Description

The G3000XK was developed to offer strong cleaning performance that is both easy to use and store. Powered by the reliable KOHLER® RH 265 with Easy-Pull™ ergonomic handle making starting consistently easy. It was designed with the user in mind with features like one-half gallon removable detgent tank, four spray nozzles, oversized 12" wheels, onboard accessory storage, and easy access to all hose connections.

Zoom on the Kärcher G3000XK

The Kärcher G3000XK, a heavy duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Kärcher G3000XK's axial pump, powered by a 196cc (6.5 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (approximately 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). The Kärcher G3000XK thus has a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

The Kohler RH265 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.5 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3000XK is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25.1 x W19 x H37 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 64 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 196cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. But, as the G3000XK does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G3000XK 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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.5 gal tank. As the Kärcher G3000XK 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: Using a set of easy-to-use straps, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • 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 G3000XK is CARB-compliant. Thus, it can be bought and sold in any of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G3000XK's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G3000XK compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 3000 PSI max pressure output, the Kärcher G3000XK has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $300 to $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.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. 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 Lifan LFQ3370, with 3 GPM.
  • The G3000XK ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 7200 CU (PSI X GPM). 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.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G3000XK 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.
