Zoom on the Powerhorse PPW2300
In a nutshell, the Powerhorse PPW2300 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 14 amp brushless motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (almost 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2760 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PPW2300 is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

With a weight of only 45.5 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 10" never-flat wheels.

The Powerhorse PPW2300's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Powerhorse PPW2300 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Powerhorse PPW2300, a device which can produce up to 2300 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $300-400 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 SPX8000-PRO with 3200 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 Greenworks GPW2200, with a GPM of 2.3.
- The 2760 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the PPW2300 sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Greenworks GPW3000 with its 3300 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the Powerhorse PPW2300 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.
