Description

This powerful pressure washer is built for tough jobs, with 3100 PSI and 2.8 GPM of cleaning power. The pressure washer has a long-reach high pressure hose so you can clean wider areas. Two heavy duty pneumatic tires make transport easy.

Zoom on the Predator 3100

In a nutshell, the Predator 3100 is a heavy duty, commercial 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 frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Predator 3100 in use

The Predator 3100

Using a powerful 212cc (6.5 hp) engine, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.8 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 8680 Cleaning Units.

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

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon, which provides an approximate runtime of 180 minutes.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.8 x W22.5 x H36.8 in, the Predator 3100 provides great mobility. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 70 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 212cc Predator engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. The 3100 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Predator 3100 in use

The Predator 3100

The Predator 3100 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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.

The Predator 3100's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Predator 3100 compared to similarly priced pressure washers.

This unit is now discontinued, but used to be sold around $400.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 3100 PSI, the Predator 3100 found itself in the expected pressure range among gas-powered units that cost between $400 and $500. 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 Simpson PS61201 with a PSI of 3500.
  • With a water flow of up to 2.8 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belonged to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Lifan LFQ3370E, with a GPM of 3.
  • Reaching up to 8680 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the 3100 was one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370E and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Good range of nozzles included
  • Onboard storage
  • Several security features
  • High GPM for the price
  • High CU for the price
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent PSI for the price
WEAKNESSES:
  • Not CARB-compliant
