Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW3400PR

In summary, the DeWalt DXPW3400PR is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

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

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

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR in use

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR's axial cam pump, powered by an impressive 208 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (approximately 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (CETA-certified values). The DeWalt DXPW3400PR thus has a cleaning power of 8500 Cleaning Units.

With a dual start mechanism, the DeWalt engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability: you can either choose the practical electric start, or the traditional pull-start mechanism. However, it should be noted that the 20V battery that is mandatory for the electric start is not included.

A steel fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.68 gallon is used to store gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW3400PR grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

This model weighs 85 lbs. For this reason, it cannot be called lightweight and thus, carrying and transporting it might be somewhat challenging. The main contributor to its weight are its 208 cc DeWalt engine and welded steel frame. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 10" pneumatic wheels, which play a key role in its maneuvrability.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR in use

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR

The DeWalt DXPW3400PR comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook. A rotating auxiliary side handle further improves both left-handed and right-handed users' comfort.
  • Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

PressuReady Technology

DeWalt PressuReady panel

DeWalt's PressuReady® technology offers a waterproof battery compartment that accepts 20V MAX* and FLEXVOLT® batteries.

It removes the need to adjust the choke or to pull the recoil, as the engine starts and the choke self-adjusts when the gun trigger is pulled.

In addition, an integrated smart control panel features a built-in LED diagnostic screen that indicates which mode the pressure washer is in (such as ready-mode or water flow), and warns of potential faults such as lack of fuel or low battery.
