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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice unit Bought this generator for use as a power backup when power is lost for myself , other family members or friends . 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 .

I've only had the generator for a few weeks but my initial impression is very good. I had to order this online and pickup from the store. That all went very well - no damage at all to the packaging. The unit is heavy - close to 200 pounds. I was glad they loaded it at the store for me as it was much easier to unload at home (it will take two to unload it). I was able to assemble the unit by myself. The instructions were clear. The battery was not charged enough to start the unit, so I charged it overnight and it started up right away. I did try manually starting when the battery would not it but was unable to do so. Not sure if it's because it was its initial start-up and I have not since tried it. My only complaint at this point is the cord it comes with. I need a L14-30 on both ends, so I'll need to purchase one.

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 Great product for the price 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.
