Zoom on the A-iPower APW4200
The A-iPower APW4200, 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 or high reach areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- use of detergent and cleaning solutions
With an impressive 420 cc (14 hp) engine, its brass triplex pump delivers a pressure of 4200 PSI (roughly 70 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the A-iPower APW4200's cleaning power of 16800 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Senci SC420 engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 1.7 gallon.
Design & Handling
The A-iPower APW4200 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D32 x W26.5 x H36 in. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The handle adds to the APW4200 convenience of transport.
The unit's weight of 132 lbs renders its carrying and transportation challenging, as it is far from lightweight. The main contributor to its weight are its 420 cc Senci SC420 engine, the triplex pump and steel tubing frame. However, the unit is mobile thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels, which add to its movability and allow it to be manipulated smoothly on the job.
The A-iPower APW4200's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: While the device doesn't feature a soap tank, detergent supply is ensured by a siphon hose. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: The 50 ft ⌀5/16" high-pressure hose (5000 PSI rating), which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using a set of convenient hooks.
