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.

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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 279 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Generator is the best I think it's the best Electric start makes it so easy love it August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No regrets on this purchase Company has a good history of building quality, proven products. This unit does all that was advertised. Nothing cheap about it. Handles everything needed and the remote start feature was well worth the extra few dollars. August 2, 2016
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 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. Mike Bergwall Tawas City MI 48763 February 26, 2016
