Description

Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS

In summary, the AR Blue Clean BC390HSS is a medium duty pressure washer, that offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, and also:

  • thorough cleaning of hard, paint-free surfaces
  • use 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

Its axial (wobble plate) pump, which utilizes a 13 amp 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.

As it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC390HSS gets easily started by a simple 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.

Standing at only 27.8 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. 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 storage is ensured by a removable 0.38 gal tank. The detergent dilution ratio can be manually selected, using a dial. When a soap nozzle is connected, the detergent will be added automatically to the water.
  • Pressure hose: The included 25 ft ⌀1/4" high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: A side hook allows for an easy storage of the included classic ergonomic spray gun and its metal wand.
  • Nozzles: The following table illustrates the 4 included nozzles, along with the surfaces which they are the most suitable for.

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: The AR Blue Clean BC390HSS 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, spray gun, power cord, pressure hose and wand.
