Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Retired Good balance.
I ordered the unit on line. It arrived with a broken foot rest. After a phone contact, a replacement part arrived in less than a week. A small long-necked funnel is needed to fill the engine with oil. During assembly, I had trouble aligning the holes in the upper handle with the latch buttons in the handle supports. The first time I tried, one of the latch buttons slipped out of place and slid down the inside of the handle support tube. On my second attempt, I gave the parts a shot of WD-40 and things slipped together without a problem. The engine runs smoothly and the unit has plenty of power to do what I need to do. It rolls easily around my yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Denver_E33 Easy to setup and tons of power
I received this pressure washer as a gift and I am very pleased with the performance so far. Setup was very easy, I was washing my truck within 20 minutes. I really like the handgrip of the spray gun and it has more than enough power.
I have a couple of criticisms. The length of provided hose is a little short, depending on the intended use you may want to consider purchasing a longer one (I will need to). I also had to fight to get it started for the first time. I'm sure it is just my inexperience but it did seem like is unit doesn't like colder weather. Once I figured out the proper choke setting it worked like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smitman71 Great quality & solid build
I like this washer a lot. I did quite a bit of research before settling on this unit. I like how convient the hook ups are. The unit runs a long time with out needing more fuel. The oil shutoff is nice to protect the unit even though it shut it off unless moved very carefully. It look like it should be a snap to change the oil. Starting it is very easy. It is powerful. The only downsides I'd say it is very loud, a bit louder than my old unit (but it's more powerful). I also grown to like the adjustible stream on the unit it's replacing. I don't see anyone offering it anymore. I kept the old wand and plan to try it on the Generac.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Should Have Been the FIRST Purchase!
Have gone through two electric pressure washers in the past three years. Researched the gas models extensively and settled on the Generac 2700. It took longer to get it out of the box than it did to set the machine up!
Filled the power washer oil and stabilized gas, pulled the cord and it started. Previously, it took six hours to clean our deck and siding in the back of the house...did it in an hour and it was cleaner! After doing more research there is a product to use when storing the pressure washer, that will become part of the routine for this machine.
We have a home generator by Generac it performs flawlessly as well. Highly recommend this machine and brand!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PapaBigZit Nice Power Washer
The power washer arrived safely. Nothing broken in shipping. It was very easy to put together. The directions are well written too. It does a good job as expected. It's a power washer so it will make some noise but was a little less than expected. I like the ease of moving it due to the design and nice large wheels. I also like it's dimensions because it doesn't take up much space when stored. The only negative is that the 25ft hose blew after about 8 hours of power washing the first week we had it. It's been about a week and we're still waiting on the replacement. Overall we're happy with our purchase. It seems like a quality product. I'm hoping we just got a defective hose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJRAP Excellent product for the price.
After purchasing 3 different powerwashers at a local store, and returning all 3 because they did not have the power I was looking for, I finally purchased this Generac 2700 Power Washer. As soon as I put it together and read the manual, I began using it. It is by far the best of all power washers I have tried before. The Generac name is also another reason why I purchased this one after finally doing some research. I'm now going to purchase a Generac generator as my neighbor purchased one and said he was completely satisfied. Don't look any further, Generac is the way to go for power washers!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Billy So far so good
Got it as a gift. Due to the weather I have only been able to use it once. Setup was easy, however the angled oil fill/dipstick is a very poor design. It was ~40ºF out and first time starting it only took 6-8 pulls, 1-2 afterwards. You must hold the trigger open to get it started, pressure builds quickly in the pump making it almost impossible to pull the starter. It made very nice work of rinsing the salt and grime off of the cars, I did not use any agent through the injector. The hose was a little stiff, and wanted to stay coiled up, but thats the nature of a plastic hose in cool temps.
I only used the white tip, and didn't try any other tasks, but I feel confident that it will be plenty adequate for my needs.

This pressure washer fits my needs 100%.I needed something compact as my garage is getting full & this washer fits the bill for that,I was very impressed with the start on 1st pull & the amount of pressure generated.I have used other washers over the years & this one tops them all for portability,ease of use & efficiency for any job a homeowner like myself would tackle.I previously purchased, many years ago, a Generac portable generator & was extremely pleased with it & that helped me finalize my decision-Kudos to Generac-Keep up the good work!
