Its axial pump, which utilizes a 13 amp motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2050 PSI (almost 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.4 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 2870 Cleaning Units.
Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean AR2N1's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF button. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The AR Blue Clean AR2N1 is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W18 x H36 in. Its sturdy metal frame provides longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the AR2N1 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
With a weight of only 36.4 lbs, the unit is very easy to carry around. A set of two 8" wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
In addition to that, the unit can be detached from the frame to become a versatile hand-carry device that allows you to use it anywhere on-the-go.
The AR Blue Clean AR2N1's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, with a more detailed description below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The unit features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio. The detergent is automatically added to the water when a soap nozzle is connected.
- Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft high-pressure hose is facilitated by a set of convenient hooks.
- Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
