What's in a name? The pros and cons of choosing Honda Generators

Looking for the best Honda Generators Australia has to offer? Before you commit to a generator powered by Honda, it might pay to check out some of the other generators out there.

There's no doubt that Honda Generators are up there with some of the best generator technology on the market. They offer exceptional reliability and fuel efficiency, whether you're a camper or a contractor, a builder/tradesman, farmer or homeowner.

But they're not the only generator on the market. Granted, if you're looking for a new generator, it can be daunting and time-consuming to wade through all the brands on offer, weighing up their pros and cons to find the one that best suits you. It's no wonder, then, that many people choose a name they know and can trust. A name that is known for its good quality engines. Opting for Honda Generators is the easy and safe option.

Compact, fuel-efficient Honda Generator models provide smooth and safe power for recreational, emergency and home use. All Honda Generators are characterised by the same fuel-efficient technology that is behind the company's reputation for unparalleled durability, quality and reliability.

But while Honda Generators provide a great many advantages (trust us - we've used them to power up all sorts of appliances over the years), they might not always be the best choice for your specific requirements.

The same benefits are provided by other brands, such as Yamaha, Subaru, Cromtech, Generac, Pramac and the Australian-made generators such as Powerlite, Gentech and Crommelins.

If it's silent power you're after, the Yamaha EF2400iS Inverter Generator is fitted with Yamaha's most technologically sophisticated muffler. Word around the campsites is, it's so quiet that you can have a conversation standing next to it and hardly realise it is running. Like Honda Generators, the EF2400iS features sophisticated inverter technology to deliver pure, stable energy that's even cleaner than electricity from the mains. Perfect for powering all your latest electronic equipment and gadgets at home and on your travels. This Yamaha 2400 watt generator recently topped the list of generators in Caravan & Motorhome on Tour's Massive Generator Comparison Test.

Cromtech Generators is a lesser-known brand that provides generator power across Australia, and has all the benefits of Honda Generators Australia needs, without the hefty price tag - they are fairly new to Australia, however Cromtech (backed by trusted Australian manufacturer Crommelins) has quickly established itself as one of the best value for money inverter generator options in the market: you could save yourself hundreds, perhaps even thousands of dollars, especially if you are only after a generator for infrequent use.

Like the Honda and Yamaha Generators, the Cromtech also features Inverter technology and is highly economical so you don't need to carry as much fuel to get the power you need.

Premium vs Budget Generator

Looking for a conventional brushless generator to withstand the pressure on worksites? Powerlite or Gentech Generators can fix you up. Need an AVR generator that is quiet and fuel-efficient for home power backup during blackouts? Pramac or Generac have the solution, including auto-start generator models. Want super quiet portable power? Yamaha Generators are the quietest on the market.

Like Honda, all of these quality brands have generator options to suit all situations - from 1000W lightweights right through to 15kVA workhorses. Take your pick. So if you're looking for a generator and are tempted to settle for the Honda, do your research first. You never know, you may find something far more suitable for your needs and situation.
