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: I looked at the spec sheet and the owner's manuals online but could not find the length of the 6024 hose.
by Andy from Pennsylvania on April 23, 2013

A: This model pressure washer comes with a 30ft high pressure hose.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What are the dimensions of this product when assembled? I see the dimensions you provide is unassembled. I have space considerations. Thank you
by Tony from Nevada on April 15, 2013

A: The assembled dimensions of this product are as follows:

-20 inches at the base of the machine from front to back
-16 1/2 inches wide from wheel to wheel
-42 inches tall from the ground up to the top of the handle
by Mike, Product Expert
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.

Great Product And Service
After reading a lot of reviews the positive comments sold me. It seemed that most of the negative ones dealt with damaged machines from shipping. I decided to take the chance.

Of course, I had some damage to a valve on the top of the gas tank. (Generac really needs to work on their packaging.) I called PWD customer service and they put me in touch with Mike Aletich he felt the part could be easily replaced and started looking into a replacement.

I then noticed the machine had a 196cc... more

Robert,
We've been working with the folks at Generac to improve the packaging, and working with the shippers to make sure they handle the units properly in transit.

I'm glad I had the chance to help, and appreciate your business and patience!

Will Not Start
I ordered this pressure washer. When I went to use it for the first time it would not start. I noticed when trying to start it it was leaking gas from the carburetor.

I called and was told to take it in for service. Really! A brand new pressure washer and I have to take it in for service. Well that is where it has been sitting for the last two weeks waiting for parts. So I have a brand new pressure washer that I haven't even been able to use - broken right out of the box.

Disappointing.more
Cons: Unreliable

Buddy,
Unfortunately, Federal Law doesn't allow an engine that has had gas in it to be re-shipped; it's an explosion/fire hazard. That's why we only carry pressure washers from companies that have a national service network.

It's a good idea to check on the progress of your repair regularly. You might also want to give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381 to see if they have a due date for the parts.

I understand how frustrating it can be- please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

10/30/13 Update: our files show that the air filter & carb were filled with oil, caused by the unit being tipped over during shipment. Shipping damage isn't covered under most warranties. We will work with the shipping company to make sure they pay attention to "Do Not Tip" instructions!

The Nightmare Continued, But Pwd/mike Is Awesome
This is follow-on to the review titled "It Only Lasted One Hour". The nightmare continued...

After the unit only lasted one hour, the diagnoses was a bad exhaust valve, rocker arm, and the engine would need to be rebuilt. Generac authorized the rebuild and I was told parts were on backorder. I had a hard time with now getting a rebuilt pressure washer from the start and it being only a month after the purchase.

With several calls to Generac and help from PWD/Mike I was told... more

Bad Mistake
Haven't been able to get my power washer started- very hard to pull. Very sorry I purchased it, won't do that again.
Cons: Unreliable, Difficult To Use, Wont Start, Hard To Pull

James,
I'm sorry you're having trouble starting your pressure washer, but please don't give up hope!

First thing, make sure you're using fresh gas, not old stuff hanging around from your lawn mower. Then be sure to let the water run through your unit before you crank it- that will prevent any vapor lock issues.

If you're still having problems starting the engine, please give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381. They will be able to help troubleshoot and refer you to local warranty service if you need it.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call them; they will probably ask for it.

One of the best purchases I've made in a long time.

Good Unit, Check After Opening
I purchased my unit from an online retailer, it arrived in expected time frame. The box was in good condition so I signed off on it. Upon opening the carton, I realized the plastic covering the gas tank cap was broken and the tank itself had a nice sized dent in the top right corner.

I called Generac and they said a new cap would be shipped (haven't received it as yet, 10 days after contact). To have the tank replaced, I would have to go to a warranty repair shop, have them order and... more

Product Expert
Dan,
I understand your frustration, and apologize for the inconvenience!

You may want to place a follow up call to Generac about the gas cap- with large companies it really is the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. Their warranty does require that one of their service locations takes care of any repair so they're sure it is done correctly.

Generac's quality control is usually excellent, but sometimes the shippers will stack boxes on their sides or upside-down which can result in what they call "concealed damage". There is usually a short time to file a concealed damage claim after delivery, and the shipper will want to inspect the packing materials.
