- Battery recharger included
- This product, the WG629 hydroshot, is a truly portable power cleaner for maintaining everything around the house, like cleaning spaces and all kinds of surfaces, watering plants, cleaning your car. The tool works with its own rechargeable battery, so it’s cordless, and thus highly portable.
- With a standard purchase, you get the main tool with one battery and a recharger. You get the solid brass copper switchable spray pattern, with quick connect tech, with 5 adjustable spray patterns. You also get the extension bar and a 20-foot self-filtering garden hose.
- Its primary use is as a power cleaner or a hydroshot, as it is popularly called. It simply attaches to your gardening hose and amplifies its power by 5 to 7 times, depending on if you use the extension bar. Long extension bar gives you a weaker spray, which is about 5 times stronger than your plain water hose but gives you a longer reach, while the short tube ramps it up to 7 times the garden hose power.
The spray angle is adjustable to suit many situations. There are 5 different spray patterns. You can spray water in 0, 15, 25, 40 degrees, or set it up for watering.
The watering setting is the most delicate and gentle. It sprays in a wide gentle spray in quick pulses, similar to some water sprinklers, so it covers a lot of surfaces and saves you time. It sort of imitates rain in a way, allowing you to cover your plants easily without damaging them with a stronger spray force.
The other 4 spray settings are more powerful. The 0 degree is best suited for hosing off patio pavers, stone, bricks, stuff like that. So, it gives the maximum water concentration in a single point, so it’s generally the strongest for let’s say single target cleaning. The others widen the spray pattern, taking off some of the power, but letting you cover more surfaces. The others spray angles are more suited for large flat surfaces, like table tops, windows, cars.
The adjustable extension bar gives you some reach for some tricky places perhaps that need hosing off. As mentioned, you lose some of the spray power with the extension bar attached, but it lets you clean with 5 times the strength of a normal hose. Without the extension bar, you get shorter reach, but the spray power is up to 7 times the normal water hose, which is excellent for some hardened soil on your car’s tires and stuff like that, easily reachable and in need of a power wash.
One of the main advantages of this WG629 power cleaner is that it works on a rechargeable battery, so no power cords will be bothering you. You also get the battery recharger. WORX products are generally known to have a long lasting life, and the quality of this unit seems to promise the same.
Another advantage is that the cleaner is very light. If you were to for example to water your plants with a standard watering can, they weight at a 15-20 pounds on average and have a limited water supply. WG629 lets you do all the work with a light tool, weighting a little over 3 pounds.
Another interesting feature is that this product can work as a water pump. Using the filter hose that’s included in the standard purchase, you can extract water from any sores nearby. A swimming pool, a lake, river, etc… It sucks about 1l of water in 10 seconds or less, depending on the spray pattern.
The filtered hose lets you use any water source, without worrying about the debris.
Almost all of the WORX products have the same battery, so you if you have multiple tools, you can recharge one single battery and use it to power all of them if you don’t want to bother with waiting times.
