Generac Pressure Washer Review - Model #6596
This is an excellent pressure washer. I am very impressed with the performance. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a reliable pressure washer. The customer service department at Pressure Washers Direct is outstanding! And the tax free and free shipping are a few of the benefits that they offer.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Oil Capacity Not Specified

I Was Excited, Now Not So Much!
It was easy to put together and difficult to start the first time. The second time I used it the pressure hose had a hole in it. Things got crazy after that. I have only had it for one month and I had to replace the hose.

Also, even when connections seem tight, water from the garden hose shoots out every where. The location of the heat exhaust (?) is crazy and you have to be very very careful not to let the pressure hose come in contact with it or I am certain it would melt it quickly.

Sally,
In your Owner's Manual Engine Starting Checklist it says "confirm the system is purged of air". This means to hook up the water supply, then squeeze the spray gun trigger and let water run through the unit BEFORE starting the engine to drive out any air in the pump.

Since the pump and the engine are connected, air trapped in the pump will make the engine very hard to start. Clearing the air out will make the engine much easier to start. Your manual also says "After each starting attempt, where engine fails to run, always point gun in safe direction, and squeeze spray gun trigger to release high pressure."

There are also several cautions in the Owner's Manual about avoiding contact with the hot muffler. Making sure the hose doesn't kink or flip over the muffler during use does take some extra effort. It helps to stop spraying, move the hose, then continue spraying instead of trying to drag the hose around without stopping your cleaning.

You may find that a couple wraps of Teflon plumbers tape (less than a dollar at any grocery or hardware store) around the garden hose connection will help prevent leaks. Adding a garden hose quick connect (plastic ones are about 5 dollars) will save your knuckles and cut down on leaking as well.

Hoping For The Best
Received my Generac model 6596 30 min ago. I haven't even started it yet but I had to stop and write this review.

1) It came damaged. Like others have mentioned, I don't have a broken gas cap, I have a smashed gas tank. Seems it was dropped and the top of the gas tank is crushed about 3/8 of an inch. Good news, it doesn't look like it will affect the unit. The gas cap seals well and all seams look solid.

I immediately called Generac and they do not replace gas tanks. I was told to call a... more

David,
Thank you for providing us with your detailed review of the 2800 PSI residential grade pressure washer. We are sorry to learn of the damage incurred to your unit during its shipment. As you have already noted, these issues can be remedied by an independent authorized service provider, and by processing a freight claim through the assigned shipping company. Please note that the independent authorized service provider closest to you can be located online by using your local postal code for searching purposes via the following link: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator?cid=frm-105-ab.
Also, as you have alluded, the unit features an oil capacity of 20 ounces (0.6 liters). The “H” on the dipstick is the high (full) mark. When adding oil, it should be added to the “H” marking. Please note that these units are tested at the factory, and there may be oil left in the crankcase. Always utilize the dipstick when adding oil to ensure that the unit is not overfilled.
During operation, when the oil level reaches the “L” mark, that means the oil level is low, and oil should be added. The oil capacity information, as well as other specifications for this unit, are located on the product's spec sheet. To locate a copy of this documentation online, search the model or serial number for the unit here: http://www.generac.com/service-support/product-support-lookup?cid=frm-105-ac.
Lastly, if you have any other product-related comments, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722). We do apologize for any issues this unfortunate situation may have caused.

Good Machine. The Service Was Great!
I was searching for a reliable machine when I found Direct on the net. I read their evaluations and was impressed by their depth of knowledge. So, I bought one.

The machine was delivered promptly. However, the gas cap had been damaged during shipping. I contacted Direct. No problem. No hassle. I received a new cap very quickly.

The machine was easy to assemble. It started with two cranks. Wow!

Good machine. Great service!

Great Value For Money!!

Was a few days late (back-ordered), but no problem, and straight out of the box it worked GREAT!

2 things need addressing tho, and these have been mentioned in other reviews:

Firstly the documentation regarding the engine oil.

The unit ships with a 20oz "bottle" of SAE 30, but I had to search on line to find the capacity of the engine. The capacity is 20oz, BUT it ships with 2-3 ozs of... more

Works Great!
I finally got to use my new washer for the first time to clean my concrete driveway. I added the oil and gas to proper level, set the motor to run, and with one pull the motor fired right up!

I ran it till it ran out of gas, refilled it and with one pull it fired up again! Not only does it run good it cleans very well also. Be careful, there is a lot of pressure coming out and can damage objects if left in one place too long.

I've had several pressure washers but this is the best one... more

Not The Quality I Expected
Bought this based on reviews. So far I am not impressed. Getting ready to take in for service the second time.
First time just after getting it with probably about 3 hours of running it developed a high pressure water leak.
Now with about 12 and no more than 15 hours of use on it, there are times it does not have pressure and the stop switch does not work.

Excellent Pressure
Fairly easy to use.

The connection to the water supply is in a tricky place on the machine, but not a big problem. Easy interchangeability of the nozzles is a big plus. Excellent pressure and easy-to-use wand. The pressure hose frequently gets in the way of the wheels when moving the machine.

The first 5 star rating goes to the Generac # 6596. Great unit. From unpacking to set - up, and on to using it, everything went flawlessly.

