Description

Driven by a powerful Honda GX200 engine, the G3500OHT is the perfect work companion for contractors and demanding users. Equipped with a three piston crankshaft (triplex) pump with professional-grade unloader valve, this unit can handle the largest and most challenging cleaning assignments. Pros will appreciate the 25ft steel-braided rubber high pressure hose, pneumatic tires with metal wheels and durable welded frame.

Zoom on the Kärcher G3500OHT

In summary, the Kärcher G3500OHT is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Using a 196 cc (5.8 hp) engine, its brass triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 3500 PSI (roughly 58 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM (CETA-certified values). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 9100 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GX200 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.82 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher G3500OHT is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W22 x H35 in. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the G3500OHT convenience of transport.

With a weight of 76 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. However, the two 10" pneumatic wheels allow the G3500OHT to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher G3500OHT itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. As the Kärcher G3500OHT doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included VersaGRIP spray gun and its zinc-coated wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

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: The Kärcher G3500OHT features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a low oil protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Kärcher G3500OHT 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 oil, pressure hose, wand and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3500OHT is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this pressure washer is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.
