Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX3200
In summary, the Westinghouse WPX3200 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its aluminum axial cam pump, which utilizes an impressive 212 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (almost 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Westinghouse engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon is used to store gasoline.
Design & Handling
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L21 x W19.5 x H39 in, the Westinghouse WPX3200 offers great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX3200 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of 64 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and its steel tubing frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the WPX3200 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
Along with the Westinghouse WPX3200 itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. The Westinghouse WPX3200 is not equipped with a soap dilution mechanism, and thus, it is up to the user to ensure the detergent’s correct dilution ratio when using it. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (3100 PSI rating) is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun: The included ergonomic EnduraGrasp spray gun can be easily stored in a side hook.
- Nozzles: The 5 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.
