      I decided that going without electricity and having the basement flood after the last hurricane was more stress than I wanted in my life. I did a lot searching on the internet for a generator that would give me the best peace of mind. I settled on the Generac 5940 GP6500- 6500 Watt Portable Generator (5940). I paid for the tail gate service and it was delivered very promptly and wheeled up to my house. Assembly was extremely easy. I put oil and gas in it as directed, and with one pull it was running. A few weeks later I had the "Transfer Switch" installed and we killed all power to the house, started the generator, and flipped the transfer switch to the operating position. Everything we had connected (which was just about everything except central air conditioning) was powered on. We even ran water until our well pump turned on and the generator never even hesitated or appeared to be under strain. So if we ever lose electricity again, especially for a long duration of time, the neighbors will see that we have heat, water, and lights. They will all be welcome! Thanks Generac for supplying a product that truly is what is advertised. In today's world it is nice to see some honesty in advertising.

      After a lot or research I purchased two 2011, 6500e generators, one for my parents and one for my sister. Other then one generator being shipped with one end of the fuel line disconnected because of a missing hose clamp, the units seem to be great machines and well built (haven't had to use them and have only run them for a few minutes). However, we broke the AC/DC Adapter cord that keeps the battery charged, its made out of a very flimsy thin wire. Well, trying to find this simple part has proven to be an exercise in frustration and this is why I don't recommend the product anymore. Three dealers I visited don't stock it, even though I bet it has to be the most ordered part because it's so flimsy and easy to break. I can't locate the part on the generac website or on the internet, no matter how you word it, the part can not be found. My mother, my girlfriend, my sister and I have spent many hours trying to find this part. I traveled 60 miles to three dealers only to have them tell me they can't find it anywhere. And NO the AC/DC adapters at Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Walmart, and Radio Shack, even the universal ones with lots of different ends, don't properly fit the generator !! The store adapters are all 12 V and the one that came with the generator is 14V. The part is >> AC/DC Adapter, Model YP-018. (Specifics are 120v-60hz, 20W, 14vdc, 800 mA, 11.2 VA). I own a 16 year old Sears 3500 generator and ordering parts for this machine is very simple.

      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.

      Good Quality Generator

      By jrgrey

      Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable 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.

      Bought the 6500E after the last ice storm and power outage for 5 days. Although I didn't have to use it for the latest winter storm (thankfully), the ease of set up and start up was great. I just ran it for a little to make sure it was gonna be ready if needed and it was everything I thought it would be. Not too loud and would easily handle my emergency backup needs.

      Great quality for those times of need. Electric start is great for the wives and the whole machine is pretty manageable. Bought Generac for the reputation of quality and support. The gas tank could be designed better to deal with spills. Otherwise its a great generator.

      I bought this since my power goes out a few times a year, and it seems like a great generator. It is a little heavy to move for my old age, but the wheels make it bearable. Haven't gotten to use yet, but I know it will do the job when needed.

      Very pleased, my generator came with a lot of nice features as standard that many other brands don't even offer, or charge extra for as upgrades. Highly recommend Generac products, great features, and value priced.
