You must be one of those type of people. I buy and appreciate quality, but have found on this subject, there are folks who have to have the appearance of the best at any cost. Silly even if you have money to burn. It would have cost me more to fix the "so called best" Honda than it cost me to buy a new Champion which was a 3100 with a decent warranty. Sorry sir if I hit a nerve.

I wanted a Honda 2000 after I bought my Aframe but a friend had a Honda 3000ei still in the box but 2 years old for $600
It weighs 147 lbs empty but I couldn't pass up the price. Had a welder install a hitch on the back of the Aframe and bought a rack where it stays
It is so efficient and quiet and let's me run everything simultaneously

We like the Yamaha's features.
Briggs and Stratton is getting into the small generator market. Any reviews?

I bought a Champion simply because it's a quality generator that costs significantly less than it's other brand equivalents.

It seems you never hear anyone saying a Honda is "as good as a xxxxxx brand just more expensive."

It is always "good as a Honda"........just sayin.

Just an observation.

I bought my EU2000 several years ago and it works great for the few times a year I need it. We must remember that Honda earned their place in a time and market with few real competitors, at least for inverter gens. Times change, technology improves, and competition appears.
Anyone else notice that Honda engines are not as common in lawn equipment these days? I am in the market for a 3Kw generator now and anxiously follow the reviews on the relatively new Briggs & Stratton inverter gens.

I have a Yamaha 6300 that I was using when we were dry camping but now it powers 75% of my house. Ultra quiet, smooth and remote start. Over 500 hours on it and still running like it was brand new.

I don't follow the reasoning of this post at all,.... its not the "other brand" owners who challenge the Honda owners when they've chosen Honda and not the "other brand", its the other way around,..... its some Honda owners who present the greatness of the Honda and a condemnation of anything that's "not" Honda,...... for an "other brand" owner to respond that their gen. is "just as good" as yours, seems right to me,..... how would you say it differently? They aren't saying the Honda owners gen. choice is bad, like some Honda owners say about their gen. choice, they're just saying that they're happy and satisfied with their gen. choice and why should that bother you or anyone else?
