When Quiet Counts, Count on Honda.
Quiet, lightweight Honda Portable Generators deliver clean, reliable power for camping, tailgating or a home power outage. Exclusive Honda inverter technology produces steady power to run electronics and appliances and to charge automotive-type batteries. All feature fuel-efficient 4-stroke air-cooled overhead valve engines, recoil auto start and spark arrester/muffler.

Note: This Honda EU3000 is the CARB-Compliant model. For more information on the non-California model, please click here.

  • Excellent source of power for RVs, including 13,500 BTU AC units, and basic home backup power

    This popular model can operate a wide variety of appliances, including a furnace, fridge, microwave, most 13,500 BTU RV AC units, and much more.

  • Super quiet - less noise than normal conversation

    So quiet, your neighbors will thank you. The EU3000iS operates at 49 to 58dB(A), which is less noise than a normal conversation. This makes it ideal for camping, RV power and any other activity that requires quiet operation.

  • Convenient electric starting

    Easy recoil starting is also available as a back up.

  • Fuel efficient - Runs up to 20 hours on 3.4 gals of fuel

    Thanks to our exclusive Eco-Throttle System, the EU3000iS offers great fuel efficiency. Runs from 7.2 to 20 hours on a single tank, depending on the load. This makes it great for overnight power.

  • Advanced inverter technology - reliable power for computers and other sensitive equipment

    Honda's inverter technology means stable, clean power in a smaller, lighter package. The precision of Honda's inverter technology ensures our inverter generators produce power that is as reliable as the power you get from your outlets at home.

  • Double your power with parallel capability

    Need more power? Add a second EU3000iS for additional power. Two identical models can be paralleled with an optional cable for up to 6000 watts of power.

  • 12V - 12.0A DC output

    The EU3000iS has a DC outlet for use when charging 12-volt automotive type batteries. (Requires an optional charging cord.)

    Quiet, Reliable, and Efficient

    I have put hundreds of hours on my EU2000 and many hours on a borrowed EU3000 to power Ham Radio Contest Stations in the field to great success. They are both quiet, reliable, portable, and use the absolute minimum fuel necessary. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy with the EU2000, I was able to power critical items in my house, as well as for the widow next door for over a week while waiting for the power company to restore the massive number of downed lines. We kept both NaturalGas-WarmAir Furnaces, both refrigerators, and some lights, and her TV going more than 20 hours a day, just shutting down occasionally to check the oil, fill the gas tank, and give the machine a little rest. We made the first connection so she would not lose the contents of her refrigerator. The second turning point was when the weather turned cold, and her house was getting uncomfortable for her kids. Of course, keeping the TV running helped the chaos level with three young kids while all schools were shut down all week. Cable TV and Phones were also down, but her satellite reception was still good. I later put an Over-The-Air TV Antenna back up at home. Next, I really want my own EU3000. No whole house A/C, but we can fire other stuff up at will.

    Great generator

    My old generator was good, but it was noisy and could not handle the demands of my RV. I purchased the eu3000 and had this unit as a backup for my 3 month on road vacation this past summer. I had 3 occasions to use it. One at a park with only 15 amp hydro available. I was able to have the A/C going as well as everything else with no problems. Another time I used it for 4 days at a relatives place as I was 300 feet away from his hydro outlet. Then, one last time when a storm put the parks hydro out for two days. I kept it chained up in the back of my pickup with a truck cap that locks for security. No problems at all, just fold down the back gate, plug it in to 30 amps, turn the key and away it goes. Oh, and I just stopped off at gas stations the next day to top off my tank while the Honda generator was still chained up in the back. I never had to load or unload that generator once for anything!! Just a fantastic generator. I am going to purchase another one to daisy chain the two of them together to power my home for blackouts.

    This generator has more than enough power for a 30Amp toy hauler. It worked great. It turned everything on and had plenty of power to spare. It runs for 20+ hours on a tank of gas. You can not hear it run. This is the best generator I ever bought, it was worth every penny.

    Very quiet in comparison to many other generators, and that's what you are paying for, (for the most part). Rated at 28 Amps, not 30, so it'll keep you cool with the lights on but not much more than that. I have a 25' TT with fridge on electric, AC (13500BTU) running, and a few lights. Anything more and you'll shut it down, that's the max as far as I've been able to test it.

    Ordered this generator, not sure if it would provide enough power for a 30Amp toyhauler. It worked super, turned everything on and had plenty of power left and the fuel consumption really surprised me, it's a sipper.

    I purchased this generator on faith of other people's talk. I wasn't sure which one to buy ! so after looking at what I needed too power up I chose the EU3000IS. I have a 28 foot travel trailor with 13.5 AC and it will run it and microwave or hot water heater with no problem.The ECO switch at night with ac and tv will run all night with no problem. 11 hours and still have 1/4 tank or more. BEST MONEY SPENT!!!

    If you are serious about purchasing a generator. Do not hesitate to buy a Honda. We have had ours for 4 years now. The best and quietest generator we could find. Well worth the money. What is really impressive is not only the lack of noise but how long it will run on a tank of gas. The last time we ran ours was with the a/c on. Lasted an easy 7 hours. Simply awesome. I would also rec. the wheel kit.

    Bought one as home backup & for my DJ business. I can't tell you the # of people who were fascinated by this generator. Not only is it extremely quiet, but very fuel efficient as well. I did 4 DJ gigs (15 hours total) & still had 1/4 tank of fuel left. At 160 lbs fully fueled, it is not exactly lightweight, but any man worth his salt should be able to get it on & off a truck & onto a dolly. Cheaper & easier to operate/maintain than 2 EU2000's. And unlike the new EU3000 Handi, you do not have to refuel this generator every 4 hours. I would also like to add that NJ saw 4 blizzards this winter and we lost power during 2 of them. This Honda generator saved me! While everyone else in my development was siting in the dark waiting for power to be restored, I ran a fridge, entertainment center (computer, TV, cable, DVD, etc...) some lights, Nintendo Wii and a space heater no problem whatsoever!

    We had a BIG, Loud 5500 watt generator till we went to the AMA race at Miller Motorsport Park in 2007. It was 107 deg that day when the old one came to a stop. We ran in to a the near by town that had a Honda dealer. I wanted this quit generator for some time, but did not want to spend the money for it. Well 3 year later, I am so glad I did. Now if I could just get every one else in the pits to get one, I would get a quits night sleep. Haha.

    I did a lot of research and found the 3000si to be awesome!!! Super quiet, handles anything you thow at it. The electric starter is a real nice feature. I also tested the manual pull start--- easy! Small enough to store anywhere, powerful enough to handle our 5th wheel. Highly recommend this gennie for anyone who demands the most from a generator. Also, in the econo mode, the gen adjusts the rpm to match the load you need. At low idle, you almost forget it's running, and that's when you're outside with it.

    I have had my EU3000i for three years. Unit had a stuck valve. $150.00. Had to replace the carburator last week $260.00. When it runs it is a great generator. Powers everything in our 5th wheel.

    The EU300IS is by far the quietist, longest lasting, most reliable gennie in its class, second to none, reasonably priced and with th eco throttle can run 20 hours on a tank of gas. It runs my A/C, TV and Coffee Maker at the same time in my RV, I switch off the AC compressor, turn on the micro and the gennie doesnt missa beat. AWESOME
