Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX3200
The Westinghouse WPX3200, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
With a powerful 212 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the Westinghouse WPX3200's cleaning power of 8000 Cleaning Units.
The Westinghouse engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon.
Design & Handling
The Westinghouse WPX3200 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L21 x W19.5 x H39 in. 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.
Weighing 64 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Since the WPX3200 has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
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 is stored in 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: 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.
- Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 5 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
