Q: Hi,

Are the quick connect nozzles for the Generac 2700 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch?

by Kevin from Minnesota on July 30, 2013

A: The quick connect spray nozzles that come with this machine are 1/4".
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Does the Generac 2700 psi pressure washer have a shaft driven pump? if not what kind of pump is it?
by Mike from Ohio on May 01, 2013

A: Yes, the Generac model 6022 uses a direct drive/shaft driven axial cam AR brand pump. This AR pump is a sealed, maintenance free pump.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Does the Generac 2700 psi pressure washer have a low oil shut-off?
by Brian from Pennsylvania on February 13, 2013

A: Yes, all of the residential grade Generac brand pressure washers use a Generac OHV engine with a low oil level shut down feature built in.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Hi, could you please tell me if this (Generac 2700 PSI) has adjustable pressure levels? Thank you.
by Dan from Illinois on April 09, 2012

A: No, this Generac model 6022 does NOT have an adjustable pressure unloader valve installed on the pump. The only way you can adjust the pressure on this pump is by switching out the spray tips on the wand. The full psi rating comes from the red zero degree tip and the other tips reduce the pressure by about 150 psi each.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Reading the manual, I am not clear on how to go from detergent washing to rinsing quickly. Can you just unhook the siphon hose to the detergent bottle and clean it later?
by Bill on March 13, 2012

A: Yes, you can definitely remove the siphon hose from the detergent bottle and clean it later. However, it really isnt necessary. The way you go from water to detergent or detergent to water is by changing out the black spray tip that is included. You do not NEED to remove the siphon hose from the detergent container during operation but you can if you would like to.

In order to pull and spray detergent thru the siphon hose, you must use that black detergent spray tip that is included with the machine. Without it, you will NOT be able to spray detergent. To go back to rinsing, simply remove the black tip and insert any other tip that would be appropriate for that specific job.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Q: Bill,
I'm home owner looking for a power washer. Intended use is to clean lawn furniture, my dock, house siding---cedar shakes, and other power equipment. What would you recommend.

by Joe Tansey from New York on June 17, 2011

A: You can do gas or electric, but gas gives you the most options to do whatever you like. Something in the 2500 psi to 3000 psi would be more than ok. If you are looking to ever remove some paint, 3000 psi would then be your best bet and anything higher from there would be getting the job done quicker.

Thanks,

Q: I see the Generac 6022 has a "soap" nozzle. I also see the "ladder saver" will not work if your pressure washer requires a "black tip".

Will the ladder saver work with the Generac 6022?

Will the ladder ssver work with the Briggs & Strattton 20418?

by John from Georgia on May 15, 2011

A: You can use the ladder saver with either of these models. The only problem is you cannot dispense soap with the ladder saver and would have to purchase a down stream chemical injector. Basically what you would be doing would be keeping the detergent out of the pump.

Thanks,

Q: Does the psi of water flow going into the washer have to be 50 psi. Can it be less and still function properly?
by Tim from South Carolina on May 14, 2011

A: The pressure going into the pump does make a difference, but what you can do is take a 5 gallon bucket and fill it up, if you are able to do this in under 1 minute, you should have enough flow in order to use the pressure washer. Another thing to keep in mind would be the length of water hose you would be using going into the pump. This can dimish flow and pressure as well.

Thanks,

Q: Bill,
I have a question about the power washers. I'm looking for a power washer with a brass pump. Does the Generac or Briggs & Stratton 2700 PSI pressure washers have brass pumps?
Thank you,
Norman Purzycki

by Norman Purzycki from Michigan on April 30, 2011

A: Both Generac and Briggs & Stratton have pumps installed on their units that have aluminum housings (body) with brass heads. This is going to be typical on all residential grade gas pressure washers.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: What is the warranty and how would I would it get fixed if there was a problem?
by David from Pennsylvania on April 18, 2011

A: This model comes with a 2 yr. manufacturer's warranty. If you were to have any mechanical issues with the unit within that timeframe, you would simply contact Generac directly for a location of a Generac authorized service center. You may also visit their website www.generac.com to find a location in your area. The service center would then inspect the machine and make any necessary repairs under the warranty at no charge to you.

Small Woman, Big Jobs!
I am a small woman with big jobs to do. For years I have scrubbed our decks and porches by hand with brushes and hose sprayer. It took days.

I borrowed an inexpensive power washer from a friend, and decided to buy my own. I'm glad I chose the Generac because it's easy to use, does the job well, and I can move it around myself, even up the deck stairs!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Features

Why Didn't I Buy A Honda?
First of all I have to say that I worked at a nation wide equipment rental for 11 years and have operated and instructed customers on how to use pressure washers.

