Gas-powered pressure washers deliver a lot of cleaning power, but they’re not the best choice for all situations. Noise, weight, size and added maintenance make them a poor choice for cleaning fleets, using at home or carrying around to customer facilities and homes. To serve these needs, Vortexx now makes two electric power washers. They combine AR Pump’s best electric hardware with the corrosion-proof carts and clever design that make Vortexx a leading choice for people who depend on these machines for their living. If you need a better home cleaning system, or you have a business in auto detailing or heavy equipment cleaning, these may be exactly what you need.
VX50101E Electric Prosumer
This pressure washer bridges the gap between homeowners who want serious power and professionals who need a lightweight machine. The entire unit including the cart, pump, hose, and wand weighs just 75 lbs.
Power comes from a 1.7 HP AR610 120 volt induction motor that runs a triplex pump with ceramic plungers and industrial-grade seals. The maximum output is 1,350 PSI at 1.9 GPM (2,565 cleaning units.) Built-in GFCI protection prevents shorts when connected to any outlet, and thermal protection shuts off the motor before the pump overheats. It comes with a 35 ft. power cord and a 25-foot hose.
The convertible design lets you carry the pump system or move it around on a cart. A caddy has the mounts needed to carry the hoses, power cable, wand, and nozzles. Vortexx’s Tow & Stow handle keeps the unit compact during storage and transport.
Like Vortexx’s other pressure washers, this model is built on a frame made from bare aircraft-grade aluminum, so there’s no need to worry about flaking paint or rust. It rides on pneumatic tires, making it easy to move around on turf and uneven surfaces.
VX50202E Electric Professional
Take everything that makes the Prosumer great, add more power, and you get this electric pressure washer.
The VX50202E uses an AR630 TSS 2 HP induction motor that drives a triplex pump. This combination delivers 1,900 PSI at 2.1 GPM (3,990 cleaning units.) It has the same power cord and hose length as the prosumer.
Need a washer that can shift caked-on grease and oil, or remove stains from concrete? The entire unit is hot water ready, handling temperatures up to 180°F. The added heat melts away oils and petroleum products, cleaning better than the most powerful cold water pressure washers. There’s no onboard heater, so you’ll need to add one in-line with the water source.
If it’s compatible with a gas-powered Vortexx pressure washer, you can probably use it with these new electric models.
You can fit an 18 or 24-foot telescoping lance if you connect it to the hose with an M22X plug adapter. Add a U-shaped gutter adapter to the nozzle, and you can clean out gutters without getting on a ladder.
Do you mostly work on floors, cement, and decks? The heavy-duty surface cleaner can handle hot water, while the four nozzle deck cleaner makes quick work of cleaning wood surfaces.
Need to remove coatings? The sandblasting kit draws sand in with the water, delivering serious abrasion power without the dust of air-based systems.
Washing vehicles? The turbo foamer turns your pressure washer into a foam blaster, laying down a thick layer of snow foam soap.
The pumps are guaranteed for one year of use by AR, while the frame comes with a lifetime warranty from Vortexx.
