Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 180reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, easy to use Perfect for occasional power outages or camping, easy to use, easy to start, just a great little generator August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the generator!! I purchased my GP6500 primarily to run power tools. I have a large lot which makes it impractical to use an extension cord. I opened the box and followed the instructions on assembly which was easy (putting oil in the machine, wheels on etc.). I put gas in it and it started flawlessly. I have run a 15 amp table saw and shop vac simultaneously with no problem. In addition, I plugged in a power washer and ran it for hours without an incident. When you start it and hear it run you can tell it is a quality machine. It has a lot of power and runs very smooth. I even use it when I have access to power because I like it so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just got it, but early returns are good! Easy to put together and it started right up. Got a great deal on the internet. I have heard and read that Generac is the way to go. Now I hope I don't have to use it. July 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powers everything Great value for the price. Have used it 4 times since purchased in 2012. I use it to energize the entire power panel so we can use water (well), fridge, stove, lights and AC. It's a bit noisy, so this is the one improvement I would suggest. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Doubts, money well invested I am very satisfied with my purchase of my GP6500E generator. It was money well invested. The quality and performance of this Generac generator is great. The installation and startup directions were very easy to follow for someone like me that is not to keen on the mechanics of putting something together. The motor is not too noisy at all, we can barely hear that our generator is on at all when working. I will definitely recommend this product to all my family. I am getting ready to purchase a Generac Home Standby Generator in the next few months. July 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Life saver during power outage We was dealing with a major power outage, after looking at several other brands, I went with this brand and size, because everything I have heard, I trusted it. This unit was perfect, it provided power for my side by side fridge, and two upright freezers with plenty to spare. While others were sitting in the dark, we was sitting in a well lit living room eating supper. Love my new Generac generator. June 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Product has great power for the price advertised It ran my sump pump, refrigerator and lights with no problem.First pull start up on the first try.Excellent buy June 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best generator for the money. Everything you would expect. A great generator for the times when the lights go out! June 9, 2015
