Answers

Hello, NO it does not come with the entire manual, however you can access it in the website.

What is the decibel level when this generator is running?

Asked by room4 August 14, 2020
1
Answer

Because there is no industry standard way to measure sound output on portable products it makes it very hard to compare brand to brand. Generac does not list the specific decibel level for our portable products for this reason. This is an open engine similar to a lawn mower so it does not run as quiet as our automatic home standby generators, is comparable if not quieter than most other brands.

what is a transfer switch outlet

Asked by John August 5, 2020
1
Answer

A transfer switch outlet enables the generator to be hooked up to a transfer switch to shed and power up different loads and appliances that it backs up. It is recommended to use a manual transfer switch when connecting directly to a building electrical system. Connecting a portable generator to a building electrical system must be made in strict compliance when all national and local electrical codes and laws, and be completed by a qualified electrician. You can find more information online in the owner's manual, https://www.generac.com/all-products/generators/portable-generators/gp-series/gp6500-cosense-49st

I purchased this as an emergency home backup generator. Assembly was easy out of the box. I added oil and gas and it started on the first pull. I picked this model because it has the basic features I wanted and I only expect to use it once a year on average.

Haven’t had the chance to use it yet. I have been starting and running occasionally as recommended. In lower temps it takes a few extra pulls but always starts. Waiting for an outage to really put it to the test.
