Zoom on the Kärcher G3200XK

The Kärcher G3200XK is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

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

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

Power

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 196 cc (6.5 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (almost 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.

The Kohler RH265 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.5 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D25.1 x W19 x H37 in, the Kärcher G3200XK offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 64 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 196 cc Kohler RH265 engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the G3200XK has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G3200XK 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 safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.5 gal tank. The Kärcher G3200XK 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. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the VersaGRIP spray gun and its zinc-coated wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

VersaGRIP Gun

The VersaGRIP trigger gun has dual action triggers, which allow you to effectively use it at any angle. A shoulder stock lets you utilize your very own body as an anchor, creates a secure holding position and reduces any strain exerted on your fingers, hand and wrists during the cleaning. The VersaGRIP is compatible with many brands and models of gas pressure washers, as it can be easily attached to industry-standard standardized high pressure hoses and spray wands.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: With the Kärcher G3200XK's handy storage area, you’ll always have all the necessary nozzles and accessories at hand and thus, you’ll be fully prepared for any job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Kärcher G3200XK 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, spray gun and wand.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3200XK is CARB-compliant. Thus, it can be bought and sold in any of the 50 states, including California.

The Kärcher G3200XK's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher G3200XK compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher G3200XK, which can reach up to 3200 PSI, has one of the highest pressure outputs of the gas-powered units that cost between $240 and $300.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer, which can reach 2.4, can be considered in the average. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Excell EPW2123100 has the highest GPM of 2.8.
  • The G3200XK, which reaches up to 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) is one of the more efficient, in comparison to its similarly priced counterparts. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Excell EPW2123100 and its 8680 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
