Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW2500E

The DeWalt DXPW2500E is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The DeWalt DXPW2500E's triplex pump, powered by a 24 amp induction motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (approximately 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3.5 GPM (CETA-certified values). The DeWalt DXPW2500E thus has a cleaning power of 8750 Cleaning Units.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the DXPW2500E gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW2500E grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the DXPW2500E convenience of transport.

The device weighs 238.5 lbs and thus, is far from lightweight. Transporting and manually lifting it may therefore pose a challenge. Its motor, the triplex pump and welded steel frame are mainly responsible for its heavy weight. However, the device’s two 13" pneumatic wheels play a key role in its maneuverability, as they allow it to be manipulated smoothly.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW2500E's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The washer has an adjustable detergent injection system that allows the user to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand. The gun features a rotating auxiliary side handle to further improve the comfort of both left and right-handed users.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: The DeWalt DXPW2500E allows you to be always fully prepared, as it features a handy storage area, where nozzles and accessories can be stored.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage), a overflow valve with pressure switch protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the DeWalt DXPW2500E also comes with soap hose, oil, power cord, pressure hose, wand and spray gun.

  • The DeWalt DXPW2500E, with a max water pressure of 2500 PSI, has one of the highest PSI values of the electric products in the $1700-2150 price range.