Product arrived without a scratch, very well packaged. Set - up went without a problem, everything was included and went together perfectly. Start up was the best, followed all the instructions. Added oil & gas and on the second pull it was going.

I have used it for approx. 15 hrs an have no problems what so ever, and it has always started on... more

The Real Deal ...
Totally satisfied with my purchase and the quick handling of my order by PED (arrived at my door 2 days before the expected delivery date).

This power washer came highly recommended in the reviews I researched, the unit not only met but exceeded my expectations. The engine starts the first time and every time, the pump is reliable, powerful and the water connections/header is located for easy access.

I would recommend this unit to a friend looking for the top end of affordable equipment.

Hard To Assemble
I found the directions somewhat difficult, although I see that others didn't have this problem!

Once I got it figured out, it did a terrific job and has tremendous pressure. It took years of black mildew and moss and gunk off of the old brick steps and they look as if they're brand new!!

Some people reviewing this model say that it's really loud, but I actually disagree. In fact, I've used MUCH louder pressure washers!

This was a quick delivery, simple installation out of the box. Started on first pull, works great.

Used it five times so far with zero issues. Easy to maneuver around. Plenty of pressure to do jobs around home, siding, bird bath, chairs, driveway,etc.

Well designed, just need to be careful hoses stays away from engine.

This Is The Second Purchase From Advice Sought Thru Ped
After owning a few electric pressure washers thru the years, I was seeking something that would provide the pressure I wanted and to last for more than one season.

From the reviews on the site I chose the Generac and happy I did. Adequate power and ease of mobility come first to mind as well as easy starting, quietness and low gas consumption.

A winner in my book.

I'll admit I had never heard of Generac pressure washers until visiting your site. I ordered the Model 6596 because of your recommendation. Very pleased.

Plenty of power, starts quickly, and goes a good while on a tank of gas. Operating instructions are fair, but oil and gas capacities are not listed at all. Nice lady at customer service didn't know either and admitted the instructions need to be updated. BTW, oil capacity is 20 oz.

I bought this unit for "around the house" and am completely satisfied with it. It operates great, is easy to use and maintain plus takes up very little space when stored.

The outlet pressure is what I wanted and I didn't want an electrical powered unit. The price was not high and was a good buy.

We unboxed our pressure washer, gassed it up, read and followed all the instructions. First pull on starter and unit fired right up. Very surprising.

Have pressure washed for over 5 hrs at this point. No complaints. I love the fact that gas tank is large enough to allow me to wash for over 1 hour before re-fueling.

Read other reviews. They helped. Only needed to add 8 oz. of oil out of the quart supplied. Smoked for 5 minutes after starting. (Started on 2nd pull.)

Pressure washed a concrete deck for 2 hours and was pleased with its performance. I have owned two pressure washers before this one.

Kept the washer positioned so the hose was always on the opposite side of the muffler to avoid problems others mentioned.

Thanks to lingering warm weather in WV, I was able to put it together and give a test drive. I thought it might be Spring before I would have been able to do so, but Winter is on hold here and I fired it up.

Cheap Hose & Pump
PW engine/motor is fine. PW hose is cheap made plastic, when touched muffler it melted.

Axial pump lasted for 2 months. Worked fine, ran out of gas restarted motor pump would not pump.

I had to to drive 75 miles to repair shop for warranty repair. You get what you pay for. Never buy one with axial pump.

Product Expert
David,
Your pressure washer is covered by a 2 year Factory Warranty through the folks at Generac, so your pump repair should have been covered as long as the problem was due to a defect in materials or workmanship.

Axial pumps are designed to provide good, economical service for homeowner's use; triplex plunger pumps are more expensive, but are better suited to commercial use.

Any high pressure hose would be damaged by coming in contact with a hot muffler- even commercial-grade hoses. Unfortunately this kind of damage is not covered by and brand's Factory Warranty.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

We are sorry to learn of your product's issues.

To locate an independent authorized service provider closest to you, please use your postal code for searching purposes here: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator?cid=frm-105-ab .

Also, as EGD has alluded, when a hose comes into contact with a hot muffler, damage is likely to be incurred. Considering this, we recommend keeping the hose from making contact with the muffler when operating your personal unit.

Great Pressure Washer
Generac 2800 is a great pressure washer, couldn't be more happy about its performance and features! Also the compact size makes it easy to maneuver around you house.

Delivery was fast and package was in great shape when it arrived to front of my house. It was easy and fast to get started right from the delivery box. You just add the oil (comes with the package) and add gas and you are good to go!

Dog Tracks On Storm Door Eliminated!
Pressure washer works great. Initial impressions: Runs well, easy assembly if you read the instructions (don't try to lift it out of the box, cut the box from the washer - it is too heavy).

I also ordered the rotating tip to enlarge my cleaning area and an 24" extension to help get higher up on my house siding. The soap didn't have dilution instructions on the label so I guessed. Why would that simple item be missing?

Don,
You are right- the detergent instructions should be on the bottle. The good news is, this gallon bottle is already set up for the correct ratio of 1 part detergent to 10 parts water that most pressure washers deliver.

