We use a Yamaha EF 3000 ISE.
It has been converted to use propane
Father's Day week-end the generator
was used for about 24hrs. running time total. With temps running 100+ F we needed A/C for our dog and us.
If necessary, the refer, A/C, TV, microwave
, water pump, and lights
may all be used simultaneously. The generator
will slow slightly when the A/C cycles on. We always use the generator
on the economy mode, We used the propane
B-B-Q for coffee in the morning, the hot water heater (with just the pilot), the refer, and the generator all on propane
starting Wednesday, 6/15. The refer all day today Monday has still been running on propane at home and we just realized we were beginning to smell a propane odor which indicates the 20 Lb. tank is getting close to empty. I can't tell you how long the generator will run on a propane container full, because we have all the other uses, but we carry 2 tanks.
The comments over the last couple of years, have been innumerable about how quiet the Yamaha is compared with other generators. Make no mistake, it still makes a noise, but you can stand next to it and carry on a conversation without raising your voice.
We're convinced Yamaha really does
make the quietest generators. I've been told that Yamaha is also the world's largest generator manufacturer.
Works for us,
& Ann K.
