Description

Pulsar’s W2800H Gas-Powered Pressure Washer brings together power and versatility for efficient outdoor cleaning at home and at work. It utilizes a powerful 212cc, OHV engine to deliver a 2.5 GPM flow rate at 2,800-psi for more effective cleaning. Designed with a powder coat steel frame, never flat wheels, and a padded handle for optimal durability and added maneuvering capabilities. (source: Pulsar (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Pulsar W2800H

In summary, the Pulsar W2800H is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Powered by a powerful 212cc engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2800 PSI (around 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Pulsar W2800H has a cleaning power of 7000 Cleaning Units.

The Ducar engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline is stored in a metal fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.31 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Pulsar W2800H offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design. 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.

Weighing 73 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 212cc Ducar engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. But, as the W2800H does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

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: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured 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 following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: The Pulsar W2800H allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Pulsar W2800H are also the owner's manual and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as pressure hose, wand and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The Pulsar W2800H is NOT CARB-compliant and so you cannot buy it nor sell it in California.

The Pulsar W2800H's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Pulsar W2800H compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Pulsar W2800H, a device which can produce up to 2800 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
  • Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.5 is in the average compared to other devices in its price range. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
  • With 7000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the W2800H is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Lifan LFQ3370, which can reach up to 9900 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7000 and 7500 Cleaning Units, the Pulsar W2800H is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.

    Just purchased brand new out of the box pulsar 2800. Brought it home assembled it even followed the instructions. Filled with oil and gas – went to start with the recoil string and feels as though it is all seized up. Pissed off – DO NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCTS – now I get to repackage and return to the store with a full tank of gas. Such bullshit ! Boycott there pressure washers and do not buy. Did I mention I am pissed.

    + PROS: None - won’t start - seriously I can not rate this cause it won’t start. I tried to give a zero rating but their sight forces you to put something in and what I put in was the lowest the rating would allow me and it’s STILL TO HIGH OF A RATING OF HALF A STAR. Your product sucks and I hope you company closes down.
    - CONS: Pull this out of every store ! Have you ever heard of Quality Assurance. This is like going thru a drive thru - you get fu**ed going thru the drive thru.
