Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GDS 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike To early to comment. No Outages
I purchased this generator after a storm/power outage. We've had another storm but no power outage.
Can't give a good evaluation at this time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by barefootnmark Awesome generator!
Just purchased this as a backup for our home. I haven't had to use it yet, but have had it fired up and checked out. I believe it will make a great backup generator if our power goes out.

This was my second experience with Generac portable power. My first was with the GP6500 (without electric start) which operates flawlessly. This model the GP6500E provides ample power to run major appliances---in fact depending your loads and usage---this unit could provide power to the whole house if properly configured. The electric start operated smoothly and consistently, the outlet covers provide valuable protection from dust and debris, set up was extremely easy. Also, the inclusion of the heavy duty 220 cord was very much appreciated and provides additional power options. I would highly recommend this unit and I would buy it again as priced.

I needed to purchase a new electric start generator as my job does not always allow me to be home when a storm hits (shift wok). My wife needs to be able to get the generator started when I'm not home. I looked at a few lesser models but I knew I would be sorry. I decided to purchase this unit from Generac as they are one of the best. Easy to assemble: installed the wheels, attached the battery cables and put the oil in. Started right up. Has a fuel shutoff so you can run the carburetor dry (so it doesn't get plugged up. Low oil shutoff so as not to seize the engine. Great product and I would recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JRibew716 All the features plus quality & value
We bought this portable generator to use at our rural property in central Texas and put it to work the first week after pick-up from local HD. It has powered a 90-lb. jackhammer, a concrete mixer, and a chop-saw without a hiccup. Studied long before purchase and found a brand that offered features that mattered to me. Electric start (I'm 62), fuel shut-off (I can run the carb dry for storage), battery charger with plug-in port on machine), easy enough to ramp onto a utility trailer. The hour-meter is nice, too.
This machine is sturdy and well made. Construction grade comes to mind. Very pleased with purchase.
