comparing apples to apples here are the specs and prices for Honda and Champion Inverter Gen.
Neither of these have remote start
Honda EU3000iS Model Info | Super Quiet 3000 Watt Inverter Generator | Honda Generators
Champion Inverter Generators
Cheapest I found them Champion $ 850, Honda $ 1999
What I read both were 58 DB Max, Champion 3100 watt max 2800 running , Honda 3000 watt max 2800 running Both should run a 13500 AC
From what I've read champion has fare reviews and I know most seem to think Honda is #1
I'm thinking about trying the Champion both seem very similar and price does matter when it's an item I may use for 1 week out of the year
