Enclosed Air filter not installedReview by Ross
No instructions or direction that you need to install the enclosed Air Filters.
Owners manual makes no mention of it either.
Easy to do takes under a minute,, but be sure to do it.
Also, you need to fill it with oil first. It comes empty.
We have all the Honda inverter generators.
This i3000 Handi is just that, super handi.
It's powerful, runs our RV A/C and Microwave separately and is really quiet.
Starts easy, runs for 7 to 8 hours on one tank of gas on Econo mode.

Comes double, almost triple shipping wrapped and arrived in good condition.
Beat the OTD Honda dealer price by $400.
Don't buy a cheap-o generator, but the best it's worth it.
If you camp, get a good cable lock. (Posted on 10/27/14)
Simply the best!Review by Ray
This is my second purchase from wise! I bought an Eu2000 two years ago......perfect experience! So when it came time to buy July 2014 my Eu3000I handi WISE was only one place to go! There're the best in customer service bar none! When it comes to generators Honda is amazing! My Eu3000I arrived in three days ( I live in Las Vegas ) wow! Perfect condition and with a free cover! From the time I opened the box till it was up and running was about thirty minutes.......... First pull........ Talk about quite, I was showing the wife how to start and operate it she had no problem starting it and she is a very tiny lady EVEN while it was running we were able to have a normal conversation......... The power go's down from time to time here in Las Vegas especially during the summer heat transformers blow we are talking 115 degrees! It runs my portable air conditioner, fridge lights,tv and it's clean power so your computers cell, all work just the way they should...... So if your looking for a generator look no further BUY it from WISE!!!! (Posted on 8/2/14)
Very happy with the generatorReview by John
I spent a lot of time researching before making this purchase. The EU3000i is exactly what I was looking for. This was my second Honda generator purchase from Wise Sales. The entire transaction was very smooth. I ordered on-line and a few days later the generator arrived at my door step, well packed and in perfect condition. Honda generators are a bit pricey but at the end of the day you get what you pay for.

worth every dimeReview by jeff
Had a GenTran manual 30A transfer switch wired into breaker panel. Have CFC bulbs. This runs gas furnace, refrigerator, TV and all the lights I need. Took all of 2 minutes to have up and running. Chicagoland experienced severe storms, tornados and power outages yesterday. My power is still out. I'll bet I havent burned 2 gal of gas. I can hear a couple other generators running in the neighborhood over mine. (Posted on 11/18/13)

Just what I neededReview by ZEBE
but this generator to compliment my motorhome. When remote camping I use it so I can send it away from the motorhome at night and use the air conditioner without any noise are co. Problems (Posted on 10/10/13)
Works Great - better than expectedReview by KLW
Ordered it on Wed, had it Friday to support the opening of dove season. Filled with oil and gas..fired up on second pull. Used it to power my RV - was able to run 13.5 AC, lights, fridge, tv and dvd player in 105 F heat with no issues.

I had rented the EGB3000 from HD back in July. It worked OK - but could not run much more than the AC and TV...anything else and it would trip. And was hard to move by yourself..

Spend the extra bucks and get the EU 3000i Handi. Easy to move, runs great, handles the load..and its quite!!!! (Posted on 9/13/13)
Great Service, Great Generator setReview by dwsq
Quick Delivery and the packaging was above what I expected. Double boxed with plenty of foam to protect the unit. On to the test. Read the manual, filled it with oil and gas, then proceeded to fire it up on the first pull. Hooked it up to a 20' Toy hauler with 13.5 A/C and fridge, Ice cold 20 minutes later without a glitch. Then pulled the 31' Class "C" RV out of the garage and hooked it up to the 15K AC running all lights and the fridge, again no problem. Temp today was 75 with high humidity in virginia. Observations, Easy to move with installed handle, two person lift with installed handles. Seemed a little louder than our Honda 2Kw but we stood right next to it with and had a conversation without saying "what". no Complaints on that. Cover came with the unit in the box and the free shipping is not to be expected on 80lbs. Thanks.

GoodReview by Robert
So far I like this generator very well. I am curious though. Do they make an exhaust kit that would allow this generator to be placed inside a boats engine compartment and exhausted thru the hull.? I have the space inside my engine room to do so but I would have to create an exhaust pipe system to keep the engine room cool and free of the generator exhaust. OTHER THAN THAT THE GENERATOR HAS BEEN EXACTLY WHAT I WAS AFTER. THANK (Posted on 8/13/13)
Nothing beats a Honda generatorReview by Mike
Ordered this Handi to replace an EU2000 that I sold to a friend. Honda perfection as expected! (Posted on 7/2/13)
Another great Honda product!Review by rogerracer
What can you say about Honda Generator? Easy start right out of the box. My concern was running the AC on my 5th wheel. No problem. AC is a 13,500 BTU unit from Coleman. Also runs electric RV water heater easily. Very happy with this choice. (Posted on 6/24/13)

Perfect unitReview by capecodrltr
Have used it twice in last 2 yrs and it has worked terrific. Now using it during Blizzard of 2013 and have been running for 48hrs non stop to power furnace, (gas hot water), refrig, micro wave, gas stove and oven, all my first floor lights and a few receptacles, some second floor lights, outside lights, garage door opener, and coffee pot. Would strongly urge folks to spend a few more $$$ and get this unit. I have it wired to an auxilliary panel and it is simple to connect and even uncomplicated to start- turn the key and it starts right up.... (Posted on 2/11/13)
Great!Review by Wood Doctor

Honda EU3000i Handi Inverter Generator Review by Ian
I purchased the Honda EU3000i Handi last year (2011) for hurricane Irene. I did not have to use it then but, definately used it for hurricane Sandy. This generator is lightweight, quiet, and also reliable. It is compact but powerful. I am thinking of getting a second one. (Posted on 11/2/12)
Very solid reliable power Review by ansul
I purchased one of these locally it is louder than the 3000 is and puts out less power but I have been quite impressed with mine. The weight difference was the factor for me was concerned it might not run my 15000 rv ac but it ran it fine in fact it will run it and also a portable 10000 btu at the same time if both are run on low.I would normally never do this but my Onan acted up and we were in a tight and it worked. Both fans on low and nothing else on and I me nothing! Fridge on propane and inverter unplugged. I have purchase a Lifan and a Etq inverter type gen in the past and returned them both. It is like they say you get what you pay for. I would just spend the money on the Honda (Posted on 6/28/12)
Great Buy!Review by David
I bought this 3000 Handi 3 months ago and I love it! It is mounted on a bracket at the left rear of a shaved ice truck and is used to power my roof top air. It is really as quiet as advertised. Fuel consumption for my use is 1.50 gals. used in 5 hrs. of running the air. Acceptable to me for the comfort. Highly recommend it due to noise, weight, and functionality. Pricey, but what isn't?
