Answer: 
We do not list the decibel (noise) rating of our portable generators because there is no industry standard for testing decibel ratings on portable generators. Testing is not subject to a standard distance of measurement. Therefore, any results can be misleading or inaccurate. All Generac portable generators are equipped with a low-tone muffler.

Answer: 
Hello CORVETTE, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
There are no specs for either horsepower or sound output in db for this unit. This engine is purpose built for generators. It is thus both sufficiently quiet and powerful to perform this task.
I hope this helps,
Newf.

What is the maximum total harmonic disturbance that you can see with this? The spec on their website only says >5%. I would wonder how much above 5%. Greater than 10%? I would like to know if it will damage my TV (LED LCD) or anything else in my house. Attractive pricing, build in good old USA, seems like a great unit. I want to make sure I won't destroy anything using this.

Due to fluctuating levels of distortion, we are unable to provide a maximum total harmonic distortion rating for a Generac XG6500, or any other Generac brand portable generator.

Due to fluctuating levels of distortion, we are unable to provide a maximum total harmonic distortion rating for a Generac XG6500, or any other Generac brand portable generator. Generac’s XP and iX Series units feature our True Power Technology, which provides for the clean and smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances. If you are unsure of whether or not the items you intend to run are a sensitive item, we recommend to contact the manufacturer to determine any specifications or restrictions for use with a portable generator.
The XG Series units do not feature True Power Technology. The total harmonic distortion for the XG Series portable units will be above 5%. We do not recommend the XG Series units for use with sensitive electronics.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xp6500 has great features Awesome, it does what I need it to and more, it can run my basic heat all 120volt AC circuits April 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy start, simple controls! Starts everytime, quality item!!! Very mobile with the folding handle. October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very impressed with the quaility and appearance of this generator. Very impressed with the quaility and appearance of this generator. Easy to assemble and the fact that everything needed for the first service interval is included is nice to have. It took a few pulls to get started, I may not have waited long enough for the gas to fill the carb. After the first start it now starts on the first pull. I ran a test run with about 1/3 of the expected load that the unit will see in an outage. It handled it with ease only showing 25% on the power meter. My only concern is the unit is a little loud, not so much exhaust noist but mechanical noise. I don't think I will be able to use it at night during the warmer months without possibly upsetting my neighbors. September 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product = Piece of Mind Just prior to Hurricane Sandy I purchased another generator from a big box store.However after about 10 minutes of running it would shutdown- reason- it was manufactured with the wrong fuel filter- Quality Control. It was returned. After some time to do a proper review of generators, I picked this model. Yes the price is double, but it was delivered to my house and ready to go. It also comes with a quart of oil, oil filter, air filter and spark plug for first maintenance. I was also able to get free financing for 6 months. I would have preferred 1 year. I would also like to see a meter for total wattage used like the other one had. Hopefully I won't need to use it, but I feel prepared now and I believe Generac will stand by its 3 year warranty, which gives me piece of mind. December 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great works great, starts on one pull and is easy to move around. Assembly was a 5 minute job and handles the load I put on it with ease. I calculated I would use around 2500 on each side and it wound up being 900 on A and 800 on B so it will handle a lot. Also had concerns from reviews before I bought about it dying after a few uses and then I read the paperwork and it was obvious that they didn't balance the load correctly and didn't start the load correctly either. Excellent product and made in the USA. May 15, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great features for a middle-of-the-road genny I bought it primarily for powering my welder but I can also use it just in case there are any power outages. The plug and control panel is easy to understand and it has step-by-step instructions on how to start it up basically making this dummy-proof. I did try this out for the first time and it had no problem keeping up with the juice my welder demanded. What else is great is that it comes with an extra oil filter and spark plug and other accessories. All in all, this is a good value. July 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for price Wanted a electric start but it pull starts on first pull once it has been started initially.The XG series is made in USA, thats why I bought XG instaed of GP series which is made in China. It delivers consistent 120 / 240 volts seems to be well built. May 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by XG 6500 SERIES EASY TO START RUNS SMOOTH GREAT INSTRUCTIONS IN THE MANUAL PURCHASED THIS MODEL BECAUSE IT IS MADE IN THE USA LIKE THE MAINTENANCE KIT THAT COMES WITH THE GENERAC GENERATOR. HOPE TO HAVE MANY HAPPY YEARS WITH THIS GENERATOR November 24, 2012
