Can the Canadian purchased Champion 2000w inverter be paralleled? I read that similar Canadian Hondas and Yamahas cannot because of our electical code.
Thanks,
Radar.

Yes, look at the front and you can see where the connections are made

Parallel an inverter?????????? If you mean generator then yes they can but you can also get the parallel kit for Honda or Yamaha on-line. Just because it doesnt carry the holy CSA sticker doesnt mean its bad.

What I meant was INVERTER GENERATOR and the reason for asking is if the Canadian model cannot be parelleled, as is the case with the Canadian Honda model, then I will purchase it in the U.S. Otherwise they are just as inexpensive at Costco in Canada.

Yes the Champions are good but correct me if I'm wrong, but they dont have electric start, recoil start only. If thats not an issue then not a bad deal for the money. I'm purchasing a whole bunch of stuff in the US too, I know it costs me money to drive down there but I'm saving over $160 on one stock waterer and I need 3 of them, so I guess my gas is paid for. Too bad that the Canadian dealers need to make such a mark up an a lot of stuff!

I read that due to Canadian electrical code, selling generators with the parallel port ability is prohibited.

I'd consider just buying them in the US.

And they dont even care at the border! They are just interested in collecting the GST.

First you need the holes to put the kit wires into. Canadian 1000w Hondas have them but the 2000w ones don't.

The Canadian eu1000i is parallel capable. Take a look at the last feature listed for the EU1000iKC2.

I bought both my Champions at Costco.
The cheapest parallel kit I could find for them was Costco Online, around $99.
I think it was shipped from BC. in 3 days.
Great setup, can't be beat!
