Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • 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: https://www.mygenerator.com.au/generators-buyers-guide/
     
    Regards,
     
    Steve
  • Hello, looking for a reliable generator with invertor...its for camping, needs to be quiet. Would be good if you can recommend?
    Hi Graeme, we'd recommend a Yamaha Inverter Generator if you are looking for a reliable, good quality inverter generator, 4 year warranty and with nationwide service agent support. Yamaha are the lightest and quietest inverter generators in the market and extremely popular for camping/camper trailers/caravans.
     
    The size of the generator would depend on the type/qty of appliances you intend to run off it. You'll need to know how much power your appliances draw to make sure you get the right size, but as a guide the following will help you:
     
    Yamaha 1000w Generator: ultra light, very popular for charging camping battery packs via a battery charger and for running a few small appliances; laptop, phone, TV, lights, small fridge etc.
    Yamaha 2000w Generator: extremely fuel efficient, also great for charging battery packs and running a few more appliances or items with greater draw such as fridges or smaller air-conditioners.
    Yamaha 2200w Generator: the latest and greatest from Yamaha. New features include: Boost feature (overload capability), light weight (25kg), Tri-Handle Design and Toolless Panel for ease of maintaining.
    Yamaha 2400w Generator: the most popular unit for caravans as it will run caravan a/c units. Rated as the Top Caravan Generator by Caravan & Motorhome on Tour Magazine
     
  • 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.
     
    Cheers!
  • With the TwinTech option, are both generators required to be the exact same? For example two EF2400iS?

    Yes,

    You can connect two 2000W Yamaha Inverter Generators and increase the peak output to 3600 watts and continuous output of 3000 watts.

    You can connect two 2400W Yamaha Inverter Generators and increase the peak output to the peak output to 4300 watts and continuous output of 3800 watts.

  • 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: https://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.

  • 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 don't get a national service network with the cheap brands. 

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

  • My product manual for my inverter generator mentions an 'earthing wire / earthing stake' - do I need this?

    Hi there, good question. This is mentioned in generator manuals and is a safety feature that will earth the generator. You do have the option to fit an 'earth wire'. Connecting an earth wire and stake is an option available to customer's that purchase a generator.

    An earth wire and stake are not supplied with generators that we sell and is application specific. In practice, we do not see customer's do this, especially for inverter generators. It can be something that is implemented for more specialized generators on mining work sites for example...for common applications, it is not common practice to 'earth' the generator with a wire and stake. If you are in doubt, and you have a specialized generator requirement that may need 'earthing', please consult an electrician. Hope that helps.

  • Hi we are looking at going on the road (nomads) and would like to have a idea on what size generator to run a Caravan A/C and a 185l fridge/freezer? regards Bryan

    Hi there, great question. The item that will draw the most power will be your Caravan A/C unit - it would be a good idea for you to contact the manufacturer of your A/C unit, speak to their technical dept. and find out what size generator they recommend for your particular model. We find that the quality Caravan A/C brands such as Dometic, Air Command, Coleman, Denso etc. are very helpful.

    In our experience, most Caravan A/C units will require a starting wattage of around 2000 to 3000 watts. So, the most popular generator models to run your Caravan A/C unit are the Yamaha EF2400iS and the Yamaha EF2800I.

    Some smaller and newer/more efficient Caravan A/C models can run on the Yamaha EF2000iS. Again, once you have spoken to your A/C manufacturer, you will be best placed to make the call, however we find that most caravan owners will opt for a 2400watt or 2800watt inverter generator model for two reasons: 1) it gives them some extra power capacity for other small appliances if required, and 2) in hotter environments, any generator's capacity is slightly de-rated, so having a generator with slightly more capability than you need can be very useful as the ambient temp gets well into the 30 degrees and above temperatures.     

    As for your 185L caravan fridge-freezer, this will not draw much power. Most quality upright caravan fridges will only draw around 100 watts (give or take). Thank you.

  • 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, great question!

    This a very common inquiry here at My Generator. The Dometic Air Command Ibis MK3 has been in production for several years with various versions of this model requiring different size generators to start. We know that the majority of the Ibis MK3's out there can be started and run with a quality inverter generator with a peak output of 2200W. The Briggs & Stratton (link)2200W is one of our most popular generators for this air conditioner. If you want to be 100% sure of starting and running the Ibis MK3 then look no further, then the Yamaha EF2200IS inverter generator.

