Does the GP 6500E come with a battery and battery cable to charge the battery, if not where do I purchase one

Asked by: pgen
Comes with all you need for battery starting. My particular battery failed in a disappointingly short time. Don't let my experience deter you tho, all in all, I'm happy and shopping for a new battery now.

6,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 327.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Purchased the gp6500e in case of power outages from hurricane Irma. Works exactly how you would expect. Instructions could be better but common sense goes a long way. The single quart of oil brings the unit just past the low mark on level ground, good thing I had backup oil on hand. Battery came with enough charge to start it right out of the box. Has been running constantly with no hiccups. 9/10 Would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product has great features i highly recommend everybody having a generac generator as an emergency backup after going through hurricane irma and having no power for 8 days and we lost all of our perishable food in deep freeze and refrigerator because we did not get generator until after the storm but so glad i ordered it because of the unbearable heat in florida and we were able to run window ac's and well to take showers very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instructions for assembly were not clear We just got our GP6500 put together today, and found the directions for assembly difficult to interpret. There was a card that showed the parts and pictograms of how to assemble, but they were not clear enough. The manual was. It much help either. We managed to figure it out, having put together many other types of products, but I think that it might be a challenge for others. We haven't even used the product yet, as we have not lost power since purchasing, but wanted to tell the company that their assembly instructions were terrible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all my initial expectations. Easy setup and easy startup. It's kinda scary purchasing something you hope you never have to use, but for this generator ... that's the case! I expect good results sometime in the future; and I base my expectation on the homework I did on Generac Products. I think the best way to assure its reliability if I do not use it for 5-10 years, may be to simply store it as purchased ... but I have decided to run it 30 minutes every month instead. I'd like very much to give you all another review every 5 years !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 100% WORTHLESS!!!!!! It's a piece of junk. I bought it brand new. It started without any problems... 100% WORTHLESS!!!!!! It's a piece of junk. I bought it brand new. It started without any problems. 6 months later when the power went out, it would NOT start!! I paid almost a $1,000 dollars for IT, and it doesn't even work when I need it. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER GENERAC PRODUCT EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I now have to pay someone to come to my home to fix it. COMPLETE JUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac GP6500 saved our groceries! September 11, 2017, Hurricane Irma headed to Georgia! We lost power at 7:30 a.m. that Monday morning and power was not restored until 11:30 a.m., Thursday (Sept. 14th). Seventy-six hours without power, but the Generac got us through it comfortably. I've never had/used a generator before, but it is easy to start and fairly simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability, Value, Price Thorough research and customer satisfaction, were the basis for my selection. Review of the product was simplified by the product manual, which was most informative and easy to understand. I will be getting a quote for the home standby system as soon as possible. In Florida, a generator is as necessary as homeowners insurance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator was easy to assemble. It comes with everything... This generator was easy to assemble. It comes with everything you need to get it up and running. This is a heavy unit but after you get the wheels on it it's easy to move around. I have not field tested it yet but it does start easy if you follow the directions. So far I am very happy with it.
