  4 Questions
Q: Is the Yamaha 1000is generator USFS compliant?
I want to use on forest service land.
Spark arrestor etc.?
Ditto for the 2000 model.

Thank you
Don

by Don from Washington on October 09, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry....

Yes, the Yamaha inverter generators meet all USFS requirements and they all include spark arresters.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What does ECON stand for on the switch? While running the generator what position should if be in?

Thanks
Mark

by Mark Babin from Louisiana on February 08, 2012

A: ECON stands for Economy mode and the generator will alter the engine RPM based on the load on the unit giving it a quieter output and use less fuel.

The standard running mode keeps the unit running at top RPM for heavy loads keeping the output at its highest.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: How much oil does the Yamaha EF1000IS hold?
by Anonymous on April 21, 2011

A: The Yamaha EF1000IS holds 0.34 quart oil.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I am buying a Yamaha 1000is from you. If I plan to not use the generator for a period of 4 months, so I just have to use Sta-Bil in the fuel and I am fine? Or do you recommend a draining procedure between uses, or some other kind of procedure?

by Mitch Carter from California on January 24, 2011

A: We definitely recommend the use of Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in your generator as it will keep your fuel fresh for up to 2 years. We do recommend that you start the generator once a month to lubricate the internal parts in the system and also throw a small load on it to verify good operation.

Complete Review Of The Yamaha Ef1000is Generator
As an electrical & electronic engineer and technician I review the Yamaha EF1000is inverter generator and explain why I added this unit to my stable of 5 generators. I explain how this is ideal for use with my RV alongside the existing 3.6kW onboard Onan and why much information on generators is often wrong - or most often just over hyped.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Store

The Thing Seized Up & Died After Less Than A Year
I bought this generator to take with us on a sailing trip across the Pacific Ocean. After a few months of use the thing seized up. The motor would not turn. Impossible to get the thing to turn over much less get it started.
Cons: Durability

Bruce,
Engines seize up because of a lack of oil.

Brand Rep
Bruce,
I'm sorry to hear about your generator seizing up. Months of running without checking the oil or changing the oil will cause an engine to possible seize up.

This Generator Answers A Lot Of Problems
I ordered this generator from Electric Generators Direct on Sunday of the Labor Day weekend--it arrived by standard FedEx delivery the following Thursday! (Note: deliveries were unavailable on Friday and Saturday due to Hurricane Irma issues in the Savannah, GA area). Small, light and quiet this little generator can answer all the basic survival issues identified by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. When paired with a wattage-adjustable induction cook-top (600, 900 or 1,800 watts) like the... more

A Lot Of Usefulness In A Compact Package
Our generator is 3 years old, and still starts easily and runs quietly. We originally bought it just to run a blender during Jimmy Buffett concert tailgates, but we've used it more than we ever thought we would.

This little guy saved our freezer full of beef during an 8 day power outage, it's run a sound system for the Flying Pig Marathon, and charges everyone's i-Everything when we go camping... as well as running a huge fan to keep us cool and comfortable.

It's a little more expensive... more

Yamaha Ef1000is - 900 Watt Inverter Generator Review
I got this generator two years ago when my wife was put on a C-PAP for her sleeping disorder. I knew her machine was computerised and we would need clean power to run it.
I first looked at the Honda 1000 watt inverter and was seriously considering it, but I decided to do a little comparing of the different brands first. I'm glad I did! The Yamaha blows the Honda out of the water, longer run time less noise, engine runs at a much slower speed and the 12 volt DC cables are included. They cost... more

Yamaha Ef1000is - 900 Watt Inverter Generator Review
My Yamaha 1000i is the only one of it's type in my sailing club. Everyone else has a Honda. The Yanaha is by my follow sailing club members the LEAST noisy gernator in the club. We cruise often, and usually use generators to power AC accessories. My Yanaha uses far less fuel than the Honda's, and produces quite a bit less niose. This is especially true when the load is less than 75% of maximum. At full output, the Yamaha and Honda's are about the same noise level, with the Yamaha slightly... more

So Far, Fantastic.
Running our new Yamaha EF 1000 IS generator 5 hours a day for two weeks now and it is a CHARM.

We are off grid more by default than intention. Even on grid, though, we would have a backup. Our 7000 watt generator has been great for three years of occasional demand, arranging our schedule to do everything while it was running -- construction tools, welder, washing machine and charging our house batteries along the way (which run our minimized refrigeration and house lights). It pushed... more

Yamaha Ef1000is - 900 Watt Inverter Generator Review
I purchase my Yamaha January 2005 andicipating the upcoming hurricane season. I live in South Florida and boy I am glad I made the purchase.

This little baby ran my 32" Sharp LCD tv, cable box, dvd player, notbook computer, internet & wireless router, 1 ceiling fan and my 18 cu/ft refrigerator. All while sipping on gas.

Best yet, it is quite as a curch mouse. All my neighbors were wondering why I had power. It served me well through both Katrina and Wilma.

So Far So Good
I originally bought the Honeywell 800 watt and had lots of problems. The Yamaha seems to have much cleaner power so far and even though it is only rated at 100 watts more than the Honeywell it seems to produce more power than the Honeywell. Also much quieter. The economy mode works great where it would surge on the Honeywell. very smooth on the Yamaha. Cant comment on reliability yet because it is new but will over time. So far very impressed. You get what you pay for. 3 times the price of the... more
