Moving your generator from the shed to its place next to your house can be a trial if it's less mobile than a boulder in super glue. Bring 6,500 watts of power wherever you go with the Generac XG6500. The fold-down handles and never-flat wheels provide this generator with its incredible mobility. Its OHVI engine is designed specifically for generators (unlike many competitors), which allows it to be used more efficiently and last 3-4 times longer. This great engine is protected by its automatic low-oil pressure protection, causing the unit to automatically shut down rather than continue to run and risk damage. For further protection, the frame is cradled in full-wrap tubing with metal corners to absorb damage. The included maintenance kit will help the XG6500 stay on top of its game. Don't let the snow and wind get you down, let Generac give you a hand.
