Zoom on the Pulsar W2800H

The Pulsar W2800H, a medium to heavy duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • 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

Using an impressive 212 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (roughly 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7000 Cleaning Units.

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

The fuel is stored in a metal tank, which can hold up to 0.31 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Pulsar W2800H provides great mobility. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the W2800H convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 73 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212 cc Ducar engine and its steel frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the W2800H remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The Pulsar W2800H's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to 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 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

  • The Pulsar W2800H, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2800, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers 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 Stanley SXPW3425 that can reach up to 3400 PSI.
  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as average. 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 7000 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the W2800H is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
