Description

Zoom on the Powermate PM1800

In summary, the Powermate PM1800 is a light duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Powermate PM1800 in use

The Powermate PM1800

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (almost 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM. PSI is the maximum value and can usually be reached only at initial discharge. Under typical load, the unit's rated pressure is 1450 PSI. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 1885 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Powermate PM1800'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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D9.9 x W12.7 x H27.5 in, the Powermate PM1800 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the PM1800 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 16 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. A set of two 5" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

Along with the Powermate PM1800 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. To add detergent to the water, the adjustable nozzle must be disconnected from the trigger gun.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (5220 PSI rating) can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: A dedicated slot allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzle: an adjustable nozzle is included. It lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).

Other Features

Some of the accessories of the Powermate PM1800

Some of the included accessories

  • Auto-Stop Switch: This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with Powermate PM1800's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: The Powermate PM1800 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, wand and spray gun.
