Ramsond proudly introduces the Elite 6500 Silent Diesel Generator. This 6500-Watt (6.5 kW) portable, silent diesel generator is suitable both as a stand-alone backup generator and for use at project/industrial sites. This highly versatile and rugged system has been designed to meet the quality and safety demands of both residential and commercial applications. The Elite features a fully equipped control panel with an array of receptacles, displays and control functions. Not all generators are created equal; the ball bearings, fuel lines, injector, fuel pump, and piston rings in any generator are critical, and are subjected to high levels of heat, corrosion and/or friction. Although many other generators may appear similar, they are simply not comparable. The Ramsond Elite uses premium ball bearings by some of the world's leading producers, such as NSK, SKF, and General Bearing. The Elite incorporates the latest innovations in power generation technology, such as the latest generation of AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator), laser balanced crankshaft, heavy duty flywheel, premium starter, fully copper alternator, East Penn (Deka) US made batteries and more. Ramsond Elite diesel generators are super quiet, powerful, versatile and safe, backed by one of the best warranties in the market.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elite 6500 I picked up my Generator Thursday Night. I read all instruction before operating. I did not notice that one of the 12 V battery charging terminal knob was missing, the Black Ground. Also I was checking wireless remote and one of the antena tops is missing (round piece). I was charging my solar battery's on sunday 12/1/13. I heard the generator stop, I wen't to the pump house and (diesel was leaking from the bottom of generator. I found that the fuel line had came disconnected from Injector inlet, the clamp must have came off from vibration 6.8 hrs running time day There was only 0.6 hours from factory. I ran generator staturday 3.0 Hrs, sunday 3.2. I cleaned up mess. I inspected all areas of gen all wiring harnesses loose, and floppy. Piece of junk. I will have to keep a close watch on gen when I operate. December 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by it is a good generator so far after I got it to start when I first tried to start it, it wouldnt. I had to reroute the fuel line to remove the kink in it than it fired off. I dont think that the db rating is quite what is listed other then that it has been a good purchase December 18, 2012
