Despite its small stature, this compact electric pressure washer packs a lot of power. The 13 amp general purpose motor and axial lobe pump produce 2100 PSI of dirt detonation force at a conservative flow rate of 1.2 GPM. During our testing, it easily removed stubborn dirt and algae from PVC privacy fences and vinyl siding without adding any chemicals.
Loading and unloading onto a truck or van is easy with multiple grab points on the exterior cage. It also offers extra protection from objects that may fall on it, and features two 4-inch integrated wheels and a retractable handle for better mobility.
DeWalt 2100 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Design
size and weight
The DeWalt DWPW2100 packs this performance into a compact package. Measuring 22.5 x 15.13 x 10.5 (L x W x H) inches and weighing just under 28 pounds fully loaded, its overall shape and size reminded me of a mid-size carry-on luggage. With the telescoping handle extended, it stands 39 inches tall and is super easy to roll and maneuver. It's worth noting that these tires aren't all-terrain tires, which perform best on hard surfaces.
Hose and Cord Storage
DeWalt makes it easy to keep hoses and cords tangle-free when your pressure washer isn't in use. The 35-foot cord wraps neatly around two large plastic cleats in the recessed area of the bottom, while the coiled hose secures securely under the top handle.
axial flow pump
Most pressure washers are equipped with axial or triplex pumps. Axial pumps are simpler, but triplex pumps tend to be more efficient and last longer. Because of this, you'll find triple cylinders on most commercial-grade pressure washers. Professionals who frequently use pressure washers will want to pay attention to the axial flow pump when considering this model. If you only use your pressure washer occasionally, the axial pump is not a problem.
Onboard accessory storage
Most pressure washers have some sort of onboard accessory storage, but DeWalt's is truly unique. The wand breaks down into three pieces, which are stored in the interior compartment at the end of the pressure washer.
Another unique design idea is that the spout is stored directly on the handle. It only holds three people, and there are four in the set, so one has to stay in the inner compartment or on the wand.
Because this model doesn't have any external wand storage like you'd find on most pressure washers, you'll need to completely disassemble the pressure washer after the job is done.
car detergent tank
Like many electric pressure washers, the DeWalt 2100 PSI Electric Pressure Washer has an on-board detergent tank. But unlike others, the DWPW2100's water tank is removable, so it's much easier to pour leftover soap back into the bottle when the job is done.
The advantage is that it can be delivered upright or flat on the ground to deliver detergent.

DeWalt 2100 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Price
The DeWalt 2100 PSI Electric Pressure Washer retails for $299 at Home Depot and comes with a 3-year warranty, a 1-year free service agreement, and a 90-day money-back guarantee. It's slightly higher than other 2100 PSI/1.2 GPM models, but none of them have this level of storage convenience.
the bottom line
Overall, we are happy with the performance of the DeWalt 2100 PSI Electric Pressure Washer. The machine is compact and lightweight, making it easy to store it in a small residential garage or in a loaded work trailer. Its power level is fine for light duty work, but you may want to consider a model with a higher PSI and GPM rating for more demanding jobs. Regardless, we wouldn't be surprised if others took inspiration from DeWalt's creative designs.
