Zoom on the Champion 100778

The Champion 100778 is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • 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 100778 in use

The Champion 100778

The Champion 100778's axial cam pump, powered by a 196 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (approximately 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.1 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Champion 100778 thus has a cleaning power of 5880 Cleaning Units.

The Champion engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Champion 100778 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 67.2 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Champion engine and steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" solid wheels, the 100778 remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Champion 100778 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 1 gal tank. The Champion 100778 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 12:1 ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀5/8" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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 following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • Accessories: The Champion 100778 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get wand, pressure hose, soap hose, funnel, oil and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Champion 100778 is NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

The Champion 100778's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Champion 100778 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Champion 100778 and its 2800 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $275 and $400. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3400, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2.1 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 Predator 3100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
  • The 100778 has 5880 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 5200 and 6300 Cleaning Units, the Champion 100778 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.
