Yamaha, once limited to recreational generators, has now launched this largest, most advanced, and powerful inverter generator for home use. The all-new EF6300iSDE quietly cranks out up to 6300 watts with dual voltage level, and the ‘eco’ mode definitely pays off well for its high upfront cost. More so, it is Carb complaint. Well, we all know that Yamaha was green when green wasn’t cool.
People are impressed with the single touch electric start, its fuel efficiency, and the remote control feature makes it unique to its competitors. In a very short period, this generator has earned a 5 out of 5 rating from 29 extremely happy customers.
But before you buy you should read about the features, benefits and hear some real-life user feedback (including complaints) to ensure you make the right choice before buying this generator.
If you can afford it, it’s smooth, it’s quiet, and it’s pleasant to use. It only sounds like a husky sewing machine, unlike the mainstream competitors, with their droning noise. So now if you take a walk, you won’t hear it even from the next block, and could actually have a conversation in normal voices just 5 feet away.
Let me say up front that this generator is heavy, not surprising as it produces a hefty 6300watt. It comes with a wheel kit, so it is easy to roll. One wheel has a lock to stop it from rolling, when needed. The Twin Bar aids in lifting, and makes the transportation fairly easy but it would have been nice to have swiveling wheels to turn it.
3. Fuel Efficient
Did I mention the “ECO” mode? If you are hesitant to pay a little extra, then give its clever fuel-efficient design another consideration as the eco mode slows down the engine speed to match the minimal load. The versatile ‘dual voltage’ feature makes the generator more economical. Moreover, the fuel gauge doesn’t require you to open the cap to look inside with a flashlight.
4. Electric Start
Starting that generator with the pull cord could be quite a chore. With Yamaha EF6300iSDE’s single touch electric start – an effortless starting – even your wife will not need to pull the cord hard enough anymore.
5. Thoughtful Design
This specially engineered, modern design generator employs an automotive low oil shutoff feature that automatically protects the engine from low oil damage. The Hour Meter automatically tracks the maintenance, giving a further peace of mind.
6. Wireless Remote Control
In addition, Yamaha has been kind enough to include the Wireless Remote Control, facilitating to start and stop the generator from up to 66 feet away. You should not have to, in my opinion, trouble yourself in walking to the generator anyways when you have just spent about $3700 for your generator.
I sourced these real user comments from Amazon, and other credible websites. These people did not send me these reviews in any way. For the sake of transparency I just wanted you to know that. You can view all the reviews for this generator on Amazon at the link just below. I just thought I could save you some time by placing some snippets here.
Review 1 (positive 29 out of 29)
“…I used this genset the other day for 12 hours when the power got knocked out. It worked excellent and it is very, very, quiet. I could not hear it in my bedroom (unlike my old contractor genset). The eco setting work very well. The genset only burned 3 gallons of gas in 12 hours…..”

Review 2 (positive 4 out of 5)
“…Some of the other reasons this inverter comes in at the top is the 120/240V selector switch, electric start, remote start option and standard wheel kit. The Yamaha EF6300iSDE is their most advanced inverter generator ever that quietly cranks out up to 6300 watts of pure sine wave inverter power at 120 or 240 volts…..”

Review 3 (negative 5 out of 5)
“…Let me say up front that this generator is heavy! My Generac weighed 90 lbs with no fuel. The Yamaha arrived strapped to a pallet at 250 lbs. Thankfully I paid the extra $50 for liftgate service. If you order one, be sure to ask about liftgate service. If not, that big truck will pull up in front of your house and the driver will push it to the edge of his bed and let you take it from there…”

The Yamaha is on sale, so if you have some savings and don’t want to feel powerless during the next outage, it’s an ideal time to pull your trigger. Yamaha EF6300iSDE doesn’t restrict to the recreational usage but is powerful enough to provide back up to homes; power lights, a pellet stove (for heat), a microwave oven, computers, fans, refrigerator, coffee maker. It is quieter, has an electric start, a remote control, and of course reliable too.
I would suggest taking a good look at this model and keeping tabs on the price tag of this generator; Amazon do tend to drop a few dollars now and then.
