Q: Is it important to have adjustable pressure on a power washer for home use?
by Ray Lawing from Tennessee on May 23, 2011

A: This is not something important for a pressure washer. Even units with adjustable pressure, the manufacturers suggest using the nozzles to properly vary pressure. So if you are using your tips correctly, you really don't need adjustable pressure.

Thanks,

Q: I'm considering buying the Karcher Model HD-2.5/30-ch,I'm on a well,30-50psi,will this unit operate ok with that?It will be used only occationally to wash vehicles,atv's tractors,siding,brick ,walkway,is the 40 degree nozzle ok to use without damaging paint?
by Frank DeLeo from New York on May 15, 2011

A: You should be fine with the well, but you should check your gpm by using a 5 gallon bucket and see how quickly the bucket would fill up in 1 minute. This would give you an idea of what kind of flow you have. If the flow is approaching boarder line of providing you with the correct amount of flow, also take a look at the length of hose you are running. Sometimes if you are running 100' of hose, this can become a problem as well. Overall though this unit should be great for you and give you a good result.

Thanks,

Are the engines same?

by Ufie from New York on May 14, 2011

A: These models are going to be close to the same, but just a different design. The specs will be almost identical, but the HD model is going to come from Karcher Commercial/Shark. The G3025 is going to come from Karcher Residential.

Q: I have a log home that is 3,600 plus a large car garage. Everything is 100% cypress but over the years there has been some mold build up and sun discoloration.

Before I re-stain the house it needs to be properly cleaned top to bottom. Years ago I did this and burned through my and a friends Craftsman before completing the job.

Between this primary use the pressure washer would only be used occasionally and lightly.

Can you recommend a pressure washer that can handle the task and the proper cleaning solutions to be used in pressure washing mold / mildew?

Thanks

by Bob Whitwell from Texas on May 03, 2011

A: The unit you are inquiring about would work well. You could go up to a higher psi if you wanted. It would not be needed, but would allow you to get the job done quicker.

In terms of a detergent. A pressure washer safe Simple Green used for house and siding. This would have chemicals in the solution to help you eliminate the mold and mildew that has built up.

Q: Is this to much pressure to clean paint chipping on my garage doors? Will it clean pealing paint? Thank you.
by Ernie Surber from Ohio on April 24, 2011

A: No, this is definitely not too much pressure for your project. This is actually a perfect size pressure washer for what you need to do. I would absolutely recommend purchasing nothing less than 2600 psi for this type of job.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: would you recommend the 3000psi over the 2600 psi.....both Honda? Much difference between the two?? $100 more for the more psi.
by Gail from Oregon on April 24, 2011

A: A 3000 psi pressure washer can be used in many more applications than a 2600 psi machine could be. Especially if you are cleaning concrete, asphalt, or 2nd story siding is where the extra psi will be useful. You will definitely see a significant difference in performance between the 2 psi ratings. The additional cost for the increased psi rating is well worth it. However, it really depends on the types of projects you are doing.

Q: IS THE KARCHER MODEL# 2.640-852 50 FOOT REPLACEMENT/EXTENSION HOSE (3/8") COMPATIBLE WITH THE KARCHER MODEL HD 2.5/30-CH PRESSURE WASHER THAT I PURCHASED FROM YOU WHICH HAS A 1/4" HOSE
by David Gresham from Maryland on April 23, 2011

A: Yes the Karcher 3/8" hose model 2.640-852 is definitely compatible with the Karcher HD 2.5/30-CH pressure washer. Due to the difference in diameter, you will lose 1 psi per foot of hose that you go with. In this case, you will lose 50 psi but it will not even be noticeable to you.

Q: Whats the best preasure washer do you sell for 500.00 for light commercial use
by Michael from Indiana on April 03, 2011

A: From what we offer, this Karcher model HD-2.5/30-CH that comes from Karcher's commercial division and is going to be your best option for $500.00 or less. However, this model is not designed for everyday commercial use. This unit has a very good quality Karcher pump installed on it along with a Honda GC engine, the combination of the 2 components makes for a great quality pressure washer.

Also, this model is our top selling gas pressure washer and has proven to be very reliable.

Q: Hi Bill.

Is there a knob to adjust the PSI or pressure on the Karcher 3000, or is it the different tips that do that?

