Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for a high quality product This unit has everything I need for home backup. It's a heavy machine but the pivot handle makes it easy to move around. I also like the never flat wheels. The only drawback is the lack of clear instructions for changing oil and draining fuel. The instructions are vague for a novice like me. I need more detail and better drawings. Well worth the price I paid for home backup. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Its like a good insurance policy! Very pleased with this product ,starts very easy and quiet. I have done a lot of research, and borrowed generators, I'm so glad I went with a Generac. September 22, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peace of mind After losing all of our food twice, I knew that wasn't going to happen again. Great generator. Starts easy and a reliable machine from a well known manufacturer. September 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great generator purchased for work site worked great let it sit for a while and still turns on great. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked perfectly I was contacted by a neighbor that our area had lost power, and bought a GP6500 on my way home. I followed the operator manual, it started right away and I was able to save the food in our freezer and fridge. In my mind it has paid for itself. This is just the right size to cover critical needs during summer and winter storms. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Did a lot of homework and in the end made the right choice I looked at a lot of generators did a lot of homework and in the end I think I made the right choice. This product has all the features I was looking for and at the right price. Have always had good luck with Generac products so I will keep buying. August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It exceeds my expectations I have given this generator a 5 star rating based on my experience with it so far, and so far I haven't needed to use it for the reason it was purchased; to supply emergency power during electrical outages.That having been said, I am impressed with what I have seen so far. The unit arrived in perfect condition, and assembly was easy. I was concerned by the advertised weight at first, but the carton was easily handled by two people, and after assembly, it is easy to move from storage to the driveway where it will be used.The battery was charged when it arrived, and it started right up and ran steadily for about 15 minutes.I had minor difficulty adding the engine oil, in that I had to hunt around for a long necked funnel to use to pour the oil into the unit, no big deal.And, the instructions indicate that you should check the oil level as oil is being added, so as not to overfill the unit. I did this, only to read later that the recommended oil capacity is 1 quart, and exactly one quart of oil was supplied. It would have saved me a few minutes if the instructions said "Pour the 1 quart of enclosed oil into the oil fill plug". Also, no big deal.Finally, it would be nice to have a compartment or something on the unit to hold the battery charger. I solved that problem with a bag attached to the frame with zip ties.If this is all I can find to complain about, I would say that I'm pretty satisfied.I trust that this unit will perform as well when the need arises as it has so far.
