Honda Generators Australia | My Generator

When you’re in the market for a new generator, weighing up the pros and cons of every model takes time and effort. That’s why many Australians play it safe and choose a brand name they know and trust: Honda.

Honda inverter generators are renowned for being compact, fuel-efficient, stable and reliable, no matter whether you need power at home, or on the go for your RV or mobile business. Honda Trade Generator sets are the leaders for portable power work requirements on constructions sites, farms, civil engineering projects and more... they are built tough and can handle regular commercial-grade demands. The portable Honda Trade Generators we stock are assembled in Australia by manufacturers such as Gentech, Dunlite, Powerlite, Crommelins and Genelite:



The Honda Generator advantages are also offered by many other generator brands. Brands that, when it comes to the crunch, may be better suited to your individual power requirements and budget…so before you follow the crowd and go with say a Honda eu20i or Honda eu2000i, we suggest you check out these other popular options:

For Super Quiet, Stable Power

You’ll struggle to find a quieter unit than the Yamaha EF2400iS inverter generator. Fitted with Yamaha’s most technologically sophisticated muffler, it is so quiet that the manufacturers say you can have a conversation next to it and hardly realise it is running. The EF2400iS also features inverter technology for pure, stable energy that’s even cleaner than mains electricity and can be used to safely power your digital gadgets and power tools. The Yamaha generators are considered at the premium end of the market and are comparable in pricing to the Honda models.

For Portable Power

Honda generators might have uber-portable designs but the Briggs & Stratton Inverter Series certainly gives them a run for their money. Contained in a neat suitcase-style package, they are amongst the most powerful, compact generators in the recreational range, without sacrificing size, weight, noise and fuel economy. Briggs & Stratton generators have the benefit of a national service network and are a good choice for customers wanting a slightly cheaper option than the Honda or Yamaha ranges. 

For Economical Power

They may be a lesser-known brands, but Cromtech and SupaSwift all produce inverter generator models around one-third of the price of the Honda generators, without compromising on quality or features. In fact, using Cromtech Outback 2400w inverter generator model as the example, it is quite the opposite: the Cromtech Outback inverter generator produces more maximum and running output that is capable of running a caravan air-con unit, which is often beyond the Honda EU20i equivalent…furthermore the Cromtech Outback is a similar weight to the Honda EU20i - so overall, you are getting more power with the Cromtech, for far less money and not compromising on weight.

Similarly, the SupaSwift 3600w Inverter Generator offers an excellent power to weight ratio. Once again, these options are available at a fraction of the Honda prices.  This is a newer option than the Cromtech, but is also starting to become popular as people see the benefit of opting for a reputable budget brand - you can get very much the same type of product specs, and yet not pay nearly as much as the Honda premium. With the right budget brand (e.g. Cromtech), you also get national service agent and spare parts support with your Cromtech Generator. 

On a pure like for like basis, the Cromtech Outback 2400w Inverter Generator is very much in the same mold as the Honda eu20i and Honda eu2000i, yet again it retails much lower than the Honda’s at under $1,000. The Cromtech range comes with a 1-year Australian warranty and has proved particularly popular among Caravan, 4WD and outdoor adventure enthusiasts, as well as people requiring small home back up power. Overall, the right budget generator option is an excellent choice for those people who only intend to use their generator infrequently (i.e. a few times a month).      

The numbers speak for themselves – if it’s quality and value for money you’re after for your generator, do your research within our Recreational and Domestic inverter generator ranges and consider some great alternatives to the Honda inverter range.
