Zoom on the Generac GC2300W

The Generac GC2300W, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

With a 13 amp brushless motor, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). PSI is the maximum value and can usually be reached only at initial discharge. Under typical load, the unit's rated pressure is 1700 PSI, resulting in the Generac GC2300W's cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the GC2300W is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.4 x W18.7 x H35.3 in, the Generac GC2300W offers great mobility. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the GC2300W convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 46.3 lbs, it is very easily carried around. On top of its light weight, the transportability and ease of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 12" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Generac GC2300W comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 1 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (6380 PSI rating), which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Generac GC2300W also comes with nozzle cleaner, power cord, spray gun, pressure hose and wand.

The Generac GC2300W's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Generac GC2300W compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Generac GC2300W, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2300, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $300 to $400 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400e that can reach up to 3400 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Greenworks GPW2200 has the highest GPM of 2.3.
  • Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2040 Cleaning Units of the GC2300W rank as low. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Westinghouse WPX3400e and its 3300 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Generac GC2300W is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
