Generac GP6500 Portable Generator $390 - Free Shipping with PRIME

$390.00
+7 Deal Score

Roughly $500 off retail. Only 7 Left, will not last long.

Might be a discontinued 50-state variation of the GP6500 but appears to be the latest model.

Outstanding price! If I didn't just buy the Firman generator deal from Costco I'd be all over this one.

Picked one up, been looking for something cheap that can run the entire house. Wish it had electric start but for $390 how can I complain? It does have COSense and is made by a reputable manufacturer and thats good enough for me.

You can run an entire home with this model at 6500 running watts?

Well the transfer switch would only be connected to 8 or 10 circuits, so you pick and choose what you want, but it will certainly start my 2.5 ton AC with a soft start installed, and keep my fridge going along with bedroom/living room/kitchen circuits. Dont think I will be running my hot water heater or dryer on this. But yeah, 6.5 kW plus the high surge rating is plenty for what I need.

This generator plus a manual transfer switch is by far the most cost effective way to provide backup power to my home. This for $390 or an Inverter generator for $999 (Champion open frame) or $2000+ lol

Mine was cancelled, apparently they sold one too many, though I did talk to many chat reps and eventually got a $200 promo credit from amazon to order another one.

Mine shows "Delayed, not yet shipped" this morning. Was holding out hope as it kept having a date but a message of "carrier will contact you to schedule delivery appointment"

That means its out of stock, I went through all this already. I spent about 30 mins on chat asking for someone that could actually help and finally I spoke with someone from "Large items" leadership who was able to offer me a $200 credit on items shipped and sold by Amazon.

I tried to get them to price match another similar GP6500 but the $200 was the best they could do. Still, it could be used on anything sold by Amazon so im pretty happy.
