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, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • use 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). 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.

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 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.4 x W18.7 x H35.3 in. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the GC2700W convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 48.7 lbs, the unit is definitely 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 GC2700W 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. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
