I'm looking to get two more small gennies. I already have two Honda EU2000i's and have zero complaints about them. If I'm using an electric appliance away from the house it's easier to pull one of these gennies out than it is to unroll and reroll an extension cord. I'm 99% certain I'll go with Hondas again as I'll still be able to parallel any two of them if one goes kaput, plus I might be able to cobble together a working genny out of two or three non-working ones should the need ever arise. And I won't have to stash another kind of maintenance/basic repair parts. I've never used the Yami but I'm intrigued by it and it's slightly larger brother, the EF2800iC. Wisesales.com has about a $200 price increase between the Honda and the smaller Yami, I didn't even think to ask about the bigger Yami when I called.
Lots of people around here have experience with gennies in general and the ones I've mentioned in particular. If you were going to buy your generators over again from scratch with the knowledge you have now, what would you get(not limited to the ones I've mentioned), and why?
P.S. If anyone knows of a diesel genny in this size, please let me know!
