My Generator
My EG 6500 is great. Yep it is just sitting here waiting for the next power outage. I wish that it would have come with wheels or they weren't so damn expensive to buy.

Economical But Still Reasonably Quite
I needed backup power to run well pump, boiler, lights and refrigerator at our house due to the complete incompetence and down right criminal behavior of NYSEG, a utility in NY state. This generator does it all. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the other Honda lines but its half the price too. I'm very happy with it and pull a full load on it for an hour this weekend. Instead of a wheel kit I bought an aluminum refrigerator dolly to wheel it around if I need to.

Pretty Good Generator, Good Service From Egd
Post Sandy, I figured it was worthwhile to pick up a generator for outages. As I am figuring that I will not be purchasing another generator for a good decade or two, I didn't mind shelling out a premium for this Honda.The generator itself is very solid looking but I do have a few issues with it being that it carries a hefty premium over some alternatives.

1) For the price, it's amazing that it doesn't come with a wheel kit (I knew this going in, but still...). Due to low stock levels,... more

Charles,
You are welcome to give the folks at Honda a call at 770-497-6400 if you'd like to talk to them about any issues with your generator. They may ask for the serial number of your unit, so you'll want to have that handy when you call them.

When you buy a Honda you get their technology & attention to detail, no matter where the unit was assembled. Unlike no-name brands, Honda's quality control is demanding & thorough, no matter where the manufacturing plant is located.

Well Built
I would recommend this generator to others. It appears to be well built and easy to operate. I tested this on my home with a recently installed transfer switch and it powered up most of the electrical items.

It is easy to start and relatively quiet to run. Although a bit pricey, I bought it for reliability and durability. Also, my John Deere dealer can service this generator if required.

Emergency Power
With a combination like this power outages are no longer a worry, after super storm Sandy we lost power for 5 days, I was lucky, no property damage however with cold temperatures and no heat I felt the need to be better prepared should an event like that ever happen again. This combination will provide all basic needs heat, refrigeration, lighting and a couple of other non essentials such as TV and computer use. I work for a utility company so i could not be home with my family during the storm... more

Quick Install
It was very easy to install, and strong enough to stand up to repeated use.

I got it at a great price too; I saved money buying on line- you can't beat that.
