I've been shopping generators for a couple of months now. I'm almost 100% sure that I am buying a Honda from my local dealer. I've purchased a lawn mower from them in the past and they really are a top notch place.
My biggest question that I simply can't decide on is 1 EU3000is or 2 EU2000i's as you are running. I can get the single EU3000 for right at $250 less than the 2 EU2000i combo with the parallel kit.
Advantage of the 2000's are the weight (I'm not getting any younger) more total power output, and the flexibility of using one when the needs are less. Negatives are simply the additional unit to maintain, lack of electric start, and run time.
Advantages of the 3000 is one unit vs. 2, cost, electric start, quieter than the 2, and run time.
I simply don't know what to choose.
This little EG2800i is very interesting at it's price range. But, I think the noise is going to eliminate it for me without any other factor.
