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: Can I use this with Honda EU3000i Handi generator?
by Roy from New Jersey on September 06, 2013

A: Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Honda EU3000 Handi is fitted with a 30A 120V high voltage connection. As such, this transfer switch and inlet box will not be compatible accessories. We would suggest that your review of our 120v products for compatible equipment.

We feature two good options for transfer switches. Either the indoor switch,
30114A or the outdoor equivalent, 30114B

Now all you will need is a 10' 30-amp 3-prong power cord; PC3110.

Tranquility
I recently began living on my boat in a S. Florida marina which has no electricity available at my slip. Summer is brutal without AC, so I bought the Honda (handi)..it runs my big boat AC easily and is so quiet the neighbors don't complain. Bottom line: my quality of life is restored with the added extra that I can easily move the generator with the handy wheels and handle. I might add that I'm a 67 year old woman living alone on the boat and the Honda has helped make it possible.

Awesome Midsize Generator
This is an awesome generator. Small enough that I can take it camping but big enough to provide essential back up power for critical things like fridge, freezer, pellet stove and a couple lights if electricity goes out. Very handy with handle and wheels, sips gas, and talk about quiet. Perfect!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

This Is A Jewel
I took advantage of payment by check to save a little off the cost of this generator from Electric Generators Direct. The order and delivery process was smooth. The R&L Carriers truck driver laughed about the light weight and compact size of the generator as he grabbed the box from the truck.

I unpacked the generator and added oil to the crankcase after reading thru the owner's manual fairly carefully. A small funnel with an extended spout would be helpful to get the oil into the... more

Ped In Person Matches Online Presence
I live in Connecticut; and before paying a couple of thousand dollars for a generator over the Internet, I happened to be in Chicago on business so I stopped by PED's offices in Bolingbrook to see what they were all about. I found them to be helpful and exactly as they present themselves online.

When I got home I ordered my generator and it was delivered within the time frame indicated. After Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, I watched as many people flocked to the big box stores to buy... more

Honda Eu3000 After Several Days Of Use.
This generator started on the first pull, runs very well. Ran our RV air conditioner without problem. Great generator, expensive, but worth it. Light enough to be handled by one person if needed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, High Quality
Cons: Expensive

Great Generator.
I bought this from Electric Generators Direct last week. Got it in about 2 days. Amazing service and shipping. I will use this company again.

I wanted a generator I could use on my Class-A motor-home that was better on fuel than the 7000 watt Onan that came with it. I love the fact it moves so easily on wheels and I didn't mind paying a bit more for this model. This sucker runs my 13,500 btu A/C unit from 2002 perfectly and I don't have to take it off eco mode.

Amazing. I got about 5+... more

Wasn't Sure
I wasn't sure about my purchase after speaking with my electrician and he advised me that I probably needed 220 V but after I hooked up this Honda first crank started up in amazingly it ran 70% of my house all my lights refrigerator furnace VCR or DVD dish. When I opened this unit and pulled it one time and it started I knew I made the right purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Well Built Generator
I bought this generator to provide power to our company turbine aircraft through a separate transformer/power supply that requires A.C. input. The Honda Handi Generator does a great job!

It sits on the bottom of a Rubbermaid service cart and the power supply sits atop. This gives me great portability and, because of the well designed generator, great functionality. It's also nice to have the very quiet operation.

I purchased this as a back-up generator for my 40 ft boat. It powers the 12,000 btu air conditioner, battery charger and other peripheries. Bullet proof reliability.
