Customer Testimonials

"Hi there, just wanted to say thanks for getting us the generator we ordered in time for our camping getaway. Delivery time was fast as hoped. Can't wait to hit the open road with our caravan in tow. Thanks My Generator".

Your company was very efficient with the purchase and quick despatching to Kalgoorlie. They were very helpful with the delivery as we did not have an address in town and they dispatched it to the local courier company who assisted me with the package.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The Yamaha EF2000iS is the prized generator for your caravan, motorhome or camping trip. This model is held in the highest regard not only for its excellent quality, but for its super quiet operation and unmatched portability. This is the recommended camping generator by the My Generator Team, and it can be used for more than just recreational purposes. 

For its power output, it only produces noise levels in the order of 52 decibels thanks to the Yamaha Noise Block Sound Reduction System – this makes it the quietest generator in it class. No wonder countless grey nomads and camping/4WD enthusiasts swear by this model: at that noise level, you wouldn’t even know it was there!

It’s compact and sleek design make it extremely popular also: weighing in at only 20kg’s this is a similar size to many competitors’ unit that produce half the power output!

The inverter technology means that the power produced is pure and without fluctuation, making it ideal to run all your favourite electronic equipment such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets. Additionally, the Yamaha Smart Throttle automatically adjusts the engine speed in line with the required output, to maximise fuel efficiency.

This model also boasts the Yamaha Twin Tech capability to hook up to another EF2000iS and almost double the peak output capacity and provide a peak output of 3600 watts and continuous output of 3000 watts. Other features include low oil alert, electrical overload breaker and easy recoil start thanks to the auto-decompression system.

The package is complete with a four year warranty and backed by the national Yamaha service network with over 200 accredited service agents. So, for you next road trip, if you want to power your camping fridge, TV, low-wattage kettles, lights or if you also want to charge your Battery Packs, the Yamaha EF2000iS is the best in class choice! 

Furthermore, as with most models in the Yamaha range, this unit can be used for multiple applications. Yes, it is the number 1 recreational generator, but many customers also choose this model to run their fridge, lights and TV etc. in the event of a power outage at home. We have also sold this generator to many small business customers, including mobile cleaning businesses, food vans, market stalls and contractors on the go.

It's Yamaha's versatility, silent operation and reliability which make it the premium inverter generator choice.   

FEATURES AT A GLANCE

  • Twin-Tech Capability enabling you to connect two EF2000iS’ to alomst double maxiumum output and provide 3000 watts of continuous power (peak ~3600w).

This is my first experience with generators and was at a bit of a loss with what to buy. After reviewing information on lots of websites I settled on the Yamaha EF2000Is. Unit performed above expectations - easy to use, reliable and so quiet! I have no regrets about buying this generator and would recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a generator of this output.

Great website with heaps of really useful information to make my buying decision. Easy to navigate and when it came to the purchase there were no issues experienced.

Product Review

Great unit, I did a lot of research, (as I do) before deciding on this particular Yamaha Genny.
Money well spent, and am confident that I have a quality piece of equipment that should serve my needs for a long time without letting me down. So far living up to expectations.
The lower operating noise level of this machine was important and one of the deciding factors as I am mindful of other people's comfort and their desire for peace and quiet. In my opinion one of the most important considerations when buying and using a generator.

First portable generator, so can't make comparison to others in this product niche. Quiet enough while not being pressured. Running a pod coffee machine (1200w) certainly brings up the noise level. Not intrusive, just a bit too loud for an early morning chino in a caravan park environment.

Product Review

My husband thought it was was the best birthday present. We used it the first time camping to run a 70L fridge, it was so quiet, you forgot it was even on after a while and it didn't effect the camp atmosphere at all. It is easy to transport and for a small female, I find it very easy to carry and start. When we are not using it camping it gets used on the farm all the time. So much easier than lugging the welding generator for just a small job. Very happy with it.

Shopping Experience

I was in a hurry for it as we were going camping, so rang mygenerator, they put it on the truck that same day, it arrived the next day, just in time for a camp weekend and my husbands birthday. Great website with a lot of infomation, great customer service and a great price as well.

Product Review

We purchased the Yamaha for recharging a deep cycle battery for our camping trailer. I particularly like the fuel shut off valve. Very handy for carrying the generator in a car. For the people considering Honda, I'd recommend the Yamaha, as I really think it's a superior product. Also received a useful cover and lock in the package. These have proven to be quite handy.

