Battle of the brands: Why Yamaha is the biggest name in generators

Back in 1973, when Yamaha first started producing generators, nobody could have imagined that 50 years on they would be building gensets that make manufacturers like Honda quake in their boots.

But today Yamaha is one of the biggest names in generators. If you’re looking for portable generators for camping/caravanning, they’ve got it. Rugged, powerful workhorses for the jobsite? Reliable, hassle-free companions for your mobile business? They’ve got it. The fact is, Yamaha designs and manufactures just such a wide range of portable generators suitable for so many different applications. And they make it look easy.

So what is it about Yamaha generators that makes them exceptional?

Worldwide experience and motoring genius. Over 50 years of worldwide experience puts Yamaha on a different playing field to most manufacturers. In fact, the Yamaha innovators don’t just meet the benchmark when it comes to designing, testing and manufacturing engines for generators; they set it.

When you think about it, we shouldn’t be surprised that Yamaha generators are amongst the best on the market. After all, their engines lead the way for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, wave runners and golf cars. It’s from these exciting fields that Yamaha can feed expertise and ideas into all its product lines, including generators.

Yamaha inverter generator. This piece of kit alone is enough to put Yamaha at the top of the list. Yamaha’s portable range of 4-stroke petrol powered inverter generators tick all the boxes for clean, high quality are electricity in a compact, light-weight package. They’re not only safe to use and easy to transport, they provide reliable power for almost any job – whether that be four-wheel-driving, fishing, DIY with sensitive power tools or backup power during a blackout.

Super quiet power. True, most generator manufacturers will boast about their whisper quiet performance. But with Yamaha, it’s the real deal. The proof is in Noise Block – Yamaha’s acoustically engineered sound reduction system. This advanced technology comprises various sound absorbing materials, moulded cases, an intake silencer, fibre glass insulation, plus uniquely designed mufflers and fans. Together, this delivers virtually silent running without compromising on the performance of the generator. This technology is included as standard in the latest range of Yamaha portable generators, without busting your budget.

Serious power. Yamaha generators aren’t only for campers or recreation. Check out the powerful range of Yamaha generators for sale to jobsites too. These robust generators combine the best in Yamaha’s engineering with a long-range fuel tank, safety features and brushless alternator to provide power you can count on when the job relies on it. We’ve got customers who run their mobile food businesses or coffee vans on the Yamaha 6300W inverter generator every day and have been doing so for over two years straight!

Double up. We won’t deny we’re fans of big power, which is why it’s hard to go past the TwinTech function on Yamaha generators. Also known as the parallel use function, TwinTech lets you hook up two generators of the same specification to enjoy almost double the power output. Give it a try with the Yamaha EF2000iS and EF24000iS – you won’t go back!

When it comes to the crunch, you can’t go wrong with a Yamaha generator – they simply are the best in the business. And with Yamaha continuously raising the bar, the benefits to generator users in Australia will only get bigger and better. So watch this space!

    Can anyone tell me where the gennys are actually made?

    I suppose it is china like every other thing in this world?

      Hi Don, thanks for your question. Yamaha headquarters are in Japan and for most of their generator models, they are still manufactured in Japan. However when the Japanese Tsunami hit in 2011, Yamaha (like many other manufacturers) needed to expand operations into other parts of Asia. So a few of their models now come out of a factory in China. Honda has done the same, including manufacturing out of places like Taiwan.
      We would say that from our experience there has been no compromise in the quality of products since this expansion of manufacturing beyond Japan and that Yamaha & Honda are the premium brands in portable generators. Thanks.

    Can you tell me if the AVR system on the EF7200E Yamaha will deliver safe power to domestic household appliances.
    I currently have a 2 kVA Yamaha inverter gen set and am very pleased with the 6 or 7 years reliable service it has given me, but it while delivering stable power to the household falls a tad short of running everything so looking for a second unit capiable of meeting my needs.
    Regards

      Hi Craig, great question. The Yamaha Inverter Generators deliver pure sine wave power which is cleaner than the power output out of your home outlets. The Yamaha EF7200E Generator is fitted with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) meaning it reduces the voltage fluctuation to +/- 2.5%, making it suitable to run all your domestic appliances. The EF7200E is our most popular model for household backup power and as long as your power requirements are less than 6000 watts, then this unit would be ideal for your described application. Thank you
