Power

The DeWalt DXPW4440 in use

The DeWalt DXPW4440

The DeWalt DXPW4440's triplex pump, powered by an impressive 389 cc (11.7 hp) engine, can provide a pressure of up to 4400 PSI (approximately 73 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The DeWalt DXPW4440 thus has a cleaning power of 17600 Cleaning Units.

This gas-powered pressure washer’s Honda GX390 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 1.6 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW4440 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong welded steel frame assures assembly longevity. The handle adds to the DXPW4440 convenience of transport.

With a weight of 139 lbs, the model is not lightweight. Therefore, it may be challenging to manually carry it around and transport it. The major reasons for its heavy weight are its 389 cc Honda GX390 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. However, the unit is manipulated smoothly thanks to its two 13" pneumatic wheels, which play a key role in its maneuvrability.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW4440 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. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
  • Pressure hose: The included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • 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: The DeWalt DXPW4440 comes with an owner's manual and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get pressure hose, spray gun, oil, nozzle cleaner, soap hose and wand.

The DeWalt DXPW4440's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the DeWalt DXPW4440 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 4400, with 4.2 GPM.
  • With a rather impressive value of 17600 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the DXPW4440 has a higher cleaning efficiency compared to similarly priced devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Predator 4400 with its 18480 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.

    Bought it and in third use the pump leaked all of its oil thru the see-thru gauge on the front. Disappointed.

    + PROS: Great pressure. Nice gun and nozzles.
    - CONS: Pump leaked all of its oil on third light use.
