Long known for its portable generator design, Generac's line of residential power washers enable you to wash your deck, clean your cars and boats, and keep your roof maintained. The Generac 6020 provides 2,500 PSI of power and 2.3 gallons per minute (GPM) for a cleaning power rating of 5750.
It's powered by a Generac overhead valve (OHV) horizontal-shaft engine, which makes the pump more accessible by positioning it well above the ground so you don't have to kneel down to make hose connections. Additionally, Generac OHV engines come standard with low-oil shutdown to protect and prolong the life of the engine. Both the engine and pump are perfectly balanced over the axle and wheels for almost effortless maneuverability, regardless of terrain.
It comes with an ergonomic spray gun, which features a unique cushion grip that reduces fatigue by minimizing vibration. The innovative easy-to-pull spray trigger can be held with a minimum of effort, and the Quick-Click nozzle tips are easy to replace.
This power washer is backed by a two-year limited warranty.
Note for California residents: This model is not CARB-compliant. Units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.
What Is PSI and GPM?
Short for "pounds per square inch," PSI is a measure of the water pressure coming out of the power washer. A typical garden hose dispenses water at about 30-40 PSI, and a coin-operated car wash provides about 700 PSI. A power washer, by contrast, typically dispenses water at several thousand PSI. Another important factor in power washers is GPM, which stands for "gallons per minute" and describes how much water is flowing through the pressure washer.
Together, they provide your power washer's cleaning power. Multiply PSI (which gives you the power to lift dirt and grime) by GPM (which provides the necessary quantity of water to wash it away) to get the cleaning power rating. The higher the number, the greater the cleaning power.
Here are some application examples with how much cleaning power (PSI and GPM) you'll need to get the job done.

My purpose in writing this review is because of the Customer Service. The Generac hose got a hole in it while I was cleaning my lanai. The hole was probably my fault, because I noticed it had been touching the hot engine for a while as I was cleaning with it. I phoned Generac directly, and they shipped a new hose for free- no questions asked! Because of this, I highly recommend products from this company.
Update (October, 2012)- the hose sprung a leak again (when I was pulling on it), and again they replaced it for free! Amazing service!
It is May 23rd and they still have not repaired my equipment. When I call GENERAC customer service they refuse to help me because I cannot give them a repair order number. When I call the repair shop they claim GENERAC has not assigned a order number even though they've completed the paperwork and sent it in.
I emailed GENERAC detailing when I dropped off the equipment, and noted that I was having trouble getting my item repaired in a timely manner. GENERAC never responded.
I'm very disappointed in their complete failure to stand by their products and repair them in a timely manner.
I ordered it on Tuesday and it arrived on Wednesday just like the system is supposed to work. The package did require an adult signature. Fortunately there was someone at home to sign for it.
After unboxing all of the small items first and removing the packing cardboard I was able to sort of roll it out of the box instead of having to lift it out. The instructions say to cut the corners of the box but since I am a man I don't need instructions... right?
But really it is nearly completely assembled in so much as the wheels are attached and ready to roll. All I did was tilt the box gradually while lifting up on the handle which was already 50% together. Tilt and roll seemed easier than cutting away the corners of the heavy duty shipping container.
All of the parts were accounted for. The Generac model that I ordered did not come with a washing fluid (soap) reservoir. May be the next higher model does. I didn't care. The manual has instructions (if applicable) showing how to insert the siphon tube into the tank.
After reading some of the other reviews on this product I have noticed the possibility of the high pressure hose to come into contact with the extremely hot muffler shroud. One simple solution (in theory) for me will be to use a couple of zip ties (aka cable ties) to secure the high pressure hose to the upper part of the handle.Read more ›
