Any of the inverter generators are quiet. Honda seems to have the most fans here in this group as well as others. Yamaha, Champion and Predator all have differing opinions. I have a Predator 3500 watt with only a about 10 hours on it that is doing OK. It runs my 13.5K Ac and other appliances. Just have to be careful not to run 2 high draw items a the same time. I did have a rough idle issue but that has been resolved.

When I purchased our Yamaha 3000iSEB generator I asked the dealer which he has had better experiences with, a Honda or a Yamaha. He replied, "which color do you like better, blue or red?" I like the idea of the extra starting boost the Yamaha provides so went with that. I also like the gas shutoff valve on the Yamaha so I can run the carburetor dry to minimize potential carb problems from gas left in it; maybe the Honda has that also.

Both the Honda and the Yamaha suffer from one big problem though...they are heavy! I almost went with two 2,000 watt units but I just didn't want to have two generators.

I believe it will take two Honda 2000s.Just put my Honda up for sale switching to the Predator 3500.Half the costs. On my last generator we put 600 hours on it in eight years.Worth the dollar gamble to us!

Champion. 1/2 the cost and then you get a 30 amp RV outlet which you do not with the Honda's. Same decible level

Champion 2800/3100 Watt inverter/generator here, 365 hours and starts at first pull, half a Honda investment.

My Honda eu2000i companion generator has a 30 amp outlet.

Kahoneys, Same decibel level, which one do you have? Watts?
