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 Works great I needed a generator for my RV and backup for the house. I bought it because friends have a home backup Generac which they are very pleased with. Worked great right out of the box and I did a test run of a few hours with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has features I was looking for Shopped around for other makes and always came back to the Generac reviews. Price is good. The company I bought it from Assembled it for me at no extra cost.I put in the oil and gas and started on the first pull. Tried all Receptacles on the generator. All worked. Bought it as a stand by in case we lose power.Good product

We did all the required maitenance, it said to do.. it’s in a well Ventilated area.. and it dose not staying running and the yellow light is on.. the price you pay for them seems like there should be some kind of warranty.we were told there was no warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine is the GP5500 and it can't wait to start I needed something in a hurry. Looking for a Japanese product. My friend owns two ACE hardware stores. They only carried Generac. Made in America. Shucks! He told me Generac made top quality stuff. I bought mine in a jam. Delighted. This baby longs to start up! Dying to start up! on the first pull. Reliable, noisy as all get out-no problem. I surround it with some boards-it produces tons of power. Runs forever. I will buy another one. You will love yours .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A couple of things All in all I like the generator, It was easy to assemble the wheels, mounts & lift handle. I have three concerns... they are. First the placement of the serial number / data tag. It is below the generator motor on the cross member. This is an entirely unacceptable location as it is very difficult to snap a pic with a cell phone as the support for the generator only allows you just a couple of inches. (VIN # data plates on are cars are in the jamb of the door frame, easy to get to and read. This is like putting it on the bottom of a car behind the catalytic converter). This needs to be moved. The other thing is the online pdf download document does not show the GP 6500 series model at all hence no location reference for the date place. And lastly; I had to pay a $75 delivery fee… So I could have bought an appliance or $400 grill and not pay a delivery fee. Because they are not handled by a 3PL. So in essence my generator cost $75 more. I was not happy with that I tried to talk the sales person & dept. manager out of paying that fee, but they didn’t budge. Gone are the good ole days…. It seems. It may be good for you, but not so good for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy assembly, easy to staret. Assembly was easy, Cut out of box and followed assembly instructions. Instructions to prepare for running were very clear. Started with some difficulty, felt hard to pull to start. Second time I started it was easy. Tested it two weeks later and had no problem starting. has all the power to run what i need during power outages. Great product.
