Zoom on the Powermate PM2100

In summary, the Powermate PM2100 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning

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 PM2100 in use

The Powermate PM2100

Powered by a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2100 PSI (around 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.35 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). Combined, these values mean that the Powermate PM2100 has a cleaning power of 2835 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PM2100 gets easily started by a simple 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 D12.1 x W15.1 x H32.2 in, the Powermate PM2100 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the PM2100 convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 22.4 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 6" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The Powermate PM2100 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable 0.26 gal tank. To add detergent to the water, the adjustable nozzle must be disconnected from the trigger gun.
  • Pressure hose: Using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan, the included 20 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (6380 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 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 PM2100'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 PM2100 comes with an owner's manual and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get power cord, spray gun, pressure hose, wand and nozzle cleaner.

  • The Powermate PM2100, which can reach a PSI of 2100, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $170 and $200. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Realm BY02-BIMK with a PSI of 2600.
  • As this washer can produce a flow of water of 1.35 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned 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 Sun Joe SPX2005P, that can deliver up to 1.8 GPM.
  • As the PM2100 has a total of 2835 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced electric units.
