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 and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Its brass triplex pump, which utilizes a 196 cc (5.8 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3500 PSI (almost 58 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 9100 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GX200 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.82 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W22 x H35 in, the Kärcher G3500OHT offers great mobility. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the G3500OHT convenience of transport.

Weighing 76 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and its welded steel frame. But, as the G3500OHT does have a set of two 10" pneumatic wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

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: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. It must be noted that the Kärcher G3500OHT doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included VersaGRIP spray gun and its zinc-coated wand.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

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 allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a low oil protection.
  • 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 pressure hose, oil, wand and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Kärcher G3500OHT is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. This means that this pressure washer can be bought and sold in each of the 50 states, including California.

In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Generac 6565 has the highest GPM of 4.
  • Amongst similarly priced gas-powered devices, the 9100 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) of the G3500OHT rank as low. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Simpson PS60843 and its 17600 Cleaning Units.
