Zoom on the ECHO PW-3200

The ECHO PW-3200 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
  • application of 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

With an impressive 212 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values as per PW101-2010), resulting in the ECHO PW-3200's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.

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

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. Its 212 cc engine and steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. However, the two never-flat wheels allow the PW-3200 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

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: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The ECHO PW-3200 features an automatic soap dilution mechanism, that will dilute your detergent with a 20:1 ratio. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 30 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • 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 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
