Need Help With Your Dirty Work? Generac's New Innovative Pressure Washer Puts All the Power at Your Fingertips

3100 PSI Power Washer Allows Control of Application Settings via Handheld Spray Gun

WAUKESHA, WI--(Marketwired - February 24, 2016) - Whether it's a need to clean cars, decks, patio furniture or driveways, homeowners now have access to an all-new, affordable power washer courtesy of Generac Power Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of engine-powered products. The 3100 PSI unit, in particular, features Generac's PowerDial™ technology, allowing users to adjust water pressure settings with the spray gun.

Known for its commitment to innovative engineering, Generac designed the power washer with user needs in mind. Most impressively, the spray gun can easily be adjusted between four application settings to immediately arrive at the ideal pressure setting for each cleaning task. Also to the benefit of users, Generac is the only power washer manufacturer to integrate an inverted, easy-pull trigger on the spray gun, which significantly reduces fatigue during prolonged use.

Another important feature is the integration of a horizontal-shaft engine which positions the pump well above the ground and within easy reach. As a result of improved access to hose connections, users won't even have to kneel down to attach hoses, which will be a welcome relief.

"Consumer feedback sparks many of our product improvements," said Randy Sandlin, vice president of product development for Generac Power Systems. "We've not only designed a unit that's versatile and easy-to-use, but it has the added benefit of being engineered and built in the U.S.*, and is representative of the quality consumers have come to expect from Generac."

Generac tests every power washer unit before leaving the production line. This 100 percent end-of-line testing checks each unit for pressure, flow and engine RPM.

Ideal for a full range of tasks, including heavy-duty chores, the 3100 PSI model with the innovative PowerDial™ is one of three units in Generac's new pressure washer line. The new line also includes a 2500 PSI unit ideal for light-duty tasks such as cleaning patio furniture, as well as a 2800 PSI unit for medium-duty chores like cleaning decks and home siding.

Other notable features include:

  • Generac overhead valve (OHV) CARB compliant engine, approved for sale in California
  • 4 quick-change nozzle tips (0°, 25 °, 40 °, soap)
  • 25-foot non-marring high pressure hose to avoid kinks and damage
  • 1/2 gallon on-board detergent tank (2800 and 3100 PSI units only)
  • Integrated PowerDial™ technology (3100 PSI unit only)
  • Never-flat, oversized wheels for easy maneuverability over rugged terrain and on stairs
  • Engineered and built in the USA using domestic and foreign parts
