  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, reaching high areas, and removing stubborn stains
  • general cleaning of hard surfaces , washing vehicles, and preparing surfaces for painting
  • delicate surface cleaning, andbroad area cleaning with reduced pressure
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces

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

Power

With an impressive 212cc engine powering it, the axial cam pump of this unit are capable of achieving a pressure of 3200 PSI (approximately 53 times greater than that of a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

To initiate the engine of this gas-powered pressure washer, a traditional pull-start mechanism is employed.

Gasoline is stored in a steel fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.

Design & Handling

Designed with a wheelbarrow configuration, the ECHO PW-3200 ensures improved mobility and stability, allowing for effortless movement and reliable operation on challenging surfaces. The sturdy steel frame ensures the longevity of the assembly, offering stability and protection for internal components, even during rigorous use. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

This unit, weighing 69 lbs, strikes a comfortable balance between portability and stability, ensuring easy maneuvering for users of various strengths. That weight is mainly due to the inclusion of the 212cc engine and a solid steel frame. However, with its two never-flat wheels, the PW-3200 is easy to maneuver.

Main Features

The ECHO PW-3200 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Soap injection: While not equipped with a soap tank, the device maintains detergent supply through a siphon hose. The ECHO PW-3200 includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, allowing detergent to be diluted to the ratio of 20:1 with ease. Upon connecting a soap nozzle, the pressure washer takes over the task of seamlessly combining the detergent with the water flow.
  • Pressure hose: The unit comes equipped with an included 30 ft high-pressure hose, which can be neatly stored on the unit when idle, thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps, ensuring easy access and organization.
  • 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.
