This gas pressure washer delivers 3200 PSI of TruPRESSURE™, ensuring you get the highest level of cleaning power.

Zoom on the Kärcher G3200X

The Kärcher G3200X is a heavy duty, commercial 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 fragile 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 G3200X's axial pump, powered by a 196 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (approximately 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Kärcher G3200X thus has a 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.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.8 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3200X offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25 x W19 x H37 in. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 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 enables you to easily store 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.

  • 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 pressure hose, wand and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3200X is CARB-compliant. Thus, it can be bought and sold in any 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.

  • Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 3200 PSI, the Karcher G3200X is one of the gas-powered products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $300 to $400 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 that can reach 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 rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
  • The 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the G3200X result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced gas-powered units. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units.

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 cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
