Customer Review Of The Briggs & Stratton 6500W Inverter Generator
Exceeds expectation, decent quality. Review by Alan BenfellPurchased recently as a back up unit to power our office server and comms room and vital PC's in times of power outage. Carried out a trial run and unit performs really well and is quieter than was expected from a generator of this size. Easy to use and maneuver around.(Posted on 8 June 2023)

Greetings to you and thank you for your time! Is much appreciated!Could you advise please, can or does the Briggs & Stratton 6500W Inverter Generator come with a Remote Start unit feature please?Thank you! Cheers. Kind regards, James.
Hi There, The Q6500 is recoil start only. Thanks
Do you sell ramps that would help to wheel the generator into the back of a van?
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.
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?
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.
What is the noise rating at full power?
Sorry we do not have a noise rating for this generator at full load.
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.
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.
Would you recommend this generator for a small vintage caravan doing coffee and cake
The Q6500 would be well suited to your application.
Many customers have purchased this generator for their coffee/food trucks.
Is this machine silent?
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.
Hey can I run a cement mixer 1.5hp and a 9 inch grinder together?
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.
Hi, can this generator be connected in parallel?
Unfortunately there is no paralelle option for the Briggs & Stratton Q6500.
Hi just wondering if this generator would run a welder?
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.
can the 6.5 be connected by an electrician to run a house in a power blackout
Yes it certainly can.
Your electician would need to insall a 32A single phase transfer switch in your meter box.
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
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.
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?
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.
Would this generator be able to run a standard household HWS (Hot Water system) rated at 4800W
Provided the hot water system does not draw more than 6500W you will be able to power it with this generator.
