Zoom on the ECHO PW-3100

The ECHO PW-3100 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The ECHO PW-3100 in use

The ECHO PW-3100

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a powerful 212cc (7 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (almost 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

The Rato R225 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The ECHO PW-3100 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W22 x H43 in. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. 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 77 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212cc Rato R225 engine and its steel frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the PW-3100 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The ECHO PW-3100 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 0.92 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

The ECHO PW-3100's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the ECHO PW-3100 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The ECHO PW-3100 and its 3100 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $500 and $600. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Simpson ALH3425-S with a PSI of 3600.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Westinghouse WPX3600 has the highest GPM of 2.7.
  • The PW-3100 has 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other gas-powered devices of this price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Westinghouse WPX3600 with its 9720 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
