Kipor Portable Generators Review: Without Equal?

Note: I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post. Kipor portable generators are yellow. I suppose this is partly to distinguish them from other popular brands that are primarily red (Honda) and blue (Yamaha). Kipor (pronounced, kee-pore) assigns the name Sinemaster to their line of digital inverter generators. They probably had the … Read moreKipor Portable Generators Review: Without Equal?

Cummins Onan (aka, Cummins Power Systems, since the early 1990s) nearly has a monopoly on the recreational vehicle (RV) market when it comes to generators. They still put just “Onan” on the machines themselves, and you will still see mention of Onan RV generators online and in print.

With the many years of experience that Cummins has had with these portable generators, you would think all their machines would work like a charm, wouldn’t you?

Honda currently makes four lines of portable generators – the EU, EB, EG, and EM series. The main differences among them are their intended use and how they try to conserve fuel, so they can run longer on a single tank of gas.

The EU series features several inverter machines. The EG series as well as the EB and EM have large gas tanks. The EB series and the EM that I’ll discuss below each use Auto Throttle to use less fuel when the load is decreased.

Let’s take a closer look at the 3 models in the EM series to see which one, if any, is best suited to your needs. If, by the end of this review, you find that none of them is a good match, check out the other series using the links in the previous paragraph. I’m sure you’ll find one that you’ll want to try.

We’ll take a look here at the 4 main models in the EG line. You’ll see a quick comparison, via a table, of some of the more significant features of each model. We’ll also look at what distinguishes each one from the rest.
