Q: What is the difference between Honda model 3000is and model 3000isa?
by Rick Anda from Arizona on February 19, 2011

A: The Honda website and our literature do not list a EU3000isa model. We only offer the EU3000iS in that size. They do have some other model sizes with an "A" at the end of their model number which looks like it represents their "iMonitor" which provides info for hours, wattage and engine speed as well as diagnostics for convenient dealer servicing.

Hurricane Sandy
After 7 days with out power, I went on line and ordered this generator from PED- the next 10 days went much better, the generator was super quiet, and used very little gas. This was big, because fining gas in New Jersey in the wake of the storm was really hard. Now I'm ready for the next outage.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Gas Mileage
Cons: Expensive

Good Transfer Switch
This transfer switch is a good quality product, and installed quite easily. Even swapping out two of the breakers was a breeze. No issues to report, and a thorough load test last week revealed no problems.

Camping With Our New Honda Generator
Waited to write - just got back from horse camping in the Arkansas Ouichita National Forest. The generator worked like a champ was easy to start and quiet - A big plus. Friends plugged into ours and we noticed a little drain when they were really putting a load on the generator - But it never skipped a beat - and it really didn't seem like it used that much gas - Considering the convenience. Thanks will be ordering some accessories in the near future

Best On The Market & Very Quiet!
First of all I want to point out out how great this website and company is. It is probably the best source of information for these types of products. The best place to buy them too! My experience ordering with them is 5 stars. Very fast shipping too. OK now for my review...

I bought this after a long term power outage. I had to frantically hunt down this generator at a local store otherwise I would have ordered it from this website. It was the LAST one in a 200 mile radius due to a... more

Honda Eu3000 Telescoping Handles
The EU 3000 generator is easy to lug around if two people are available. The telescoping handles make very easy for one person to to move the unit without much effort. The handles are well designed and precision manufactured. All the parts fit perfectly without any "adjustments" by the installer. The directions were clear. I thought the $200 price was a bit high, but the results were good.

Powerhouse
After some research I decided to purchase the Honda 3000is with the telescoping handle. The generator with the handle attached is easy to maneuver also easy to start and super quiet.

I would recommend this generator to anyone looking for light weight powerhouse.

Egd And Honda 3000is (revised)
EGD has one of the best consumer education site I've seen. They get 5 stars for their excellence right there! The Honda gen got shipped on time, tracking # and delivery after a confirmation call and ET of delivery from their shipper... perfect. Box was a little dented and frazzled, I covered my butt with "Box Damaged" notation on signature pad, but the product was perfect inside. Of course the hurricane had passed and I didn't need it anyway.....isn't that always the way!
