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
With a 196 cc (6 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2700 PSI (roughly 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the A-iPower APW2700C's 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.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.
