Description

Zoom on the Powermate PM1800

In a nutshell, the Powermate PM1800 is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • targeted spot cleaning for hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and thoroughly removing stubborn stains
  • soft cleaning of delicate surfaces, and gentle cleaning for larger areas with low pressure
  • using cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces to remove residue

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

Powered by a 13-amp universal motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 1800 PSI (around 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Although the provided PSI represents the maximum achievable value, it's typically only reached at initial discharge. Under normal operating conditions, the unit has a rated pressure of 1450 PSI. With these values combined, the Powermate PM1800 boasts a cleaning power of 1885 Cleaning Units.

As an electric pressure washer, the PM1800's motor is effortlessly activated with a simple ON/OFF switch, ensuring convenient operation. 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 priotirizes mobility one of its key features. The handle adds to the PM1800 convenience of transport.

Weighing in at a mere 16 lbs, this unit is designed for effortless portability and convenience. Thanks in part to its plastic frame, it remains lightweight. In addition to its lightweight build, the inclusion of two 5" never-flat wheels ensures easy mobility and handling.

Main Features

The Powermate PM1800's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description 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: With a set of convenient hooks, the unit offers a practical solution for maintaining workspace order, allowing the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (5220 PSI rating) to be neatly stored when idle.
  • 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).

  • When measured against items within the price range mentioned earlier, this washer, with its 1.3 GPM, falls on the lower end of achievable water flow rates.

  • In comparison to other electric units of similar price, the 1885 Cleaning Units of the PM1800 are average. 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 Craftsman CMEPW1800 and its 2160 Cleaning Units.
