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.
