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.

No Doubts, money well invested

By 

from San Benito

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

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.

Powers everything

By 

from Shamong

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

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.

Life saver during power outage

By 

from Lomax

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

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.

Best purchase I ever made !!!

By 

from Cannelton

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

Straight off the skid, gas and oil added and my Generac fired on the first pull. Even my gf has no problem firing it up. We're doing major alterations on a cabin and use the generator at least 4 days per week. Surprising how long it runs on a tank of fuel. I ckeck it several times daily and swear somebody is sneaking gas into the tank. It's a bit noisy, but outside where that doesn't matter. Before retirement, I'd been in construction but never had the opportunity to use a generac. Those boys don't know what they're missing. I'm completely satisfied, and have already boasted about my great choice. When the work is complete, my Generac will be set up for back-up power. I feel secure knowing it can be counted on in a pinch !!!

This model has the power and features to last

By 

from Marion, Iowa

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

The 6500E has sufficient power to provide for the essentials of this household. It has the ease of starting to fill in within the time constraints of an emergency. It should meet our needs for years to come.

Generac is #1

By 

from Mahopac

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

Gererac was my first choice, spent a lot of dark days before I purchased the GP6500E. Plenty of features, easy setup. I chose this model especially for the Electric Start feature, and the efficient fuel consumption rate. I also matched this generator with the Generac Transfer Switch kit.
