Power

The Champion 100579 in use

The Champion 100579

Using a 160cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (roughly 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 6900 Cleaning Units.

Initiating the Honda GCV160 engine of this gas pressure washer is achieved through a classic pull-start process.

The pressure washer's tank has a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon for storing gasoline..

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Champion 100579 provides excellent maneuverability. The durable steel frame of the assembly ensures its longevity, providing stability and shielding internal components from damage, even in tough conditions. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 100579 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

This unit, weighing 51.4 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. Its 160cc Honda GCV160 engine and steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Despite this, the 100579's two 12" solid wheels ensure effortless maneuverability.

Main Features

The Champion 100579's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. Utilizing an automatic soap dilution mechanism, the Champion 100579 accurately mixes detergent to the defined ratio of 12:1, enhancing cleaning efficiency. Once a soap nozzle is connected, the pressure washer automatically blends the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes equipped with an included 25 ft ⌀9/32" high-pressure hose, which can be neatly stored on the unit when idle, thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps, ensuring easy access and organization.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table provides information on the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surface uses.
