Zoom on the Excell EPW1792500
The Excell EPW1792500, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 179 cc (6 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (almost 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 5750 Cleaning Units.
The Rato R180-3 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.
Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the Excell EPW1792500 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 71 lbs. Its 179 cc Rato R180-3 engine and metal frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The EPW1792500 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 10" pneumatic wheels.
Along with the Excell EPW1792500 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Excell EPW1792500's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Excell EPW1792500 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Excell EPW1792500 with its 2500 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $300-400 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Stanley SXPW3425 with 3400 PSI.
- When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Predator 3100 has the highest GPM of 2.8.
- The EPW1792500 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 5750 CU (PSI x GPM). If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Briggs & Stratton 20505, which can reach up to 9520 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 5500 and 6000 Cleaning Units, the Excell EPW1792500 is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
