Yamaha Announces All-New EF2400iSHC Generator
A Great Recreational Activity Companion and Perfect
for at-home Backup in the Off-Season
Cypress, Calif. – Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A.,
introduces a High Current version of the top selling
EF2400iS – the new EF2400iSHC. Compact, lightweight
and quiet while still powerful, reliable and with
low emission, the Yamaha EF2400iSHC generator is
perfect for camping, tailgating, powering workshop
equipment or at home as back-up during a power outage.
From small power tools to appliances such as a refrigerator
or microwave oven, the new Yamaha EF2400iSHC starts
appliances quicker thanks to High Current technology
and special Field Effect Transistors in the electronic
controller. These features combine to increase
the surge output, helping the new EF2400iSHC respond
more quickly for greater big-appliance starting
capacity and longer run time for all uses.
A powerful 171cc engine and Yamaha’s industry leading
Smart Throttle, which automatically adjusts the
engine speed to match the load, allowing the EF2400iSHC
to run at a slower engine speed resulting in quieter
running and maximum fuel efficiency – up to 8.6
hours at 1/4-capacity load on one tank of fuel.
To ensure the EF2400iSHC retains its portability
– small and lightweight (merely 75 pounds) – without
sacrificing strength or reliability, a die cast
aluminum frame and aluminum flywheel was used.
Additionally, the EF2400iSHC has an actual noise
level range of only 53~60 decibels (quieter than
normal speech) – giving consumers a lightweight,
quiet running and durable generator.
The EF2400iSHC will see most of its work done in
a portable shop, at the track, RVing, tailgating,
at the hunting cabin and during other recreation
or leisure activities, but its real mettle is proven
at-home during a power outage. The EF2400iSHC
uses Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to produce high-quality
electricity, which is as clean if not cleaner than
the power supplied by public utility companies.
PWM means consumers can use this generator with
confidence as a power source for computers, variable
speed power tools and appliances with built-in computer
functions – perfect for charging cell phones and
other sensitive electronics.
With a single side-mounted control panel that puts
all controls on one surface and a detachable rear
panel for easy access to service and maintenance
points, the new EF2400iSHC is simple to use and
easy to maintain. Like all recently introduced
Yamaha generators, the EF24000iSHC meets the strictest
emission standards in the country making it legal
in all fifty states including California.
The EF2400iSHC will be available for purchase in
January at local Yamaha generator dealers; retail
price is $1,479.00. To see Yamaha’s entire
