Re: Costco - Smarter Tools 2000W Gen by Yamaha
I have a Ryobi 2800 I picked up from Home Depot for $599.
I can't verify the db's at various levels of load because I don't carry a meter to do so, I can say I've used both the Honda 2000 and my 2800 - the 2800 is at a minimum no louder.
It' also capable of 2200 watts continuous, 2800 peak, has economy mode that can either charge my batt's, run my microwave, or run my 7200 btu air conditioner.
None of that can be done by the Honda in eco mode, and it's 60% of the cost.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
