Description

Zoom on the Worx WG601

In a nutshell, the Worx WG601 is a light duty pressure washer that allows:

  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Worx WG601 in use

The Worx WG601

The Worx WG601's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (approximately 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Worx WG601 thus has a cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

The WG601 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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of L16.9 x W12.5 x H11.9 in, the Worx WG601 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the WG601 convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 15.6 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Even though the WG601 doesn’t have any wheels, their absence is fully compensated by this light weight.

Main Features

The Worx WG601 in use

The Worx WG601

Along with the Worx WG601 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching a foam cannon (not included) to the end of the gun.
  • Pressure hose: An easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose is included with the unit. However, it doesn't feature any proper storage solution for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: This unit includes a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
  • Nozzles: The 2 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

Other Features

The specs of the Worx WG601

The Worx WG601

  • Onboard storage: The Worx WG601 features a handy storage tray, which allows you to neatly store all its nozzles. The storage solution offered by this model is quite singular, as it allows storing the nozzles directly on the gun, instead of on the unit.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the Worx WG601 comes with pressure hose, wand, power cord, nozzle cleaner and spray gun.

Product Video

The Worx WG601's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Worx WG601 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The Worx WG601 and its 1500 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $170 and $200. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX3550, which reaches up to 2350 PSI.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3550, which can reach up to 1.8 GPM.
  • With 1800 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the WG601 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Kärcher K4 and its 2850 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 1500 and 2000 Cleaning Units, the Worx WG601 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.
