Zoom on the A-iPower PWF2701SH
The A-iPower PWF2701SH, a medium duty 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
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 196 cc engine, its aluminum axial pump can deliver a pressure of 2700 PSI (around 45 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.3 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the A-iPower PWF2701SH has a cleaning power of 6210 Cleaning Units.
The Senci engine of this gas-powered pressure washer gets started by a classic pull-start mechanism.
Design & Handling
With its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20.6 x W18.2 x H35.9 in, the A-iPower PWF2701SH provides great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The rubber-padded fixed handle adds to the PWF2701SH convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Weighing 57 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 196 cc Senci engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the PWF2701SH has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
The A-iPower PWF2701SH comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Even though the device doesn't have a soap tank, detergent is supplied by a siphon hose. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
- Pressure hose: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The A-iPower PWF2701SH'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 PWF2701SH compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- The A-iPower PWF2701SH, a device which can produce up to 2700 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the gas-powered pressure washers 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.
- The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. 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 3200, that can deliver up to 2.8 GPM.
- The PWF2701SH ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to gas-powered devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 6210 CU (PSI x GPM). If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Predator 3200, which can reach up to 8960 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas-powered washers between 6000 and 6500 Cleaning Units, the A-iPower PWF2701SH is on the expensive side of the price range.
While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