Shopping Experience

The product arrived in Brisbane within roughly a day of placing the order. All delivered as requested. Called MyGenerator a few weeks after purchasing to ask a question relating to use and received useful advice. Buyers can certainly feel confident that the owners of the company will be there for any usage support. Would be pleased to use the company again.

Only one suggestion would be to have an article online to show people how to charge a deep cycle battery using the generator with a battery charger. Maybe also think about selling battery charges on your site. We have found CTEK battery chargers to be very high quality and particularly the M300 model. These could help people purchasing a generator for camping who need to learn about how everything works together. Only a suggestion at any rate!!

Product Review

Hi, I read many reviews before buying my Yamaha 2000 watt generator and felt very comfortable with what i was reading.
Since receiving my generator which was delivered very quickly, i have had no issues with it. i did make a phone call to My Generator regarding exactly which oil to put in the generator before first use, but once again the answer was there for me.

Shopping Experience

As far as internet sellers go, My Generator would have to be the most accessible by phone, the most unbiased and helpful in product recommendation and also after sales service. I have proudly recommended My Generator to people who hire my boat and also friends and family. It was noted to me also that my friend had purchased the same generator and paid quite a bit more for it. For anyone that reads this, please just go ahead and order your product from this well organised and service orientated business.
Kind Regards - Andrew Thirkettle.

We could have bought a cheaper brand of mobile inverter generator, but on reading all the product details and specifications (which were set out clearly to read) the Yamaha EF 2000iS generator was the best and most appropriate for our needs. It is also extremely quiet for a generator of this size, and an extra bonus is the four year nation wide warranty.
We cannot fault this generator, and would highly recommend this product.

I have only had the need to use my new Yamaha Generator on two occasions so far as I have three solar panels. However the Sun doesn't shine all the time. We left Inskip point and had the three way fridge on 12v until Gympie, where we did some shopping. When we pulled up for the night, I noticed my phone which had been on charge since Inskip point still wasn't fully charged. Flat house battery and it had been raining on overcast all day. Out with the Yamaha, I must say how I am impressed with the noise level as we had it under the awning as it was still raining. A lot quieter than my previous Generator which was supposed to be the same decibels. The Yamaha was a lot easier to start as well, as It only took two pulls from an empty carburettor. Cheers Trevor Jones

When I ordered it they told me that they had sold out because of the storms, and the next shipment would be in next the next month, gave me a date to expect it and it arrived one day late. Pretty good from ordering it five weeks previously. Cheers Trevor Jones

The generator is compact, very well made and extremely quiet to others I have heard and used. The old saying of you get what you pay for is very true with this brand and would not hesitate recommending it to others. I read the instructions, put the oil and fuel in it and it started effortlessly first go, thats what I want and expect for the money I paid and was not disappointed.

Worked well when I needed it Review by Ian , Coal Point NSW

Product Review

Bought this generator to cope with power outage in the aftermath of the storms (April 2015). Seems like a nice, well made machine - took about half an hour for initial oil & fuel fill, reading instructions etc then it started easily and ran faultlessly non stop for about 14 hours a day for 3 days. Noise is modest - I believe it is one of the quietest around - slightly more than I expected but this is my first generator so I have no yardstick to compare. I was able to set it up about 20m from the house and at that distance was unaware of it, unless I specifically listen for it. Fuel consumption was about as expected - used about 15 - 20 L over approx 40 hours running, with connected load usually between half and full (3 fridges/freezers, various lights, lots of chargers....). Note that rating is actually 1.6kW. I now need to empty/prep it for long term (I hope!) storage - or maybe I'll just run it once in a while...

Shopping Experience

Very fast, friendly and helpful service from MyGenerator, who had it shipped within a few hours of ordering (and not their fault the shipper's local office was also closed due to power outages!)

Product Review

First I must say I did not buy this generator from MyGenerator. I bought it some 3 years ago as an emergency generator at the Sydney Caravan and Camping show. I paid somewhat more than the price on MyGenerator. During the recent power outage in Sydney I fired it up for the first time. It started 2nd pull and ran flawlessly powering 2 fridges, some lights and my CPAP (medical device) all night and was still going strong the next day on its first tank. I like being able to run these small engines dry and a fuel gauge is a big plus. Note that I will be draining the fuel tank to avoid stale fuel problems.
I have just ordered a new caravan and will be taking the generator with me when free camping. I will need a second generator and connection kit to run the aircon in summer but that will be cheaper than purchasing a larger unit. I think there will be no problem with the park rangers as my exemption due to medical needs and the quietness of the machine should keep everyone happy.
The only comment I would otherwise make for anyone considering adding an auxiliary fuel tank via a replacement fuel cap is that the fuel supply on the Yamaha is gravity fed as opposed to the pump on the Honda. This would make it an unlikely add on for Yamaha owners.

