The WEN PW19 is an electric pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2000 PSI and flow of 1.6 GPM. (Read full specs)
Zoom on the WEN PW19
The WEN PW19 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 13 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of 2000 PSI (roughly 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the WEN PW19's cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
The PW19 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 36 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L15.8 x W9 x H12 in, the WEN PW19 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the PW19 convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
Because the device weighs just 14.3 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. Because the PW19 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.
The WEN PW19's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun.
- Pressure hose: This washer comes with an easy-to-connect 16.5 ft high-pressure hose. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
- Spray gun and wand: The device comes with a classic ergonomic spray gun and a versatile wand. The adjustable wand lets you adjust the spray pattern from a full fan spray (widest spray width) to a direct stream spray (narrowest spray width).
- Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: The WEN PW19 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), nozzle cleaner, power cord, spray gun and wand.
The WEN PW19's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the WEN PW19 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Able to deliver a maximum pressure of 2000 PSI, the WEN PW19 is one of the electric products that produce an above average water pressure, in the $80 to $100 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 WEN PW20 that can reach up to 2030 PSI.
- 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 maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the WEN PW20, with a GPM of 1.76.
- The PW19, 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 are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW20 with its 3572.8 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 electric washers between 3000 and 3500 Cleaning Units, the WEN PW19 is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
