Description

The G2700R portable gas pressure washer delivers 2700 PSI of TruPressure®, ensuring you get the highest level of cleaning power. It is powered by a performance driven Karcher KPS 196 cc engine with auto choke for easy starting – just pull the trigger and clean. Equipped with oversized 12" wheels, onboard accessory storage, four spray nozzles and easy-access hose connections, this pressure washer was designed with the homeowner in mind.

Zoom on the Kärcher G2700R

In a nutshell, the Kärcher G2700R is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Kärcher G2700R's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by a 196 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 2700 PSI (approximately 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). The Kärcher G2700R thus has a cleaning power of 6480 Cleaning Units.

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

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.4 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20 x W16 x H52 in, the Kärcher G2700R offers great mobility. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the G2700R convenience of transport.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 60 lbs. Its 196 cc Kärcher KPS engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. But, as the G2700R does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G2700R itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail 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. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: The Kärcher G2700R features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Kärcher G2700R also comes with pressure hose, spray gun, wand and soap hose.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G2700R is CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G2700R's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G2700R compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher G2700R, a device which can produce up to 2700 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Simpson CM61083, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as average. 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 G2700R ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 6480 CU (PSI x GPM). When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Predator 3100 and its 8680 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G2700R 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.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Good range of nozzles included
  • Onboard storage
  • CARB-compliant
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent GPM for the price
WEAKNESSES:
  • On the expensive side
  • No soap tank
  • No detergent dilution mechanism
  • Low PSI for the price
