where Honda Generators are made….. golly I think their website may have answered this.

"Honda Power Equipment Mfg., Inc., located in Swepsonville, North Carolina. Research, development, and testing activities are conducted at Honda R&D Americas, Inc., also located in North Carolina"

About 35 miles from me…..yikes, another factory tour…..LOL

Thumbs up We have one and we like it!

We usually camp with FHUs but dry camped with friends at Carlsbad State Beach a couple weeks ago and it worked well.

DH recommends to buy a funnel with a long flexible neck because oil access is oddly placed.
