I love my EU2000 I let jdub use it at msr for his warmers, I bought during Ike and ran my fridge and a widow unit with no problem, its super quiet and uses very little fuel, well worth the money to not have to hear a loud generator.

i have an inverter in my truck to run my laptop/small electronics,, i thought about doing this at first too but its a lot of wattage and 45 minutes between sessions would suck having your vehicle running,,,
like everyone else said,, i'm all for that honda generator, i've heard them running before and they're uber quiet

I suggest the Honda EU2000 as well. Search around a bit, or go talk to some sales managers at a few dealerships and see if they can work with you on pricing. They don't have much room to come down, but they have enough to justify you not buying another brand of generator in my opinion.

My 2000 does great with a set of warmers and have heard a lot of people running two sets on theirs, but I would not suggest it. Constant output shouldn't be more than 1500 on the EU2000.


Need something bigger get the EU3000 or buy (2) EU2000's and link them together.

Had some family just purchase the Honda EU6500iSA and it's right about the same db output as the 2000 at full load. Cool little generator able to power most of the house and still just as quite, just not as portable due to weight.

I got mine from Honda of Houston, but don't feel I have the freedom to say the price as it was a friends favor for me.

My best advice is to call up a few Honda dealers and see what kind of deal they will send your way. Or ask them to match a price you found elsewhere. I also suggest buying from a dealer over Northern Tool, but that's just me. When you need it serviced or fixed for some reason I always feel better knowing that I bought it from them. Not to mention they need money right now just like many other companies and a Honda dealer does more for me than a Northen Tool or similar store would ever pull off.

tire warmers

A set of tire warmers needs all of the output required to heat up the tires on a cool day.
65-70 degree days vs. 85-95 degree days are a big difference when trying to get the tires up to temperature on warmers.
Ask John from SCRC about this.

A Honda 2000 with one extension cord/splitter per output plug feeding one a set of warmers will barely do a proper job in cooler temps.

In warmer temps it might get close.

Cold tear and lack of grip cost money too.
Buy the right equipment when you can.
