Honda EU6500is Generator

Updated Oct 20, 2010

The Honda EU6500is is the most powerful member of the EU family of portable generators.  Addressing customer demand for a more powerful model – yet still portable and exceptionally quiet – the lightweight, low noise, compact and fuel efficient EU6500is generator leads the EU Super Quiet class in high quality, portable power technology.   


Integrating a number of features from other members of the EU generator family, the EU6500is produces 6500 watts (54.1/27.1A) of Honda Inverter 120/240V AC power for outdoor events, remote job sites, camping, RVing and home backup power demands. 


– Compact footprint: the size of the EU6500is has been reduced more than 33 percent as compared to the Honda EX5500 Super Quiet generator; dry weight (253 pounds) reduced more than 35 percent over the EX5500.

– Noise reduction:  The EU6500is at rated load is 5dB, the level of normal conversation.  The separate triple chamber construction, a centralized intake/exhaust system and the Eco-Throttle  design all contribute to lower noise levels.

– Low fuel consumption: due to the high efficiency inverter for 120V and 240V simultaneous output and Eco-Throttle  design

– High quality power output:  enhanced commercial grade electricity with the wave form distortion factor of less than 2.5 percent, safe for even sensitive electronics

– User-friendly features:  the iMonitor displays operation status, wattage and engines speed, making problem diagnoses and maintenance simple and a one-push foldable handle enhances compact design.