We cover it on our product page, too:
Easy To Use
•Just add to your on-board tank or drop in the siphon tube

Detergents that need to diluted first, then used with a pressure washer are usually called 'super concentrated' and come in a smaller container- but not always, so I understand your concern!

Very Satisfied!
First of all NO TAX and FREE SHIPPING! It arrived on time and in good condition. Assembly was quick and easy. The engine started after 2nd pull. I hooked up the water hose and started spraying.

Lots of power and does a good job. One minor complaint - they don't tell you how much oil to put in the engine and I overflowed it onto the floor. It does not take much and you have to be carefull not to overflow.

I would certainly buy it again.

Lorene,
I understand how the repair person's comments must have upset you. Maybe I can help...

If the unit was tipped over during shipping (which isn't supposed to happen, but sometimes does) oil can leak and coat the air filter and spark plug, preventing the engine from starting. This would be considered shipping damage, and isn't covered by any brand's Factory Warranty. It must be reported very soon after the unit is delivered, or the shipping company won't accept the claim.

If it started once and ran perfectly, then wouldn't run again there are a couple things that could be wrong. The easiest is that the vent in the gas cap is blocked- the vapors back up, and the engine won't start. Taking the gas cap off for a couple minutes, then replacing it and trying to start the unit again can help.

You can also try squeezing the trigger and letting the water run for a bit before starting the engine. This drives all the air out of the pump and prevents vapor lock. (Air in the pump makes the engine very hard to turn over.)

Usually we can step in and help during the first 30 days you have the unit. We are past that time frame, but we'd still like to see if we can help. If you would please send us a copy of your invoice (I'll email our fax number to you directly) I will be happy to see what we can do.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for your disappointment and inconvenience.

Totally happy in every aspect, except that one should know that if the unit does not start on the first pull, it can create a lot of pressure in the engine/crank making it impossible to pull the starter cord (feels like the engine has seized up or something). Simply pulling the trigger on the wand will release any built up pressure allowing for an easy start.

This is noted in the owners guide, but was a bit obscure and I missed it. My bad, but for a while, I was thinking that the unit was... more

Brad,
To reach a bit higher without spending a lot for a telescoping wand you might want to try this 2nd Story Soap & Rinse Nozzle Set. They snap right into the quick-connect fitting on your spray wand and throw the water a bit farther than standard nozzles.

You could add another 25 feet of extension high pressure hose without much of a drop in water power; just make sure it has M22 connectors to match your existing hose. Just click on this link to our High Pressure Hose page, click on View All, then click on the "Select Hose Connection" filter and choose M22 to see what we have available.

A quick reminder- extension hoses will have an adaptor to link 2 hoses together; a replacement hose will not have that adaptor- please make sure the hose you select says "Extension" or "Replacement/Extension" in the title.

Mts,
Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are sorry to learn of the issues that you have experienced with your unit and associated documentation. To start, please note that your manual states the engine oil level for your unit should be checked prior to each use, or every 8 hours of operation. Considering this, we are unable to determine the exact amount of oil that will be required for each fill period. To check and refill the engine's oil appropriately, place the power washer on a level surface, clean the area around the oil fill, remove the oil fill cap and wipe the dipstick clean. Next, screw the dipstick into the unit's filler neck. Lastly, verify the proper oil level on the unit's dipstick, add the recommended engine oil as necessary, and replace the oil fill cap and hand-tighten.

Secondly, in regards to the black plastic rotating nipple you have described, where is this located? Based on your description, we are unable to determine which part you might be referring to exactly. To gain insight regarding this part, and to help us explore applicable options for providing a remedy for your hose-related issues, please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722) with the serial number of your personal unit.

I apologize for the issues and understand how frustrating this can be. Engine powered equipment cannot be returned once it has been gassed or oiled due to federal shipping regulations.

If the product has been gassed or oiled, it needs to be taken to an authorized service center for repair which may be covered under warranty.

It sounds like you are at the service shop now, and they should be getting the unit fixed up. I apologize for the delay and understand your frustrations.

Great Power Washer But Cheap Hose
Great power washer and motor, but the high-pressure hose kinked up and broke in less than 1 hr for one use. I was very careful and kept the hose away form the hot muffler and engine, but it kinked up in 2-3 locations and sprung a leak.

Great overall machine, but you will need to upgrade and get a replacement hose for this unit.

Cons: Durability
Kevin Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert

Kevin,
Unfortunately, a kink in a high pressure hose is just as harmful as a burn from a hot muffler- that 2800 PSI needs to go somewhere, and it will blow out behind a kink in seconds.

It's a good idea to lay a new hose out straight in the sun for a bit before you use it, so it will relax and not be as inclined to coil and kink. There is also a knack to moving with a pressure hose- you have to keep one eye looking ahead and one eye looking behind, so to speak.

If you make a habit of moving the hose, then working; moving the hose, then working- instead of dragging the hose behind you as you work, you will find your hose will last longer.

Great Machine For My Use.
I ordered this online Friday after reading the reviews. I was very surprised to find this washer delivered to my house on Saturday. I know I live in Texas, and not far, but the turn around on my order was crazy fast. After unpacking and a 20 minute assembly I was using this washer.

