Great Washer... Easy To Use
This machine is easy to use and does a fantastic job, I am a 70 year old female and wanted something that I could use to clean a concrete patio, driveway, wood decks, and gutters.

This is the first Pressure Washer that I have ever owned , and second time I have ever used one. Took it out of shipping box, read the manual, put the quick connections on, attached the turbo nozzle to wand, connected water hose and pressure hose, put in the gas and oil. It started immediately, only stops when I... more

The Goods & Not So Goods
The power washer unit itself is fantastic, love the design, how it moves and holds the gun. That part is a 10.

About 3 hours into the first use the hose blew a bb sized hole about 2 feet away from where it connects to the unit. Our day was done. I called Pressure Washers Direct customer service line and they were closed. It was Good Friday, so I understood. I emailed them with the issue as a follow up.

We went to Home Depot the following day to get a replacement hose which added another... more

Rick,
I'm sorry you had problems with your hose- it took me a while to find your order since you used a different email address on your review.

I would suggest calling Generac again to ask about the replacement shipment. They may have placed a hold on the hose to wait for the pictures of the nozzle, and then not gotten back to activate the shipment request.

Trigger handle on the wand sometimes stays stuck on.... twice already it jets off as soon as I start the motor.
I have had to shut off the motor and jiggle the handle. We all know that shouldn't have to be necessary.

Zero Issues
I was a little disappointed with the cheap feel of the handle at first impressions. It's just a plastic handle as opposed to a solid piece of steel with plastic piece snapped over it but looking at the available pictures from this site again shows that I should have realized that. Also there is some play once the the 2-piece handle is assembled which, of course, has ZERO affect with the operation of the machine but it was just another thing that doesn't give the user that "this is a solid... more

Michael,
Using steel in the handle would feel sturdier; but it would also be heavier- and that can really take it's toll if you're working on a large project like cleaning a deck or house.

Using modern materials is easier on your arms, and your budget.

Have only used PW a few times so far but will use it more throughout the year.

Two major complaints.
One, the recoil cord used to start engine is very difficult to use. As a female user, I am unable to start it myself. Cord needs to be shorter to activate engine and start with less effort.

Two, the cord connecting the power wand to the unit leaves permanent black marks on any surface it contacts while using the washer. In future will place waterproof tarp under cord when using... more

Ann,
A good tip for starting direct-drive pressure washers like this one is kind of hidden on Page 13 of the Owner's Manual. It tells you to squeeze the spray gun trigger and let water run through the unit for a minute or two BEFORE you try to pull-start the engine.

This pushes all the air out of the pump (preventing "vapor lock") and allows the engine to turn over easier. You should do this every time before you yank on the pull starter. If the air is jammed in the pump it won't allow the engine to turn over because they are directly connected.

We appreciate your business, and I hope I was able to help.

Great Even Without A Muffler!
Five star on all aspects until... the muffler "fell f*^ing OFF" to paraphrase commedian Ron White's Sears tire experience! It was during the 3rd. hour of use that the weld between the exhaust flange & the header pipe "broke".

Examining the weld clearly showed a 360 degree bead all the way around... but it did not "penetrate into" the exhaust flange for a full &#8532; of the circumference. My direct call to Generac met with success as they shipped out... more

Stalling Out
I have only used it 2 times but having trouble with it stalling out in use. Can you give me any guidance on this problem?
Rob Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Rob,
As long as you're using fresh gasoline (gas that's been sitting around for a couple months sometimes doesn't burn very well) the only thing I can think of besides the Troubleshooting Guide on page 21 of your Owner's Manual is to loosen the gas cap a bit if it stalls. Sometimes a casting flaw or piece of packing material will block the gas cap vent, creating a vacuum as gas is used that starves the carb, causing it to stall.

If that does the trick you can call Generac at 888-436-3722 and ask them to send you a replacement gas cap since your unit is under warranty. Even if that doesn't do the trick, you can still ask them for additional troubleshooting advice. They can also provide the closest warranty repair locations to your zip code. (If there's more than one location, call around to see who has the shortest turn-around time!)

Please be sure to have the pressure washer's serial number handy when you call Generac. If you need a copy of your invoice to establish your warranty just click on My Account in the upper right corner of our website and follow the prompts to print one out.

So Disappointed!!
Just my second time using this pressure washer and the hose developed a hole. I'm not sure how this could happen I was simply cleaning my drive and approximately 20 minutes I looked back and saw watering spraying out of the back.

But times I've used this it's started up on the second pull, and seem to be doing a great job. That said, I'm so disappointed, I'll have to purchase a new hose unless this is under warranty?

Victor,
Most manufacturers will cover items like hoses for materials and workmanship for 30 days after delivery, which would take you to 4/18/16. However you may want to call the folks at Generac, toll free, at 888-436-3722 and explain that it was the second time the hose was used- they may choose to cover it under warranty.

