  2 Questions
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,

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.

Product Expert
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.

Good Machine
The ONLY con I have vs this pressure cleaner is that shortly after I start pressure spraying, within the first minute or so, I get a momentary drop in pressure. This is after I have filled the water line before I start the machine. The pressure always returns, the job is always completed and no harm done.

Just makes me wonder--!
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Ed Recommends This Generac Product
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Ed,
As well as filling the water line, it's a good ideal to pull the spray wand trigger and let the water run for a bit before you start the engine.

This gets all the air out of your garden hose, the pump, and the high pressure hose; and should eliminate the "burp" of pressure drop you've been experiencing.

It started the first time I pulled (I followed instructions) and powerwashed my deck. I shut it down and it started on the first pull when I started it up again.

I was impressed when I opened the box on how easy it was to put it together, and I loved where the hose connections are located. I'm very happy about this purchase and I would recommend this to my friends and family if they needed a power washer to purchase this one...

Suits Our Needs
I purchased a Generac Generator and found it suited our needs or exceeds them. Shipment, assembly and start up use was easy and user friendly.

It runs quietly and problem free to this point. Based on that I sought out the 2500 pressure washer and I am impressed with the ease of use, movement and assembly. It runs quietly, starts easily and provides all the pressure and cleaning ability that any average home user would need.

Prior to this washer I had purchased an electric washer by... more

What A Machine!
After getting some estimates for power washing my house, patio, and driveway ($1,800), I decided to to save some bucks and try it myself. I ordered the Generac 2500 psi unit and the Karcher T-Racer Hard 12" Surface Cleaner. The order was received in two days. It was easy to assemble and the Generac started on the second pull.

All I can say is, "Wow!". This is a great tool to have for DIY homeowners. The house siding looks like new and the Karcher Hard Surface Cleaner works... more

Happiness Is....
My new pressure washer is a gem. It arrived on time in excellent condition. Assembly was a snap. The engine started with two pulls.

My first project was cleaning heavy mildew plus other stuff on my concrete 16 W. driveway, walkways and back patio. The pressure washer did a great job.

I'm a near-80 yr. old retired guy and home owner in West Palm Beach, FL. I easily survived the work, thanks to the ease and excellent operation of this product.

Pwd And Generac Power Washer 6020
This arrived just a couple of days after I ordered it from PWD. The assembly instructions were easy to follow. I completed it all with no help from anyone, and just took a few minutes to complete. After adding the oil and fuel and attaching to the water supply, it started on the very first pull.

We used it for three days straight cleaning our very large decks and rails, siding, and driveway. It works great, is much quieter than our old power washer and quieter than all of our neighbors'... more

Best Pressure Washer For The Cost !
I tired of the electric pressure washers lack of power and the hassel of dragging power cords around the house.

After researching multiple brands I chose the Generac 6020 and am thrilled with my decision. Shipping was super fast to my home and the assembly was minimal and quick.

I have used the pressure washer on my siding, deck, cars and removed a big paint spill that has been on the road in front of my driveway for two years.

I would definitely reccomend this pressure washer... more

Replacement For An Old Washer...
It takes 2 pulls & starts right up, runs 'til it's out of gas...fill it up, 2 pulls & go all day.

The only thing is the old Sears model came with 5 nozzles, and this unit has 3. The Sears nozzles are better, but I also realize u can get different ones so not a problem...

Patricia,
As long as the nozzles on the old unit use the same quick-connector and were rated for 2500PSI or more, you can use them on your new unit.

The 3 that come with the Generac are the most often used; other nozzles can be found on our web site under Spray Tips, Turbo Nozzles, and Soap Nozzles.

This unit comes with a 2 year Factory Warranty, so you may want to give the folks at Generac a call, toll free at (888) 436-3722 x5381 or use their Service Center Locator to find the Authorized Service nearest you.

If you call, please have the serial number from your pressure washer handy. If there are several locations available, you may want to call around first to find out who has the shortest turn-around time. You will also need a copy of your invoice for the Warranty service.

Did A Great Job On My Atv & Dirt Bike
I received the pressure washer in just a few days and used it immediately to clean up my four wheeler and dirt bike. It was easy to set up and use and did a great job.

I'm very pleased with the price and quality of the product and I would purchase it again.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Features, I'd Buy It Again

Great Machine For The Money.
The machine came out of the box with a broken handle. That was Generac's fault for poor packaging, but it was replaced within a month.

I have used it to clean my deck, mowers, and a host of other things. It starts with 1 or 2 pulls everytime. I've only used the soap hose feature once so the jury is still out on that.

I would recommend this machine to anyone to use around the house or light commercial use. I bought the Generac based on my experience with other Generac products.

Amazing Results
I bought the 6020 along with the B&S 12" surface cleaner- the results were amazing. Yes, the surface cleaner looks a little flimsy and cheap, but it works flawlessly. I did have to unscrew the nozzle and clean it with a pin twice in about 6 hours of use, but it saved me so much time it didn't matter.

The pressure washer itself is quality - powerful enough to take care of any household duty. Not too loud, and the motor starts on the first pull. I cleaned the pool decking... more

My first pressure washer, and I was very impressed with the entire unit. no issues.

