Electric Generators Direct Recommended

These GP6500 generators run like a champs. Very solidly built at an affordable cost. You can find cheaper generators, but no where near the quality of Generac.

This is our biggest seller during national disasters such as hurricanes as it will keep all of your essentials running. If you are concerned with making it through a storm without a flooded basement or a fridge full or spoiled food, this is the generator for you.

The large gas tank allows for up to 10 hours of run time when the... more

Gp6500e- Reliable And Easy To Start
Generacís GP6500E portable generator provides power on the go at the push of a button. Its single-touch electric start feature makes start-up easier than ever, and with 54.2 amps provided at 120v, the unit is more than capable of powering a variety of electrical loads. The low-oil level shutdown feature helps to prevent engine damage in case you forget to check the built-in hour meter for maintenance intervals, and its heavy duty, never-flat wheels make the unit easily portable. The GP6500E is... more

Great So Far
I received this unit yesterday, free shipping to my driveway was great. The unit assembled easily and took about 40 minutes. The instructions included were clear and easy to understand and follow. I tested it under load for about 2 hours before I lost daylight and it performed fine. It started right away and it is much quieter than I had expected, given some of the other write ups. I will continue to test it for another 4 or 5 hours and then replace the oil and put it in storage until our... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Price, High Quality
Cons: No battery charging while running, No way of knowing if battery needs charging

"The battery arrived dead and would not accept a charge. The 3 dollar charger that was included was outputting over 19 volts and I suspect that is what killed the battery. I have replaced both and the generator starts every time like a champ. Power Equipment has indicated that will reimburse me for the cost of both....stay tuned."

Great Product
After assembly of legs, handle and rear wheels, I added the enclosed oil, then added non-ethonal gas, hit the starter button and it fired right up. 4-weeks later, just to be safe, I hit the starter button and again it fired right up. This product works great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

From Ordering To Delivery To Operation Has All Been Smooth
It starts quickly with the push of a button which is much appreciated by the early morning turkey hunters. Is more efficient than smaller KW generators that I have. Continued high performance in cold weather deer season and beyond will be the deciding factor as to whether I would buy it again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price

Product Looks Great
I received the generator on the day it was scheduled to arrive, Arrived in the packaging without any damage. Unpacked it and put it together. Have it ready to use but have not started it. This is a backup generator when needed so I haven't even put gas in it. My neighbor has the same model and I helped him out his together and started it. Runs great and fairly quiet. Highly recommend this model if you can catch it on sale.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet
Cons: Heavy

After an hour or so of assembly, I added the provided, poured in gas, hit the electric starter and it fired right up and ran beautifully. Also much easier to manuver around than my old one.
