Zoom on the Westinghouse ePX3050
In summary, the Westinghouse ePX3050 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
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 13 amp motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2030 PSI (roughly 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Westinghouse ePX3050's cleaning power of 3572.8 Cleaning Units.
The ePX3050 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 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D13.5 x W14 x H16.5 in, the Westinghouse ePX3050 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the ePX3050 convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 19 lbs. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features four solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The Westinghouse ePX3050 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 0.16 gal tank. As the Westinghouse ePX3050 doesn’t include a soap dilution mechanism, the user must provide a correctly diluted detergent before proceeding to use it. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
- Pressure hose: The included 15 ft ⌀25/64" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
