Product Description


Introducing the latest RAMSOND® Elite 6500 Silent Diesel Generator.  This 6500 watt (6.5 kW) portable, silent diesel generator is suitable both as a stand-alone backup generator and for use at project/industrial sites. This highly versatile and rugged system has been designed to meet the quality and safety demands of both residential and commercial applications. Ramsond is a Detroit based company specializing in power generation products.

When you compare the Elite series to others, you will quickly notice many advantages that make the Elite series true to its name; elite. For example, the Elite series is one of the very few systems available in market that fully meets and complies with all US and Canadian quality and safety standards.  Many basement bargain suppliers simply disregard this important requirement and subject consumers to unsafe and substandard products.  

The Elite's comprehensively equipped control panel features an array of receptacles, displays and control functions. Not all generators are created equal. Appearances may look deceptively similar. However, it is the critical components integrated into a diesel generator that determine its performance and durability. For example, the ball bearings fuel lines, injector, fuel pump, piston rings in any generator are among the most critical components. They are subjected to substantial level of heat, corrosion and/or friction. Failure to use the best quality among these components will substantially shorten the life of the generator. Many diesel generators currently in the market use either substandard, secondhand or unqualified components. These generators are sold at much lower prices, although they look similar to the Ramsond Elite.. Ramsond generators use the most premium ball bearings. The ball bearings of Ramsond Elite series are manufactured by some of the world's leading producers, such as NSK, SKF or General Bearing. Ramsond diesel generators incorporate the latest innovations in power generation technology, such as the latest generation of AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator), laser balanced crankshaft, heavy duty flywheel, premium starter, fully copper alternator, premium fuel injector, East Penn (Deka) US made batteries and more. Again, all components are selected to ensure superior performance and durability. This is the reason that many suppliers offer short warranties (if any) or short warranties. In contrast, Ramsond provides one of the best warranties in the market for its Elite series. Ramsond Elite diesel generators are super quiet, powerful, versatile and safe.   

Ramsond Elite 6500 uses a true 186FA (E), 11 HP, 418 cc engine. Many suppliers supply similar appearance generators (with misrepresented claims of output). However, a detailed inquiry quickly reveals that these other generators are equipped with a substandard and primitive 408cc (186F) engine, which produce only 9 HP. Therefore, the rated power for those generators can typically reach a maximum of 4.7-4.9 kW. However, Ramsond Elite series provides a true 6500 W maximum power engine (actually tested at 6.9 kw max surge output).

With its standard preheating element, anticorrosion exterior finish and moisture and water resistant control panel, the Elite series is designed and tested to operate in the harshest environments and start in frigid climates with ease.

All Ramsond Elite series are ATS READY, for use as an Auto-Start back-up generator.  Simply connect the optional microprocessor controlled ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) to your Elite series and at the instance of power outage, the Microprocessor Controlled ATS will quickly start your Elite Generator and maintain power to your home, office or jobsite.

90% Reduction in Harmful Emissions
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)

Ramsond's commitment to environmental responsibility extends equally to its power generation division. Pollution emitted by diesel fueled engines detrimentally impacts our air quality and environment. At Ramsond, we are deeply committed to producing cleaner, greener and more efficient products. Our commitment to quality is not only evident in the durability of our products, but the manner in which they coexist with the environment. For this reason, and in compliance with EPA regulations and other international environmental directives, all Ramsond diesel generators are equipped with Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs).
What is a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst?

A Diesel Oxidation Catalyst or "DOC" is a device which breaks down pollutants from diesel engines in the exhaust stream, turning them into less harmful components. DOC is a honeycomb shaped configuration which is coated in a catalyst. It is designed to trigger a chemical reaction to reduce harmful emissions. It is a ‘fit and forget’ solution requiring no maintenance.

DOCs oxidize harmful hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) and turn them into environmentally friendly water and carbon dioxide. This technology reduces emission of HCs and CO by up to 90%. Please click on the image below to view an animation on how a DOC works.

Installed Cold Start Pre-heater

All Ramsond Elite generators are equipped with a pre-heater glow plug element. The glow-plug remains on in the air intake passage and ensures that diesel fuel mixture vaporizes easier in the combustion chamber making starting easier for cold or during cold starts. It also has been proven to increase the efficiency of the generator.


Electrical Starter with Wireless Remote Control

All Ramsond Elite series generators come equipped with Electrical Start (key operated), as well as installed with wireless remote controlled starter. The wireless remote starter allows the operator to turn the Elite generator on and off from distances of up to 150 feet.

ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)

All Ramsond Elite series are ATS READY and equipped with a 5 prong quick-connect ATS receptacle. When connected to the Elite generator, the ATS can continuously monitor the municipal electrical current. At the instance of loss of power, the microprocessor controlled ATS system sends a command to the generator's ignition system to start. The ATS will keep the generator running until such time that the municipal power is resumed, at which time it will send a command to the generator to shut off. The optional ATS is easy to connect and affordable. ATS is a highly recommended option, specially when your Elite series is intended for use as a back-up generator. The ATS microprocessor unit itself is not included with the generator set.

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2013

    made this purchase to power my travel trailer for off ramp, and rest area overnite power. remote works like a dream, is quieter than I thought it would be, very nice. The real plus with this purchase has been the after purchase customer service. I had a problem with shipping, made a call, and Ramsond solved the issue. They have answered all my questions about the operation of this unit no matter how small they sounded, the questions were important to me even though probably not to Ramsond Corp. Overall I would very much recommend to anyone this generator unit and the Ramsond Corp...outstanding customer service.