Sadly I have not had the pleasure yet so can't comment though I will add a review after I purchase my 2nd unit and connection kit.

Excellent value for the outlay Review by Dean Clipstone , Ridge Haven South Australia

Product Review

I spent considerable time evaluating the available generators on the market.
I decided the benefits of purchasing a Yamaha EF2000iS were very clear by comparison.
In fact I convinced my travelling partner to buy one just minutes before he bought another brand. It does every thing I expected and even easier than I imagined. It runs the Coleman Mach, on my Jayco Expanda, on cooling cycle, easily, noting that the revs to operate it are well below full revs. I was very pleasantly surprised, because it ran flat out on the heat cycle. I do not use the heat cycle.

Shopping Experience

From the first contact until the first pull on the start cord.....brilliant. I had a small hiccup with the freight company but that does NOT reflect on Steve. I wonder how Steve manages to talk to ALL his customers, because that's the way it appeared to me. Good "old fashioned" Customer Service. You cannot beat it. Experience it, you will NOT be disappointed.

Despite the product working perfectly, it sadly does not produce enough power for my air-con unit and cuts out when I start it up... genny comfortably runs my fridges, lights and fan but not the main thing I needed it for. Will now have to buy another bigger toy for the shed! I'd advise to check the specifics before buying rather than go on word of mouth - I now know that my Dimplex portable air-con requires 3000 watts to get going.

The purchase of the Yamaha Genset has been the easiest purchase I have had ever. I work overseas and wanted to purchase before I arrived home. I sent an email to Steve requesting some information eg, freight, availability and assistance with the $ exchange. I was so suprised of the timely response to my emails and the flexability of the company. Before I knew it, I was informing the wife that we have purchased the new generator and expect delivery around this date.
I have reccommended My Generator company to my friends and have expressed to them that if I was to ever purchase another one, it will be through Steve at My Generators. Very impressed.

Took a lot of research to determine what product would best suit my needs, which is primarily travelling with our Caravan. The research finally came down to two Brands which are both renowned for their quietness and reliability. I went with the Yamaha due to it having a fuel gauge, which is good if you are using the generator for any length of time, and also it came with the DC leads.

Had a week camping in the forest in WA's South West. The 200w solar panel was useless. I set up the new Yammy very uncertainly, (a lot of people hate generators) It was wonderful. I placed it next to the wheels. It purred away quietly for two hours using a 15amp 4 stage charger and giving us enough power to run the Danfoss fridge, lights and DVD player all evening and through til the next day. What a difference to my previous 1kva machine. I have used it twice since and it is still on the first tank -very economical. The eco throttle kept the revs right down for peace and low running costs.

Yamaha 2000w powers my 1300w Jack Hammer efficiently Review by Ken Walker , Unanderra NSW
Quality

Product Review

I own a small Temporary Fencing Business. We frequently need the use of a Jack Hammer. We were using a 5kw Generator but it reduced the space on the truck for Fence Panels. I came across the Yamaha 2kw generator its size allowed us to store it out of sight and power is sufficient to power the Jack Hammer for our use. It is quiet and compact.
The only 2 down sides are that there is no RCD fitted ( you must have an earth stake) and the knobs/switches pertrude beyond the casing so could be damaged in transit.
In saying this though I am more than happy with the Yamaha 2000 it is quiet, economical and compact ideal for a lot of uses.

I bought this genny after using a Honda for over 3 years, and I must say that since using the Ef2000is the Yamaha is much better than my old Honda.

This is a big advantage over the Honda. The Yamaha also has a fuel gauge which is handy. Really happy with the Yamaha 2000w.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • G'Day - which 2000w genny is better, the Honda or the Yamaha?

    Hi and thanks for visiting our My Generator site: both the Honda and Yamaha 2000w inverter generators are great products and they both come with 4 year warranties and national approved service networks. However, when it comes to splitting the two units and comparing the specs, Yamaha just comes out on top as being slightly lighter, quieter and more fuel efficient. For more details you can check out our article for an in-depth comparison: Yamaha vs Honda 2000w generator.

