Description

Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW3425E

In summary, the DeWalt DXPW3425E 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
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

The DeWalt DXPW3425E in use

The DeWalt DXPW3425E

The DeWalt DXPW3425E's axial cam pump, powered by a powerful 208cc 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 DXPW3425E thus has a cleaning power of 8500 Cleaning Units.

The engine of this gas-powered pressure washer provides convenience and reliability, as it offers a dual starting mechanism: you may freely choose between the more modern electric start, or the old-school pull-start mechanism. However, it should be noted that the battery that is mandatory for the electric start is not included.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW3425E grants mobility and stability to the unit. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the DXPW3425E convenience of transport.

The device weighs 81 lbs and thus, is far from lightweight. Transporting and manually lifting it may therefore pose a challenge. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 208cc engine and welded steel frame. However, the device’s two 10" pneumatic wheels play a key role in its maneuverability, as they allow it to be manipulated smoothly.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW3425E in use

The DeWalt DXPW3425E

The DeWalt DXPW3425E comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

    The plastic housing which I believe is the water sensor that is connected to the garden hose broke the second time I used it. I would not recommend this to anybody.

    + PROS: It definitely will put some pressure on the material that you are spraying.
    - CONS: It will not last more than two, uses to three uses with the pressure sensor plastic piece.

    The Dewalt DXPW3425E has a water sensor that has a plastic housing that cracks….stay away from this unit. The closest warranty center is over 100 miles away and a three week period to get repaired. Very disappointed with Dewalt for their lack of concern for a well known defect in design . These units with this part are all over the internet for sale because of this. Never buying Dewalt products again!

    + PROS: Honda motor and pump perform well
    - CONS: Dewalt's lack of customer service and support for their poor decision on using a plastic housing for a water pressure sensor

    I bought a “returned/rebuilt” pressure washer a little over a year ago for personal use. I also bought an 18 inch surface cleaner. Compared to smaller units that I have borrowed from my neighbors, this one is a dream for cleaning driveways and sidewalks. So far I have no complaints with this DeWalt pressure washer and attachment.

    I use it on mine, and two of my children’s properties.

    + PROS: Much faster than using smaller units.
    - CONS: Trying to find O-rings that fit at home improvement stores is difficult. The brands they carry don't seem to be exactly what is needed.
