Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Powered by a 13 amp brushless motor, its aluminum axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2300 PSI (around 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. Combined, these values mean that the Generac GC2300W has a cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

The GC2300W is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

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

With a weight of only 46.3 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. A set of two 12" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
