Zoom on the Stanley SXPW3425
In a nutshell, the Stanley SXPW3425 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
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a powerful 208 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (almost 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 8500 Cleaning Units.
The Shineray engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.26 gallon.
Design & Handling
The wheelbarrow design of the Stanley SXPW3425 grants mobility and stability to the unit. The robust steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The handle adds to the SXPW3425 convenience of transport.
Weighing 67 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 208 cc Shineray engine and its steel frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the SXPW3425 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
The Stanley SXPW3425 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- Pressure hose: The 35 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.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
