Portable generators are great to have around when the power goes out. But one of the biggest concerns with people using these things is carbon monoxide poisoning.

That’s why RYOBI built their 6,500-watt Easy Start portable generator with a carbon monoxide sensor and automatic CO shutoff. It stops the engine before carbon monoxide reaches a dangerous level around the generator.

In addition to that important safety feature, this generator delivers 6,500 running watts and 8,125 starting watts of power in a durable wrap-around hand truck frame with 10-inch wheels for easy transport.

It has an Automatic Voltage Regulator to ensure reliable, consistent power, and the easy-access control panel has four 120-volt 20 Amp (GFCI Protected) outlets and one 240-volt 30 Amp Twist Lock Outlet.

Plus, the 6-gallon fuel tank offers up to 10 hours of runtime at 50% load.
