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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
