Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW3625
In a nutshell, the DeWalt DXPW3625 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 and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.
With a 196 cc (5.8 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of 3600 PSI (roughly 60 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (CETA-certified values), resulting in the DeWalt DXPW3625's cleaning power of 9000 Cleaning Units.
The Honda GX200 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.82 gallon.
Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW3625 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the DXPW3625 convenience of transport.
Weighing 76 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 196 cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the DXPW3625 has a set of two 10" pneumatic wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The DeWalt DXPW3625's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of 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: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

Biggest piece of crap I ever owned. Purchased it a little over a year ago for the Honda engine. Also lousy. I get to pay $100/year to get the damn thing running again and even then it is difficult to start.
I just got one n havent used yet .. but can tell u absolutely u can bring back as long as u have receipt n wasnt owned for more then 90 days. If so what I sometimes do is buy another one n put old one back in box n return saying I used it one or twice n its giving me issues. Not happy or u could call manufacturer n go that route. But who wants to deal with that . Lastly another way is to buy one take to vehicle n put in back seat or cab then go back in store n grab the same exact one n take to exit. Now if they stop u tell them h just bought it but thought u had to get different nozzle n wanted to make sure it was gonna fit , so u brought machine with u after u paid for it. Sku numbers r the same. Hey goodluck #140kayear5fingr
Had the pressure washer 3/30/2020 used about 2 hour every time or less , I used so far about 4 times and now the spark plug has oil in it and also in the piston chamber . I’m assuming there’s a broke gasket that needs to be replaced … can get a refund or trade it in for a new one?
Disappointed with the machine
