B&s Q6500 Inverter Generator
Arrived in excellent condition - securely packaged! Added oil, gas, and started on second pull. Have run the inverter a few times since it arrived and no problem starting and is very quiet at idle. I have not yet run any appliances through the transfer box but I purchased this unit to safely run a new high efficiency gas boiler and other sensitive electronics. My boiler would not operate with the "dirty" power my old generator put out!
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Price, Easy To Use

Not Good For Heavy Use....doesn't Travel Well
Well it's in the shop after 3 times of use. It's nice that it's light weight but it arrived with broken screw attachment so the pannals don't screw in tight.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

Tom,
Please keep in mind that this generator is designed for recreational/emergency use. While this generator can be used for other applications, it's really not designed to be a professional/commercial grade unit.

No New Wheel
Generator delivered promptly. However, one of the plastic wheels was broken. This was not due to shipping as I examined the carton when delivered . I called Briggs & Stratton they said they would send me a new wheel. A wheel arrived in a few days but it was the wrong wheel.(much to big) So I called Briggs again the person I talked to in Utah said I needed a case Number which first Briggs person did not give me. Unfortunately, your representative of Briggs & Stratton kept raising her... more

John,
Our apologies regarding the broken wheel on your generator. Just to clarify, we are an online retailer. You were speaking to the manfuacturer's customer service during these calls, these were not "our" representatives. We do appreciate that you brought this to our attention and we will forward on this review to our rep at Briggs & Stratton.

Very Good Purchase
We live in Florida and just survived hurricane Irma. We may not have had it as bad as others but after 18 hours with no electricity I decided a generator was in order. I have had other generators in the past which have done the job, this one has proved to be well worth the money.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Features, High Quality

It Got Us Through Hurricane Irma
The Briggs inverter works great. We were without external power for 5 days. The inverter ran the whole time. It powered our freezer, fridge, some lights, 2 fans and our 220v water well pump. Compared to all the other generators running in the area, the Briggs is pretty quiet. I was also pleased with the gas usage. We used about 5 gallons / 13 hrs.
All in all, this was a good purchase.
Pros: Light Weight, Features, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: It can be a bit hard to start

Q6500/initial Review + Some Useful Stats On Output
I've had the Q6500 for about a month, done with break-in, oil change, etc. No issues so far. Factory packaging was very good, no problems with arrival condition. Read the Quick Start guide, very simple, added 1 qt oil, had it running in 10 minutes. Use full choke (1 sharp pull)+ half choke (1 pull), always starts on 2nd pull, at 70 degrees.

Here are my techie findings that may be of interest to others considering this unit: Used a Fluke True RMS multimeter and a BAFX portable digital sound... more
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Needs lift handles on each side

Sound And Size Matters
I appreciate the small size and lower noise levels. It's still not quiet but the enclosure and reduced power when the load isn't great makes a huge difference. Today's generators are unacceptably loud. This one brings noise levels to a sort of acceptable level where you can be in your home and not have it drive you crazy or the neighbors hate you. I wish there was a way to have it run on natural gas. But I guess you can't have it all. I got it on sale so it was ok but may not have... more
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, Easy To Store, Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive

New Generator
The generator looks smart! A little bit of a challenge to start up though, looks like it will require attn to oil, filters and spark plugs each year, hope I never have to use it for hurricane!
Pros: Quiet, Price, Easy To Store, good customer support at Briggs & Straton
Cons: Could be easier to start up

If your looking for briggs and stratton quality you will not find it in this one. Bought 2 of these units due to hurricane irma and maria and wanted something quiet. The units are NOT quiet! In real world application you can not tell the difference! the fist one died with ONLY 4 HOURS OF RUN TIME. and the only thing plugged in was my refrigerator The second one runs like it's about to die any minute and that's with ONLY 2 hrs of run time while I'm writing this. and being in the islands there... more

Michael,
Very sorry you experienced issues with your generators. It would be extremely rare that you would get 2 generators that have issues. Based on what you described, it might be the fuel that you're using with these generators. Unfortunately, since these generators were taken outside the continental US, there is really is not way to have these serviced. If these generators are ever brought back onto the US mainland, Briggs provides a 2-Year warranty on this model.

Camping Power As Required
We are enjoying the generator at our campsite- works great.

It is a bit loud in comparison to the other camper's units- would like it quieter. My wife is not able to start it, not sure why but it seems that you have a long pull to get it fired up. I am hoping it starts better when broken in a bit.

It is difficult to get ahold of to pick up and put in truck or 5th wheel. I would like to see a lifting handle on both sides at the top to grab an pick it up.
Pros: Light Weight, Features
Cons: Dificult to start
