Description

Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW60604

In summary, the DeWalt DXPW60604 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 and fragile surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

Its triplex pump, which utilizes an impressive 270 cc (8.4 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3800 PSI (almost 63 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 3.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 13300 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GX270 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.4 gallon.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW60604 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the DXPW60604 convenience of transport.

With a weight of 125 lbs, the model is not lightweight. Therefore, it may be challenging to manually carry it around and transport it. Its 270 cc Honda GX270 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame add up to a large chunk of the device's weight. However, the unit’s two 13" pneumatic wheels are crucial to its maneuverability, since they provide a smooth method of manipulation on the job.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW60604'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: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store 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 table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

Other Features

  • Onboard storage: The DeWalt DXPW60604's handy storage area lets you store nozzles and accessories, and thus, you’ll be always prepared and have everything necessary for the job at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a low oil protection, a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage) and a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: The DeWalt DXPW60604 comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get spray gun, wand, soap hose, oil, nozzle cleaner and pressure hose.
  • Emissions: The DeWalt DXPW60604 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. And so, this pressure washer is available for sale and purchase in any of the 50 states, including California.

The DeWalt DXPW60604's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the DeWalt DXPW60604 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With its 3800 PSI max pressure output, the DeWalt DXPW60604 is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $700-800 price range. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite that can reach up to 4500 PSI.
  • With a maximum GPM of 3.5 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Simpson PS60843, with a GPM of 4.
  • The 13300 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the DXPW60604 sit at an average, in reference to other gas-powered units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Lifan LFQ4515E-Elite and its 18000 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 12500 and 14000 Cleaning Units, the DeWalt DXPW60604 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget pressure washer.
