If you’re looking at Honda generators for sale, we’re sure it’s because of their reputation for being some of the most reliable and quietest models on the market. It’s important to note, however, that each generator series has its own ideal applications and usage (from recreational to commercial). Before choosing one, you need to determine your application and desired wattage.

EU Series (1000 to 6500 watts)

Equipped with a variety of unique features (including parallel capability and inverter technology), the EU series is best suited to recreational applications, such as camping and RV usage. They typically range from 1000 to 6500 watts, making them ideal for powering smaller appliances (including microwaves, portable fans, televisions, computers and hair dryers).

  • Parallel capability (can link two generators together)
  • Inverter technology
  • Low noise level
  • 120W DC outlet battery charging
  • Easily transportable (lightweight frame, lifting handles and wheels)

We currently stock the EU10i, EU20i and EU30i models.

EM Series (4000 to 6500 watts)

Offering an efficient amount of power, the EM series is ideal for emergency/home back up in the event of a power outage. These generators typically range from 4000 to 6500 watts, making them ideal for powering bigger as well as smaller appliances (including refrigerators, freezers, sump pumps, televisions and computers).

  • iAVR technology (allows for a constant flow of power)
  • 10 second start (gives higher starting wattage for first 10 seconds)
  • Electric start

They typically range from 4000 to 6500 watts – their DAVR technology provides constant voltage stability – making them ideal for powering many appliances (including refrigerators, high pressure washers, microwaves and table saws).

  • DAVR technology (provides voltage stability with less fluctuation)
