Great Deal on Generators...need to choose one

Not sure how well known this is. Wise Sales as a really good deal on Honda EU2000iA and Yamaha EF2000iS generators for $894.90 shipped. Same price for either one.

It seems the Honda tends to get the most press, but the Yamaha is about on par with it. Given that both are priced exactly the same, what would be your choice and why? I'm about to order one and I'm not sure which one to buy.

Do you like red or blue better? I don't think either is a bad choice. We have a Honda EU3000is and I would not trade it for anything but that being said if I would have got a smokin deal on a Yamaha I would have taken it instead at the time of purchasech when it comes to engines and generators.

Hmmmm, I have a Yama EF2400is, but if both are the same I might go with the Honda......I think you can parallel 2 Hondas (with a kit), but not sure about the Yamahas.

No complaints at all with my Yama.

you can parallel both. since both are excellent products, i'd compare specs and go with the one with the better specs.

you can't go wrong with either.
as others said, i have a Honda 2000 and love it but if i could have gotten a better deal on the Yammy, i'd bought it.

Thanks all. I really couldn't see any difference in specs except for the couple of pounds more weight on the Honda. Given that the Honda is substantially more popular and has a much more established track record, I went with it over the Yamaha. Pretty much a coin toss. I think either would be technically equal to the task.

Wise Sales.....Bought my Yamaha 4500 on sale last year at a super low price and received the remote start for free,installed for free,plus free shipping !! I was a little worried about what I would receive after ordering because they were so cheap(even cheaper with sale price + free-b's )(thought I might receive old unit or something)...It was drop shipped just as they said and was manufactured the month before purchase ( I purchased in Aug-2010) (manufacture date on plate-July-2010).....They even called to see if everything came as expected and asked if the remote start was working OK -- They prep it before they shipped it ! So oil, etc. all in and checked ! Great place to purchase....A++++ Customer Service !! PS -- See you went with Red....blue is just as good ! Good choice on either model the blue can run in parallel also !

Well, your handle is "BigRed". I would have expected something different for you.
