Comet Pump Pressure Washer Pump - 2.5 GPM, 2700 PSI, 5 HP to 6.5 HP Required, Model# BXD2530G
So far so good!
Seems to be very solidly built, and was a direct bolt-on to my Generac pressure washer. Had to buy an adapter for the hose to connect to the pump but that was no biggie at all.
One note on the installation: Be very careful when deciding to use either the original bolts from the original pump, or the supplied bolts. The supplied bolts with the pump were a different thread pattern than the originals, which is why it is important to 1) compare threads before installing, and 2) hand start the bolts before using any tools.
I did not to remove any "tabs" on the pump to get it to sit flush with the motor.
Would definitely recommend thus far!

This pump is a great replacement for the OEM pump on the Ridgid 80746 pressure washer.
Easy to install, and leaps and bounds better than the pump that originally came with the pressure washer.
Mine has been going strong for over 4 years, not a problem at all.
Just make sure you have oil at the appropriate level through the site glass, and your good to go. CAT pump oil works great as it is a green color and easy to see the level in the pump.
Pump saver is also a must when it is time to store in colder climates, prevents corrosion and stuck valves.
Buy with confidence, this is a great pump!

Nice pump ..... but
I really like the pump, it works well and I feel was reasonably priced. The only thing was I had to cut off 4 little tabs on the mounting side to get it to pull up to the engine tight. Talked to Northern first and the guy said that's what most people do and was ok to do it.

Great replacement. Quick and easy installation. Comes with everything you need including oil. Installed in Less than 5 mins on my 5hp Honda. Power washer now works better than when new.

Comet Pump Pressure Washer Pump - 2.5 GPM, 2700 PS
Easy installation and much improved performance over the OEM pump supplied with my Generac pressure washer---which, incidentally, I was very pleased with until it died after approx 10 years of homeowner use. A little pricey but the sting subsided when I started it up and experienced the increased power. Also suffer few pressure "lags" as the pump/water supply catch up as I did with the original pump.

Comet Pump - Great Improvement
Bought this pump to replace General Pump (2.9gpm/2300psi) on Generac 6HP pressure washer. The comet unit (2.5gpm/2700psi) runs smoother, cooler and cleans better. It does not load the motor as much at high pressure and seems to have reduced vibration. Pump response is much better than the original unit. Cleaned my concrete driveway in approximately 1/2 the time it took with the old unit. Flow seems to be equivalent to old pump, but pressure is much improved. Pressure washer runs better than when new. Great Upgrade! (Installation took approximately 30 minutes - could have been quicker, but old pump was frozen to shaft.)

Great Replacement Pump
I bought this at Northern Tools in Marietta GA to replace the failed original pump on my Generac pressurer washer. Installation was easy and performance is much better than the original pump. I chose this unit based on the good reviews and it was a good choice.