I ran two tanks of gas through this machine and cleaned four wheedlers, tractor and driveway I was very happy with the performance. This washer is just what I need for my uses. Thanks again Pressure Washers... more

Performed As Advertised
This is my 3rd pressure washer. My original electric one never worked well. My second was an Excel 2600 PSI with a 5HP Honda motor that worked pretty well until the "strap-pump" failed. After dissecting the pump, I realized what a terrible design that was and looked for a cost effective replacement with an axial pump. So far the Generac has performed well.

The vertical posture of the unit takes up much less space in the garage and the front "step" makes a great place... more

Great Machine Quality & Performance
Well pleased with this power washer. Used to have an electric one, thought that was enough for a home owner. But this machine runs rings around those.

Look out dirt, this machine is com'in to get you. Used it twice since purchase- man, it's a worker. No complaints, does what is made for.

Would highly recommend. Read instructions carefully, wear eye protection and away you go.

SUPER machine.

I used to have a 1300 small electric power washer which I was happy with until it died. Purchased this and have no regrets.

Starts on first pull, is powerful and has a neat storage system for the hose, and spray heads. Makes the old electric seem like a toy.

Great service and price from PED.

Pleased With Purchase
Shipping: The unit arrived packed in a heavy-duty cardboard crate. It was harder to uncrate it than it was to snap the handle in place - the only assembly required.

Prep: It came with a quart of oil to fill the crankcase. The oil was a bit tricky since it takes less than a quart. Also, there are two “dipsticks,” one on either side of the crankcase, but only one was reasonably accessible for adding oil. However, you can check the oil level using either side. The machine also came with... more

I recently purchased a Generac 2800 PSI pressure washer from Pressure Washers Direct. I did some extensive research on various products available, but their posted reviews kept pulling me in the direction of the Generac products.

Except for the lack of information on what to do with the siphon tube after spraying the chemical it is a good purchase. I called and got a quick answer from a tech, but it should be included in the instructions.

This is a quality machine as are the other Generac products I own. It is nice to know that you can buy quality products made in America at reasonable price! I would definitely make the same decision again.

Did a whole bunch of research and found the Generac 2800 PSI to be the best reviewed for what I was looking for. Arrived yesterday, not much in the way of assembly required, snap on the handle, put the oil in (included), add gas & hook up the hose. Started on the first pull. That never happens. The thing is compact... and still a beast... cleaning better with the 15 degree tip than the old one (to be fair was only 2200 PSI) did with the 0 degree tip.

Wonderful Product!
This pressure washer is so easy to use and does a fantastic job. We have a composite deck virtually in a wooded area and there's constantly debris falling on it and staining large areas.

On our first use, we didn't use any chemical or anything, just the water pressure and it blew the loose debris off the deck and cleaned the stains without any kind of scrubbing. This unit was well worth purchasing!

2) Starts on the first or second pull

Mark,
Before starting the engine, you may want to pull the trigger and let the water run for a minute or two. This will release any pressure inside the pump and should make it easier to start.

The competition for your pressure washer business is fierce, and every dollar counts- that's probably why you mentioned the lowest price as a positive thing. Adding pneumatic wheels to the unit would be a nice feature, but would also increase the price, as would using a pump with adjustable pressure.

Pressure washer arrived as stated. The filler cap was damaged beyond repair and it had a very small dent in the gas tank. After filling fuel and oil I could not get the unit to start.Checked out all systems and found the spark plug setting was wrong.

Does What It Needs To Do
Purchased this Pressure Washer back on July 17th, 2014. And only recently assembled in two weeks later. Upon assembly which was quite easy to do. The only issues were the flimsiness of the handle, which did not feel at all sturdy, the placement of the soap dispenser hose, which needs to be mounted with wire ties and more importantly the pressure washer hose placement, which is to close to the motor, which could eventually melt the hose. So I need to make some adjustments there.

Generac 2800 Psi Powered Washer
Very good unit, much more powerful than my old 2000 psi electric unit it replaces. The "blast" tip is very powerful , so be careful. I have it for 4 wks so I don't know of its longevity. I give 4 value rating because you could buy other brands at the same price . Costco has a 3000 psi unit with HONDA engine for $299, I could have bought that unit but I do not have enough info on its reviews. Strongly recommend this unit for home use. Easy to assemble.

Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!
The instructions of its use? "Do not use any longer than a 50 foot hose from faucet." What? Just how useful is that? What a dumb limitation. Better not use it outside your garage!
Douglas Does Not Recommend This Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Douglas,
Most consumer-grade pressure washers depend on the back-pressure of city water to keep a steady supply of water flowing to the pump; this ensures peak performance. Generac recommends "Water supply must be adequate to handle greater than 3.8 gallons per minute and no less than 30 psi."

Their testing has shown that this unit's 2800 PSI, 2.5 gallons per minute performance is not usually met with supply hoses longer than 50 feet. If you have to work farther than 50 feet away from a spigot you may want to consider adding a 1/4" Extension Hose with M22 connectors (please be sure to make sure the genders of your connectors will match up properly). You can double the length of your high pressure hose without an appreciable drop in pressure out the end of your spray gun, so that would add another 25 feet to your cleaning range.

