Description

Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS is a medium duty pressure washer, that provides its users with an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and enables:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free 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 BC383HSS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

Powered by a 13 amp universal motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2150 PSI (around 36 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 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 1700 PSI and rated flow is 1.1 GPM. Combined, these values mean that the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS has a cleaning power of 1870 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC383HSS 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

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D15 x W14.5 x H32.5 in, the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The telescopic handle further eases storage and offers a convenient pulling height, allowing effortless transportation.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 24.7 lbs. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. On top of its light weight, the transportability and ease of use of this model is further improved by the addition of two 6.3" never-flat wheels.

Main Features

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS's package includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 nozzles and a detergent addition feature, with a more detailed description 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.
  • Nozzles: The 3 nozzles included with the device, and the respective surfaces which they’re the most suitable for, are shown in the following table.

Other Features

The specs of the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS features a handy storage tray, which allows you to neatly store all its nozzles. The storage solution offered by this model is quite singular, as it allows storing the nozzles directly on the gun, instead of on the unit.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS comes with an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you quickly started. On top of that, you also get nozzle cleaner, wand, pressure hose, power cord, spray gun and foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water).

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS'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 BC383HSS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS, with a max water pressure of 2150 PSI, has one of the higher PSI values of the electric products in the $150-170 price range. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse ePX3500, which reaches up to 2500 PSI.
  • The water flow of this washer, which reaches up to 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute) is one of the higher values found in the above-mentioned price range. If being able to rinse away debris as efficiently as possible is your priority, one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range is the Westinghouse ePX3500, with 1.76 GPM.
  • The BC383HSS's Cleaning Units, 1870 CU, fall into the lower end when compared to electric devices of similar price. When it comes to the highest overall cleaning power in the current price range, one of the products at the very top currently is the AR Blue Clean AR2N1 and its 2870 Cleaning Units.

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 1500 and 2000 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS 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.
