A great generator!Review by Gerald
Value
Quality
I purchased one of these 3000is generators in 1999 and have used it at my camp for most of my power needs for 15 years now. I usually run it for approximately 20 hrs. per day when I am there (about one 3-1/2 gallon tank full). I re-fill the tank and it's ready to go for the next day. I spend 30 to 120 days there per year. (probably an average of 100 days per year). This generator amazes me! I change the oil each year and inspect it for wear and tear etc. I still use the original battery that came with it! I haven't had any problems with this generator since I've had it except for the economy mode switch (the little switch tab came off and it stays in economy mode). I have started it in sub-zero temps ( the winters in Maine can be a little harsh) and it still fired right up with the electric start. I highly recommend this generator. Very economical for a 3000 watt.....an soooooo Quiet!! Amazingly dependable!! (Posted on 9/7/14)

Just want to let you know my generator was delivered yesterday. No problems. The generator was by itself on a skid. I was waiting for the driver (needed the generator) and when he showed up I drove my little tractor with the front end loader up to the back of the trailer, the driver pushed the carton into the loader, I signed and he was on his way...15 minutes max. The generator works very well to run my jackhammer. One thing...don't know if you want to make this known to your customers...I received a tracking number and expected delivery date from the shipper, but when I called just for some info I was informed that residential deliveries had to have an appointment. So we did that and all went well, but I would have waited in vain had I not called for a different reason...just an FYI. Overall very pleased with the transaction.
Thanks.

Honda EU3000is a great generatorReview by ROBERT
Value
Quality
I have had 2 Honda EU2000is and now have 1 Honda EU6500is to back up my home appliances, lights, and a well pump. I needed a good reliable generator for another home to back up a nat gas heater furnace fan, few lights, and a refrig.
It was between the Yamaha EF3000ISEB and the Honda EU3000is. I was able to find 2 dealers that had them in their showroom. I looked them both over and thought about them for a couple of weeks but settled on the Honda even though the "boost" on the Yamaha was interesting. I was tempted to go the Yamaha route but I could not find anyone who could really explain how the 'boost' works. " I comes from the battery" I was told. But what if the battery is dead or weak? No really good answer.
I am sure the Yamaha is a great generator but I have had good luck with all my honda products and I like that the controls are on the opposite end of where the exhaust is instead of on the side. The end controls make it easier for me when I use the generator weather cover I made so I bought the Honda EU3000IS. I also bought the swivel 4 wheel kit which is easy to put on.
As far as dealing with Wise goes it was another great experience. This is my 5th purchase from them in the past several years. Always great service. I had it shipped to my house in Washington state with the tailgate delivery and it only took 4 business days to arrive all packed up on a pallet.
You won't go wrong with this Honda.

My wife and I love to go camping all summer long and we were looking to up our game and get a better generator then the lame one that we had. So we did a lot of research and were trying to figure out the best bang for our buck. That ended up being Wise Sales. They have the cheapest price around for the generator and they also provide free shipping and no tax. How great is that is that. So much savings! This generator is freaking awesome! We have gone camping so much more now that we have this generator. We also love the fact that can now camp year round because no one knows that we are really there because of how quite this thing is. The people at Wise were great to work with and it was shipped so quick we couldn't believe it. Thanks!!! (Posted on 6/6/14)

Wise Sales was a very good place to purchase, due to price and shipping. I had looked around and this was the best place to purchase it from.
After doing lots and lots of research, we decided on the EU3000is, due to the fact it has an eletric start. (wifes very important input).
Opened box, hooked up battery, added oil and gas and it was a go. I wont be using this for at least another month, then I can give a review on its operation.
Thank you Wise Sales, I will do business with you again when the need arises.

The Honda generator was well priced, shipped the same day as ordered and arrived within three days. The free freight made them the best purchase option. I couldn't ask for better service.

The generator, while more expensive than others, is worth the extra cost. The sound level was so low that we rarely knew it was running. Its ratings are real, not inflated. (Posted on 12/3/13)

GREAT GENERATOR!! Super Economical & Very Quiet!!Review by Sean
Value

I have used my Honda EU 3000is for 3 years of continuos service on my Toy Hauler/ mobile office. I have the generator hard wired & mounted in its own enclosure on the front of my RV/mobile office.

