If you have two regular model Honda 2000s you need a parallel box kit to connect them .... but if you have two 2000 Hondas and one of them is the Companion model they are a lot easier to parallel with a simple set of cables (no box kit required).
And cheaper. No parallel box which if I remember is about $150

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Honda typically runs a national promotion for Black Friday with a focus on generators. Inventory may be a little spotty in the Northeast (Sandy), but there are a lot of dealers who offer 48-state shipping.

If you buy a big unit like the EU6500is "still in the box" it's not too much effort to assemble. Everything bolts on with metric wrenches / sockets, and the battery is a sealed, charged-from-the-factory design.

Here's a link to find a dealer in your area. Ask about special prices or promotions for Black Friday and shop around. You may be able to save enough off the selling price to pay for shipping.
