Power

The Predator 2500 in use

The Predator 2500

Powered by a 196 cc (5.6 hp) engine, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2500 PSI (around 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Predator 2500 has a cleaning power of 6000 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Predator engine.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.79 gallon.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design, the Predator 2500 offers great mobility. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

Weighing 63.5 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Predator engine and its steel frame. But, as the 2500 does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Predator 2500's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Predator 2500 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Predator 2500 with its 2500 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, which can reach up to 3 GPM.
  • The 2500's Cleaning Units, 6000 CU (PSI X GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to gas-powered devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 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 gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the Predator 2500 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.
