Pros & Cons
The Generac 5989/6022 is a 2700 PSI gas powered consumer pressure washer with 2.3 gallons per minute of water flow designed to power wash your deck, driveway, patio furniture and more. The Generac 6022 features a powerful 196cc Over Head Valve engine with low oil shutdown for better engine life. It is easy to assemble, setup and use. It is also easy to maneuver and the welded frame of this gas powered pressure washer is designed for durability, with a built-in step for easy starting and an integrated gun holster.
This machine is very well designed with many ergonomic features like easily accessible high-performance axial cam pump and the easy to pull trigger to reduce fatigue. The pump of this gas powered pressure washer is located well above the ground, eliminating the need to kneel down to make hose connections. Generac pressure washer includes 4 Quick-Click nozzle tips (0 degree Blast, 25 degree Clean, 40 degree Wash and Soap) and a 25' hose. Its compact design is amazingly easy to maneuver and store, with the engine and pump perfectly balanced above the axle.
However, few users are not happy with this pressure washer since either they received a defective unit or the unit broke down after some usage. Some user reviews mention that the hose is not of very good quality and it may leak. Many users bought a better replacement hose. It also needs a better system to wind up the hose. A few buyers did not have good experience with manufacturer's customer service.
Overall, the Generac 5989/6022, 2,700 PSI Gas Powered Consumer Pressure Washer is a powerful, well performing pressure washer for residential use. It is easy to setup and use for everyday use.