I opted for Wise to install the remote start & all day long use copiers computers, Scanners, laser printers & everything else.

The EU3000is also has Eco switch which regulates the generators power consumption & throttle response which is a great fuel saver.

The EU3000is is also very quiet only 54db normal conversation is 65db.

I did a lot of research prior to my purchase and 3 years later couldn't be happier!!! & I really put it through it's paces over the last 3 years & it continues to give me uninterrupted service.. If you buy the Honda EU3000is you will not be sorry it's one of the better choices I have made.

The people at Wise Equipment are AWESOME! and the low price is the icing on the cake!!

I did a lot of research on generators before deciding to get the Honda EU3000is and made a lot of phone calls to the people at Wise Equipment asking questions & getting answers during my information compiling stage and they were always happy curtious and eager to help me even though in the beginning I was just asking questions & not buying anything they never tried to rush me off the phone & took the time to make sure I was taken care of to that I conclude I bought the right generator from the right place & couldn't be happier!!!

Transaction was smooth, generator shipped in 24 hours. Received the unit 10 days after that - which was fine (free shipping!). If you're in a hurry, though, consider paying extra for expedited delivery.

This generator exceeded all my expections. As a short-term home backup, it's a perfect fit for my needs. Started and ran smoothly, powered all of the circuits I need in an emergency - and then some. Unbelievably quiet in operation, easy on the gas, and easy to operate and maintain. Backed by a 3-year warranty, I expect to get many years of service beyond that. It is a Honda, after all.

Best 3000 watt generator you can buy!Review by David
Value

Purchased for $1770 in October 2005 from Wise. Arrived a to S FL in 3 days, fast. I love this EU300is honda unit. Bought a movers cart at Harbor Freight for $10 to set/store it on for easy moving on concrete surface, wheel kit is over priced at $100 for my needs, Had to replace the battery for $40 about 2 years age because I did not trickle charge or run it for a couple years, my fault. Just test ran it for 30 minutes and it started up on the electric start. Really do not even need the battery because it pull starts so easy. It is very quiet, fuel efficient, well designed and reliable. It is designed to run on 86 octane or higher gas with up to 10% ethanol, I use fuel stabilizer and keep it full of fuel all the time. It just ran great with one+ year old fuel in the tank. I will replace this fuel at the end of hurricane season in Nov. if it is not used up by then. Yes, it is an expensive generator but it is worth it and holds its value, used ones like my 8 year old unit will sell for about what I paid for it new on 2005. All generators should be run under a load for about 20 minutes every month or two. I will try to get better about doing the exercise runs. (Posted on 7/26/13)

I purchased this generator (quiet & reliable) as I experienced Hurricane Ike is 2008 and was without power for 8 days. All we heard for the 8 days were very loud generators, running all day and night. This generator is quiet, electric start and nothing but pure quality. There is always the concern of buying something on line but these guys at Wise are top notch, quick to respond to any questions, knowledgable about the products and a real pleasure to do business with. Whether you need to manual start or the joy of a turn of key it is Honda quality and worth the extra money. Good luck but you will not be disappointed. (Posted on 7/3/13)

the generator ran perfectly for the first 2 days. After only 10 days of ownership the generator went to a local Honda dealer for troubleshooting. The dealer put it on a load tester and there is a problem with it. Not sure how long it will take and I would prefer a brand new one as opposed to getting it repaired. A new generator with approximately 25 hours on it should not be needing repair. All of the requirements and operating procedures were followed. I hesitate to give an evaluation at this time but I did want to say I hope they reach a decision soon. This generator is our sole source of power for our AC and I would hate to think I spent $2028 just to wait for repairs and be hot and miserable. For four years we have heard nothing but good things about this generator and I think we possibly received a lemon. Therefore, I rate this midway, giving Honda the benefit of the doubt.

