Engine

That’s true. The Hyundai HY2000siCa Generator has a powerful engine for a portable generator. The generator is of 125CC capacity. It is a 4-stroke OHV Engine with 3.8 HP and 5500 RPM. It has only one cylinder but that is understandable. It will provide people with 2000 watts of steady power and 2200 watts of power surge.

The generator is good for larger appliances of your home unlike some of the other portable generators. You can power your PC or a Flatscreen HDTV with it. It even comes good when you are running the fridge or a 1000-watt heater. You can even function a microwave oven with it. The generator can give you a limited but steady supply of power during emergencies as well.

Let’s Get into the Technicalities

This is an inverter-generator with a 7-liter gas tank. The Hyundai HY2000siCa portable Generator uses unleaded gasoline as fuel. You can run it for 5.5 hours at 50% of the load.The generator features Economy Mode which lets you conserve fuel. You will be compensated for the runtime with the power output. The generator uses a recoil start to power itself. This is a downside according to me after seeing the price range of the unit and the functioning engine size. It has two outlets of 120 volt and one outlet for 12V (DC) for charging the batteries.

Final Thoughts

Hyundai HY2000si portable GeneratorOut of the many portable generators in the market, Hyundai HY2000siCa is by far one of the best if not the best considering the customer reviews. To use the portable generator correctly, you need to first understand what it can or cannot do. Compared to a Yamaha or a Honda generator of the same power level. This one functions better and is priced better too. I’d personally give it 4 out of 5 stars after using this generator for 3 years now.
