As the AR383SS and the AR383 are both AR Blue Clean pressure washers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

  • Fuel: Both units are electric pressure washers.
  • Engine & Pump: The AR Blue Clean AR383SS and the AR Blue Clean AR383 both use an axial-type pump to put water under pressure. These 2 pumps are manufactured by Annovi Reverberi. The AR Blue Clean AR383SS's pump is powered by a 13-amp motor, while the AR Blue Clean AR383 uses a 15-amp motor.

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the AR Blue Clean AR383SS compare to the AR Blue Clean AR383.

  • Pressure: As the AR Blue Clean AR383SS and the AR Blue Clean AR383 share the same maximum attainable pressure of 1900 PSI, they should both allow you to blast off dirt with the same force.
  • Water Flow: When operating at low pressure, the AR383 can generate a noticeably higher maximum volume of water than the AR383SS. It can deliver up to 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute), whereas the AR383SS offers a maximum water flow of 1.3 GPM. The former should thus allow you to rinse away dirt and debris with quite better efficiency and speed.
  • Cleaning Power: With its 2850 C.U. (Cleaning Units = PSI x GPM), the AR383 offers a higher overall cleaning efficiency than the AR Blue Clean AR383SS and its 2470 C.U.

Design Comparison

  • Design: With their compact design, both units are constructed with a strong focus on portability in mind.
  • Weight: With an approximate weight of 26 lbs, the AR383SS is slightly less heavy than the AR383 (which weighs around 27 lbs).
  • Maneuverability: Both products benefit from a set of wheels, which greatly contributes to their maneuverability. Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them.

Feature Comparison

  • Soap Addition: Both washers allow for the addition of chemical detergent solutions to the water. For the AR383, this is achieved via a foam cannon attachment, whereas the AR383SS uses an onboard detergent tank.
  • Trigger Gun & Wand: While each of these 2 units comes with a fairly standard ergonomic trigger gun, the AR Blue Clean AR383SS sports a classic wand, while the AR Blue Clean AR383 has an adjustable one.
  • Nozzles: The AR383 doesn't come with any nozzles (its aforementioned wand removes the need for any), but the AR383SS is supplied with four (0°, 25°, soap, and a turbo nozzle).
  • Reach: With its included 30 ft high-pressure hose, the AR Blue Clean AR383SS will allow you, out of the box, to move farther away from the unit than the AR Blue Clean AR383 and its 20 ft high pressure hose. As both units feature a 35 ft power cord, their maximum allowable placement from an electrical outlet is the same.
  • Storage: The AR383SS and AR383 both offer onboard storage that allows you to neatly keep the accessories you need at hand. Moreover, both feature a reel to allow you to conveniently and neatly store your pressure hose.
  • Accessories: In addition to the usual set of included accessories, the AR Blue Clean AR383 also comes with a Turbo Lance.
