Zoom on the Westinghouse WPX3200e
The Westinghouse WPX3200e is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 13 amp induction motor, its axial cam pump can deliver a pressure of 3200 PSI (around 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. Combined, these values mean that the Westinghouse WPX3200e has a cleaning power of 3080 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the Westinghouse WPX3200e's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19 x W18.5 x H37.5 in, the Westinghouse WPX3200e offers great mobility. The strong steel frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the WPX3200e convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 33.1 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. On top of its light weight, the transportability and ease of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 10" never-flat wheels.
Along with the Westinghouse WPX3200e itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, 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. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
