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.
- Reaching a 2300 PSI max pressure output, the Powerhorse PPW2300 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $300 to $400 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX4800, which reaches up to 3200 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Greenworks GPW2200, which can reach up to 2.3 GPM.
- With 2760 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the PPW2300 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Greenworks GPW3000 and its 6000 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 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.
