Generac 6598 Review – Thing To Know About The Gas Powered Residential Pressure Washer

Generac 6598

Currently, many gas powered residential pressure washers are available in the market, one of which is the Generac 6598. This is a non-CARB compliant model, meaning it is not for sale in California. This review is written to help you decide whether this product is the right choice for you.

Cleaning Power
Powered by Generac 212cc OHV Engine, this unit offers 8370 of cleaning power (3,100 PSI 2.7 GPM). Basically, consumer gas engine pressure washers in this class are suitable for heavy duty, frequent jobs such as deck and pavement cleaning, sidewalks, and siding.

Easy-Access Hose Connections
The residential power washer features a horizontal-shaft engine. The design makes hose connections easy to reach because unlike vertical-shaft engines, the pump is well above the ground at the same level as the engine.

High-Performance Spray Gun
This 3100 psi power washer features a high performance spray gun. An integrated spray gun holder holds spray gun securely during transport and storage. Five Quick-Click™ Nozzle tips (0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and soap) are also provided for tackling any job.

30′ PVC Hose
The hose is longer than the 6595 and 6596 models. The consumer-grade gas pressure washer comes with threaded, M22 fittings. When it comes to detergent system, this unit features two 3/4 gallon (2.8 liters) tanks.

Coming with welded steel frame construction, the Generac 6598 weighs 74 lbs. The unit measures 23.3” x 16” x 40”. For easy mobility, it is equipped with two 10″ solid wheels. The foot rest stabilizes the unit during startup.

Pros and Cons
The Generac 6598 gas powered residential pressure washer has a rating of 3.8 stars out of 5 on Amazon. The rating seems to be slightly low since a number of reviewers had an issue right out of the box due to packaging problem. A few complaints have also been made about the oil dipstick opening. Reportedly, it is not easy to reach. Further, this unit does not have a low oil shutoff.

Despite some complaints, the majority of reviewers seem very happy with their purchase. It has got good performance reviews. From cleaning driveways to removing paint from concrete, it has proven a powerful unit for home owners. It also has a lot more tips than most in this price range, allowing you to tackle various projects.

The feedback for the 6598 also suggests that the unit is easy to crank with one or two pulls. Most of the users have found it to be very easy to set up and use. When it comes to design, the handle does not fold down but it will detach easily with two push buttons for easier transportation. The side hose connections are easy to access.

All in all, the Generac 6598 is a powerful residential grade power washer. If you want a unit which is pretty intuitive to use then based on the customer feedback this product is worth considering. Some reviewers had trouble with broken or missing parts. But for the majority of reviewers it works as expected.
