A generator is as good as dead if its invaluable outlets are exposed to the elements. Generac can't wrap their head around that, which is why they incorporated circuit breakers and covers on the GP6500E Portable Generator. This 6,500 Watt electric start generator also offers extra protection to its stellar OHV engine. When oil levels are dangerously low, the unit automatically shuts off rather than continue to operate and risk permanent engine damage. If you need to take power with you, the handles and puncture-proof wheels will help make it happen. When transporting the generator, rest assured that it can take a hit or two and still operate fine (thanks to its hardened steel tube frame). Generac's soul focus has always been to generators, which is why it wouldn't make sense to go with anyone else.
