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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value for the price I put a couple of hours on it this weekend and seems good. A little noisy but for a home back up generator it will be good for the once or twice a year we use it. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Generac We brought it because we got tried of loosing power all the time. I have used it yet but I know it will work just fine. I fill but just having it. I will recommend it. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great right out of the box I was amazed on easy everything was and how well it was all explained. Setup took less than 10 minutes and you just have to fill with the oil supplied and fill with gas. Getting the gas took the longest time of the whole setup process. Started on the first pull and ran like a champ. It runs quiet and and with very little vibration. I purchased this unit because I am sick out power outages and this is the best investment made for that problem. It will run everything that is needed when your power goes out, to get you by without damage to your home or your pocketbook. Best Investment I ever made, don't know what took me so long to get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Powered everything I wanted and more. Everything you need at a good price and easy to get set up. July 16, 2014
