I've been tempted to buy one of those Boily's for a long time. What attracted me to the 3600SI was the weight. At 68 pounds it has to be the lightest weight generator in that class.

Compare apples to apples here.
The Boliy and the Honda 3000 are two totally different animals. The Honda has a full 30 amp circuit and can handle a much larger load. The Boliy has a 25amp circuit and should run a 15000 BTU Ac unit just fine but don't expect to run a heavy load.
Don't get me wrong, I think the Boily is a great unit and I will probably buy one, they seem to a great alternative from the other guys.
I'd rather seek forgiveness than ask permission

I just got a fantastic deal on an electric start boliy.
I wanted to try it out but the pop-up is stored.

So I fired it up and plugging in my kill-a-watt meter.

I plugged in my wifes hair dryer (1500 watts) no problem.

Then I plugged in my air compressor (not a little one) at the same time. The kill-a-watt maxed out at about 2500 watts.

I turned off the gas and let both of them run until the generator stopped. As I was unplugging things I noticed that I had left the econo switch on. Wow, I'm very impressed with this thing.

It's not as quiet as the honda eu2000, but it's not bad either. The electric start and the weight is what sold me on it.

It amazes me how much the Boliy looks like the Yamaha. One site alleges that they are one in the same except for color.

Anybody know if that is true?

Only downside I see (except for possible reliability - Yamaha/Honda have established reputations, Boliy hasn't AFAIK) is the weight when compared to dual Honda/Yamaha configs...

i'm still on the Lifan-Equipsource 2600 (2800 max) inverter/generator bandwagon.

68# w/ elec start, the size of a small suitcase, 58dB, has auto idle feature, easily pushes my 13,500 Dometic Brisk-Air.
at half speed (w/ AC on), runs abt 4 hrs on a 2 gallon tank.

i have run it about 50 hrs in last 6 weeks. very impressive.

as low as $650 + $50 ship + no tax on internet.
