Thinking about buying----------

Hope this is in the right place. I listed it under electrical!

I have been looking at generators, prices, models. I have arrived at the
Boliy generator, manual start. The price is right but is the quality there as the dealer says?

Any comments will be greatly appreciated before I spend my hard earned $$$$$$$$

I don't have an answer for you, but I've been looking at them too. The specs are right in line with an RV'ers needs and the price really is great. If you buy one let us know how it works out for you.

That's one reason why I was looking at the Boily, it's noise level is 53 to 58 decibels, basically the same as the Honda 2000i.

if you want to get info on the Boliy, go to RV.net's Tech Issues forum.
they've had thousands of posts about the Boliy over the past 5 years.
there has been at least 3-4 generation versions, since it first came on the market.
i think most of the early issues have been corrected.

how much is your dealer asking for it?

We have the electric start model. No problems so far (only one season with maybe 20 hours on it). Electric start is a cheap option and well worth it, in my opinion.

I too have looked at the Boily generator. Specs on the motor are almost identical to the Yamaha EF2400i. The outside case looks to be nearly identical as well. Dry weights are nearly identical. I am pretty sure the Boily was pirated from the Yamaha EF-2400i. There is a youtube video of the Boily running as well as a Yamaha EF2400i. The Boily seems very comparble in noise level to the Yamaha. I can tell you that the Yamaha is very quiet because I have one. I have toyed around with the idea of getting a Boily for a little more capacity. I do love my Yamaha though.
