RELIABLE 5500 WATT POWER SUPPLY; DURABLE HANDLE TUBING AND GRIPS
Designed to provide a reliable source of portable power ideal for a variety of uses, the Honeywell 5500E-6037 gas-powered generator is ideal for home emergency, events, power tools, and more. Its Generac OHV (overhead valve) engine delivers a 5,500-watt power supply wherever you need it and a maximum starting power output of 6,875 watts. And this model features a push-button electric start with included battery for hassle-free start-up.
The updated design includes include thicker, more durable handle tubing and grips, an improved handle locking mechanism, and an all-in-one control panel with easily accessible and intuitively placed controls. A steel frame protects the engine from damage, while its heavy-duty wheels increase maneuverability over uneven terrain and the locking, fold-down handles aid with storage.
This generator is CSA (Canadian Standards Association) certified. It is backed by a three-year limited residential warranty (one-year warranty for commercial applications).
Note for California residents: This model is not CARB-compliant. Units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.
Powerful OHV Engine with Secure Shutdown
The Honeywell 5500E-6037 is equipped with a powerful Generac 389-cc OHV engine, which features a low-oil shutdown system to prevent engine damage and keep your generator in good shape for long-term use. It also features splash lubrication and a high-performance alternator, ensuring that operation of your electrical devices is efficient and smooth. Plus, this generator's sturdy, 5.8-gallon fuel tank ensures a full 9.1 hours of operation at a 50-percent load, letting you relax for hours of use.
Plenty of Wattage to Run a Full Range of Appliances
The Honeywell 5500E-6037 supplies 5,500 output watts and 6,875 maximum watts (for start-up of devices). For unexpected blackouts, this is enough wattage to run home appliances such as security systems, computers, and electric range tops. For construction and landscaping applications, it's enough to support devices such as trimmers, belt sanders, and circular saws. And for camping and outdoor events, it can run portable stereos, outdoor lights, and electric grills.
(Note: All appliances should be checked for actual wattage ratings.)
Portable Generator Wattage Needs
When choosing a portable generator, it's important to identify the starting watts of all the devices you might power at the same time. Some devices draw additional power as they get up and running. If this additional wattage is not accounted for, system overload can result. To determine your requirements for a portable generator, see this wattage chart sample.

Having settled on a size, it became just an issue of price/features. We liked this unit because it was well priced and had electric start (ever try to start a gasoline engine in the freezing cold?). It turned out to be smaller than I expected, and better looking. Setup was a breeze -- just put on the wheels, handles for maneuvering, fill `er up with the provided oil, connect the provided battery, and add some gasoline. Started right away.
I also installed a Reliance 50 amp transfer switch and outlet which gave me 8 circuits to play with. Installation was a snap, well within the abilities of anyone reasonably handy, though if you have *any* doubts you should consult an electrician. We've only had one outage since installation and everything worked as expected, running all except the boiler, which wasn't called for. The watt gauges on the transfer switch indicated we were well within limits, and the generator supplied peak loads no problem. The generator -- like most -- is a little noisy. You could spend *a lot* more for a quiet Honda, but, how often does the power go out? Overall, a solid unit that should meet most needs at a reasonable cost.
The one concern I have with mine is that the engine speed surges (speeding up and slowing down) when not under load; I don't know if this is normal or not. It seems to do it less when there is a load connected. I can see the governor spring moving when this happens. But it seems to work ok... I had the generator connected to the house via a transfer switch, and everything connected was working (fridge, furnace, well pump, lights).
I'm a little disappointed that at this price point it doesn't include an auto-throttle feature, which means it only runs at one engine speed no matter what the load; competing generators with this feature can slow down the engine when the load is lower, resulting in less noise and fuel consumption.
There is a fairly big, beefy-looking muffler, but it's still loud. It seemed about as loud as a friend's 10-year-old Honda generator, so I guess the noise level is good... for a generator anyway.
