Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good smooth power. Provides steady power to a variety of tools at one time. It is bit heavy and noisy. Definitely not a portable, more of a work horse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, steady and lots of power I bought this generator when we purchased our new house outside city limits 1.5 years ago. Delivery was fast, on time and set up was very easy. We recently went through an Ice Storm which knocked our power out for over 30 hours. Let me be clear this Generator is a solid piece of machinery. Set it outside hit the Start button and plug it in, that's it. I haven't set up our house to be run entirely by our generator but have no doubt it will handle the load. And if your wondering 30+ hours cost about $40-$50 in fuel. When the power goes out my family and I can count on this generator and the power it provides. You will be the envy of the neighborhood when the grid goes down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westinghouse 6,500-Watt generator I purchased this generator in November 2014. Delivery was quicker than estimated, right to my door. I love this generator, it was easy to set up, starts easily and has loads of power. It's just what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woman Power I needed a good reliable generator that was easy to use and wouldn't require me to get help when it was needed. I absolutely struck gold with this generator - everything I wanted and more. My husband bought a generator a few years ago from Home Depot for our other place and his choice doesn't begin to compare with the features this one offers. Westinghouse has always been known for great quality and their tradition continues. I am recommending this model to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westinghouse 6500E Bought October 2014. Arrived promptly and set-up easy. Starts first time when I want it, though I haven't had to hook it up to the house yet. Having had several outages prior to order, we have had none since! It is reassuringly heavy, so don't expect to shift it too far if solo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first generator Purchased in February, 2015. Based on excellent ' Consumer Report ' ratings and compatibility with our ' GenerLink ' unit, I purchased this 6500 watt generator. I have not experienced a power outage since taking delivery, however, it is comforting to know it's here and ready to go. Assembly instructions were very straight forward & easy to follow.
