Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX2800

In a nutshell, the Westinghouse WPX2800 is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer that allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Westinghouse WPX2800 in use

The Westinghouse WPX2800

Its aluminum axial cam pump, which utilizes a 173 cc (5 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (almost 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 6440 Cleaning Units.

The Westinghouse engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.3 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L24 x W19.5 x H41.5 in, the Westinghouse WPX2800 offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX2800 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 64 lbs. Its 173 cc Westinghouse engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the WPX2800 remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

Along with the Westinghouse WPX2800 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 1 gal tank. However, since the Westinghouse WPX2800 does not feature a soap dilution mechanism, you'll have to make sure your detergent is correctly diluted before use. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (2800 PSI rating) can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included ergonomic EnduraGrasp spray gun.
  • Nozzles: The table below shows you the 4 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
