Zoom on the Champion 100580

The Champion 100580 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying 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 100580 in use

The Champion 100580

With the brand new Honda GCV200 (opens in a new tab) engine, which is specially built for pressure washers, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Champion 100580's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

The 201 cc engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.24 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26.1 x W17.4 x H31.8 in, the Champion 100580 provides great mobility. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the 100580 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Weighing 51.6 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 201 cc Honda GCV200 engine and its steel frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the 100580 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The Champion 100580 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The Champion 100580 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

The Champion 100580's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Champion 100580 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

Note: Even though we couldn’t list its price on this page, our research indicates that some retailers sell this unit around $800.

  • The Champion 100580 and its 3200 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $775 and $900. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Simpson PS60843 with 4400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Simpson PS60843, which can reach up to 4 GPM.
  • The 100580 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 8000 CU (PSI x GPM). If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Simpson PS60843 and its 17600 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 8000 and 8500 Cleaning Units, the Champion 100580 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
