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

The Predator 3100 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying 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

The Predator 3100's axial pump, powered by an impressive 212 cc (6.5 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (approximately 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.8 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Predator 3100 thus has 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

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

Weighing 70 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212 cc Predator engine and its steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the 3100 remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

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 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Reaching a 3100 PSI max pressure output, the Predator 3100 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $300 to $400 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 that can reach up to 3400 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 2.8 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the best of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water.
  • Boasting with 8680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the 3100 is one of the more efficient devices in its respective price range. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Predator 3200 with its 8960 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
