Review: Yamaha EF2000ISv2 Portable Inverter Generator

Yamaha EF2000ISv2: The introduction

More and more people around the world are beginning to open their horizons and try to enjoy the “great outdoors.” In fact, the number of individuals who would go on picnics, outings, trekking, and many other activities together with their friends and families has been increasing in the past recent years. Simply put, many are starting to reconnect with nature and explore places they’ve never been to. And while it’s remarkable and outstanding, we can’t deny the fact that we are not used to places and conditions where electricity is not available. The good news is this is not a hindrance since people can bring their a portable generator in trips like these. If you’re on the lookout for the next best one, check out this review of the latest Yamaha EF2000isv2 to determine whether this would be perfect for your next trip.

Yamaha EF2000ISv2: Key features

Powerful output

This new release from the Yamaha company features a maximum AC output of 2000 watts and a rated AC output of 1600 watts courtesy of the new controller with advanced programming that is incorporated in the generator. This addition actually allows the EF2000isv2 to power up a wider range of applications compared to its predecessors. And if you still need more power, Yamaha has got you covered with a convenient parallel function that allows you to connect two generators so you could have power up to 30 amps plus it also has a massive fuel tank capacity of 1.1 gallons.

Long, silent operation

This generator is fitted with Yamaha’s muffler that you can turn it on and keep it running without you even noticing it because of its low noise level of 51.5 to 61 dBA at 1/4 rated load. Aside from its reduced noise level feature, the EF2000isv2 comes with the Smart Throttle which is a load sensing rpm control that automatically adjusts engine speed to match the load which actually promotes greater fuel efficiency and noise reduction. So that’s a lot of power flow that can be consistently maintained to up to 10.5 hours at 1/4 rated load on a tank of gas.

Impressive additions

It’s always a problem when the gas in a generator goes stale after a long period of time without using it. So to prevent this from happening, Yamaha installed a gasoline petcock that lets you shut off the gas to run the carb dry for storage. This will actually keep our back pockets full since the gas won’t be wasted. It also won’t be a hassle anymore to check the amount of gas that is left since the new fuel gauge provides that information at a glance.

Yamaha prides itself on this inverter generator’s ability to supply clean, high-quality power with its inverter system that features the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) which maintains voltage stability within ± 1% and frequency stability at ± 0.1 HZ. Its sine-wave technology outperforms other generators on the market as well.

Yamaha EF2000ISv2: The verdict

If you’re looking for the newest and the latest in portable inverter generator technology, then the Yamaha EF2000isv2 is for you! It may be considered a bit steep but its upgrades, capacity, reliability, and numerous accessories like the power cables, the RV adapter kit, the appliance load tester, and the tachometer make the price worth it. With this generator, you not only get to have a continuous operation with a powerful engine but you will also receive that without all the noise that usually accompanies this type of machine. It is perfect for any kind of application and since it is lightweight, bringing it wherever you go won’t be such a big deal.
