Q: I am looking for a pressure washer that does not leak. I am on my second Husky (I know) and am tired of getting more water on my pants than on the work.

Is that possible vCard with this model?

by Jim Farrell from Maryland on July 02, 2016

A: I've only had one leak if the hose connection was not secure and I used teflon tape and that fixed it up nicely. You'll love this machine. It's a monster of a unit.
by Brian, Product Expert
Q: The Generac 6565 comes with a 1/4" quick connect correct.
Is the Generac compatible with the
MTM Hydro Long-Range Detergent Foamer Attachment (Cold Water Gas)-
Do I need an adaptor to work with the foamer? it states Includes Both 1/4" Male Quick Connect & M22 Threaded Fittings, but then it states

•Will not fit Generac or Simpson quick connect spray wands--What The flock!?


Also the General Pump Professional 4.0 Orifice Turbo Nozzle states "Will not fit Simpson or Generac spray wands" is that for a consumer grade PW that does not have the quick connect end?

Thanks again Mike.

by Brian Gillespie from Oregon on April 23, 2015

A: I apologize, the Generac couplers are to shallow to accept the standard quick connect plugs.

However, by simply purchasing the AR Plug, it will fit those wands. I have attached a link for you to view the plug you would need to purchase with those items.

Generac has a great reputation for their power equipment, and this newcomer should be no exception - we have received a lot of positive feedback on this model.

This pressure washer includes a Generac OHV commercial grade engine and an AR triplex pump.

With that being said, this 4200 PSI, 4 GPM unit from Generac is basically a professional-grade machine at a prosumer-grade price.

Maybe You'll Get Lucky
So I bought this even after reading some bad reviews of it mainly to do with stalling when hot and hard to pull. But my unit did that one better right out of the box it wouldn't start not even a cough. So I went all over it and eventually found that the spark plug had been smashed to the point where there was gap. I regapped the plug and pulled until I found out the thing will not start on choke only run. Do you know how many pulls that took to find that out?

So now I'm happy it's running... more

Matt,
I am so sorry you've had issues with your pressure washer! Generac is such a large company that I'm afraid they don't keep their Service Directory as up-to-date as they could.

If you feel you aren't being treated fairly at the Authorized Repair location, please give me a call directly at 800-710-7499 or email me at service@pressurewashersdirect.com and I will be happy to ask our Generac sales rep to step in on your behalf. I will need the name & phone number of the shop, your invoice number, and the name of the person you're speaking to.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience!

Great!!!!!
This is a great pressure washer. I used it to strip the paint off my pool walls and floor. I've been doing pressure washing for years and this pressure washer does not disappoint.

Just remember this machine is going to be physically bigger than your average 3000 PSI machines.

I recommend getting a spinning stripping tip with this Machine.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable, Features

Wand Failed After Three Uses
I used this pressure washer three times in 2 months and on the third time the value in the wand stuck open. I was able to get it closed but it does not close all the way.

Generac is sending me a new one so I guess we'll see what happens.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Kevin,
For best performance please make sure to keep grit and dirt out of your wand by using the built-in wand hooks instead of laying it on the ground.

You Should Read The Instructions
Very easy to start unlike some reviews, you should read the instructions.

Has lots of power, it will push you back. I have not found anything yet that it will not take off.

Awesome
So I purchased this pressure washer simply for the 4200 and the 4.0 gallons per minute but I'm so happy with everything about this machine!

I have used many other gas pressure washers with Cat pumps and big PSI that cost almost double the amount of this Generac and let me tell you I would buy this over them every time now that I have used this machine- this is just the best value out period!

I seen that some other people had problems starting their unit, let me tell you I have never had... more

Quality That's Obvious
I did quite a bit of research on pressure washers before deciding on this model by Generac. Like most people the immediate thing that made it stand out was the price. Compared to other PW's in the 4200 PSI range you were looking at saving a minimum of $200 to $300 clear up to $700. I kinda liked that.

I knew Generac had made generators since forever and had a solid rep in that field. The pump they used was the same as the other competitors with a couple of exceptions where they were using... more

Second Time In Use Though It Blew Up
first time I used it it was great. The 2nd time I thought it blew up b/c of all the white smoke. I needed it badly but had to take it to be repaired. Was not happy.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Charles,
I apologize for the issues you are having, however it sounds to me like there may have been too much oil added to the unit.

This would cause the white smoke you are referring to. Also, Generac does warranty the item for 2 years and should be able to help find out the problem. Any questions you can call me direct at 800-710-7499.

Awesome Product And Service!
First off....... This thing is a BEAST!!!! Definitely worth the money. I bought it primarily due to its 4 GPM rating and it hasn't disappointed. I was able to run a 20" surface cleaner with this machine and had GREAT results! I have used it for down streaming and can easily hit two stories with it. :)

I paid extra for lift-gate service and was glad I did. The unit was quite "hefty" to say the least. Everything was included as advertised and start up was achieved after 3... more
