Description

The G 2900 E portable gas pressure washer delivers 2900 PSI of TruPressure®, ensuring you get the highest level of cleaning power. It is powered by a performance driven Karcher KPS 196cc engine with auto choke for easy starting – just pull the trigger and clean. (source: Kärcher (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Kärcher G2900E

In summary, the Kärcher G2900E is a heavy duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Using a 196cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2900 PSI (roughly 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7540 Cleaning Units.

The Loncin LC1P70F-3 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G2900E is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.9 x W15.2 x H35.4 in. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the G2900E convenience of transport.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 51.8 lbs. Its 196cc Loncin LC1P70F-3 engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Since the G2900E has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G2900E 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. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • 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 G2900E also comes with garden hose adapter, soap hose, spray gun, wand and pressure hose.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G2900E is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant and so you cannot buy it nor sell it in California.

The Kärcher G2900E's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G2900E compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Kärcher G2900E, with a max water pressure of 2900 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the gas-powered products in the $195-255 price range. As for the device with the most powerful water stream, in this price range, one of the top products is the Ryobi RY803023 with 3100 PSI.
  • The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 2.6 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the highest values found in the above-mentioned price range.
  • Reaching up to 7540 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the G2900E is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the PowerStroke PS80544B and its 7750 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7500 and 8000 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G2900E is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
