New Worx Hydroshot Portable Power Cleaner Increases Run Time, PSI Rating With 40 Volt Max Battery
The new WORX® Hydroshot™ Portable Power Cleaner now features a 40V MAX battery that increases the portable cleaner’s psi rating and run time. It follows on the heels of the popular 20V model, which was introduced in spring 2017.
Hydroshot is a versatile power cleaner that connects to fresh water sources through a standard garden hose or its 20 ft. accessory hose with intake (included) that draws water from lakes, rivers, pools or buckets. An adjustable float on the hose acts like a bobber to keep the intake from touching bottom. Hydroshot also connects to most 2-liter bottles with a 1 in. opening through a Bottle Cap Connector accessory (WA4038, $6.99).
“Unlike conventional pressure washers, we saw a need for a light duty portable power cleaner that was safe to use and could effectively tackle jobs at home, or in remote areas,” said WORX Product Manager, Brandon Martin. “By increasing Hydroshot’s battery voltage to 40V, homeowners benefit by getting longer run times with greater psi to manage a variety of tasks.”
In fact, WORX Hydroshot produces more than five times the water pressure from a garden hose/nozzle combination, based on an 60 psi rating. At 335 max psi, the 40V Hydroshot is ideal for washing the car, truck or SUV; hosing down the deck or patio and washing windows. Yet, it’s gentle enough to water flowers, vegetable gardens and shrubs.
The pump-driven, dual-system control nozzle features two operating settings: watering and power cleaning. The nozzle’s two-speed trigger delivers water pressure ratings of 72 to 94 psi (watering) and 200 to 335 psi for power cleaning. Hydoshot’s built-in pump is a water miser by only pumping 1/2 gallon-per-minute.
Rotate the five-pattern spray nozzle to adjust from 0º, 15º, 25º, 40º or shower settings. Choose gentle shower; then rotate the head for targeted high-powered rinsing. Select the wider spray pattern to remove dirt or pollen from windows or rinse a boat’s hull between normal wash cycles.
WORX Hydroshot is powered by a 40V Max 2.0 Ah battery. This battery has an LED power gauge. By pressing the battery’s red keypad, the power gauge indicates how many bars are left before it needs recharging. Run time varies based on the selected operating mode and speed. When the nozzle is in the low shower spray pattern, it could run for up to 45 minutes.
Hydroshot includes a short and long extension wand, 40V MAX, 2.0 Ah battery, 5-hour charger, 20-ft. hose accessory, Bottle Cap Connector and carrying bag. The powered water nozzle is covered by the WORX three year warranty.
