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

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate 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

The Kärcher G2900X's axial pump, powered by a 196cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 2900 PSI (approximately 48 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). The Kärcher G2900X thus has a cleaning power of 6960 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Kärcher KPS engine.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.4 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G2900X is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.5 x W20 x H35 in. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. 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. Its 196cc Kärcher KPS engine and welded steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The G2900X can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.

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: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.5 gal tank. The Kärcher G2900X is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • 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 allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • Emissions: The Kärcher G2900X is CARB-compliant, which means that it’s purchase and sale is legal in any 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 Kärcher G2900X and its 2900 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $300 and $400.

  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as average. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, with 2.8 GPM.
  • Amongst similarly priced gas-powered devices, the 6960 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) of the G2900X rank as low. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the WEN PW3400 and its 9180 Cleaning Units.
