Zoom on the Greenworks PW18HYB

In summary, the Greenworks PW18HYB is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Greenworks PW18HYB in use

The Greenworks PW18HYB

The Greenworks PW18HYB's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.1 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards). The Greenworks PW18HYB thus has a cleaning power of 1980 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Greenworks PW18HYB's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

The main draw of the Greenworks PW18HYB is that it is a hybrid pressure washer. Thus, in addition to its corded operation, the unit can also operate cordlessly on batteries, which makes it ideal for cleaning areas with no AC hook up.

For this, you'll need two of Greenworks' pro-grade 60V lithium-ion batteries. Neither these batteries nor their charger are included with the unit. Note that when operating on battery, the PW18HYB max PSI drops to 1500 and max GPM to 1.0, for a total of 1500 Cleaning Units.

Design & Handling

The Greenworks PW18HYB offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D18 x W20.4 x H25.3 in. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PW18HYB convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of only 26.5 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 8" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Greenworks PW18HYB in use

The Greenworks PW18HYB

The Greenworks PW18HYB's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable tank. The detergent is diluted with a 7:1 ratio by the Greenworks PW18HYB's automatic soap dilution mechanism. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Greenworks PW18HYB's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Greenworks PW18HYB compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

Note: Even though we couldn’t list its price on this page, our research indicates that some retailers sell this unit around $200.

  • The Greenworks PW18HYB, a device which can produce up to 1800 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $200-220 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4600 that can reach up to 3000 PSI.
  • This washer, with a GPM of 1.1 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P, that can deliver up to 1.7 GPM.
  • The PW18HYB ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 1980 CU (PSI x GPM). If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the AR Blue Clean BCXP22300P and its 3910 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 electric washers between 1500 and 2000 Cleaning Units, the Greenworks PW18HYB is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
