Description

Zoom on the Pulsar PWG3100VE

In summary, the Pulsar PWG3100VE is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application 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 Pulsar PWG3100VE in use

The Pulsar PWG3100VE

The Pulsar PWG3100VE's brass axial cam pump, powered by a 196 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 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Pulsar PWG3100VE thus has a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

With a dual start mechanism, the Ducar DV196 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability: you may choose the more convenient electric start, or the classic pull-start mechanism. The electric start requires a 12V battery, which is included.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.31 gallon of gasoline, which provides an approximate runtime of 60 minutes.

Design & Handling

The Pulsar PWG3100VE is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20 x W20 x H38 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PWG3100VE convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 68.3 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 196 cc Ducar DV196 engine and steel frame. Since the PWG3100VE has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

The Pulsar PWG3100VE

Along with the Pulsar PWG3100VE 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 is stored in a removable 0.8 gal tank. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The 30 ft ⌀5/16" 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its stainless steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Pulsar PWG3100VE's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Pulsar PWG3100VE compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With its 3100 PSI max pressure output, the Pulsar PWG3100VE is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $300-400 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 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs 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 Predator 3200, with a GPM of 2.8.
  • The PWG3100VE, with its 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. 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 Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units.
