Zoom on the Generac GC2700W

The Generac GC2700W, 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 or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Using a 13 amp brushless motor, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3240 Cleaning Units.

The GC2700W 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.

Design & Handling

The Generac GC2700W 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 GC2700W convenience of transport.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 48.7 lbs. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 12" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Generac GC2700W's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured 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 (8700 PSI rating) can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The Generac GC2700W's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Generac GC2700W compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Generac GC2700W, reaching a PSI of up to 2700, is one of the more powerful electric units in $300-400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX4800, which reaches up to 3200 PSI.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 1.2 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to 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.
  • With 3240 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the GC2700W is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Greenworks GPW3000 and its 6000 Cleaning Units.
