Many companies outfit their generators with car motors for some reason. What may be good for cars isn't always great for generators. Generac knows this, which is why the GP6500 has an efficient OHV engine, made specifically for portable generators and thereby ensuring reliable operation. The 5976 is capable of producing 6,500 watts of power when you need it most, and it can run for 10 hours at 50% load. It is protected from physical damage by its 1.25" hardened steel tube frame. If you don't like guessing how much fuel remains in the steel fuel tank, you'll love the built-in fuel gauge. Arguably the most important component to the generator is the outlets, and Generac goes the extra mile to ensure they are protected with the outlet covers and circuit breakers. Taking the unit from out of the shed to its proper place next to your home or to an outdoor event is easy thanks to the fold-down handles and puncture proof wheels. With the power of Generac by your side, you'll have ample power at the ready whenever you need it.
