Zoom on the ECHO PW-3100

In summary, the ECHO PW-3100 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which provides:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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 ECHO PW-3100 in use

The ECHO PW-3100

Powered by a powerful 212cc (7 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3100 PSI (around 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). With these values combined, the ECHO PW-3100 boasts a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

Initiating the Rato R225 engine of this gas pressure washer is achieved through a classic pull-start process.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.95 gallon..

Design & Handling

The ECHO PW-3100's mobility is greatly enhanced by its hand truck design. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly, providing stability and protection for internal components, even under demanding working conditions. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

At 77 lbs, this unit's substantial weight makes it quite a challenge for users to lift and maneuver, particularly on uneven surfaces where its heft can become even more apparent. A key role in its final weight is played by its 212cc Rato R225 engine and steel frame. Nevertheless, with its two 12" never-flat wheels, users can manage the PW-3100 with less difficulty, even over uneven terrain.

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: Detergent storage is facilitated by the inclusion of a 0.92 gal tank. When a soap nozzle is connected, the pressure washer takes the initiative to mix the detergent with the water flow automatically.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit provides a convenient way to store the included 25 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose when not in use, keeping it organized and readily accessible.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: Review the table below to learn about the 4 included nozzles and the surfaces they're recommended 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, which can achieve a PSI of up to 3100, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers in the $500 to $600 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3600 with 3600 PSI.
  • 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. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Westinghouse WPX3600, that can deliver up to 2.7 GPM.
  • The PW-3100's Cleaning Units, 7750 CU (PSI X GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to gas-powered devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Westinghouse WPX3600 and its 9720 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
