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 and high-reach cleaning
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
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.
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.

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.
- The A-iPower APW3200K, with a max water pressure of 3200 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the gas-powered products in the $300-400 price range. 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 Stanley SXPW3425 with a PSI of 3400.
- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Predator 3100, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
- Boasting with 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the APW3200K is one of the more efficient devices in its respective price range. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Westinghouse WPX3400 and its 8840 Cleaning Units.
