Finding a good gas-powered pressure washer is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you find a really great one, but most of the time you end up overpaying for something that barely works – if it works at all.
As one of the smallest gas-powered pressure washers around, the Karcher Expert Series 3200 PSI doesn’t take up a lot of room. It’s great for those with small workshops or just a garage to keep clean. Not really ideal for those with big workshops that need to be cleaned a lot. But that’s why Karcher gave us the smallest one around. It’s durable, easy to transport, and even easier to store in the corner until you need it again by folding it up. Still, it’s a rather hefty 73 pounds, but that’s only a real hindrance if you’re trying to pick it up to haul around. Just use the wheels and the handle.
One of our favorite things about this guy is that it comes with a lot of built in storage space. This is very handy if you need to use a lot of detergent, brushes, or any nozzles that you keep tucked away elsewhere. Now you don’t have to stop everything you’re doing just to find your accessories. Everything is built in now, which is a very handy feature.
The trigger gun is pretty powerful, and depending on the nozzle you use, this thing packs quite the punch. Good thing it comes with a child proof lock just in case your little squirts cause a big squirt in the workshop. Various tests by other reviewers show that the Karcher Expert Series 3200 PSI can clean up a small workshop in about fifteen minutes, which is nothing to sneeze at. Of course, it depends on the size of your mess.
- “I have owned this product for two months. Started the first time and every time since. No more than two pulls.”
- “I’ve used the pressure washer for 6 hours now. I’m disappointed in the power and cleaning speed….”
- “This pressure washer has a week pump, mine quit the third time I used it.”
Overall it looks like a good model, with few complaints. Some complaints that exist include issues with the hose itself, but that can be avoided by doing the proper maintenance. If you’re in the market for a new gas-powered pressure washer, the new Karcher is worth checking out.
