Zoom on the A-iPower APW3200K
The A-iPower APW3200K, a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- use 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.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler XT775 engine.
A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.37 gallon is used to store 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 strong steel tubing frame assures assembly longevity. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the APW3200K convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The device can be maneuvered with ease by most, since it only weighs 57 lbs. 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: Detergent is stored in a removable tank. If a soap nozzle is attached, the device will proceed to add the detergent to the water automatically.
- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.

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. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse WPX3400, which reaches up to 3400 PSI.
- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. In case you are looking for a device which can most efficiently rinse away debris in the current price range, the Lifan LFQ3370 has the highest GPM of 3.
- The 7680 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the APW3200K sit at an average, in reference to other 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 Lifan LFQ3370 and its 9900 Cleaning Units.