Out of the box it started right up. It is easy to work with, and great for small and large jobs.

Good Machine
Assembly was very easy to do. Starting the unit was also easy and reliable on restart. The pressure blasted the dirt off nicely.

I cleaned my heat pump enclosure and had to remove mildew. I used Jomax and it worked well.

I do wish I had the on-board soap holder for convenience. I am considering adding some attachments after I get the full hang of the unit. I am still learning about pressure washing in general and the unit in particular.

Robert,
Some folks use a paint can hanger (kind of an "S" shape to hold the can on a ladder) to make moving a soap bucket easier- perhaps that would help.

Power Washing My Deck & Siding
This washer did a good job... Everything was easy except the first start. I had to get a neighbor to come over both days for that.

I could start it easily enough after, to add gas or move it up the stairs of the deck but I gave up after about 20 tries on that first start. I can start all my other equipment but not this one. I am a 70 year old grandmother who still does all of my own maintenance.

Product Expert
Nina,
Gas engines, even small ones, do take a little break-in time; we're glad there was a neighbor handy to help get you going.

Please make sure you have squeezed the spray trigger and let water run through the unit before you try to start it. It gets all the air out of the pump, and makes it easier to get the engine going.

Using fresh gasoline will make it easier to start, too- if gas sits around for a while, it doesn't burn as easily.

Details!
The Generac unit seems to be working properly so far. It starts easily and seems to have a quality wand or "squirt gun" as my son calls it.

If I had to find one complaint, it would be that the unit likes to "walk". If the ground is not perfectly level the vibration will cause the machine to move, quite a bit. I think this is a common issue with smaller washers.

The unit came quickly, in perfect condition, and assembly was a breeze.

I was disappointed with... more

Generac Powerwasher With Mtm Hydro Foamer
The Generac 6020 powerwasher and MTM Hydro Foamer attachment work very well together. No complaints with either.

I've used the combination 4 times now since purchasing 2/11/13. The power washer runs smoothly and quietly. It took a bit of experimentation to get the Foamer to work right, but I found that adding about 3-4 oz of Chemical Guys SnowFoam to 3/4 container of water coats the car beautifully in white thick foam.

Pressure Washers Direct delivered both at/ahead of schedule.

Great!
I bought this to replace no less than 3 electric models that petered out after a year. So far, this one has been great.

I runs quiet (like their generators do). It has more power and started the 2nd pull.

I could not be more pleased.

What A Machine- P.s.
I wanted to add one important detail. With the Karcher unit, you essentially receive a 3 foot wand extension you can use on the Generac.

That was a big help on the siding and keeps you away from the spray.

Ladder Saver First Job
I purchased the ladder saver online after seeing the YouTube video. I thought this would be very helpful, considering you don't have to get on the ladder.

I didn't want to use the upstream method of soaping thru your pump and that is what this does unless you buy another part. It's good for rinsing only.

I should've looked into this purchase more thoroughly. But I will just use it for rinsing purposes.
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Michael,
If you take a look at the Features we list for the Ladder Saver, you will see:
"Soap Application Will Only Work With Downstream Injection; •Ladder Saver won't apply soap if your unit uses a black tip for
•detergent application (downstream injectors are sold separately); •Ladder Saver will spray soap if you can apply detergent with any tip"

Downstream soap application happens after the pump. Many commercial units use it; but not many consumer units have it including the 6020 Generac.

If you have a consumer-grade pressure washer with quick connectors, the Briggs & Stratton 2nd Story nozzles or the MTM Hydro Jet Foamers might be better choices for long range soap application.

First Use
I have used the washer once....washed everything in sight...deck, patio, car, etc. Fantastic!

But wait for it...the stiff water hose has a habit of wrapping around the hot motor...melting the outer protective hose skin. I've had to tape the hose to the upper handle.

The hose hanger is useless...other than that it's great!

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
I received my Brand New Generac in three short days. Needless to say, I was impressed with PWD. That's where the excitement ended. Assembly was rather simple. However, attaching the handle to the machine was a nightmare. It took twenty minutes of pulling and tugging before it seated properly. Two days later, I was ready for my first power wash project (driveway & sidewalk. I rolled the washer out onto the driveway and proceeded to fill the tank with gas.

Worth The Money
I bought this model to clean my deck, & when used with deck cleaning chemicals it works great. It's easy to start & easy on gas.

However when I received my pressure washer the high pressure hose had a kink in it from the manufacturer. I called Pressure Washers Direct and had a replacement hose within a week.

Great customer service- I would use this company again.

Hose is cheap. Blew out on first use, but when you see it you can understand that should not be unexpected.

Haven't used with soap yet. Overall it is OK.

Generac Power Washer
I bought the Generac gas power washer to clean my decks, vinyl siding and 4 wheeler. I love the fact that I am not limited to the length of an extension cord. And this powerwasher has enough cleaning power that I dont have to stand all day long to get the job done. It is light and very mobile. The motor is a pull start and up to this point has fired up after minimal pulls.

I purchased additional nozzles and just use a milk jug for the cleaning chemicals. It works just fine. I also... more

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.
