Thread Details

Sears and Kmart are both offering the Generac OneWash pressure washer on sale for $399.99 (exp 05/04) and coupon code "SPRING20" (exp 04/27) can be applied for another $20 off making it $379.99. Both stores are offering free shipping and SYWR members can get free 2-day shipping as usual.

I've been watching this for a while and have never seen it below $449.99 at Sears/Kmart or Amazon. There aren't a lot of reviews on this model but it appears to be very similar to the 6024 model in terms of performance but this model includes the convenient pressure adjustments depending on the type of job being performed.

You can also get 10% CB using Shop Discover or 5% for using a Sears card.

I was a trip to the post office away from getting the Generac 6022 from Lowe's with a movers coupon. The 6022 is good for 2700psi, and is on sale right now for $270, or ~$250 out the door after coupon, taxes, and Chase rewards.

This one ran me $400, but it is still one of the best deals I have seen for a new 3000PSI pressure washer. I like the idea of the adjust-ability, too. Thanks, OP!

I've settled on the AR Blue Clean AR383. Based on the reviews I've read, Karcher has better customer service, but I see a lot more complaints of modern Karchers breaking. I'd rather have poor customer service that I never have to use. Smilie

I've got a twenty year old Karcher that still works, but I don't think a new Karcher would be as good as this old one.

I hate to thread crap but please buy one with a commercial grade pump such as cat and general and an engine where you can adjust the throttle. Yes it will cost you more but you will save in the long run. Those cheap pumps break with very little use and usually arent repairable. Never run the pump without water. For instance a cat pump can have 500 hr oil changes and not need a rebuild for 1500+ hrs. A quality one will last a homeowner a lifetime.

3gpm @ 3000psi is plenty. I have a 4gpm @4000 psi cat pump and only run it at 3000 psi for several years with seven rental properties.

Do you have one you'd recommend? I was looking at a different one on Amazon with a Honda Motor, but not sure from your comment if that is decent.

I agree that the commercial triplex pumps are more durable, but it may not be worth the price difference for the average homeowner. The pressure washers I have seen with CAT pumps are at least $700. Generac washers seem to be pretty well regarded for general residential use. I would definitely agree if someone is going to be using it commercially or even quasi-commercially i.e. having rental properties to maintain.

As far as running the pump without water, that is one of the benefits of Generac's because they have a low-water and low-oil automatic shutoff (and will not allow you to turn on the pump without adequate water flow).

Well, I had a nice long review of this product and the login page sent it to the black hole.

Long story short...I can't recommend it.

2 of the 3 reviews aren't very good on Sears.

This is a good buy for the specs.

I had a manifold crack because there was some water left in it over a winter. Ran me $65 for the small part. Unit is probably 10yrs old though, and still runs great. Simple Craftsman with Briggs engine, about 2800psi. Plenty for homeowners.

I've got the inflatable tires, which is a real PITA. I see most are going to hard tires now. Smart.

Those two poor reviews are individuals that do not seem to know how to use a pressure washer, or cannot keep it running. Check other sources and there are plenty of solid reviews.

The one you link has an axial pump like the OP's. After reading (quite a bit) I decided to spend $120 more and buy this one:

Though (likely) not a CAT or General, it IS a triplex pump and should last quite some time. Apparently this one is the same as the Dewalt DXPW3228 that sells for ~ $700.

I agree with stonny9 in that I've wasted much $$ over the years with the 'throwaways' (not that this actually IS one), and decided to see how a quasi-commercial model works out.

HTH, and wish me luck Wink
