Q: I have looked at this model at other sites and it showed it has low oil engine shut down. Does this one have that? Also would like to know how to find out if there any service centers in my area.
by Carol from Tennessee on February 25, 2014

A: This engine does have the low oil shut down feature.

I have included a link so that you can enter your zip code to find Generac Service Centers in your area. Just select "Power Washers Sales and Service" from the drop down menu.

Q: what is the fuel tank capacity on the Generac 6024?
by Bian from New Jersey on March 13, 2013

A: The 3000psi Power Washer, model 6024, has a fuel capacity of 3.2 quarts (approximately 0.8 gallons). The fuel capacity listed is the total interior volume for the fuel tank. Air space is required to allow for expansion of the gasoline during warmer temperatures, so the actual amount of gasoline in the tank may not reach a full 3.2 quarts (0.8 gallons).

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: I'm hoping that I can haul this in my pickup with canopy without having the lie it on its back or side. How tall is it to the top of the handle? The specs show 21" high which seems really low for what I'm seeing in the picture.
by Ron from Washington on February 20, 2013

A: The spec dimensions are the shipping dimensions. The product itself stands 40 1/2 inches high.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Who makes the engine?
by Mike on March 16, 2012

A: This model pressure washer uses a Generac branded engine. Generac makes their own engines for these pressure washer. The engine on this model is the same engine that is used on the Generac GP series generators that Generac offers.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: what is the warranty breakdown . how long of a warranty on the pump?
by Nate on March 14, 2012

A: The Generac model 6024 comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty. The entire machine is covered under the warranty period. The only thing that is not covered under the warranty is normal wear and tear items such as the wheels and detergent tanks. Also, the seals in the pump are not covered under the warranty. Seals in a pump are never covered under a warranty though, regardless of brand.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Will this unit (Generac 6024) be too powerful for washing a car? Will one of the rotating brushes cut down on the pressure?

I am planning on using unit to clean siding and patio and thought washing cars would be a bonus.

by Scott from Maryland on September 27, 2011

A: For your applications, this is the perfect size pressure washer. This amount of psi is a little too much for washing a vehicle. However, if you use the white spray tip and make sure you stay at least 12 inches away from the vehicle's surface, you would be ok and not cause any damage to the surface.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Do you ship this item to Australia? If so, how much would shipping be?
by Jacque on March 31, 2011

A: Unfortunately we do not ship products outside of the U.S. Sorry, I would be unable to quote you on shipping this product to Australia.

Sprung A Leak
The power washer was easy to assemble and worked great for about two hours. It then sprung a small leak in the hose. When I tired to stop it from flopping around, it punctured a hole in my finger. I called Generac. The lady was helpful and offered to send me a new hose.

She said the part was on back order for 10 days. When I didn't receive the part within two weeks, I called again and was told it was on back order for 10 days. I now have a half-finished patio and no idea when I will... more

Cheryl,
We usually keep this hose in stock, so in this circumstance we usually would have sent you the hose and asked Generac to send the replacement to us. Unfortunately we are also waiting on a shipment to arrive from Generac. Sometimes a shipment gets delayed in the import or manufacture process and it throws a wrench in the works.

I understand your project isn't finished, and I apologize for the inconvenience. The good news is Generac will ship all their customer backorders before they fill their vendor orders, so once the hoses arrive yours should ship before we receive ours.

Calling to follow up with Generac is a good idea, just to make sure they keep the ball rolling.

Only Okay
I purchased this unit about 2 months ago. Price from Pressure Washer Direct (PWD) was good, and evaluations were good. My experience with this washer is at best okay.

First, when the washer was delivered there was damage. The plastic spray gun was busted and 3 of the tips were busted and the frame was bent. I called and emailed PWD and got a quick courteous and helpful response. They replaced the broken parts quickly and with minimum effort (a great customer service department).

Great Investment
We researched many power washers, looking for substantial power for a good price. We hit all the usual places & big home improvement stores and found they didn't have what we wanted. In fact their prices were all a bit higher.

So we opted for the Generac Model 6024 with 3100psi. The price was lower than the other local places and we got free shipping. The first pressure washer arrived damaged with the box saturated in oil. Seems the delivery company dropped it, twice! Returning it was... more

"Dealing with PWD was excellent. When the first washer arrived damaged, PWD was very helpful and quick in responding in helping us get the replacement. Professional, courteous and the website was easy to maneuver. The delivery company would get 1 star. But PWD gets 5 stars for the way the dealt with the situation and quickly getting a replacement sent out."

Very Pleased
I am very pleased with the Generac Pressure washer. The only thing I would change if I were the engineer on it- I would separate the two hose connections, in and out, so you would have more room to connect and disconnect them with your hand.

Otherwise I am very pleased so far after using it five or six times.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Quiet

Just Received
I bought this as a mid-range priced pressure washer. I have used this 3 times now cleaning driveway and sidewalk to house and for pressure washing part of house.

Everything works great, detergent tanks work as they are supposed to, starts up 1st or 2nd pull.

All in all it has worked great as expected.

Cleans Great
Came quickly. Set up was easy. Cleans great. Easy and fun to use. Will run an hour or two on a tank of gas.

Only problem is that the plastic feed from the gas tank to the carb broke. (Is that supposed to collect and recycle fumes in the tank?) Anyway, it doesn't affect the operation. (Good thing I'm not in CA anymore.)

Everyone should have one of these.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Fast

Barrie,
You may want to give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381 for a replacement tube. Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them; they will probably ask for it.

A Month Later...
Received this unit October 4, 2013. Ran 15 minutes and found the fuel tank leaking at the middle seam. Called Generac, delivered it to a local service center same day.

Nov 1, 2013 - Service Center told me that Generac does not have part numbers for the fuel tank yet so can't order a new tank. So, one month gone and no pressure washer yet to use. More later if I get it back.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Delay Being Able To Use It

Has To Go In For Warranty Work After 6 Months If Light Use
Bought for around the home, mostly light duty use. However, three months after use it started to give problems. It makes a surging/ sucking sound when on and idling every 30 seconds when warmed up. When cold, I have to wait about a minute of pressing the trigger on and off for something to "catch" so it can give me pressure.

Not happy with purchase. Thought Generac was more reliable than this. It has been six months and I have to look about taking it in for warranty work. I do not recommend!
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable
Sanjeev Does Not Recommend This Product
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Sanjeev,
There's a couple things you may want to check before taking it in for warranty- usually surging is a water supply issue.

It's important to squeeze the trigger and let the water run through the pump for about a minute BEFORE you start the engine. This drives all the air out of the pump, and prevents vapor lock (that's the waiting for "something to catch" part).

The other thing to check is your garden hose. Your Owner's Manual says the garden hose can be no longer than 50 feet; it should be at least 5/8" in diameter, and hooked up to city water to get enough water to your pump so it doesn't surge. If you have the garden hose wound very tightly on a reel it can also impede the flow of water. If your pressure washer pump is getting enough water it should run smoothly.

Please also make sure the filter screen where the garden hose attaches is free from grit & debris. Any blockage there will also cause your pump to surge.

If it turns out you do need warranty service, there are 3 Service Centers within 5 miles of your zip code. Just click on this Generac Service Centers link for their contact information.
