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, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless 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

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). Combined, these values mean that the Generac GC2300W has a cleaning power of 2760 Cleaning Units.

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

Design & Handling

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

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

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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (6380 PSI rating) can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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 following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • Onboard storage: With the Generac GC2300W's handy storage area, you’ll always have all the necessary nozzles and accessories at hand and thus, you’ll be fully prepared for any job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Generac GC2300W are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, spray gun, power cord, nozzle cleaner and pressure hose.

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.

  • Reaching a 2300 PSI max pressure output, the Generac GC2300W has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $240 to $300 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 with a PSI of 3000.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Greenworks GPW2700 has the highest GPM of 2.3.
  • With 2760 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the GC2300W is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Greenworks GPW2700, which can reach up to 6210 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the Generac GC2300W is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
