Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and Quite Had to replace my old generator (That was not a generac) that had for the last 15 years. Bought this from a local vendor. The unit started right up. I already have a generac home standby but It really uses the propane to run all night. I use this to just run fridge and furnace at night. The home standby was the best purchase ever. Soon as the power goes out the standby will start right up. I have the 6500 run just a few circuits when don't want the standby running. The 6500 has electric start which is nice. I was without power when 1st bought and it ran for 16 hours straight. No problems. I would recommend the generac name to anyone. After bought my home standby my inlaws bought one and love it. Highly recommend the portable 6500E. March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple set up and easy operation. We purchased this unit as a home back up power source to insure our furnace and well pump were operational during winter storms. I found this unit to be an easy set up for that purpose, and a whole lot more. Although the weather has been cooperative this winter so far, I've found the portability of this unit to be valuable in powering all sorts of tools and lights in my newly built pole building. I recommend this unit to anyone needing a standby power source. It's great! March 3, 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
