Pros and Cons
Just about any kind of cleaning job can be handled by the Duromax XP2700PWS. This is its most important advantage. The water pressure it offers is amazing, and with the right nozzle any type of item can be cleaned. And if the pressure doesn’t work, you can always use the detergent tank included in this unit.
But while it’s big, it is still easy to move around. It’s not all that heavy either, so you can use it for some heavy-duty roof maintenance. It’s very easy to use too and the hose is long enough that the unit can stay in one place when you’re cleaning. It is also stable enough so you won’t have to keep putting it back up because the hose keeps tipping it over.
Finally, the Duromax XP2700PWS can be set up quickly and you don’t need to be a genius to get it up and running. You just follow the instructions that come with the box, and it won’t take you half an hour until you’re all set.
So what’s wrong with it? Well, the thing is, there are still other more powerful pressure washers in the market but they tend to be more expensive as well. Besides, the more powerful washers may be more suitable for commercial use.
Another issue is that there are times when you’ll need more than a single pull to get this washer to start. But once it does, you won’t need to stop until the job is done. The fuel tank is very large so you won’t have to worry about running out of gas.
Sometimes a little motor just won’t do, especially for tough outdoor cleaning jobs. That’s where the Duromax XP2700PWS comes in. It’s like the Navy Seals or Special Forces when it comes to handling tough jobs—they get the job done right.
