Generator sale

Recommended Posts

Non-oxygenated gasoline with a stabil product. I was told by a small engine mechanic to turn the gas off and run it dry. Just as it starts to falter, pull the choke. This completely drains the fuel from the carb. I store one generator this way and I start the other generator weekly. Waiting on ice!

I really can't comment on the other brands all I can say is I have over 400 hours on my Yamaha 2000iu and it runs like the day I bought it. It will run over 10 hours on less than a gallon of gas powering the TV and keeping batteries charged on the RV while hunting. I have put in a couple new NGK plugs and change the amsoil in it once a year. I only run non Oxy. I bought it for $899 brand new and it has more than paid for itself. Good luck on your purchase.

Brother bought one of those "specials".  I think it ran (more or less) two or three times before we hauled it to the land fill. He now has a Honda and it behaves just as it should. We each have one outside our trailers while hunting and at night you can barely hear them hummmmmmminnngggg. Start every time. I've had mine so long can't remember when I bought it.

DON'T fall for those "specials" -you might get lucky or you could be another loser at Chinese Roulette.

I purchased both my Yamaha 2000s from a dealership for $890 each.

I have the Honda EU2000i that I bought new in 2010 or 11, don't remember. It worked fine the first year and then turned to dump. Won't start if the temperature gets down to around 35-40 degrees. Had it in to get fixed 3 or 4 times. Each time they had it 3 or 4 weeks and said they replaced this or that and it should be fine. Each time I brought it home and left it sit in the cold overnight and it wouldn't start. Now if I want to start it I have to bring it in the house and warm it up for about a half hour and then it will start in three or four pulls. Never buy another Honda.

Whenever you start to use this generator then one thing is must you have to check is  that the wire connectors in the kill circuit. They are inside the cowling right behind the on/off switch on the side.It's a continuity loop so if a wire gets disconnected it wont start. Also pay attention to working of choke. Give some oil to it. Along with these tips you may also check other solutions in Honda EU2000i Manual. Check it now!! :)

FYI, Just bought myself a Honda EU2000i at Gander Mountain. They had a 20% off everything in the store (except guns and electronics) flyer in the mail. There retail price was $999. I got 20% off and then they gave me another $50 off for applying for a Gander card. Got it out the door for $750 plus tax. Great deal!!

I can vouch that the Yamaha 2000, Champion 2000, and Honda 2000 inverter generators are all very low noise and they all work well. The only difference in them is the Honda has a fuel pump the yamaha and champion are gravity fed. So if running an extended run fuel tank the Yamaha and champion need to be gravity fed. 

 

My my uncle bought his Yamaha for $899. I bought my champion for $450, and later got a Honda from my cousin for $200.......but it took about $200 in cover parts and the bottom plate to get it back in shape.... 

 

i've heard wen was good but haven't seen or tried one.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
    • Congrats Nice Bird!
    • Congrats! Way to stick to it.
