Power

The Craftsman CMEPW2400 in use

The Craftsman CMEPW2400

Powered by a 13 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 2400 PSI (around 40 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.1 GPM (CETA-certified values). Combined, these values mean that the Craftsman CMEPW2400 has a cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Craftsman CMEPW2400's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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 CMEPW2400 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 CMEPW2400 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Because the device weighs just 44.8 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. A set of two 10" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
