Rated 5 out of 5Â by KeepJeepin Great Generator
This is the first Generator I have bought and so far I am happy with the purchase! It was very easy to put together. It only took about 15 minutes from unpackaging to startup. It is a little loud, but not over bearing. I shut the power off to the house and started it up on the first pull! It ran great and most importantly it ran the jet pump, furnace, refridgerator, living room lights and TV, kitchen lights and bedroom lights and TV! Everything I needed to run! I used 2 15W energy saving bulbs in each room. One thing they should include is a funnel for the oil. Over all it is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Frank Solid and well built
Very well built. Was just what I expected. Ran for 3 hours so far and didn't skip a beat. Started right up on the first pull. This generator is 3 times more powerful than my old generator of 35 years. Could not run the whole house on old generator during power outages. This generator will surely get us through with more comfort. Surprised at how quite it is. Not as noisy as my old generator. Large fuel tank will mean longer run time between fill ups, compared to my old generator. I Can't wait till the next power outage to give the generator a really good test. It is a little heavy but not bad to move around since it does have a handle and wheels.

I got this generator 4 weeks ago and got my transfer switch wired up just in time for Hurricane Sandy. I lost power for 24 hours and ran the Generac for 10. The 6500 was more than enough to run my fridge, gas water heater, gas furnace, lights and outlets in select rooms with plenty of juice to spare. As a courtesy I powered 2 of my neighbors refrigerators as well. I was also happy with the noise level. I was expecting it to be much louder. I ran the generator in the shed with the doors open and fans running to keep airflowing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JoelG Good generator...Excellent Value
Assembly involved attaching the handle and the wheels...nothing complicated.
After oil and gas were added to their respective tanks and "choke', fuel and power switches were turned on, it was ready for deployment.
My initial pull of the cord did not do anything.
After checking all around, I noticed that the cord for the spark plug was not attached.
After attaching it, I gave it another pull and it worked!
It was also relatively quiet for a generator of this size.
Pros: Clear Instructions, Nice Design, Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Great Sound QualityGreat

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chuck57 Works great right out of the box
I was amazed on easy everything was and how well it was all explained. Setup took less than 10 minutes and you just have to fill with the oil supplied and fill with gas. Getting the gas took the longest time of the whole setup process. Started on the first pull and ran like a champ. It runs quiet and and with very little vibration. I purchased this unit because I am sick out power outages and this is the best investment made for that problem. It will run everything that is needed when your power goes out, to get you by without damage to your home or your pocketbook. Best Investment I ever made, don't know what took me so long to get one!
