        Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

        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.

          Comments about Generac GP Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

          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.
