Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC142HS

In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean BC142HS is a light duty pressure washer that allows:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

With a 11 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 1700 PSI (roughly 28 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values as per CSA testing standards), resulting in the AR Blue Clean BC142HS's cleaning power of 2890 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean BC142HS's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D12 x W13 x H29 in, the AR Blue Clean BC142HS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BC142HS convenience of transport.

With a weight of only 16.1 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 4.7" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

Along with the AR Blue Clean BC142HS itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
  • Pressure hose: Using a set of convenient hooks, the included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzle: the following nozzle is included.
