I asked a similar question several months ago. I had a Yamaha 2400 that I liked, but it didn't fit in my compartment, so I sold it. Ended up with the Honda 2000. Reason? - The Honda has an engine that is 20cc bigger than the Yamaha 2000 and the Honda has a 30 minute rating at 2000 watts. The Yamaha doesn't. I figured that the Honda had more surge capacity. I am glad to see that the Yamaha will run the Polar Cub, but I didn't want to push it.
