Hey Guys and Gals! Not entirely sure if this is the right area to be posting this thread but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations when it comes to purchasing a portable generator for recreational use? After a little research I think I am in the market for something in the 2000-3000 watt range. Honda and Yamaha seem to be the industry standard but are there any cheaper options that are comparable in performance? Also I have decided that I want an inverter generator as opposed to a conventional generator as I plan on using it with sensitive electronics and also want it to be as quiet as possible. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!!

Honda. Hands down. You get what you pay for. You'll have no regrets.

I've done work for Generac - even they used Honda motors on their high end portables for many years.

Honda or Yamaha. Cant go wrong either way. Have both and as long as you maintain em then Will do great. I actually use my Yamahas more. Since they are just a smidge quieter DB wise than my Honda's.
