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
Using a 14.3 amp motor, its axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (roughly 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). Together, the values result in a cleaning power of 3910 Cleaning Units.
As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC2N1HSS gets easily started by a simple 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 robust and sturdy metal frame offers longevity to the assembly. The foam-padded fixed handle adds to the BC2N1HSS convenience of transport, while offering a comfortable grip.
The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 31.1 lbs. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 7" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.
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.
Along with the AR Blue Clean BC2N1HSS itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles 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 wand. 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 25 ft high-pressure hose can be easily stored on the unit when it is not running.
- Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
