Q: My application is for spraying 35 feet tall
River Birch trees with "SEVEN" insect killer.
There is a worm infestation each year. I need to spray up into the branches and leaves as well as spray the top of the trees.
I would use a "reservoir" tank to feed the
solution to the pump. Money is tight. Thanks for your help.

by James Bacon from South Carolina on August 18, 2011

A: This machine on its own will not spray detergent or chemical at that distance. You can only pull detergent from the tank and spray it at low pressure. This is common on most pressure washers. Also, I would not recommend that you run any chemical thru this machine that is not rated for use with a pressure washer.

For your application, I would suggest that you purchase a high pressure soap shooter nozzle. You could run any chemical you wish thru the product and it would also allow you to spray at the distance you need to. I am posting a link below to the product I am referring to:

GP High Pressure Soap Nozzle

Q: I am looking for a pressure washer for cleaning the vinal siding and wooden decks at my house. I also need to add an extension to the wand as I have to go up about sixteen feet to get the top of the siding.
by Rich Jones from Arkansas on May 31, 2011

A: This unit would work for what you are wanting to do. In terms of the extension wand. I would suggest using a high pressure soap shooter instead. The reason being, you really need to have a 3/8" supply line going to the extension wand and this unit comes with a 1/4" hose. So you would have to purchase a new hose as well and now the cost is going to go up.

Thanks,

Surprise!!!!!!!!!
I always buy the upgraded model, but not in this case. I bought the entry model and it performed beyond all expectations. It started right away and I ran it for 4 hours straight for two consecutive days. This is a very good value!!!!!!!
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Great Power Washer
I have had 2 power washers before this one and this power washer is very quiet and seems to have more power than it states.

The horizontal pump is a better pump than vertical pump and easier to connect the hoses. I love this power washer.

Does What A Power Washer Is Supposed To Do
Purchased this Generac 2500 PSI gas power washer just before it was getting into freezing temps. On a warm day before my water hoses had frozen, I assembled it.

The instructions were clear and assembly went well. Followed the directions for fueling and putting in oil and hooking up the water supply. Started it up. Running for for the first 30 to 60 seconds, the water pressure came out high and then would drop off to nothing, and repeated a few times. Then went consistently high.

Robert,
The next time you use your pressure washer you may want to try squeezing the trigger and letting water run through the unit for a minute or two before you start the engine.

This gets all of the air out of the pump, and should eliminate the high/low pressure situation. It will also make the engine easier to start.

Good Pressure Washer
The Generac Pressure Washer appears to be pretty well built and works as designed. I have used pressure washers before but this is the first I have owned so don't have much to compare it to.

The first time I used it, it started right up and seemed to be working properly but after about 5 minutes the pump appeared to lose prime and the pressure dropped to nothing but would come back briefly and then go away. I turned the unit off and checked everything but could not find any problems. I... more

Martin,
I'm glad your pressure washer is performing well. Usually when the pump appears to lose prime it's because of in interruption in the water supply; or there could have been air in the pump.

Please make sure your garden hose is at least 5/8" in diameter and no longer than about 30 feet so your pressure washer gets enough water. Checking occasionally to make sure your garden hose hasn't kinked is also a good idea- your pump needs a steady supply of water to keep itself cool.

It's also a good idea to hook up the water supply, then pull the trigger on the spray gun and let the water run through the unit for a bit before you start the engine. This drives all the air out of the pump (and makes the engine easier to start).

You may want to give the folks at Generac a call about the wheels- they should be running smoothly, and they are covered by your Factory Warranty. Their toll free number is (888) 436-3722 x5381. Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them; they will ask for it.

Small And Reliable Machine For The Homeowner
I received the machine on time and well packed. Easy to unpack and since it is almost ready to run (just install the handle) read instructions, add oil and gas, hook up hoses- and with just one pull it started. I was able to do my back deck in no time!

My next project it is my driveway and sidewalk. and then the house siding. I found that the PSI is enough for power washing around the house. The machine looks good and no doubt it is of good quality for the money.

I am happy with my... more

Poor Quality
Right out of box during the first use it had a hole in hose. I had to go buy a new hose.

I would like a new hose, that's the only way I would change my review. Please send me a new hose.
Cons: We Used It For The First Time Saturday Hose Had Hole In It

Teresa,
The Factory Warranty on your pressure washer will cover the hoses & spray tips for 90 days from the date of delivery. Please give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381.

The Factory Warranty covers defects in manufacture and workmanship. It will not cover wear and tear situations like burning the hose on a hot muffler, or having the hose burst because it got a kink in it.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call Generac; they will ask for it to set up your claim. If you need a copy of your invoice, just click on "My Account" in the top right corner of our website and follow the prompts.
