Zoom on the Black+Decker BEPW1700

In summary, the Black+Decker BEPW1700 is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Black+Decker BEPW1700 in use

The Black+Decker BEPW1700

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1700 PSI (almost 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.

The BEPW1700 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D10.8 x W11.1 x H19.4 in, the Black+Decker BEPW1700 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BEPW1700 convenience of transport.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 19.4 lbs. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Even though the BEPW1700 doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.

Main Features

  • The Black+Decker BEPW1700 and its 1700 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $100 and $130. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX, with a GPM of 1.8.
  • The 2040 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the BEPW1700 sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW1900 with its 3200 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