Please have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call Generac, they will ask for it. If you need a copy of your invoice just click on My Account in the top right corner of our website, then follow the prompts to print one out.

As you use your pressure washer you will need to watch behind you as well as before you. Getting a kink in a hose at 3100 PSI will cause a leak very quickly, as well as letting it touch the hot muffler of the engine. Your hose will also last longer if you pick the hose up and move it instead of dragging it over rough surfaces like pavement or gravel.

Love It
Works great. Has lots of pressure.

The soap thing is a little confusing though - Home Depot has ZAP cleaner for about $8 and is blue but says for "downstream" of pump. I called Pressure Washers Direct and they said the soap goes "through" the pump but the axial pump connection for the soap is on the high pressure output orifice - so that's confusing.

I can't find local supplier of "through the pump" soap. I may call Generac to see what they say about... more
Sidney Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Sidney,
Most consumer grade, and many pro-grade pressure washers will run the detergent/water mix through the pump. You can tell if this applies to your machine if you have to use the black tip to open the siphon tube for detergent.

You need to use a detergent labeled 'pressure washer safe' with these machines because they don't contain any caustic chemicals (like bleach, ZAP, TSP, etc) that will damage the seals or components in your pump.They will also be thin enough that the siphon can pick them up, while maintaining the correct ratio of soap to water (about 1:10).

We sell a variety of pressure washer-safe soaps, and you can usually find them at local places that sell pressure washers, like Sears.

Please read the instructions for any pressure washer-safe soap you purchase- some need to be diluted before use, and some recommend watering your landscaping with plain water before use.

If you want to use a more caustic chemical, you may want to check out a foamer. These go on your spray wand, and allow you to introduce a chemical "downstream" or after the pump. They work well for the cleaners/chemicals that would otherwise damage your pump (and void your pressure washer warranty).

Purchased this power washer to clean an old wood garage and an old aluminum siding house for preparation to paint.

Just finished preparing the garage. Power washer did a great job of taking off the loose paint using the cleaning tip, followed by spraying on the cleaning solution using the soap tip, and taking it off with the sash tip.

Powerwasher is also handy for washing the cars.

Assembly was straightforward with no problems. Getting oil into the engine is a little awkward, but not... more

Disappointing
Received my power washer and was very happy with the ease of set up and manuverability. Followed the instructions on use to the T. Worked like a charm day one. Power washed the house, driveway and walkways.

Day two, immediately after day one, boy what a difference and not a good one. Power washed the deck. Power washer kept stalling out every time I squeezed the gun. Took it to an authorized repair center. They told me it was bad gas. Gas was not even two weeks old and was a brand name... more

Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Nick,
I understand your disappointment. Something you might want to try when it keeps stalling is loosening the gas cap a bit to see if it helps. Sometimes the breather vent on the cap is blocked, and as the gas is used a vacuum forms, starving the engine.

Old gasoline doesn't ignite well and does cause problems; bad gas is not covered by any Factory Warranty. Properly stored 2 week old premium gas should have been OK, especially since it worked on the first day. If your unit runs fine now, then maybe it was the gas. If you use fresh gas and still have the same problem you may want to give Generac a call, toll free, at 888-436-3722 to let them know what happened, and get the name of another repair place.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your unit handy when you call Generac, as well as the name and phone number of the repair shop that looked at it the first time, and the name of the person you spoke with. They will want to make sure you are getting the help you need.

This powerwasher was more powerful then I imagined. I wanted a really good cleaner for siding and masonry. This model is paint-stripping good.

I feel it's better than rated. The shipping was excellent. There was no problems with assembly. I'm really really happy with my initial experience. This is the one for the dollar vs power ratio!

The new Generac is powerful enough to handle most any job and is 10x faster when trying to clean moss off brick patios, etc.

This is is the perfect upgrade to my small electric pressure washer which worked 'okay' but required a full weekend to do a simple job.

On Time Arrival!!
Ordered my washer in January 2016. it arrived on time but, because of cold weather I put it in the garage. I have since opened and inspected it and found that the orange plastic handle was broken, there was no sign of damage to the box, and it was in a cardboard sleeve inside the box.

When it warms up enough to play with water I'll fire it up, hopefully the wand will work with no problems. Other than that I'm satisfied with the washer!!

Steven,
We ask all of our customers to inspect their shipment immediately since the window to report shipping damage is very short- usually 10 days or less. Shipping damage is not usually covered by Factory Warranty.

However, Generac is really good about taking care of their customers, so you may want to contact their After Sale Support or give them a call, toll free, at 888-436-3722 for a replacement handle.