    The Yamaha EF2200IS Inverter Generator has a unique boost feature that is ideal for starting all caravan rooftop air conditioners. The boost feature allows the Yamaha to handle a short overload whereas other inverter generators will cut out when under similar demand.

    In reference to your question about Rated Capacity (3100W), this is simply the rating of the compressor output and can be used as a size guide but should not be relied upon to size the starting requirements of the Air Conditioner.

    Other great options for all roof top caravan air conditioners are the Yamaha EF2400IS and Cromtech 2400W Inverter Generators. To make the decision easier please refer to our Air Conditioner / Generator Sizing Table - displayed in the Product Description of each caravan air conditioner.

  • 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. 

  • 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!

  • 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 EF2200iS, 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.

  • 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.

  • How frequently do I have to change the motor oil? Product info says to change it after the first 20hrs, and after this first change?

    Hi, after the first oil change, the recommended oil change time frame is every 6 months or 100 hours of use. When in doubt always consult our user manual for recommended maintenance. 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 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 EF2200IS or EF2400IS inverter generator model is the most popular for Air Conditioners: the boost feature of the EF2200iS and the larger engine and greater output in the Yamaha 2400 generator, respectively suits most caravan A/C units on the market.

  • Hi, does the Yamaha 2000 inverter generator warranty cover parts and labor for 4 years? It's for camping use, not commercial. Thanks

    Hello - thank you for your query. Yes, all Yamaha Generators have a four year consumer warranty which would cover recreational/camping use. The owner's manual lists the full details of the warranty which you can download on the product page on our site.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • Delivery time to Devonport Tasmania?

    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.

    Many 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 vacuum cleaners at 240volts will draw 1920 watts at start up, and then drop to 1080 watts running. So, if you were to use your vacuums or your steamer one appliance at a time, then this generator would be fine.

    However, if you wanted to use both vacuums 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.

  • 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.

  • Can I charge my battery pack from the generator?

    Hi Adam, and thanks for your question; in short, yes you can. The Yamaha EF2200iS, 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.

  • 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 1000 watts up to 7000 watts.   

  • 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! :)

  • 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. 

  • 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 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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! 

  • Whereabouts are the Yamaha service agents located? Thank you.

    Hi Martin, Yamaha has over 200 accredited service agents around the country. The following website link has the full list and you can type in your postcode to find the nearest service agent to you: https://generatoryamaha.com.au/where-to-buy/

  • Do you guys have some general tips for generator maintenance? Ta

    Hi there - good question, yes, we do! Firstly, as a safety note, always stop the engine and let the generator cool down before starting any maintenance work. The five main general tips are;

    1. Replace engine oil
    2. Check spark plug, replace if necessary
    3. Check fuel level and ensure it is fresh fuel (fuel left for a long time can go "off")
    4. Check air filter, replace if necessary
    5. Clean muffler cover and check spark arrestor 

    You can also check out this helpful video on generator maintenance tips.

    For further maintenance help, you should take your generator to a small engine specialist or an accredited generator service technician. 

  • 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

  • I am told by my electrician that to wire this into my home - the generator must not have a "centre tap" - Can you advise if this has or hasn't?

    Hi, these portable generators don’t have a centre tap. 

    Many thanks.

  • We have a 1979 Bedford bus-motorhome. We plan to travel around Aust, and we have a 2kva generator. What Aircon do you recommend? Bus is 10 metres long. Cheers

    Lucky you mate!  This is an easy recommendation:  with your 2kVA (2000 watt) generator and size of your RV, we would certainly recommend the Dometic Harrier Roof-top Inverter Air Conditioner.  The will easily start and run from your sizzed generator and the size of this A/C model will suit your larger type of RV. 

    Many thanks, and happy travels! 

  • What payment methods do you have.Thanks

    We accept Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and direct funds transfer. All these options are available during checkout. Many thanks.

  • Can I buy the cover separately?

    Yes - Covers for our Yamaha models can be purchased as a separate item and can be found in our Generator Accessories section here.

  • 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

  • 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 carburettor 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 carburettor
    • 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.

