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 and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 179 cc (6 hp) engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2500 PSI (around 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Excell EPW1792500 has 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. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.
Weighing 71 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 179 cc Rato R180-3 engine and metal frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. However, the two 10" pneumatic wheels allow the EPW1792500 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
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: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable 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 and its 2500 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $300 and $400. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Stanley SXPW3425 that can reach up to 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. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Lifan LFQ3370, that can deliver up to 3 GPM.
- 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 you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 5200 and 6300 Cleaning Units, the Excell EPW1792500 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.
