Description

Zoom on the Generac 8902

The Generac 8902, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • focused spot cleaning on hard, unpainted surfaces, accessing high spots, and efficiently eliminating stubborn stains
  • mild cleaning for delicate surfaces, and low-pressure cleaning for broader areas
  • using cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces to remove residue

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

Power

The Generac 8902 in use

The Generac 8902

Powered by a 196cc engine, its brass axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). With these values combined, the Generac 8902 boasts a cleaning power of 8640 Cleaning Units.

To initiate the Generac engine of this gas-powered pressure washer, a traditional pull-start mechanism is employed.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.8 gallon..

Design & Handling

The Generac 8902 boasts great mobility, courtesy of its convenient hand truck design. The sturdy steel frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the 8902 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

This unit, weighing 62 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 196cc Generac engine and a sturdy steel frame. However, with its two 10" never-flat wheels, the 8902 is easy to maneuver.

Main Features

Along with the Generac 8902 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. As the Generac 8902 doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: When not in use, the unit allows for tidy storage of the included 30 ft ⌀1/5" high-pressure hose (3400 PSI rating) using a set of convenient hooks, ensuring convenient organization.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included PowerDial spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: Review the table below to learn about the 5 included nozzles and the surfaces they're recommended for.
