Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX2700e
In a nutshell, the Westinghouse WPX2700e is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
With a 13 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 2400 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM, resulting in the Westinghouse WPX2700e's cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.
The WPX2700e 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
The Westinghouse WPX2700e is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19 x W18.5 x H37.5 in. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX2700e convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Since the unit weighs only 33.1 lbs, it is very easily carried around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 10" never-flat wheels.
The Westinghouse WPX2700e's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

The Westinghouse WPX2700e's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Westinghouse WPX2700e compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Westinghouse WPX2700e, which can reach up to 2700 PSI, has one of the higher pressure outputs of the electric units that cost between $255 and $300. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3200e with 3200 PSI.
- With a maximum GPM of 1.76 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Greenworks GPW2200, with a GPM of 2.3.
- In comparison to other electric units of similar price, the 2640 Cleaning Units of the WPX2700e are average. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Pulsar PWE2000 and its 3200 Cleaning Units.
