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 or delicate surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 173 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 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). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 7680 Cleaning Units.
The Kohler XT775 engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
Gasoline storage is facilitated by a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.37 gallon.
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.
Weighing 57 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 173 cc Kohler XT775 engine and steel tubing frame account for a good chunk of that weight. Nethertheless, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, the APW3200K remains very easy to manipulate and maneuver.
The A-iPower APW3200K comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable tank. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically 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.
