If you compare apples to apples. The EU3000is which can only give you 2800 watts continuous power weighs in at 130 lbs. To me that would be heavier....

Gotcha. I never looked at a 3000 watt genny but saw the 3600 boliy genny while searching for the 2000 watt generators.
Thank you

If you do have a chance to try one I do recommend it. They seem to work well and the remote start is sure nice. Bang for your buck I would give it 9 out of 10.

I am still concerned about 68db as it seems to be alot louder than the 58db in a smaller generator. I will probably never use a generator unless boonedocking but may use it in a truck stop or walmart.

From the boily website. Shows 58db. But the smaller he sets would be quieter. I guess it depends on what you want for output. If you don't need the extra power the 2000 Honda would be the better choice. It would burn less gas and take up less room. Click image for larger version

Boliy inverter generators.

This is the link that I have for purchase. They also sell the electric start, and extended run versions that can attach to external fuel tanks.

That is a good comparison. Honda has some good competition. The best part is the cost savings over the Honda. And of corse Honda will step up their game and progress will continue!

Another consideration on the Boliy. I've had mine 3 years, had several minor problems, but nothing I couldn't handle, until recently. Inverter just started being unable to handle any sort of electrical load, and I don't know why. My local small engine/generator guy throws up his hands, and won't touch it. The problem with that is, I can't find anyone who can service the thing (I live in Washington state), closer than British Columbia, Canada or S. California. And I still haven't been able to find out if the dealer in S. CA actually services what I have. And if they do, that means I'm going to have to pay shipping both ways in addition to whatever costs are associated with fixing the thing.

My point - I like the inverter, very much appreciate the low weight, and it did exactly what they say it will do. But Boliy has nothing close to a dealer network, and that means if some problem crops up bigger than a bad gas cap gasket or a loose connection, unless you live in Canada or California/Texas, getting service is going to be a problem. A big problem.

Contact these folks to see if they can offer help with getting it serviced.

Thanks Pasdad1, I've done just what you suggested. I had looked at their site several times, but hadn't found a phone number for them until your reply. Then I go to their website and it's all over the place. Go figure.

They might be able to help. I do live in Canada and all I have to do is call my local Fleet Brake Dealer and they are happy to help me out.

Plus costs less

Mine ran pretty steadily 3 days through one of the East Coast hurricanes (Irene?) and provided plenty of house lighting as well as keeping the fridge from a melt down. I've neglected it by leaving old gas in it and it still starts (so far)
