Exhaust is through a normal flapper except it is square. Nice quiet muffler.

The square grate is the vertical radiator outlet, a necessity on any quiet generator.

The military is selling them all off. They have a replacement the MEP 1040. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6JG1TDbTkc

Another one of the 1030's in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_zDACES2ys&t=59s

I have a few customers with that engine, I am not a big fan. Look how bad it shakes in the first video, it will rattle every piece off the engine. Of course the LED display is completely unnecessary and a disaster waiting to happen.

Hi,

Quick update of the Honda.

At the moment it have 518 hours we were without power for 44 days After Maria and 4 days after Irma, I have done the spark plug change, air filter change, 5 oil change, spark arrestor clean.

It is working perfectly, great machine.

That's great to hear. The EU7000 is getting hard to find. My favorite dealer is out of stock until Nov 30. Its a good thing you have one.

With the recent hurricanes devastating Houston and Puerto Rico, supplies have been a bit tight on generators. No worries, as the plants ramp up a bit during storm season, so normal stocking levels should resume soon. The biggest issue has been shipping restrictions to Puerto Rico (taxes, customs, import issues, etc.)

Well the problem is that almost all the power generation in PR is done in the south of the island, but the mayor consume is in the north. So the power authority bring the power to the north using big transmissions lines that almost all of them were destroy during Maria, theses lines runs in the mountains making it very hard to repair, most of them have to be work by an helicopter.

Also they have not take the right decision on how to resolve fast enough the transmission and distribution lines. At the moment the energy generation is on 42 %.

Thanks Cano63. You folks are in our thoughts. And if there is anything we can do, like you need some obscure generator part, just let us know and weíll mail it to you. Is the mail getting through?

I bought 101 shares of HMC a few weeks ago. Its been going up. Keep up the good work. People need equipment. Especially generators right now. Oh yes we also need the EU7000 Parallel kit.

Yes, the taxes and import charges are not helping with the prices. But one thing I don't get is why the Price of the Honda Generators in PR are extremely high compare with the states. An example is the EU7000is, this generator in USA its like $4,000, but in PR in July was starting at $5,700 plus taxes, now it is like $6,550 plus taxes. If you bring the generator by air it will cost like $400 ( fedex, UPS ) it still under $4,500. Other example is the EU2000i, in USA is at $900, but here in the dealer in July was on 1800 + taxes, now it is at 2,200 plus taxes, that a way to much. The dealer Honda in PR is abusing of the prices before the Hurricane season and now in the emergency is worst.

Will be good if Honda establish a maximum gain after shipping costs, the taxes in PR are 11.5% percent.

Alex ...... I'm absolutely not recommending Generac for a gen , but as an stock investment compare a 1-5 year chart of HMC and Generac (GNRC). Wish I bought a bunch in summer, ~ 50% increase. G's heavy TV advertising this year seems to have worked. Will be interesting if it plunges just as fast when they start failing. G's stock price has already fallen 6% from it's recent high.

Len I could not agree with you more. Generac is a master at marketing. I too would not own one or recommend one. As a stock it was and maybe still is a good short term investment. I feel its an investment you really have to keep a good eye on. A lot of us know what the Generac product is. The public who got suckered in will know soon too. That's the time to get out. Honda on the other hand I feel is a good long term investment. Their Auto's aren't doing as well as I feel they could, but their marine and home power equipment still has a very good investment brand name behind it. At the price point of Honda stock I don't think you can go wrong going long with it.

I donít know if Honda has control over the dealers, but that isnít right.They have raised the price by almost 20%. Iím all for the free market, and you can normally charge whatever someone is willing to pay, but the aftermath of a natural disaster is a different situation. Many states have price gouging laws to prevent just this sort of thing. Maybe P.R. does too.

I noticed there also higher in Canada than the states too. When I go to the Honda power page the list price on the EU7000 is $4,499.00. I saw used one for sale in Canada for $4,500. I thought that was crazy. I think the competition in the states is what keeps the price down. Here's the video link to the one for sale in Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJjt1qu7TE8
