Has anyone compared the Generac GP generators vs the XG genertors?

I'm comparing the GP 6500 with 389 cc engine (splash lubrication) to the XG 6500 with a 410 cc industrial engine (oil pump pump lubrication). I would be using it for home emergency use, so I doubt I really need the industrial engine with oil pump. Over 10 years it will probably only get 100 hours on the engine mostly at a consistent 50% load with occasional short term peaks closer to max (toaster, sump pump coffee pot, etc). So I'm leaning towards the cheaper GP. But want to consider the following:Are they both easy to pull start? The biggest engine I pull start is my snowblower with a 250cc OHV Briggs. But when starting only the engine is turned, i.e. it's not engaged to the snowblower yet. The hardest thing I have to start is my power washer with a 160cc OHV Kohler. I think because it's directly connected to the pump which makes it harder to start.Is the XG industrial engine quieter than the GP engine?

It should have a reset button on the end of the generator, you will have to push hard and hold for a couple of seconds. If this does not help, it could be the reset has been destroyed. If this is not the problem you could also check the 110 outlet on the generator one of the wires could have come loose or blown loose when overloaded. If none of these are the problem you may have a bad generator which would be almost expensive as a new generator.
