Zoom on the AR Blue Clean AR2N1
The AR Blue Clean AR2N1 is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:
- spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces or high reach areas
- intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
- application of 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
Thanks to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D23 x W18 x H36 in, the AR Blue Clean AR2N1 offers great mobility. The robust metal frame guarantees longevity of 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. 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 unit features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio. Whenever a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent is automatically added to the water.
- Pressure hose: The 25 ft high-pressure hose, which is included with the device, can be stored neatly on the unit itself when idle, using 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.
