Pulsar Products PWG2600V Gas Powered Pressure Washer Review
Tired of cleaning stubborn dirt and grime? Well, Pulsar Products’ latest gas-powered pressure washer may just be the right equipment to take care of your pressure cleaning needs, as it definitely does its job quickly and efficiently.
The Pulsar Products PWG2600V 2600PSI Gas-Powered Pressure Washer is a great unit to have in your shed, to be taken out specifically for those tough cleaning jobs. It effectively cleans driveways, walkways, floors, patios, rooftops, gutters, sidings, fences, windows, vehicles and just about any kind of surface be it wooden, concrete, metal, aluminum, vinyl, tiles, bricks or marble.
All the essential components are housed in a powder-coated steel frame for corrosion protection. It also has a quick-release collapsible handle to easily stow the equipment away when not in use.
Here are some of its outstanding features:
It is equipped with a 160cc OHV engine and 3 piston axial cam high-pressure pumps that churn out a maximum pressure of 2600 PSI and a rated flow of 2.0 GPM.
It is fitted with 12” never flat wheels to easily transport or maneuver the equipment through difficult terrain, even up or down a flight of stairs. Just connect this mean machine to your water source and it will immediately do its job before you can even say ‘pronto’!
The 25’ high-pressure hose also allows you to cover enough work area without necessarily having to re-setup time and again. The 18” stainless steel wand provides easy access to those hard-to-reach areas.
Three Quick-Connect Nozzle Tips
The 0-degree nozzle provides a very concentrated stream of water that is good for blasting away stubborn stains.
The 40-degree nozzle, on the other hand, has a wider spray pattern that is perfect for cleaning larger surface areas like roofs, gutter, and downspouts.
The soap nozzle is a low pressure-nozzle that allows for mixing of liquids together. You have to pre-soak the surface you want to clean, however, in order to maximize the cleaning capability of this option.
This equipment does not come without some drawbacks, however, so we have listed some of the flaws that we have observed below.
This hard-working machine sure burns fuel fast. Some users have even pointed out that their one tank (0.34 gallons) of fuel only lasted for about two hours.
It could be a little difficult starting the motor from the cold. But if you give it a couple more tries it will roar into life and you’ll be off and running in no time.
Pulsar PWG2600V: Conclusion
The Pulsar PWG2600V 2600PSI Gas-Powered Pressure Washer is an effective unit to clean tough dirt and grime on just about any type of surface. If you want a mobile pressure washer, it does have the advantage of roaming more freely across your work area as it is not tied to an electrical connection, compared to those electrical pressure washers that are widely available in this category.
It does sip fuel fast, however, and it can be a little difficult to start the motor on colder temperatures. If fuel cost is not a big deal for you and if you are willing to look past the sometimes-difficult cold-starting limitations, then this mobile, medium-duty pressure washer could just be the right one for you.
