Zoom on the Champion 100579

In summary, the Champion 100579 is a heavy duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Champion 100579 in use

The Champion 100579

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 160 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (almost 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 6900 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GCV160 engine.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.9 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26.1 x W17.4 x H31.8 in, the Champion 100579 provides great mobility. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 100579 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 51.4 lbs. Its 160 cc Honda GCV160 engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the 100579 has a set of two 12" solid wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

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: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The Champion 100579 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 12:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀9/32" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
