The EU7000is (inverter and electric start) portable generator from Honda Power Equipment is designed for fuel efficiency, clean power output, quiet operation and longer run times.

Featuring electronic fuel injection, the push-button electric start generator (no choke) is powered by an OHV GX390 four-cyclinder engine that produces 7,000 volt amperes with 5,500 VA rated output and 120 or 240 volt output. The generator weighs 262 pounds, has a 5.1-gallon fuel tank and can operate for six hours at rated load or an estimated 18 hours at quarter load.

Separate triple chamber construction (exhaust, engine and intake) and fuel-conserving Eco-Throttle design enables the generator to operate at approximately 60 decibels (equivalent to human speech) at rated load, while inverter technology with a wave-form distortion factor of less than 2.5 percent allows it to power computers and other sensitive electronic equipment that require consistent electrical current with a stable sine wave or signal.

“Low noise output is critical for use in many home, work or recreational applications,” says Tom Pernice, generator marketing manager, Honda Power Equipment. “By extension, some job sites are moving to more quiet generators to ensure both the comfort of those working on the site as well as those working or living near the site.”

The generator is 47.2 inches long (excluding handle and wheels), 27.6 inches wide and 28.4 inches tall. It includes a wheel kit with semi-pneumatic tires and folding handles as standard equipment.

An iMonitor digital display provides hours of use, performance data, battery charging status and onboard diagnostics.

The generator requires only basic maintenance, as outlined in the owner’s manual. 678/339-2600; www.powerequipment.honda.com.
