Zoom on the Pulsar PWE2019
The Pulsar PWE2019 is a medium duty pressure washer, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
The Pulsar PWE2019's axial pump, powered by a 13 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (approximately 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Pulsar PWE2019 thus has a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PWE2019 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
The Pulsar PWE2019 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19.5 x W17.5 x H34 in. The robust and sturdy steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PWE2019 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 33 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 9" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

The Pulsar PWE2019's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Pulsar PWE2019 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Pulsar PWE2019, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2000, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $195 to $255 price range. 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 Sun Joe SPX4600 with a PSI of 3000.
- In the aforementioned price range, the 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS, which can reach up to 1.7 GPM.
- Boasting with 3200 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the PWE2019 is one of the most efficient devices in its respective price range.
