Zoom on the Black+Decker BEPW1850

In a nutshell, the Black+Decker BEPW1850 is a light duty pressure washer that allows:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

The Black+Decker BEPW1850 in use

The Black+Decker BEPW1850

The Black+Decker BEPW1850's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1850 PSI (approximately 31 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (CETA-certified values). The Black+Decker BEPW1850 thus has a cleaning power of 2220 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BEPW1850 gets easily started by a simple 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 D11 x W11.9 x H24.1 in, the Black+Decker BEPW1850 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.

Standing at only 22 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 6" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Black+Decker BEPW1850 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is included with the unit. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 3 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

  • With its 1850 PSI max pressure output, the Black+Decker BEPW1850 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $120-150 price range.
