From The Manufacturer
Flexible And Reliable Power
With its inverter technology and a 4.7 hour run time at 50% load, Honeywell’s 2,000 watt portable inverter generator is a light-weight option that allows you to provide power to a variety of loads in any outdoor setting. The EcoMode™ feature on this model also allows the generator to automatically adjust engine speed to accommodate the amount of load(s) placed on the generator. This helps to save fuel and reduce the product’s sound output when operating. If you’re looking for a portable... more

Good, Not Great- Did Its Job.
I ordered this unit 2 days after Sandy hit. PED and Fedex got this generator to our doorstep in just 2 days with Free Shipping while others were fighting over what few units were coming into the local stores. That deserves a Big Thank You!

Pros: This unit powered our oil fired boiler for hot showers and heat, microwave, toaster, lights and device chargers. Of course the microwave and toaster could not be run at the same time. I can't comment about hooking up to a refrigerator b/c I left... more

Wanted A Honda But Got A Honeywell
I bought the generator to run a pump. The pump is sensitive to current fluctuations and, in the past, I have had to rent a Honda 2000i generator. I received the generator quickly, put the fuel and oil in, and started it. It started quickly but ran rough. The generator engine idle for the first two minutes went up and down and had an exhaust pop. The generator was never run with the ECON switch on. Two other people that were standing by stated "that doesn't sound right".

Leaks
Gas cap leaks, even when shut off ans vent is closed, gas seeps out. Doesn't have enough power to run two 1/3 hp sump pumps.

The Lemon
This is the 6th or 7th of these that I bought. Every other unit works without thinking about it. Start it, and it does start every time, and they run. They run, run, run. This particular unit worked for 6 hours. Shut off. Won't restart.

Of course I can't find a service guy for it. Honeywell lists service guys who, when you call them, say they don't service those units. What a bummer.

EGD: This model carries a 2 year warranty from the manufacturer. We suggest contacting Honeywell... more

Just When I Needed It, Failure.
I checked it out every couple of months making sure the gas if fresh, oil level is good and run it for 15 to 20 minutes with a fan and some lights connected. Last night our power was off for 8 hours, all we needed was a fan and some lights. The generator didn't work. The overload light was on and nothing was connected. POS!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Unreliable, Unreliable

Nice For Camping
Overloaded easily with more than one phone charger. Although it handled the 1400W electric griddle and lighting just fine on the camper. Once overloaded you gotta power down to reset. As mentioned above louder than I expected but conversations can be had within 6 feet without shouting, unlike other generators. Good source of power when you need it. The other reviews almost swayed me, glad I bought this one.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Louder Than I Expected It's No Honda

Horrid
This is the second Honeywell small generator I have owned, the first was recalled when it quit running. I had this one sent for free, went to start it (like I do three times a year) and the overload light would not turn off.

I called Honeywell and they told me this unit was "extremely sensitive" and I needed to take it to a dealer to have it reset. I have never had anything plugged into this thing. Frankly i am shocked Honeywell would sell a piece of Garbage like this.

Not That Great
Bought this as an upgrade for camping because it was suppose to be "super quite". Instead very loud- no wonder they don't show the sound rating. Also almost impossible to start. Beware you won't be having any tailgate parties with this nearby.

Honeywell
This generator runs well and it started right up. But buyers be ware this generator will not run a air conditioning unit. I read some reviews that said it would. fan yes but the compressor overloads it so dont buy it with the intention of running your air. Its not near as quiet as the Honda more like my Coleman 1850 but then again it didn't cost 1200.00 either to bad they haven't come out with a set up like Honda so you can run two of them together. That's the way I see it.

Peace Of Mind
I bought the Honeywell after a week long power outage. It was a hard choice because there is a huge range of prices and capabilities and no dealers in my area to explain the pros and cons.

In the 3 years I have had it, I haven't had another power failure to test how well it works under the conditions for which I purchased it. If I were superstitious, I'd say having a backup emergency generator prevents outages!

I keep 2 five gallon gas cans stored in my shed with conditioner in the gas... more

Very Pleased
GENERATOR WAS ON A TWO WEEK BACK ORDER WHEN WE ORDERED - it was delivered a week early - followed instructions on adding oil, gas, prime, and choke - it started on the second pull.

After a 5 minute warm up I hooked it to our RV. Ran it for half an hour and everything worked fine.
So far we are very pleased and looking forward to using it camping and in our travels.

Very Happy!
Purchased this generator as and upgrade for my old one. Was looking for something alittle smaller, quiter, and more fuel efficient. When I order the generator it was on a 10 day backorder list. The company said as soon as the generators came in it would be 2-3 days, so 10-13 days waiting time. Needless to say I got the unit after just 9 days. So I was very impressed with the delivery service. Another thing which had me sold when I came upon this website was the free shipping and tax free. But... more
