Brad, can you give the exact name or web address for the hydraulic lift cart or tell us where you got it and for how much? We even have trouble hauling our 2000i from the truck bed round to the trailer and would love this assist. Thanks. ~G

I found this hydraulic table (totally by chance) at Northern Tool and Equipment. I think Northern is a chain, bit I went to the local store on Route 41 in Marietta, GA - across the street from WhiteWater for anyone local.

Northern's web site is www.northerntool.com. The unit is Part #143846, and is called a 660 pound Hydraulic Table Cart. It retails for about $150.

The BEST thing is it comes assembled, with the exception of one handle and a footpedal. It took me 14 seconds to assemble those parts and put the table to use. With the use of the footpedal, raising the generator is almost effortless.

In re-reading your message, you should be aware that this table itself is heavy (no, I don't know the weight). I would not bring it with me on a trip; instead, I will use it to lift my generator onto my (front mounted) rack. Instead of bringing your 2000i from the truck bed to the A/S, why don't you just run an extension cord - so you minimize any heavy lifting of the generator.

Looking to get one. Boy the EU3000 is quiet. The 144lb weight is a bit more than me and the little wife could heave up on the tailgate of the F250. But it is less likely to walk off than the EU2000 and it's supposedly quieter. Will it run the 13.5k btu A/C?? My wife loves it cold. I have an inverter charging the 2 batteries. Would I have to disconnect that?

Hi OXBLOOD,

I have a Honda EU-3000. It WILL start and run a 13.5 K Air conditioner. I run mine alot with the Honda. I have a 55 Amp Parallax converter/charger that stays on. You shouldn't have to isolate your inverter?/converter/charger to run your air.

I would recommend a wheel kit for the EU-3000 to move it around. Even though I can lift the generator into the bed of my pickup, I generally use a folding ATV ramp to roll it up into the truck. No need for a hernia. I lock it down with a Krytonite cable lock and a truck cap cover. Strap it down with ratchet hold down straps to keep it from shifting.

I have a coleman 7100 btu ac (model 6727-739). We usually only run a tv & some 12 volt lights, & maybe water pump, with this. NO microwave or other high amp draws. I think 1 eu2000 should run this? 1 15 amp plug at home runs everything, (no Problem).
Would like other opinions. Thanks in Advence,

I wouldn't just think because it could be expensive. Look up the info with your Coleman to see what the amp draw is and what the compressor draw is on startup. Your extension cord should also be large enough to handle the current. The Honda 2000 must meet that draw plus any you have in your trailer at the time. If it doesn't then your A/C will meet a slow death. After you find out what those figures are then let us know. Most of us use 11k, 13.5k or 15k BTU A/C and we would be curious.

I know this is an oldie but goodie thread but...

I decided on the two 2000 Honda generators. Had one running the other night, the fridge was on, we had a dehumidifier, every light, the radio and it cooked along happy. I am extremely pleased. A bit pricey but worth it. This thread was a big help.

Honda 2000 are a great generator. Have one will get the other in the next year. i use mine at hunt camp and with the generator within 30' we can still have a conversation at normal level without trying to shout over the roar of a cheaper generator.
last summer we were at a campground and some SOB turned on a very loud generator and left the campground while the machine roared away. our 2000 is so light and portable that we can easily strap it down in the TV and rock and roll

We've got two 2000i's with a six gallon feeder tank. this is a good system, and I can actually easily handle all of the stuff.

Parallel 'kit' or OEM, also feeder question...

Brian -

After YEARS of sitting on the fence I decided to jump in with BOTH feet and buy 2, yes that's right 2!!!, EU2000i's and luckily they neglected to include the parallel kit that Honda makes....

So, the quiestions are as follows:

1 - Do you have the Honda PK? Down on power as per the reading....
2 - If you have the Gen-Tech kit? Is it really better? (guessing yes, as it allows the peak power that the Honda kit doesn't seem to allow - but still over $200)
3 - do you perhaps have the 'home brewed' version that is at most 1/2 the Honda/ Gen-Tech price and still allows the full power to flow.... Could you PLEASE send photos of the install (with parts list) for those of us that follow slavishly in your pioneering footsteps...!?!?!?

Sorry that I am SO LATE to the Honda Genny party - looking to make up for SERIOUSLY lost time..... and FAST!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

Axel

there are several threads with photos of all three kit types (honda, gen-tech and home brewed..)

but IF both genset are allowed to reach 'peak' power at the 4000 watt level...

that would be MORE than 30 amps (33 or 34) which creates another potential set of issues.

i'd suggest just getting the parallel kit designed specifically for these gensets...

and keep the routine power needs UNDER 30 amps...

cheers

Drop back and .....

Kev -

I would, Drop back and .....

(wait for it!!!!)

(wait for it!!)

(wait for it!)

Sue the guys that created the software, that allowed the web guys to post, the info from the dude, that said the eu2000i would run the AC - CLEARLY "THEY" are to blame for this whole debacle!!!!!!

I would ask for "AT LEAST" 170K so that you can buy that 'Full on Luxury AS' that is on EBay right now with an BIN price of 170K (How odd, the lawsuit price and the EBay prace are EXACT matches - who'd of thunk it?!)

Anyway, just sayin'
