Q: Iq vs ix 2000 what is the difference.
by Garry from Michigan on June 28, 2016

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

While both units feature a low oil shutdown, they are fairly different otherwise. To start, the iX2000 features status LEDs, 12VDC outlet, 4.7 hour run time at 25% and an AC rated output of 2,000 watts. Conversely, the iQ2000 portable inverter generator features status indicators, 7.7 hour run time at 25% load, and a 1,600 watt AC rated output. The iQ2000 also features a PowerDial™ for operation, run time display, and PowerBar™ to monitor your unit's output capacity. Moreover, the iQ features a lower sound output, three modes of operation, and is parallel compatible, whereas the iX2000 is not.

The IQ2000 also has a longer warranty.

If you have any other questions please let us know.

Quieter
Quieter than my dads Honda. I think it might have a little bit less power than the Honda though. Was tripping breaker running the toaster in our camper.

Bought two with the coupling device. One works perfectly. The second shows no gas or time to run even though both were setup exactly the same. Contacted customer service on Monday.

Under heavy load both are quiet. Setup was easy. Dissatisfied with issue on second inverter.
Cons: Unreliable

Iq2000 Troubles
Purchased my IQ2000 on April 25th and received it about 5 days later. Didn't open box until the weekend of May 15th. Used it on camping trip and it worked and functioned great. I was satisfied. Next use was Labor Day weekend. All electronic functions were no longer functional and the unit was leaking gas. Returned home and tried to reach Generac where no one would answer the phone.

After hours of effort, finally found someone that did warranty service on Generacs. After driving across town... more

Awesome Generator
This is the perfect generator for the average person with small electrical power needs,. It's very quiet and reliable and easy to start. The fuel economy is unbelievable. It's light weight and very portable, perfect for tailgating or camping. I would say Genreac has hit a grand slam with this one.

Love The Generac Iq2000
Bought this 2000W Generator as a back up to our 10KW house generator. The 10KW burns to much fuel to keep it running all day. You can run the 2000 for up to 8 hours on one gallon of gas and it keeps the "normal" things going.
Then turn on the dual fuel 10KW for the pumps and water heater, etc. I liked this Generac iq2000 so I bought two more as Christmas presents for my two kids.

Generac Iq2000
I bought the generator mostly for camping, powering my popup camper. I have used it 3 times and put about 25 hrs on it. I can honestly say I could not be happier with the machine. It's quiet as it says, efficient and the led lights and gauges are so valuable. The best part was when it was cold last weekend I ran the generator for the camper and I placed it close enough to the camper that I could see the time remaining on the tank that when I would wake up in the middle of the night I could look... more

Bought this generator to run the TV so I wouldn't have to run the on-board generator I was very surprised how quite it is compared to the, Honda and the price is cheaper. I will buy another so I can run the ac and it uses less fuel than the on-board generator.

Tailgating Power
Right out of the box, filled it with gas and oil for tailgating and it was ready to go. Powered all electrical needs throughout the entire day. Easy one pull start and very quiet.

Only issue I had was one of the rubber feet ripped off during the transport, but called Generac and they have already shipped a replacement.

This was one if my better purchases from GD! Would highly recommend this newest version from Generac
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None