    It’s also worth noting that the Yamaha comes with 12V DC cables as standard, whereas the Honda doesn’t, and the Yamaha has a fuel shut off valvle enabling you to drain the residual fuel from the carburettor, which again, the Honda model does not have. 

    How much this was helpful

  • I just ordered the Yamaha 2000 generator. What type of oil do you recommend? Can I buy the oil anywhere?

    Hi and thank you for your order. The oil you require is 10W-30 or 10W-40 as per the product manual. This can be purchased at any service station. Enjoy the new purchase! :)

    How much this was helpful

  • Sean, can you connect two of the EF2000iS generators and make a 4000 watt generator?

    Yes you can. The Parallel Kit is an optional extra and with it you can connect two of the Yamaha EF2000iS units to almost double the power output at peak, and provide 3000 watts of continuous power. Look for the kit under the Accessories list on the Yamaha EF2000iS product page. Thanks

    How much this was helpful

  • Can I use the Yamaha EF2000iS to provide temporary portable power to my home refrigerator or freezer in an emergency and to run some lights? If not, what is the best portable generator that can?

    Hi Greg - the Yamaha EF2000iS is very suited to running the appliances you have listed. It is our most popular inverter generator and used by many of our customers for backup power, as well as recreation or small business requirements. To be certain this model has the capacity to run your fridge, freezer and lights, you first need to know the exact wattage required to run your appliances (both starting and running wattages), this can be found on the product data plate or within the product manual. This will help you determine whether a 2000 watt generator will be suitable for your needs.

    Once you have the wattage information for your appliances, we recommend you follow our simple step by step buyers guide which will help you find the right size generator for your appliances.

    How much this was helpful

  • I am interested in the Yamaha 2000 watt, but wondering if there is an option to fit a larger fuel tank, to extend the run time?

    Thanks for your question; The manufacturers do not recommend any extended fuel tank be fitted to their generators, as doing this would void the warranty. Addtionally, for this type of inverter generator, it is recommended that after running a full tank of fuel, the generator should be shutdown to cool briefly, then oil checked/added if required before running again. 

     As an alternative inverter generator which provides longer run time, you can check out the Yamaha EF2800I  which has a run time of 17hours at quarter load. 

    How much this was helpful

  • Hello Sean,Thinking about buying a 2000w Inverter Generator as I’m about to build a shack on our bush block. It would need to run a concrete mixer, power saw, drill and maybe a couple of other things.

    Hi Joe, the most important thing you need to know is the exact starting and running wattage requirements of your tools/appliances. This information can be found on the product data plate or within the product manual. Once you have this information, you can determine what size generator you need to run your appliances.

    We would recommend that you refer to our Generator Buyers Guide which provides a simple step by step guide to help you chose the right size generator for all your appliances.

    The Yamaha EF2000iS is a great little generator and while most of customers use it for recreational purposes, many happy customers also use it for smaller to medium tools as well. Again, it just depends how much your tools draw and how many of them you want to run at the same time - find out that information, follow our Buyer's Guide and you'll be sure to get the right sized genset!

    G'Day - we ship our products all around the country every day, so delivery to Devonport isn’t a problem. For this unit, we hold stock in our warehouse in Western Sydney, so we would advise to allow approx. 4-5 business days from the day of order/payment to your address in Devonport, Tas.

  • Hey, I am looking for a generator to run some 150w LED flood lights. They will be used to light up a playing field outdoors. I am looking for the quietest solution. How many lights could a Yamaha 2000 power? Would this generator be the best option?
    Hi Sam - The Yamaha 2000w generator has a rated or continuous output of 1600w (with a max of 2000w). This means it could run 10 x 150w lights continuously. Yamaha generators are the quietest in their class and come backed with a 4 year domestic warranty + over 200 approved service agents across the country. 
     
    Obvisouly if you want to run more lights, you will need to get a bigger generator with more capacity. You can check out the full Yamaha Range, which has models up to 6300 watts max.

  • Will this generator be enough to run my camping equipment? I have a fridge, lights battery charger and perhaps will have some other small appliances like phone and laptop.

