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:

  • precise spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and effectively removing stubborn stains
  • complete cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface prep for painting
  • mild cleaning for delicate surfaces, and low-pressure cleaning for broader areas
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Predator 3100 in use

The Predator 3100

The Predator 3100's axial pump, powered by an impressive 212cc (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). Thus, the Predator 3100 achieves a cleaning power of 8680 Cleaning Units.

For this gas-powered pressure washer, the Predator engine is started using a time-tested pull-start mechanism.

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

The hand truck design of the Predator 3100 ensures effortless movement and transportation. Built to endure, the steel frame ensures the assembly's longevity by providing stability and safeguarding internal components under all working conditions. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

With a weight of 70 lbs, the unit is comfortably maneuverable for most users, allowing for efficient handling during cleaning tasks. A significant portion of this weight is attributed to the inclusion of the 212cc Predator engine and a sturdy steel frame. Nevertheless, the 3100's two 12" never-flat wheels ensure it remains easy to maneuver.

Main Features

The Predator 3100

  • 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: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: Refer to the table below for details on the 5 included nozzles and their recommended surface applications.

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.

  • The Predator 3100 with its 3100 PSI achieved a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $400-500 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Simpson PS61201 with 3500 PSI.
  • Featuring a water flow of up to 2.8 GPM, this washer sat at the upper echelon of the aforementioned price range, providing a generous volume of water. When it comes to efficiently rinsing away debris, one standout option within this price range is the Lifan LFQ3370E, delivering an impressive 3 GPM.
  • Boasting 8680 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) in total, the 3100 placed itself as one of the more efficient choices in its specific price range. 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
