Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what is advertised I decided that going without electricity and having the basement flood after the last hurricane was more stress than I wanted in my life. I did a lot searching on the internet for a generator that would give me the best peace of mind. I settled on the Generac 5940 GP6500- 6500 Watt Portable Generator (5940). I paid for the tail gate service and it was delivered very promptly and wheeled up to my house. Assembly was extremely easy. I put oil and gas in it as directed, and with one pull it was running. A few weeks later I had the "Transfer Switch" installed and we killed all power to the house, started the generator, and flipped the transfer switch to the operating position. Everything we had connected (which was just about everything except central air conditioning) was powered on. We even ran water until our well pump turned on and the generator never even hesitated or appeared to be under strain. So if we ever lose electricity again, especially for a long duration of time, the neighbors will see that we have heat, water, and lights. They will all be welcome! Thanks Generac for supplying a product that truly is what is advertised. In today's world it is nice to see some honesty in advertising.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Bought this unit 2 weeks ago and was fairly simple to put the wheels and handle on. Big disappointment for me is that It would not start right out of the box. Called customer service number to make sure I was doing everything correctly and I was,but still nothing. Had enough fuel and it was turned on, oil in crankcase, on/off switch to on, choke on, but would not even think of firing. Took the plug out to check for spark and no spark. So either the plug is bad or the switch or wires from the switch. This is my first Generator and this is not a good start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product has great features - easy to move around easy to fueland maintain We have found that Generac generators and products are well worth the money. They are easy to work on and run great. I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed for immediate concerns that we may need it Having no backup plan for heat and concerns we may lose electricity with forecasted temperatures at -33°. I wanted piece of mind knowing it would sufficiently power our furnace and any other things we need. Started right up on first pull, battery wasn't charged straight out of box when I did initial start, but works now that it has been charged. Great product.

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 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 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.
