Zoom on the ECHO PWE-1800

In a nutshell, the ECHO PWE-1800 is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The ECHO PWE-1800 in use

The ECHO PWE-1800

The ECHO PWE-1800's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The ECHO PWE-1800 thus has a cleaning power of 2340 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PWE-1800 is started simply 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 D14.3 x W15 x H32 in, the ECHO PWE-1800 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the PWE-1800 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 26 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 6" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The ECHO PWE-1800 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.2 gal tank. Detergent is automatically added to the water when the adjustable wand is set to low pressure mode and to the 'Pencil Stream' pattern.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand can be easily stored in a side hook. ECHO's adjustable wand has two positions: 'IN' for high pressure spray and 'OUT' for low pressure (detergent application). Once a pressure mode is selected, the nozzle head can be twisted to choose the spray pattern.

Other Features

The specs of the ECHO PWE-1800

The ECHO PWE-1800

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: The ECHO PWE-1800 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, turbo lance, nozzle cleaner, power cord, wand and spray gun.

The ECHO PWE-1800's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the ECHO PWE-1800 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The ECHO PWE-1800, a device which can produce up to 1800 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $170-200 price range. 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 SPX3500 that can reach up to 2300 PSI.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX4001 has the highest GPM of 1.76.
  • The 2340 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the PWE-1800 sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Pulsar PWE2000, which can reach up to 3200 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the ECHO PWE-1800 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
