Honda 660570 Generator Review 2019

 

Specifications

The Honda 660570 (EB5000) puts out a rated wattage of 4500, with a maximum of 5000W. This makes the 660570 a good choice for outdoor activities, or as a back-up source of power for home appliances in the case of a power-outage.

This generator is slightly louder than some of the others we have reviewed however, with a decibel rating of 72. This would not be overly disruptive, but you would certainly be aware of the generator’s presence.

The fuel capacity for this unit stands at 6.2 gal.  This unit has a dry weight of 214lbs, and is therefore quite heavy. We would not recommend attempting to lift this unit with one person. The 660570 has a commercial Honda iGX390 engine

 

Safety & Warranty

Advanced iAVR (Intelligent Automatic Voltage Regulator) technology allows the generator to provide a constant flow of power, without being affected by the load. GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Protection) on all outlets allows protection of all appliances and tools hooked up to the generator. Honda’s Oil Alert will automatically shut down the generator when the oil level drops too low. The i-Monitor provides service diagnostics while the generator is in operation.

This product avails of a 3 year residential and commercial warranty.

 

Design

The Honda 660570 is a relatively large generator. With two foldable handles on the front, and wheels attached to the bottom, this is a very transportable generator. Both the wheels and handles are attached to a black metal frame around the generator, which helps shield it from damage as a bonus. The generator itself is basic Honda design, with the black/red contrast dominating the aesthetic appearance of the entire product.

Summary

To conclude our Honda 660570 Review, we would recommend this generator for usage in outdoor activities, and home back-up power sourcing. This generator’s several safety settings make it suitable for use around the home. Furthermore, by buying a Honda product, you will likely find it very easy to service your generator due to Honda possessing a wide network of service stations across the US.
