Zoom on the AR Blue Clean AR2N1
In summary, the AR Blue Clean AR2N1 is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- spot cleaning of hard, paintless surfaces and reaching far-away areas
- thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Using a 13 amp motor, its axial pump delivers a pressure of up to 2050 PSI (roughly 34 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.4 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 2870 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the AR2N1 is started simply by an 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 offers superb mobility, with a hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W18 x H36 in. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the AR2N1 convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Standing at only 36.4 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 8" wheels.
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 comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 5 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap injection: Detergent storage is ensured by a removable 0.2 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio is selected manually, via a dedicated dial. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added 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: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its steel wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
