Power

The Greenworks PW18HYB in use

The Greenworks PW18HYB

Using a 13-amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (roughly 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.1 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards). When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 1980 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the PW18HYB initiates operation effortlessly with a straightforward 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 hand truck design of the Greenworks PW18HYB ensures effortless movement and transportation. The sturdy steel tubing frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PW18HYB convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

This unit's weight of 26.5 lbs makes it a breeze to carry around, perfect for on-the-go cleaning tasks. Adding to its lightweight construction, two 8" never-flat wheels are included, simplifying mobility and transport.
