Power to Play

Tailgating, camping, and outdoor parties — the Generac GP6500 Portable Generator is ready to deliver. The GP6500 gives you the power to watch TV, listen to music, power the buffet table, charge electronics and more.

Reliable and Rugged

Generac OHV Engine

The Generac GP Series generator's reliability starts with the Generac OHV engine. When a power outage occurs, you can trust the Generac GP6500 Portable Generator to withstand long hours of continuous use. In addition, the Generac OHV offers increased fuel efficiency, a cooler running engine and reduced oil consumption. With all of its versatility, it's easy to see why the GP6500 is a popular choice for emergency backup power, recreation and job sites.

Strength and Durability

The Generac GP6500 Portable Generator is as tough as it is reliable. An extra thick hardened steel frame provides strength you can count on — ideal for job sites and demanding tasks for the home. A fold-down locking handle and heavy-duty, never-flat wheels provide improved portability.
