GreenWorks GPW1600 pressure washer review

This electric pressure washer from Green Works costs among the least of our tested batch, and in certain ways you get what you pay for. It comes with only three nozzles: turbo, soap, and a 40-degree nozzle that’s suitable for light cleaning. Its included soap bottle is the least convenient design because it attaches to the nozzle assembly. The hose must be screwed in at both ends. And there are wheels but with a catch–you need to either bend way over or carry the unit by its handle. The trigger lock must be manually set. The power cord, as with most electrics we’ve tested, needs to be manually wrapped around the unit.


Moving around can be cumbersome. Very easy to operate, just plug it in. Easy hose storage. Cord is very easy to wrap and store. Wand not as convenient to remove. Easy to use and read on-off switch.

GreenWorks GPW1600 pressure washer Test Results

The GreenWorks GPW1600 is part of the Pressure washer test program. In our lab tests, Pressure washer models like the GPW1600 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cleaning: Versatility and efficiency in cleaning a range of surfaces. The better performers have multiple spray patterns that can cover various cleaning chores, from light, superficial cleaning to deep cleaning of concrete, decking, and other hard-to-clean surfaces.

Power: A combination of pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (psi), and flow, measured in gallons per minute (gpm). Higher pressure results in better cleaning of a given surface; coupled with a higher flow as well, you’ll get the job done the fastest.

Noise: A combination of measurements, based on dBA, reflecting the proximity of the operator to the pressure washer. While our Noise score averages measurements taken close by the machine and at the end of the hose’s typical reach, we strongly strongly recommend hearing protection for working close by a gas-powered model in particular.
