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 fragile surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 14 amp brushless motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Powerhorse PPW2300's cleaning power of 2760 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Powerhorse PPW2300'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.
Design & Handling
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W19 x H36.5 in, the Powerhorse PPW2300 offers great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PPW2300 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 45.5 lbs. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 10" never-flat wheels.
The Powerhorse PPW2300's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
