no rival, op. i doubted this gen way back, got one 4 years ago. i never changed any major thing up until now, apart from oil, fuel holes, and just 1 time major servicing up until now, though depend on how heavy you use it.

The point is buy the original, go for the authorized dealer.

USA.. All my generators are in Hawaii and i have since fled that place as of November 2013.. I got a new place in another state in USA where there is regular metered electricity, so no genrator here.. I only bought new Honda grass cutting equipment for my new house here..
My neighbours by my place in hawaii are keeping my generator there. I think they use it for washing machine and then they use a smaller one for their solar backup.. My house there is abandoned to the bush and the neighbors keep my valuables..

If i get a generator for Nigeria, it will be a Honda EU2000. But for now i have started a solar power kit for Nigeria.. If i visit and the place proves to draw me there regularly, then i will get a honda generator to back up the solar kit..
Also by now, i have over ten years experience with honda and know how to do all of the basic servicing by myself.. My neighbor in hawaii worked as a mechanic for the local Honda equipment dealer and taught me a lot when servicing mine.. He also did solar installations and taught me that as well when servicing mine.. Honda is easy to self service because nothing major goes wrong for a very long time. Just change the oil and air filter as ordered, keep an eye on the spark plug and clean the spark arrestor if your model comes with one.. The carburator usually goes bad before the engine and we just service the carburator or get a new one for very cheap after 4 to 5 years of daily use.

Honda is more expensive but cheaper in the long term over 10 years.. Some people can buy a new cheap generator every year or two, and constantly spend to repair it, that will add up to more than the cost of one honda generator used and serviced for ten years...

Honda

Shhhhuuuuooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
So ooo oooo dem dey use generator for USA

Have you guys ever seen a Ford generator. My bro uses the 2.5kva variant and I can confidently say the fuel consumption is just like tiger gen with average load such as freezer and TV. The gen has the ford eco-boost technology, and I doubt if the gen has ever developed any fault before, apart from Honda other Chinese gen Na fluke, get an original American gen and you would be rest assured that it won't give you any issues for years to cone

Yamaha is the best. Over a decade and still rocking.

Be extremely careful when buy a petrol generator in Nigeria because the imitations are far in excess of the originals. Many of the dealers sell unbranded generators. They only apply stickers to give them names according to their intentions. The quality of a generator is in its ALTERNATOR. Ensure that the one you buy has the manufacturer's name clearly engraved on the alternator. Good luck!

Not to deviate from the options you gave but since we are talking generators.
Yamaha for me is the best not the fake ones but genuine. I bought mine a small 950Va ET950(I pass my neighbour) in 2011 from john holts back then in Ikeja for 40k(back then oo). I swear that gen is outa this world. Till today I only draw it maximum 2 times and it starts, like everything I own it is treated with the utmost care as of it were a human being, because I don't know much about internal workings of generators the only time I know it is due for servicing is when I draw it more than twice before it starts or when the output current starts slightly flickering, I call idowu my technician he comes and do the needful and it powers on still like I just bought it. I was so impressed I shelled out 150k for a 2.0kva EF2600 august last year and since then all I do is change oil daz ull. The fuel economy on both generators are the best I have ever seen. Walai Yamaha try for their gen. My only problem is they are too expensive.
