The Honda V-Twin engine offers more power, reliability, greater fuel economy and reduced emissions in a more compact package.

Compact shape and unique design for easy installations

The EB10000 has a compact, slim design that can be easily installed on the job site. A centralized exhaust mechanism creates a unique "hot" zone for exhaust and "cool" zone for operation and passage. This design is especially helpful when using multiple units, as they can be easily positioned so as not to impact each others' cooling ventilation.

Quietest in its class!
Quietest in its class!

The Honda EB10000 generator operates at a quiet noise level—73 decibels at 7 meters (equivalent to the noise of a vacuum cleaner). This low noise level is achieved through a large muffler that includes a punching pipe, a perforated mechanism that allows for the smooth release of exhaust gas.

Honda EB10000 Home Standby Installation

I hired a certified electrician who selected a proper

transfer panel. Without any modifications to the generator , it runs perfect. 

I keep the auto switch off, Be wary of reviews who encourage the infamous Honda Service bulletin #20. Every electrician I have asked about that gave the same answer. Never modify this GFCI design. What you should do is install the proper transfer box.

Buyer Beware.  EB10000 is Chinese made. Did not know that until I got it home and saw manufactured in china on gas tank sticker. For $5200 U.S. Dollars I think I should have gotten Japan made quality. My bad. Plus it is not fuel injected like the 7000i.

Beware....oil leak from Engine Casting and NO....help from Honda Service Rep....

I bought this very expensive generator EB10000 for the reason of being top of the line, I LOVE HONDA products, and I never wanted to experience a power outage every again and know Honda's products are excellent.  I have used this generator maybe 6 times.  Power outage here and there. I have taken very good care of it.  Matter a fact when I brought it in for service because I saw oil droppings they asked if I ever used it because it's so clean and looks new.  Well.... after weeks being at Mayberry's (the place I bought it) I have heard multiple times nothing is wrong with it.  I said...please check again because there should be no reason to have oil droppings while it's running.  See...when I notice something I get it checked out immediately because this is an investment.  You don't pay over $6500 for something and not call it an investment.  Especially if it's a generator that its run once or twice a year.  Again, I take excellent care in maintaining it.   

Today, I finally got the call from our local family business supply store- Mayberry's Sales and Service in Port Murray, NJ (highly rated supply store for over 33 years) and this phone call literally made me sick to my stomach.  They said the oil droppings is from a defected engine casting.  The mechanic Shawn and owner Bob stated he has been selling and servicing Honda for over 33 years; owning, selling, operating and servicing Honda Generators and he has NEVER seen this leak from this location; Engine Casting.  Very odd leak.  Never. 

Mayberry's were stepped up to the plate for us as being an amazing dealer and caring for their customers (homeowners) and called their Honda service rep and told them about this and they said..."it was purchased in 2014 out of warranty".  Mayberry's even took a picture showing them what it looks like and how place to be leaking oil.  The Honda service rep kept repeating himself..."well, it's out of warranty" and Bob from Mayberry's kept telling them that the product is in excellent condition, you can see it's hardly been used and that for over 33 years they have never seen this before and they sell tons of Honda products and most importantly we have excellent relationship with Honda and the homeowner loves Honda products.  Bob stated we ask for guidance on this because the homeowner's generator needs a new engine because of this defect or they will have to let this leak bleed oil for the rest of the life. The Honda Service Rep said..."can't help you".  Seriously...  

I buy high quality products.  I want to stay happy with Honda but, right now I am very disappointed in how this is being handled.  Especially hearing from Honda service rep, business owner and other people who use Honda products that this leak coming from engine casting is not common and definitely defected.  

I have a pix of where it's leaking if Honda needs it and Bob from Mayberry's is also willing to speak to anyone who can help solve this problem.  

Thank you!

This is an amazing generator. Runs a 3500sq ft home with no problem. No AC and have a gas hot water system but everything else is powered. Managing about 8 hours a tank. Home has LED lights too so draw is probably pretty low. Generator sat for 4 years when a snow storm hit New England. Dusted it off, cleaned the sparkplug and filled it with fresh gas and it turned at first try. Been running for 2 days with no problem. 

Must say I love the negative review that dings this generator for being made for commercial. Its like saying “I bought a dump truck and its a real pain to get the groceries in and out of the back.” Yes, as Honda mentions everywhere, this is a commercial generator. So you need an electrician that knows what they are doing. Using mine for residential and works like a charm.

     Our HONDA generator is powering our entire home through a third hurricane here in rural North  Florida where power restoration is a lower priority due to lack of population density.  We are able to run our full kitchen appliances while using our clothes washer and dryer simultaneously.  The normal central Air Conditioning cycling is unaffected.  The household operates via the Generator Transfer Switch as though on Duke Energy power, that is to say without closing one circuit to open another.  My 240 volt, 200 PSI shop air compressor is unaffected.  Sound level is acceptable .  Refueling time is dependent upon total electrical load.  The fuel level indicator reads about 1/2 level after 4 hours of running with routine usage.  Oven and clothes dryer operation will increase fuel consumption. I find an average run time is slightly >6 hours.  Purchased 14 years ago and still going HONDA strong!

The generator is great by function. But it just toooooo loud. We operating a food truck on this. The neighbor who lives 200 feet away can still hear this noise. We have to move to other locations because of this noise. 

Must be revised to work with home power

Bainbridge Island, WA
Type of use:  Home Back Up

This generator will NOT WORK out of the box for home power. It is designed to work for construction jobs where requirements are different. The system has GFI protected circuits. A GFI circuit works by comparing the outgoing current on the HOT to the current coming back on the NEUTRAL. A difference of as little as 6/1000 of an amp trips the circuit. If you have the NEUTRAL and GROUND bonded at 2 points (also called a loop) the current will share the return path between the GROUND and NEUTRAL wire. Since the GFI sees less current on the NEUTRAL than on the HOT, it will trip, making the generator useless for backup. So do NOT attach the generator's ground wire to the transfer switch at all, but use a ground rod instead. This requires a professional electrician to make the change AT THE GENERATOR.

There is NO MENTION of this issue in any of the sales literature or specification. It's not in the owner;s manual, and not even in the Shop Manual, which I have a copy of. This is a SERIOUS ISSUE and Honda needs to address this, and I think they ought to fix it for free on premisis (since they are so heavy.) I am shocked (no pun intended) that this issue is not addressed by Honda. A great product rendered virtually useless for home backup without professional revision and no hint of an issue.

Response from Honda

Hi Michael,

You are correct that the EB series generators are designed for construction and industrial use.  They are wired differently because they have to comply with different regulations.  The owners manual does mention this (page 41). 

Your local dealer can assist you with the options to make the generator work with a transfer switch.  Please discuss with your local dealer so they can address your specific application. 

Our customer relations team will contact you to discuss.

We use this generator for the cattle shows that we go to. The autothrottle is very useful and the power of the generator is very much. The generator is quite. I would like it to last longer on a full tank of fuel though.