Super quiet Review by
I bought this based on reviews about how quiet this model is and I have to say I have been super impressed. It really is very quiet. It’s also been very economical on the fuel, I was worried about the size of the fuel tank but not so much anymore .

Excellent generator Review by
Always assumed we’d buy a Honda generator but after reading many reviews happily settled on the Yamaha EF 2000is due to its size, quality, features (including the fuel gauge!), and most importantly quietness. We certainly don’t want the incessant irritation of a noisy generator so this was a no-brainer.

First generator. Very happy. Review by
Starts really easy. Good quality product and easy to service / operate. No guessing needed and no poorly translated instructions or cheese-grade parts. I went for Yamaha because I'm likely to only occasionally use the genny and will be relying on it to 'just work' during the Queensland cyclone / storm season. Another tick on the 'man card' as far as wifey's concerned (but she's comfortable starting it too).

Well designed and manufactured and good value comp Review by
I bought the Generator for emergency use during future blackouts. The deciding feature for me was the ability to shut off the fuel, minutes before stopping the engine. This drained the carburetor of fuel that would otherwise block-up jets when stored for long periods of time between use. Using the Generator for domestic use, I found that the engine was quiet, low revving and not obtrusive to my neighbours. Its output will enable our family to live comfortably during a city blackout. As an emergency Generator, it meets my family's needs and I am very happy with my investment.

The generator goes great. The service from you was Review by
I have just bought the Yamaha 2000w inverter generator and I am rapt in how it goes. It runs so quiet we can't hear it inside the house and the neighbours are also very impressed on how quiet it is. I'm 68 years old and have no trouble carrying it down from my shed to the house. I am able to run 2 Tucker box freezers, a fridge and some led lights in our house and then some. Bring on the black outs. Thank you Yamaha, Cliff.

Works a treat Review by
The Yamaha starts easily and does the job for what we need. Gives us some additional options when camping for extended periods. Not a big fan of generators at camp sites however we were caught out last year with a week of overcast and wet weather which meant our solar set up couldn't keep us charged up. And an unexpected bonus, only a week after it arrived, we had a tempoary power outage at home while the power company changed a pole...the yamaha kept the fridge running.

Lived up to expectation Review by
After many, many hours of review on the Internet, I decided upon the Yamaha EF2000is portable generator. I have certainly not been disappointed. After unpacking and adding oil and petrol, the generator started 2nd pull. It's lightweight, quiet, and easy to use. I particularly like the ability to be able to shut off the fuel and drain the carburetor after use.

The Yamaha EF2000Is Review by
I need portable power for my involvement with High School HPV camps and for my own camping/caravanning expeditions now that I'm retired. It took me a long while, comparing Yamaha to other market-leading brands. After a month of hard searching and reading /comparing the Yammy won hands down! The EF2000Is is a quiet and reliable high quality power source that I would recommend to anyone willing to spend that extra buck to buy a quality unit. If you want a cheapie look elsewhere. The unit is robust and stable, the power generated is spike filtered and high quality sine wave power so I don't hesitate to charge computers, phones or other sensitive equipment. The Yamaha EF2000Is is now the most important piece of camping equipment I own, and I expect it will out-perform all comers of similar size and quality.
(Posted on 29 April 2017)

If we can do it... Review by
Two older gals with basically no idea about gennies (although you can tell we have our lingo down pat!). One value question is more about Yamaha. How they can price a flimsy cover that is branded with Yamaha at $80 I don't know. We are basically promoting their product with that cover. It is not very substantial. Expected something sturdier for a RRP of $80! Maybe they can add an oil pourer to make adding that oil easier.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The unit is currently running on the back of my boat to charge up hot water system…..love it. Have found it easier to start and quieter than the Honda, which I had on my previous boat. Honda offered me a better deal but I wanted to try out the Yamaha given its good reviews. In Eco mode it does not disturb boats close by, especially if you have to run it at night.

Very happy with this Genny. I put some oil in it, put some fuel in and it turned it on and it started first pull. The low load setting works a treat. I will be using this machine with my caravan when I free camp. It will do everything I need it to do except run my air-con which I knew anyway. This machine is more expensive than most others and only time will tell if it was worth the extra cost.

