I watched the vid, hard to tell how loud it is, depending on where my volume control is set at, but, comparing it to your voice, seems kinda noisy?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">$459.99 </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

A bit noisier than the Honda EU 2000 but at less than half the MSRP of the Honda it would seem a good deal. The last two McCulloch products I purchased at Costco had the exhaust suddenly rattle loose so keep an eye on the fasteners and vibration.

Let us know how it holds up.

It's hard to tell from a video, but I'm assuming your voice is close to the camera...

That gave me the impression that it's WAY louder than an EU2000 on econo-throttle and idling...

On the other hand it was around half the price, and I'm guessing probably about as quiet as anything in that price range.

what about fuel consumption?

We use our 2 honda's paralleled together
to run our 15,000 ac on the trailer
for the night.......before filling up.

How many hours do you get under load
with it?

--we like our Honda's and they ARE quiet
enough for me.......yeah.......

So, have not used it enough to see fuel economy, only got it last saturday and only ran it a few minutes the three times I played with it, but had it at work today and it impressed the guy at work that owns the Honda 1000ui or something like that, and he figured for what I got he felt I might have gotten a better deal than he did, BUT I do realise the proof is in the pudding so to speak and it has to last in the real world, not just a few minutes each time.
So will use it during this summers two week holiday in July and will run it to keep batteries up and what not.
So will have to wait till then to see what it is like in actual use.

Looks like a nice portable unit, but it is a full 10 DB louder than a 1000 or 2000 Honda. That's a huge increase in noise.

What's that?
Couldn't hear you over the generator.

All kidding aside, I have listened to the Honda 2000 at work and yes they are quieter, but this one is not that bad, ran it for awhile yesterday while doing some work, and it is not bad.
I don't run them much while camping, but nice to have if I need it.
Used to borrow a fellows Honda eu1000
Ran mine with it just outside the RV and it was decent, would not want it that close though, and am looking into making a bit of a housing for it to not only protect it from some of the rain we get up here, but to add a little soundproofing at the same time, I have the fairly large Computer type fans, was going to wire it in one end to keep a flow of cool air if I built an enclosure for it.
But during the day while camping, I don't imagine I would get many complaints, but I like to experiment and will see if I can make something that would work for a noise dampener.

If you're satisfied with it and the neighbors don't complain,you saved some $$. Thats what counts.
