When it comes to Honda generators prices are often much higher than their 'no name' equivalents. So are you just paying more for the name? Or is a Honda generator a guarantee of quality that other manufacturers simply cannot match.

Whichever camp you fall into, it's a fact that you can find top quality generators on the market to suit every budget. Some, such as the Powerlite Generators for trade and farm use, are even powered by Honda meaning you get the double benefits of a top-notch Honda engine and the highest Australian manufacturing and quality standards. This goes for other brands such as Gentech, Dunlite and Advanced Power.

This is far more than you get from other Chinese-made generators, like Lectron, Fuji and other cheap brands sold on eBay.

Yamaha EF6300iSE

We're quietly impressed with the EF6300iSE. The way it effortlessly cranks out up to 6300 watts of pure sine wave inverter power at 230 volts to confidently run high-demand items like pumps, as well as sensitive equipment like laptops and computers, wherever you need power. The advanced features such as a single touch electric start and an economy mode to give better fuel efficiency. Not forgetting the automotive low oil shutoff feature that automatically protects the engine from low oil damage, hour meter to automatically track the maintenance and handy fuel gauge. And even though it produces a hefty 6300 watts, the engine is super quiet allowing you to have a conversation in normal voices just metres away. Complete with a four-year warranty, whichever way you look at it, the EF6300iSE is worth every last cent. Also worth noting its more than 20 kilos lighter than its Honda equivalent!
