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.

Generac's GP6500E portable generator is compatible with a number of 30A manual transfer switches. To ensure that you are utilizing the appropriate switch for your backup power needs, as well as your local codes, we would recommend working with a certified electrician in your local area.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 275 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product. Assembly could have been a little easier but once done with that operating the generator was very easy. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator at a great price The GP6500E is a great product for the price I paid. This is due in part to the terrific price promotion from Home Depot but I still feel that this item would be a good buy even without the promotion. There were some minor problems in assembling the unit, but once I got it started I was very pleased with its performance. There was enough power to power most everything in my house. In conclusion I am very pleased with the purchase. July 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use, gets the job done! I am very pleased with this product. It gets the job done as advertised. September 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Generac GP6500E Generator I just received the generator last week. Delivery was very good. I hope we don't have to use the generator anytime soon. I have installed a transfer switch in case of electric outage. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Started right up, even a 110 pound person like me can do this Although I needed help to get it situated due to its weight, once the wheels were on, I was off and running by myself as a 110 pound woman with arthritis. The generator started right up. The starting directions are adhered right on top of the generator so in the time of power failure, the steps to start it are right there and easy to do. I have run some extension cords and placed them in semi permanent locations to make it even easier to switch important electrically run items over to this neat generator during a power failure. This one makes less noise than I expected. It looks to be easy to maintain and gas is easy to get into it. Glad I bought this one. June 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Generac 6500E Very nice generator!!! Started right up. Nice features. Worth paying a Lil more to get the best!!! July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Piece of Equipment This Generator was purchased for Home Emergency and Hurricane preparation. Small enough to be portable, yet powerful enough to operate refrigerators, freezers, lights, and small window A/C units. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by To soon for this but oh well. It is really to soon to place a rating on this generator that I bought just a couple of weeks ago, and put enough gas into it to see if it would work. I put it together and the instructions were very simple. The construction is second to none. I bought this generator for emergency's only, so the quick start up doesn't really tell me what to expect other than it will start right up. I did A LOT of research prior to buying a generator and came to the conclusion that Generac was the best if not one of the best to buy. I feel safe and secure knowing that my family will have electricity when the weather goes south. Hope this helps. February 26, 2013