Please be sure to include the serial number of your pressure washer if you email Generac, or have it handy if you decide to call them. If they request a copy of your invoice just click on My Account in the upper right corner of our website and follow the prompts to access a copy.

No assembly as such... just snap the handle on. This is my only criticism so far. The handle is a bit flimsy. Made of plastic and the locking mechanism is just a spring button that snaps into a hole. It has come loose twice as I pulled on it to get it into my tool shed.

It works very well and has lots of pressure. I added the 15"... more

Update To My 01/05/2016 Review
I wrote a 'moderately' disgruntled review on 01/05/2016 mostly because the spray nozzles were missing in the shipping box. After speaking with Mike Aletich in Customer Service he sent me the spray nozzles and I received them about 3 days later.

I have since used the pressure washer to clean my dock and a seawall that was very, very dirty with what I'm sure was several years of build up (I purchased the home a few months earlier).

The pressure washer did an 'excellent' job removing the... more

Hard Starting
Most difficult starting machine on the planet. My model does not have a foot rest, so when one attempts to start it the unit almost tips over and is very unstable. I can't speak of the performance as I haven't started it yet after trying for 2 hours.

Decided to take a rest and let the world know about this unit. It should come with an electric start or a Generac representative on standby to start it.

Jadee,
Page 9 of the Owner's Manual shows "7. Turn ON the water, squeeze the trigger to purge the pump
system of air (Figure 13)." Page 13 says "NEVER pull starter cord without first relieving spray gun pressure."

Since the engine is connected directly to the pump, you will find letting water run through the system to purge the air out of the pump will make starting the unit much easier. Following the instructions in your Owner's Manual about setting the choke may also help.

We also suggest using fresh gasoline. Many times starting problems can be traced to gas that's been sitting around for months and the volatile components have evaporated.

If all of these don't help get the unit started, please use the Generac Service Locator to find Authorized Generac Factory Service locations in your area.

This pressure washer is of great quality. You will not be disappointed with this machine. Power, performance, dependable, easy to use, quality parts, it's all there.

Whether you are pressure washing 300 feet of fence, a driveway of pavers, a 100 sq ft patio this machine does it with a breeze. A real beast.

Amazingly the pressure washer arrived within two days of ordering. There was no problem with the gas cap as others reported. Easy assembly and all parts were in order.

Slight problem with hose as it developed a pin hole leak within the first 30 minutes of operation. Called the company and a new hose was sent the next week.

I am very satisfied with this product.

Needless to say the new 3100 has more features and much more cleaning power. Cleaning my paver driveway and walkways was much fast and a lot easier on the back. That's what I was looking for and it satisfied my requirements.

Attaching and detaching the nozzles is a snap. I am thus far very happy with the price and performance.

I purchased this model (6598) instead of the Generac One Wash since this design has been around longer and has a good track record. I have been very happy. Here are a few highlights from my experience thus far:

- Assembles out of the box in 10-15 minutes... very simple.
- Some plastic used in cosmetic areas, but high quality construction where it matters.
- Unit is balanced making it easy to tote around the house.
- Has a generous amount power and water output. very happy!!

Hard To Start & Running Rough
Fast delivery & easy set-up. The unit was hard to start and ran very rough. Can't be returned since it has had fuel in it. Authorized warranty repair shop should be able to get to it in a couple of weeks. And now the unit is on sale.

Pat,
I am sorry to hear your pressure washer isn't running well; I understand how disappointing that can be.

I see from your file that there are several Generac Authorized repair locations in your area- I hope you called around to find the one with the shortest turn-around time? During the summer months I realize they get busy.

It is Federal Law that prevents shipping an engine that has had gas in it, since it's a fire/explosion hazard. That's why we only sell products with national service networks.

For folks reading this review, there are a couple tips for new engines. First is to use fresh gas- the stuff you've had sitting around for the lawn mower may have lost a lot of its volatile compounds and won't burn well.

Second is to hook up the water to the unit, then pull the spray gun trigger and let the water run for a minute without starting the engine. This drives out all the air from the pump, preventing vapor lock. Since the pump and engine are connected directly, vapor lock can make it very difficult to get the engine to turn over.

We post the best prices we can every day. Occasionally manufacturers will run specials where they provide bonus items or a special price for sales that happen in a specific time period. Unfortunately they won't provide credits for sales that happen outside their time period. We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Amazing Machine!
My wife and I have a small weekend home on a lake, but we have a huge amount of deck- probably nearly the square footage of the house. And since we also have a monster pine tree that covers a good deal of it, we have a constant problem with pollen and dirt.

For the past couple of years, I have relied on my 1700 psi electric power washer, and it's done a creditable job. But it also takes me the better part of two days to wash the deck. At most I can clean about a 1 1/2 inch swath, and I have... more

First day in, I opened my package/box for the Generac 3100 PSI unit Moel 0065980, and one of the tips (the Green One) was missing. Nothing was previously opened that I could see. The unit requires little assembly, and although it is hard to carry down stairs because of the plastic foot kit, it is pretty portable. Tires are hard plastic and pretty lousy.

