Hence these, they are in my price range, have a decibel of 53 at 23ft. Weighs in a just under 50lbs. Run time of 9 and a half hours at 25%load. Two can be combined to reach the magic 4,000 watts needed to run most everything in the AS. The other nice factor of this one is they are stackable.

2000W Inverter Generator (CARB) - Champion Power Equipment

I would like to know if anyone has one or two, used them and what the good-bad-ugly of them are?

Thank you all in advance for any and all information
Two facts to consider:

1) Honda and Yamaha have a track record of keeping service parts available throughout the reasonable life of their products. Ask yourself whether you will be able to get a carb kit or ignition parts for a Champion generator 5 10 or 15 years from now.

2) Should your needs or situation change you may wish to sell your generator. Honda/Yamaha generators sell for top dollar on the used market as long as it can be established that they don't have excessive run time.

The main reason people prefer to use EU2000s in pairs is that, individually, they are light enough to lift. The EU3000 at 134 pounds, realistically, requires 3 people or wheels and a ramp. In the same light, the EU2000s can be started manually by most reasonably able-bodied people while the EU3000 requires either electric start or a certain amount of athleticism.
