Zoom on the Generac 7132

In a nutshell, the Generac 7132 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Generac 7132 in use

The Generac 7132

With a 173 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Generac 7132's cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

With a dual start mechanism, the Generac engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability: you can either choose the practical electric start, or the traditional pull-start mechanism. A 12V Lithium-ion battery, which is included in the package, is required for the electric start.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.3 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D24.4 x W19 x H35.5 in, the Generac 7132 offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 7132 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 58.1 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 173 cc Generac engine and its welded steel frame. However, the two 10" never-flat wheels allow the 7132 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

Along with the Generac 7132 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 0.5 gal tank. As the Generac 7132 doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (3100 PSI rating) is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included PowerDial spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The Generac 7132's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Generac 7132 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 3100 PSI max pressure output, the Generac 7132 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $300 to $400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Stanley SXPW3425, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, that can deliver up to 3 GPM.
  • As the 7132 has a total of 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370 with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

Price comparison
