Power

The Champion 100786 in use

The Champion 100786

With a powerful 224 cc engine, its brass triplex pump delivers a pressure of 3500 PSI (roughly 58 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 100786's cleaning power of 8750 Cleaning Units.

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

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the Champion 100786 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

With a weight of 87 lbs, the model is not lightweight. Therefore, it may be challenging to manually carry it around and transport it. A key role in its final weight is played by its 224 cc Champion engine, the triplex pump and steel frame. However, the unit’s two 10" solid wheels are crucial to its maneuvrability, since they provide a smooth method of manipulation on the job.

Main Features

Along with the Champion 100786 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 1 gal tank. The Champion 100786 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 12:1 ratio. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of easy-to-use straps, the included 50 ft ⌀5/8" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently 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.
