My husband and I bought this generator during a recent power outage. We found this generator to be reliable during the four days we did not have power. The generator powered two refrigerators, a sump pump, a couple of lamps, and two box fans for 10-12 hours on one tank. I'm pregnant and was able to easily start the generator. It takes a little bit of strength, but nothing that I would say would be unexpected for a generator of its size. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase.

If I will be gone when the power failure happens, my wife will not be able to start this generator by herself. It takes an average of 12 pulls before it starts. Oh boy, after starting, it feels like I've done 2 sets of bench press. I was comparing the Generac engine with Honda but failed in comparison.

The Power Came on Just Before We Fired It Up!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

We were into a two day power outage and the temperature was in the 20's. Called ahead and paid over the phone - picked Generac because of the name and quality. Drove 70 miles and picked it up and by the time I got home I was too tired to put it together. It got down to 13, but our propane stove kept us warm - put our food outside! Got the generator put together and the power came on! Took a break, added oil and cranked w/o gas to make sure everything was oiled good and it started! Filled with gas and started on the first crank. Plugged in 2 space heaters and the truck engine heater and let it run for an hour and a half to break it in for next time. Plugged in the battery charger and charged for 24 hours to make sure it is ready to go - really like the battery start feature! Great purchase for us - we have been wanting to get one. (Your program won't let me post a 4 X 6 photo.)

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

This generator ran perfectly and powered what we needed during our last ice storm. I have 1500 sq ft and we could run our water well, water heater and lights and receptacles.

Nice generator

By 

from Hartford City

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

Bought this for mainly pump water and freezer during power outage. Put it together and started on first pull. Ran great. Just a little loud. Loader than a lawnmower, but worth the money. Nice to have during those ice storms. Would of giving it 5 if it wasn't so loud.

Very dependable

By

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

Starts on the first pull when primed properly. It's been very useful and dependable and is very quiet for a large unit. It has helped me out on several occasions. Worth it's weight for sure.

The GP6500E is exactly as advertised. It is a well functioning unit and easy to use. I couldn't ask for a better generator for the price. Im especially pleased with the electric start which is a big benefit for us older folks.

By

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

I live in a single home with oil heat and during the winter I need something to run all of the major things in the house if my power is lost this generator for the price is the best purchase that I've ever made it starts every time on the first or second pull I never had a problem with the needing more power than it supplies and if I do overload the circuit The Breakers work and help me to be confident so that my family is not left in the dark

Great value

By 

from Sterling Heights

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

I did a lot of on line research before my purchase. I found this unit on sale for an incredibly low price that pretty much made the purchase a no brainier compared to the other Generators on the market. I haven't had the need to use it yet but do start it up once a month as per instructions. It's very easy to start. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a little noisy.

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

Extremely quite. Takes quite a load before even phasing the machine. Very lite in weight for its size. Easy to stow away especially if space is limited
