Description

Zoom on the Greenworks GPW1501

The Greenworks GPW1501 is a light duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces

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 Greenworks GPW1501 in use

The Greenworks GPW1501

Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (roughly 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

The GPW1501 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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 D10 x W12 x H17.7 in, the Greenworks GPW1501 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the GPW1501 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 18.4 lbs, it is very easily carried around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. Because the GPW1501 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.

Main Features

  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a dedicated slot.
  • Nozzles: The 2 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 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 WEN PW19 has the highest GPM of 1.6.
  • The GPW1501's Cleaning Units, 1800 CU (PSI x GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to electric devices of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW19 with its 3200 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
