I purchased my Generac Power Washer based on the positive reviews I read, and have not been disappointed. Assembly was a cinch; nothing more than reading the instructions and attaching a few parts. It started the first time I pulled the cord, and has continued to start on the first or second pull ever since. Pleanty of power for most jobs. My only complaint was when I tried to change the oil as recommended after the first few hours of operation. The drain plug is hard to reach and calls for a metric socket, which I didn't have I couldn't budge it with vice grips. I ended up draining the oil out of where you put it in, which was a mess. Other than that, a fine product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raiders155 Great product, very minor equipment drawback
Excellent product. Very easy to put together and use. All of the accessories it comes with are good as well except for one minor issue. The holder where you store the hose when you are done doesn't hold the hose very well. The hose unravels cause it needs to be a bigger, sturdier holder. Everything else is great. Big tires for ease of movement, the holders for the different tips....would recommend to a friend.

So far, this has been a great product. Since getting this product 2 weeks ago, I have pressure washed the driveway, patio, boat, and started on the wood fence. My wife loves it too. The only problem is that she keeps finding me more projects to do. A great product for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VirginiaDIYer Good value for a solid product!
Delivery was quick, as was the assembly of the snap-together handle. No problems at all in getting the engine started. The oil fill is a little awkward - you will need a small funnel. It started right up after a few pulls. (I don't like how the rope pull goes by a metal edge - if it ever kicked back and pulled in the rope, that's where your hand would hit.) The power and pressure seem just right for a homeowner - but keep in mind that pressure washers can pull skin right off you, or worse, if you accidentally aim the nozzle at yourself at close range even for an instant. Wear long pants and safety goggles with a strap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by proffesionaljavaprog Does what a 2500 psi 2.3 g/m PW should
It works great. Please read the directions. Inexperienced users can learn a lot from them. I know I did. This is my first gas powered Pressure Washer. The guy who says he loses pressure on and off as he goes doesn't understand why. The pressure washer is drawing 2.3 gallons of water per minute from his garden hose. If the PSI drops below 30 as a result, the hose will contract because of the vacuum created in it. That squeezes off the water from flowing. until it can "recharge". Any sufficiently powered pressure washer will behave the same way on your system. Get yourself a solid garden hose that wont contract under vacuum. Or add a pressure booster to your water supply.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by c0wsg0mo00 Perfect for everything around the house
I bought this for my boyfriend because he refused to use an electric one and this was within my price range. As far as I can tell it's awesome; he has used it almost everyday cleaning the house, edging the driveway, washing cars, de-mildewing the deck. It's easy to start up and has more than enough power (it's actually a little scary, the 0° nozzle blasted through our blacktop driveway) but the 25° nozzle is perfect for cars and house.
Only thing it doesn't have is the reservoir for detergent but it does have the capability to add one on; just have to go back to HD and get the parts.
Awesome purchase, very happy.

I've had this for about three weeks and it's been great. The driveway is white again and the decks are cleaner than they've been since they were new.
I added a brass quick connection at the garden hose port and have a brass shutoff valve on the end of the garden hose right behind the quick connect. Quickly disconnecting the hose makes it much easier to move the pressure washer and set up again.
I did purchase a 15 degree nozzle, from a local source, because it gives a little more umph on the really tough spots. The unit only comes with 25 degrees and a straight stream plus a soap nozzle. The 15 degree nozzle is a worthwhile addition.
This is a nice piece of equipment. I'm finished with electric pressure washers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AttackUncle Overall nice machine
The machine is made very well. It wouldn't start right away with the choke on. Turned off the choke and it started on the first pull. It holds quite a bit of fuel, which is good because it USES quite a bit of fuel. The hose it comes with is cheap and kinks easily. The hook to hold the hose is useless. Everything else about this pressure washer is top notch. It is well built and solid. Assembly was a snap. It ran flawlessly. It is well balanced and doesn't tip over easily like some that I have used in the past. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
