What is the deciles for a Powermate 6500es?
Ronnie 
from Maine 
February 01, 2012
Answer
Unfortunately, not all generator manufacturers publish the decibel ratings for their generators.

Currently, there are no industry standards or requirements for generator manufacturers to follow when testing their generators for noise.

Due to this, manufacturers can test the noise level under any conditions they choose and, therefore, the results are not very reliable as each company will test under conditions that are favorable to their products.

At this time there are no db(A) ratings available on this model.

Hi Jim I bought a Powermate PM0105007 - 5000 watt gas power electric generator from home depot. The engine is a RATO made in china. Am I going to be ok with this?
John Miller 
from Washington 
January 22, 2012
Answer
Yes, you should be find with this engine. Engines from China have been in the US for 8 - 9 years and have really had no major issues over the last 5 years and parts are typically accessible if needed.

The key is to do proper maintenance such as running the unit every week to every couple of weeks to keep the internals proper lubricated and prevent moisture build-up.

This also gives piece of mind knowing it is going to work when you need it.

Proper oil changes and using clean fresh fuel with a fuel stabilizer is extremely important.

Read the owner's manual from cover to cover as there is usually a ton of information that is extremely helpful.
