Description

The user-friendly BC142HS is perfect for the casual user in need of a pressure washer to occasionally clean surfaces such as bicycles, outdoor furniture, and vehicles.

Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC142HS

In summary, the AR Blue Clean BC142HS is a light duty pressure washer, which provides:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The AR Blue Clean BC142HS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC142HS

With a 11 amp universal motor, its aluminum 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). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1300 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM, resulting in the AR Blue Clean BC142HS's cleaning power of 1430 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC142HS is started simply by an 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. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 4.7" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The AR Blue Clean BC142HS

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: The 20 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 wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzle: the following nozzle is included.

Other Features

The specs of the AR Blue Clean BC142HS

The AR Blue Clean BC142HS

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: The AR Blue Clean BC142HS features a handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store nozzles and accessories and be always prepared by having everything needed at hand.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: Included with the AR Blue Clean BC142HS are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as spray gun, wand, power cord, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water).

Product Video

The AR Blue Clean BC142HS's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the AR Blue Clean BC142HS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The AR Blue Clean BC142HS, a device which can produce up to 1700 PSI, is on the lower end of the pressure spectrum, among the electric pressure washers in the $120-150 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse ePX3500, which reaches up to 2500 PSI.
  • Considering the above-mentioned price range, this washer's maximum water flow of 1.7 GPM (gallons per minute) is higher than the average. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Westinghouse ePX3500, with a GPM of 1.76.
  • With 1430 Cleaning Units, the BC142HS is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. In case you are looking for the highest overall cleaning power, in this price range, one of the current champions is the Pulsar PWE2001V and its 3200 Cleaning Units.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 900 and 1600 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BC142HS is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Portable
  • Onboard storage
  • High GPM for the price
WEAKNESSES:
  • On the expensive side
  • Only 1 nozzle included
  • Low PSI for the price
  • Low CU for the price