Another way to extend your reach is with Generac's 2nd Story Nozzle Kit. This will allow you to reach further with both soap and plain water spray.

Douglas,
As PED has alluded, longer hoses limit the water pressure output provided to the unit. To ensure that you are able to use your power washer efficiently for your desired applications, we would recommend ensuring that your unit is always provided the 3.8 gallons per minute and 30 psi (minimum) that it requires for optimal use. If you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns, please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Shipment was fast and it arrived much sooner than I expected. Setup was easy and quick. The washer started on the very first pull. I used it to clean the siding on my storage shed and outside steps to the basement. Cleaning the siding was easy and fast. Cleaning the basement steps of mold and mildew was much more difficult and required a lot of patience. I like everything about this power washer except the high pressure hose. It is not very flexible and is impossible to coil.

Problems After A Few Uses.
Unfortunately, my experience with this machine is not as positive as I've read in other reviews prior to purchase. After 1 use the pump stopped pulling soap out of the reservoir. The design of the reservoir is not the best because the plastic feed line end floats in the soap mixture, so I thought it was just a matter of holding the tip into the liquid.

That worked briefly but then even that did not resolve the problem. I used it a second time without the soap and the high pressure just... more

As Advertised
Could not have received it any quicker. Ordered it Friday evening, and then received it Tuesday afternoon. Machine works as expected. Only problem, it came with a broken gas cap. the way it was packed i don't know how that would happen.

Called Generac, they sent a new one in short time. I did find a pinch point with the trigger,took a little skin off the little finger. I need to find a way to keep the soap hose in bottom of the soap tank. Other than that, it works fine.

Generac Pressure Washer
Well I purchased the 2800# washer and it exceeds everything you could ask for. My first thing was the box was rather small that it shipped in. I thought, here we go lots of bolts and nuts to assemble, but to my surprise, not one bolt to put in. Snap handle on connect hoses which was so simple and then put the oil provided in and hook water hose to pump and one pull started it right up.

Great machine. Plenty power and would recommend to anyone. Great washer for the money. Thanks Pressure... more

Recived What I Expected
The Pressure Washer is what I expected it be. When I received the Washer it was a few days before I unpacked it. While taking it out of the box I discovered that the Gas Cap was damaged.

I sent PWD an e-mail on a Saturday explaining what the damage was. On Monday morning I received a reply stating that a replacement Cap was already shipped. It arrived by Thursday and was an exact match.

I have only used the Washer about an hour, but am happy with my purchase so far. As far as the... more

Great Washer
I ordered the washer and it came in just a few days.

I took it out of the box and had it put together in a very short amount of time. Gassed it up and 1 pull had it running. It works like a champ.. you can't go wrong ordering the Generac.

The 2800 PSI is more than enough for all house, car, and sidwalks jobs. I could not have made a better choice.

Works Well, Arrived Damaged
This unit worked well, but the gas cap came cracked in half- hopefully they can mail a new one but sort of a pain.

This seems well put together (time will tell) and has many nice design features like the on board detergent reservoir. It is also compact so it hardly takes up any space in the garage.

However, if you are buying a pressure washer to clean your gutters forget it - it does not remove leaves, it just fills your leaf filled gutter with water. The telescoping extension pole... more

Works Great
This pressure washer fired right up and was easy to use. I power washed the concrete sidewalk one day, and a week later power washed the entire house with no issues. So far it seems to be a great pressure washer for around the home.
The upright feature also takes less space in the garage to store.

Needed a reliable pressure washer for my home. I used this product and cut the time needed for applying and washing my home in half.

The amount of pressure also enabled me to do the majority of washing and rinsing from the ground.
Added to my efficiency and safety.

Turbo Nozzle For Cleaning Large Areas
To clean large driveways, don't waste your time with the clean tip, get a quality turbo nozzle instead. Get rid of the black tip, it will damage any surface you use it on before you notice it.

The turbo nozzle applies the same pressure as the black tip without causing any damage and it will cover a much larger area. Get the in-line screen filter for it, it will extend the life of the $30-$50 nozzle. Well worth the investment. Look in places that sell car wash products, 1/4 inch female... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions, Oil Filling Ports Are Kind Of Awkward Horizontal
Eduardo Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Eduardo,
I'd like to respectfully disagree- for most pressure washers, the black tip is the 65° low-pressure fan spray and also allows for soap to siphoned into the water flow. We don't recommend discarding it.

If you're worried about damage to delicate surfaces, it's the red tip that is usually the 0°, pinpoint spray tip that you need to be extra-careful with. Both the 0° and any turbo nozzle are very powerful- they should be used only on durable surfaces like concrete and paving, and you should always test them in an inconspicuous area first.

We also carry the Nozzle Filters separately, and sell them paired with turbo nozzles.

Please be sure to match the nozzle size to your pressure washer- we include a handy chart on each nozzle page.

