Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC383HS

In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean BC383HS is a medium duty pressure washer that allows:

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

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Power

Powered by a 13 amp motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2000 PSI (around 33 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 BC383HS has a cleaning power of 3400 Cleaning Units.

The BC383HS is an electric pressure washer and thus, can be easily started 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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D15 x W14.5 x H32.5 in, the AR Blue Clean BC383HS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.

With a weight of only 21.8 lbs, the unit is definitely easy to carry around. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. On top of its light weight, the transportability and easy of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 6.3" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 2 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: 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: A side hook enables you to easily store the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand.
  • Nozzles: The 2 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the AR Blue Clean BC383HS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • With a maximum pressure output of 2000 PSI, the AR Blue Clean BC383HS finds itself in the expected pressure range among electric units that cost between $150 and $200. In case you are looking for a device with the highest possible power of its water stream, one of the top achievers in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX with a PSI of 2800.
  • In the aforementioned price range, the 1.7 GPM (gallons per minute) of this washer makes it one of the better performing units in terms of the delivered volume of water. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the WEN PW21, with a GPM of 1.76.
  • Reaching up to 3400 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), the BC383HS is one of the more efficient amongst its similarly priced peers. If you are after the highest overall cleaning power, the Realm BY03-VBP-WTR with its 4200 Cleaning Units is one of the products that can achieve the highest cleaning efficiency in this price range.
