Greenworks Targets Professionals Who Need An Electric Pressure Washer
With California banning small gas engines that run outdoor power equipment starting in 2024, professionals need to consider alternatives. And it’s not just regulation as OPE users around the country consider switching away from gas engines. One sector that’s been fairly quiet on the Pro side is pressure washers. After all, we’ve had electric pressure washers for a very long time. However, legitimate commercial-grade options are few and far between. The Greenworks 2500 PSI industrial electric pressure washer aims to fill the gap.
Greenworks 2500 PSI Industrial Electric Pressure Washer Performance
Greenworks is near the top of the performance scale when it comes to water pressure on an electric model. Its brushless motor and pump combine to produce up to 2500 PSI with 1.2 GPM of water flow. When you’re working with less pressure, it can deliver up to 2.1 GPM at 100 PSI. Better yet, these PWMA-certified values, so you can have confidence the machine is actually delivering that level of cleaning power.
Considering Greenworks has a 3000 PSI electric pressure washer, that might leave you wondering what makes this more appropriate for commercial work. Digging deeper, we find out.
A handful of pressure washers available use 14-amp brushless motors to great effect and moved us to higher pressure levels. While they’re much more widespread in cordless tools, corded models can still take advantage of the higher power, longer life, and lower maintenance concerns. With professionals putting far more hours on their pressure washers than homeowners, it’s no surprise to see Greenworks make a heavy-duty brushless move.
Then there’s the pump. One of the easiest ways to tell who a pressure washer is targeting is to look at the pump. Homeowner models go with an axial pump. They’re less expensive and can provide years of reliable service for low-hour machines. Professional models use a higher quality triplex pump and that’s what Greenworks chose. With its ceramic pistons, you can expect a long service life even with the more demanding hours a commercial pressure washer has to endure. In fact, this pump is rated for 1000 hours of use.
Greenworks 2500 PSI Industrial Electric Pressure Washer Design
Greenworks goes with a relatively simple, yet highly effective physical design. Surrounding the motor, pump, and detergent is a steel tube frame that provides easy access to the sides. The front bumper doubles as a lifting bar with a grip to help you load it on the tailgate of a truck. It also serves to help the pressure washer stand up vertically, taking up a smaller footprint on your trailer.
Hose and Wand
Greenworks includes the standard 15°, 25°, 40°, Turbo, and Soap nozzle set that stores on the plate between the handles. Using a quick connect interface, they attach to a 36-inch wand.
The business end connects to the pressure washer with a 25-foot steel braided rubber hose that gives you better durability than the hoses that come on residential models.
If you’re using a detergent as part of your cleaning process, Greenworks provides a generous 1-gallon tank. The nice thing about that capacity is you can fit an entire 1-gallon bottle of Simple Green or whatever you’re using in there.
- Simple push-button starting
- 35-foot cord with in-line GFCI
- No gas engine noise, emissions, or maintenance
