Q: What is the difference between the Honda EB, EM and EU generators?

by Thomas W Murphy from Wisconsin on June 26, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

The Honda EU series is considered the "Super Quiet" series and range from 1,000 watts to 7,000 watts. These units are totally enclosed and primarily used for recreational purposes.

The Honda EB series are considered "Industrial" and range from 3,000 watts to 10,000 watts. These units have Full GFCI protected outlets to meet OSHA standards on jobsites.

The Honda EM series are considered the "Deluxe" series and range in 4,000 watts to 6,500 watts. These units have electric start and are primarily used for home backup.

Q: Is there anything I need to know about these generators since they have a longer filler neck?
by Karen from Illinois on March 15, 2011

A: This generator has a longer filler neck and filler cap/dipstick for checking the engine oil.

This generator must not be filled with oil until the oil runs out of the filler neck. This will cause the engine to be overfilled with oil.

You must use the gauge in the oil filler cap/dipstick to verify the correct amount of oil in the engine. The engine is full of oil when the oil is up to the top of the cross-hatched area of the filler cap/dipstick. As always, do not screw in the filler cap/dipstick when checking the oil level.

You can find this information in the Owner's Manual as well.

Great Product, But If You Are A Homeowner Be Aware....
I bought this product for home backup power. I had my electrician install a transfer switch, and much to the surprise of both of us, when we plugged it in, the generator's GFI popped immediately, without any load. Turns out that because this is categorized as "industrial" the neutral and ground are bonded inside the generator to meet OSHA standards for a job site.

The problem is that this bond apparently causes a small current loop when connected to the transfer switch plug,... more

Generators & Lawyers Don't Mix...
Readers should pay attention to Greg's informative review posted above. Unfortunately, his review had not been posted when I purchased my new EB5000X and I learned the hard way that an internal generator wiring change needed to be made for the generator to work through a whole-house transfer switch.

Needless to say, my electrician and I spent many hours tracing down why the generator would not power any circuit in the house. We even hooked up an EM5000 which worked perfectly!

John,
When connecting a generator like this to a home, it is suggested that a GFI manual transfer switch should be used. When using a GFI rated switch, the generator can be used right out of the box without any changes.
