Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW2500E

In a nutshell, the DeWalt DXPW2500E is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • targeted spot cleaning for hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching elevated areas, and thoroughly removing stubborn stains
  • complete cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface prep for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • using cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces to remove residue

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

Powered by a 24-amp induction motor, its triplex pump can deliver a pressure of 2500 PSI (around 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3.5 GPM (CETA-certified values). With these values combined, the DeWalt DXPW2500E boasts a cleaning power of 8750 Cleaning Units.

The DXPW2500E, an electric washer, gets going swiftly with a simple ON/OFF switch, making startup hassle-free. 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 offers enhanced mobility and stability, making it ideal for navigating uneven terrain and ensuring steady operation during heavy-duty cleaning tasks. The sturdy welded steel frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The handle adds to the DXPW2500E convenience of transport.

With its hefty 238.5 lbs, this unit isn't exactly easy to handle, making manual lifting and transport quite a daunting task, especially on uneven terrain. Its motor, the triplex pump and welded steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. Nevertheless, with its two 13" pneumatic wheels, users can manage the DXPW2500E with less difficulty, even over uneven terrain.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW2500E comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Despite the absence of a soap tank, detergent supply is facilitated through the use of a siphon hose. The unit features an adjustable detergent injection system that lets you manually control the detergent dilution ratio. Connection of a soap nozzle triggers the pressure washer to automatically incorporate the detergent into the water stream.
  • Pressure hose: When not in use, the unit allows for tidy storage of the included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose using a set of convenient hooks, ensuring convenient organization.
  • 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: Review the table below to learn about the 5 included nozzles and the surfaces they're recommended for.
