Zoom on the Pulsar W31H19
In a nutshell, the Pulsar W31H19 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a powerful 208 cc (7 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (almost 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Ducar engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.3 gallon.
Design & Handling
The Pulsar W31H19 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20 x W28 x H38 in. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the W31H19 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 75 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 208 cc Ducar engine and metal frame. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the W31H19 remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.
The Pulsar W31H19's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. However, since the Pulsar W31H19 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 30 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The Pulsar W31H19's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Pulsar W31H19 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 3100 PSI max pressure output, the Pulsar W31H19 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other gas-powered units in the $300 to $400 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 Westinghouse WPX3400 with a PSI of 3400.
- Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.5 is in the average compared to other devices in its price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, which can reach up to 2.8 GPM.
- With a rather impressive value of 7750 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the W31H19 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Westinghouse WPX3400 with its 8840 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7500 and 8000 Cleaning Units, the Pulsar W31H19 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
