Zoom on the A-iPower APW3100

In summary, the A-iPower APW3100 is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • spot cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces and out-of-reach areas
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Using an impressive 208 cc (7 hp) engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3100 PSI (roughly 52 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.5 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7750 Cleaning Units.

The Senci engine of this gas-powered pressure washer relies on an old-school pull-start mechanism to get started.

The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.95 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

The A-iPower APW3100 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 APW3100 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

With a weight of 62 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 208 cc Senci engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 8" never-flat wheels, the APW3100 remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.

Main Features

The A-iPower APW3100's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.

  • Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 3 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.
