Description

This powerful pressure washer is built for tough jobs, with 2500 PSI and 2.4 GPM of cleaning power. The pressure washer has a long-reach high pressure hose so you can clean wider areas. Two heavy duty flat-free tires make transport easy. This is a great pressure cleaner for any auto garage or shop that wants to clean larger items spic-n-span!

Zoom on the Predator 2500

In a nutshell, the Predator 2500 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile 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 Predator 2500 in use

The Predator 2500

Its axial pump, which utilizes a 196cc (5.6 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (almost 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 6000 Cleaning Units.

The Predator engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

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

Design & Handling

The Predator 2500 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. 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. Its 196cc Predator engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. 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 in use

The Predator 2500

The Predator 2500 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a dedicated tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

  • Accessories: Included with the Predator 2500 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 tool kit, funnel, wand, pressure hose and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Predator 2500 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, the sale and purchase of this pressure washer is permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

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 compared to similarly priced pressure washers.

This unit is now discontinued, but used to be sold around $330.

  • The Predator 2500 and its 2500 PSI, ranked amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $300 and $400. 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.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), was on the lower end of the achievable water flow. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
  • With 6000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the 2500 was on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. 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 Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units.

  • Onboard storage
