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:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • cleaning of painted and frail 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). 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. The Powermate PM1800 thus has a cleaning power of 1885 Cleaning Units.

The PM1800 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an 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.

Because the device weighs just 16 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 5" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

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: A neat storage for the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (5220 PSI rating) is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • 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 allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Powermate PM1800 also comes with pressure hose, nozzle cleaner, spray gun, power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water) and wand.

  • The Powermate PM1800, with a maximum pressure output of 1800 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering electric units in $120 to $150 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX that can reach up to 2100 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Westinghouse ePX3050, that can deliver up to 1.76 GPM.
  • The PM1800 has 1885 Cleaning Units, 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 Westinghouse ePX3050 and its 3572.8 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