Kip,
I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your pressure washer. I am also very sorry that, although it's explained in our Return Policy link at the bottom of every page, we didn't explain that is it against Federal Law to re-ship a gas engine that has had fuel in it in our email to you, since it's an explosion/fire hazard. Local stores usually have returned items that have been fueled repaired locally and then re-sell them as "reconditioned" or "refurbished" (or offer them to a reseller in the area).

Being able to swap out an item in person is an advantage that local stores have over Internet stores; we try to balance that with good service, good prices, no sales tax, and by only carrying items with national service networks to support them.

We can certainly help with the replacement of the missing green tip if the folks at Generac haven't been able to ship one to you. If the Authorized Generac Service location isn't providing you with good service, please let us know their phone number and the name of the person you've contacted- we will be happy to ask Generac to contact them directly.

Great Power Washer, Cheap Hose
I bought the Generac 6598 in April and have used it for about 20 hours. Performance is great, worlds above my previous Karcher electric model.

But today the pressure hose blew out, and no, it was nowhere near the muffler. Generac should supply a more durable hose, even if it is 25' long instead of the 30' provided with this model.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Fast
Cons: Durability
William Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
William,
Most pressure washer companies will cover the hose and spray gun under their Factory Warranty for at least 30 days after the unit was delivered. You are just outside that time frame, but you may want to give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381 to see if they will send you a replacement.

Hot mufflers have killed many a hose- I'm glad this wasn't the case for you. The other situation to beware with a high pressure hose is a kink, usually sneaking up behind you when you're not looking. 3100 PSI with no place to go will blow any hose (the higher the burst rating, the longer it takes- but a kink will still kill it).

A reasonably priced, better quality replacement would be this Apache 50 ft. M22 hose. It's 5/16" instead of 1/4", but it shouldn't cause a drop in pressure with 3100 PSI.

You could also go up to 3/8" hose which would give you more choices. They are more expensive, and you would need to get a set of M22 to Quick Connect Adaptors.

We appreciate your business, and I apologize for any inconvenience. I hope I've been able to help!

Excellent Washer With Two Design Faults
The washer is powerful and well built. The first flaw is that the exhaust/muffler unit is at the top right side of the washer. After my first test use, I stopped the engine and laid the lance across the flat top of the housing. Problem was that this location does not afford enough clearance of the muffler and the high pressure hose was immediately burnt through. So I had to replace it and have it shipped ASAP before I could use the washer for real. A heat shield above that muffler would have... more

So Far, So Good Except Attaching The Water Hose
The unit has been used only one time. It performed about as expected, The compactness of the unit is good.

The only problem encounter thus far is the difficulty in attaching the water hose to the inlet. It is too close to the pressure hose connector. I would hope Generac engineers will give more space to make hose connection easier.

You might find that a garden hose quick connect set (at local hardware stores in plastic for about $5, brass for about $9) might make the water supply hose easier to deal with.

Received the Generac four days after placing the order. Assembly was easy and after adding gas and oil, the engine started on the second pull.

This thing has plenty of power. Immediately went to work cleaning vinyl siding. The only thing I have to add is a longer high pressure hose as the one provided is somewhat short.

Andy,
I can understand your frustration with the Federal Law that prohibits shipping engines that have had gasoline in them- but I hope you can see it's because they pose a fire/explosion hazard, not only to the truck driver but anyone or anything around it.

I checked your file, and I see that you called us after the Factory Warranty repair location told you the parts were on backorder with Generac. It took us several tries working with our rep at Generac, but 2 days ago we emailed you with the news that Generac was over-nighting the parts to your repair location.

I'm hoping that this will help get your pressure washer repaired promptly! You may want to make a follow-up call to your repair location to make sure they received the parts and know to move your unit into their repair queue.

We appreciate your business, and I'm glad we were able to help!

Good Product... Soap Feed Is The Only Thing That's A Bother
Great product... my only issue with it is that you have to detach the soap feed tube when you don't want soap flowing through the system... should be a T-Valve or something like that. I had to jury rig a twist tie to hold the line after I disconnect it.

I would buy another.

Dave,
The way it's supposed to work is that soap is only dispensed when the black spray tip is attached; the rest of the time the valve to the soap feed tube should be closed.

If you are getting soap flowing when you use other tips, you may want to give the folks at Generac a call, toll free, at (888) 436-3722 x5381 to see if your pressure washer needs warranty work.

Not Very Impressed
I received the pressure washer, assembled it, added the proper amount of oil, fueled it up with premium fuel, connected the hose and wand, connected the water supply and fired it up on the second pull. I was initially pleased, but 5 minutes later it died. I've not been able to run it longer than 5 minutes without it suddenly dying.

