Q: Who makes the motor in the Honeywell 6500 portable generator? If its Chinese, where do you get parts? what is the horsepower?
by Gary Alford from Michigan on February 08, 2013

A: The engine in the Honeywell portable generator is built by a Honeywell partner in China and built to their specifications. Parts are available through either the local Honeywell service dealer or Honeywell directly.

The unit is rated at 389cc and there is no real correlation between HP and CC. CC's are based on the compression ratio, intake and exhaust design of the engine and one manufacturers 389cc engine can produce a different horsepower then another manufacturers 389cc engine. Think of a 350ci Chevy engine and how the horsepower would vary if it was in a Corvette vs. a Silverado truck. You may have 650 HP coming out of the Corvette and only 320 HP coming out of the Silverado even though they are the same size engine.

Never Again
The Halloween snow storm was my 2nd time with losing power for 5 days. I will never again go without power again. Freezing, eating out, throwing out everything in frig and just the whole inconvenience of it. I purchased a Honeywell 6500 generator and had my house wired. This was the best insurance I have in case it happens again. I am very pleased with the generator and the price was great and delivery was right on time.

Not A Good Sign
Purchased this generator because I needed a larger one to run well pump. I was excited and put it together the next day after I received it. Filled the oil and gas and went to start it and would not start. Backfired and finally got it to start but ran very rough. Turned it off and could not get it to start again. After being fully frustrated I put it away to work on it the next day. When I went to look at it in the morning I saw oil underneath the engine (not a good sign). It is Christmas Eve... more

I received exactly what I had ordered, delivered quickly, and it works very well. Easy to assemble, I am very pleased with my purchase. I have already forwarded the name of the seller to friends who are interested in a similar purchase.

Thank you for your professional manner.
