Zoom on the Westinghouse ePX3050
The Westinghouse ePX3050 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 13 amp motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2030 PSI (around 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the Westinghouse ePX3050 has a 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’s design prevents it from falling apart, since it is molded in the frame.
With a weight of only 19 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of four solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
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. The Westinghouse ePX3050 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 will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 15 ft ⌀25/64" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

The Westinghouse ePX3050's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Westinghouse ePX3050 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2030 PSI, the Westinghouse ePX3050 finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $150 and $180. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Realm BY02-BCMH with 2300 PSI.
- With a water flow of up to 1.76 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2005P, which can reach up to 1.8 GPM.
- With a rather impressive value of 3572.8 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the ePX3050 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Realm BY02-BCMH and its 4025 Cleaning Units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3500 and 4000 Cleaning Units, the Westinghouse ePX3050 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.