I called customer service and they gave me four warranty service companies to take it to. I certainly did not expect to have to take it in for warranty work with... more

Everything I Need In A Pw
I have had the Generac 3100 for almost two years now and have had no problems with it. I have a large multilevel deck and this PW takes the dirt right off. I just used it on a 140 foot fence (both sides) to get the dirt and mildew off before staining.

It ran almost continuously for at least 8 hours. My PW always starts on the 2nd pull. I did replace the hose with a better hose as the hose it comes with is fairly cheap.

I would also like to commend Pressure Washers Direct for... more

It Does The Job
I was looking for a pressure washer to fulfill some house chores, nothing super-sophisticated or super-powerful. However, for those "simple" things you need to get done at home (named cleaning the driveway, windows, ceiling, the filter-suck in your fishtanks, etc...really simple ah?!).

The cheap stuff (cheaper for me was prices between $100-$250) was "simply" not enough. Then, I came across this unit (3100-Generac) for which I did spent a little more money (not terrible)... more

Starts Every Time
I've used this 3 times already on different occasions and had no problems starting it.The only bad thing I have to say about it is where you store the spray handle at there's a plastic piece that if bumped will fall off but it snaps back into place- I feel it should have been a solid piece. But it does not affect how the machine works it just annoying picking it up when it pops off but right now its sits on my work bench.This is the only reason I gave it a low quality in the Cons area.

Don't Buy From Generac
We bought this in May 2015 and used it one time for about 2 hours to clean our patio. We then tried to use it again in July and couldn't pull the start cord. I took it to an authorized service shop and found out the engine is shot and after about 3 weeks, Generac said they will not fix it nor refund the money. So we are out $360.00.

That Nasty Green Stuff
I've always wanted a power washer to use around the house, but when my father in laws house developed an algae situation I knew it was time.

Now I use it for just about everything. The only thing I'm a bit disappointed about is the siphon hose will never stay on the bottom of the included detergent tanks. I had to have someone hold the tube in place during the wash phase of my project. Plus you never know when the tip is under the solution unless someone is manning the gun.

Whoops
Used it one time and blew a noting in the hose. I guess these things happen. Had to soak myself to finish the job because they wouldn't ship replacement part other than ground nor give me size of the ring itself. Luckily enough it was close to a hundred that day. I will be sizing and buying backups.

Jaime,
High pressure hoses will blow out if they become kinked or twisted while under pressure. Since they are high-pressure, they are repaired by a hydraulic hose company with special crimping tools and lots of insurance.

If you're pressure washing professionally it's always a good idea to have an extension/replacement hose handy, just in case.

Good Value For A Consumer Machine, But...
Item arrived on time but the fuel tank and cap were damaged in shipping, but not to the point that it would not work, so I let that go.

Machine is designed so that the pressure hose can come into contact with the hot muffler, which melted a hole in the hose when I was using it for the first time. Had to stop my project and drive into town to buy a replacement for $65.00 @ Home Depot. Not too happy about that.

This is not a high quality machine but so far a good value for the money.

Chris,
You may be beyond the short window to report shipping damage to the folks at FedEX to cover the cost of repair or parts since your order was delivered on 5/13/14.

You can use their FedEX Online Claims using the tracking number we emailed to you, and posted to your account.

Hot mufflers are always a hose hazard with gas-powered pressure washers. There is a knack to keeping an eye out behind you to manage your hoses while you're pressure washing; you also need to prevent any kinks from forming in the hose since they will burst after just a few seconds under pressure.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Top Of The Line
This pressure washer is exactly what I expected. Looks great, and get the job done. So far not disappointed at all.

If I had to say two weakness the sprayers are hard to get into the fitting. They don't click in like my old pressure washer. Also the hose is hard to work with its stiff. But I have not found one yet that is easy to rewind up.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions, Hose Stiff
Dennis Recommends This Generac Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Dennis,
You should find with use that the spray nozzles will get easier to attach- they can be a little stiff when they're brand new.

The average garden hose has to handle only around 3 to 8 GPM; your pressure washer is putting out a whole lot more- and the hose needs to be up to the task. Thicker walls on high pressure hose are one way to reinforce them, but that tends to make the hose less flexible.

One way to make pressure hose more flexible is to add steel wire braid to reinforce it, like this M22 Replacement Hose by Apache, but it is more expensive. The good news is that it will last longer.

If hose flexibility is important to you, you may want to consider upgrading to a pro-style high pressure hose in the future.

Got this unit, added oil and gas and it ran non stop for 7 hours except the time required to refuel. It ran wide open and never missed a beat.

