Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Solid Machine for bigger jobs
Had machine for ~ 3 months at time of review; usage is general home care. Great power for home use, 3.8 GPM helps keep large amounts of material moving. 35 foot hose is nice, a 50 foot house would be perfect. Wish that the unit had a more significant muffler; it's quite loud and you really need ear protection for anything other than short usages. Your neighbors know this is running. Also, it be nice if packaging was a bit more compact - frame provides protection but also makes it big overall. Fold down handle helps. Unit starts reasonably well - key is to be sure to relieve the line pressure after a few pulls. Adjust the above and it gets 5 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1lakejunkie This product works great as expected
I purchased this model to start my own pressure washing business this summer! I chose this model because you get the most bang for your buck! Other models were way more expensive with nothing more to offer! Plus, you can't beat the Generac Gaurantee!!! Thanks Generac!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BG64 Powerful
I purchased this unit for my personal use. I have to say 3800 psi is very powerful, more powerful than I thought it would be. Love the power washer I just have to be careful on my vinyl siding. Usually starts on first pull.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sme920 Excellent Pressure Washer
Very easy set-up! Basically unbox, read instructions (2x), add oil, fuel, and start (2nd pull). Start was easy and I am 155lbs. Machine runs well, plenty of pressure, and very nice wand - it is long and heavy duty. Probably didn't need this much machine but I like purchasing good equipment and this is very good equipment. Have about 4hrs use on it so far.
Only complaint is that on the pump there is the head of a nut near the water hose connection that has taken a chunk out of my thumb twice will tightening the hose - now I wear a glove. It will walk a little on hard surfaces and leave marks if you don't put a towel or rag under the rubber feet.
Bought a Surface Cleaner for sidewalks, patio, and composite decking. It is amazing! Be sure to dial pressure back a good bit so it doesn't take off too much of your surfaces, especially decking - dial it way back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ph22 What a pressure washer
I had a craftsman pressure for about 6 years. Junk from the first time I used it.It worked ok but would take 3-4 hours to wash the deck. With this generac only 20 minutes. It will clean anything and everything. The only downfall is the wand is very long! Great for doing your siding but unless your 6 ft 6 you are going to want to buy a shorter lance to wash a deck sidewalk or driveway.Should of bought this years ago. Worth every penny!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tshep Excellent machine
I got this machine about a year ago after my previous washer of some 10 years - a 2700 psi unit - was beginning to die. And I have not regretted it. The engine starts at the first pull...usually. Once or twice for some reason it required about 5 attempts, but usually it's just one or two. And the washer has serious muscle, making light work of any cleaning job - at least the ones I've had.
About the only thing I think would improve this unit is provision for battery starting. It's a fairly big engine and if you have a hard start and end up having to pull it 5 or 6 times (rare), your hemoglobin starts to drop! The other small critique is that operating the trigger can tire a thinly muscled person rapidly. I've had to come up with some creative ways to keep the trigger pulled in for long jobs (lasting 4 or 5 hours).
Overall, it's worth every cent. I heartily recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leisurelake Very happy with the Generac
This pressure washer is VERY powerful. I use it to clean my driveway and back patio and it got both surfaces bright and clean without using detergents or degreasers. I have logged over 8 hours with it and cleaned over 1,200 sq ft of surface that had several years of dirt and grime. Pros: tons of cleaning power, unit does not leak, has a large gas tank that limits interruptions, and the lance and gun are sturdy and long enough to reach outer surface of 1st story gutters and siding. Cons: awkward location of pull cord, foot pads leave black marks, screws that attach hose holder to frame are too long and do not work. Highly recommend.
