Yamaha

The Yamaha EF 2400ISHC is the generator I use to run my AC. I don't know why more people aren't using this. The weight and cost similar to the Honda 2000. But, it has a built in capacitor that stores high voltage for the intermittent high current draw of an AC motor starting up. No need for 2 Honda 2000's or a 3000 watt generator. The Yamaha weighs 76 lbs, just slightly more than the Honda, and fits in my pickup bed. It is converted to propane now. I used a Honda 3000 before and there is no difference in AC performance. The Yamaha is rated at 2,000 watts continuous and that is enough for the AC an misc. small loads.

To be fair, when you say "weight is similar" it is actually 60% increase in weight over the EU2200i, which is a dry weight of 46.5# and the EF2400ISHC has a dry weight of 75#. If we look at this from "safe to handle" guidelines from OSHA, the EU2x000i fits within the guidelines for a single person to lift (<50#), while the Yamaha absolutely falls into the "use two or more people to lift" category.
