Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features and price Added oil and gas , one pull and it started right up . I'm a first time generator buyer and very happy with my purchase.Thank you June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by First time Generator Purchase Bought the Generac 6500E as a back up for my home. I live in New England and Power outages during the winter can be frequent. Spent 3 weeks without power the year before last and Swore that wouldn't happen again. Fortunately Did not loose power this year, but I am prepare now for the future.Product is reasonably priced, starts right up with the push of a button and runs without a hiccup. Only thing is I wish that it gave the option for alternative fuels, such as propane. Would be a nice back up incase gas stations are closed. April 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Made in the USA , and it's availability, made this a great choice. With the ever increasing unpredictability of the weather, I found it necessary to have a generator on hand to ensure comfort and the ability to cook and keep perishable products from spoil. To relax in the relative comfort and glow of my home while I look down the street and see darkness reinforces my belief that purchasing this generac generator was a great idea. April 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth every dollar invested! After losing power for 9 days during Sandy, and just missing the bullet during the winter of 2014, we decided to quickly purchase this generator to avoid future problems. Based on earlier research I looked for a Generac and found one by luck at a local dealer. The generator is VERY easy to start and use, and powers almost our entire home - no need or a full house unit! Excellent price - including transfer box installed about $2000 total - well worth it for peace of mind! April 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good output This product is a big improvement from my old one. Much better gas capacity and seems quieter. A little heavy, but it is on wheels. Great product. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has very good features Bought a GP6500 generator after a ice storm in Michigan and two days before Christmas. Family was kept warm for the 8 days without power. Satisfied Completely!! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Quality Generator I took delivery in the early part of December 2013. If I did not own a tractor with a loader, there would have been problems as the trucking company shows up in a tractor-trailer full size rig.I had no trouble assembling the unit. However the oil that was shipped with the generator had contaminants at the bottom of the bottle. The debris never made it into the crank case as I was pouring and checking the level and caught it.I had occasion to use the unit this past week as our electric was out for 5 hours and the outside temperature was 11 above. We ran the whole house on the unit but did not use the electric stove. When the 220v well pump would kick on the lights would flicker slightly; the generator never appeared to be working hard.I am well satisfied with the performance and quality of this unit.
