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 4 out of 5 by from Good quality This generator is amazingly easy to start. I put oil and gas in it and slowly pulled the cord to make sure the engine would turn over freely and it started right up. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the gas fill cap is in the center of the tank. If it was located closer to the side it would be much easier to add fuel to the tank without spilling it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver I bought this generator in 2020 while it was on sale at H.D. it sat in my garage until the Texas deep freeze that just passed, thank GOD that I had it, I was able to easily start it and power my essentials in my house, had it not been for the generator it would have been a very chilly and desperate time. I encourage everyone to have a home generator for power outages, it will save your life, thanks to Generac for making a reliable and safe product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Major Problem I live in hurricane country. That means rain. This thing cannot be operated in rain, so it does me no good. I will have to get a machine that works in bad weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have not had to use it yet, there have been no power outages I bought it in case of power outages, so far I have not had to use it. The reviews I have gotten from friends is the main reason I bought it.
