Zoom on the WEN PW19
In summary, the WEN PW19 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 13 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 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). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3200 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the WEN PW19's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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.
With a weight of only 14.3 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. This light weight compensates for the fact that the PW19 doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.
The WEN PW19 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed 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: The unit 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: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the WEN PW19 also comes with power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, wand and spray gun.