Regards, Norm from Quebec, Canada

by Norman Savard on March 29, 2011

A: This model does not have an adjustable pressure unloader valve installed on it. You would not be able to adjust the pressure at the pump on this machine. Yes the way to adjust the pressure on this machine would be by changing to a different tip.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Considering the Karcher HD-2.5/30-CH and looking at the turbo nozzle guide shows a size 3 orifice to be the best for this PSI/GPM combo. However all turbo nozzles with this size 3 are rated at PSI of 2300-2500 PSI. So what's my best bet for a compatible turbo nozzle with this washer? Thanks.
by Stephen from Massachusetts on March 25, 2011

A: The 3.0 orifice size is the correct size turbo nozzle for this model. This machine is rated at 3000 psi with 2.5 gpm's. You also have to take the gpm rating into consideration when selecting a turbo nozzle or spray tip for this pressure washer. The 3.0 orifice size wll also work with pressure washers at different psi ratings depending on the gpm rating.

Q: Do you have any self priming pressure washers for sale (gas or electric) ? I have wood deck on my 1/2 acre pond to clean & would like to be able to use the pond water. Thankyou.
by John from Ohio on March 25, 2011

A: Yes, all Karcher branded pressure washers both the gas and electric versions have self priming pumps that can pull water from a standing source such as a tank or pond. We also sell Kranzle and DirtKiller brand pressure washers which too have self priming pumps. Kranzle and DirtKiller only offer professional grade pressure washers while Karcher offers residential and prosumer grade models.

I would definitely recommend that you use a filter on the end of the hose that is placed in the pond to prevent debris from entering the pump. Karcher makes a hose with filter for this purpose that we sell as an accessory.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: What happens when you use hot water in a Karcher electric power washer? I never knew they were (Electric-Cold Water) listed.
by Bob Mills from Michigan on March 25, 2011

A: Karcher's cold water pressure washers can accept water up to 104F degrees. This is common with all cold water pressure washers. Using water hotter than 104F degrees in a cold water pressure washer will definitely damage and wear away the seals in the pump, causing the pump to fail. This is the fastest way to damage a pump that is rated for "cold water".

Love It, However-
I love the pressure washer, HOWEVER, on the very first use the water inlet adapter part number 91340190 stripped out of the pump.

I submitted a warranty claim through a Karcher authorized dealer on 3/22 for a replacement adapter, but I still have not received the replacement part.

I have rigged the connection by bulking up the threads with Teflon tape and then tying the hose and connection to the frame of the unit so it can't move and, therefore, cannot pull away.

I bought the HD2.53.0CH model based on PWD recomendations, and am very pleased with the performance of the unit.

The things that I thought were important in a unit were the motor and the pump. And this one has a very good Honda motor and a good pump.

The unit was delivered as scheduled within 5 days I think, assembly was very easy, and it started within a few pulls of the started cord. I bought the unit to strip off some not so good looking concrete sealer started with a 25 degree... more

I just used my power washer on the driveway, deck, and shed. No problems if you follow the directions.

Started up easily and not difficult to use. The only problem is that my wife now sees the potential and wants me to do more.

My advice to the husbands do NOT show your spouse the results. I warned you. It is starting to detract from my golf game, not good.

Fantastic
After trying a couple different electric models, both of which were horrible, I realized that the only way to get a good machine that works is go with gas.

This one is priced right, starts easy, not too noisy, and is very powerful; almost too powerful for many applications. It's not heavy and rolls around easily.

Great machine!

Could Use It More If It Wasn't So Hot
Easy to assemble. Started easily the first time with three pulls.

Spray is very strong and does a good job with porch dirt. Now if it wasn't so darn HOT here in Texas I could use it more often.

Can't really use the unit at 6am as it does make a significant noise. It will cool off soon, and I have several projects in mind.

Very fast shipping and the unit arrived safely.

A Good Deal
This pressure washer worked great to clean up my house in preparation for painting.

I did notice the throttle fluctuating high and low which caused the pressure to fluctuate high and low while I was spraying which got a little annoying. After reading the trouble shooting section of the manual, I determined it was related to how much water I was supplying to the pump and whether there were any leaks at the hose bib connections or kinks in the hose.

I figured out a 5/8" hose... more

This Honda engine is really great. Assembly of the whole unit was very easy.

The operation of the unit is very straightforward and is not as tiresome as other units I have used. My only complaint is the oil dipstick. Because it is on an angle in the housing it is not always easy to measure the oil level.

This is a great pressure washer. Unfortunately, after assembly it wouldn't start. I checked the fuel, oil, and spark and everything seemed fine. Finally I checked the air filter which was soaked with oil, suffocating the motor and preventing it from starting.

