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 robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX3200 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 64 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and steel tubing frame. But, as the WPX3200 does have a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The Westinghouse WPX3200's package includes a spray gun, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. It must be noted that the Westinghouse WPX3200 doesn’t come with a soap dilution mechanism. Therefore, you must always make sure that your detergent is correctly diluted. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (3100 PSI rating) can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included ergonomic EnduraGrasp spray gun.
