Description

Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW3425

In summary, the DeWalt DXPW3425 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless 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

With a 196 cc (5.8 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of 3400 PSI (roughly 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (CETA-certified values), resulting in the DeWalt DXPW3425's cleaning power of 8500 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GX200 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.82 gallon.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW3425 grants mobility and stability to the unit. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the DXPW3425 convenience of transport.

The unit's weight of 83 lbs renders its carrying and transportation challenging, as it is far from lightweight. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. However, its two 10" pneumatic wheels play an important part in its maneuverability, as they allow for a smooth manipulation on the job.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW3425 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • 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 enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand. A rotating auxiliary side handle further improves both left-handed and right-handed users' comfort.
  • Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: With the DeWalt DXPW3425's handy storage area, you’ll always have all the necessary nozzles and accessories at hand and thus, you’ll be fully prepared for any job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage), a low oil protection and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the DeWalt DXPW3425 are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as wand, oil, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, soap hose and spray gun.
  • Emissions: The DeWalt DXPW3425 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. This means that this pressure washer can be bought and sold in each of the 50 states, including California.

The DeWalt DXPW3425's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the DeWalt DXPW3425 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The DeWalt DXPW3425, with a max water pressure of 3400 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the gas-powered products in the $500-600 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the DeWalt DXPW3625 with 3600 PSI.
  • When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
  • The 8500 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the DXPW3425 result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced gas-powered units. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Lifan LFQ3370 with its 9900 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

    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.
