Zoom on the Kärcher G2700R

The Kärcher G2700R, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Using a 196 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 6480 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Kärcher KPS engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.4 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G2700R offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20 x W16 x H52 in. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the G2700R convenience of transport.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 60 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Kärcher KPS engine and welded steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G2700R remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Kärcher G2700R comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. As the Kärcher G2700R doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
