Power wash your deck, driveway, patio furniture and more with this powerful pressure washer from Generac. Long been known for their quality engines, this model is no exception, equipped with a powerful 196cc Generac OHV engine. Also included are four Quick-Click nozzle tips (0-degree Blast, 25-degree Clean, 40-degree Wash, Soap), and a 25 foot hose. Generac's power washers are carefully engineered for longevity and ease of use, with well thought-out features not found on competitive models. Easy to maneuver, the welded frame is designed for durability, with a built-in step for easy starting and an integrated gun holster. The easily accessible high-performance axial cam pump provides maximum heat dissipation for extended life and the easy to pull trigger reduces fatigue. The pump is located well above the ground, eliminating the need to kneel down to make hose connections. Backed with a 2 year limited warranty. Founded in 1959, Generac has earned a reputation as the company home and business owners turn to when the power goes out. The first to engineer affordable home standby generators, along with the first engine developed specifically for the rigors of generator use, Generac now sells more home standby generators than all of our competitors combined. We have brought this same level of commitment and quality to our pressure washer products. Our customer research has led us to engineer our pressure washers from the ground up, to meet your specific demands. Generac manufactures the widest range of power products in the marketplace including portable, RV, residential, commercial and industrial generators. Generac also operates three large factories which employs thousands of workers in the American Midwest.
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 6022 provides 2,700 PSI of power and 2.3 gallons per minute (GPM) for a cleaning power rating of 6210.
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.

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.

One word of caution to new users: Always point the wand into the air when you pull the trigger. The first burst of water comes out strong and can do damage before it settles down.
A tip: To pressure wash a house, you'll probably need to get a "High Pressure Soap Shooter Nozzle". I guess you could get on a ladder to reach the upper parts of your house, but $35 for the nozzle is safer.
Also, The pressure washer has a safety feature that shuts it off when it tilts. Everytime you move it, it shuts down. It restarts easy, though.
The only drawback to this machine is that the hose is rather stiff and connects right by the muffler. The first time I used it, the hose kinked back and against the muffler and melted through, so I had to buy a replacement hose, which is a much better and more flexible hose. I would suggest to Generac that they supply a better hose and also find a way to protect it from the muffler.
Otherwise, a great machine so far. I plan on wearing it out on a bunch of jobs as soon as spring hits!
The seller was really fast in shipping it, and it was in great condition. The price was the best I could find on the internet by a long shot. I'm a happy homesteader.
To avoid the problems with gas, make sure that all gas is treated with a sta-bil or similar product, and once done with the small engine for the day, shut it off with the gas valve, not the "on-off" switch to keep the fuel out of the carb bowl. That'll keep it running for along time. With the cold weather, it it's stored in a location that will be below freezing make sure to drain the hose and pump, and it wouldn't hurt to add some Briggs and Stratton "Pump-Saver". It'll prevent the water in the pump from freezing and lube and protect the seals as well.
My first call was to Generac. After sitting on hold for about 20 minutes I spoke to someone who was doing her best to help me. I did not know what the part was, she didn't know what the part was...so I ended up being transferred to parts. Parts didn't know what the part was. I asked for an exploded part diagram (I couldn't find one on their website and the one included with the unit is a generic, poorly detailed, diagram). He pointed me to the website and an absolutely horrible parts diagram that did not depict the broken part. Finally after going back and forth we finally figured out what it was and he gave me a part number....and told me to call customer service back. After sitting on hold for another 20 minutes I ran out of time and patience and hung up. Several days later (today) I called back... after sitting on hold for yet another 15-20 minutes I spoke to a gentleman who didn't seem like he cared nor wanted to help. He then gave me yet another number to call to order the part....where I sat on hold AGAIN. The part will take 7-10 business days to SHIP. Not to arrive. "Ordertree" said this was because they ("ordertree") did not have the part in stock and the warranty would have to be verified by the factory... I thought I was talking to the factory.... and the part would have to be shipped from the factory to them (They are in the same area and possibly in the same building from what I could gather in Wisconsin) and then finally on to the consumer (me).
I am getting very close to dropping this thing off at a dealer and calling American Express so they can deal with it. This is nonsense. My first thought when it came to pressure washers was to go down to my local Lowes and purchase one there... instead I decided to support what I thought was a quality company with a quality product that is built in the United States. Right now I'm regretting my decision.
I will follow up after this has all shaken out.
