Zoom on the ECHO PWE-1800

The ECHO PWE-1800 is a light duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach 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

Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (roughly 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in 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. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. 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 ECHO PWE-1800's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description 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 20 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand. 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 nozzle cleaner, wand, turbo lance, spray gun, pressure hose and power cord.

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.

  • With its 1800 PSI max pressure output, the ECHO PWE-1800 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $120-150 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse ePX3500, which reaches up to 2500 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Westinghouse ePX3500, with 1.76 GPM.
  • With a rather impressive value of 2340 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the PWE-1800 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Pulsar PWE2001V and its 3200 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.
