Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX3200e
The Westinghouse WPX3200e, 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 and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.
With a 13 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.76 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 2800 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM, resulting in the Westinghouse WPX3200e's cleaning power of 3080 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the WPX3200e gets easily started by a simple ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The Westinghouse WPX3200e is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19 x W18.5 x H37.5 in. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX3200e convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Standing at only 39.7 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 10" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
The Westinghouse WPX3200e comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a 0.5 gal tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀25/64" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
