Description

Zoom on the Worx WG601

In summary, the Worx WG601 is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The Worx WG601 in use

The Worx WG601

Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (roughly 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Worx WG601's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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.

With a weight of only 15.6 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. 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

The Worx WG601's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description 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: This washer comes with an easy-to-connect 20 ft high-pressure hose. But, there is no proper storage solution designed for it (no reel, strap or hook).
  • Spray gun and wand: The device comes with a classic ergonomic spray gun and a wand.
  • Nozzles: The 2 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

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: The Worx WG601 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, power cord, wand, spray gun and nozzle cleaner.

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 $80 and $110. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX with a PSI of 2100.
  • In comparison to other devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), has one of the lower GPM values. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX2688-MAX has the highest GPM of 1.8.
  • The 1800 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the WG601 result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced electric units. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the WEN PW19, which can reach up to 3200 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 1500 and 2000 Cleaning Units, the Worx WG601 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
