Power

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS

Using a 13-amp universal motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of up to 2000 PSI (roughly 33 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). While these PSI and GPM values represent the maximum capabilities of the washer under specific conditions, it's important to note that under typical usage, the working pressure is 1600 PSI and the flow rate is 1.1 GPM. When these values are taken together, they yield a cleaning power of 1760 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric unit, the BC383HS easily starts up with the press of an ON/OFF switch, providing seamless operation. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

Emphasizing mobility as a core feature, the AR Blue Clean BC383HS boasts a portable design and approximate dimensions of D15 x W14.5 x H32.5 in. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.

At just 21.8 lbs, this unit is incredibly lightweight, ensuring hassle-free mobility wherever you need it. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. In addition to its lightweight build, the inclusion of two 6.3" never-flat wheels ensures easy mobility and handling.
