Zoom on the Worx WG604
In a nutshell, the Worx WG604 is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
Using a 13 amp universal motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 1600 PSI (roughly 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 2080 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Worx WG604'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
The Worx WG604 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WG604 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 28.5 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 8" never-flat wheels.
Along with the Worx WG604 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a 0.33 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.

The Worx WG604's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Worx WG604 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The Worx WG604, which can achieve a PSI of up to 1600, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $80 to $110 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2700-MAX with 2100 PSI.
- This washer, with a GPM of 1.3 (gallons per minute) has a somewhat lower water flow value compared to 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 SPX2700-MAX, with a GPM of 1.65.
- With the WG604's 2080 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to electric units of similar price. 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.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2000 and 2500 Cleaning Units, the Worx WG604 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.
