Not sure about other models, but I know the Honda EU2200i at least has an "in between" position on the fuel/ignition switch so you can stop the fuel flow while letting the engine run to drain the carburetor.

There's the difference.  Complete purge of fuel system is necessary to store them.  Good to know.  The two I bought were junk.  The Powerhorse was electric start which was ok, but not really needed - it started remote from a keyfob or with a turn key.  The problem with that model was the "automatic" choke didn't work well and no manual override.

For a system used with a marching band I recommend a 3000W rig - buy once cry once - probably won't outgrow it for a while.

See if you can find a used Midas easy-tilt. They are THE best.

I just got my first “big console” - SSL L200, and want to get an EZ-Tilt. There’s a lot of old threads, but TMB seems to still make them. Pro-x has one for a fraction of the cost.

The big difference seems to be the ski legs on the TMB - better for sliding, if needed. 

Has anyone used the cheaper Pro-X?  Are there any others I should know about in 2021?

Thank you,

Nathanael

The issue is the fuel shut off valve is ganged together with the ignition switch.  To completely purge the fuel system for storage is impossible without modification.  Leaving fuel in the fuel pump is where the problems start.  Manually draining the carburetor is simple, but it takes more than that with the Generac and Powerhorse models.

You must be the only person that's ever had a problem with an EU2000/2200 in all of history lol

That could be - the brands I had problems with were Generac and Powerhorse.  I have mucho experience with 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines.  Perhaps if I had went with a Honda results would have been different.  My assumption is that all the small suitcase rigs are designed similar for fuel system.  Maybe not.  :)

My expectation is that they can be stored for 6 months or more and fire up without ether and a battle.  Both the Generac and Powerhorse say they need to be ran monthly - going past about 45 days and they won't start easily.

I was being silly, and trying to learn a little bit at the same time.  Which I did.  The image of a kid with a generator racing to catch up with the tuba's appealed to my juvenile sense of humor.


I did want to share this from the game 2 weeks ago.  These guys are amazing https://youtu.be/X3FvnPFS-_w

I can't say if it's an audible difference or not at a distance.  Open frame type run cooler and are far easier to maintain.  Putting a carpeted cart on it's side in front of the generator makes for some good quiet operation.  100' 12ga extension cord and my EB2800i is inaudible at garden weddings.  EU2200 suitcase style are not as reliable as the conventional style - tank is oriented in front of the engine in the small ones, which necessitates a fuel pump.  Storing them more than about 45 days without running them and there's problems with fuel system.  I owned two of the small 2000W suitcase models and got rid of both as there were storage and starting issues that the larger generators do not have.  Open frame also have larger fuel tanks and are easier to integrate into equipment load with other gear.

Ultimately it's an individual choice.  :)

Which band? My brother was active (because all 3 of his sons played) with the Trumbull CT Golden Eagle Marching Band. I helped plan their PA, and went to lots of competitions.

The open frame are louder...the EU2200 or 3000 are damn quiet and super portable.
