Zoom on the DeWalt DWPW2400
In a nutshell, the DeWalt DWPW2400 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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 DeWalt DWPW2400 has a cleaning power of 2640 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the DWPW2400 is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
