Q: What is the difference between the Honda EB, EM and EU generators?

The Honda EU series is considered the "Super Quiet" series and range from 1,000 watts to 7,000 watts. These units are totally enclosed and primarily used for recreational purposes.

The Honda EB series are considered "Industrial" and range from 3,000 watts to 10,000 watts. These units have Full GFCI protected outlets to meet OSHA standards on jobsites.

The Honda EM series are considered the "Deluxe" series and range in 4,000 watts to 6,500 watts. These units have electric start and are primarily used for home backup.

Q: Are there problems with using this model to power individual home appliances during a power outage?
by Thomas from Pennsylvania on January 16, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

The Honda EB series would be able to power individual items such as a refrigerator, lights and fans without any problem. If you choose to install a transfer switch it Must be a GFI switch because this particular generator has full GFCI protection.

Q: Is there anything I need to know about these generators since they have a longer filler neck?
by Karen from Illinois on March 15, 2011

A: This generator has a longer filler neck and filler cap/dipstick for checking the engine oil.

This generator must not be filled with oil until the oil runs out of the filler neck. This will cause the engine to be overfilled with oil.

You must use the gauge in the oil filler cap/dipstick to verify the correct amount of oil in the engine. The engine is full of oil when the oil is up to the top of the cross-hatched area of the filler cap/dipstick. As always, do not screw in the filler cap/dipstick when checking the oil level.

You can find this information in the Owner's Manual as well.

This is just one of many things I have ordered from this company. I had looked into being a Generac distributor and found it to be alot less expensive to buy from Electric Generators Direct than from Generac directly. As a contractor I have had only good luck with this company.

From 20 kw generators to small transfer switches --I would not hesitate to order from these people.

Partially Satisfied
We had problems with the delivery. The driver refused to come up our driveway in his truck. He said it would cost $375 for a smaller truck to deliver it some other time.

We had to drive our Subaru and have it placed in the hatchback area at the end of the driveway. There was only just one driver for the delivery who said the machine was too heavy.
Pros: Durable
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

John,
Curb-side delivery is the norm with large items like generators. Unfortunately most residential locations don't offer optimal space for maneuvering a semi-truck up the driveway.
