Zoom on the Kärcher G3200Q

The Kärcher G3200Q is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

With a 196 cc (5.5 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM (CETA-certified values), resulting in the Kärcher G3200Q's cleaning power of 8320 Cleaning Units.

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

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

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19.7 x W22.5 x H39.4 in, the Kärcher G3200Q offers great mobility. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the G3200Q convenience of transport.

With a weight of 64 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Kärcher KXS engine and its welded steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G3200Q remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Kärcher G3200Q comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.5 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft 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 wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
