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

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

With a 13 amp motor, its aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump delivers a pressure of 2150 PSI (roughly 36 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.6 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer), resulting in the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS's cleaning power of 3440 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS'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 BC383HSS 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 24.7 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Among other factors, the plastic frame plays a role in this light weight. As if this lightweight wasn't enough, the device also features two 6.3" never-flat wheels to further improve its ease of use and of transport.

Main Features

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 3 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: The included 25 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of convenient hooks.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 3 included nozzles, and the respective surfaces they’re appropriate for, are listed in the table below.

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: Included with the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS are also the owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and some basic documentation to get you promptly started, along with several accessories, such as pressure hose, spray gun, power cord, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), nozzle cleaner and wand.

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, which can reach a PSI of 2150, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $170 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.
  • 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 rinsing away debris most efficiently is your priority, one of the devices with the highest GPM in this price range is the Sun Joe SPX2005P, which can reach up to 1.8 GPM.
  • The BC383HSS, with its 3440 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM) sits at the high end of the cleaning efficiency spectrum, when compared to other devices of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Realm BY02-BIMK and its 4550 Cleaning Units has one of the highest cleaning efficiency of all the similarly priced units.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other electric washers between 3000 and 3500 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.
