Description

The G 3200 Q was developed to offer strong cleaning performance that is both easy to use and store. This gas pressure washer delivers 3200 PSI of TruPRESSURE™, ensuring you get the highest level of cleaning power. (source: Kärcher (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Kärcher G3200Q

In a nutshell, the Kärcher G3200Q is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • comprehensive cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and readying surfaces for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • applying detergents and cleaning agents, and rinsing off surfaces

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

Power

Fueled by a 196cc (5.5 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump can generate a forceful pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times that of a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 2.6 GPM (CETA-certified values). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 8320 Cleaning Units.

To start the Loncin G200FA engine of this gas-powered washer, users employ the familiar pull-start technique.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.8 gallon..

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3200Q boasts great mobility, courtesy of its convenient hand truck design. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly, providing stability and protection for internal components, even under demanding working conditions. The handle adds to the G3200Q convenience of transport.

At 64 lbs, this unit strikes a balance between portability and stability, making it easy for most users to handle. That weight is mainly due to the inclusion of the 196cc Loncin G200FA engine and a solid welded steel frame. Still, the G3200Q's two 12" never-flat wheels ensure easy handling and maneuverability.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G3200Q 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 removable 0.5 gal tank ensures storage for detergent within the pressure washer. Attachment of a soap nozzle prompts the pressure washer to automatically introduce and blend the detergent with the water.
  • Pressure hose: With a set of easy-to-use straps, the unit provides a convenient way to store the included 25 ft high-pressure hose when not in use, keeping it organized and readily accessible.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 4 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

The Kärcher G3200Q's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G3200Q compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Equipped to deliver up to 3200 PSI, the Kärcher G3200Q is recognized as one of the gas-powered models delivering higher-than-average water pressure, priced between $300 and $360. 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.
  • Featuring a water flow of up to 2.6 GPM, this washer sits at the upper echelon of the aforementioned price range, providing a generous volume of water. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the WEN PW3400 has the highest GPM of 2.7.
  • Featuring 8320 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) in total, the G3200Q ranks among the more efficient options in its respective price bracket. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the WEN PW3400, which can reach up to 9180 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
