Zoom on the A-iPower PWF3400KV
The A-iPower PWF3400KV is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- cleaning of painted and frail surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
- intense cleaning of hard surfaces
Using a 200 cc engine, its axial cam pump delivers a pressure of up to 3400 PSI (roughly 57 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 8160 Cleaning Units.
A classic pull-start mechanism is responsible for starting the gas-powered pressure washer’s Kohler XTX950 engine.
Gasoline is stored in a fuel tank with a maximum capacity of 0.35 gallon.
Design & Handling