I spent some time this spring dry camping, and used a smaller Honda generator for our power needs. The only problem i had was not being able to run our electric heater and relied on Propane. The smaller generator met most of our needs, but heating, and possibly the air conditioner this summer. The remote start on the new Eu300is is a great accessory, and the quietness of this generator is great, and i am looking forward to being able to meet all our power needs with this new generator in the future.

15 DAYS WITHOUT POWER DURING HURICANE SANDYReview by Richard
Value

I lost power on 10/29/12 during Hurricane Sandy. I bought the Honda Eu3000is generator, after Hurricane Irene, and had the electrcians hardwire it to my house, to run my Furnace, refrigerator, clothes washing machine, as well as microwave oven, coffee maker, as well as lights. My generator, performed 24/7 with out any trouble,for 15 days, stopping only once to change the oil. At first I thought, how eccentric I've become, to spend so much money, or an item such as a generator that will hardly ever be used. Now I can tell you it was the best $3000 I spent, (cost includes price of hard wiring). The econo throtle, really did a great job on saving gasoline, that was very hard to get on Long Island at the time. Quiet! I would stand next to my running generator, and hear all of the other neighbors generators, and not hear mine! I swear it it more quiet than a room air conditioner, or lawn mower. In my opinion, this is what you pay for. Ease of continuous operation, in difficult conditions. I am now in agreement with Govenor Cuomo, who predicts these storms will become more frequent, and severe. I sing the highest praise for this equipment, and my wife and I say we would not have been able to inhabit our home during this time, had we not had the generator. If you care at all about emergency defense, do not hesitate to go after this set up as I did. (Posted on 12/7/12)
An amazing generator that made Hurricane Sandy much more pleasantReview by Ward
Value
Quality
Like the other reviewers, I bought this generator knowing Hurricane Sandy might get us some headaches. Sure enough, we were without power for 6 days and this generator made it very pleasant !!

The pro's for this unit: it's small, quiet, started on the 1st or 2nd pull, and it ran 14+ hours (with economy) supporting my 2 refrigerators/gas furnace blower/laptops/FIOS/tv/few lights. In fact, it was so quiet that my neighbors didn't know I had a generator until the 3rd day. Also, since it's an inverter, all my computer equipment was very happy because the power was clean.

The only con I can see is that it's a little small. I'd like to let it run my whole house, but a 6500-8000 W generator would really be needed, so you have to plan on how you'd like to use it.

Having used 4 different generators in the last several years, I have to say that this, by far, my favorite.

And I just added the Honda 2-wheel kit on so it's very easy to move around. (Posted on 11/8/12)

I have two running with the parallel kit so 6kW total available, for furnace in winter fridge tv outlets lights. Again came through great with 21 hours out from Sandy. Super quiet, doesn't annoy everyone around, it's great starts in an instant after sitting around, I do run the bowl dry, use stabilizer, and do start it every few months and charge battery on Battery Tender, 3 years now, and they are flawless. Honda does make teh best small power equipment. Buy the good stuff, buy it once. My Honda mower is 25 years old! cuts perfect! (Posted on 11/3/12)
Hurricane SandyReview by Frank

I lost power 8pm the night Hurricane Sandy came ashore. I've been running the generator for the last 36 hours. I have been running two refrigerators, two computers (tower and laptop), running two TVs, and three light bulbs. Also, my gas furnace. I have had no issues at all. Just an amazing machine. If you want a generator to support general functions in your home at a good price - this is the generator for you. (Posted on 10/31/12)

I got this last year after the storm missed us in Brick NJ, I got a EU2000 and one from Lowes sold them both and ordered the EU3000is from Wise Sales, great price, very nice people to deal with fast shipping. Well it sat in my garage for a little over a year now I think just put gas and oil in it and stated it right up didn't even have to do the pull start. this baby is so quiet, now that frankenstorm is almost here can't wait to use it. Wise Sales has the best price around abd great customer service. (Posted on 10/29/12)