That being said I received my Generac 2700 PSI pressure washer and set it up and it worked great. The second time I used it, It wore my arm off trying to start it and it cut off when a load was put on it. I took it to the authorized service center to be told if it's bad gas I'll have to pay for the carb repair.

Won't Start! Sounds Like A Trend...
Got it for Christmas. Put it together. Followed instructions. Tried for days to start it with no luck. Has oil and gas. Checked spark plug and filters and lines. Company says contact Generac. Nearest repair service over an hour away.
Cons: Won't Start

Eric,
Since Warranty Service is so far away, you may want to contact Generac Tech Support at (888) 436-3722 x5381 to see if they have any advice.

Some of the reports we've gotten about the engine not starting are because the air filter is clogged with oil- the package gets tipped in shipping & the oil goes where it doesn't belong (even though it's not supposed to be tipped).

Cleaning the air filter, letting it dry completely & then re-installing it has been helpful in some cases. The same tipping may have fouled the spark plug with oil- you may want to check it to see if it needs cleaning as well (just be careful not to change the gap).

So far it has met my expectations, however I have only used it for 30 minutes. I will put it to the test as the weather get better.

Well Constructed, Powerful Washer- Reasonably Priced
This is an easy to assemble, powerful washer. The center of gravity is lower and maneuverability better than similarly rated washers from other brands.

New 6022 Will Not Start
Received my GENERAC yesterday and after quick assembly and filling with fresh fuel was ready to get started. Only problem is it will not start!

I tried multiple times with choke on and off as per owners manual. Yes it's full of oil with fuel and on/off switch in the "on" position.
Pros: Easy To Store

David,
You may want to pull the spark plug and check for oil that may have spilled on it during transport. Cleaning the oil off may help you get the engine started.

If that doesn't work, please click on the Service Center locator link at the bottom of our website, then click on the Generac link to find the Authorized Warranty locations close to you. We suggest you call them first to find out which has the shortest turn-around time. Be sure to bring a copy of your invoice with you.

Just What I Wanted
This pressure washer is just what I wanted. I researched and compared for a couple weeks before I purchased it.

It was packaged well. It was simple to put together- I added the supplied oil, put gas in it, and it started the 2nd pull.

I have used it approximately 25 hours so far, it starts the 1st or 2nd pull every time and runs flawlessly. So far I am very satisfied with this purchase, and thank you P.W.D. for making ordering so easy... and the FREE shipping was quick and great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

I Finally Did It
I'd been looking for about 6 months when I stumbled on the PWD website. Their price was better than any other I could find.

After finding out about Generac I decided to give them a try. When I finally decided to use the unit it really started on the FIRST pull.

My main goal was to wash my house but have some other options such as boat and car. I believe this unit will do what I need it to based on my first experience with the house.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, Features

Bought June 3rd And Still Waiting For Broken Air Cleaner
Posted an earlier review about being 3 weeks and my replacement air cleaner has still not been sent to the service center. The PWD "Expert" suggested I call Generac which I did. They said they could not help me because I'm not the service center so they can't tell me when the part will be off backorder.

The Service center has called them every week for 4 weeks now and they are given no ETA. So it's now a month staring at this thing in my garage and can't use it. Look online and on... more

Peter,
We apologize for the inconvenience! If the part is on backorder at Generac, then until a new shipment arrives no one will have them- although it would be nice if they could give you a timeframe to expect them.

Since you are our customer, we will be happy to contact our Generac rep on your behalf to see if there is a returned unit that they could pull an air filter from. That would at least get you up & running until the new parts arrive.

Slow Generac Warranty Service
Bought pressure washer from Pressure Washers Direct. Excellent service from them from sales to delivery.

First day of use the 25 ft high pressure hose busted. Called Generac for warranty service on hose. After a few phone calls they eventually took three weeks to replace the hose. In the meantime my project had to be on hold for three weeks.

Bad warranty service. Buy a brand where you will have better warranty service. First day of use the chain holding the fuel cover for the gas tank... more

I Love It!
I had a pressure washer for years made by Karcher; the pump was always screwed up. Couldn't find an economical replacement pump because the shaft coupler on this model was unique (hex head socket) and nobody apparently makes one. I tried everything and finally gave up and decided to buy a new washer made BY ANYBODY BUT KARCHER.

Researched for weeks before deciding on the Generac 2700 because it was one of the highest rated washers in this price range. But the big box stores in my area... more
