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.

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

This generator works great and I got it for a great price on sale. I havn't used it much, but it starts right away and seems to have a lot of power. The only complaint I have is that getting the cotter pins in for the wheels is a bit hard how they have them positioned. Other than that the generator seems to be great so far.

I had to use the generator about 1 week after purchase. I had it installed with a transfer switch. It was easy to use. It supplies enough power to run my whole house. We ran it for 4-5 hours without any issues.

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

I bought this generator a few years ago and boy did it save my butt. I lost power last winter and had to use my new generator. Having it I was able to Heat my house and keep my refrigerator cold. I also had some lights wired too. Having this generator made my wife happy and that is what's important. A happy wife is a happy life. This was money well spent. Thank You General.

Comments about Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator:

I have had the pleasure of not having to use my generator that I purchased just over a year ago. However for the first time this summer it was finally used but yet again not by me. During a series of severe weather outbreak a friend of mine last power due to downed trees. I offer my generator to him to help keep his basement from flooding. His intention were just to use it for the sump pump. He ended up running not only the pump, but his freezers, refrigerator, air conditioning units and other things. He used it for 40 hours straight and forgot he was even on a generator until he had to fill it after the first 27 hours of run time.
