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.

Great Generator Very Satisfied For Emergency Communications
Very satisfied with Direct sent them an email and they responded with an answer to my question. Great service and delivery. With that said I live in Florida and I am a ham radio operator.

Buy Only Honda
Brand new, never had chance to use. All indicator lights are non working. Called Generac, they say to take to authorized warranty dealer to fix. So happens this dealer has always had problems with Generac and refuses to carry their product. It's been with this dealer for 3 weeks now and no solution(s) yet.

Far Better Than It's Competitors!!!!
Best purchase I made in five years. I love this generator. I have a 9000 Generac and 3500 Honda. I am glad I did not go with the Honda version. Features, quality and price made the purchase decision easy. No doubts I would buy another one.
Pros: Quiet, Features, High Quality, Light Weight
Cons: None

Excellent Product!
I received my Generator this morning. I followed the instructions and was very pleased with the quality so far. Easy to use and the instructions were clear. I tested the unit with low draw on economy and then on turbo with about 20 percent. The unit is very quiet and is simple to use. I ran the unit for 3 hours without a problem. We have used Honda's up at our camp but I am impressed with the gauges and time left indicators. Very quiet! Looks like a home run for Generac!!

This Is A Must Have Item
I work in television and film and we are constantly looking for generators that are super quiet. If I had to rate this generator from 1 to 10, I would give it a 9 1/2.

Very Satisfied
I was very satisfied with everything about this generator. I have only run it a bit, real tests will come in the summer. I will say it is even quieter than I thought..Everyone I have dealt with at Electric Generators Direct have been been very courteous and helpful.

Not Impressed!!! Old Model Is Better & Cheaper
Used this new model twice and tried to run a 1400w waffle maker and it overloaded twice and would not start again until next day!!!
don't buy this item.

Brian,
In some instances, it could be the actual appliance you're trying to use that could be giving you the issue. Generac stands behind this product with a 3-Year Limited warranty. I'd suggest bringing it in to a local servicing dealer who can diagnosis the problem for you. To find a local service center Generac can be reached directly @ 888-436-3722 or Generac Dealer Locator

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

Idle Speeds A Little Confusing
I have only used my generator on one camping trip. It did a good job powering my camp. While the gas, time remaining, and load usage features are handy, the three idle settings are confusing. Are they even necessary? Shouldn't the generator determine the power draw and adjust itself accordingly? Seems kind of senseless if it doesn't. None of the owner material addresses this. I am satisfied with the overall function. Two friends, one with a Honda and the other with a Yamaha, were booth... more

Runs Good Provides Enough Power But Not All Features Work
Before i ordered this product i did a little research and saw that there had been some problems. I figured no big deal i'm sure they got all the bugs out. wrong first time i started it the fuel gauge did not work so the remaining run time does not work either. after looking this problem up i saw that some was told that the wires could be loose on the back of the gauge and were told to remove that panel and sure enough that solved his problem.

So I figured, cool I'll take the panel off... more
