Description

Remember when your driveway wasn’t covered with a layer of dirt and grime? The WEN 2800 PSI Pressure Washer blasts away unwanted filth to bring back the clean and pristine surface hiding underneath. (source: WEN (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the WEN PW2800

The WEN PW2800 is a medium to heavy 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
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Using a 173 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (roughly 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 6440 Cleaning Units.

A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s engine.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.3 gallon.

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D26 x W19.5 x H39.5 in, the WEN PW2800 provides great mobility. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the PW2800 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 61 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 173 cc engine and steel frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the PW2800 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

The WEN PW2800's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.25 gal tank. The WEN PW2800 is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its stainless steel wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

  • With its 2800 PSI max pressure output, the WEN PW2800 is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $240-300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3200 with 3200 PSI.
  • Considering its water flow, this washer, with a GPM (gallons per minute) of 2.3 is in the average compared to other devices in its price range.