This continues to show me what a quality product Generac builds up and down their product line. I use their generators in my work- everything from 25kw up to 225kw and they are a great company building quality products.

Thank you for providing us with your review. Please know that the unit's detergent tank is screwed into the product's body. If you would like to drain the detergent tank, we would recommend utilizing an automatic style siphon to remove any remaining detergent after use. Moreover, when used appropriately on a level surface, the unit should not be shaking significantly. If you believe that your unit is currently experiencing issues, we would recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area for any required diagnostic work.

Starts First Pull Every Time
Works very well but I still need to use a ladder to get the second floor. I was hoping that I could just run it from ground level but there is not enough power left once it gets beyond 6 feet. I may need to buy an extension. Suggestions?

Bobby,
If you are looking to keep off of ladders all together, you best option will likely be a telescoping wand. There are extensions you can but to add to your lance, but this does not always give you the pressure you are going to desire and you still may have problems hitting the highest level. A telescoping wand, while it takes some getting used to is your best option.

If you are still unsure about a telescoping wand, you could also look into this extension as well.

Bobby,
If you are concerned about being able to utilize detergent for second-story applications, we would recommend considering our 2nd Story Nozzle Kit, which includes a pink high pressure soap nozzle and blue high pressure rinse nozzle; both of these nozzles are suitable for cleaning upper floors of a standing home or building. If you have any other product-related inquiries, please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

I've only used the Generac 3100 4 or 5 times but so far so good. I had an old craftsman that died and this one is all around better designed, easy to start, and easy to navigate around my yard. I was very impressed with direct washers , they delivered on time and did what they promised.

3100 Psi Has A Lot Of Power.. Good Unit
Well, finally got around to use it and I would definitely recommend getting the 3100 psi, not a smaller unit. I am happy that I got the 3100 as It has power to spare and is easy to use, however just a few improvements would make it a much better unit.

It is a loud unit, so buy some earplugs! It does vibrate to the extreme ( after just one use the exhaust pipe came loose from the head). It could use a larger gas tank as it seems to run empty at the worse times. Also there is a small... more

Mike,
We are sorry to learn of the issues that you have experienced with your 3100 PSI residential grade pressure washer. If your unit is unable to start, or starts and runs rough, we would recommend performing the troubleshooting steps recommended for these symptoms in your unit's owner's manual. Per this detailed information, multiple causes can potentially cause the symptoms that your unit is currently experiencing. To start, the unit may have a dirty air filter; a dirty filter would need to be cleaned or replaced. Also, the unit's fuel supply may have water in it, or it could be stale and/or too low. Considering this, we would recommend checking the unit's fuel, and emptying and replacing the supply with fresh fuel if necessary. Lastly, your unit may not start, or may start and run rough, if the spark plug wire is not appropriately connected to the plug. We would recommend ensuring that this wiring is appropriately configured as well. Should you require assistance performing these tasks, or if you are able to perform these troubleshooting recommendations and issues persist, we would recommend contacting a local independent authorized service provider. 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. Moreover, if you have any other comments, questions, or concerns, or would like to discuss your experience with us in detail, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Displeased
My purchase was made on the 1st of May. The rip cord popped on the 17th. I had t he regular warranty plus the one purchased, which extends it until 2018. I was given an address to a repair shop only to find out that it wasn't covered and cost me almost $100 bucks. Not to mention that not all the parts came with it to begin with. I was considering purchasing another power washer. While the price is great......the warranty sucks.

Power Washer Hose
When I purchased my Generac 3100 psi power washer, it worked well and met my needs for the first 5 hours of use. During the sixth hour of use, the hose ruptured and my business went back to the garden hose and scrub brush. The machine itself is a beautiful working machine and accomplishes all that I need.

Paul,
I appreciate the feedback. However, sometimes the high pressure hose hits the muffler, and causes it to fail from the heat being produced from the engine. This is the most common reason the factory hose fails. I would recommend purchasing a 5/16" diameter hose for the unit. The 5/16" hose is a much stronger more durable hose than the hose that came stock with the unit. However, if it hits the muffler, any hose will melt and fail. All the consumer grade units come with the 1/4" PVC plastic hose. I have attached a link for you to view the replacement hose I recommend for that unit.

Very Good Buying Experience
Following some research and just a search for Pressure Washers I came across Pressure Washers Direct. The website was very easy to maneuver and very informative. Since there was no tax and no shipping, the price was very appealing.

After placing my order I was given an approximate delivery date, that night the delivery was updated to the next day instead of 2-3 days later. There was a slight problem with a broken cover, but this was handled just as expeditiously.

Great folks to deal with.

Only downfall is that the soap will only feed through the hose with the "soap" nozzle on. Lessens the soap cleaning quality in my opinion. You still need that old rag and elbow grease to get a clean vehicle. All in all, it's a... more

Erin,
To avoid having to use a rag, consider spraying down with soap, letting it soak, then switching to a more suitable nozzle for rinsing.

