I purchased this product last fall to be used in the mountains with my trailer in a membership camp ground. Several other units are in close proximity, so I was concerned with noise. This is a GREAT unit. Quiet and runs about 11 hours on 5 gallons of gas and starts on the first pull every time. It has an economy mode which is adequate for most day time uses and is so quiet it can barely be heard inside the unit. When microwaves, air conditioners and other more power hungry devices are used, it automatically accelerates. Tne noise level is higher, and can be heard up to 40 feet from the trailer but it still is relatively quiet. The unit is very light, about 60 pounds, so it is easy to handle by the elderly. I purchased this unit on the recommendation of a camp ground neighbor, who is about 60 feet away. He has been using it for several years and I never ever heard it running.

Good: Can run 12+ hours on a 3 gallon tank of gas. Very clean voltage without the radio frequency hash which you find on a Honda inverter generator. This generator can run my natural gas furnace, some lights, small TV and my main refrigerator without missing a beat. I briefly unplug the refrig. when I want to run my Mr. Coffee. This generator is liftable by one guy. Fits inside a standard car trunk with room to spare. Excellent build quality unlike the junk generators you see at the hardware stores. The Yamaha is much cheaper than the Honda equivalent.

So so: About as loud as your typical lawn mower.

Limitations: Oil fill is a little hard to get to. Not enough power to run my clothes washer or NG clothes dryer but that's no surprise. 12 volt output has a higher voltage than specified so I'll use my 12 volt auto battery charger if I need to charge batterys.

Comment: There is a GFI model and a non GFI model of this generator. I went with the non GFI model to have a more trouble free power source. Your mileage may vary. As I type this review my town is experiencing a typical winter ice storm with lines expected to go down. My Yamaha is fueled up and ready to go with four 5 gallon filled gas cans in reserve.

I test my generator every one to three months or so. It starts on the third pull every time. Exercising a generator plus recycling the gasoline every year will keep you prepared for your next power outage and there will be a next power outage.

I ran a load test consisting of two 1,500 watt heaters drawing a total of 3,000 watts. The generator powered them both for several minutes before the engine stalled. The overload breaker never tripped. Yes I know that the generator is only rated for up to 2,500 watts continuous load. I think that rating is correct.

Very happy purchase. I added a LP regulator and now I have a super reliable source of power for the fridge, TV, and some lighting during power interruptions. Not quite as silent as the enclosed Honda and Yamaha models but much quieter than the normal generators. The factory packaging was used for shipping and a little shim worked loose. Then some klutz at UPS must have dropped it so that the lower frame got bent but was easy for me to straighten it out. So, 5 stars for the generator and 3 stars for factory packaging. Advice from the experienced: if you use ethanol gas, run the tank and carburetor dry before setting it up in storage or the carb will get crapped up and you may get separated water in the bottom of the fuel tank. Better than that is to use non-ethanol gas with stabilizer and you can leave the fuel in the tank - still good to run the carb dry. Best is to convert to LP for a genuine no hassle experience. LP conversion may cost ~70-100 dollars and is not complicated for most handy folks.

Excellent. I've owned, bought, & used 6 eu2000 honda, 1 eu1000 honda, 1 em7000is honda, and 5 ef2800i yamaha.

The yamaha's exhaust is a little more pop-pop-pop than the honda's hummmmmmm sound. I does have more output than the eu2000 though.

Likes: fuel gauge, 3 gallon tank, easily replaceable starter rope, fuel shutoff valve, twist lok connector.

Dislikes: honda directs all heated air in 1 direction... useful for heating water in a metal can, drying shoes, etc. yamaha's cooling air goes multiple directions and is not usable in such a manner.

As anyone knows... the honda series or yamaha series are excellent units.

top quality, will last for years. I added a yamaha tri-fuel kit from US Carbs and it now runs fine on either gasoline, natural gas, or a portable bbq propane cylinder. this genset is rather easy to work on and carburator is easy to get to. tri-fuel kit took about 30 mins to install / easy peasy. will run bout 24hrs at 1/2 load on a typical bbq propane cylinder. how's that?

It is not as quiet as I had hoped, but I'm using the Honda EU gensets as the "quiet" benchmark here. this is a close second. However, this is definitely a quiet genset as compared to anything at home depot - sears - etc.

I bought my ef2800i in 2008 so it is now 7 years old. I have had no problems. It is one thing to give 5 stars to something you just bought but year after year of trouble free service is the real test! It always starts on the first or second pull. I have only done normal maintenance; clean and re-oil the air cleaner, change the oil, run carb cleaner through it occasionally and a new spark plug every couple of years. I always put in fuel stabilizer before storing it for the winter and shut the fuel valve and let it run out of fuel.

The EF2800i provides enough power for our 30 foot trailer when I need to run the microwave, AC or wifey's hair dryer and to charge the batteries if the solar panels haven't had enough sunlight during cloudy days or when parked in the shade. The only time it kicked out under a big load was when I tried to run the AC and discovered the carb needed cleaning and spark plug needed to be replaced. This is super easy maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, the open-frame design makes it much easier than the equivalent Honda which is enclosed in plastic covers. Everything is right there easy to access.

I purchased the Yamaha at a power equipment store on the recommendation of the store owner and reading a lot of reviews. I had briefly looked at cheaper generators but the more I read, the more I knew I didn't want to go the cheap route. Keep in mind this was 7 years ago and the choices were Honda and Yamaha for quality inverter generators. Either are a good choice but the Yamaha fit my needs better and was less money.

The Yamaha is not as quiet as the Honda but the difference is barely noticeable. It is quiet enough especially in the eco mode which throttles down unless max power is required.
