Zoom on the Kärcher G3000X

In summary, the Kärcher G3000X 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
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Powered by a 196 cc engine, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 3000 PSI (around 50 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 G3000X has a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

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

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.8 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25.1 x W19 x H37 in, the Kärcher G3000X provides great mobility. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

Weighing 68 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Kärcher KXS engine and welded steel frame. But, as the G3000X does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Kärcher G3000X'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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.5 gal tank. However, since the Kärcher G3000X does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Kärcher G3000X comes with spray gun, pressure hose and wand.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3000X is CARB-compliant, and you may buy or sell it any of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G3000X's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G3000X compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher G3000X, which can reach a PSI of 3000, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other gas-powered units that cost between $300 and $400. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3400, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. 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 G3000X has a total of 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G3000X is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
