The problem with most pressure washers which have been designed for residential use is the fact that they are not all that powerful. Pressure washers are meant to reduce the amount of effort that it takes to clean large areas properly. Some of the cheaper units on the market cause more problems than they are worth. This is why the Generac 6024 Gas Powered Residential Pressure Washer caught my attention. This is a unit which claims that it can deliver the power of a professional washer at a household price. Let’s take a little look.
This is a gas powered unit. This means that the Generac is going to be absolutely perfect for cleaning the outside of your home, where you may not have access to a power cable. As with most gas machinery, you get a lot more power than if you would have purchased an electrical unit instead. This should take care of almost everything that you blast with it.
One of the things that I absolutely love about the Generac is the fact that it is able to actually stand up on its own. I have seen plenty of cheap pressure washers on the market. I am sure that you may have used a couple of them before. Their main problem seems to be the fact that as soon as you tug on that cord they just fall over. You will not be dealing with that with the Generac. There is a touch of stability about it. The large wheels make it easy to transport around too.
In terms of tech specs, the Generac boasts a 212CC engine. This is able to deliver up to 3100 PSI. This is a huge number. It will pump out 2.7 gallons of water each and every minute. What does this mean to you if you do not understand the specs? Well, it means that you can look forward to a far easier clean. Seriously, you will be pumping through the smaller jobs in minutes.
Generac 6024 Pressure Washer Problems
- Engine won’t start
- Water leaks from hose
Surprisingly, this is one of only a few pressure washers on the market that has very few negative reviews. In fact, the only negative reviews that the Generac Powered Residential Pressure Washer seems to have attracted the idea that there are ‘faulty units’ out of the box. Do not let this scare you though. You see, this is a complex bit of machinery. It is fairly common for any sort of machinery to develop faults from time to time. Every manufacturer has to deal with it. You should really be in awe that the unit has so little complaints about how it actually works. I know I was! That is what interested me in the unit to begin with.
Now, this is not the cheapest residential pressure washer on the market. This is probably one of the greatest downsides of the Generac 6024. However, in my opinion you are getting a lot of bang for your buck. You are getting something that would not look out of place in the back of a professional cleaner’s truck. It is absolutely superb value. This pressure washer is more than capable of handling anything that you throw at it. You will get years of useful service life out of it. This will be going strong long after cheaper units have failed. It is 100% worth every single penny that you pay for it. It therefore gets my recommendation.