Am so happy with my Yamaha 2000 , looks great, easy to carry, started first pull after filling with oil and petrol, super quiet compared to my previous gennies. Love the fuel cut of switch! We don't use a generator a lot as our van has solar panels but it's great to have confidence in a unit if and when I will need to fire it up.

This is my second Yamaha. The first being a 1000i. I was happy with the first one but even happier with the 2000i. This one is quieter too.

value for money Review by
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

NO issues with the product which is to be expected when you invest in Quality. Was quieter than I thought it would be so that was a bonus.

Excellent generator, very quiet & worth the money Review by
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
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...

Very quiet and reliable Review by
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.

Excellent value for the outlay Review by
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.

Not big enough for me Review by
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. In this case, bigger is better :)

We are absolutly pleased with our Yamaha Generator, I researched as I do before any purchase and found that this was the best value for money generator. It has performed as we expected and runs all our gear without any issues. Fuel ecconomy is as the brochure and it's that easy to start the dear wife has no issues starting this genset and it's quiet (which keeps the wife off my back) I have no problem reccommending the Yamaha Generator. absolutly pleased. Great value for money :-) Thanks, Vince.

After doing our homework and owning a cheap brand generator, we decided on a Yamaha 2000w, for its low noise and light weight. We love our new generator.

Great Service, Great Product. Review by
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.

Best 2kva Generator Review by
The Yamaha EF2000is would have to be the most compact lightest and easiest to use generator in the 2 kva class. Wife loves it she can start and use it by herself when out camping which leaves more time for fishing for me.

Yammy is Yummy Review by

Beautifully quiet Review by
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.

Love the easy starting! Review by
From straight out of the box (after adding oil of course) the generator started on the second pull, no priming required! This is a complete revelation from my previous generator (which was a similar 2Kw inverter style and only a little cheaper than this Yamaha with its current discounted price. I am so happy with it that I am almost wishing for that next power outage so I can hook it up to the house!

Hi My Generator My Yammy 2000 inverter arrived on time in excellent condition, gave it a good test out for 5 hours, works well operating a big fridge TV. Plus computer, and so quiet, I would recommend them to anyone looking for a this size of generator.

Yamaha 2000w powers my 1300w Jack Hammer efficien Review by
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.

Best quality gen on the market Review by
Thanks my generator,This has got to be the quietest, most powerful and fuel efficient gen on the market for 2kva use. I have tried the Honda and other brand equivalents and I am telling you none of them come close.This Little unit comfortably powers a coffee cart at almost full load for 6 hours straight with no need to refuel.

Yamaha EF2000is Review by
Got a new Yamaha EF2000is, its awesome thanks guys, this unit easily copes with the 6.5 amps of load we put on it from a commercial coffee machine. I honestly believe these are better than the Honda eu20i's as i have used both now. Also to anyone looking to purchase a cheap import versus Honda/Yamaha, the two brand name models blow them out of the water for efficiency and low noise levels.

really quiet Review by
Needed the quietest possible and generator and I reckon this is it. Lightweight and I get plenty of run out of a full tank. My brother has the connecting cables to join up and get double output when we're on the road. A real winner - cheers, Rob.

Better than Honda 2kva Review by
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. Both are light and pretty quiet, but the Yamaha has a few added features that make it easier to use. The Yamaha starts no problems when its really cold (unlike the Honda) and you can drain the Carb. This is a big advantage over the Honda. The Yamaha also has a fuel gauge which is handy. Really happy with the Yamaha 2000w.

Quality Review by
Bought this from the lads at My Generator for my cabin on the South Coast NSW. We run lights, vaccum cleaner and a small pump - I highly recommend it: top quality, easy to move around and does everything I ask with ease.

Top Performer Review by
I did plenty of research and checked out loads of different brands before selecting the Yamaha EF2000is. Based on my research I felt it provided the highest quality with the most features in this price range. So if you don't give a hoot about clean power, low noise, long warranty, weight and added features, then i suggest you go for another brand. There's plenty out there...

Just what i needed Review by
I'm a camp drafting official and frequently camp at the meet. My Yamaha EF2000Is is a great addition and runs real quiet - perfect for camping grounds. Starts quickly, runs quiet and powers everything I need to get through the weekend.