After thoroughly reading the manual and filling it with oil and fresh gas,It started up on the second pull and worked great cleaning my patio. Afterwards, I brought it into the house and it smelled so heavily of gasoline that I had to put it into another room away from me. When I tried to start it 4 days later, after checking the oil and refilling with gas, it wouldn't start at all. I opened the oil valve again to double check the oil level and when I did, oil started pouring out and it... more

Gas Powered Pressure Washer
This is the first gas powered pressure washer we have owned (or used) and it worked very well. This model is light weight but powerful.

We cleaned a 5 foot high, 40 foot long brick wall in about 2 hours. Previously, we had tried to clean it with our electric power washer and had not been able to clean more than 2 feet in 2 hours.

The results are amazing when you use the right tool. We followed the directions explicitly and the power washer performed wonderfully.

Worked Well For Me
Product was shipped very quickly and received in 3 days - as described and worked very well.

A question I had was when filling out the warranty: where was the model number? I could not identify and no help from the Generac supplier. Also the pump is rated 1600 psi at 2.2gpm when the advertisement states 1800psi at 2.5gpm. Pressure Washers Direct does offer an upgrade to the larger volume pump for a price.

I was told by Pressure Washers Direct that Generac rates their pressure washers at... more

Roger Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Roger,
I checked the Owner's Manual PDF that we attached to this webpage under the Specs tab. On page 4, item T shows where the ID label should be. It says it's on the engine blower housing; from the illustration it looks to be on the right side of the recoil starter as you stand behind the unit, near the air filter.

Manufacturers supply us with the ratings on their pressure washers. This 6596 unit is rated to produce a maximum of 2800 PSI and 2.5 gallons per minute. There is no misrepresentation- these are numbers that Generac has obtained on their test bench. Since folks believe that "bigger is better" manufacturers look for ways to present the largest numbers they possibly can.

We sell a Generac 6598 that is 3100 PSI, but has virtually the same GPM at 2.7... the bigger engine can push the water a little harder.
You don't get to a substantially larger pump until you get to the Generac 6565 with 4200 PSI and 4 gallons per minute- and a bigger price tag to match.

The Generac 15" Surface Cleaner will work fine with the unit you have now- you won't need to change out your pump to use it.

Please be sure to follow the instructions in your Owner's Manual for winter storage and keep your pressure washer from freezing. A pump-saver product like Generac's Pump Defender will drive any residual water out of your seals and keep them lubricated.

Product Expert
Frank,
Extension lances are made for pressure washers. In many instances though it is better to just get a completely new lance and gun. It is also going to depend on what it is you are trying to do. Please give us a call and we can assist, but it would be easier if we knew what it is you are trying to reach or do so we can assist in getting you the right product. Adding attachment on attachment will often lead to decreased pressure, so there are typically better ways to achieve what ever it is you are trying to achieve. 800-710-7499

Joel,
I apologize for the issues you are having with the unit. I have not heard of this complaint before. However, please insure while trying to start a warm engine, the choke needs to be in the open position.

If you have tried that, I would recommend reaching out to the folks at Generac. The unit is covered by a 2 year warranty and they can help get you set up with a local service center. Give them a call at 888-436-3722.

Also, you can give us a call if you are unsatisfied with Generac's resolution. We can be reached at 800-710-7499.

Joel,
We are sorry to learn of the issues that you are currently experiencing with your residential grade pressure washer. Per the Troubleshooting section of your unit’s owner’s manual, if the unit is unable to start, or starts and runs rough, these issues may be brought on by a few key causes. To start, the unit may need the air filter to be replaced. Moreover, if the unit is out of fuel, filled with stale fuel, or if there is water in the fuel, we would recommend first checking the fuel to ensure that it is adequate for use, and then draining and refilling the unit with fresh fuel if necessary. Lastly, the spark plug wire may not be appropriately connected. We would recommend ensuring that this connection is properly made prior to your next attempted start-up. If your unit’s issues persist after performing these troubleshooting tasks, we would recommend contacting a local independent authorized service provider in your local area for diagnostic work. To locate an independent authorized service provider closest to you, please use your postal code for searching purposes via the following link: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator?cid=frm-105-ab . We hope you find this information to be helpful. If you would like to discuss these issues in further detail, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

High Ratings For My General 6569
First let me say that I love my new General 6569. It does everything just as it was advertised: starts easy, runs a long time on a tank of gas, and has more than enough power and pressure for jobs around my house. I give it my highest recommendation. Let me also offer a word of appreciation to pressure washers direct.

My machine came out of the box with a gas cap that was in a dozen pieces. I suppose it was crushed somehow in shipping, but I'm not sure. However, I called the service... more

Pun intended. I've enjoyed the Generac Power Washer in too many ways. Can't seem to find anything around the house (and other people's houses) that can't stand a power wash cleaning! Let me see: siding, pavement, landscape timbers, lawn chairs, bicycles, and mailbox! Thanks!

Great Service From These Guys, Pressure Washer As Good As Advert
Called and talked to sales and they directed to this pressure washer based on my needs. Driveway, house, outdoor furniture, typical clean up for spring and once during late summer. Ordered the pressure washer early one day, received it the next afternoon. Easy set up and ready to go. Have used about twenty hours, 6 hours straight for three days and it has performed as expected. Good size for home clean up.

