Design & Handling
The A-iPower PWF2701SH offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D20.6 x W18.2 x H35.9 in. The robust steel tubing frame guarantees longevity of 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. A major component of its weight are its 196cc Senci engine and steel tubing frame. The PWF2701SH can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.
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.

- 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: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.

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.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2700 PSI, the A-iPower PWF2701SH finds itself in the expected pressure range among gas-powered units that cost between $240 and $300. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3200 that can reach up to 3200 PSI.
- As this washer can produce a flow of water of 2.3 GPM (gallons per minute), it is average in terms of water volume for the above-mentioned price range. If rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Kärcher G3200Q, which can reach up to 2.6 GPM.
- The 6210 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM), of the PWF2701SH result in an average cleaning efficiency, compared to similarly priced gas-powered units. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Kärcher G3200Q with its 8320 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this 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 average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
