Honda EU1000i

6 posts in this topic

I just picked mine up today and I'm not familiar with this unit at all. Are there any secrets that I need to know as far as starting it in cold weather such as putting the choke in the half way position after a few pulls or do you just choke it and pull the rope until it starts? I would hate to be on the ice on a 20 below day and not be able to start it. Thanks. confused.gif

Congrats.....what a unit! I can't wait to find a good deal on the 1000 myself.

It's a Honda so it is going to start, if its really cold full choke would be my guess.

A lightly used Eu1000i sold on ebay yesterday for $455 plus shipping.

I had one and then up-graded (personal needs) to the 2000. In my case the 1000 always started on the first or second pull. I can't say that with the 2000 I now have. Anytime I was out with the temps around 0 or colder I always tried to keep mine in the wheel house to warm it up. When I use it at my hunting shack I always bring it in at night. I am not saying it won't start after being out in the cold all night but it sure starts a lot easier and it has to be better for it.

Great purchase, I use to sell these units at northern, They almost ALWAYS start, I say almost because if you dont put the right weight oil for the temp, or clean the gas out when not using it you could be in trouble. I ran into an issue where the Damned thing woudlnt stay running, turned out to be the low oil warning, it was maybe 1/4 inch low, put new oil in and walla it works great, Had it sitting out on RED in the wind and it started up just great, Might want to hit up a small engine place that sells these units or find the Battery cables online, They work great for charing the batteries.

I have a set of battery cables on order. I was on the Honda website the other day and if you buy from a dealer on line they will throw in the battery cables and a carrying bag. I'm gonna have to find some type of case to transport it in to keep the scratches off. I had one of those dheap chinnese generators that didn't like to start in the cold. I have been giving it a shot of ether to get it to start. I had enough of that.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
