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.

1st Time Start
The generator was very easy to start and was very quiet like other reviews said. I only run it for a half hour to try it out. I ran an electric chain saw off it for a test. I bought this generator for power outage backups. I feel satisfied with my choice.
I would certainly recommend it to others.

Gas Gauge Don't Work
I'm on my 3rd unit now and gas gauge hasn't worked on any of them. Part to fix it was on back order for 4 months . When it finally came in Generac was unable to get a hold of their service dealer that the part was delivered to. They sent me a new generator and has the same problem as the other ones. Starts easy runs good just gas gauge don't work. One of the reasons I bought it was I thought that was a cool feature. Guess I will just have to deal with it not working.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use

I Have Yet To Use My Generator For Camping
I haven't used my generator yet but will be using it in the next month or so. I was told by a friend that they have one and so far it has performed as well as the Honda EU2000i they had. I will be exited to have something other than my battery to run the electrical items in my 8 1/2' camper. I would drain the battery in one night and didn't want to keep buying batteries that would cost a couple hundred dollars. I like the idea that something quiet when running shouldn't bother your next door... more

Runs Good Provides Enough Power But Not All Features Work
Before i ordered this product i did a little research and saw that there had been some problems. I figured no big deal i'm sure they got all the bugs out. wrong first time i started it the fuel gauge did not work so the remaining run time does not work either. after looking this problem up i saw that some was told that the wires could be loose on the back of the gauge and were told to remove that panel and sure enough that solved his problem.

So I figured, cool I'll take the panel off... more

Nice
I only give 3 stars on quality because it being brand new and some time the fuel gauge and hour gauge does not work! Not happy that a brand new generator has to be worked on because of this. As far as it running and being quiet I think it has Honda beat! Once gauges are fixed it will be a 5 star generator.
Pros: Quiet, Features, Easy To Use, Price

Far Better Than It's Competitors!!!!
Best purchase I made in five years. I love this generator. I have a 9000 Generac and 3500 Honda. I am glad I did not go with the Honda version. Features, quality and price made the purchase decision easy. No doubts I would buy another one.
Pros: Quiet, Features, High Quality, Light Weight
Cons: None

Great Generator For The Money
I like it! Great little generator, much less expensive than the Honda, absolutely love the led fuel gauge and the led estimated run time, 3 speed levels low med and turbo low =automatic idle control great on fuel, light & compact I think 49 pounds very quiet I would say equal to Honda my only complaint would be under load it seems to "hunt" for the proper rpm nothing drastic but not a level smooth rpm. overall I like it a lot!!

Surprising Fuel Use
Operated, 27cu ft refridgerator - 150 watt pump - 3 100 watt lights - and a small fan using two 100 ft extension cables. Used (normal) middle setting, load indicator read 40%. Unit ran for 9 hours on first tank of gas. But I only had to add 1 Gal for refuel. No ramp up or down of throttle during operation. In all settings it is reasonably quiet as far as generators go but on economy it really is quiet. Fuel use was better than expected starts first pull everytime. Excellent materials and build... more
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

This generator is great, everyone was amazed how quite it was and the control indicators that let you know the status of operation. Best money I invested. Everyone wanted to know where and how.

Awesome Generator
This is the perfect generator for the average person with small electrical power needs,. It's very quiet and reliable and easy to start. The fuel economy is unbelievable. It's light weight and very portable, perfect for tailgating or camping. I would say Genreac has hit a grand slam with this one.