This works great on the house, deck, sidewalk, and my truck! I have used it every day since it arrived! And Pressure Washers Direct is great to deal with! You get what's promised when it's promised! I will buy from them again!

I called PED and received a new fuel cap within two days. I will always keep Power Equipment Direct in mind before my next purchase. The service is friendly and prompt.

Generac Model #6596 Review
So far so good. It came with a broken gas cap which PWD replaced immediately. Starts consistently on the third pull. Best price I could find for a top rated medium duty unit.

My only complaints are the plastic wheels appear a bit flimsy and it would be nice if it came with a 15 degree (yellow) nozzle and a longer hose. Am going to pay extra for non-alcoholic gas hoping it will pay off in lower maintenance over time.

Very Compact And Powerful
I purchase my Generac 2800 PSI Pressure Washer Saturday and took it for test run Sunday. I was so amazed at how compact and powerful this machine was. First of all it only took about 15 minutes to set it up from right out of the box.

It was just as simple as attaching the handle, and adding oil and fuel..............no tools required. It started up with just one pull. I was waiting on the loud noise that some have stated, but it sounded like any powerful pressure washer.

Received my pressure washer in 5 days. Very easy to take out of box and assemble. Started on first pull. I cleaned my sidewalk and driveway and this machine has plenty of power and did an excellent job. I also cleaned a white fence in my back yard and it looks new again. Does not take up much space to store in my garage but has lots of power for a small machine.
I am very pleased.

Pressure Washing Stonework
The Generac pressure was recommended to me by a neighbor. The unit came well packaged. Instructions were very clear and I had the unit up and running in no time at all. We get a lot of mildew and mold in Florida, so I used this pressure washer to remove buildup on my landscape curbing. The green cleaning nozzle was used and no detergent was required. Job was finished in a couple of hours and the stone work looks like new. Nice product!!!

It is a good power washer for the money. Works great. But seems cheaply made. Not sure if I like that it's mostly all plastic. But works like it should and is really lightweight.

Easily moved and loaded by myself. I will get a new hose for it eventually and maybe a new wand.

Amazingly I ordered my Generac 2800 PSI Pressure Washer on July 7th and it was delivered to my home on July 10th. It was easy to assemble and I’m not the most mechanically inclined person in the world. I used this numerous times on my cement patio, siding and patio furniture and it works great. It is easy to use and the four spray nozzles options are very handy. I would definitely recommend this pressure washer.

Good Product Poor Service.
The gas cap was damaged on my motor. Called the service number and was politely told a new cap would be sent. Called a second time and was politely told a cap would be overnighted to me. Called a third time and was politely told they were out of stock. Been waiting since Jule 3rd. Still no new cap. But I could purchase one from a dealer. How are they out of stock if the dealers have them? Think I am getting the runaround.

Tim,
We have no records of you calling here. Did you speak with Generac directly? I have these under my desk and I will get one sent out today. I tried to reach out to you on the phone number we have on file and it is busy.

The 2nd number has been disconnected. Rest assured I am putting the new cap in the mail today and we will email you tracking this afternoon. We are in Illinois as well so you will have it in 1-2 days.

Good Pressure Washer
Unit was easy to assemble except for instructions concerning on-board detergent bottle. In my opinion access to the bottle should be from the rear. With the current design the rubber vacuum line must be routed around hot engine parts to the front of the pressure washer which is where access to the detergent bottle is located. Also, the bottle should be clear. With its current color there is no way to determine how much detergent is left.

This washer generates enough pressure to remove mildew... more

Great First Impression!
I ordered this machine and received it the very next day. No damage, quick assembly. Started on second pull. Used it for half day & thought I would take a break from the heat of the day when it ran out of gas.

That took awhile! No vibration from the engine , pump or wand. Great cleaning results from the unit- - I think I will be pleased. Thanks!

Good By Hose Burns
I used my dads and like it but burnt the pressure hose. I bought one and my wife did the same thing in 30 minutes of use. Pressure outlet is located in a bad place very easy to burn the hose. Also I dropped the spray nozzle and it broke. I have an extra eighty dollars in my washer with three hours of use. Differently not commercial quality. I would buy higher quality if I could do over.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Durability, Low Quality, Unreliable

Christina,
I apologize for the issues you have had on the unit. You are correct, on this model you do have to be careful not to burn the hose on the muffler of the engine. However, this is one of the best consumer grade units in the industry and we have had no trouble with the pump or engine on this unit. Feel free to give me a call directly for tips on using this unit. I can be reached at 800-710-7499. Thanks

We are sorry to learn of the damage incurred to your residential grade pressure washer's hose and spray nozzle during use.

Moreover, we are sorry that you are not satisfied with the location of the unit's pressure outlet. Your feedback will allow us to take alternative placement into consideration for future product models. Also, if you require replacement parts for your unit, please know that they can be obtained online via the following link: http://www.ordertree.com/generac/, or through an independent authorized service provider in your local area.

Great Black Mildew Cleaner-it's Alnost Fun!
I've put my new Generac 2800 PSI washer through its paces cleaning up my concrete driveway, stone block retaining wall, house gutter, and boat dock so far. It cleans well and much more efficiently than a previous electric model. Initial start takes 6-8 pulls and requires part choke afterward to run smoothly.

