Zoom on the A-iPower APW2700C
The A-iPower APW2700C, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- use 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.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Senci engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.95 gallon.
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. Its sturdy steel tubing frame provides longevity to the assembly. 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. But, as the APW2700C does have a set of two 8" never-flat wheels, it can be easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The A-iPower APW2700C comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
