Zoom on the Pulsar PWE2019
In a nutshell, the Pulsar PWE2019 is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 13 amp motor, its axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Pulsar PWE2019 has a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
The PWE2019 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
The Pulsar PWE2019 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19.5 x W17.5 x H34 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the PWE2019 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 33 lbs. 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 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.

- With its 2000 PSI max pressure output, the Pulsar PWE2019 is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $140-170 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 Realm BY03-VBP-WTR that can reach up to 2400 PSI.
- The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the higher values found in 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 SPX2866-MAX, that can deliver up to 1.8 GPM.
- The PWE2019, with its 3200 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR and its 4200 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3000 and 3500 Cleaning Units, the Pulsar PWE2019 is on the average side of the price range.
