PSI is the pressure (lbs. per square inch) at which the water exits the nozzle. The GPM (gallons per minute) refers to the amount of water volume that exits the nozzle during a specified amount of time.
A combination of both PSI and GPM are important in determining the ultimate performance of a portable power cleaner.
A higher waterflow rate (GPM) helps “flush” out debris from a large cleaning area, while a higher PSI provides a greater “grime” removal rate, and typically, in a more concentrated area.
The included nozzle is a 4-in-1 multi-spray nozzle that rotates to adjust between 0°, 15°, 25°, and 40°. The lance has a standard ¼” fitting that accommodates standard ¼” nozzles by depressing the brass ring on the wand, inserting the nozzle, then releasing the ring. The nozzle should then “snap” into place.
The WORX Hydroshot has custom-designed accessories to perform a wide variety of cleaning tasks. Aftermarket pressure washer accessories can also be used on the Hydroshot, but may not operate as originally designed since the water flow rate is much lower than a typical pressure washer.
The WG649 40V Hydroshot ULTRA offers an innovative and unique design in order to reduce the weight of the wand component. The motor and water pump have been removed from the wand and placed in this self-contained component at the end of the high-pressure water hose and cable. A special high-pressure water hose and power-cable connect the batteries to the motor and pump, alleviating the need to carry the weight of the motor and pump on the wand. To draw water, the motor and pump component can be directly connected to a water spigot or garden hose (with the quick-connect adapter), submerged in a freshwater source, or connected to the draw hose.
The pump and motor component at the end of the high-pressure water hose and power-cable is waterproof and designed to be fully submerged to draw water, however, this unit does not float. For use in water sources that may have a debris-filled bottom (ie lakes, rivers, etc.), it is suggested to connect the clear 20’ draw hose to the end of the high-pressure hose and power-cable to ensure the floating filter does not draw in debris.
Especially when using a self-drawn water source (like from a bucket or lake), it may take up to 20 seconds to start pulling water through the hose and Hydroshot. If it is still not working, check the following:
Check the connection by gently pulling the hose. It should not easily pull off. If it does, reinstall by making sure the hose clicks into position.
Check the intake filter at the end of the supplied 20ft. hose to see if debris or dirt is clogging the intake. Clean and reinstall if necessary.
Confirm that no hoses are being compressed, kinked, or being restricted in any way.
Make sure the intake filter on the supplied 20ft hose is floating just under the water’s surface and not touching the bottom or any dirt or debris that may prevent water from being drawn into the hose.
If the supplied 20ft hose is securely attached and the unit is not siphoning water from your water source, try attaching a household garden hose directly to the pump/motor component. If it works with the direct household connection, flush the machine for at least 1 minute, reattach the supplied 20ft hose and try siphoning from your water source again. (This is also a helpful step when bringing the machine out of storage.)
If all filters are installed and cleared and all accessories are securely tightened, re-install the long lance and nozzle, change the pressure setting to High, and try again. Keep the Hydroshot no higher than 5’ from the water source to decrease the travel distance between the water and tool.
The Hydroshot is designed for use with freshwater sources, and using chemicals, cleansers, saltwater or any other non-fresh water sources in it will void the warranty. However, chlorine-based disinfectants are suitable. For tough cleaning needs, the soap dispenser accessory (WA4036) can be used to mix any after-market cleaning solutions or liquid soaps. When using fresh water from a lake, river, or pond, slide the float along the hose to keep the intake away from the bottom to avoid picking up dirt or mud. When finished, flush the tool with ordinary tap water to ensure its longevity and performance.
Yes! With Power Share, you can share the battery and save money. Your WORX Hydroshot can use any WORX 20V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.

The Most Powerful Hydroshot Yet
11x more pressure than a garden hose & nozzle. And with 725 PSI, it’s more than twice as powerful as the standard Hydroshot. Plus, the ULTRA runs on two 20V Power Share batteries at the same time—for a longer runtime and more performance.
