  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Generac 6882 in use

The Generac 6882

The Generac 6882's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by a 196 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 2900 PSI (approximately 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Generac 6882 thus has a cleaning power of 6960 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Generac engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Generac 6882 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D24.2 x W18.9 x H35.5 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 6882 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Weighing 57 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Generac engine and its steel frame. But, as the 6882 does have a set of two 10" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Generac 6882 in use

The Generac 6882

Along with the Generac 6882 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 0.5 gal tank. It must be noted that the Generac 6882 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 30 ft ⌀1/5" high-pressure hose (3400 PSI rating) is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the PowerDial spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
