Zoom on the Kärcher K1900

In a nutshell, the Kärcher K1900 is a light to medium duty pressure washer that allows:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail 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 K1900 in use

The Kärcher K1900

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1900 PSI (almost 32 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2470 Cleaning Units.

Kärcher allows you to easily start this electric pressure washer, utilizing the K1900's ON/OFF pedal. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The Kärcher K1900 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D18.3 x W19 x H35.5 in. The aluminum frame grants the device a good durability, as it will not rust. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of only 39.3 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its aluminum frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 10" wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Kärcher K1900 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: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 1 gal tank. However, since the Kärcher K1900 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A front sheath enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The Kärcher K1900's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Kärcher K1900 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Karcher K1900, which can achieve a PSI of up to 1900, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $240 to $300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4601 with 3000 PSI.
  • This washer reaches 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS, that can deliver up to 1.7 GPM.
  • The K1900 has 2470 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other electric devices of this price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS and its 3910 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Karcher K1900 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.

    Works very well when it works. I bought 2 , one for the house and one for the cottage. It worked for about 3 or 4 times . Than the gun start leaking and not able to build pressure. I opened the gun and the valve is too weaks to handled the pressure and cracked . They both have exactly the same problem. I’m waiting to receive a new gun under warranty but unless they upgraded the valve the situation will be the same.

    + PROS: Good performance
    - CONS: Broke very quickly.
