GP-6500 5,500-Watt Continuous Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped us battle Sandy We were already out of power for 36 hours when I found out that the Downingtown Home Dept had received a shipment of 170 of these (no one else in a 50 mile radius had any generators). Got it home, took it out of the box, added the wheels, added oil, and then gas...and to my surprise it started on the first pull! My luck is always bad, so I figured it wouldn't work at all. I was able to run 2 fridges, 1 stand up freezer, a hot water tank, a 47 inch widescreen TV, DVD player, and a number of lights without any problems what-so ever. I have recommended this to friends and neighbors.

I will write another review when I actually have a power outage. so far I am pleased with my purchase! only rated 4 stars due to the fact I really haven't used it yet. but I will give 5 stars if it does the job. I am sure it will!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of features for a great price. I got one of these last week. I pulled it out of the box, added oil and gas, and it fired right up on the first couple of pulls. It has plenty of features that are not available on generator in this price range. I've hooked up a few items around the house (heater, refrigerator, window AC unit) and it handled them all without fail. I am confident that this unit will do the job when I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator passed a rigid test durnig Hurricane Sandy This generator was used continuously for over 140 hours during Hurricane Sandy. We were out of power for 13 days with only recommended oil changes performed on this generator. Initially this generator was purchased to operate my sump pump only but it powered many appliances including our furnace during this outage. Kudos to Smarter Tools for manufacturing such a durable product. I now simply start it monthly to keep it ready for the next storm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up instructions, started right up. Great! Easy to put together. Just a couple parts, handles tires, etc. and it started right up! Runs nice and smooth--no "hunting" when under light loads. I spent a little bit of time looking at the engine size (cc), run time, peak load, features (like a case iron sleeve), and price. I emailed the smarter tools folks with a question prior to purchasing and was delighted to get a real person and prompt response. I then settled on the Smarter Tools unit. I only gave it 4 stars because Ive only had it for 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent generator for the money. . Easy to assemble, Started right up on third pull. After that starts on first or second pull. Fairly quiet. Wish it had an electric starter. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quaility product at an affordable price I've only had this generator for a week but it appears to be a great purchase. The motor started on the 2nd pull and runs smoothly. All outlets are operating at the proper voltage and really looking forward to using this unit during a power failure. Finally, the instruction manual is well written with a complete parts list for ordering repair parts.
