The Karcher Pressure Washer has a Karcher KPS 196 cc engine that can produce a maximum PSI of 2700. It has an output of 2.5 gallons per minute and the engine is backed by a 3-year limited warranty. This washer is ideal for professionals and DIY, but does not have as much power as other leading models in the professional series. The axial cam pump, located underneath the unit, has an aluminum head and is backed by a 2-year warranty.
This model can handle various jobs with its interchangeable tips. It comes with 6 nozzle tips, including 0, 15, 25, 40, and 65-degree tips as well as a soap tip for jobs that require cleaning products. It does have onboard detergent storage, which is a feature that really makes jobs easier. Connecting to a siphon hose can be a hassle, but this gallon tank won’t require as much fill up than other models. The unit’s frame is made of welded steel, but the design lacks functionality. The unit was made to be a higher-end budget sprayer and the sacrifices were made when designing the frame. The handle does fold down for easy storage, but the frame is not ideal for protecting the engine. The frame sits on two never-flat pneumatic wheels for easy mobility and transportation.
The unit comes with a 25-foot hose and the spray wand has a child safety lock to avoid accidents. The spray gun itself is comfortable to grip and has no issue with dripping during use. Everything including the hose, the gun, and tip nozzles can be stored onboard the unit. As previously stated, we found the design to be compact effectiveness rather than protection. Overall, this is a great Pressure Washer for professionals who are looking to spend less on a washer with mid-level range PSI.
