Description

Zoom on the Greenworks GPW1602

In summary, the Greenworks GPW1602 is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • 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 GPW1602 in use

The Greenworks GPW1602

With a 13 amp universal motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 1600 PSI (roughly 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Greenworks GPW1602's cleaning power of 1920 Cleaning Units.

The GPW1602 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 in, the Greenworks GPW1602 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the GPW1602 convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 19 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. Because the GPW1602 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Greenworks GPW1602 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun. As the Greenworks GPW1602 doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it.
  • Pressure hose: The 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a dedicated slot.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 2 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Greenworks GPW1602's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Greenworks GPW1602 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With its 1600 PSI max pressure output, the Greenworks GPW1602 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $60-90 price range. As for the device with the most powerful water stream, in this price range, one of the top products is the WEN PW19 with 2000 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the WEN PW19, which can reach up to 1.6 GPM.
  • With 1920 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the GPW1602 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the WEN PW19 and its 3200 Cleaning Units.

    Very disappointed in this item. Found it easy to use. Found it to be lightweight. But after using it once a year to power wash my porch on the 4th year it would not start. It would briefly run and then stop. Very poor quality and very very poor customer service

    + PROS: Lightweight,worked fine while it was working, decent quality
    - CONS: After three times being used just to power wash my porch-once a year- it wouldn't turn on. It would turn on briefly and then turn off. Very poor customer service from the company
