The Ryobi RYi2000GRA has an 80cc Ryobi OHV 4-stroke engine that puts out 120V, uses gasoline, and puts out 1,600W while running and 2,000W at its peak. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a parallel kit), this power can be doubled by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The noise level of the inverter generator is set at 57 dBA (The noise level is lower than that of a refrigerator). Its pull-start system is similar to Ryobi’s EasyStart system (more information below ). Due to its 1.2-gallon fuel tank, the RYi2000GRA can run for up to 10.3 hours on a full tank (using about 0.12 GPH of fuel). The RYi2000GRA makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug your sensitive electronics into the AC outlets.
The control panel has the following two AC outlets: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).
There is a light that lets you know when the generator is too busy.From a safety point of view, the product has an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worrying.The Ryobi RYi2000GRA package comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual that will help you start the generator right away.It also comes with oil, a funnel, and a tool kit.
The Ryobi RYi2000GRA looks better than a typical open frame generator because it has a closed inverter generator (L18.5 x W12.5 x H19 in).The generator has a modern look and is easy to use when generating power for fun.The 52-pound weight of the RYi2000GRA lets you take it anywhere.Also, a handle that is built right into the case makes it easier to hold, which is a big help when moving the RYi2000GRA over any distance.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Ryobi-RYi2000GRA compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
Originally located in Japan, Ryobi Limited is a firm that has mostly specialized on electrical and automotive components during the course of its existence.However, their relatively new power tool division has gained popularity for the high caliber and dependability of its goods, which can now be found on the shelves of well-known merchants all over the world.The majority of the world’s production locations for Ryobi goods are the US, Germany, Japan, and China.
There is a warranty on the Ryobi RYi2000GRA for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Ryobi’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long their generators are covered.You can also call their customer service line at 1-800-525-2579.
