Description

Built with a 3-wheel design that saves time by moving with you around the jobsite to prevent downtime.

Zoom on the Generac XC3600W

In a nutshell, the Generac XC3600W is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • 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
  • gentle cleaning for sensitive surfaces, and wide coverage cleaning with low pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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

Power

With a powerful 212cc engine, its aluminum triplex pump delivers a pressure of 3600 PSI (roughly 60 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Generac XC3600W's cleaning power of 9360 Cleaning Units.

The Generac G-Force (opens in a new tab) engine of this gas-powered pressure washer is initiated by a classic pull-start mechanism.

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 XC3600W prioritizes maneuverability and stability, ensuring smooth handling and reliable functionality in demanding cleaning applications. Built to endure, the welded steel frame ensures the assembly's longevity by providing stability and safeguarding internal components under all working conditions. 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. Its 212cc Generac G-Force engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, the incorporation of three 10" never-flat wheels makes navigating the XC3600W less cumbersome, even on uneven terrain.

Main Features

The Generac XC3600W comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: The XC3600W 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. Connection of a soap nozzle triggers the pressure washer to automatically incorporate the detergent into the water stream.
  • 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its stainless steel wand. A rotating auxiliary side handle further improves both left-handed and right-handed users' comfort.
  • Nozzles: Refer to the table below for details on the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications.

Other Features

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation), a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a low oil protection.
  • Accessories: Included with the Generac XC3600W 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 soap hose, pressure hose, wand and spray gun.

  • Featuring 9360 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) in total, the XC3600W lands within the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units.
