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
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use of 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.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Westinghouse engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.9 gallon.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L21 x W19.5 x H39 in, the Westinghouse WPX3200 provides 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.
With a weight of 64 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. A major component of its weight are its 212 cc Westinghouse engine and steel tubing frame. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the WPX3200 to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
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 is stored in 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. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included ergonomic EnduraGrasp spray gun.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 5 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.
