The DeWalt DWPW2100's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the DeWalt DWPW2100 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2100 PSI, the DeWalt DWPW2100 finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $195 and $255. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX4600 with a PSI of 3000.
- When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Realm BY02-BIMK, with 1.75 GPM.
- The DWPW2100 ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 2520 CU (PSI x GPM). If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Realm BY02-BIMK, which can reach up to 4550 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 2500 and 3000 Cleaning Units, the DeWalt DWPW2100 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