    G'Day - these are very common appliances for camping and usually a 2000 watt inverter generator will be fine...however, just to be sure, you need to determine the amount of power required to not only run the appliances you wish to use, but also the power required to start them (particularly for appliances like fridges with a motor). For many appliances, the starting output requirement can be up to three times (or more) greater than the continuous running power needed. The exact starting and running wattage for your appliances can be found within the product manual or on the appliance data plate. We have a simple step by step guide to take you through what size generator you need right here: http://www.mygenerator.com.au/generators-buyers-guide/  Take a look at guide and just to be certain you can determine whether 2000 watts will be enough to run all your camping appliances. 

    Lastly, both 1000watt and 2000watt generator models are very popular and suitable for charging your camping battery packs, however just me sure to use a battery charger between the generator and your battery packs, as this will appropriately regulate the charge.

    Thanks.

  • Will this 2000w model run my 240v/ 40amp DC battery charger plus a 50 Waeco liter fridge? thanks

    Hi - a 2000 watt generator is very likely to be enough to charge your batteries via your charger, particularly if you are talking about battery packs for camping/recreation; just double check the specs on your particular battery system to see what the required draw is. This model generator is very popular for recharging battery packs for caravan/motorhome/camping uses. We also recommend that you use a battery charger between the generator and your battery packs to ensure regulated charging.

    A 50L Waeco fridge will draw less than 100 watts so the generator will have no problems keeping your fridge running. Cheers!

  • I have a caravan with an Air Command Ibis 3 air conditioning unit. The manual indicates the Power Input as 1300W for cooling and 1210W for heating. It states the Rated Capacity as 3100W for cooling and 2700W for heating. Would the Yamaha 2000w do the job?

    Hi, and thanks for your question. The information in the manual is usually not enough - we advise that you contact Ibis Air Command and speak to their technical department about your particular a/c model. They will know what size generator you need as they have tested all the Air Command a/c models against the leading generator brands. 

    In our experience, most (but not all) caravan a/c units will require a generator that can deliver more than 2000 watts at peak, such as the Yamaha EF2400iS - this is the number 1 choice for running Caravan Air Con units and I would say this would be what you need for the Ibis 3 A/C. For a bit more power if required, you can opt for the Yamaha EF2800i. Thanks

  • Hello, I need to run 2 wet vaccum cleaners: both require 8 amps max draw, then 4.5 amps running. Also I want to run a steamer which says it takes 1500 watts to start. I thinking of getting this generator my mobile detailing business.

    G'Day Serge - using the simple formula of: Starting Amps x Volts = Watts, means that your 8amp vaccum cleaners at 240volts will draw 1920 watts at start up, and then drop to 1080 watts running. So if you were to use your vaccums or your steamer one appliance at a time, then this generator would be fine.

    However, if you wanted to use both vaccums at once, or with the steamer as well, you would need a larger generator. If this was the case and you still required an inverter generator, then another option would be the Yamaha EF6300iS, which is a popular model for mobile business uses requiring multiple appliances running at once.

  • We are in the process of buying a 2010 Winnebago Esperance. Which inverter generator do you think would be best for us. I'm considering the Yamaha EF2000IS. We live in Tasmania but will be travelling to the mainland next year.
    I'd recommend a Yamaha generator. Yamaha generators come backed with a 4 year manufacturer warranty and have over 200 approved service agents around the country.
     
    The next step is to find out what size you require. This depends on the number and type of appliances you intend to run off the generator. Most RV and caravan owners run the majority of appliances off their auxiliary batteries while stationary. When the batteries run low you can charge them back up using the generator and a battery charger. The Yamaha EF2000IS is very popular for this.
     
    If you intend to run appliances that draw a lot more power (especially at start up) like air conditioners, microwaves, kettles or toasters, then you might need a generator with a larger power output. Perhaps the Yamaha EF2400iS which is great for running caravan air-con units. For even more power, the next step up is the Yamaha EF2800i which has extended run time.
     
    We have a guide that shows you how to calculate the wattage for different appliances here: http://www.mygenerator.com.au/generators-buyers-guide/

  • I am looking at the Yamaha 2kw to power a 1.6kw Window Air conditioner on a boat. Will the Yamaha run it?

    If 1.6kw is the load required at peak to start the A/C, then this Yamaha generator will be fine to run it. Just be sure to check that this is in fact the peak load - you can sometimes find this information on the A/C data plate or within the product manual, but often you'll need to contact the A/C manufacturer, speak to their technical dept. and they can tell you how much power at start up your particular A/C model will require.

