Zoom on the Greenworks PW18HYB

The Greenworks PW18HYB is a light duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

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

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

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). Together, the values result in 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

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

Because the device weighs just 26.5 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. A set of two 8" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Greenworks PW18HYB in use

The Greenworks PW18HYB

The Greenworks PW18HYB comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
