Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality machine After a 3 day outage this summer, I upgraded from a 5000 watt generator to the 6500 watt Generac and installed a larger transfer switch so I could power more items during our frequent power outages. The machine is obviously well built. It has a small footprint and it's easy to move and started on the first pull. Based on other reviews I thought it might be a little noisy. But it actually seems quieter than my old one. November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product! I just bought this product last week. The set up was easy and running it is even simpler. Definitely a quality product I would refer to others. November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we needed for small home back up This is just what we needed for a back up generator. We live in a very wooded rural area and power outages in the winter can be brutal when temps drop below minus 20. The GP6500 is perfect because it is portable and reliable. Now when we lose power during a winter storm we grab the generator out of the garage and plug it into the transfer switch and it keeps us and our house from freezing. October 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product is light and robust. We got a unit that gave us a trailer mounted united that ran all equipment, pump controllers and, tools we have in our trucks with room to grow. October 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit I live in an area that is rural and the power goes out a few times a year. A month ago we had a storm and lost power for about 24 hours. I had a little generator but it was only good for a couple lights and t.v.. Problem is I have a refrigerator, a freezer, and a well pump I need power to as well. Next week I went looking for a bigger more reliable generator and found it with my generac 6500. After I got it home I was actually hoping to have another storm knock the power out so I could see how it would do. Wasnt long and it happened! It was only about a week later another storm came through and knocked the power out for about 7 hours. Long enough to try out the new generac. Rolled it out easy enough even though it's pretty heavy, pulled once and it was running like a champ. Plugged in the necessities and it handled everything. It was so nice to have in that situation. This winter I plan on having a transfer switch so I can run everything from lights to heat. I'd recommend this generator if your looking for one. September 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Generator The power to my house has been pretty reliable up until this year. We have has three outages for extended periods of time so far this year. I have a well and a freezer full of beef, so I bought this generator to power my house during these outages. The power has not gone out since I bought it, but it does run all my appliances and the well pump without any problems when I tested it. It is worth having the insurance of stand-by power when it is needed. September 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thiis is the one I have the Elec start model, the battery holds for many months with out a recharge. If you do need to use the rewind starter, it starts on the 1st or 2nd pull. September 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, easy to use Perfect for occasional power outages or camping, easy to use, easy to start, just a great little generator August 28, 2015