    The Yamaha EF2000iS inverter generator is suitable for some smaller sized A/C units in boats, caravans and motorhomes. But for many caravan/boating A/C units, the peak wattage requirement is more than 2000 watts - therefore the Yamaha 2400 inverter generator model is the most popular for Air Conditioners: the larger engine and greater output in the Yamaha 2400 generator suits most caravan A/C units on the market.

  • G'Day, is there a way to shut off the petrol supply so I can run the carborator dry? Have had issues with this in the past on different gensets.

    Hi and thanks for your question - the Yamaha range has a a fuel shut off switch which is independent to the on/off knob. This means that you can turn off the fuel line when the unit is still in operation, enabling you to use up the remaining fuel from the carburettor. Very helpful if you intend to store the generator away for a while before using again.

  • What is an "inverter" generator?

    Hi Alison, and thanks for your question. An inverter is a lightweight microprocessor that converts power from direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). They are a fairly recent advancement in technology from the older style conventional generators. What it means is that the inverter generators produce very clean power which is required to run sensitive electronic equipment such as laptops, mobile phones, camera equipment etc. 

    The other benefits of inverter generators are that they are typically much smaller and lighter than standard open frame style generators and tend to operate at very low noise levels (less than 60 decibels). Lastly, they are also very efficient; their engine speed automatically adjusts in accordance with the required load, maximising fuel efficiency. 

    Overall, they are an extremely popular portable power source for camping, caravanning, DIY tasks, small business uses and home power back up. Inverter generators range from around 800 watts up to 6300 watts.

  • Good morning, Karen here from Semaphore Caravan Pk Adelaide SA. We are getting ready for our trip around Australia. We would like to know what size Yamaha Generator would best suit us? We have solar panel set up, duel battery among other things.

    Hi Karen, to be sure you get the right generator for your Caravan trip, its best to know in a bit more detail exactly what you intend to be running. If you just want the generator as backup option to charge your batteries and a few other small appliances then the most popular generator models are the Yamaha EF1000iS and the Yamaha EF2000iS.

    However, if you also want a generator to run appliances with a larger draw such as a Caravan air-conditioner, a microwave, a washing machine, a standard kettle etc. etc. then you may need a larger generator such as the Yamaha EF2400iS, the Yamaha EF2800i or the Yamaha EF3000iSE. In this instance you would need to know the exact starting and running wattages of these larger appliances to ensure you get the right sized generator for the particular make/model of appliances you have. The starting wattage of these appliances is the most important number to obtain. You can do this by checking the product manual or contacting the manufacturer of the appliance (we find this is the safest/most effective approach). 

    I hope that helps - if you still need help, please feel free to give us a call on 1300 400 122! Thanks.

  • Is there a way to shut off the petrol supply so I can run the carburetor dry?

    Yes, all the Yamaha generators have a fuel valve shutoff (petcock) allowing you to switch off the fuel whilst the generator is operating so the remaining fuel in the carburetor runs dry.

    This feature is especially popular if you intend to store your generator in a car, as the petrol fumes ill not permeate through the vehicle thanks to the shutoff valve.

  • Hi there, I'm considering a Yamaha, but have noticed several other 'generic' generator brands for around a third of the price and offer similar specs. What's driving the price difference?

    Great question Craig, thank you! Some lesser known brands have their place, really only for people who will use their generator infrequently - in which case you can save some money. Then there are also many cheap brands out there that are a good chance to break down on your first starting attempt!

    With Yamaha, firstly - their specs are superior; not only are they the quietest and lightest inverter generators in the market, they are also built to handle more intensive, frequent operation. So with a Yamaha, you know it is going to handle your power demands easily and you can use your unit for multiple applications if required; recreation, home power backup, small business, events etc. It is the premium inverter generator brand in the market.

    Secondly, with a Yamaha you get a 4 year warranty (which is much longer than the cheap brands) and you get the support of over 200 accredited service agents around the country. Our experience is that the Yamaha after sales support, servicing and parts support is excellent. You dont get a national service network with the cheap brands. 

    Hope that help explains the price difference, cheers, Steve!

  • Can I charge my battery pack from the generator?

    Hi Adam, and thanks for your question; in short, yes you can. The Yamaha EF2000iS and EF1000iS units come with DC outlets and 12V charging cables and are popular models to charge battery packs. However, it is strongly recommended that you use a battery charger to charge your battery pack - the DC charge from the generator is not regulated, and so it is much safer and effective to connect a battery charger to your generator, and then the charger to your battery pack to charge up. 

