Quiet Generator – Generac vs Honda Inverter Generators

Quiet Generator

Noise level is an important characteristic of a generator, we all want a quiet generator. As requested in the comments on other videos, we provide a quick test to demonstrate how these two quiet generators stack up. We know that this is not under load but we found that they are similar enough to each other to make the point.

Honda EU2000I quiet generator

The Honda EU2000I  is one of the quietest generators on the market. You can see from our tests it does very well and is a very quiet generator. The biggest complaint some people have about the Honda is its price. Many say it’s worth it, Handyguy Paul agrees. You can get it the Honda through Amazon.

Generac IQ2000 quiet generator

The Generac IQ2000 was just as quiet as the Honda. We could not discern any difference in our testing. Watch the video and decide for yourself. The Generac is a couple hundred bucks cheaper than the Honda, has a nicer fuel gauge and is equally quiet. We do a more in depth comparison in a different video. You can also get the Generac through Amazon.


Both the Honda EU2000i and the Generac IQ2000 are very quiet generators. You could easily use them for tailgating, camping, picnics, etc. They won’t be bothersome from a noise perspective and are both quality machines.
