- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- cleaning of painted or delicate surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
Its axial cam pump, which utilizes a 200 cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (almost 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 8160 Cleaning Units.

A fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.35 gallon is used to store gasoline.
Design & Handling
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.3 x W20.4 x H40.2 in, the A-iPower PWF3400KV offers great mobility. The robust and sturdy steel tubing frame offers longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.
Weighing 62 lbs, the unit is easy to maneuver by most people. Its 200 cc Kohler XTX950 engine and steel tubing frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. The PWF3400KV can still be easily manipulated and maneuvered, thanks to its two 12" never-flat wheels.