So Far So Good
Showed up without the dented tank a lot of folks seem to get. So kudos to FedEx. And, having some common sense, I have not allowed the hose to kink or to burn up on the motor so have avoided that which plagues the more inept. Also, unlike others, figured out pretty quickly that, being a gas motor, it just might need some of that oil they thoughtfully included and that it probably goes in the hole with an oil stick in it. After that logical leap started it up easily.

I bought a pressure washer with many tasks in mind to use it on. I researched washers for about a year preparing for the projects I had on my list for this summer.

I settled on the Genrac 2800 psi washer. I preferred that due to the multitude of positive reviews as well as the good experiences I've had with Generac products.

After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried. I guess the issues with damage have been corrected. There was no damage when I opened the box. It was in perfect condition.

Thank you for providing us with your review. If you are having issues using your unit to apply detergent, we would first recommend ensuring that you are appropriately preparing the unit for such use, as detailed in your unit's owner's manual. Moreover, it is important to note that detergent can only be applied when using the black detergent nozzle; alternative nozzles will not be able to apply detergent. If you are able to verify that you have followed the setup steps appropriately, and that the black nozzle is appropriately attached, we would then recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area for any diagnostic or servicing work that may be required. Please note that these trained professionals are able to provide any applicable warranty coverage to your unit.

Good Product
The washer is good with two minor flaws: the gas line switch broke the first time I used it. Fortunately it is in the on position. Also, the unit is extremely difficult to pull start. When the cord is pulled, the whole unit is pulled. I have hurt myself a few times so far.
The power output is good and the four nozzles are great. All in all, I am happy with the washer.

Christopher,
Thank you for providing us with your review of the 2800 PSI residential grade pressure washer. While we are happy to learn of your overall satisfaction with our product, we are sorry to learn of the issues that you have experienced with the specified switch and startup procedures.

To have the switch's issues remedied appropriately, we would recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area. Please know that these trained professionals can provide any applicable warranty coverage to your unit. To locate the independent authorized service provider closest to you, please use your postal code for searching purposes via the following link: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator?cid=frm-105-ab.

As for the issues that you are experiencing with the recoil mechanism on your unit, we would recommend verifying that you are following the startup procedures detailed in your unit's owner's manual appropriately; doing so should allow your unit to startup relatively easily. Per your unit's documentation, we recommend first connecting a sufficient water supply, moving the fuel valve to ON, moving the choke lever to CLOSE, and turning the engine switch to ON. Then relieve any spray gun pressure and place your foot on the foot-pad to secure the unit from movement when pulling the recoil. Next, firmly grasp the recoil handle and pull slowly until resistance is felt. Then pull rapidly to start the engine. After the unit has started, return the recoil handle slowly; do not let the recoil snap back against the recoil housing. If the engine has started, slowly move the choke lever to the OPEN position as the engine warms. If the engine falters, however, move the choke lever to CLOSE and slowly back to the OPEN position. If you are still having issues with the recoil after performing these tasks, we would then recommend contacting one of the aforementioned independent authorized service providers in your local area to have them diagnose any additional issues that may apply to your personal unit. Moreover, if you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722); we have representatives available 24/7.

I have used my new Generac on things that didn't really need a power washer, but enjoyed the ease of having easy portability, easy start, and all accessories handy.

Glad I made a wise decision for once.

Meets Expectations
Great product. We have put this pressure washer to it's test multiple times. Good construction. Easy to manuver.
We love the 2800 PSI pressure. My wife likes the easy start.

Terrific Machine.
This is the perfect compact 2800 psi machine. Generac designs and builds great machines, my generator has saved my butt more than once.... This power washer works as advertised, with plenty of power for a machine in the class.

I do have to seek a replacement high pressure hose, as mine sprung a pin hole leak for unknown reason. ( a pinhole at 2800 psi is like a dam burst)

Have Not Been Disappointed!!
I did quite a bit of research prior to my purchase and I have to say..... have not been disappointed!!! My purchase arrived earlier than anticipated, and after my own mental "once over," found no pre-existing damage on or inside the well packaged cardboard box or washer.

Upon delivery, I followed the instructions, filled with oil, fuel and even zip tied the connecting end of my washer line to the frame away from the exhaust manifold to prevent scorching while in use! I understand... more

Fantastic Machine
So, I bought this unit on sale for $269 including shipping. It arrived in 3 days, put in oil and attached hose and handle. Fired up 1st pull and have used it 4 times for a total of about 6 hrs. Machine has plenty power and can handle all household jobs. Cleans even the worst mildew on concrete with ease.

I would say you may only need more power if you had plenty of paint to strip, although this one will remove paint from concrete it just may not be as fast as say a 3400 psi machine. ... more

Decent So Far...however
The presser washer is great, not cheap or poor quality. It works great, but...after very thoroughly examining every moving part and reading every single word in the instructions, investigating on YouTube and asking my small engine repair neighbor exactly what I need to do to properly begin using my new PW I still ran into an issue that I hope is only temporary...the engine smokes just a little and smells like burning rubber.

It scares me to use it for too long or to walk too far away from... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, Features, Durable
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use
