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
With a powerful 212 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Westinghouse WPX2700's cleaning power of 6210 Cleaning Units.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Westinghouse engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon is used to store gasoline.
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.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 63 lbs. Its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. The WPX2700 can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.
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: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. It must be noted that the Westinghouse WPX2700 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (2700 PSI rating) is facilitated by 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: Stay prepared for any job with Westinghouse WPX2700's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
- Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
- Accessories: Included with the Westinghouse WPX2700 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as oil, spray gun, funnel, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and tool kit.
- Emissions: The Westinghouse WPX2700 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. This means that this pressure washer can be bought and sold 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.
- The Westinghouse WPX2700 with its 2700 PSI achieves a lower pressure value, compared to other gas-powered pressure washers in the $250-300 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Powerhorse 89897 that can reach up to 3200 PSI.
- In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Powerhorse 89897, that can deliver up to 2.6 GPM.
- The WPX2700 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 6210 CU (PSI x GPM). When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the Powerhorse 89897 and its 8320 Cleaning Units.
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.
