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 5 out of 5 by from Appears perfect for what I needed Easy to assemble. Started up in seconds the first time with a simple push of the start button. Started on the first pull with cord also. Slightly noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator is very reliable, started up first time and used during hurricane last summer and 2 times since on short power outages. Compared several modals, sizes, features, the generac was the best overall. Very reliable, easy to use. Had power through hurricane for refrigerator, window a/c , most house lights, made a 4 day power outage tolerable. Had a 12 hour outage recently, I had just come home from a triple bypass, instructed my wife how to start and she got power to house in matter of minutes. Would not want to be without it.
