Zoom on the Generac XC3300W

In summary, the Generac XC3300W is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • overall cleaning of hard surfaces, washing vehicles, and prepping surfaces for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • applying detergents or chemicals, and rinsing surfaces afterward

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

With an impressive 212cc engine, its aluminum triplex pump delivers a pressure of 3300 PSI (roughly 55 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Generac XC3300W's cleaning power of 9900 Cleaning Units.

Initiating the Generac G-Force engine of this gas pressure washer is achieved through a classic pull-start process.

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

Design & Handling

Featuring a wheelbarrow design, the Generac XC3300W prioritizes maneuverability and stability, ensuring smooth handling and reliable functionality in demanding cleaning applications. Guaranteeing longevity, the robust welded steel frame offers stability and protects internal components, even when subjected to demanding tasks. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

At 104 lbs, this unit's substantial weight makes it quite a challenge for users to lift and maneuver, particularly on uneven surfaces where its heft can become even more apparent. A key role in its final weight is played by its 212cc Generac G-Force engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. However, the incorporation of three 10" never-flat wheels makes navigating the XC3300W less cumbersome, even on uneven terrain.

Main Features

The Generac XC3300W's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: The XC3300W does not feature a traditional soap tank. Instead, the detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. For this purpose, it has an integrated 5 gallon bucket holder that can hold cleaning detergent or serve as an additional onboard storage for tools and accessories. This bucket holder can be folded to save storage space. Attachment of a soap nozzle prompts the pressure washer to automatically introduce and blend the detergent with the water.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (4000 PSI rating) is included with the unit. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its stainless steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook. The gun features a rotating auxiliary side handle to further improve the comfort of both left and right-handed users.
  • Nozzles: Refer to the table below for details on the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications.

  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Generac XC3300W also comes with pressure hose, soap hose, spray gun and wand.
