Decibels - October 31, 2009, 01:49 PM

I know NOTHING about decibels - I am comparing two generators by decibels. One is 53-58 and the other is 60-67. The person is telling me that the 60-67 is pretty quiet....

Im looking into Gnerators for the track and I an just doing comparo's...I dont want to have on that is OBNOXIOUSLY loud...

After using the Honda 2000i at NJMP I bought the Yamaha 2000 Inverter. Also, for good measure, I had the dealer put them side by side and the Yammi just stole the show.

Yeah..Thats what I heard..But they are SO DAMN EXPENSIVE!! That one is about 1000.00!! Von and I were having this conversation and theres a post about it on the WERA board. What other cheaper options are there? Stickboy.com used to sell them but they no longer sell those generators.

And I know..."you get what you pay for.." But I think there are different levels that these are used. The Yami's and the Hondas will last a HELL of a long time and can take abuse..

Theres...

High Use - Racers, active campers, etc.
Med Use - Trackday whores, camping
Low Use - Self explaintory

Pull the man-pon out of your butt and get the quality Yammi. Yeah, spending the $ sucks but it will be worth the extra cabbage....

I will be taking on as many track days as you and we need something that will not break down. We all know that the reliability will shine on the first pull without hesitation.
Besides, buying either the Yammi or Honda once vs. a generic 2-3X

Kev posted a link for the Yammi being ~$919. I paid $989 at Loudoun MS.
