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 tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Using a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 3000 PSI (roughly 50 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7200 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler RH265 engine.

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.

Weighing 64 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame. 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 storage is ensured by 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 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 following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • 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.

  • With its 3000 PSI max pressure output, the Karcher G3000XK is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $300-400 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as 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 Lifan LFQ3370, that can deliver up to 3 GPM.
  • The 7200 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the G3000XK sit at an average, in reference to other gas-powered units of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370 with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
