Q: Iq vs ix 2000 what is the difference.
by Garry from Michigan on June 28, 2016

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

While both units feature a low oil shutdown, they are fairly different otherwise. To start, the iX2000 features status LEDs, 12VDC outlet, 4.7 hour run time at 25% and an AC rated output of 2,000 watts. Conversely, the iQ2000 portable inverter generator features status indicators, 7.7 hour run time at 25% load, and a 1,600 watt AC rated output. The iQ2000 also features a PowerDial™ for operation, run time display, and PowerBar™ to monitor your unit's output capacity. Moreover, the iQ features a lower sound output, three modes of operation, and is parallel compatible, whereas the iX2000 is not.

The IQ2000 also has a longer warranty.

If you have any other questions please let us know.

Winner!!!
I have both the Honda EU2000is and the Generac IQ2000. So far the Generac is more quiet and has better features like the time remaining on fuel at any level of power and an output readout when demanding current. I'm very impressed.

One Worked The Other Leaked Gas
I bought 2 Generac IQ 2000's. One works just fine as advertised but the other one leaked gas from somewhere around the carburetor the first time I started it. I took it to a certified repairman and was told that it takes at least 6 weeks to get parts for these things. This seems way out of line to me. 6 weeks is way to long to wait for parts especially for a generator I just bought. That's a terrible way to take care of your customers.

Had Leaky Gas, But Replacment Performs Great
The unit shipped had a gasoline leak when running. Called Generac and they shipped a replacement which doesn't have the problem. They said they're experiencing quality issues at the moment. That can happen to *any* vendor. Their response was very good, and the replacement performs very well with great features.

Great Generator Very Satisfied For Emergency Communications
Very satisfied with Direct sent them an email and they responded with an answer to my question. Great service and delivery. With that said I live in Florida and I am a ham radio operator. Bought the generator for emergency communications for portable stations. I now have 19 Hrs on the unit and put it through some paces. I set up portable for National parks on the air and ran the generator for about 6 hrs before the rain and storms set in,on SSB and labtop computer no RFI, clean power on 20... more

This Is A Must Have Item
I work in television and film and we are constantly looking for generators that are super quiet. If I had to rate this generator from 1 to 10, I would give it a 9 1/2.

Excellent Product!
I received my Generator this morning. I followed the instructions and was very pleased with the quality so far. Easy to use and the instructions were clear. I tested the unit with low draw on economy and then on turbo with about 20 percent. The unit is very quiet and is simple to use. I ran the unit for 3 hours without a problem. We have used Honda's up at our camp but I am impressed with the gauges and time left indicators. Very quiet! Looks like a home run for Generac!!

Bought two with the coupling device. One works perfectly. The second shows no gas or time to run even though both were setup exactly the same. Contacted customer service on Monday.

Under heavy load both are quiet. Setup was easy. Dissatisfied with issue on second inverter.
Cons: Unreliable

I was very satisfied with everything about this generator. I have only run it a bit, real tests will come in the summer. I will say it is even quieter than I thought..Everyone I have dealt with at Electric Generators Direct have been been very courteous and helpful.

Not Impressed!!! Old Model Is Better & Cheaper
Used this new model twice and tried to run a 1400w waffle maker and it overloaded twice and would not start again until next day!!!
don't buy this item.

Brian,
In some instances, it could be the actual appliance you're trying to use that could be giving you the issue. Generac stands behind this product with a 3-Year Limited warranty. I'd suggest bringing it in to a local servicing dealer who can diagnosis the problem for you. To find a local service center Generac can be reached directly @ 888-436-3722 or Generac Dealer Locator

Buy Only Honda
Brand new, never had chance to use. All indicator lights are non working. Called Generac, they say to take to authorized warranty dealer to fix. So happens this dealer has always had problems with Generac and refuses to carry their product. It's been with this dealer for 3 weeks now and no solution(s) yet.
