The Powerhorse PPW2000 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- 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.
The Powerhorse PPW2000's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (approximately 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer).

The Powerhorse PPW2000's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Powerhorse PPW2000 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Powerhorse PPW2000, a device which can produce up to 2000 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $195-255 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4600 with 3000 PSI.
- 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. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the AR Blue Clean BC383HS, with a GPM of 1.7.
- With the PPW2000's 2400 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to electric units of similar price. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Pulsar PWE2019 and its 3200 Cleaning Units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Powerhorse PPW2000 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
