Description
Power the fun stuff or cover an emergency with a Generac GP series portable generator. Generac's GP6500 is ideal for tailgating, camping, power tool use, and emergency home backup power. It has a low-tone muffler for quieter operation and an hour meter that tracks usage between maintenance sessions. The low oil shutdown feature detects low oil levels and if found, shuts down the engine to prevent any damage. The unique fold down hands and never flat wheels allow for extreme portability, and the heavy duty hardened steel tube cradle gives the generator extra strength and durability. The new covered circuit breaker protected outlets provide added protection from the environment and rugged working conditions. Affordable reliability and features not usually found on basic portable models makes these units a favorite for home use, camping, job sites or outdoor events. Model 5940 is not CARB (can not ship to state of California) or CSA compliant.
  • Generac's OHV engine with splash lubrication provides a long engine life
  • Low-oil level shutdown automatically safeguards engine from damage
  • Large-capacity steel fuel tank with incorporated fuel gauge provides durability and extended run times
  • Hardened 1-1/4" steel tube cradle for added durability and strength
  • Hour meter tracks maintenance intervals

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product The product was easy to set up and get started, although very heavy for one person to work with. Once the wheels and handle were attached, it was easy to handle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WARNING! PINCH POINT at handle we recently bought 8 of these generators, they seam to be well built and do what they need to do. BUT, BEWARE of the Handle!! when handling the generator, the handle swung up and pinched the tips of 2 fingers off. After that we saw that the handle could be pinned in the up or down position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES & NO on Recommendation I would recommend this Generac GP6500 COSense Generator for his built and quality. It feels a lot heavy than the stated specs, but overall built and quality of the product makes it worth the expense. It also runs for around 12-14 hours on a full tank. No I would not recommend this Generac GP6500 COSense Generator, because of several reasons. (This coming from someone who uses it for full-time RV and boondocking travel), - First: it's heavy. It's heavy to move and it heavy to carry. I'm a single parent at the moment so I don't have someone else willing to help me move it up and down from my truck. Why couldn't you just run it from the truck? You can, but the COSense sensor shuts it off most of the time to protect you from the invisible gas. - Secondly: it's loud. It's not something you operate daily, especially if you live in RV parks here and there like us. I have to set it away far away to cut out the decibles it produces. It's a bitter sweet review if you ask me. I wish I had something that was a lot quieter and lighter to handle with the same power and build quality.