    The charging cables can be used directly to provide a small trickle for a short period of time in situations such as needing to start a car battery...but once again, for charging your battery packs, ensure you connect a suitable battery charger between the generator and your batteries.

  • I am buying a Yamaha Inverter Generator from you. If I plan to not run it for a period of 4-5 months, so should I just use a fuel stabilizer?

    Yes, a good fuel stabiliser will keep your fuel fresh during periods when you are not using your generator and in your case this should be fine.

    Other good practice recommendations are:

    • Drain the excess fuel in the carburetor after use. All Yamaha generators have a fuel shut off valve (petcock) that you can switch off while the generator is running to use the residual fuel and ensure it does not sit in the carburetor
    • Start up your generator every few months for a short period to lubricate internal parts of the unit and even apply a small load to the generator ensure everything is in working order for when you need it next.

  • Looking at buying a new caravan, and generator. Never had a geni before. A number of caravan vendors have suggested buying a geni larger than the 2kVA as the new air cons can require more than 2kVA, I would appreciate your advice on this?

    Hi there - yes, this is a very common question. The best generator for Caravan Air Conditioners is the Yamaha EF2400iS - it will handle the start up load of Caravan Air Conditioner units. 

    As you mention, most Caravan Air Con units will require more than 2kVA at start up. Some 2kVA generators will run some Caravan Air Con units, however we find that when the outside temperature increases, 2kVA generators will struggle with the Air Con start up loads (as every generator loses power capacity in hotter temps). 

    So, for caravan Air Con units, we recommend the Yamaha EF2400iS

  • Hi, Can the Yamaha 2000w generator power a desktop PC? If yes, then; A) How many desktop can it run? (Note-these PCs will share 1 monitor). B) How long will the power last to run x number of PCs? C) Once the generator runs out, what is the next solution?

    Hi - firstly, yes the Yamaha EF2400iS can power a desktop PC. It is an 'inverter generator' meaning it provides pure sine wave power; this is a clean type of power that is suitable to run sensitive electronic equipment, like your PC and monitor.  

    The Yamaha EF2400iS provides a continuous power output of 2000 watts. So it depends on how much power your particular PC’s draw. A standard PC will only draw around a few hundred watts (give or take) – so once you find out how much your particular PC models draw, then you will know how many you can run at any one time from the Yamaha EF24000iS.

    For your type of requirement, you may want to look at a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) device - it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries. A backup generator can then provide power to the UPS after the UPS runs out of its initial power. Sizing and type of generator to backup a UPS would best be advised by an electrician, who would insall the UPS.

  • Please clarify if the DC charger facility can be used at the same time as the 240AC is being used? The manual is a little confusing regarding this.

    Hi - yes, simultaneous use of the AC and DC power is possible, but wattage should not exceed the rated output. 

    It should also be noted that the DC charge from the generator is not regulated and is mostly designed for 'just in case' situations, i.e. your flat car battery needs a short trickle charge. For full charging of your batteries, you should always use a quality battery charger which connects between the AC output on the generator and your batteries - this will ensure safe and efficient charging of your batteries.  

    Thanks.

  • Will this generator run the pump for my house water system?

    Hi, that is a tough question to answer without knowing more details about your pump. Water pumps come in a range of sizes and some smaller pumps can run on a small 2000 watt generator, whereas some house pumps would need around 6000 – 8000 watts or more!...electric pumps are notorious for having quite high starting loads. So, you would need to find out the peak load (in Watts) required to start your pump. If you cannot find the starting load from the product manual or data plate, you could contact the manufacturer of your pump, or engage an electrician to take a reading.

    Once you have that all important stating load amount for your pump, you can then choose the right sized generator to run your pump.

  • I plan to leave the generator outside my long term camp setup, what’s your best inverter generator that can handle all weather conditions, especially heavy rain?

    Hi there, sounds like a nice set up! The short answer is that electricity and water don’t mix. Whilst we are aware that some people run their inverter gensets in all weather conditions, it is not recommended as safe or best practice for your equipment, as inverter generators do not come with weatherproof outlets as standard.

    Ideally, you would somehow shelter your generator from the rain. But just remember that fully enclosing your generator whilst its running is not an option - generators need fresh air intake for the engine to run and they emit carbon dioxide, so they should never be contained. Overall, some rain protection but also room for fresh air intake and fume emission is what you need.