Don't use so much pressure that you damage the paint, but enough that you safely remove the "crud." This should help a bit.

Daniel,
I am so sorry you had a mess to clean up! After a unit is tested by the factory they will drain the oil from it, but a small amount of oil will remain. Usually this isn't a problem- unless the unit is tipped during the shipping process.

We insist that our shippers keep the boxes upright in transit, but sometimes that just doesn't happen.

I'm glad there was no damage, and you are pleased with your purchase.

Opened it up as soon as it arrived. Very easy assembly and start-up. Works like a charm, especially with the Simpson Turbo Nozzle.

Easy to move around and relatively quiet. I am very happy with the purchase and performance.

Routing of the detergent tube is a little awkward and the 2nd detergent bottle is not set up for inserting the pick-up tube. Would probably be better to have just one tank.

As it is, I use the 2nd tank for fresh water to rinse out the detergent tube.

The high pressure hose and water hose can get close to the hot muffler somewhat easy and you really have to make sure your hoses are placed out and in line with your work area.

My Projects
Purchased this unit to do the front porch and my deck in the rear of a house I just purchased. Found it fairly easy to get going and learned a few things about how powerful the pressure washer is.

If you are using this more as a novice you may learn as I did that it doesn't take much to dig in to the wood. Had to do a little wood sanding to take out some of the areas where I got under the wood trying to get the old paint stripped off.
Cons: High Pressure Hose Too Easy To Get Near The Hot Muffler

Great Machine - So Far....
Used washer for about 6 hours the 1st day 3 hours the 2nd day and 3 hours a week later. Works as advertised.

Great motor, great pressure, easy to push around, comfortable handle, good variety of tips, nice long high pressure hose, although it does curl up a lot due to it not being all that flexible. The only other complaint about the machine is that the detergent hose keeps vibrating out of the dispenser cover hole, so I have to shove it back in periodically to get detergent to dispense. ... more

A Few Drawbacks
Easy to put together, started on second pull. The only drawbacks are minor. The muffler cover started rusting a lot very quickly. To the point that it looked like it would not last all that long before it would be rusted through. I sanded it and sprayed it with outdoor grille paint. Problem solved. The chrome on the wand is doing the same, not a big deal since the metal is thick enough it shouldn't cause a problem. Works great and has plenty of power to get the job done. I'm pleased... more

I received the washer in major pieces and had no problems making the final assembly. I didn't realize at first that it had an ignition switch but when I did it started right away.

The washer performed flawlessly at first and has done so every time since (a half a dozen times). No problems with the high pressure hose or any other parts. I am well satisfied. I would recommended this washer to anyone.

Haven't used it allot yet but it has done a great job cleaning my patio blocks and other landscape retaining wall blocks. Plan to do my driveway and walks when I received the surface cleaning attachment that is on back order.

I did make the mistake of melting the hose on the hot muffler because I wasn't paying attention. The hose that comes with it is not very flexible. Replaced it with a 5/16" that was allot more flexible.

Machine arrived in good shape. Put together and used to power wash fence we were going to repaint. With green nozzle did a good job of removing flaking paint. Took two days to complete. Went out third day to power wash a deck and found that the pressure hose had split. Not what I expected from a first class power washer. Very disappointed. Upgraded to a good hose. Works fine..

I was looking for a pressure washer with a bit more pressure and GPM than the usual 2100-2800 PSI ones you can find just about everywhere. In fact, I owned a 2800 PSI Honda-powered unit before this one.

I did some research online, looking at features, price, and reviews, and this one came up on top. I even looked at Harbor Freight, which has a similar model, but it was more expensive (more on that later).

Bought my Generac 6598 to replace a pressure washer that the pump failed on. It arrived in perfect condition and took only 10-15 minutes to assemble. I've used it twice so far, for a total of 3 hours to power wash a concrete patio, pool deck and driveway/sidewalk. I used a 15" surface cleaner attachment and it did an outstanding job.

My pressure washer arrived damaged the gas cap was broken and the hose also I called power washer direct customer service and inform them. in turn they contacted Generac and said my parts would be delivered in a week to 10 days.

after 12 days past I called Power Washer direct back and I did not receive my parts. They called Generac and was tolded that it would be another 3 to 4 weeks. Now I have had my unit for over a month and have been unable to use it until or if I ever get the parts.

I Love My New Generac Pressure Washer!
Great product for home use. Gets the job done. Easy set up, east start. I have used it to clean my pool deck, boat house, boat, house and office.

My only problem is I have had a difficult time keeping the detergent line primed. Other than that, it is a SUPERB piece of equipment.

