Questions & Answers

Does the GP6500E come with a battery in the box with the generator

Asked by: pgen
Yes, it does
Answered by: Mike
Date published: 2017-02-19

How does this unit compare in pricing with other makes with the electric start and power cord provided.

Asked by: bernsai
Our Generator (GP6500) has FAILED with only 39 hours on the clock and this company will not help us because it is outside of the two year warranty period. We just had a five day power outage here in Vermont and it failed on the second day. The repair shop says its sees a lot of failures from this model and they must have a factory defect. BEWARE of GENRAC and its products. They would not even let us speak to the Warranty Dept. At 39 hours It is not even half way due for its first recommended service. UPDATE: Basically it is just junk, The repair shop says that the rocker arm came off which in turn damaged the valve, head, pushrod and possibly more. Repair Costs $500.00

Does the GP 6500E come with a battery and battery cable to charge the battery, if not where do I purchase one

Asked by: pgen
Comes with all you need for battery starting. My particular battery failed in a disappointingly short time. Don't let my experience deter you tho, all in all, I'm happy and shopping for a new battery now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Purchased the gp6500e in case of power outages from hurricane Irma. Works exactly how you would expect. Instructions could be better but common sense goes a long way. The single quart of oil brings the unit just past the low mark on level ground, good thing I had backup oil on hand. Battery came with enough charge to start it right out of the box. Has been running constantly with no hiccups. 9/10 Would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product has great features i highly recommend everybody having a generac generator as an emergency backup after going through hurricane irma and having no power for 8 days and we lost all of our perishable food in deep freeze and refrigerator because we did not get generator until after the storm but so glad i ordered it because of the unbearable heat in florida and we were able to run window ac's and well to take showers very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product So I heard Generac has a great reputation for making reliable generators and even though I bought a portable generator, working in the propane business, their are many where I live that are buying the permanent home stand by propane powered generators and they are reliable and even though my is portable but used for home standby too, its what I want. I know it will do the job and keep us comfortable and our keep our food fresh while the power is out. I have yet to get my electrical panel up to code and a transfer switch installed on my house, but when I do I will be able to enjoy the full luxuries of having power without power :) Noise level though its just like a lawn mower or any other gas powered engine, pretty noisy, but again, your inside and its outside and so i can handle the noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all my initial expectations. Easy setup and easy startup. It's kinda scary purchasing something you hope you never have to use, but for this generator ... that's the case! I expect good results sometime in the future; and I base my expectation on the homework I did on Generac Products. I think the best way to assure its reliability if I do not use it for 5-10 years, may be to simply store it as purchased ... but I have decided to run it 30 minutes every month instead. I'd like very much to give you all another review every 5 years !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The GP6500E is just what I needed for my 5th wheel camper. I had researched different generators for use with my 5th wheel camper. I wanted a output range of 6000 - 7000 watts. In looking at the various brand that were available on the market I found that the Generac GP6500E was within the range I wanted. It had the option of battery or pull start with a battery wall charger. There was a 120/240 twist outlet that I would be able to use a twist adapter to convert to the existing power cord on the camper. The large capacity fuel tank would give me longer times between fill ups. With the additional four 120 volt outlets I could also plug in any additional electrical component outside the camper. My determining factor was that Generac makes generators of all ratings and uses and that they would have the dependability and reliability that I would need. They also have a toll free number to call for service 24/7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable And Dependable Purchased this generator due to a prolonged power outage in the Northeast in October. Didn't want that to happen again, especially during the cold winter months. Setup and startup were a breeze, and the generator fired up on the first pull. The piece of mind knowing I will have back up power for our furnace and essential appliances is worth the cost paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac GP6500 saved our groceries! September 11, 2017, Hurricane Irma headed to Georgia! We lost power at 7:30 a.m. that Monday morning and power was not restored until 11:30 a.m., Thursday (Sept. 14th). Seventy-six hours without power, but the Generac got us through it comfortably. I've never had/used a generator before, but it is easy to start and fairly simple to use.