It took about 5 pulls the first time to start but starts on the first pull after that. Honda motor runs quieter than most.

PWD RESPONDS: To save wear and tear on the supply side (garden hose) connector, you may want to add a quick connector set.

We sell a brass set by General Pump (part#D10010); you can also find them at your local hardware store.

Simple Problem, Simple Fix- Happy Washer
This is far and away the best consumer-type pressure washer I've used. I have rented and borrowed others, but none combined the power and ease of use like this one. Like others, my decision to purchase this was largely based on the reviews.

I did have the same problem mentioned by Kurt H. below. After about 2 hours the connection between wand and gun was leaking due to a torn O-Ring. So, don't know if Karcher got a bad lot of O-rings or they are being damaged during assembly. But its a... more

Great Pressure Washer
I ordered this washer 2 month ago, got it a day early and it has been setting for all that time.

My son-in-law came over with a commercial machine. Well, I tell you what, this Karcher out-performed that commercial job 2 to 1. That Honda motor- set the choke and one pull and starts right up. I'm sure it will give me years of service.

Thanks, Pressure Washers Direct.

Great Machine
This machine does the job as expected. The pressure is enough to clean a large space. It's easy to assemble, light weight, has an additional feature- it's Honda motor is easy to start and the fuel consumption is low.

I recommend it for quality, performance, and good price. Besides, Pressure Washers Direct.com delivery is fast and the packing is safe with a double box.

I expect to buy another one for my cousin- thanks a lot.

Reviews Were True...
The reviews that I read prior to purchase were true. The power washer was delivered within 3 days and was very easy to assemble.

It fired right up and it made cleaning my 30 x 20 deck a snap. After about 2 hours of operation a drip developed between the wand and the spray gun connection. I tightened it up but it still leaked. I took it apart and found the rubber o-ring had split. I will order another o-ring and be on my way to power washing my PVC fence.

The unit arrived double boxed and in good shape.

Easy to assemble with very few things to do. A few bolts, put air in the tires and fill with oil and gas.

Instructions are a little confusing but you cannot use over the counter detergents. You have to use Karcher type with this unit.

Easy to start up and use. Strong enough to make short order of 2 patios and mold on brick.

Good Product so far.

I ordered this pressure washer 4 days ago and it just got here- very fast shipping.

When it got here I checked it out and put it together- very easy assembly.

I tested it, and I recommend getting it for the price- it's awesome and gets the job done right; although I wish it had a bigger gas tank.

Blown Hose
The 3000 PSI hose blew a hole in less than 10 minutes use. The Authorized service center wants me to drop off the entire unit so they can order a hose.

It was nice of PWD to get the unit delivered to me in 5 days, but it looks like it'll be Spring before I get to use it. NOT HAPPY!!

PWD RESPONDS: We apologize for the inconvenience. The manufacturer can have the entire unit inspected to make their warranty decision, since their warranty only covers defects in materials and workmanship.

The drain for the oil is a really dumb location, very hard to change without oil going all over the place.

I could not get the motor running when I opened it up and got it ready. It smelled like I flooded the engine after one pull. I let it rest and then tried again and the same thing happened.

Then I noticed gas coming out the overflow tube or drain tube- I'm assuming that is what the tube is for. I took the spark plug out and it was dry. I figured it wasn't flooded because the gas was not reaching the spark plug.

Like The Machine; Stupid Oil Drain
This unit has the most stupid oil draining setup that I have ever seen. It almost appears that the Honda
engine used was placed on the wrong frame. The oil change requires that you allow the oil to run all over
the frame and ground since the plug is right on top of the bottom plate.

Now maybe there is some drain ramp that could be made out of plastic that would catch most of the oil, I don't know.

Otherwise, I like the machine just fine. Bad error in this regard however. Let me know... more

The Honda engine started right up (it is a Honda, after all) and the pressure washer made my $7000 investment look like the day that I installed it.

I actually got comments from neighbors that it looked like a brand new fence. If you have any kind of fencing, or better yet your home, you cannot afford NOT to own one these pressure washers.

It's not so bulky like some 3000 psi washers, but that's not to say that it isn't sturdy; and I can lift it myself if need be.

All the parts are quality and rust free right down to those big wheels. I was sold on the Honda engine, but I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality from head to toe.

It is also quieter than I expected but I'm comparing it to the $400 2600psi Craftsman brand with the Briggs and Stratton engine that I had for 10 years.
