Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eight Very bad experience
I struggled on which pressure washer to chose. After talking with a friend of mine who owns a Generac, and loves it, I settled on this one. I read a few of the poor reviews talking about oil leaks, but I saw this happened on other brands as well. So what were the chances? Got it today, put oil in it, gassed it up, hooked the water hose up and turned the hose on. Then fired it up. After about 5 pulls, she started up to white billowing smoke and oil spraying everywhere including my concrete driveway, my leg, and all over the unit. Looks to be leaking around the seal on the valve cover. It was flat pouring out of there. So I will be returning it to Home Depot in the morning and I guess buying the Ryobi. Just really disappointed.

This pressure washer was easy to assemble right out of the box. It starts on one pull almost every time. I used to it to clean various items such as lawn furniture and wooden bridges and have yet to find anything that it would not clean. The machine is so powerful you need to be careful what you use it on and to test a inconspicuous spot. The pressure washer on high can easily pull the grain up from wood if you go to close. The soap siphon also works well and gives good coverage of soap onto the item being cleaned. The only con is the clip to hold the hose could be built with a better design, rolling up the pressure hose is sometimes clumsy and hard to get organized.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nemo Really a nice pressure washer
The product works great and is easy to start and use. I like the interchangeable nozzles and the front storage system for them. The only drawbacks I have found so far are the hose is pretty stiff and hard to coil and uncial and the front panel is flimsy especially where one would put their hand down when trying to pull start the unit. It starts really well though so its just a matter of not resting your hand there. I like that you can easily just use a bucket for soap or use the attached container if preferred. The variable pressure settings are really nice too so one doesn't take the paint off the boat, (unless you want too).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redcairn Excellent Product and Excellent Value
My 3rd PW over past 8 years. This by far exceeds the other manufacturer's models I have used. Just prepared my home for painting with an initial cleaning and then using higher pressure nozzle to remove peeling paint from porch columns and it performed perfectly.
Additionally I didn't notice my arms or shoulders being as strained as experienced in previous models. At 70 years old I look for ease of setup and ease of use and the Generac certainly met my expectations.
I have even recommended this model to two neighbors who stopped by to check on my labors. They were also impressed by its quiet operation.
Good job for an USA product. Thanks, Generac! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rob1955 First Power Washer - Love it !!!!!!!
After much research and review, we purchased the Generac 6602 power washer. Given I have just retired; my first project was to power wash our arbor and prep for staining. Assembly was easy and the washer started with the first pull. The power washer comes with a power dial that can be adjusted for - car washing, house cleaning, fence cleaning, and brick cleaning. There are three pressure nozzles - Red for blast pressure, Green for wash and Black for detergent use. I used the fence setting for the Arbor; and adjusted nozzle types as needed. The power has a chemical tank that detergent can be used with the black nozzle. I now have about 12 hours of use with the power washer and have had no issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VegasJH Great pressure washer
I had originally purchased this to do odds around the house & wash our vehicles. I didn't know back when I got it I would REALLY be needing it! I picked up a RZR UTV & each time out it gets real muddy. I add some pressure washer safe soap to the tank, spray it down on low then bump up to the green tip to get it really cleaned of. Its saved me $$$ trying to do this at a car wash that allows something this dirty, trust me!
I've had it for a little over 1 year & even after sitting over the winter, still starts on 1 or maybe 2 pulls. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RUT Think twice about this.......
I received my pressure washer today and assembled it with little trouble. However, when it came time to insert the (green) pressure nozzle into the wand it would just not go. It's bottoming out well before the point where it locks in. Since I knew Home Depot would be of no assistance I called Generac direct. Well, their customer service is the worst ever, and I was actually told they had no "Tech" people to answer any questions. I was referred to a local dealer a couple of towns over, and I'll be visiting them tomorrow for assistance. The moral of the story is don't buy something like this from Home Depot, but rather a local dealer who can actually be of assistance. You live and learn!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan First Class Quality right out of the box
Very easy to set up out of the box. Add oil (not the whole bottle) , gas and turn on the water. The pressure washer has more than enough power to do any homeowner job with ease. My only problem is with the recoil start. It pulls off to the side which makes it hard to pull and tends to move the whole unit towards you as you pull. Maybe it could be turned so you are pulling up.
