The A-iPower APW3200K is a gas-powered pressure washer offering a maximum water pressure of 3200 PSI and flow of 2.4 GPM. (Read full specs)
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 or high reach areas
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
The A-iPower APW3200K's aluminum axial cam pump, powered by a 173 cc engine, can provide a pressure of up to 3200 PSI (approximately 53 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The A-iPower APW3200K thus has a cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.
This gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler XT775 engine is started by a traditional pull-start mechanism.
The fuel is stored in a tank, which can hold up to 0.37 gallon of gasoline.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D22 x W18.1 x H36 in, the A-iPower APW3200K provides great mobility. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the APW3200K convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of 57 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 173 cc Kohler XT775 engine and its steel tubing frame. Since the APW3200K has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
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: A safe detergent storage is facilitated by a removable tank. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- 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 allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

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. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3400 with 3400 PSI.
- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Predator 3100, with a GPM of 2.8.
- 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. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Predator 3200 and its 8960 Cleaning Units.
