Well - who would have thought the day would come when Honda's 'Old Faithful' would disappear off the market?

After a long service life in New Zealand of over 10 years, Honda Power Equipment's best loved EU20i generator is now out of production.

This product would surely be one of our biggest selling and most reliable generators, happily providing 1000's of hours of use for anyone from a farmer to camper to contractor.


As generator technology improves - things can only get better. Ask anyone from the 'old days' and they'll tell you that a 2kW generator 30 years ago weighed tonnes (not literally, but you get my drift). So the skilled engineers at Honda's design centre in Japan have come up with ways to make Honda's portable generator pack a greater punch, with better features.


Honda is shortly launching a new model, the Honda EU22i, which will be available to New Zealand consumers early 2018. This will have more power than the EU20i without compromising on weight or performance, and will be at an even better price.

And, it's still not made in China.

What about my old EU20i?

Like any of Honda's line up, your EU20i will still be serviceable for probably decades to come. Honda doesn't have a great name for no reason - after all you can still get parts for products that are 30 years old. So there's no reason to worry, keep your trusty EU20i running just like normal.


OMC are privileged to have great stock of the old EU20i model, which is now available at a clearance price - just click here to check it out and to order.
