Description

Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW3425

In a nutshell, the DeWalt DXPW3425 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
  • applying 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

Using a 196 cc (5.8 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (roughly 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 8500 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GX200 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.82 gallon of gasoline.

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.

This model weighs 83 lbs. For this reason, it cannot be called lightweight and thus, carrying and transporting it might be somewhat challenging. Its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, its two 10" pneumatic wheels play an important part in its maneuvrability, 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. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook. The gun features a rotating auxiliary side handle to further improve the comfort of both left and right-handed users.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

  • 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 soap hose, pressure hose, wand, spray gun, oil and nozzle cleaner.
  • Emissions: The DeWalt DXPW3425 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this pressure washer is allowed 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.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 3400 PSI, the DeWalt DXPW3425 finds itself in the expected pressure range among gas-powered units that cost between $500 and $600. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the A-iPower APW4200 with a PSI of 4200.
  • In the aforementioned price range, this washer, with 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute), is placed on the lower end of the GPM scale. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the A-iPower APW4200, which can reach up to 4 GPM.
  • The DXPW3425's Cleaning Units, 8500 CU (PSI x GPM), fall into the lower end when compared to gas-powered devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the A-iPower APW4200 and its 16800 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
