The generator arrived on time and packaged well. I was about to cut into the box when I realized the box was in layers and you simply pulled the layers off and the generator was on the floor. No need to lift it out of the box. That was nice.
For starters, it looks very high speed and comes with everything you need to run it but the gas. It comes with one quart of oil and you'll use all of it. The manual states in one section fill until full and in another area it has oil capacity is one quart.
The generator started on the second pull and after a few seconds I put it into eco-mode and the engine stalled and died again and again. The next day I let it warm up before switching it to eco-mode and it ran like a champ. Everything I had in the garage ran just fine without effort from the generator.
Read the manual bc there's information that you need to know. Like, the bottom USB plug is better for charging cellphones. However it doesn't say why.
This generator delivers power as advertised and comes with a 24 month warranty through authorized dealers. And a quick B&S website searched revealed 15 with 45 mins of my house.
Some negatives, its heavier than advertised especially when fueled and oil is added. And it is considerably louder than advertised. Think push mower loud with eco-off and small mower loud with eco on. And ladies, you'll most likely not be able to pull start the q6500. My wife and mother in law couldn't.
All in all, it seems to do the job and at this price point you couldn't beat it. Would recommend would buy again.
Update, we lost power for 4 days. At one point we had a fridge, a freezer and two floor ac units, lamps and a tv powered at one time. I was close to maxing it out and had to plug and power things in the right order. But then again I was maxing this unit out but it still performed flawlessly. Zero regrets
MY GENERATOR SETUP:
* Kept the generator 20 feet from the house to prevent carbon monoxide issues.
* Ran all YELLOW 30 AMP extension cords above the ground utilizing plant sheppard hooks.
* Had a temporary cover over the generator using a small outdoor tent to protect the generator from the sun, inclement weather, and ventilation.
* Placed the generator on concrete blocks to keep it above and groundwater.
* Grounded the unit using a grounding rod ($8.95 at Walmart).
* Inserted safety outlet covers into unused generator outlets to prevent moisture issues.
CONTINUOUS USAGE ITEMS:
* 1 full size refrigerator
* 300 watts of lights
* 2 box fans
* 2 40" flat screen TV's
* 1 Cable modem/router
* 1 Laptop
* 2 Roku Boxes
The generator is portable, well made, and will service most basic requirements in emergencies.
It's February 3 and electricity was back yesterday finally and the Inverter made it and still in good shape ! I'm cleaning it and saving it for future need. Highly recomend !!!
