Zoom on the A-iPower PWF2700SH
In a nutshell, the A-iPower PWF2700SH is a medium duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces and high-reach cleaning

- cleaning of painted and fragile surfaces
- application of detergent and cleaning solutions
Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.
With a 196 cc engine, its aluminum axial cam pump delivers a pressure of 2700 PSI (roughly 45 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 PWF2700SH's cleaning power of 6480 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Senci engine.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20.7 x W20.4 x H42.1 in, the A-iPower PWF2700SH provides great mobility. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.
The majority of users will be able to maneuver this unit easily, it only weighs 66 lbs. One of the largest contributors to its weight are its 196 cc Senci engine and its steel tubing frame. Since the PWF2700SH has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
Along with the A-iPower PWF2700SH itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.
- Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a dedicated tank. The A-iPower PWF2700SH includes an automatic soap dilution mechanism, which will dilute the detergent using a 20:1 ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
- Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The A-iPower PWF2700SH'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 PWF2700SH compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With its 2700 PSI max pressure output, the A-iPower PWF2700SH is in the expected pressure range, for gas-powered units in the $240-300 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 Westinghouse WPX3200 with a PSI of 3200.
- This washer reaches 2.4 GPM (gallons per minute) and thus, has an average water flow compared to similarly priced devices. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Powerhorse 89897, which can reach up to 2.6 GPM.
- In comparison to other gas-powered units of similar price, the 6480 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) of the PWF2700SH are average. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Powerhorse 89897 and its 8320 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the A-iPower PWF2700SH is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
