Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by InTheDark The Power Came on Just Before We Fired It Up!
We were into a two day power outage and the temperature was in the 20's. Called ahead and paid over the phone - picked Generac because of the name and quality.
Drove 70 miles and picked it up and by the time I got home I was too tired to put it together. It got down to 13, but our propane stove kept us warm - put our food outside!
Got the generator put together and the power came on! Took a break, added oil and cranked w/o gas to make sure everything was oiled good and it started! Filled with gas and started on the first crank. Plugged in 2 space heaters and the truck engine heater and let it run for an hour and a half to break it in for next time.
Plugged in the battery charger and charged for 24 hours to make sure it is ready to go - really like the battery start feature! Great purchase for us - we have been wanting to get one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffB Love the generator!!
I purchased my GP6500 primarily to run power tools. I have a large lot which makes it impractical to use an extension cord. I opened the box and followed the instructions on assembly which was easy (putting oil in the machine, wheels on etc.). I put gas in it and it started flawlessly. I have run a 15 amp table saw and shop vac simultaneously with no problem. In addition, I plugged in a power washer and ran it for hours without an incident. When you start it and hear it run you can tell it is a quality machine. It has a lot of power and runs very smooth. I even use it when I have access to power because I like it so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck This product has a remarkable starting ability never had one problem
I live in a single home with oil heat and during the winter I need something to run all of the major things in the house if my power is lost this generator for the price is the best purchase that I've ever made it starts every time on the first or second pull I never had a problem with the needing more power than it supplies and if I do overload the circuit The Breakers work and help me to be confident so that my family is not left in the dark

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MustangLee Great value
I did a lot of on line research before my purchase. I found this unit on sale for an incredibly low price that pretty much made the purchase a no brainier compared to the other Generators on the market. I haven't had the need to use it yet but do start it up once a month as per instructions. It's very easy to start. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a little noisy.

I recently purchased this generator for back up. It was easy to assemble. It started up on the third pull right out of the box. i have only needed it once, but it fired right up on the first pull, very happy with it.

The GP6500E is exactly as advertised. It is a well functioning unit and easy to use. I couldn't ask for a better generator for the price. Im especially pleased with the electric start which is a big benefit for us older folks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mac Nice generator
Bought this for mainly pump water and freezer during power outage. Put it together and started on first pull. Ran great. Just a little loud. Loader than a lawnmower, but worth the money. Nice to have during those ice storms. Would of giving it 5 if it wasn't so loud.
