Honda 660270 Generator Review 2019

 

Specifications

The Honda 660270 (EU7000is) has a rated power of 5500W, and a maximum power of 7,000W, making it ideal for home back-up power, and outdoor events.

This generator is also very fuel efficient, running for up to 18 hours on 5.1 gallons of fuel. This unit is also relatively quiet when compared to other generators of its size, with a decibel rating of 60 at rated load.

The Honda 660270 boasts a GX390 EFI  engine with convenient button push start up, with a back-up easily pulled recoil start-up. Fuel capacity for this unit stands at 5.1 gal.

The 660270 has a dry weight of this product is 261lbs, therefore we would not advise attempting to lift this generator with one person.

 

Safety & Warranty

This unit benefits from Advanced Inverter Technology, which provides reliable power for computers and other sensitive equipment. As well as this, the Honda 660270 is protected by Oil Alert, which will shut off the engine should the oil level drop too low. This generator also has a standard fuel gauge to allow the user to accurately measure oil level.

On purchase of this product, the user also avails of a three-year residential and commercial warranty.

 

Design

This product is clearly designed with the convenience of the user in mind. The main body of the unit is placed on wheels to allow for ease of transport, while there are easily folded handles across the top. An i-Monitor system is capable of tracking hours, battery volts, RPM and wattage . This unit also comes with GFCI outlets.

Speaking for the unit’s visual appeal, this generator bears the iconic red and black Honda colours. While it may not be the most elegant design, it is a well designed generator. There are plenty of handles, on the top, bottom, and two fold out prong-like handles at the top. This allows for ease in multiple transport situations. This makes the Honda 660270 ideal for the great outdoors.

 

Summary

To conclude our Honda 660270 Review, with all factors considered, this is a decent generator. Moderately powerful, safe, and not very loud, this generator is perfect for a camping trip, or for backing up your appliances at home. The optimised portability of this unit is an extra bonus. However, we warn you that this generator is not exactly small, so you should prepare space for this product whenever you intend on using it.
