The Generac 5997 provides 4,000 PSI of power and 4.0 gallons per minute (GPM) for a cleaning power rating of 16000. The Generac 5997 power washer. It's powered by a Generac overhead valve (OHV) horizontal-shaft engine, the largest available for its respective pressure rating. Generac OHV engines come standard with low-oil shutdown to protect and prolong the life of the engine. Both the engine and pump are perfectly balanced over the axle and wheels for almost effortless maneuverability, regardless of terrain.

Short for "pounds per square inch," PSI is a measure of the water pressure coming out of the power washer. A typical garden hose dispenses water at about 30-40 PSI, and a coin-operated car wash provides about 700 PSI. A power washer, by contrast, typically dispenses water at several thousand PSI. Another important factor in power washers is GPM, which stands for "gallons per minute" and describes how much water is flowing through the pressure washer. Together, they provide your power washer's cleaning power. Multiply PSI (which gives you the power to lift dirt and grime) by GPM (which provides the necessary quantity of water to wash it away) to get the cleaning power rating. The higher the number, the greater the cleaning power. Here are some application examples with how much cleaning power (PSI and GPM) you'll need to get the job done.
