- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces

Design & Handling
The Pressure-Pro PP3225H offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21 x W20.5 x H36.8 in. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. 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 63.5 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 187 cc Honda GC190 engine and its steel frame. However, the two 10" never-flat wheels allow the PP3225H to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
The Pressure-Pro PP3225H's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

- Pressure hose: The 25 ft ⌀5/16" 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.
