Karcher G 2700 PSI 2.5 GPM Review – Does The Gas Pressure Washer Hold Up For The Price?

Karcher G 2700 PSI 2.5 GPM Gas Power Pressure Washer

Electric pressure washers are practical for occasional, small cleaning jobs around the house. However, a number of applications require us to use gas machines that provide a better cleaning power. If you have a need for a relatively powerful gas power washer, the Karcher G 2700 is one to consider. This review covers the important aspects of this product.

The G 2700 is driven by a 196cc Karcher engine. This is a 4 cycle engine, meaning there is no need to mix the oil and the gas. The OHV engine uses unleaded gas with a minimum of 87 octane and SAE 10W-30 oil to operate. Fuel tank size is .26 Gallons (1.0L) and oil crankcase capacity is 0.6L.

Designed for general household jobs, the gas power pressure washer delivers water stream at 2700 MAX PSI/2.5 GPM that suggests that it can be used for heavier residential purposes. Light-duty pressure washers are usually rated below 2000 PSI. Have a look at the Karcher K 2.350 or the Karcher K3 Follow-Me if all you need is a compact machine for light duty applications such as car washing.

To help you tackle different tasks, the power cleaner is shipped with five quick connect nozzles that provide a wide array of spray widths from 0° to 65°. The red colored nozzle gives 0° spray angle, making it ideal for stubborn accumulation. To clean moderate dirt accumulation over a large surface, pick the 45° nozzle. This model does not come with a variable nozzle. Have a look at the G 2800 OC model for this feature.

The 2700 PSI power washier comes equipped with an on board soap tank. A soap nozzle is provided for operating with detergents. The company sells biodegradable detergents that are specially formulated to protect the environment and your machine. A number of accessories such as extension hose, spray nozzle, and universal wash brush kit are also offered by Karcher.

In terms of design, the power cleaner measures 23.6″ x 21.6″ x 39.4″ (L x W x H). With an upright design, it requires a small storage footprint. The folding handle is another plus point of this product. Weighing 48.5 lbs, combined with the 8″ pneumatic tires on the main frame, you can be sure that it is easy to move from place to place.

As with most models with less than 3000 PSI, this one comes equipped with an axial cam water pump. Generally, axial cam pumps are more reliable than wobble pumps that are usually used on the entry level electric machines. You can expect a longer life expectancy with this type of pump. The aluminum head keeps assembly cost down.

Other features offered are a high-pressure 25 ft hose, a nozzle holder, and a trigger gun with safety lock to prevent it from accidentally being engaged. This model comes with a 3-year warranty for the engine and a 2-year warranty for the pump.

The Karcher G 2700 might not be the most popular gasoline powered pressure washer in the class. That said, most reviews for this product has been very encouraging. With a review rating of 4.4/5 stars (from 40 user reviews), it is clear that the outdoor power equipment offers good value for the price.

Obviously, no product is perfect. There is no adjustable pressure regulator in the pressure washer. Changing water pressure is accomplished using the multiple tips.

The Karcher 2.5 GPM pressure cleaner is not engineered to handle toughest jobs. Some wish the hose to be a little more flexible.

Despite having a few downsides, most reviewers have left positive feedback for the residential pressure washer. People have reported that it starts on the first or second pull every time. As for build quality, it seems to be very sturdy and well built. Engine oil is not included but this applies for any model.

So, although there have been a few complaints made about the residential pressure washer, it seems that the pros outweigh the cons. If you are in the market for a gas powered power washer, then the Karcher G 2700 is worth considering.
