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 and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of 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

The Powermate PM1800's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). The Powermate PM1800 thus has a cleaning power of 2340 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. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 5" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The Powermate PM1800 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a dedicated slot.
  • 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: The Powermate PM1800 features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the Powermate PM1800 are also the owner's manual and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, spray gun, pressure hose and nozzle cleaner.

The Powermate PM1800's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Powermate PM1800 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Powermate PM1800, with a maximum pressure output of 1800 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering electric units in $100 to $130 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Realm BY02-VBW-WT, which reaches up to 2100 PSI.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX has the highest GPM of 1.8.
  • The PM1800 has 2340 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), which can be considered low in comparison to other electric devices of this price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX and its 3690 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Powermate PM1800 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
