WORX points to increased power


The WORX Hydroshot Portable Power Cleaner has doubled its battery capacity this spring with a new model powered by a 40V MAX battery. The 40V battery increases Hydroshot’s run time and performance capabilities, the company said.


Typical projects might include watering projects around the home, dock, poolside and other fresh water access areas.


“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 40 volts, homeowners benefit by getting longer run times with greater water pressure to manage a variety of tasks.”


Hydroshot connects to fresh water sources through a standard garden hose or its 20-ft. accessory hose with intake (included). The intake draws water from lakes, rivers, pools or buckets. It includes an adjustable float, like a bobber, to keep it from touching bottom. Hydroshot also connects to most 2-liter bottles with a 1 in. opening through an optional Bottle Cap Connector accessory.


The steady improvement of battery performance is one of the top trends in the outdoor power equipment arena, and has been for years.


In the case of the Hydroshot, power is provided by a 40V Max 2.0 Ah battery. This battery has an LED power gauge. By pressing the battery’s red keypad, it signals 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 can run up to 45 minutes.
