Reliable but Expensive!

published

My EU10i is around 10 years old and gets used maybe a few times a year for camping and blackouts.
It's reliable, relatively quiet (although the Yamaha EF1000is is noticeably quieter) and withstands short duration overloads quite well when fridges and motors start.
When running at low loads of less than a couple of hundred Watts, it will run for around 8 hours & 20 mins on 2.1lt of fuel.

Things I don't like about it: There is no separate fuel tap to run the carby out. Checking the oil level could be made easier so you don't need a tool to open the side panel. They are expensive to buy and service in Australia compared with overseas counterparts, even after factoring in exchange rate and freight.

EXCELLENT

published

i have had my honda EU10i now close to 2 years and it hasn't missed a beat i have used premium unleaded fuel in it since day one and the fuel economy is excellent when ever i store the generator i emptied the fuel out and replaced the oil in it every year and i'm on my second spark plug and first dust filter kit. i have only ever run my engel, lights and to charge my deep cycle battery when camping and never really pushed it to the max i would strongly recommend to anyone to spend the extra $ and buy an honda

Reliable to start every time but in hotter climates does not produce full1kva output.when were in the top end of Qeensland Australia is when it did not have full output. When we were in NSFW northern rivers area we had no power loss and the same when we were in Robe area of SA

Quiet and lightweight

published

We've gone through a 4 days power outage during the stormy season early 2013, and decided to get a quiet generator as backup. Quietness is the main priority as we live in a suburban area. The unit really surprise me with the its noise level as it is very acceptable with the ECO mode on.
The Honda EU10i managed to power my 400litre Fisher Paykel fridge, and 40 inch LCD TV with ease. I were a bit worry that it will struggle to power my fridge due to the starting power requirement of the fridge compressor (3 to 4 times the listed power), but it does it with ease.
Quietness, lightweight

Back up for caravan

I found the 1 kva was all that i required to run the van battery charge the main fridge as well as the waco in the 4x4 it also ran the lights in the van as they are all led and very low wattage,
my stove is all gas and the microwave is not required on overnight roadside stops. the hot water well the kettle will do, the job in a non park situation for the extra money for Honda its well worth it.
Weight, starts first pull, so quiet.

My Honda UE10i DC output on NO load is 25 volts DC. Is this normal?
It also hunts on NO load and smells obviously rich. How do I adjust the mixture setting and/or stop the hunting?
