Rated 5 out of 5 by Generac is #1 Gererac was my first choice, spent a lot of dark days before I purchased the GP6500E. Plenty of features, easy setup. I chose this model especially for the Electric Start feature, and the efficient fuel consumption rate. I also matched this generator with the Generac Transfer Switch kit. April 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid & Effective A portable, reliable, economical, means of standby power. It is a bit louder than I like but wear earplugs if you are bothered by the noise level. This machine is used for jobsite applications such as a vacuum,portable halogen lighting and misc. charging. Follow the wattage charts for appliance applications to ensure you have the right size generator to handle the load required. Do not overload any machine even a Generac. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product for price Great value, easy setup and use..low maintenance.. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome generator I would tell everybody that you build a awesome generator,starts 2nd pull, low noise, it is bad to the bone and if you don't buy generac I feel sorry for you because I love mine March 27, 2015
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 This produc has great features Looks great assembles easy works great starts easy all electricle recepticles are easy to understand and use February 27, 2015
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.
