This item ships freight. Need a liftgate? Details.

Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Freight orders placed before 3PM EST (M-F) ship same day.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

        Very impressed with the quaility and appearance of this generator. Easy to assemble and the fact that everything needed for the first service interval is included is nice to have. It took a few pulls to get started, I may not have waited long enough for the gas to fill the carb. After the first start it now starts on the first pull. I ran a test run with about 1/3 of the expected load that the unit will see in an outage. It handled it with ease only showing 25% on the power meter. My only concern is the unit is a little loud, not so much exhaust noist but mechanical noise. I don't think I will be able to use it at night during the warmer months without possibly upsetting my neighbors.

                  Comments about Generac XG6500 XG Series 6500 Watt Portable Generator:

                  Just prior to Hurricane Sandy I purchased another generator from a big box store.However after about 10 minutes of running it would shutdown- reason- it was manufactured with the wrong fuel filter- Quality Control. It was returned. After some time to do a proper review of generators, I picked this model. Yes the price is double, but it was delivered to my house and ready to go. It also comes with a quart of oil, oil filter, air filter and spark plug for first maintenance. I was also able to get free financing for 6 months. I would have preferred 1 year. I would also like to see a meter for total wattage used like the other one had. Hopefully I won't need to use it, but I feel prepared now and I believe Generac will stand by its 3 year warranty, which gives me piece of mind.

                      New Vs. Reconditioned

                      Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

                      • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
                      • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
                      • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                        New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

                                  For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household or recreational use by original purchaser.

Once a generator has experienced commercial or rental use, it shall thereafter be considered a non-consumer use generator for the purpose of this warranty.


                                  All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac’s Warranty Policies, Procedures and Flat Rate Manual.

                                  • Repairs or diagnostics performed by individuals other than Guardian/Generac authorized dealers not authorized in writing by Generac Power Systems.
                                  • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
                                  • Failures caused by any act of God and other force majeure events beyond the manufactures control.
                                  • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
                                  • Products that are modified or altered in a manner not authorized by Generac in writing.
                                  • Any incidental, consequential or indirect damages caused by defects in materials or workmanship, or any delay in repair or replacement of the defective part(s).

                                  • Expenses related to “customer instruction” or troubleshooting where no manufacturing defect is found.
                                  • Rental equipment used while warranty repairs are being performed.
                                  • Overnight freight or special shipping costs for replacement part(s).
                                  • Overtime, holiday or emergency labor.

                                  THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, SPECIFICALLY, GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

                                   

                                  Any implied warranties which are allowed by law, shall be limited in duration to the terms of the express warranty provided herein. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to purchaser/owner.

                                   

                                  GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS ONLY LIABILITY SHALL BE THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF PART(S) AS STATED ABOVE. IN NO EVENT SHALL GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS, INC. NEGLIGENCE.

                                   

                                  Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to purchaser/owner. Purchaser/owner agrees to make no claims against Generac Power Systems, Inc. based on negligence. This warranty gives purchaser/owner specific legal rights. Purchaser/owner also may have other rights that vary from state to state.
