Greenworks GPW2700 Pressure Washer Review

The Greenworks GPW2700 is the most powerful electric pressure washer in the residential category. It’s also one of the most expensive, but that’s fair considering what you get and the fact that it’s covered by an industry-leading 10-year motor warranty.

The GPW2700 can be unboxed and ready to use in about 20 minutes. Some assembly is required, and you will need a Phillips screwdriver to complete the process (it’s also helpful to have a box cutter to remove the packing materials).

In the box, you’ll find the following items:

  • (1) Greenworks GPW2700 electric pressure washer
  • (1) ProPulse high-pressure hose (25 ft.)
  • (1) Rear-entry spray gun
  • (1) Steel wand (16”)
  • (5) Quick-connect nozzles (15°, 25°, 40°, soap, turbo)
  • (1) Accessory dashboard
  • (1) Spray gun holster
  • (2) Power cord hangers
  • (6) Screws
  • (2) Hand knobs
  • (1) Instruction manual

The pressure washer comes out of the box in two main pieces: the base (i.e. the lower part of the frame that holds the motor and pump) and the handle. To connect the two, the handle simply slides onto the base and secures into place with the two included hand knobs.

From there, the accessory pieces need to be installed. The accessory dashboard and spray gun holster slide together at the top of the handle and are secured using four of the included screws. The power cord hangers mount on the back of the base, below the motor, using the remaining two screws.

After that, the accessories can be put together and mounted. Screw the wand onto the spray gun; then, the spray gun sits in the holster on the left, the hose hangs from the hanger on the right and the nozzles are held in the rubber grommets along the top.


The GPW2700 is the flagship pressure washer from Greenworks’ Pro series, a developing product line of professional-grade equipment for homeowners. Though it’s not as heavy-duty as a true commercial-use pressure washer, it’s in the top three for a residential-use electric unit.

The GPW2700 has an 89% recommendation rate (based on 200+ verified reviews from two sources), however many reviews were part of an incentivized giveaway so take this estimate with a grain of salt.

The difference lies in the components. Instead of the usual universal motor and wobble pump (found on most competing products), it has a brushless induction motor and an axial cam pump, which are built to handle more wear and tear. Instead of the usual basic accessories, it comes with a flexible high-pressure hose from ProPulse (a specialty hose manufacturer) and an ergonomic, rear-entry spray gun.

The frame is interesting as well. Similar to a gas unit, it’s designed like a cart so it’s easy to maneuver (the induction motor is about as heavy as an engine), but since there’s no fuel or oil to spill, it can also stand vertically. This is meant for compact storage, but it’s quite useful when working in small areas, too.

Now, let’s talk about what really grabs everyone’s attention: 2,700 PSI and 2.3 GPM. These numbers are huge for an electric-powered unit, and they are in fact certified by the Pressure Washer Manufacturers Association. However, there’s a caveat: you can’t get those outputs at the same time.

The motor regulates power to keep the water flow consistent, so you get more pressure or more volume depending on the nozzle you choose. With a narrow nozzle, you get 2,700 PSI, but only at a flow rate of 1.2 GPM. With a wide nozzle, you get 2.3 GPM, but only at 100 PSI of pressure. Either way, it’s still the most powerful electric pressure washer on the market, the advertising is just a little misleading.


The GPW2700 doesn’t have any problems that we consider dealbreakers, but there are a few small drawbacks and design flaws that are worth mentioning for the sake of transparency:

  • The detergent tank can’t be drained or removed. This makes it hard to swap cleaning products because the only way to purge the tank is to use up all of the existing solution (then you’ll want to run fresh water through it to clean it).
  • The wheels are plastic. They get the job done fine, but they’re a little rough when you’re moving over hard, uneven terrain like dirt and gravel.

  • Turbo: 2,700 PSI at 1.2 GPM
  • 15°: 2,300 PSI at 1.3 GPM
