Zoom on the Worx WG602
In a nutshell, the Worx WG602 is a light duty pressure washer that allows:
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
With a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 1700 PSI (roughly 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values as per PWMA testing standards), resulting in the Worx WG602's cleaning power of 2040 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Worx WG602'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 WG602 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the WG602 convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 16.1 lbs. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Because the WG602 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.
