Answer: 
No, as portable generators require manual startup (via pull start or electric start options), remote starting is not an applicable option for these models.

Answer: 
Due to the fact that there is no industry standard for providing decibel ratings for portable generators, we are unable to provide any sound output specifications for the GP Series generators. Please note, however, that with the low-tone muffler that is featured on the unit, we consider the sound output of the generator to be comparable to portable models of alternative manufacturers.

Answer: 
Hi Kakdiesel1! Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Unfortunately, we are unable to install this item to a breaker in your home as they are not licensed electricians. Please partner with a qualified/licensed technician in your area. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.
Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

6,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 289.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from difficult product to work, poor directions and pictures THe position of these levers and buttons are all on different side s of the motor. THe oil dip stick is difficult to see the oil level on and remove; pooring gasoline is cumbersome; the manual has poor pictures to see levers and buttons. Direction are also difficult to follow. I will have to practice many times to be able to follow all the multi steps to turn on this generator

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Generator Saved My Butt 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves my back and shoulder Was looking for a electric start generator to replace manual start generator. This one filled that need perfectly. The price was excellent and delivery time was great. Only complaint would be that we had to pick up at shipper, they wanted to have access for larger truck than standard delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest thing since sliced bread There's nothing I can say that would even come close to doing this machine justice , bought another generator from a competitor , biggest mistake I could have made. The features, durability and quality is second to none , highly recommended this to anyone over any other brand .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GP6500E Easy assembly and set up. Started right up with no issues. Appears to be well built but have not had long enough to rate durability so I based rating on that. If durable, I would rate 5. If durable as I assume it is I would rate it a 5.

Only issue was the amount of oil they sent with the generator did not fill the reservoir. Have not had to use it yet but very happy with the size and ease of starting.
