Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marcel This is a great machine for the price charged.
I bought this power washer to replace an old one, from a different brand, not so powerful and accurate. It's compact design makes it easy to transport and storage. It starts quickly, since the first time and works great. The only problem with this model, is the hose that comes with it: It's a fragile domestic hose, totally incompatible with a great professional machine; after only 20 hours of use, it cracked and leaked. It would be better pay $ 50.00 or $ 70.00 more and have a heavy duty hose included in the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Buy a replacement hose
Bought this unit a couple weeks ago and have used it twice for a total time of about an hour. It is very powerful, and I love the Honda engine. I also love the generous gas tank. Mine does have the AAA pump that other reviewers mentioned, but I have not had a problem with it (so far). Overall, I'm very pleased with the unit, with one major exception:
THE EXHAUST WILL MELT THE HOSE THAT COMES WITH THE UNIT AND CAUSE IT TO BURST. Now, ideally the hose won't be touching the exhaust. However, the hose connections are located directly beneath the exhaust, and anyone who has done a fair amount of pressure washing knows how difficult it is to control the entire length of the hose, particularly when up on a ladder.
I would still recommend the product, but be very careful with the hose. Or, better yet, buy a replacement that can withstand the heat. And come on Dewalt, you're a respected name in tools... Build a product that doesn't damage itself in the normal course of operation.

After my Karcher 2500 psi broke for the third time, I started to to do a lot more research and know I had to spend more money to get a better machine. Before I bought the Karcher,I had one with a cat pump(bought used) and that pump threw some water but motor went bad. I wanted the Rigid 3300 with the cat pump but needed it now for a job and didn't have time to wait. I went to HD and checked out the DeWalt 3000psi. I knew the honda motor was good, but was kinda worried about the pump.I did more research and bought the DeWalt 3000 GX160.Brought it straight to the job. Fired it up and ran it 4 hours straight. Next day, I spent over 7 hours cleaning my house and driveway. Worked flawlessly.Started every time. Great power and well worth the $600 price.Of course it is not time tested with me,this machine has more than enough power for homeowners who want more of a commerical grade machine.One note. The hose that comes with it needs to be upgraded

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon Beware of return policies not being honored
Would no recommend this unit went through 2 in 4 months with the same issue bad unloader ball valve and part is on a nationwide back order. With the first unit Home Depot was awesome and got me another brand new unit. So on my 2nd unit I was within my 90 days with once again same issue bad unloader valve and wanted to take advantage of dewalt's 90 day no hassle money back guarantee and they would not honor it because they say another company FNA makes it and puts Dewalt name on it. FNA says we don't honor Dewalts policy's so all I got was the run around and no one would help me. Well thanks to Home Depot they once again were nice enough to go outside there policy and let me pay the difference and upgrade to a different unit. Beware Dewalt will not honor there 90 day police on a licensed product all they will do is refer you to the other company. I will never buy another Dewalt product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeachBlonde Perfect, just perfect!!!!
We bought this DewaltT machine primarily to clean and maintain our pool deck, dock and boat as well as the house and driveway. It far exceeded our expectation. Assembling just involved putting the handle on. No tools necessary. After putting in the oil that came in the box with the Dewalt and fueling it up. We hooked up the garden hose and the spray trigger and pressure hose. First pull it started up. I'm glad we decided to get this machine as there was lots of power and it cleaned a lot faster than our old Sears one.
This was a little more than I wanted to spend but I'm glad we did, the Honda commercial engine is a lot smoother than our old one and the whole machine is just much better than the cheaper ones.
We've had it a month now and I've even taken it over to my folks place in Tampa and went to town cleaning up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by probie well worth it for the price
Found this unit at local HD on the display shelf. Had the CAT pump, looked at other new ones in the box and both models had the AR pump. Manager was willing to sell display unit with the cat. Owned it for a week, used it about 15 hrs and could not be happier! Besides having the top of the line CAT pump, I noticed my 3025 was equipped with HONDA'S GX200cc engine (stamped on rear of engine casting just above pump). Thank you DEWALT. I expect good things with this unit but only time will tell.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GeneralContractor homeowner use good, Pros' watch the pump
My company is a general contracting company in the metro dc area. We offer pressure washing services. Over the years we have used many different pressure washers. most usually dont make it through one season. This specific one did. Although it has a wonderful honda gx160 engine, the pump is made by a company called AAA pump. They resemble cat pumps with their layout, but are far from the quality or price. We paid the HD floor price for the unit. not too bad if you ask me for a decent pressure washer. I would recommend the unit to homeowners and pros for up to moderate use. We did upgrade some stuff on the unit such as hoses, wands, quick connect fittings, etc which have doubled the price. (less restriction and more ease of use).
Honda engine-Starts second or third pull every time. gx160 engines are great all around units
AAA Pump- Trash, If something is going to fail, it would be the pump. This specific pump has a lot of internal plastic, which is a no-no when pushing 3000+psi through a small hole. If purchased, i would highly recommend using the aftermarket warranty option, as it will die from regular use.
My expertise with pressure washers and pumps in general is very high as I used to be the assistant manager of Gaithersburg Pump and Supply when I was younger.

Purchased this unit, first units pump was low right out of the box the oil was leaking in the box. Brought it back after I talked to sales men who told me to buy more oil and if it continued to leak he would reinberse me for the oil if I bought it in the store. I decided to to bring back the unit as it shouldn't have leaked to begin with.. 2nd unit had no holes drilled in handle to install it on the machine brought it back and got my money back. The pump said AAA on the side was not a cat pump. Buyer Beware at least open the box put it together in store and hope it doesn't have pump problems later.
