Q: can you use these pressure washers on autos?
by Carlos Ballesteros from California on May 26, 2015

A: Yes, This unit would be a good choice for your application. The unit comes with 5 different spray tips for the different applications at hand. For example the red 0 degree tip would be for tough jobs like concrete while the white 40 degree tip would be for delicate jobs like your car. Also, in my opinion Karcher makes the best consumer grade unit available today and I would not hesitate to recommend this unit.

Q: Do these washers put out the claimed pressures ?
What pump life can be expected?
I am considering the Karcher G 3050.
Thanks for your help.

by DON MOEN from Iowa on August 05, 2014

A: Yes, they put out their claimed pressures. The way to adjust the PSI is to change the colored spray tip and pattern.
0 DEGREE (RED TIP)
15 DEGREE(Yellow TIP)
25 DEGREE (Green Tip)
40 DEGREE (White Tip)

A. 0 DEGREE - BLASTING
B. 15 DEGREE - STRIPPING
C. 25 DEGREE - CLEANING
D. 40 DEGREE WASHING
E. 60 DEGREE- SOAP APPLICATION


I love this unit because it pairs a Honda engine and a Karcher brass head pump. The brass head is important because it dissipates heat better than all aluminum pumps, therefore extending its lifespan. Pumps are not rated in a number of hours, it is like an engine in that it needs to be properly taken care of. You always want to be sure you are using PRESSURE WASHER SAFE DETERGENTS as well as using PUMP SAVER to winterize the pump. Finally, the biggest tip I can offer is to not leave the trigger gun un-pulled. This causes the pressurized water to continue to circulate within the pump, significantly decreasing it's lifespan.

James,
I'm sorry you are having problems with your pressure washer. I checked your file, and there's a note on your file saying we have arranged for a Karcher representative to contact you directly so you could get the Factory Warranty service you need.

The note is dated just yesterday- if you haven't heard from the already, you should have an email or voice message by the end of today. As we said in our email to you- If you do need additional assistance from us, please do not hesitate to ask.

James,
It sounds like the unloader valve needs cleaning since you experienced this issue a year ago. Since a couple of the service centers near you have closed, we shipped you a new pump while we signup new service centers in that area. Please call our help line at 800-537-4129 anytime you need help on a Karcher product.

Good Powerwasher
Powerwasher with a Honda works great. The holder for the different tips are cheap soon as motor starts tips go flying out of sight! Have to carry them in my pockets.

Great Pressure Washer But......
The first two times I used the pressure washer it performed excellent and was everything I expected and performed well. On the third use when I fired it up it started leaking gas excessively around the carburetor area so now I will need to find a dealer who can perform the warranty work before I can use it again.

That part is disappointing but otherwise I love the pressure washer and its performance.
Steven Recommends This Karcher Product
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Steven,
Before you look for Warranty Service, you may want to check the fuel hose that leads to the carburetor- sometimes the clip that holds the hose in place gets knocked out of place, which allows leaking (make sure the unit is off turned off and cool, first please!). It may only take a couple minutes with a pair of pliers to put the clip back where it belongs.

If that doesn't help, you can find Karcher Authorized Warranty Service in your area by using their Service Locator or giving Karcher a call at (800) 537-4129. If you call Karcher, please be sure to have the serial number of the pressure washer handy when you call them; they will ask for it.

If you have several service locations in your area you may want to call them to see who has the quickest turn-around time.

Too Expensive To Last Only One Month!!!!!!
I need to use a power washer everyday to clean the floors of my dog kennel. Not only did I pay more for your washer than for washers I have purchased in the past, but it did not last longer than a month.

My problem now is that you were unwilling to replace it and had me take it to a repair shop. I now have to wait 6 weeks for it to be repaired. Recommend this washer... No Way!!!

Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Ted,
When you called us, you said the pressure washer water was pulsating and losing pressure as you were using it. That can be an indicator that there isn't enough water getting to the pump. Please check that the filter where your supply (garden) hose attaches is free of debris, that the garden hose is at least 5/8" in diameter and no longer than 30 feet, and that you're using city water that supplies at least 3 gallons per minute. If you've got a 100 foot garden hose and/or an inadequate water supply (like a well or cistern) the pump will be starved for water and surge.

It is against Federal Law to ship an engine that has had gasoline in it because of the fire/explosion hazard. That's why we only sell products that have Factory Warranties and and national service networks. Karcher's Service Locator shows 5 Authorized Repair Locations in your area, and we recommend calling around to see who has the shortest turn-around time. You told us you only checked the closest location with a 3 week turn-around time; I'm sorry that it has extended to 6 weeks.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Manual Sucks
Good unit so far, but comes with a generic manual for multiple models hard to interpret what applies to "your" machine.

Insufficient photos make it easy to install handle backwards if you're not careful.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Pressure Washer
I got tired of renting or borrowing a pressure washer so decided to break down and buy one. PED had a good selection and the best prices, including shipping.

The washer starts easy, runs well, is easy to use. The only complaint is the crappy 25 foot hose that's included. No matter how I straighten it or position it, it always wants to recoil and end up directly under my feet. I've ordered a 50 footer. We'll see how that works.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Michael,
The hose should relax some with use. Laying it out straight in the sun for a while before use should also help it lose the memory of the coil.

I checked your file and didn't see a hose order yet, so in general terms if you order a Prosumer or Professional grade hose it will cost more, but it will be more durable and flexible than Consumer grade hoses.

We tell the shippers not to tip the pressure washers, but sometimes it happens, anyway. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience, and I'm glad everything worked out OK.

Mixed Experience
The power washer is a fine product. Unfortunately I received it defective and instead of standing behind their product, Powe Washers Direct chose to ignore customer service and told me I was on my own. I definitely recommend the machine but high recommend every customer to purchase from anywhere BUT Power Washer Direct.

Keith,
Due to Federal shipping regulations, Pressure Washers Direct cannot take returns through the mail on any power equipment that's been gassed or oiled.

Therefor, as we explained you to and provided in writing via email, you must take your pressure washer to a local authorized repair center to have it repaired under warranty at no additional charge.

We're sorry that you are unhappy with the outcome. Let us know if you're having any trouble getting your pressure washer repaired under warranty. We'd be happy to make some calls to the manufacturer to help you get the service you need.

On A Big Job And Doing Great
I have a very large area of Omnistone driveway, parking area and courtyard patio. The grass, weeds and moss between the pavers has become a major problem.

Tried many ways to get it out without much luck. I borrowed a friend's power washer to see if that would work. It was an older Sears model with a B&S engine. It did the job better than other things I had tried but was still difficult.

Now using the new Karcher and it is so much easier. The tip selection is great, allows you to... more
