Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to assemble and starts right up. Got the generator the eve of the 2015 blizzard. Setup was a snap and starting was even easier. This was a replacement for a older generator I had and between the two units genarac wins hands down, would recommend it to anyone even if your not handy with mechanical things. my grandma could put this together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product, started right up, easy to use and move around January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Bought this product as emergency back-up generator for home to provide power to refrigerator/freezer and well during outages. Excellent value and dependability. Will upgrade to home standby generator next year to power whole home and move this to garage for powering tools. January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Backup Genset I'm really pleased with my Generac 6500e generator. I replaced a 14 year old unit with this one and I feel like I now have a reliable back up when the storms come and the power goes out. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit has everything I need to keep the essentials of my home running during an outage!!! This has been a great unit right out of the box. Easy to assemble, simple easy to read starting and usage instructions, portable and enough power to maintain my home in a safe and functional state during a power outage. Easy electric start for my wife if I am away on business. Great generator, bought 2 more for my children's homes. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Up & Running in Minutes I bought this generator after researching online. Brand name carries a lot of weight in the generator field so I decided on a Generac and was not disappointed. Had the generator out of the box, set up, break in oil added and running in less than 30 minutes. One week after I brought it home we had the seasons first snowfall and the electricity went out. Hadn't had time to get the electrician to do the hookup to my service panel yet so I ran a drop cord in from outside and plugged in the TV. Watched television until the lights came back on in about an hour. Worked flawlessly and can't wait to see how it works running through the service panel. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything you will need I bought this in the fall of 2012 after Katrina ripped through the Northeast. Our area was ten days without power being restored. We suffered through three days without power before getting this. Our home water supply comes from a well. No power, no water. Or heat, or showers, or communications. This unit has enough power to run the well, satellite, refrigerators, freezers, lights, coffee pot, microwave, televisions, and the list goes on. I just pulled it outside and started it up again for the second time this year. It powered up on the second pull and was running strong. I never worry about losing power now. Get the biggest one you can afford, but the 6500 will get you through any power outage with minimal disruption to your life. No regrets on this purchase. Quality machine. November 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for the features We chose the 6500E over other models due to it's many positive reviews from multiple sites and its features for the price. I especially like the number of available 20 amp outlets plus the 20 foot power cord. I specifically wanted the electric start and the automatic voltage regulation, and the rubber outlet covers are a great addition!Cons: The set-up instruction card had several minor errors and omissions. For example - the set up instructions did not mention that the fuel line was disconnected at the shut-off valve and needed to be connected by the owner. Good thing I saw it during my initial inspection.Suggestions: An onboard voltage meter (and maybe a manual voltage adjustment) would be a great addition, so the output voltage can be monitored without needing a separate meter. And it would be nice to have an onboard power meter showing amperage draw. But, for the price this model is perfectly adequate for our needs.Unfortunately, the week we received our generator, the price dropped $50. Wish I had waited one more week. November 20, 2014
