Good Buy, Good Product
For the money, this is a great product. Is it as quiet as a Honda ? No, but you pay a lot less. So far it has started every time on the first or second pull. It runs 3 hot wells, one cold well, a fridge, motor, lights and a water pump in my food trailer. The only thing I have to unplug once every thing gets going is the water heater. It is much quieter than a conventional generator and more fuel efficient. Shipping was fast And FREE! One thing I don't like is having to take the side cover off... more
Pros: Quiet, Price

Wont Run Rv Ac
I got this generator to power my 30ft towable camper when dry camping. Problem is whenever I turn on the AC it trips the breaker on the generator. Also not as quite as other inverter generators.
Pros: Price

Thomas,
Sorry to hear that you're having issues with your generator. This generator has the wattage available to start most RV AC units. You might want to check to see what else is also being powered when your tried to start the AC. If you think the generator is not providing the rated output, I would suggest contacting Briggs & Stratton to find a servicing dealer in your area to have the generator looked at. Briggs can be reached directly @ (800) 743-4115.

A Great Product
I do love this geneartor because of its quietness and power output. I have ran this generator twice and it has performed well. I had dropout of my equipment which was my projector but it kept the rest of my equipment running at optional performance. This is a great generator and worth is money so far.
Pros: Quiet, Features, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, not as light as I expected

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

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.

Hi John - Apologies about the issues you experienced. I work in the marketing department for generators here at Briggs & Stratton & just walked down to our engineer's desk to get an extra Q6500 wheel from a test unit. Could you please email me (my email address is above) your address and I will send this wheel to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. - Kaitlin

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

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

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

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
