Honda's premium series EM generators have important features for demanding work on the jobsite or for home backup. The EM5000S3C has convenient 12 VDC electric start with enclosed low maintenance battery, and the Honda exclusive iAVR (Intelligent Auto Voltage Regulation) system for stable power delivery and available extra wattage for special conditions (7000 watts for 10 seconds to start larger equipment). A voltage Selector Switch allows both 120 V and 240 V output, or total output to a single 120 V outlet for powering devices with larger wattage requirements, and the EM5000S3C runs all day without stopping (up to 11.2 hours continuous running time @ 50% load, 8.1 hours at full load with large 24 litre tank). Safety and protection features include a full tubular steel frame with isolation mounts, Oil Alert™ system, USDA-Qualified Spark Arrestor/Muffler and a full 3 year residential and commercial warranty.
• Powerful, easy-start Honda iGX390 commercial-grade engine
• Auto-throttle further extends running time by automatically adjusting engine speed to idle when under no load
• 12 VDC battery charging capability with optional charge cable
• Standard Wheel kit with Positive Lock Folding Handles for easy transportation and convenient, compact storage
• Cold Climate Technology aids continuous running in cold weather conditions
As a testament to their quality and reliability, all Honda generators come with a warranty of 36 months for non-commercial use and 36 months for commercial use.

Why Buy a Honda Generator?
Honda generators are powered by quiet, efficient, easy to start 4-stroke Honda engines. This offers many advantages, including cleaner and quieter operation, fewer fill ups, reduced ownership costs and lower emissions.
Our latest inverter models are smaller, lighter and quieter than ever before, and many Honda generators produce voltage that is smoother and more consistent than other commercially available power sources.
Honda Advantage Technologies
Today, Honda generators are at work around the world – from equatorial jungles to research posts north of the Arctic Circle. Over 30 years of power-equipment development by Honda engineers have given rise to a varied line of hard-working generators with exclusive technologies and features.
All Honda Generators meet or exceed CSA (Canadian Standards Association) safety and EPA emissions standards. Not all manufacturers of portable generators can make this claim.
Cold Climate Technology
Honda's industry leading "Cold Climate Technology" is specifically designed for our cold Canadian winters. Our exclusive breather heater system helps keep the crankcase ventilation tube free of ice formation and helps prevent generator shutdown.
Honda's Super Quiet portable generators feature exhaust and muffler technology that give them lower noise ratings within the 48-60-decibel level (dB-A) ranges, so you'll never have to worry about disturbing your neighbours – or your own peace and quiet.
Dual Voltage Selection
Honda’s high-output generators offer the best in electrical standby power and are available in 5000 to 6500-watt categories. The dual voltage inverter configuration allows you to power up appliances that require 120 or 240 volts.
