Have used and owned pressure washers for many years. It was a close call between this and the 4200 psi unit, but I am extremely happy with my choice. I can lift this thing in and out of my wagon, which is critical. I can't imagine wanting more power than this puts out. If you follow a couple of easy rules it starts easily and will run all day without a hiccup. The smaller tips will destroy everything in their path...There is nothing I would change on this unit, and that makes a very satisfying purchase.
Pros: Good Size & Weight, Powerful, Great Engine

Review 2 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
I have had other makes and models, but I was in a pinch so I purchased this one. I am well pleased with its performance. I ran it for 4.5 hours straight cleaning irrigation well casings, and it performed like it was suppose to. I would recommend this pressure washer to anyone that has tough jobs to clean.

Review 3 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
After much research on power washers, I decided on the Dewalt. Apparently Dewalt reads the reviews then fixes the problems. None of the tips fall out of the holder on the handle. It is well made. It started after the 2nd pull. It has a lot of power. In fact, be careful as it can remove anything in its way and not just the paint or the dirt!!
The only complaint that I could make (it is being picky) is the quick disconnects are hard to put together and take apart. I am hoping over time that they will loosen after several uses.This is the reason I gave 4 stars on "ease of use."
Pros: Sturdy, Durable, Powerful, Great Engine, Easy to Store
Cons: Difficult to Use

Review 8 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
This unit is a Simpson made unit with Dewalt colors. It is a very high quality unit that has both a quality pump and a very nice engine. It is also very powerful and probably more pressure washer than most people need including myself. But for the money that Home Depot sells them for it is such a bargain that I bought it.
Engine: The commercial quality GX Honda engine is about as good as it gets. The homeowner GC engines are good but the GX are the best. These are used in rental equipment and last forever. Great big crank bearings, rocker arms and push rods. I wish they had a pressure lube system with a oil filter. Unit was shipped without crankcase oil installed; however it was included in box. After pouring oil in I ran for a few hours and then drained oil to insure any metal particles were flushed out. Extra work but it cost $3.00 and without an oil filter its cheap insurance.
Pump: I originally purchased a 3000 psi Dewalt DXPW 3025. The unit had a leaking pump so I returned it and purchased this model. The display unit had a General Pump, but the one I took home was equipped with a Comet pump. Both very high quality pumps. I didn't expect to get this nice of a pump on a $800 machine. Comet pump oil is east to find and is cheap as well.
Pros: As I mentioned earlier this is a very strong pressure washer. Cleaned both of my driveways very quickly. They had not been cleaned in 9 years and now they look like new. Because of its strength it will damage a deck if you get wand to close to wood. I cannot believe how much more powerful and therefore fast this unit is compared to the 3025. I guess 800 psi difference is more than I expected. I had not wanted to spend the extra $200 but it saved me so much time I guess it wasn't an issue after all. Unit has large tires and is very easy to move around. An OK wand is included
Negatives: Please follow directions as pumps can fail without proper use. A friend had a pump destroyed when his painter left the unit running without spraying water. The limit is two minutes. This is the case with most pressure washers from what I have been told. Also a cheap hose is included, but again for the money you pay for the great engine and a great pump that's OK.
I would recommend this unit without hesitation.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Durable, Powerful, Great Engine, Long-Lasting, great pump
Cons: cheap hose

Review 10 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
The house had heavy mold on the walk and patio. The drive was filthy. The deck was over 30 years old and had a semi-solid stain on it that looked more like paint than the sample I looked at 3 years ago. At this point, I thought the deck needed to be replaced. There was green mold on the siding.
Got a good deal on the washer and bought it. My wife was out of town at the time and out of contact.
Make a long story short... I showed the wife how to run the washer... not only did she do half the work, she called her mother last night to tell her how their house could benefit from a little sprucing up.
I've made a bunch of purchases recently, as we have been working on the house. This purchase was a home run. Had we rented a smaller unit, we would have already spent half of the purchase price.
I can see where this unit will pay for itself in short order.

Review 13 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
I purchased this product 7 months ago from HD. At first the product was good but as hours racked up the machine did a 180 on me. First the quick connect on the machine was a default so i could not purchase the part from HD. I took it to a dewalt service station an they told me it would be a month before i got the part from them. Well i found out that this is not a Dewalt product. I had to go buy another pressure washer from a local competitor which cost me $1500 because i had to run my business. I would not recommend this product due faulty parts and its not a true dewalt product.
Cons: not a true dewalt product.

Review 14 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
Updated review. Last summer my Dewalt 3800 PSI power washer was developing 3800 PSI of pressure when I used it. (This power washer stored in a heated garage so no way for the temperature to go below 32F. It does stay around 55 to 65F.)
This summer at the first used the pressure dropped to 2000 Psi. I changed the pump oil with a special oil from Home Depot, changed the engine oil and the spark plug and the air filter and the hose connection filter. The water pressure remain the same. I ordered a new North Star pressure washer gauge 5000 PSI 3/8in fitting. The pressure remain the same.
When I called, the Dewalt rep said it’s one year old so no warranty. When I called Home Depot for the extended warranty, they were very nice and pleasant to file a claim for me. A company called Mazzetti came and picked up my power washer to fix the pump.
8 weeks later the power washer still not done. Mazzetti said that they are waiting for the parts from Dewalt. Dewalt said everything (parts) are on back order and they don’t know when they will receive the parts. Mazzetti confirmed that they don’t know when the washer might be done.
When I called Home Depot to ask for replacement, they said that Home Depot warranty does not start until next year or so. (Home Depot states that the Dewult warranty is 3 years; Dewalt says it is 1 year.) Explaining that “Michigan has a short summer and that having the power washer in winter wouldn’t be useful” didn’t get me very far. For now we are still waiting and hoping for the best.
Buyers: beware of Dewalt warranty service.
Pros: Easy to Use, Powerful

Review 16 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
I was expecting a lot more out of this unit. No Pressure Adjustment? Really? No way to adjust pressure! Unreliable wand Pressure low and fluctuates! I took this back! Instead I ordered a new pump section for my G-force Graco2730 and it out performs this unit.
Pros: Great Engine

Review 17 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
I do a small pressure wash business for the last 11 years.Never had a problem with any pumps on any pressure washers ever. While using my dewalt 3800 psi washer a hole burst thru the armored hose, the pump started smoking, so machine was shut off. Brought in for service to a dewalt warranty on a six month machine. Dewalt says pump not covered because the part, they say was damaged by improper use. Leaving machine running without releasing pressure. As i said Ihave used 4 other machines till they just wore out. So Beware of Dewalt not honoring any warranty. They stated $950 to fix a $800 machine. Do not buy any dewalt Pressure washer.
Cons: Not Durable, no warranty repairs, 6 month garbage

Review 19 for Honda GX270 3800-PSI 3.5-GPM Gas Pressure Washer
This machine works wonderful. More than enough power for any job. The only issue I had were with the extra tips. They vibrate out of their rubber storage spot when the machine is running. I almost lost one of the tips when this happened.