Best generator on the marketReview by Gary

I had an ETQ 3500 watt generator and it would not run my 13500 btu air conditioner on my camper. I sold it and bought a 3000is honda. I ordered it from Wisesales who was great to deal with and has the best prices. It was delivered on time with everything I ordered. It runs my air conditioner and the micowave at the same time. It is super quiet and very easy on gas. It is heavy but I ordered the wheel kit and just push it right up into the camper. It is well worth the money and I highly recomend it. (Posted on 7/31/12)

ONE FINE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT Review by SHORTY
Quality

I Thought I Would Put My 2 Cents In. . Honda Makes Some Of The Finest Equipment Out There. I Know From Experience. This Is My 3Rd Eu3000Is Generator. I Love Em. I Live Where There Is No Electricity.. I'Ve Tried Many Loud Ugly Generators, They All Worked But Thats About All. We Run Our Generators About 20 Hours A Day In The Summer And About 8 Hours A Day In The Winter. I Own A 1000 Watt, 2000 Watt And This Is My 3Rd 3000 Watt. Each Eu3000Is Generator Lasts Me About 4-5 Years With Proper Servicing.. And Care. They Are So Quiet, They Get Great Fuel Mileage, They Run And Run And Run And Run And Run And Run. I Know. I Wouldn'T Buy Anything Else. And For People Who Use Em For Camping Or Other Short Term Use Like Power Outages And Such, If You Use Them Within Its Guidelines, It'Ll Last You A Life Time. Be Sure To Either Drain The Fuel When Not In Use Or Use A Fuel Stabilizer Like Stabil Or Whatever. Good Luck, I Know They Cost A Pretty Chunk Of Change But When You Need Dependability You Just Found It. And, Like They Say, You Get What You Pay For. Eu3000Is Yes! Happy Shopping. (Posted on 2/22/12)

Fuel efficient. Ran a tank of fuel for two days. Quiet?? There were four Generacs around me. You couldn't hear a conversation from three doors away. The Honda is so quiet, you can talk in normal volume while standing next to it. Helped keep neighbor relations at a peaceful level. (Posted on 11/28/11)

Very quietReview by Fred D.
Quality
Value
Very well built, and EXTREMELY quiet! My ONLY gripes are:

Adding oil is not easy and Honda should supply a gauge to how much oil is needed on initial fill. The fill throat is shallow and goes from empty to overflowing in seconds...

Hour meter should be included as a standard on this machine for the price. The add on one that is recommended requires open heart surgery...so I opted not to install and disrupt the exceptional job Honda did in putting this generator together.

Worth ALMOST all the money....now with that said worth EVERY penny for the quietness. It is scary quiet!

In closing...dealing with Wise Sales has been AWESOME! Great experience.... (Posted on 9/21/11)

Recent first long time 14 hour power outage here in Jersey, this Honda came through, powered my fridge, lights and an outlet for tv , unplug tv plug in coffee pot, perfect! Glad I had it ready to go. also helped run neighbors pump to get water out of his basement, everyone remarked how QUIET! It is great. Terrific stuff, QUIET! Those $700 Home Depot or similar stuff are like running a cement mixer all day long. This is great. First time we had such a long power outage in over 24 years, with my recently purchased Honda I was READY. (Posted on 9/11/11)
A little pricy but an excellent, quiet , bulletproof generatorReview by Bob

Very Quiet, I especially like the Eco switch allowing the generator to run slower and quieter when demand is lower. This is an expensive generator for the wattage output but you can't beat it for it's quiet operation and dependability. I bought the remote start and the hour meter. Very high quality build. I highly recommend this generator (Posted on 9/2/11)
Can't beat the Honda EU3000isReview by Joseph

Bought my Honda EU3000is back in Sept. 07 for home backup and tailgating. We use a Gen-Tran transfer switch on the house to use Sump pump, Furnace, refrigerator, lights, tv and other items. We have used it during many Notre Dame football games tailgating, and we used it for 4 days straight to provide power to our home from Hurricane wind damage to our utility. It has never failed to start and is outstanding on gas. Ran almost 20 hours on a tank. You can't go wrong with Honda! and Wisesales.com did a great job with Shipping and follow up questions.
