Company Launches New Business Adjacency with Three All-New Digital Inverter Generators​

Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced the introduction of a new product line adjacency, Polaris POWER™. This introduction supports Polaris’ strategy to continue driving growth through adjacencies, bringing innovative Polaris products to an entirely new product space. Three all-new digital inverter generators built for outdoor enthusiasts are the first products in the Polaris POWER line.

“Polaris continually explores adjacent product markets that complement our existing offerings and strengthen our brand,” said Steve Eastman, Polaris vice president of parts, garments and accessories. “Digital inverter generators provide a convenient and reliable power source for today’s outdoor lifestyle consumers. Our new family of Polaris POWER products offer rugged and portable designs which are perfectly suited to meet their power needs.”

Polaris POWER Digital Inverter Generators deliver clean power in a fuel-efficient, quiet, and compact package. These highly portable units are the perfect power source for camping, hunting, tailgating or anything outdoors. Furthermore, the generators provide value to a homeowner as an emergency back-up power source.

Polaris is offering consumers three models – the P1000i, the P2000i and the P3000i – delivering 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 watts of maximum AC output, respectively. All models feature an economy throttle, which allows consumers to manage power output to maximize runtime. Across the family, these products are extremely quiet, running at a volume quieter than a typical conversation.

The P1000i and P2000i provide consumers parallel capable design, meaning multiple units can be linked to provide additional power, and are ideal for tasks such as powering a tailgate, running small appliances at campsites or powering work lights. The P3000i is built to handle larger jobs, such as powering an RV air conditioner, with its high power output and 21 hours of runtime.

Polaris POWER Digital Inverter Generators will be available at select Polaris dealers beginning in December.

Hopefully for Polaris, they are as good or better than the super quiet honda generators of the same variety.

Looks like they are trying to give Honda a run for their money. I wonder what kind of load they have to get 21 hours on the 3k unit. I doubt its even a 50% load.

Honda & Yamaha...

I don't really care for the two handle design versus what I have on my EU2000i. I am also curious about serviceability as changing oil and emptying out fuel from carb and fuel lines on Honda is really simple. I'll have to see if owners manuals are online yet.

Here are specs:

1000 Watt Digital Inverter Generator - Specs | Polaris Power P1000i

2000 Watt Digital Inverter Generator - Specs | Polaris Power P2000i

3000 Watt Digital Inverter Generator - Specs | Polaris Power P3000iE

Per spec sheet, 25% for 21hrs. 6.8hrs at rated load.

Maintenance looks very similar to Honda... heck even the fuel cap and air filter look like a clone off of a Honda.

1000 uses a Kipor KG144 motor (OHV)
2000 uses a Kipor KG158 motor (OHV)
3000 uses a Kipor KG205 motor (OHV)

It appears the 3000 is a rebranded Kipor model. The other models might just have different plastics.

Looks like Polaris gives a 3 year warranty versus 2 year from Kipor.
