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

Asked by: pgen

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.

GP6500E 6,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Cord is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 380.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator, does everything I need, a little loud. I purchased this during a snowstorm that knocked out our power for a couple of days. We have a newborn and therefore a lot of breastmilk in our freezer that we needed to keep frozen. This was EXTREMELY easy to start and run and then hook up not just the freezer, but also our fridge. It ran for the stated 11+ hours with an upright fridge and freezer and saved everything we needed. The power this specific model provides is more than enough for us and I will hook it up to our furnace down the road if it happens again as well as electrical. In a residential area, it is a little loud, but I presume with snow and nothing else on or running around the neighborhood, it was only maximized because of the circumstances. I will certainly take this with us camping or tailgating down the road as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort after the storm! This product was a life saver for me and my family after surviving Hurricane Michael. It’s loud but it does it job and does it well. We were able to keep our house running for day without power. It runs about 10hrs on a tank of gas and it had enough power to run our whole home. Then after our power was restored it was used to help others until theirs was restored. This generator was a great investment, don’t be like my family and wait until you absolutely need it, buy one now and be prepared for anything!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What fuse? My generator has a 3Amp fuse. Guess what? Generac does not show this fuse on their drawings. They can't tell me what it does nor where it is located on the unit. I had to send them a picture so they knew their own Generator design. One more note. 4 Generac Generators crapped out in my neighborhood during Hurricane Florence. That meant that 4 homes were without power for 7 days. Says a lot for Generac reliability and performance. I'll never make this mistake again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk 6500 I use this generator for 2 months every yr on weekends at deer lease and run fuel dry when I leave till following weekend Iv used the 6500 for 1st year no problem except oil consumption 2 nd yr had to have carb rebuild and and 3rd yr now needs a valve job junk I'm not putting any more money in it. also friend (same deer lease )has a generac 5000 3 yrs old has had to replace push rods

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ran for 4 days straight This seems to be a good generator is provided backup power for me for 4 days straight. The only thing I wish the generator had was a percentage used of power as other generators offer that feature. The only feature offered on this is the hour meter which is very good for maintenance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excelent portable generator. Purchased this generator after Hurricane Michael. I used it to run refrigeration, medical equipment and my well. It had absolutely no problems carrying the load. It is a quiet generator and ran for about 14 hours on a tank of gas. I highly recommend this generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it worked great Purchased the unit after a ice storm. Easy to set up, started on first pull. Power was off 2 days but we were able to keep the fridge and lights on. will purchase transfer switch and install ASAP

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good standby power sytem The fuel valve was a little hard to understand how to properly open. Other than that minor hurdle, I love it. It is a tough, stable and reliable power source.
