Description

The G3200X 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. The G3200X is powered by the performance driven Karcher KXS 196 cc engine which is backed by a 3 year engine and 2 year pump warranty. (source: Kärcher (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Kärcher G3200X

The Kärcher G3200X, a heavy duty, commercial 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
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

With a 196 cc engine, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Kärcher G3200X's cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.

The Kärcher KXS engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3200X is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25 x W19 x H37 in. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of 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 Kärcher KXS engine and welded steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the G3200X remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Kärcher G3200X's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.5 gal tank. It must be noted that the Kärcher G3200X doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • 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: 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.

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Kärcher G3200X are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, spray gun and pressure hose.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3200X is CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G3200X's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G3200X compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With 3200 PSI, the Karcher G3200X ranks as one that can reach an above average pressure, amongst the gas-powered products that cost between $300 and $400. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Stanley SXPW3425 with a PSI of 3400.
  • 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 Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
  • The G3200X, which reaches up to 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) is one of the more efficient, in comparison to its similarly priced counterparts. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Westinghouse WPX3400, which can reach up to 8840 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 7500 and 8000 Cleaning Units, the Karcher G3200X 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.
