Over the past 30 years or so I have experimented with many different generators. Then, about ten years ago or so I bought our first Honda EU2000. The search is over! The EU2000 is the most powerful small generator I have ever used. You can actually run two Skill 77 worm drive saws at the same time. Best of all, it uses very little gas. Need more power? Buy two EU2000's and hook them together with the optional connecting cord and you have 4000 watts of quiet power. The inverter on the 2000 is a Tru Sine inverter and you can run computers, charge batteries and sensitive equipment without damaging.

Under 50 pounds, it is easy to carry and stow in an airplane, sled or 4 x 4 trailer. At around a thousand bucks, that's only 50 cents per watt!

There are plenty of small generators out there but for dependable power the Honda can't be beat.

The only disadvantage I have found is that it doesn't want to start in cold weather. You must keep it from getting too cold, by that I mean below 20 degrees. Fortunately, it is small enough to fit into a car, truck or even a tent to warm it up.
