Zoom on the Generac GC2700W

In a nutshell, the Generac GC2700W is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • applying 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

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). PSI is the maximum value and can usually be reached only at initial discharge. Under typical load, the unit's rated pressure is 2100 PSI. Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 2520 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Generac GC2700W's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the GC2700W convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 48.7 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 12" never-flat wheels.

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: Detergent is stored in a 1 gal tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (8700 PSI rating) is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently 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.

  • Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 2700 PSI, the Generac GC2700W is one of the electric products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $300 to $400 price range.

  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Greenworks GPW2700, with 2.3 GPM.
  • The 2520 Cleaning Units, of the GC2700W sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price. 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 3300 Cleaning Units.
