Description

Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS

The AR Blue Clean BC390HSS, a medium duty pressure washer, gives its user an all-around versatile cleaning experience, topped off by the following features:

  • intense cleaning of tough, paintless surfaces
  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions

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

Power

Its axial (wobble plate) pump, which utilizes a 13 amp universal motor, may deliver a pressure of up to 2300 PSI (almost 38 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM. These values correspond to a cleaning power of 3910 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS'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 W16 x H36 in, the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BC390HSS convenience of transport.

The unit can be very easily carried around, as it weighs just 27.8 lbs. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. A set of two 7" never-flat wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

Along with the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, 4 nozzles and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap injection: Detergent is stored in a removable 0.38 gal tank. The device has a dial which allows you to manually select the detergent dilution ratio. The detergent will be added automatically to the water when a soap nozzle is attached.
  • Pressure hose: A neat storage for the included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose is facilitated by a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzles: The 4 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 BC390HSS

The AR Blue Clean BC390HSS

  • 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 BC390HSS 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: Besides the usual owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and documentation to get you promptly started, the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS comes with spray gun, wand, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose and power cord.

The AR Blue Clean BC390HSS'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 BC390HSS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The AR Blue Clean BC390HSS, which can reach a PSI of 2300, achieves an average pressure output, compared to other electric units that cost between $240 and $300. If you're going after the highest possible power of the water stream, one of the best in this price range is the Realm BY02-BIMH-3000 that can reach up to 3000 PSI.
  • With a water flow of up to 1.7 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 you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Greenworks GPW2700, that can deliver up to 2.3 GPM.
  • The 3910 Cleaning Units (PSI x GPM), of the BC390HSS sit at an average, in reference to other electric units of similar price. If you consider the highest overall cleaning power as a really important factor, the Greenworks GPW2700 and its 6210 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 3500 and 4000 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS 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.
