I believe those big Honda buildings you see here and there are for distribution, not for manufacturing. I bought a Honda EU2000is last spring, built in the Phillipines!

If you have a 13.5 or 15.0k btu air conditioner, probably not. I use two paralleled EU2000i's and they have no problem.

• There are plenty of Honda EU2000i generators (all versions, including standard, Companion, and Camo) in multiple Honda warehouses in the USA. While the EU2000i is Honda's most popular generator model, wholesale inventory is almost always available. Even during weather events or disasters, I've never known Honda to totally sell-out of this model.

• Honda does not ship generators to any retail customers. Honda wholesales generators and ships them to dealers, period. A retail customer having any shipping or delivery delay should contact the selling dealer directly.

• Up until about a year ago, all Honda EU2000i generators were made in Japan. Now, they are made at the Honda plant in Thailand. If you have a serial number that starts with "EAAJ" that is a Japan-build unit. Serial numbers starting with "EAET" or "EACT" are units made in Thailand.

• While Honda is the second largest employer in the state of Ohio (the state government is #1), no Honda generators are manufactured there. Honda has a large plant in Swepsonville, NC, that makes 160~190cc Honda engines, lawn mowers, mini-tillers, string trimmers, and snow blowers. The plant will be re-tooling this year to start making large 2-stage snow blowers and a yet-unannounced generator model.

Thanks for this Robert.

At the time I originally tried to order, CW on-line was showing 'out of stock' (and our local store also didn't have them) but Wise gave no indication they would have trouble filling the order. If Honda has them, then I can only assume the issue is Wise are not ordering enough, but rather sitting on my money.

I will know better than buy from them again, but now have to try and cancel my order and get my money back so I can go elsewhere - no doubt they will be as slow at doing that as they have been about ordering the unit.....

Honda Generator Shortage?

About a month ago I saw over a dozen of them stacked at the Albuquerque Camping World. Hard to imagine how many more they had in the back. Shortage? Maybe a spot shortage but I rather doubt a nation-wide shortage. Maybe they all got shipped to the northeast to handle the Blizzard Juno fizzle.

Martin simply file a claim with your credit card company for non receipt of the product. They should remove it from you next billing cycle effectively giving the money back to you. That will quickly force a vendor to do the same. If they should ship to you simply refuse the shipment, don't sign for it. That's why I love Amex.

Any web-based retailer who wants to charge your card in advance of shipping you a standard item that is out-of-stock is one I would avoid. There's no reason to charge the card until the item is back in stock and ready for shipment.

If that happened to me and they were reluctant to cancel the order and immediately push the credit back to my card, I would complain to my bank about the fraudulent charge and ask them to intervene so I could get the money back and then order my generator from a more customer-focused supplier.

Unfortunately my bank 'requires' that I notify the seller that I want to cancel the order (which I did), then wait 15 days before they will start the process of recovering the charge, to 'allow the seller the opportunity to voluntarily issue a refund', BS!

I certainly would not recommend anyone purchase from WiseSales in future.

Well here we are now approaching 8 weeks after I placed the order with WiseSales for the EU2000i and they billed my credit card.

More so, it is 3 weeks after I finally lost patients and cancelled the order, and they they promised a full refund.

It is also a week after I gave up waiting for the refund from them (Dorothy on their custom service has been very nice about it, happily reporting they have such a back-log of making refunds because so many are cancelling - I did point out that wasn't my problem!) and reached the 15 day limit (after cancellation) which enabled me to raise a dispute of the charges.....but still no money back so I can go buy a unit from someone that has them in stock!!!!

Time for American Express

Martin,
Sorry to hear of your troubles with Wise. I almost ordered from them. Glad I didn't. I just went to my local Yamaha dealer and he gave me a price of $879 for an EF2000is. That's a damn good price. $966 out-the-door.

Two points to be made here.

Go with the Yamaha. Better unit IMHO. Cheaper too. No need to pay for the Honda name, and who wants a red generator anyway?

Drop that credit card and get yourself an American Express card. You cannot touch their customer service. One call to them would have already had credit placed back onto your card by the very next bidniz day, and a dispute opened vs Wise Sales. The retailer is forced to respond. I have been with them since 1990. They are the best in the credit card industry. Did I mention you get points that you can redeem on Amazon.com?

Git u one!

Gavin
