Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I added the provided oil and some gasoline. The generator started on the 2nd pull. I was a little worried about noise but this Generac runs very quietly and will not be a noise problem. I'm very glad to have back-up power the next time we lose power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't used the generator yet, but I have noticed a flaw with the product: the owner/operator manual. It sucks the illustrations are impossible to glean any useful information from and the instructions are ambiguous at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is dependable We purchased this generator when we ended up losing power during a snow storm. It powered what we needed and made the power loss bearable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice generator but.... Overall appearance and ease of setup is good but the installation of the wheels was not without some aggravation. In installing the wheel on the right side (next to the grounding stud/wire) I had to remove the generator rubber mount nuts on the rear mounting studs and lift the back end of the generator motor assembly off the crossbar in order to get the axle pin through the wheel mount. The grounding stud is too close to the rubber mount and I could not get the axle pin past the rubber mount without lifting it out of the way. I feel this is poor design but all in all, it was remedied within 10 minutes and the wheel was installed. The grounding stud and wire should have been placed further away from the wheel mount in order to avoid this problem. I have not fired up the generator yet but I have readied it in case of power outage. Build quality and appearance is very good. I have read other reviews on this unit and the only item not liked is the CO sensor feature in that if the unit is not placed correctly outside where the wind can blow CO2 emissions back at the unit, it continually shuts it down. I will test my unit today and see if it is a problem. Generac builds quality generators and I recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dead right out of the box Easy start, runs fine quieter than my old generator. Right out of the box it produces no electricity. I get to see how warranty repair is from the beginning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I lost power due to tropical storm Micheal and now I have this awesome generator that starts up first pull. I live in virginia we just lost power due to tropical storm micheal.So I finally had some money and was searching around for a good generator. I went to lowes and found the last GENERAC GP 6500 CO-SENSE it was brand new but box was messed up so lowes gave me a discount. I have always heard there great generators this is my first time buying one,and I'm very very impressed.The set up was easy just putting on 2 wheels and 2 front rubber stoppers.Put oil that came with in,and filled it up with gas,one pull and bam started right up.I filled it up and started so far 3 times and everytime one easy pull starts up easy.Not 2 loud I have it bout 12 ft front of my door hardly hear it in the den which is near it in a double wide trailer.My family is happy thanks 2 Generac I like the features and is safe for my family I also notice which is rare for a generator it doesn't get to hot which makes it safe for my lil ones walking by.I don't have it hooked up 2 house yet just running 2 cords to house with 3 ways on it,and have it going to 3 of my big fish tanks,fridge,freezer,tv,playstation microwave,everything is running great which I was worried at first.I highly recommended your product to anyone now thanks to generac great generators my family is happy:)
