This week on Buy or Bust, we're talking about Yamaha generators, specifically the EF2200iS. This powerful, yet compact, lightweight generator inverter is a great piece of equipment to own. It can meet all the demands of today's outdoors enthusiast and their outdoor activities, but also goes beyond recreation and provides reliable power for the jobsite, at home, in a power outage situation and more.
The Yamaha EF2200iS is a pull start generator that runs on a 79cc, 4-stroke, air-cooler, single cylinder engine. The EF2200iS delivers 2,200 watts of power and can run at ¼-load continuously for more than 10 hours. It is equipped with two standard 120-volt 15-amp three-prong outlets and a 12-volt receptacle. In the event that more power is needed, Yamaha's Twin Tech feature makes it possible to connect two EF2200iS models in-line with a Twin Tech cable for an output of 3,600 watts or 30 amps. Yamaha has also managed to reduce the sound output of a traditional generator to make this EF2200iS quiet with a noise level that comes in at just 57 - 65 dBA, the volume of a normal conversation.
The EF2200iS is also loaded with safety features like a CO sensor that will detect high levels of carbon monoxide and shut the engine down in a dangerous situation like that. It also has an overload power reset and a ground earth terminal to prevent electric shock.
