Q. it easy to use?
Ans. The cord system may sound intimidating but this generator has an auto decompression system which makes starting the generator by pulling the cable much easier.
You will not have to try a lot as the generator will start the first time. Also, don’t let winters scare you. It works equally well in winters and does not require a lot of effort to start thanks to the auto warmup feature.
Moreover, it’s also quite easy to take care of thanks to the fuel gauge that helps keep an eye on fuel levels so you know when to refill. You will also face no trouble in starting the unit after extended storage thanks to carb drain and fuel shutoff features.
Q. Is it environmental friendly?
Ans. With the highest EPA rating, the generator is environmentally friendly. You can keep it indoors but make sure to not sit around it when it’s operational as it still produces harmful gases.
Q. Is it easy to maintain?
Ans. You will have to add oil when you use it for the first time but that’s not much of an issue since it comes with a manual which explains the timely maintenance routine.
The manual includes instructions on how to change oil, replace spark plugs and fuel filters. The generator does not require heavy maintenance. However, make sure to only take it to a Yamaha authorized service provider if it needs repairs.
Note: The warranty can become void if you install non-Yamaha parts or do not follow instructions.
Despite its small size, the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 Inverter Generator is quite powerful. It works silently and is quite safe to use as well. However, it cannot handle big appliances. Go for this one if you need a portable generator to run small appliances.
