How loud is the generator?

Asked by: Aya
Generac does not publish decibel levels for portable generators, as there is no industry standard. If you would like to hear the unit for yourself, we recommend visiting your local retailer store to have them run a unit for you to gauge the sound level.

Customer Reviews

Generac GP 6500-Watt Gasoline Powered Manual Start Portable Generator with 25-Foot Cord and CO-Sense 49/CSA is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features--Concerned About COsense Switch Even though I have not used the generator for a prolonged period yet, I am impressed with the many features and top quality of this product. It has every feature I was looking for in a generator at a reasonable cost. It is very heavy, but that is to be expected with a generator of this size. The fact that it comes with a sturdy folding handle and wheels is certainly a plus. I am a bit concerned about the COsense feature after reading other reviews that describe problems with it. While it seems like a good idea in theory, it may not be a good idea in practice if it shuts the unit off frequently in a well ventilated area. I agree that a bypass feature should be added for those owners who are interested. I am definitely interested in such an option. The bypass option should be provided by Generac at a reasonable cost with appropriate installation instructions. This might prevent owners from tampering with the COsense switch themselves and possibly bypassing it incorrectly. Please let me know if Generac develops an approved bypass option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generac 6500 CO works, but needs option to bypass CO sensor I have used a Generac generator ( XL4500 ) for over 20 years and have been very happy. I purchased your new 6500 and will use the old generator as backup. Your 6500 starts easily, works well, and handles my power loads very well. The generator uses a bit more fuel than I thought it should. An idle mode when not in heavy use would be helpful to conserve fuel. Also, I have had many problems with the CO sensor tripping off, even when the generator was fully outside. With swirling winds it has shut down for CO sense too many times. Installing a bypass switch for the CO sensor, with appropriate instructions verifying that you are not protected from CO, would be helpful for places where people need to run the generator close to a building or under a roof away from rain/snow. It can be an easy redesign. I will use my generator in bypass mode successfully for a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from operating temp sensor is awful I had a Generac RS5500 that was stolen and I really liked it. I purchased a new GP6500 to replace it and it is awful during the day. When the temp outside reaches 90 degrees this generator shuts down!!! It has to constantly be watched until the evening when the sun is not shining on it. This is the craziest thing i've ever seen. How is someone supposed to work with a generator that is constantly shutting down during the day. I appreciate the technology but this is a bad purchase for any one working or using the generator in the summer. I'm going to have to purchase a different one. The customer service reps and technicians while very nice and helpful did not even know that it would do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality out of the box, one pull start, only used 30 minutes as first start up trial. Unit packaging was quality, instructions and assembly of wheels to frame and feet as well as handle was simple. Manual was easy to read, follow for warnings and pre-start up instructions. Unit started on first pull, expected maybe two just to get gas through system. Ran for about half hour to give it a bit of a break-in. Plugged in a few lights and other items to give each circuit a trial. No problems, ran and powered as expected. Not sure what other review stated about eco sense issue, I had no issue as I used the product outside and away from building approx. 4 feet. No issues on my initial trial run and expect this product to do the same after the next big storm hits our area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wired this directly into a 50 Amp breaker in my fuse panel. After turning off my main breaker I... I wired this directly into a 50 Amp breaker in my fuse panel. After turning off my main breaker I turned on the generator and plugged it into the 120/220 30amp side and gradually turned on everything on the panel except for the hot water heater. It runs the home A/C 3-5 ton unit, and all the lights and refrigerator, etc. I ran everything for a couple hours to be sure I was prepared for any outages associated with Dorian. This is an excellent unit. It is not too loud, you can hear it in the house but not too bad. My only complaint is there was no 25ft cord in the box that it says it comes with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful, do not buy with the COSense We have extended a tailpipe 5 feet up from generator exhaust, it still senses the Co2 and shuts off, no help from Generac other than taking it to a mechanic and I know the problem is the sensor. This has only been started to test, sadly, we were past the 90 days to get a full refund, we bought in case of a storm related power outage. Very disappointed. Now I will unhook the CoSense and this will void the warranty. Hard to go out and restart every 10 minutes if being used post storm. It was advertised as built in US with 2 year warranty, tag states made in China.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator did a great job. We were without power for 4 days. My sister is on electric oxygen and has a portable oxygen that needed to be charged. We traveled over an hour to find this generator. We also needed to have power for our refrigerator to keep our $600 in groceries from being ruined. I would like to know if it could be back fed to my house but for the moment it ran for 15 hours on one tank of fuel. Our 4 days on generator sure eased our stress for not having power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable with a large tank We lost power at home and had to buy one of these in an emergency for our fridge and freezer. It seems to work well. The only issue is that it says that it should not be left in the rain, but yet it has a CO sensor. We had to figure out a good ventilation situation in the garage to make it work, but it would be great if they could be left outside in rain storms. Oh well... Next design?
