Description

The G2900X was developed to offer strong cleaning performance that is both easy to use and store. This gas pressure washer delivers 2900 PSI of TruPRESSURE™, ensuring you get the highest level of cleaning power. The G2900X is powered by the performance driven Karcher KPS 196 cc engine with auto choke for easy starting; just pull and clean.

Zoom on the Kärcher G2900X

The Kärcher G2900X is a heavy duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • broad cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface preparation for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • using cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces to remove residue

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

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 196cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2900 PSI (almost 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 6960 Cleaning Units.

To start the Kärcher KPS engine of this gas-powered washer, users employ the familiar pull-start technique.

The pressure washer's tank has a maximum capacity of 0.4 gallon for storing gasoline..

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G2900X's mobility is greatly enhanced by its hand truck design. Built to endure, the welded steel frame ensures the assembly's longevity by providing stability and safeguarding internal components under all working conditions. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

This unit, weighing 63 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 196cc Kärcher KPS engine and a sturdy welded steel frame. However, with its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G2900X is easy to maneuver.

Main Features

The Kärcher G2900X's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.5 gal tank. Due to the absence of a soap dilution feature, users of the Kärcher G2900X must ensure detergent is correctly diluted prior to use. Attachment of a soap nozzle prompts the pressure washer to automatically introduce and blend the detergent with the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when not in use, utilizing a set of easy-to-use straps for convenient organization.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Refer to the table below for details on the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications.

  • The Kärcher G2900X, a device which can produce up to 2900 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If you're seeking the strongest water stream, look no further than the Westinghouse WPX3400, which delivers an impressive 3400 PSI.
  • With a water flow rate of 2.4 GPM, this washer is average in water volume compared to others in the aforementioned price range. If your priority is efficient debris removal, consider one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range, such as the Lifan LFQ3370, boasting 3 GPM.
  • With 6960 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the G2900X is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
