The A-iPower APW2700C is a gas-powered pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 2700 PSI and flow of 2.3 GPM. (Read full specs)
Zoom on the A-iPower APW2700C
In a nutshell, the A-iPower APW2700C is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its aluminum axial cam pump, which utilizes a 196 cc (6 hp) engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 2700 PSI (almost 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 6210 Cleaning Units.
The Senci engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon is used to store gasoline.
Design & Handling
The A-iPower APW2700C offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D28 x W17.5 x H33 in. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the APW2700C convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 57 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Senci engine and its steel tubing frame. However, the two 8" never-flat wheels allow the APW2700C to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.
Along with the A-iPower APW2700C itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is fed in through a siphon hose, since the device lacks a soap tank. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The A-iPower APW2700C's performance versus other pressure washers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the A-iPower APW2700C compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The A-iPower APW2700C, which can achieve a PSI of up to 2700, falls behind the other gas-powered pressure washers in the $240 to $300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Rainier RPX3200 with 3200 PSI.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Excell EPW2123100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
- With 6210 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the APW2700C is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced gas-powered devices. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Excell EPW2123100 with its 8680 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the A-iPower APW2700C is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
