Zoom on the WEN PW22

The WEN PW22 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

Powered by a 13.5 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2100 PSI (around 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the WEN PW22 has a cleaning power of 2730 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the PW22 is started simply 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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D10.5 x W10.5 x H31 in, the WEN PW22 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the PW22 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 26 lbs, it is very easily carried around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. A set of two 6" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

Along with the WEN PW22 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.26 gal tank. Detergent is automatically added to the water when the adjustable wand is set to low pressure mode.
  • Pressure hose: The 23 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its versatile wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. 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).

Other Features

  • 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 PW22 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, nozzle cleaner, power cord, spray gun and wand.

The WEN PW22's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the WEN PW22 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The WEN PW22, reaching a PSI of up to 2100, is one of the more powerful electric units in $100-150 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 Realm BIOP with a PSI of 2400.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.3 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX3200 has the highest GPM of 1.76.
  • With the PW22's 2730 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to electric units of similar price. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Realm BY02-BCMT and its 3675 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the WEN PW22 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.
