Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS
In summary, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:
- intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
- applying detergent and cleaning solutions
Powered by a 14.3 amp universal motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2300 PSI (around 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Combined, these values mean that the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS has a cleaning power of 3910 Cleaning Units.
Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC2N1HSS is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.
Design & Handling
The AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of L22.5 x W17.8 x H36.5 in. The strong metal frame assures assembly longevity. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the BC2N1HSS convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
Standing at only 31.1 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 7" never-flat 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 BC2N1HSS comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, which are detailed below.
- Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the wand. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
- 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: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.

The AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS'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 BC2N1HSS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.
- With a maximum pressure output of 2300 PSI, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $195 and $255. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Sun Joe SPX4600, which reaches up to 3000 PSI.
- With a maximum GPM of 1.7 (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the top in terms of water flow, in its respective price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Realm BY02-BIMK, that can deliver up to 1.75 GPM.
- The BC2N1HSS, with its 3910 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Realm BY02-BIMK with its 4550 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3500 and 4000 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this pressure washer nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of cleaning power.
