Zoom on the Generac 6882

In summary, the Generac 6882 is a heavy duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • 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

With a 196 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2900 PSI (roughly 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Generac 6882's cleaning power of 6960 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Generac engine.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.8 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

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

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 57 lbs. Its 196 cc Generac engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the 6882 has a set of two 10" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Generac 6882 in use

The Generac 6882

The Generac 6882 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 0.5 gal tank. However, since the Generac 6882 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The 30 ft ⌀1/5" high-pressure hose (3400 PSI rating), which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included PowerDial spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

Some of the included accessories

  • Pressure control: Water pressure can be manually changed, using the adjustable throttle of the trigger gun.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Generac 6882 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, spray gun, pressure hose, Soap Blaster nozzle, funnel and oil.
  • Emissions: The Generac 6882 is CARB-compliant, which means that it’s purchase and sale is legal in any of the 50 states, including California.

The Generac 6882's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Generac 6882 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Generac 6882 with its 2900 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 that can reach up to 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer, which can reach 2.4, can be considered in the average. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
  • With the 6882's 6960 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to gas-powered units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Generac 6882 vs Generac 7019.

    Can’t get replacement parts

    + PROS: While it worked it worked great but if you can't get replacement parts than useless
    - CONS: I can't find replacement parts for the washers. I've looked on line and all I get is discontinued. For this reason I won't buy a Generac anything
