With Honda, to parallel it appears you have to use their ‘companion’ generator, and according to the manual, paralleling a 2200 to a 2000 is not allowed… Personally, I have zero interest in putting at risk my pricy 2200 via an off-brand parallel experiment, but hey thats just me [emoticon]

No, you can use any of their generators. I have, including a 2200 with 2 2000s. Now I'm doing two 2200s and a 1000. It all works, provided it's all Honda. Pairing with another brand.. dk.

But hey, it's the internet, so don't trust me.

The good thing about YouTube is you can actually see something done, and running. Then you can make your own assumption. Like the saying goes "Seeing is believing." These videos I saw about pairing different generators pretty much validate what can be done, unlike someone here saying it can or can't be done.

If you ask the manufacturers they will always say "Same Same Only"
NOt only do not mix a Honda with a ____
But do not mix a 2000 with a 1000 (Though people do it often)
or to be more general an x000 with y000

I'd listen to the folks doing it. I would not recommend it (liability reasons) But I'd listen to the folks doing it.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
