I recently purchased a Generac 6596 and am extremely happy with the performance of this unit except I would like to add more length (25') to the pressure hose. It gets quite confusing when looking at the choices offered. Can you please offer your suggestion for a 25' extension hose for this unit?
Mike Baird

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. I would recommend the MTM hose model 30.0130. This is a 25FT hose, just like the one you have. You would then need adapter model D10040 to attach the 2 hoses together. I have attached links for you to view those items.

Had a 5 yr old Homelite(3100 psi) unit that went bad. The local small engine repair guy said gas power washers kept in garages and only used 1-2 time a year build up gunk in the carbs. If I buy the 6596. is there a storage method to avoid this?
Tom Leibman

Answer
Yes, anytime you store a small engine it is recommended to put a fuel stabilizer in the tank to avoid build up and gumming in the carburetor. I have attached a link for you to view the product I am referring to.

Mike, I am looking at the Generac One-Wash 3100 PSI and the Generac 2800 PSI. Is the main difference aside from the 2800 to the 3100 PSI that the One wash you can adjust the pressure or can you do that on the 2800?
Chris

Answer
The 6598 and the 6602 are both 3100 PSI units with the 6602 having an adjuster on the pump for those newer to pressure washing.

The 6598 and the 6602 are both larger machines than the 6596.

Hi Mike, I am interested in a pressure washer. I'll use it to clean my deck and ranch house probably once a year and occasionally clean my garden tractor with it. I like the 2800 psi generac that is on sale but I'm concerned about the cheaper units and their pumps. I believe this one has aluminum pistons which seem to me would be prone to corrosion. Should I buy something like this or save my money and go for something more than double the price? I do take good care of my stuff so, it will get rinsed out, etc...

Answer
The Generac units are some of the best consumer grade units in the industry today. They use an AR brand axial cam pump with an aluminum head, but do tend to hold up for consumer use. I would not hesitate to recommend the Generac Unit.

What is the minimum water pressure required for a Generac 6596
Phil 
from Texas 
May 14, 2015
Answer
Per the owners manual page 8 found under our specs tab.

Do Not siphon standing water for the water supply. Use Only cold water. Water supply must be adequate to handle greater than 3.8 gallons per minute and no less than 30 PSI.

You mentioned using a Briggs turbo spray tip on the Generac model 6596 in order to have a "5 in 1" tip. which one would work for the 2800PSI The chart has 2500PSI and 3000PSI?
Fred 
from West Virginia

Answer
You could use the 5 in 1 tip with your unit. The Briggs model 6197 would match up perfectly with the Generac 6598 model. However, the 5 in 1 tip has nothing to do with a turbo nozzle. The 5 in 1 tip connects to the end of the wand and replaces the colored spray tips. It allows you to adjust the spray fan without switching out the tip. A turbo nozzle would connect in the same place. It takes the pencil sharp high pressure spray, and rotates it at approximately 3600 RPM. This gives you a 5-7" high pressure cleaning swath, allowing you to complete jobs in 50% of the time than using the red tip.

Mike, we have two old washers, but want to get one new one. Trying to decide between two at Lowes. Generac 2800psi or Troy built 2800psi Briggs & Stratton. Complaints In the reviews, the Troy had a small fuel tank and the hose connections were tight quarters. The Generac someone complained it didn't have a plate with the model or serial # so he couldn't find a parts listing on line. He may be right. The model # at Lowes is 6549 but it doesn't come up on Generacs web. I would like to get the Generac but I want to able to get parts too. Will that be a problem ?

Answer
I do not sell or specialize in parts here. Also, Lowes gets different products then dealers like my self. You should reach out to Generac with your concerns about Lowes products. If you are looking to purchase a model from us, we offer free shipping and no sales tax here at Pressurewashersdirect.com

In what ways is the Briggs and stratton 2800psi washer better than the Generac 6596. I would like a washer that I could put extension rods on to wash my house. Are they both able to install rods on the handle? I just need a washer around my house to do little jobs but I would like it to last more than a couple years. Are both pumps the same quality? Thanks

Answer
Here is the listing for 2800 PSI Pressure Washers. You can look at up to 4 pressure washers side by side by clicking the Compare boxes on the left side of the screen. That way you can easily decide which features appeal to you most.

Both units use M22 connectors, so a Telescoping Wand or Extension Wand will work.

The folks at Generac have put some of their units on sale for the next 9 days, so you can get more bang for your buck.

Since you're looking to keep the unit for a long time, you could also use the Service Locator to find out which brand has the easiest access to Factory Service in your area- in the long run that convenience could outweigh the small price difference.

What are the pump pistons made of?
B Wheeler 
from Ohio 
June 04, 2014
Answer
This unit comes with an axial cam pump. The pistons are made of metal (usually an aluminum alloy) for strength without excess weight.

You usually won't find ceramic or ceramic-coated pistons until you get into units with triplex plunger pumps.

I hope this helps- we appreciate your interest in Pressure Washers Direct!
