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:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Powered by a 196 cc engine, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2900 PSI (around 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Kärcher G2900X has a cleaning power of 6960 Cleaning Units.

The Kärcher KPS engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

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

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G2900X offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.5 x W20 x H35 in. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 63 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Kärcher KPS engine and its welded steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G2900X remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Kärcher G2900X comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.5 gal tank. As the Kärcher G2900X doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual and documentation to get you promptly started, the Kärcher G2900X comes with spray gun, wand and pressure hose.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G2900X is CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G2900X's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G2900X compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher G2900X with its 2900 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. As for the device with the most powerful water stream, in this price range, one of the top products is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.4 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 Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
  • As the G2900X has a total of 6960 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. 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 Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6500 and 7000 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G2900X 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.
