Honda Power Equipment EG5000C


Honda Power Equipment



Introducing the economical Honda EG series generators – high output, dual-voltage, rugged and reliable generators. Honda's latest commercial-grade GX390 engine is the source of reliable, easy-starting and more fuel efficient power for the EG5000C. The addition of exclusive Digital Automatic Voltage Regulator (DAVR) technology provides improved voltage stability and increased performance. A standard voltage selector switch allows total output to be split between 120 V and 240 V outlets, or routed through the 120 V outlets for powering equipment with larger wattage requirements. A large 24 litre tank with fuel gauge, Oil Alert® protection and full steel frame make the EG5000C a sturdy, low-maintenace worker on every job assigned to it, at home or on the jobsite.
