Zoom on the ECHO PW-3200

In a nutshell, the ECHO PW-3200 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 or high reach areas
  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Powered by an impressive 212 cc engine, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010). Combined, these values mean that the ECHO PW-3200 has a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

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

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

Design & Handling

The wheelbarrow design of the ECHO PW-3200 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The reversible handle offers further versatility, as its different positions make the unit less bulky when stored.

The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 69 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc engine and steel frame. But, as the PW-3200 does have a set of two never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.

Main Features

Along with the ECHO PW-3200 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The detergent is diluted with a 20:1 ratio by the ECHO PW-3200's automatic soap dilution mechanism. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 30 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • 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 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

  • With 8000 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), the PW-3200 is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the A-iPower PWF4200SH with its 16800 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
