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’s design prevents it from falling apart, since it is molded in the frame.
With a weight of only 16.1 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. Because the WG602 is so lightweight, it doesn’t utilize wheels.
The Worx WG602 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand.

The Worx WG602's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Worx WG602 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- Reaching a 1700 PSI max pressure output, the Worx WG602 has an expected pressure value, compared to the other electric units in the $70 to $100 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the WEN PW22, which reaches up to 2100 PSI.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Sun Joe SPX1050, with a GPM of 1.58.
- The WG602, with its 2040 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the WEN PW22, which can reach up to 2730 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Worx WG602 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.
The bottom line
- Onboard storage
- High CU for the price
- Decent PSI for the price
