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.

Best Generator Purchased So Far Compared To My 2 Older Generator
Quiet, light, gauges and easy to use, (main reason for buying this generator) ran 2 commercial fans to keep mosquitos within campsite from biting which is better than burning candles, watch movies running projector, excellent on fuel consumption, no complaints from neighboring campsites about noise (ran generator after 10pm to 12am),. Will be purchasing 2nd generator for parallel connections for double the power in case of emergencies. Can't compare to my older portable Honda 1850 Sports... more

Gas Gauge Don't Work
I'm on my 3rd unit now and gas gauge hasn't worked on any of them. Part to fix it was on back order for 4 months . When it finally came in Generac was unable to get a hold of their service dealer that the part was delivered to. They sent me a new generator and has the same problem as the other ones. Starts easy runs good just gas gauge don't work. One of the reasons I bought it was I thought that was a cool feature. Guess I will just have to deal with it not working.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use

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

I Have Yet To Use My Generator For Camping
I haven't used my generator yet but will be using it in the next month or so. I was told by a friend that they have one and so far it has performed as well as the Honda EU2000i they had. I will be exited to have something other than my battery to run the electrical items in my 8 1/2' camper. I would drain the battery in one night and didn't want to keep buying batteries that would cost a couple hundred dollars. I like the idea that something quiet when running shouldn't bother your next door... more

Nice
I only give 3 stars on quality because it being brand new and some time the fuel gauge and hour gauge does not work! Not happy that a brand new generator has to be worked on because of this. As far as it running and being quiet I think it has Honda beat! Once gauges are fixed it will be a 5 star generator.
Pros: Quiet, Features, Easy To Use, Price

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

Very Impressed With The 1q2000!
I purchased this model after considerable research and it has performed flawlessly for the first 50 hours. I also have Honda's EU2000i and both generators deliver what I need at our cabin. The Generac is a little quieter partially b/c of the foam insulation added. I have a larger Generac XG8000E at home and trust the company's reputation and product quality.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: None

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 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.

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
