Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC383HS

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS is a medium duty pressure washer, and enables:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC383HS

With a 13 amp universal motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 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). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1600 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM, resulting in the AR Blue Clean BC383HS's cleaning power of 1760 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean BC383HS's motor can be easily started by a convenient 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.

Since the unit weighs only 21.8 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. To further improve its transportability and ease of use, the unit also features a set of two 6.3" never-flat wheels.
