DeWalt 3400 PSI Pressure Washer Steps Up With Electric Start

Up for your pressure cleaning consideration is the DeWalt DXPW3425 gas-powered 3400 PSI pressure washer. Featuring an electric start and a reasonable price tag, it’s a compelling package targetting professional users.

DeWalt 3400 PSI Electric Start Pressure Washer Performance

Pressure washers rely heavily on the relationship between the engine and pump. In this case, DeWalt opts for a 208cc OEM DeWalt-branded engine and pairs it with a AAA triplex pump.

A few things stand out. First, the engine is CARB-compliant, so if you’re in California, this is an option for you. Second, it’s an electric start engine with a recoil backup. It uses a 12V AGM sealed lead-acid battery, so you can’t use your DeWalt 12V, Max, 20V Max, or FlexVolt batteries for starting. Still, it’s a lot better than pulling the cord every time.

Then there’s the pump. By going with a triplex pump, DeWalt sets the tone that they designed this unit for professional use.

Putting it all together, the system delivers up to 3400 PSI and 2.5 GPM. In the realm of gas pressure washers, this is a versatile mid-range power level that can handle a lot:

  • Decks
  • Driveways
  • Grills
  • Paint Prep
  • Patio Furniture
  • Siding
  • Windows

It also has plenty of power to make efficient use of a surface cleaner to make seasonal driveway and sidewalk cleaning much faster.

DeWalt 3400 PSI Electric Start Pressure Washer Design Notes

Water Sensor

There’s a sensor onboard that detects the presence of water in the pump. If there’s no water, it won’t start, and if your water supply suddenly cuts out, it will stop. While that’s not a huge concern for most professionals, it’s a nice insurance policy to extend the pump’s life.

Nozzles and Hose

The pressure washer comes with 5 standard 1/4-inch quick connect nozzles: 0°, 15°, 25°, 40°, and soap. As for the hose, it’s a 5/16-inch and 25-foot MorFlex hose that’s non-marring, flexible, and abrasion-resistant.

Additional Features

  • 10-inch pneumatic tires
  • Compact steel frame design
  • Flipping the handle around can save storage space
