I wanted a Honda EU2000i generator with plans to buy a second one later and run them tandem.
When I got to Northen Tools, they had their brand on sale for $569.
It has a few pros and cons: Theirs includes the cables to run them in tandem, Honda does not (Honda cables-$100). The size is 1" taller and 1db lower for theirs. Honda does include 3yr warranty and theirs is 2yr. Honda price$1099 or $999 (regular or companion). They include free shipping. I got two of theirs (called Powerhorse LC2000i
I don't work for them or have any connection.
