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

Power

The Predator 2650 in use

The Predator 2650

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 196cc (5.6 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2650 PSI (almost 44 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 6360 Cleaning Units.

The engine of this gas pressure washer is activated by pulling a starter cord, following a traditional approach.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.92 gallon..

Design & Handling

The Predator 2650's mobility is greatly enhanced by its hand truck design. The steel tubing frame's robustness ensures the assembly's longevity, maintaining stability and protecting internal components, even in the harshest environments. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With its 63.5 lbs weight, this unit offers a manageable size that allows for easy handling by most individuals, enhancing user convenience during operation. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 196cc engine and a sturdy steel tubing frame. However, with its two 12" never-flat wheels, the 2650 is easy to maneuver.

Main Features

The Predator 2650 in use

The Predator 2650

Along with the Predator 2650 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: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. With its automatic soap dilution mechanism, the Predator 2650 simplifies the process of blending detergent to the prescribed ratio of 7:1. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: Utilizing a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a convenient solution for storing the included 25 ft high-pressure hose when it's not in use, keeping it neatly organized.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: Below, you'll find a table outlining the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surfaces.

The Predator 2650's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Predator 2650 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Predator 2650, a device which can produce up to 2650 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with a PSI of 3400.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. 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.
  • Featuring 6360 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the 2650 sits at the lower spectrum when compared to other devices in the same price range and fuel category. 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.
