After a fair amount of shopping I purchased this unit online from Walmart.
The unit arrived at the estimated delivery time. However , it came in a plain brown box that was damaged in a couple areas. The power washer unit was loose in the box with no styrofoam or reinforcing cardboard? Also no This Side Up marking on the box.
There was oil soaked into one side of the box.Fortunately, no physical damage. Looked like the carrier had the box on the side during shipping. That had let the crankcase oil drain into the carburetor. Took a few minutes to sort all that out. Not sure who owns the packing issue but seems like it might have been a Walmart repack?
Once I got it going, the features and the capabilities have been great.
Did a couple of decks along with fences and bar-bquie parts.
All worked great.
We'll see how it holds up over time but happy so far.
The plastic that surrounds the air filter on the front left was broken in many pieces when it arrived. There was damage to the side of the box making it evident that my unit was damaged during shipping. I read other reviews that warned that the packaging used is inadequate but took my chances knowing I could always take it back to a local Walmart. I'll contact the manufacturer today to see if they will send a replacement part, otherwise I'll be taking it back to exchange for a replacement. It still runs perfectly & is a fantastic deal! Even if the next unit arrives damaged, I'll continue to return/replace until I get an unmarred unit.
Don't add all the oil that comes supplied! You'll overfill & make a mess.
Previously had a 2200 psi the 3100 psi is great and cleans a lot better and much faster. Everything about this pressure washer is excellent. Used for about 7 hours and works flawlessly. Highly recommend. Walmart had the lowest price and ordered on line and picked up at store with free shipping.
This is my second Generac Pressure Washer...had an older 1900 psi for 9 years and saw this one. What a difference...starts right up, high quality, big gas tank that runs for a long time instead of ten minutes. Runs fairly quiet and smooth. Great pressure with 5 heads. Generac is a great company and will work with you if you have any problems.
It starts on the 1st pull and does a Great job. Prior to purchase I checked out several pressure washer brands over the web and Generac had them beat in price, guarantee, quality, & reviews reported.
I'M VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE. BE CAREFUL, IT'S POWERFUL EVEN WITH THE CLEANING TIP WHICH CAN SPLIT YOUR SKIN.
works great .meets all that i expected it would
Great price and shipped to my door in 3 days for 97 cents? Easy set up, solid machine.
This unit is well put together and a little "beefy" for my residential use. Very powerful and dependable. I shopped a LOT before making this purchase. Truly the most for the money!
Opened the box and prepared the washer for first use...started on the first pull. Unit is relatively quiet for a pressure washer. Very well laid out, as compared to my previous Campbell Hausfeld washer. Good array of tips. Very powerful! No negatives so far.
*** NOTE ***
Owner's manual directs that you use a water hose no more than 50' long. I initially hooked up a 100' hose, and it seemed to starve for water a couple of times, but I didn't experience it any more after a few minutes. However, I bought a heavy duty 50' to use going forward.
This thing was worth every penny. It starts up on each pull and gets the job done quickly. Be sure to read the manual before you do anything to make sure you have a good grasp on how it operates and the do's and dont's. If you are looking for a pressure washer that can take on any challenge a home user could throw at it then buy this one.
Great power washer, put it together in ten minutes, started on second pull. Amazing power, highly recommend this.
I've only used it once so far to pressure wash my sidewalk. Some assembly was needed and instructions could have been a bit clearer, but overall no big deal. Started OK, ran OK. I guess I was hoping for a bit wider spray pattern, but had to hold the nozzle fairly close to the concrete for adequate cleaning, though this was the first time the sidewalk had been pressure washed in eight years. Unit comes with a wide variety of nozzles. So far, so good, and I would buy it again.
Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my husband. So far he loves it. He said it's powerful enough to clean most anything around the house.
The pressure washer as a whole is a very good PW with the exception of the hose that comes with it. It has goog pressure and very good cleaning ability, but with in the first hour of cleaning my deck the hose burst. The hose is of poor quality or was defective to begin with. As of today that is the only problem I have with it.
After my first couple weeks of use, I'm happy to report that the Generac 5991 performs above expectations. The color-coded nozzle heads are extremely helpful in terms of using the right head at the right time for the right job. The power of the machine is pretty spectacular. My front and backyard look brand new. I've used a variety of different machines but the 3,000 PSI really makes a difference. Encourage folks to trade up for the extra power. It sure makes getting any job done easier.
Mark, great value compare to other sellers, awesome
My old pressure washer died. We had a brief ceremony and then started looking for a new replacement. I needed a piece of equipment that had a small footprint and this filled the bill. It is more powerful and more flexible than the old one. By it's design, it is easier to move around as well. This was easy to assemble and easy to start. My wife finds it easy to start as well where she had problems with the old one. The only issue I had was filling it with oil, which was provided by Generac. The oil capacity is stated at 20oz and they provided 20oz. It still overflowed. The only thing I can figure, not knowing a lot about motors, is the engine itself must use some capactiy but since these are factory tested I would have thought that was accounted for. Other than that, I am very happy with my purchase.
Assembly required little time. The detergent hose is flimsy and requires some thought for future use. This unit is great for blowing leaves off the driveway. It sends leaves and debris 40- 50' away. needs a little backup with the hand held blower...but WOW ! all in all it's a very nice unit ...well worth the money
I bought the power washer to use for cleaning the siding on my house. The house has a gable end that is approximately 20 feet off the ground. I found that the washer did not have enough power to effectively get the water stream up to that height and was ineffective for that use. When washing something that was at your height or lower, the washer was effective.
