Power

The Generac 6712 in use

The Generac 6712

Powered by an impressive 302cc engine, its triplex pump can deliver a pressure of 3800 PSI (around 63 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). With these values combined, the Generac 6712 boasts a cleaning power of 12160 Cleaning Units.

To start the Generac engine of this gas-powered washer, users employ the familiar pull-start technique.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.7 gallon.

Design & Handling

Characterized by its wheelbarrow layout, the Generac 6712 provides improved mobility and stability, facilitating easy movement and steadfast operation for effective cleaning results. Built to endure, the steel frame ensures the assembly's longevity by providing stability and safeguarding internal components under all working conditions. The handle adds to the 6712 convenience of transport.

With its weight clocking in at 134 lbs, this unit's heftiness can't be ignored, presenting significant difficulties for users who need to lift and transport it, especially over uneven terrain. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 302cc Generac engine, the triplex pump and steel frame. Despite this, the presence of two 10" pneumatic wheels reduces the complexity of moving the 6712, even on rugged surfaces.

Main Features

Along with the Generac 6712 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Though lacking a dedicated soap tank, the device ensures detergent supply via a siphon hose. Because the Generac 6712 lacks a soap dilution function, it's important to dilute detergent appropriately before using the pressure washer. The detergent is automatically mixed with the water flow by the pressure washer when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 50 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (4000 PSI rating) can be neatly stored on the unit when not in use, utilizing a set of convenient hooks for convenient organization.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. The gun features a rotating auxiliary side handle to further improve the comfort of both left and right-handed users.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

  • Reaching a 3800 PSI max pressure output, the Generac 6712 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $825 to $900 price range. Prioritizing the highest water stream power? Check out the Predator 4400—a top contender in this price range, delivering up to 4400 PSI.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 3.2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. When it comes to efficiently rinsing away debris, one standout option within this price range is the Predator 4400, delivering an impressive 4.2 GPM.
