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

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of 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 196 cc (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 (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Kärcher G3000XK thus has a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler RH265 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by 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. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 64 lbs. Its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G3000XK remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

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: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.5 gal tank. The Kärcher G3000XK 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. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its zinc-coated wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

Other Features

  • 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 G3000XK comes with spray gun, wand and pressure hose.
  • 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.

  • The Karcher G3000XK, with a maximum pressure output of 3000 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $300 to $400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Stanley SXPW3425, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer, which can reach 2.4, can be considered in the average. 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.
  • In comparison to other gas-powered units of similar price, the 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the G3000XK are average. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Briggs & Stratton 20505, which can reach up to 9520 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

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 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.
