DeWalt 20V Max Power Cleaner DCPW550B

DeWalt Has a Handle on Portable Power Cleaning

With ten times the power of your garden hose and a lot more portability than your old pressure washer, the DeWalt DCPW550B 20V cordless power cleaner presents a truly convenient solution to cleaning around the house or jobsite.

DeWalt DCPW550B Highlights

The DeWalt 20V Max Power Cleaner won’t replace your pressure washer for serious stains and cleaning. However, if you value extreme portability, the DeWalt DCPW550B has enough power to tackle basic cleaning duties that your hose can’t handle alone.

The DeWalt Power Cleaner conveniently runs on 20V battery power—making it extremely portable. What you may not immediately realize is that you don’t even necessarily need a garden hose. If you find yourself in a spot where procuring a supply of running water could present a problem, DeWalt gives you an option. You can stick the included suction hose into any fresh water source. A 5-gallon bucket works just fine and lasts long enough for smaller cleaning jobs.

Of course, if you do have a garden hose, so much the better. This cleaner features a quick connect adaptor so there’s no threading required at the tool. An assortment of quick-connect nozzles stores right on top to help you match the power to your application.

Other Features

  • 550 MAX psi
  • Delivers 10X the power of a garden hose
  • On-the-go adaptability to draw water from any freshwater source
  • Quick connect adaptor

Or, if you could use another 5.0Ah battery and charger, you can pick up the kit for $199. Either option comes with DeWalt’s 3-year warranty.
