What is the decibel rating for this model?

Asked by Hunter March 18, 2021
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.

will this Generator run my refrigerator and a small freezer and still have extra power for a CPAP Machine

This is a great product. It is just the right wattage for my needs. It's the right size and weight for me to move it around easily and it's fairly quiet. I've only had it for a week but I did have another Generac generator in the past and it was totally reliable. I keep it in a 3' x 5' shed and leave the doors open when it's running. It certainly meets my expectations.

After doing some extensive research The Generac GP 6500 is a top quality Generator for all your power needs. Whether your a contractor or home owner looking for an emergency power source this generator fits the profile. It is a pull start motor and started on the first pull. Instructions on assembly and operation are clear and easy to understand. I took me about a 1/2 hour to assemble with some sockets and wrenches. Your pretty much assembling the handle and wheels. Everything else is factory assemble and ready to go. All you have to do is add the provided engine oil and add 87 octane or above gasoline. On a test run I was able to power my interior lights, 28 cu.ft.refrigerator, 7.0 cu. ft. freezer and according to my calculations should have plenty of watts to fire up my oil burner and Amitrol water heater. For a more permanent solution I have purchased a Generac Home Link Transer Switch. Highly recommend this generator.

Generac builds a first class portable generator. This unit is simple, but packed with the features you really need. It is manual start with a recoil pull cord. Mine started on the very first pull. The unit requires very little assembly, just the wheels and handle to attach. You do have to add oil to the crankcase before the first start, but they include all the supplies to do it. Comes with a 1 liter bottle of startup oil good for the first 30 hours. Also included is a funnel for adding the oil. Very thoughtful. After that, use a good synthetic oil and change after 100 hours. Uses regular gas, 87 octane. Has a runtime clock and alarms to alert when service is required. Five separate electrical outlets with separate breakers available for the loads you need to supply. Instruction book includes a guide to determine how much load and how many appliances you can run simultaneously. This is a high quality unit.

The Generac GP6500- 6500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is a solid performing back-up power unit that has been easy to start (usually 1 crank), is very portable, runs smoothly under no-load and loaded conditions and offers a top tank gas gauge that indicates remaining fuel left. With a 10ft 10AWG NEMA L14-30 Cord, a NEMA L14 weather proof internal installed outside Plug and a NEC Article 702 ANSI\NFPA 70 generator 2-pole El. Panel Interlock kit, was able to provide whole house generation (with minimal power management) while running a 12K BTU window unit, 2 refrigerators, 1 freezer, a gas dryer and all of the lighting in a 2800sf home! From unboxing the GP6500 to ready-to-power the home only took an hour for wheel\leg, dual carry handle installs, adding engine oil (1L provided) and gassing up the tank! After powering our home for 3 hours for generator break-in and testing power usage circuits, under no-load conditions closed the gas tank valve to allow the carburetor to run dry...now ready for monthly test runs or future power outage emergencies!!

excellent quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Living in Florida we often get hit by pretty bad hurricanes during the summer months .Having a young child in the house can be a bit tricky and stressful at times especially when there is no cold air or nothing cold to eat or drink .I love the fact that this generator is so easy to operate and move around that i can work it myself without the help of hubby .I love this beings he works and isn't always around so being able to power , hook up ,and move the generator by myself is a must . There is a fuel gauge on the top part of it so knowing when your fuel level is getting low is pretty easy .The hour meter on it i like also so i can determine how long i have ran it for .I like the overall design and features it offers . There is a fold down handle which makes it easy to move and nice for storage . It was designed to shut itself down if the oil level becomes too low to operate safe guarding the equipment from damage .Very easy to assemble right out of the box . I also like that when its running the sound coming from it isn't to loud like other brands i have used in the past . Overall a nice generator for the money

Great Product
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the Generac 3600 Portable Generator. Easy to start, very good product, very easy to move. Runs quietly compared to other generators. Like the feature that lets you know when its time to change oil and air filter.

Just the right size for household needs
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this 3600 watt generator about a week ago and I am so glad I got it. I had been looking into getting one since Irma came through and we lost power for a week. Now I have one big enough to run my chest freezer, refrigerator, a lamp and a fan. The box came damaged, but the product was in tact and had all the bolts required to put the handle and wheels on.
