Description

Zoom on the Predator 3200

In summary, the Predator 3200 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • 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

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 3200 in use

The Predator 3200

The Predator 3200's axial cam pump, powered by an impressive 223cc (6.8 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (approximately 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.8 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Predator 3200 thus has a cleaning power of 8960 Cleaning Units.

The Predator engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.79 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D27 x W20 x H43 in, the Predator 3200 provides great mobility. Its sturdy steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 66.5 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 223cc Predator engine and its steel frame. But, as the 3200 does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Predator 3200 in use

The Predator 3200

The Predator 3200 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a dedicated tank. The automatic soap dilution mechanism of the Predator 3200 will dilute the detergent with a 7:1 ratio. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with Predator 3200's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation), a low oil protection and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Predator 3200 also comes with funnel, tool kit, wand, pressure hose and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Predator 3200 is NOT CARB-compliant. Therefore, it is not available in California for sale nor purchase.

The Predator 3200's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Predator 3200 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 3200 PSI, the Predator 3200 is one of the gas-powered products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $300 to $400 price range. As for the device with the most powerful water stream, in this price range, one of the top products is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the 2.8 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, that can deliver up to 3 GPM.
  • With a rather impressive value of 8960 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the 3200 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units.
