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 313.

Although heavier than my previous generator, it is still quite easy to move around. Unit started easily first time. Started again as a test after a month and works perfect. I am 70 years old, so the electric start is great! Only improvement I would suggest is a meter or indicator of battery charge. Customer service recommended charging for 24 - 48 hours once every month - which is okay since I plan to run the unit once a month anyway, and I understand there is always a pull start as an alternative.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs good and easy to start Working great so far. The electric start is a great feature. I installed the handle and wheels and added oil. Started right up first try. My only complaint would be that the metal cover around the engine was dented but I didnt bother exchanging it because it took me about an hour to unbox and assemble and I didn't want to do it all over again.

We live in Florida so having a generator is a big deal, it should almost be a requirement in your home when you live here. When the hurricanes come and knock out your power you'll be happy you spent the money. This one is more expensive than others but as you can tell from the reviews it's a great buy regardless. It's built to last and provides a great amount of power.

Instructions and drawings are excellent. Oil and generator cord are included so set up is complete; all you need to furnish is the fuel. Electric start is great; the battery as received easily turned over and started the engine. The included battery charger plugs into it's own outlet for charging. Well designed and well made product. Delivery of the 270 pound carton would have been much easier if the truck had a lift gate. We had to slide the generator down to the ground on a makeshift ramp.

I read many reviews this generator and on other generators before purchasing my Generac GP6500 E generator. It arrived on time and with no damage. The Home Depot employees loaded it into my truck with no problems. I assembled it, added the oil and gasoline and it started right up. We had a power outage several weeks later and it performed just as it was supposed to. It was loud as would be expected for a generator this size but it worked great and I would recommend this generator to anyone, especially the electrical starter.

Received unit in a VERY timely matter , after installing wheel kit ( a must have ) , adding oil and gas the generator started right up , runs quite and smooth . Love the electric start and the twist Lock power cord that came with this unit , as of yet have not had to use it but pretty sure it will perform as needed , I would recommend this Generac GP6500E generator to anyone and it's a good value .
