Description

Zoom on the Worx WG601

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

  • gentle cleaning of delicate surfaces, and low pressure cleaning of larger areas
  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, and removing stubborn stains

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

Power

The Worx WG601 in use

The Worx WG601

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13-amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 1500 PSI (almost 25 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 1800 Cleaning Units.

The WG601, an electric washer, gets going swiftly with a simple ON/OFF switch, making startup hassle-free. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Featuring a portable design and approximate dimensions of L16.9 x W12.5 x H11.9 in, the Worx WG601 underscores its dedication to mobility. The handle adds to the WG601 convenience of transport.

At just 15.6 lbs, this unit is incredibly lightweight, ensuring hassle-free mobility wherever you need it. This owes partly to its plastic frame, contributing to its lightweight design. While the WG601 may lack wheels, its lightweight build negates the necessity for them.

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: The unit features a 20 ft high-pressure hose that easily connects to ensure hassle-free setup. 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 table below shows you the 2 included nozzles and the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

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: Included with the Worx WG601 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as spray gun, power cord, pressure hose, nozzle cleaner and wand.

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, a device which can produce up to 1500 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $170-200 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3550 that can reach up to 2350 PSI.
  • In comparison to devices within the previously mentioned price range, this washer, with its 1.2 GPM, is on the lower spectrum of achievable water flow. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Sun Joe SPX3550 has the highest GPM of 1.8.
  • The WG601's Cleaning Units, 1800 CU (PSI X GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to electric devices of similar price. For those placing importance on maximum cleaning power, the Craftsman CMEPW2100 and its 2520 Cleaning Units offer one of the highest cleaning efficiencies among units in the same price range.

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.
