Zoom on the A-iPower APW2700C
The A-iPower APW2700C is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its aluminum axial cam pump, which utilizes a 196cc (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.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Senci engine.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D19.4 x W16.7 x H36 in, the A-iPower APW2700C provides great mobility. 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.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 57 lbs. A major component of its weight are its 196cc Senci engine and 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. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
- Nozzles: The table below shows you the 3 included nozzles, as well as the surfaces they're the most appropriate for.

- Accessories: Included with the A-iPower APW2700C are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as soap hose, wand, oil, spray gun, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, funnel and tool kit.

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 and its 2700 PSI, ranks amongst gas-powered pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $300 and $400. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 that can reach up to 3400 PSI.
- When compared to devices in the above-mentioned price range, this washer and its 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute), is on the lower end of the achievable water flow. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Predator 3100 has the highest GPM of 2.8.
- Amongst similarly priced gas-powered devices, the 6210 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) of the APW2700C rank as low. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the WEN PW3400 with its 9180 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the A-iPower APW2700C is on the expensive side of the price range.
While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
