    Product Review

    I purchased this in August. It was delivered safely and in great condition. My only complaint is that it is very difficult to start . Sometimes 10-15 pulls. It’s has been filled with Fresh fuel and B&S oil that came with the generator. I was told to take it to an accredited B& S service department which I did. Was then told it had a “ tricky choke “ ( whatever that means ). I have operated many different types of power equipment 2 stroke & 4 stroke and this is by far the worst one I have had to start. I am disappointed because it’s seems other reviewers have not had any difficulty starting their generators. With this in mind I cannot rate this generator as high as I would have liked.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Is this machine silent?
    A:

    Hi There,

    The Q65000 is a very quiet generator for its size and output capacity.

    It has a noise level of 66dba @ 7m which is comparable to a lot of generators in this category.

  • Q:Would you recommend this generator for a small vintage caravan doing coffee and cake
    A:

    HI There,

    The Q6500 would be well suited to your application.

    Many customers have purchased this generator for their coffee/food trucks.

  • Q:Hi just wondering if this generator would run a welder?
    A:

    Hi There,

    We would not recommend running a welder from an inverter generator.

    For welders we recommend portable trade style generators with a suitable capacity to power the welder.

  • Q:What is the noise rating at full power?
    A:

    Hi There,

    Sorry we do not have a noise rating for this generator at full load.

  • Q:can the 6.5 be connected by an electrician to run a house in a power blackout
    A:

    Hi There,

    Yes it certainly can.

    Your electician would need to insall a 32A single phase transfer switch in your meter box.

  • Q:Would this generator be able to run a standard household HWS (Hot Water system) rated at 4800W
    A:

    Hi There

    Provided the hot water system does not draw more than 6500W you will be able to power it with this generator.

  • Q:Hey can I run a cement mixer 1.5hp and a 9 inch grinder together?
    A:

    Hi There,

    This generator would most likely be too small for running both of those items together.

    You would be better off looking at an 8-10kVA generator to run them both.

  • Q:HiDo you think this generator Would be as quiet as the Honda eu70is? I’m looking at purchasing one for my coffee cart but not sure if i should spend the extra and get the Honda.
    A:

    Hi There,

    The Honda generator will be quiter than the Briggs & Stratton generator.

    Our best recommendation would be the Yamah EF6300iSE which is extremely quiet, and powerful.

  • Q:Hi,If I want to run my house as a backup but I’ve only got a 16amp inlet, is this still possible or will the generator run in some kind of restricted mode?
    A:

    Hi There

    If you were to connect the Q6500 up to your transfer switch with one 15A outlet, you would only be able to pull a maximum of 3450W. 

    Having a 32A transfer switch installed would give you the ability to use the generators full power.

  • Q:Do you sell ramps that would help to wheel the generator into the back of a van?
    A:

    Hi There,

    At this time we do not have any ramps in our range sorry.

    You may have luck at a hardware store, or having some fabricated locally.

  • Q:Does this run a 450litre fridge? IE family size? And an 2 oil heaters at the same time? I am just trying to work out what it can run from an appliance perspective at the same time? Dryer? Washing machine? Dishwasher?
    A:

    Hi There,

    How many, and what appliances the generator can run at any one time really depends on how much power each appliance requires.

    We have a handy power calculator that allows you to calculate your power needs: https://www.mygenerator.com.au/power-calculator

    This should help you determine if this generator would be the right model for you.

  • Q:i have a manual transfer switch installed with 2 fifteen amp outlets can i plug in two fifteen amp extension leads in to the generator? and get full use
    A:

    Hi There,

    Yes, you could do that. You would just need to make sure that the appliances on the circuits being powered will not attempt to draw more than the generator can provide.
