Zoom on the Generac GC2300W

In a nutshell, the Generac GC2300W is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • applying detergents and cleaning agents, and rinsing off surfaces

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

Its aluminum axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13-amp brushless motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (almost 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. Although the provided PSI represents the maximum achievable value, it's typically only reached at initial discharge. Under normal operating conditions, the unit has a rated pressure of 1700 PSI. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

The GC2300W, an electric washer, swiftly activates via a simple ON/OFF switch, ensuring user-friendly startup. 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, the Generac GC2300W provides excellent maneuverability. The durable steel frame of the assembly ensures its longevity, providing stability and shielding internal components from damage, even in tough conditions. The handle adds to the GC2300W convenience of transport.

At 46.3 lbs, this unit strikes a balance between portability and stability, making it easy for most users to handle. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the motor and a sturdy steel frame. Nevertheless, the GC2300W's two 12" never-flat wheels ensure it remains easy to maneuver.

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. Connection of a soap nozzle triggers the pressure washer to automatically incorporate the detergent into the water stream.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (6380 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table provides information on the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surface uses.

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

  • The Generac GC2300W with its 2300 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other electric pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If you're seeking the strongest water stream, look no further than the Westinghouse WPX3400e, which delivers an impressive 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale.
