Zoom on the A-iPower APW3200K

The A-iPower APW3200K is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
  • cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

With a 173 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 3200 PSI (roughly 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the A-iPower APW3200K's cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.

The Kohler XT775 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 0.37 gallon of gasoline.

Design & Handling

Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D22 x W18.1 x H36 in, the A-iPower APW3200K offers great mobility. The strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the APW3200K convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.

Most users can maneuver this model easily, as it weighs just 57 lbs. Its 173 cc Kohler XT775 engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. However, the two 12" never-flat wheels allow the APW3200K to be easily manipulated and maneuvered.

Main Features

Along with the A-iPower APW3200K itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
  • 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 4 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

Some of the included accessories

  • Onboard storage: The A-iPower APW3200K features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation), a low oil protection and a thermal relief valve (which helps to prevent internal pump damage).
  • Accessories: Besides the usual owner's manual and documentation to get you promptly started, the A-iPower APW3200K comes with oil, pressure hose, nozzle cleaner, wand, spray gun and funnel.
  • Emissions: The A-iPower APW3200K is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, the sale and purchase of this pressure washer is permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

The A-iPower APW3200K'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 APW3200K compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With 3200 PSI, the A-iPower APW3200K ranks as one that can reach an above average pressure, amongst the gas-powered products that cost between $300 and $400. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with a PSI of 3400.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Predator 3100, with 2.8 GPM.
  • With the APW3200K's 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), its cleaning efficiency range may be considered average, compared to gas-powered units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 7500 and 8000 Cleaning Units, the A-iPower APW3200K is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.

    Impressed.

    + PROS: Very versatile and maneuverable. Basic Knowledge of powerwashing is essential to operate and maintain.
    - CONS: The vibration needs addressing. I lost 3 of the bolts holding down the engine. I did a modification to add quarter inch rubber washers and inch and a half screws and the vibration was normalized.
