Designed to help you stay safe and comfortable during power outages, the dependable Honeywell HW6200 Portable Gas Powered Home Generator delivers a host of advanced features that will help put your mind at ease. Featuring ample outlets, this highly efficient 7750-watt generator lets you run vital household appliances during power outages or natural disasters.

Smart Start Design for Convenience and Safety

Routine power outages, rolling blackouts, and natural disasters can cause major disruptions in your life, but being able to generate your own power goes a long way toward keeping you and your family safe and comfortable.

Designed for safe and easy operation, the HW6200 features a recoil start and Smart Start features with color-coded starting controls that are easy to identify and understand. The generator includes a four-in-one power cord, and Honeywell also provides detailed operating instructions 24 hours a day at 1-888-RECOIL-8.

This is enough power to run a large appliance like a dishwasher, washing machine, or electric range, or to run several smaller, more efficient appliances simultaneously, such as reading lights, a portable air conditioner, refrigerator, computer, and more. (See side graphic for more details.)

Thanks to a SurePower Alternator that provides voltage-regulated power, you can trust that this generator is electronics friendly. Plus the HW6200L provides the outlets you need to support these appliances, with four 15/20-Amp 120-volt AC outlets and a single L14-30-Amp 120/240-volt AC outlet.
Convenient Features and a Truly Mobile Design

This Honeywell generator comes equipped with never-flat tires and a high-leverage handle to ensure that it's easy to transport whenever and wherever you need it most. Additionally, the generator's large, 6.5-gallon fuel tank ensures long run times--up to 8 hours at a 50-percent load. And its oversized muffler is engineered to ensure quiet operation that blends into the background.

The HW6200 also offers a convenient fuel gauge, low-oil protection, and overload protection, letting you focus on your life rather than running the generator itself. It even comes with the first liter of oil and a funnel.

This portable generator measures 29 x 27 x 29 inches (LxHxW), weighs just 195 pounds, and is backed by a limited three-year warranty. Assembly of wheel and handle required (takes about 20 minutes).

Good News, Bad News, September 24, 2011 By T Duffney, RI

Bought a new home at the beginning of 2011 in the woods and needed a generator. I bought the Honeywell,HW6200 in July, and during hurricane IRENE, it provided hours of continue service for seven days without a problems. It was very easy to start, my wife is a tiny woman, and she had no problem starting this machine when called upon to do so. Started EVERY time on the second pull! I paid $870.00 for this generator and decided to buy one for one of my daughters who also has a new home in the woods, but NOW, just two months later, the price is $500 more than what I paid. Hey Amazon...What's up with that?
Could there be a little price gouging at Amazon? Well thanks but no thanks, I'll wait for a better deal.

"Great generator...works for us", August 26, 2011 By Liz (Alexandria, VA United States)

Got this last year and have used it several times. Easy start...follow the directions, duh. I installed a generator switch so all I have to do is start it, plug it in and flick the switches. Everything crucial is hooked into it including our gas furnace, coffee machine, toaster, computers, TV, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator, lamps for all our rooms. We have a 2600 sq ft house and this is sufficient. We did not hook up the central air conditioner, the electric stove, washer/dryer or dishwasher. We'd need a more powerful generator for that and we can do without for 1-7 days which is the most we've been without power.
We only paid $728 with free shipping a year ago from Amazon...also bought a reliance transfer switch for $266. Reliance's web sit has a video that gives step by step installation instructions.

Ran well when needed., July 1, 2011 By Rick Davis

I purchased this generator mainly because it was on sale for 1/2 price, $604. Our power goes out occasionally, and I wanted to be ready. We got hit by a freak tornado on May 27 and lost power for 96 hours. I immediately hooked up the generator, and it ran flawlessly for 96 straight hours. We were very happy with it. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is the noise. It is very loud. If I could put a better muffler on it, I would give it a 5.

Great Price for Powerful Generator, June 12, 2011 By Jen B "JB" (Tampa Bay, FL)

Living in Florida 16 years, a must have is a generator that will power refrigerator(s) (in my case two of them) that will save you in the event of a hurricane or long term power failures. In addition, at half tilt, this will power two friges and a one ton portable A/C unit plus fans & lights. I have seen a couple negative reviews on this product regarding noise, delivery, assembly, etc. basically, I think those folks are whiners and will tell you as an experienced generator user, this generator rates highly. Noise, let's face it, a generator is kind of noisy. This one is actually quieter than our previous Coleman with Briggs & Stratton engine same size. Assembly, 1/2 hour attaching wheels. Yeah, it really is a two person job, but one person can do it no problem. Fuel efficiency is very good compared to most this size. Power output is steady, check sine wave specs, better than most!!Delivery, right to our door in the garage and within a week of purchase. I will let you know more if I really need to use it, but I think overall, great value.

Honeywell Generator, January 30, 2011 By Jack870

Amazon had the best price on the Internet. It arrived four days after I placed the order!

Took less than 30 minutes to assemble the wheel kit, and was ready to start!

To my amazement, it cranked on the FIRST pull right out of the box!!

The color coded starting instructions are great, and very easy to understand! It is VERY user friendly!! Very easy to change the oil!

I have owned several generators, and consider this one to be very low noise.

I have this one hard wired to run my entire house. Plenty of power, and safe power to run computers and electronics!

The power cord that comes with the generator is OK to run several appliances, but is NOT heavy duty enough to wire into your breaker panel!!

I am 100% pleased with this generator!!

Hope you get all the parts..., January 21, 2011 By Gary M. (MA)

This is a wonderful generator. The problem I had: You need four flat washers to attach the wheels to the axle. I only got two. The instruction manual says they are 9/16. I figured no big deal, I took a ride to my local hardware store and got two more. When I got back the new ones didn't fit so I measured the two I did receive - 5/8. Had to go back to my local hardware again and get two 5/8. Other than that I am very satisfied. It is really quiet with the oversized muffler.
