The Westinghouse WPX2700 is a gas-powered pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2700 PSI and flow of 2.3 GPM. (Read full specs)
Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX2700
The Westinghouse WPX2700 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
The Westinghouse WPX2700's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by an impressive 212 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 2700 PSI (approximately 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Westinghouse WPX2700 thus has a cleaning power of 6210 Cleaning Units.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Westinghouse engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon.
Design & Handling
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L21 x W19.5 x H39 in, the Westinghouse WPX2700 offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX2700 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of 63 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and its steel tubing frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the WPX2700 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
Along with the Westinghouse WPX2700 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 0.5 gal tank. However, since the Westinghouse WPX2700 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (2700 PSI rating), which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included ergonomic EnduraGrasp spray gun.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

- Onboard storage: The Westinghouse WPX2700 features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation) and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
- Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Westinghouse WPX2700 comes with spray gun, tool kit, oil, funnel, pressure hose and nozzle cleaner.
- Emissions: The Westinghouse WPX2700 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this pressure washer is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.
The Westinghouse WPX2700's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Westinghouse WPX2700 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2700 PSI, the Westinghouse WPX2700 finds itself in the expected pressure range among gas-powered units that cost between $225 and $255. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the PowerStroke PS80544B that can reach up to 3100 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. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the PowerStroke PS80544B, with 2.5 GPM.
- As the WPX2700 has a total of 6210 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), it finds itself in the average cleaning efficiency range for similarly priced gas-powered units. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the PowerStroke PS80544B, which can reach up to 7750 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the Westinghouse WPX2700 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
