Zoom on the Westinghouse EPX3500
In a nutshell, the Westinghouse EPX3500 is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.
The Westinghouse EPX3500's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 2500 PSI (approximately 42 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 2000 PSI and rated flow is 1.24 GPM. The Westinghouse EPX3500 thus has a cleaning power of 2480 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the EPX3500 gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF button. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D13.5 x W14 x H16.5 in, the Westinghouse EPX3500 makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the EPX3500 convenience of transport. The handle remains sturdy and will never fall apart, as it is molded in the frame.
With a weight of only 19 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features four solid wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The Westinghouse EPX3500 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a 0.16 gal tank. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀25/64" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The 5 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.
