Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX2800

In summary, the Westinghouse WPX2800 is a medium to heavy duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail 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

Using a 173 cc (5 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 2800 PSI (roughly 47 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 6440 Cleaning Units.

The Westinghouse engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.3 gallon.

Design & Handling

The Westinghouse WPX2800 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L24 x W19.5 x H41.5 in. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX2800 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 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

The Westinghouse WPX2800's package includes a spray gun, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 1 gal tank. It must be noted that the Westinghouse WPX2800 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose (2800 PSI rating) can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • 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.

The Westinghouse WPX2800's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Westinghouse WPX2800 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Westinghouse WPX2800, with a maximum pressure output of 2800 PSI, has an average pressure output, when considering gas-powered units in $240 to $300 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3200, which reaches up to 3200 PSI.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer, which can reach 2.3, can be considered in the average. 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 Excell EPW2123100, with 2.8 GPM.
  • With the WPX2800's 6440 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to gas-powered units of similar price. 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 Excell EPW2123100 and its 8680 Cleaning Units.
