Q: If you use hot water in this model will it harm it? What is the warm/hottest water that can be used?
by Stephen from Virginia on January 23, 2014

A: Yes it will harm the pump. This unit is only rated to accept temperatures up to 104 degrees. Any warmer of water will damage the seals on the pump and shorten it's life significantly.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Can you replace the screw type connections with quick connects? Thank you in advance
by Tom from Tennessee on March 11, 2013

A: You cannot replace the threaded fittings but you can add adapters to the existing fittings to create a quick connect type of connection.

The adapters you would need are part #'s D10035, D10037, D10088, and D10089. You will need 1 of each adapter to make the high pressure hose and trigger gun set up all quick connect type connections.

Below is a link to that section of adapters on our website:

Q: Can the T-Racer be used with the Karcher 3000 Gas washer, or is the psi of the washer too high for this surface cleaner? I am looking for an economical surface cleaning unit that can be used with the Karcher 3000.
by Alan from Texas on February 14, 2013

A: No, unfortunately the T350 CANNOT be used with the Karcher 3000 psi rated pressure washer. The maximum amount of pressure this surface cleaner can handle is 2650 psi. For the Karcher 3000 psi model, you would want to purchase the Briggs & Stratton surface cleaner model # 6178. This surface cleaner is rated for up to 3000 psi.

Good Machine
I purchased this machine from Pressure Washers Direct. Upon unpacking I noticed the box was opened and resealed I took it over to hose and hooked it up; it had a leak. A friend stopped by and tightened the fitting to hose and worked good but then hose blew out and the leak was because someone repacked the box and the intake was damaged. I ordered a $1.99 part for the inside of the garden hose coupling and replaced it and now works fine. I was able to get by a few days with Teflon tape to hold... more

Pressure Washer
I am pleased with the Karcher 3000 psi pressure washer. I used it for about ten hours after I set it up to clean the driveway and back lanai.

The only problem I had was the trigger gun came with a broken handle that prevents it from locking on when doing a big job. I checked with local warranty services and will need to bring it in to get a replacement.

I also recommend anyone buying a washer to purchase a bottle of pump cleaner/conditioner and use it after each use. It will prevent... more

Seeing Is Believing!
I was leaning toward the Generac 3000 but my local big box store doesn't keep it on the shelf. It would take over two weeks for shipping. They do have the Troy-Bilt XP 3000 at the store but there were way too many on-line negative reviews for me. While searching the Internet, I stumbled onto Power Equipment Direct which turned out to be a good thing.

Even though the Karcher was $100 more than either of the previous mentioned machines at the same pressure output, nearly every one of its'... more

I used an older Karcher 3050 model for 2 1/2 years with very few problems. When I did have a problem, my boss was talked into buying a new machine as the old one was "just not worth repairing" according to the Karcher authorized dealer/service shop.
When the new machine arrived, I assembled it and put it to work. I used it about 2-6 hours per week for the first few months and then about 2-6 hours per month after that.

From day one the pump surged and acted like it was not... more

This unit has a 1 year Factory Warranty for consumer use; usually they will allow 90 days for commercial use to cover any "day 1" problems due to manufacturer's defect.

For commercial use we usually recommend a unit with a rebuildable triplex plunger pump. Axial pumps can't be rebuilt; they can only be replaced.

Self Priming Pump Works
I purchased this pressure washer for light duty commercial work.

My biggest concern was being able to find a self-priming pump that will pull from a free standing tank since a pressurized system is not always available. I was told all Karcher pressure washers will do this.

Ordering was a breeze and delivery was right on time. I put this equipment together in 15 minutes, followed all directions and it started right up with no issues.

On my very first job, I just had to try the... more

Great Buy From Pressure Washers
Great pressure washer!! The transaction with Pressure Washers Direct on line was easy and quick response.

I'm very happy with the unit, it put together very easily and it started on the second pull. I've used it on the house siding, washed the decks prior to painting and even used it to wash the truck and motorcycle.

It's a real joy.

Great Service!
I bought a Karcher gas power washer a month or so ago, plus a number of accessories. Those are all great so far (I'm actually going to really start using it in a week or two) but my review isn't so much about the product, more so the fantastic customer service of Pressure Washers Direct.

I got the washer and a couple accessories first, then a week or so later got more accessories. They all shipped separately with tracking #s. All was good until I saw one of the tracks showed the delivery... more

Why Did I Wait?
The buying experience was very simple. The unit arrived on time. One issue is that the box was not marked to keep right side up. So when it arrived some fluid had run out of the unit and saturated the side of the box.

Easy assembly, about 30 minutes. Filled the oil, hooked it up and was washing down the pool deck in no time. The pressure was great!

I'm not sure I needed the extra power nozzle I ordered in addition to the unit. The ones that came with do the job. If I had known how easy... more

Karcher Pw's Unreliable
Used my new 3000 PSI PW about 3-4 hours and stopped to change positions. When I went to start again, it started spitting or pulsing instead of picking up and start pressure washing.

I am taking it to a warranty service center to have fixed or have the pump replaced. I had a Karcher 2700 psi unit 4 or 5 years ago that did the same thing. It was repaired 2 times, the 3rd time was told the pump was shot. I was reluctant to buy another Karcher, but according to the comments and your ratings I... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store

Product Expert
Pulsing is usually a problem in the water supply, not the pump. If there's not enough water getting to the pump it will wear out prematurely no matter how many times you repair or replace it.

The Owner's Manual for your unit says the garden hose needs to be at least 5/8" in diameter, and you have to have a water supply that consistently puts out at least 2.8 GPM (Page 5 tells you how to measure your water supply flow rate). A garden hose longer than 30 feet can also cut down on the amount of water reaching your pump.

If you use well water, the flow may have a hard time keeping up with that rate. You may also need to clean grit or debris out of the filter screen between the garden hose and the unit- that can cut down the flow rate as well.

"My order came in 3 days. Packaging was great, simple to put together. Put oil in motor, started easy. Was impressed for about 4 hours after use, then was depressed."
