    I live in an area that is rural and the power goes out a few times a year. A month ago we had a storm and lost power for about 24 hours. I had a little generator but it was only good for a couple lights and t.v.. Problem is I have a refrigerator, a freezer, and a well pump I need power to as well. Next week I went looking for a bigger more reliable generator and found it with my generac 6500. After I got it home I was actually hoping to have another storm knock the power out so I could see how it would do. Wasnt long and it happened! It was only about a week later another storm came through and knocked the power out for about 7 hours. Long enough to try out the new generac. Rolled it out easy enough even though it's pretty heavy, pulled once and it was running like a champ. Plugged in the necessities and it handled everything. It was so nice to have in that situation. This winter I plan on having a transfer switch so I can run everything from lights to heat. I'd recommend this generator if your looking for one.

    We chose the 6500E over other models due to it's many positive reviews from multiple sites and its features for the price. I especially like the number of available 20 amp outlets plus the 20 foot power cord. I specifically wanted the electric start and the automatic voltage regulation, and the rubber outlet covers are a great addition! Cons: The set-up instruction card had several minor errors and omissions. For example - the set up instructions did not mention that the fuel line was disconnected at the shut-off valve and needed to be connected by the owner. Good thing I saw it during my initial inspection. Suggestions: An onboard voltage meter (and maybe a manual voltage adjustment) would be a great addition, so the output voltage can be monitored without needing a separate meter. And it would be nice to have an onboard power meter showing amperage draw. But, for the price this model is perfectly adequate for our needs. Unfortunately, the week we received our generator, the price dropped $50. Wish I had waited one more week.

    We were into a two day power outage and the temperature was in the 20's. Called ahead and paid over the phone - picked Generac because of the name and quality. Drove 70 miles and picked it up and by the time I got home I was too tired to put it together. It got down to 13, but our propane stove kept us warm - put our food outside! Got the generator put together and the power came on! Took a break, added oil and cranked w/o gas to make sure everything was oiled good and it started! Filled with gas and started on the first crank. Plugged in 2 space heaters and the truck engine heater and let it run for an hour and a half to break it in for next time. Plugged in the battery charger and charged for 24 hours to make sure it is ready to go - really like the battery start feature! Great purchase for us - we have been wanting to get one. (Your program won't let me post a 4 X 6 photo.)

    Have not had a chance to use the generator in a real emergency. Received it, read the manual, filled it with gasoline and oil and prepared to start the generator. It started immediately and runs very smooth. Am looking forward to a power outage to really give it the actual test it deserves.

    I purchased this unit to replace an older smaller unit. It runs quiet for its size, and the large fuel tank means I don't have to fill up in the middle of the night. It is installed in such a way that I can feed the entire 200AMP Panel, and choose which circuits I want to power. I used it during our last snow storm, and put 14 Hrs on it of continuous use other than to shut down to fill it once. I am able to run my furnace, Well pump, Sewer pump, upright freezer, 20Cu ft refrigerator, 1.5 Cu Ft refrigerator, one light in each of the 3 bedrooms, a light in the living room, and a cable box & flat screen TV, and night lights in the bathrooms. If you have children, you understand the need for the TV and night lights! I usually leave about 10 circuits powered on, and monitor what is used on each circuit. Do you homework, figure out your wattage draw, and you will have no problems. Just be sure to balance your load draw. I chose the Generac because of their products are built well, and have a great track record. Best investment by far to keep a "happy family" when the power goes out.

    Last winter was an easy one here in the east. I bought this product after some internet searching. I was told at Home Depot that it would be 6-8 weeks before it would be delivered. To my surprise I got it in 1 week. Set up was a snap, and all was right with the world. Now waiting for a black-out. Didn't happen until July. 14 hours without power. Fired up the Gen and turned on all that I needed. With the exception of the somewhat loud muffler system, I have no complaints whatsoever. As I put in the review summary, great for the money. I looked at cheaper ones, but was willing to spend a few more bucks for something that got great reviews and ratings from other owners. Well worth looking at a Generac. Plus I spent about $100 more for the Electric start just in case I was not home when a problem occurs to make it easier for my wife to just push a button and light up the house. Ain't love grand!!!

    I bought the Generac GP6500E because of an extended power outage last Christmas. We recently had a Fall snow storm and were out of power for 4 days. The generator performed very well during the outage. Started on 1st or second pull every time. Provided all the power I needed to run the well, furnace, lights, TV, satellite dish, Fridge and freezer. It would run longer than the 10 hours the specs say at half load. Only issue is that it is a little bulky to move around if you are not on pavement. It is a good sized machine so it sinks in a bit on grass, especially if it is wet. The wheels are good sized and the frame is sturdy but it is heavy enough to make it a little difficult on grass, sand. The wheels also pack up with snow and stop rolling so you need to keep the path clear to the ground or clear the wheels frequently. Other than that it has been a good machine.

    We live in western Massachusetts and in October we got hit with the snow storm and we lost power for 7 days because of it. Luckily I had the GP6500E in my garage ready go. I also had a 6 circuit transfer switch connected to my main electrical box which is a nice thing to have. Connected to the transfer switch I had all of the lights in the house including the outside lights, furnace, water heather, 1 refrigerator, 1 freezer, 1/3 of the outlets in the house where I had 2 LCD TVs with game consoles and satellite boxes and 1 LED TV with satellite box. I ran the generator between 8 to 12 hours a day when it was need it and let me tell you it handled everything very well and efficiently, little loud when near it but when inside the house and away from it won’t bother you at all. One night a ran it all night to try it and it ran 11 hours on a full tank with enough fuel left to keep running for a little longer, (remember only a few things running at night like furnace, frig., etc. (average 500 watts) very little wattage used here only when they kick in). Good thing to have when you need it specially in cold weather.

    I have to admit I bought this generator because it was the only one in stock at the only store in the area that had any generators after Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, it has turned out to be an excellent choice. It always starts on the first pull and doesn't require a lot of effort to pull the cord. Adding fuel and changing the oil is easy. The four GFI ports are plenty to power the items in my home that need power during an outage (boiler, refrigerator, computers and Internet router, along with some lights and a 46" TV). My next step is to have an electrician install a switch for the generator on my circuit breaker panel so I don't have to run extension cords all over the house. My only complaint (if you could call it that) is the fact that the generator is rather loud. But I don't believe it's any louder than other generators in the same class.

    Purchased the gp6500 after a lot of research. It offered the best power for the price. We only had to use it for a little over 1 hour for the first 7 months we owned it. We have been faithful in starting it about every other week or so and ran it with a load for about 20 minutes. We have kept the tank full of gas treated with stabilizer. Well sure enough we lost power this week do to freak March snowstorm. Started on the second pull. It ran over the course of three days for 29 hours. Worked flawlessly. Really a lifesaver, especially with three kids and the wife. Ran 3/4 of the entire house including a well pump, two refrigerators and a deep freezer. We have a Woodstove in the basement so no need for it to run a heat source. Bottom line... Awesome product, great value and so far seems durable. If you're debating this generator, go for it!!!!