Tracy,
Thank you for submitting your review of the 3100 PSI residential grade pressure washer. We are sorry to learn of the issues that you are currently experiencing with your detergent line. While the siphoning tube should be securely connected to the unit's pump and submerged in the detergent when soap-based applications are desired, we would recommend contacting an independent authorized service provider in your local area for any required diagnostic work. These independent parties have been trained to not only determine the cause of a unit's issues, but to also provide any applicable warranty coverage as well. If you have any additional comments, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

This is not a flimsy, crappy machine. It's sturdy and well made. The power washer works great, with zero complaints!! This is definitely worth the money, which, compared to other machines, is much less.

Purchased the unit back in the winter but just got around to using it. Cranked on the first pull, but be sure you have your foot on the front of the unit as it moves. Love the multiple wand tips and easy storage.

Used first time to clean front steps (treated wood of mold and mildew). Worked great! Fed some soapy solution thru the injector system. Caution: keep the line away from the exhaust. Unit gets a top rating from my experience.

Feel We Made A Good Choice
In Florida - mold and mildew stains on the house's exterior are just something we deal with. For that reason, I was a little disappointed to see chlorine bleach is a no-no thru the dispensing system on this unit.. but that aside, there is plenty of pressure to minimize spraying separately and brushing where bleach would be a nice option.

Having read other reviews criticizing the hot muffler placement in relation to the hose, I simply zip-tied the sprayer hose to exit to the left and away... more

Super Machine
I received my Generac pressure washer in 2 days after purchase. I followed the steps and assembled it. I put oil and gas in it and pulled rope 3 times and it cranked.

It was so easy to use that my wife washed the carport and side walk. We stopped several times to change the water hose away from our flowers.

It cranked on the first pull every time. I have never had anything that started that easy. Thanks for such a super machine.

After the second use, I put it in my garage only to find a large puddle of gas under the pressure washer 30 minutes later. The gas tank is leaking, looks like the seams are bad, gas is dripping off the lower bolts and all around the lower part of the tank.

Now I'm looking at a 28 mile drive each way to drop this off for repair. Clearly Generac needs to review their quality control procedures. I am very aware this is not a top of the line product, but this is a complete waste of my time and I... more

Bryan,
I apologize for the issues you are having with the unit. In all honesty, it is very rare to see this issue on a Generac product. However, the manufacturer warranty is there for failures due to workmanship and quality.

I apologize there is not a service center closer to your home. If you feel comfortable replacing the gas tank, I can have Generac send a new part directly to you. This is the first time I am hearing about the issue you are having with the unit, and we are here to support and help if we can. Feel free to call me direct at 800-710-7499.

As for the sales, they are dictated by the manufacturer. Unfortunately your order was placed in February, and I am unable to match that price at this time. The sales are funded directly from Generac and not our promotions.

Too Cold
It's been too cold since I bought it. I'll let you know this spring when my water hydrants thaw.

Nice Machine, Easy To Use
First, tye machine was easy to assemble. Then, worked well first time. The multiple nozzles let me strip moss and then clean up the mess. The gas tank capacity is not much so the tank needs filling often. Really easy to use, hoses are long enough to let you concentrate on the job and not moving the machine. Excellent purchase.

Excellent Performer
The Gererac is an excellent performer in SW Florida where frequent pressure washing is required for tile roofs, paver driveways and pool decks. Opening the box and assembling the unit was easy. Set up is fast and simple.

Mobility is good. Engine starts and restarts usually on 2nd pull. The 30' hose is too short for roof use, so purchased a 50' from PWD. The 30' hose is a little stiff under pressure. Would prefer that the trigger pull be easier, as it is tiresome under extended use.

Home Work Horse
Needed to pressure wash a deck, house siding (including Hardieplank siding), and concrete driveway. So far, so good, but still have some siding and all the driveway to do. Some stubborn mildew on trim high up was resistant even with second-story soap and spray nozzles on an extended wand.

Will try a new mix next. It did take off some paint and gouge a little because I wasn't careful enough at the beginning. It is loud, so I wear ear protection and goggles, and the vibration / shaking of... more

Love The Way It Operates
Works great, not sure how the soap dispenses. Need to keep trying to see how it works.

Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Celso,
Please keep in mind the only way to dispense soap on a unit like this is with the low pressure nozzle. It will need some time for the soap to pull through the line, but you will need to use the black nozzle in order to dispense the soap. If you have further questions, please let us know.

First Use Of Generac
Just finished doing my driveway, back patio, service yard and patio furniture. The Generac worked great, and was easy to assemble and operate.

One precaution, make sure the black nozzle is fully inserted in the wand as I shot it across the yard on the first try. Hard to find in the grass.

Very Good Washer
The Generac really does the job . I have had a 3000 psi washer but this machine is more powerful and made much better, No regrets in my purchase.
