Power

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS

Utilizing a 13-amp universal motor, this machine's aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump can deliver a pressure of 2150 PSI (around 36 times stronger than a standard garden hose) and a flow rate of up to 1.6 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 1700 PSI and the flow rate is 1.1 GPM. Thus, the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS achieves a cleaning power of 1870 Cleaning Units.

The BC383HSS, an electric washer, swiftly activates via a simple ON/OFF switch, ensuring user-friendly startup. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

The AR Blue Clean BC383HSS's commitment to mobility is evident through its 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.

Weighing in at a mere 24.7 lbs, this unit is designed for effortless portability and convenience. Thanks in part to its plastic frame, it remains lightweight. Complementing its lightweight frame, two 6.3" never-flat wheels are integrated, facilitating effortless transportation.

Main Features

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 foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), nozzle cleaner, wand, power cord, pressure hose and spray gun.

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.

  • With its 2150 PSI max pressure output, the AR Blue Clean BC383HSS is in the expected pressure range, for electric units in the $195-255 price range. Prioritizing the highest water stream power? Check out the Sun Joe SPX3000-MAX—a top contender in this price range, delivering up to 2800 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 1.6 GPM (gallons per minute), this washer belongs to the upper end of the above-mentioned price range, as it can deliver a high volume of water. If your priority is efficient debris removal, consider one of the products with the highest GPM in this price range, such as the Westinghouse WPX2700e, boasting 1.76 GPM.
  • The BC383HSS ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 1870 CU. When considering the importance of superior cleaning power, the Pulsar PWE2019 stands out with its 3200 Cleaning Units, boasting one of the highest cleaning efficiencies among similarly priced 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 expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
