Description

Zoom on the DeWalt DXPW60606

In summary, the DeWalt DXPW60606 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 hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate 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 an impressive 389 cc (11.7 hp) engine, its triplex pump delivers a pressure of up to 4200 PSI (roughly 70 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 16800 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GX390 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 1.6 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the DeWalt DXPW60606 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust and sturdy welded steel frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the DXPW60606 convenience of transport.

The unit's weight of 145 lbs renders its carrying and transportation challenging, as it is far from lightweight. The main contributor to its weight are its 389 cc Honda GX390 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. However, its two 13" pneumatic wheels play an important part in its maneuvrability, as they allow for a smooth manipulation on the job.

Main Features

The DeWalt DXPW60606'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. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The 50 ft ⌀3/8" high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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 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 DXPW60606'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 trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation), a low oil protection and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the DeWalt DXPW60606 also comes with spray gun, wand, nozzle cleaner, oil, soap hose and pressure hose.
  • Emissions: The DeWalt DXPW60606 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 DXPW60606's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the DeWalt DXPW60606 compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With 4200 PSI, the DeWalt DXPW60606 ranks as one that can reach the highest pressure, amongst the gas-powered products that cost between $1550 and $2000.
  • In its respective price range, the water flow of this washer, 4 GPM (gallons per minute), ranks as average. 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 NorthStar 157160, with 5 GPM.
  • With a rather impressive value of 16800 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the DXPW60606 has one of the highest cleaning efficiencies compared to similarly priced devices.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 16500 and 17000 Cleaning Units, the DeWalt DXPW60606 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
