Zoom on the Generac GC2700W

The Generac GC2700W is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

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

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

Utilizing a 13-amp brushless motor, this machine's aluminum axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2700 PSI (around 45 times stronger than a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). 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 2100 PSI. Thus, the Generac GC2700W achieves a cleaning power of 2520 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the GC2700W initiates operation effortlessly with a straightforward 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 GC2700W provides great mobility. 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 GC2700W convenience of transport.

With a weight of 48.7 lbs, this unit is designed for ease of maneuverability, catering to a wide range of users. That weight is mainly due to the inclusion of the motor and a solid steel frame. Yet, its two 12" never-flat wheels ensure the GC2700W remains effortlessly maneuverable.

Main Features

Along with the Generac GC2700W itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: The pressure washer features a 1 gal tank for detergent storage. The detergent is automatically mixed with the water flow by the pressure washer when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a practical solution for maintaining workspace order, allowing the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (8700 PSI rating) to be neatly stored when idle.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles and the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

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.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 2700 PSI, the Generac GC2700W finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $300 and $400. 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. If your priority is efficient debris removal, consider one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range, such as the Greenworks GPW2700, boasting 2.3 GPM.
  • With a cleaning power of 2520 Cleaning Units, the GC2700W falls on the lower end compared to similarly priced electric devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Westinghouse WPX3400e, which can reach up to 3300 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
