Zoom on the Craftsman CMEPW2100

The Craftsman CMEPW2100 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The Craftsman CMEPW2100 in use

The Craftsman CMEPW2100

Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2100 PSI (almost 35 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2520 Cleaning Units.

The CMEPW2100 is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The Craftsman CMEPW2100 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the CMEPW2100 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 35 lbs. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 10" wheels.

Main Features

Along with the Craftsman CMEPW2100 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable tank. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
